The Fall by Garth Nix

The Fall (The Seventh Tower, #1)The Fall by Garth Nix

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Since I have become a full-blown Garth Nix fan, I looked for his other titles, and found The Sevent Tower series. This first installment surprised me in a couple of ways. First, it is significantly shorter than the books (and series) I am used to reading. I guess that I am stepping down a reading level or two, since I would put this one within the reach of 3rd-6th graders. A bit young for my tastes. The other surprising thing is that even though it is short, and for a younger crowd, I still enjoy his characters and world. In about 20 minutes of reading he has set the stage for another fantastical world that makes sense, but is on the abstract side. I guess one of the reasons I like his stuff is because it is the type of stories I would like to come up with.
