4.0 su 5 stelle might make you rethink some of those children books 27 gennaio 2016
Di nekojita - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Recensione Vine di un prodotto gratuito ( Cos'è? )
I've been a fan of Seanan McGuire since her October Daye series, which are wonderful and a blend of fantasy and mystery. Couldn't get into her InCryptid as much, but she is a talented writer with a great imagination who can blend darkness well with her stories without making them inaccessible. I was interested in her Every Heart a Doorway when I saw a teaser for it, so of course I was happy to review it.

I think my biggest disappointment is that this was so short, a novella, because there's so much promise to this world. The premise is the children who somehow found a way to those 'other worlds', the underworlds, the fairy world, the worlds without logic or light.... Eleanor/Ely West runs a school/boarding house where she takes them in to give them a home, and it starts off with Nancy's arrival. Nancy has returned from an underworld and wants to return more than anything. In part, the school is there to help her accept that she most likely can't.

Not long after Nancy's arrival, one of the other children is murdered, and that sets up the main plot of the book, who is the murderer and why. Being a new arrival and from a 'dark' world, Nancy is considered suspect and so she, along with some of the other children, set out to figure out the reason for the death(s). The plot is suspenseful, something McGuire does well, and there are clues left for the reader so the ending doesn't come out of left field or seem too illogical. My main complaint is the ending of the book does seem a bit rushed, especially Nancy's ending, making me wish that this had been a bit of a longer book. I wish we could know a bit more about some of the children and the worlds, seen a little more about their background... perhaps there will be more in the future books. But what is here is more than enough to get me hooked, I will say, to want the next book. The writing is great and so is the premise, and I enjoyed the characters the author did focus on as some of them were refreshing and not your average takes ( such as Sumi).

5.0 su 5 stelle Doors go both ways. 7 aprile 2016
Di Trundle Bear - Pubblicato su

One of my favourite things about Seanan McGuire (and the list is long, believe me) is that she really understands stories. Not just how to tell them, how to write them, but how we often put our experiences up as stories, we use stories as teaching devices and cautionary tales, there is always a beginning, middle, and end. Even when life doesn't generally work that way.

Every Heart a Doorway is told with the haunting descriptions and fantastic characterization I expect from this author, but there were so many delightful surprises in a book that is honestly very dark and full of pain. An asexual main protagonist! And it's no big deal! A trans man! And it's no big deal! (Actually a deal is made of it for about half a page, and the person making a deal of it is a total jerk, and it totally crosses the line for everyone else). People exist and it doesn't change the story in any way because it's not about sex nor gender!

So honestly, if you're a Seanan McGuire fan, you already know you'll love this -- it's everything she does in a stand-alone, top-notch read. If you're new, then prepare yourself, because you are going to feel ALL the feels. Murder mystery in a boarding school was never so emotional! Especially with the paranormal elements.

I love the idea that the children who find the doorways -- the ones we've heard of, from The Door In The Hedge to Narnia (which is mocked, hah) to The Door In The Wall (which has stuck with me since I read it as a child) -- to magical lands, lands where they are wanted, where they finally fit in, where they live heroic or tragic lives... and for one reason or another come back to our world. Some voluntarily, others not -- but what the students here all share is that they want to find their doors again. They want to go home. This resonates on such a deep level, because I'm sure we all wanted to find a place of magic and adventure and be whisked away because we felt like we didn't belong.

This book made me cry. The descriptions of the doorways that were there, patiently waiting for their children to return, even after they've died. The sacrifices made in the name of love and family. The pain of waiting, of wishing, of wanting to belong again, of finding yourself returned to a world where you're a square peg in a round hole.

I highly recommend this story if you enjoy books by authors such as Robin McKinley, TJ Kingfisher/Ursula Vernon, or liked Naomi Novik's latest fantasy book. This was an instant comfort read for me, and is sticking around on my Kindle for re-reads in the future.

4.0 su 5 stelle What happens to the teenagers whose portal worlds spit them back out again? YA, mild horror. 17 novembre 2016
Di Margaret - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
A door appears--a tiny door tucked into the porch railing that shrinks you when you open it, a rainbow door that leads you to a nonsense, rainbow world, a door that leads you to the land where Death is lord.

