Miss Print’s Re-Prints: February 2008 Edition

missprintreprintMiss Print’s Re-Prints is a weekly feature that will post on Saturday. Each week I’ll highlight reviews I wrote during a previous month in this blog’s run.

Currently I am Re-Printing 2008 reviews.

February 2008: Volume 1

  • February 5, 2008: Hitler’s Canary by Sandi Toksvig–“Based on accounts of her own grandparents’ work in the Danish resistance, Toksvig tells a compelling story of the many Danes who helped smuggle Danish Jews out of the country to Sweden before they were taken to Hitler’s Concentration camps”
  • February 6, 2008: Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones“Although this novel is largely timeless, the prose has a charmingly Victorian tone–taking its time to arrive at the action, the better to familiarize readers with the characters involved and show the readers just how fantastic they (and the story) really are.”
  • February 13, 2008: Cupidity by Caroline Good–“This comedy of errors is mildly amusing, but in the long run there are too many near-misses and mix ups to make the story anything but frustrating as Laura stumbles along trying to get things back to normal and find true love.”
  • February 20, 2008: How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff–“And frankly, despite my criticisms here, Rosoff does have some really nice lines. She writes with a sincerity that makes you really want to believe Daisy knows what she’s doing.”
  • February 27, 2008: Bad Kitty by Michele Jaffe–“It has some teen romance, some mystery/suspense, and a lot of comedy. A lot of times, that doesn’t all come together to make a decent novel–with “Bad Kitty” it does.”
