Book Review #1463 The Grave Robber's Apprentice by Allan Stratton
Book Review #1463
The Grave Robber's Apprentice by Allan Stratton
Rating: one star (out of four)
Unfortunately, I was not impressed with this book at all. I've read other books by Stratton before and I really enjoyed them, but this book just didn't cut it for some reason. Even though it was clearly a juvenile novel, it still felt like it should have been marketed for an even younger audience. I thought the characters were flat and I wished I could have seen more maturity from the two children. The book was also fairly unsettling/creepy at times, but that didn't add up with the rest of the story and felt disjointed. I thought the plot was predictable as well. I almost didn't finish this book, but I figured since it was short I could read all the way through. But it was disappointing. Not something I'd recommend.
