Did anyone read these books? They were an emotional rollercoaster....
also VERY dark. I also read the deptford histories. Did he do the Whitby witches too? They were all, as I said, DARK.
I remember being pretty devastated at times. I might re-read them, now I'm like 10 years older...
being pierced by a falling icicle :(
got beheaded as well
the alchemists cat first, so it kinda ruined the twist at the end of dark portal.
When will they make movie sout of these?
books were my childhood favourite. I know I have copies in the house somewhere...im tempted to look an amazon nethertheless
Thomas and The Oaken Throne. The bats who dropped bombs and stuff were just too cool for a child to contemplate.
i have some catching up to do.
fuck the Unbearable Lightness of Being, I bet it hasn't got a single talking animal fight in it.
OMG I cried when Picadilly(?) came back as a zombie and nearly killed that girl mouse but didn't. I was 11 at the time though.
Excellent books, I did have the Alchemist's Cat but I lent it to someone and I don't think I have it anymore :(
There was also another one with a squirrel and a bat and that was equally tragic if I remember rightly.
They messed with me.
Ever read the histories? Thomas was really really nasty.
and the Whitby witches, also very very dark.
were even darker. Thomas was in short, a twat in that book, and was pretty reformed in the original books
but the Oaken Throne and The Alchemist's Cat were both excellent, as I've already said.
Would it be acceptable to put these books on my to-read list? Or would the librarian laugh at me hysterically and tell me to grow up?
