The Innocent Mage

Teen Rating: Hilariously funny. However strangely (when in comparison with other novels in general) Miller built up the tempo and intensity of the book, only to have the resulting climax in the subsequent novel.  However unorthodox the approach to writing a novel or short story, the lingering uneasy effect it had on me changed over time. I was now fully capable of seeing the whole story for what it was made of and not the route it took. In other words by stepping off the beaten track, Miller as avoided any sense of ‘déjá vu’ by avoiding creating a cliche story line, which would take away from the mastery of her ‘build up’ to the climax and the actual content of her novel. As strange as it sounds, it’s effect actually seems to have worked, for me at least! Does it work for you?     4.7/5      14+ Continue reading The Innocent Mage
