    One thought on “Thomas”

    1. Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma: which reading list to follow it up with? Variety is the spice of life, so I’ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously. This book falls into my FINISHING THE SERIES! list.I loves me a good series! But I'm terrible for starting a new series before finishing my last - so this reading list is all about trying to close out those series I've got on the go.As a kid, I was a big fan of the Deptford Mice [...]

    2. This is book 3 of the prequels to the Deptford Mice trilogy, but it stands alone. And will probably make you want to read all the other books, too.Super dark and really well written. The mice have their own mouse/english country bumpkin dialect and mythology. We've got a classic tale of good v. evil in the form of the Green (good-some kind of prophet/god. Vaguely Buddha-esque) vs. super evil snake demon and his hideous servants. The Dark Despoiler, reminiscent of Voldemort in HP 1, is trying to [...]

    3. So many references to other books in the series, I'm not sure how many people would get into this stand-alone, but it's a good yarn.By this stage in his career, I feel like Jarvis knew his audience and what he could get away with. Which is to say that this book feels darker and more violent than any of his previous outings and the ending is the most morally ambiguous of any of his books to date.Still, if you like his other stuff, this is another great yarn.

    4. The last of the Deptford Histories features more of the sort of dark entertainment you'd expect from Jarvis, this time focussing on a young Thomas Triton and his adventures at sea.

    5. I haven't read the other books in this series but this was fairly entertaining, for a book about mice who act like people.