Every Heart a Doorway isn't a story about those portal worlds, but rather about what happens after, after the portal world becomes your home for years and then spits you back out into reality, where your parents think you've been kidnapped for months or years, and their home can never be your home. You're different now--the portal world has taught you how to be truly you.

These teens are sent to Eleanor's home for wayward children. Everyone in the home has been through a portal world, and everyone wishes to find their door again and return. Nancy is a new student whose portal world was where Death reigned. She's assigned to room with Sumi, a nonsense girl. This could be a new home for Nancy, but when a student dies, and then another, this new home is threatened, unless the students can figure out what's happening.

I loved the concept and the bizarre mental states of all the teens. The characters are oddly dissociative when the murders start happening, but then, that's not altogether surprising considering where they've been, and how they've had to adapt to a new way of being in their portal worlds. I'm definitely reading the next.

Also, such a lovely cover and title!

Do you ever wonder what happens to those children that return from the wardrobe, rabbit hole, portal, doorway, etc.? For those that don’t really want to come back—for whom the real world is no longer “home,” those that will never stop looking for a way back—Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children offers a respite. It’s a place where said children can be in an environment with others like them, and hopefully help them to understand that they may never return to those other places.

Nancy is new to school having returned a couple of months ago from the Halls of the Dead. Her parents want the happy, colorful girl back. Nancy just wants to be still. And while she’s having difficulty understanding terms such as “Nonsense, Logic, Wickedness, and Virtue” (think of them like points of a compass), at Eleanor West’s Nancy at least feels somewhat understood. That is, until her arrival also marks the arrival of mysterious darkness onto the campus. Now, Nancy, with the help of some hard-won friends, will have to figure out what’s happening otherwise they all risk losing the one place they’re accepted.

Seanan McGuire never lacks for great storytelling, but in Every Heart a Doorway she really outdoes herself. “What happens next?” is such an interesting question, with endless possibilities as the answer. Within a relatively short amount of pages, McGuire conveys so many variations on the different worlds. I hope we’ll get a chance to explore more in future books.

I was a bit surprised when the mystery aspect was introduced to the story. I wasn’t really thinking things would go in that direction mainly due to the fact that I would probably have been fine with just learning more about these children and the various worlds they encountered. I understand there has to be an occurrence that pushes the story forward, I just think because the story itself was so short, there wasn’t enough time to develop it enough.

I wish there had been a bit more time to explore the terminology because, like Nancy, I felt like my grasp on what it means to be in a world that is, for example, “high Logic, high Wicked” was tentative at best, I understood things enough, but I guess I just wanted more. I suppose leaving readers wanting more is never really a bad thing, and I hope the more stories we get in this world, the better understanding will come.

I felt the overall tone of the story was bittersweet. Heartbreaking when you think about these children being “thrown out” of the only places where they’ve ever felt acceptance, and not only to return to a reality where they still feel like outcasts but to continue to yearn to go back to a place, yet many won’t get that opportunity.

I did love the quirky, oftentimes outright weird personalities of all the children we encounter. They have all definitely been shaped differently by the unique places they’ve been, but share a common thread at the core of themselves in that they miss their homes.

This is another winner from Seanan McGuire, and one that could easily be read in a lazy afternoon. You just might spend the rest of your day looking for your own doorway.

3.0 su 5 stelle Could have had so much more! 19 giugno 2017
Di Nicole - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Everything about this novella (and it is a novella, not a full length book...for $9.99!) could have been so much more. The story could have been told in more depth and detail; the characters could have had more depth to them (and there were a lot of characters to choose from to tell a greater story), even the house could have ben developed more. It's disappointing that Seanan McGuire didn't put all three of these novellas in the Wayward Children series together in a much longer book. By the time you get started in the book with Nancy's story, you've been marginally told of several other stories and you are just rushed right through to the end. This novella was just a rush through what could have been a much better book. And for $9.99, you had better really want to read this one.....
