About "Garth Nix"

  1. Garth Nix

    Garth Nix was born in 1963 in Melbourne, Australia, to the sound of the Salvation Army band outside playing Hail the Conquering Hero Comes or possibly Roll Out the Barrel Garth left Melbourne at an early age for Canberra the federal capital and stayed there till he was nineteen, when he left to drive around the UK in a beat up Austin with a boot full of books and a Silver Reed typewriter.Despite a wheel literally falling off the Austin, Garth survived to return to Australia and study at the University of Canberra After finishing his degree in 1986 he worked in a bookshop, then as a book publicist, a publisher s sales representative, and editor Along the way he was also a part time soldier in the Australian Army Reserve, serving in an Assault Pioneer platoon for four years Garth left publishing to work as a public relations and marketing consultant from 1994 1997, till he became a full time writer in 1998 He did that for a year before joining Curtis Brown Australia as a part time literary agent in 1999 In January 2002 Garth went back to dedicated writer again, despite his belief that full time writing explains the strange behaviour of many authors.He now lives in Sydney with his wife, two sons and lots of books.

  1. This book was hard to read, but not for the reasons you re probably thinking of.Garth Nix s writing was the best it s ever been It s not my favorite style, but I like it nonetheless The plot was engaging, the pacing was good not fantastic, but not widely variable or unbearably slow and the worldbuilding was, as usual, wonderful.This was hard for me to read because Clariel reminded me a lot of myself when I was younger.My parents took me out of the public school system after 8th grade and enrolle [...]

  2. If I die before this book comes out, Garth, I assure you that no Abhorsen will be able to prevent me from coming back for it Oh My GOD Can it be An actual cover And a release date What good deed did I do to finally deserve this Let s hope I manage to stay alive for a few monthsI d rather not have to battle any Abhorsens if I can avoid it.

  3. First of all, let me get this out of the way everyone calling Clariel the character names can shut the hell up I m pissed as hell at the number of people writing her off as a bitch, whiny, self centered, etc especially when that s the extent of their critique of the book It smells of misogyny and it needs to stop.Now, as for the bookI ve been waiting for this book for a long time pretty much since I read the original trilogy and first came across rumors that this was in the works It had a high s [...]

  4. Received an ARC of the book Currently about 1 4 of the way through.ial thoughts this book is suffering from the same thing that made me dislike Lirael lack of action, too much build up.Sabriel worked out so well because the beginning was quite fast paced Problem arises, Sabriel makes the decision to do something about it and she s off to the races I can t stand it when the protag is sort of wishy washy about going for his her goals I know situations change as information is revealed, but at lea [...]

  5. I hate to give this one star because I really love Garth Nix and the Abhorsen books, but there were so many things I didn t like about this book 1 Clariel Wow I don t think I have ever disliked a heroine So selfish, so self absorbed, and just not interesting at all No one cares about your stupid forest, move on.2 What was this book supposed to be Weird YA finishing school book fantasy All I know is almost all of it was dull Reading about the guild outfits and the clothes in general was dull, th [...]

  6. Much like the Legend of Korra, this long awaited sequel follows the ostensibly dramatic and exciting adventure of an uncharismatic and constantly whining main character in a setting that is nostalgic until you realize its rather whiny as well Wonder how a setting can be whiny Supporting characters fade into the background, until you look around and wonder is this inn haunted by a complaining ghost or what The story somehow fails to convey the sense of urgency and humor that characterized the pre [...]

  7. Garth Nix wrote a new Abhorsen book And not only that, there s going to be yet another new Abhorsen book after this one How exciting is that One of the things I really liked about the book was the portrayal of the main character s sexuality People keep running around and being like, marriage dating these are the most important things and instead, she s, how do you have time for this people are trying to kill us and also, my career is far important to me than any possibility of romance I feel li [...]

  8. THANK GOD IT S OVER That was one of the most painful reading experiences I have had in a long time I honestly have not idea why the author felt this book needed to exist.It really didn t.Now, it was a long time ago that I read the Old Kingdom trilogy, but I am vaguely aware of liking it, if I can t quite remember the details For example I have no idea who Clariel is supposed to become in the original series Her name is mentioned at the end of the book, and it rings a bell, but considering how ut [...]

  9. I loved the first two books in the series during high school, and I believe Abhorsen came out when I was in college, but ask any woman on earth and she ll tell you that men never really grow up, so there you go It s been a long, long, loooooooong wait for stories that take place in this world, and I m excited to see that Garth Nix has plans for it in the future.Unfortunately, Clariel was a little disappointing to me The other books are just so good, and this one, while not exactly bad, doesn t [...]

  10. Out of the series so far I felt that this was one of the best ones Clariel is a nice strong female lead character and although she makes lots of mistakes she never gives up It was interesting to see much of Mogget whose character I still have not really worked out I wonder if a future book will feature him and explain what he actually is and why he is bound I have really liked this series so far and really enjoy Garth Nix s world building The idea of the Abhorsen is excellent as is chartered an [...]

  11. It s a bit surprising to me to see the disappointed reviews of this, because I quite enjoyed it Of course, it s a different world to the one Sabriel enters, and different even from the world that Lirael and Sameth have to navigate as Sabriel and Touchstone work on restoring the Old Kingdom This one doesn t feature any contact with Ancelstierre, and is set before even Touchstone Torrigan s time So naturally, the concerns of its people, the politics, are all quite different It s interesting to see [...]

  12. I was lucky enough to get a ARC of this at BEA in New York and let me tell you it was worth the ten years of waiting I can t get kids at my school to read the series, or if they do they don t tell me about it, but they are nuts is all I can say because this stuff is so good it makes my head hurt I look into the air as I read this and look for Charter Marks None yet but I am not giving up hope The story took some time to build but now I am bereft that it is over I was hoping for magic early on b [...]

  13. IF I hear one word about Clariel s stupid forest, I am buying a chainsaw _ Ok, so with THIS out of the way, I can safely say I enjoyed Clariel But didn t feel like a part of the Old Kingdom series In fact, it felt like a pretty good YA novel, with an angsty teen trying to fit in the world while being misunderstood and hindered by the ignorant, unreliable adults.The first 25% were absolutely amazing and filled with so much potential The setting was interesting, the world building was even bette [...]

  15. I wonder if this book is really ever going to come out I believe I first saw that is was to be published in 2010 Then 2011, now, I come back and make sure it didn t sneak up on me and I can finally read it and there saying 2012 Ugh I really hope they put this book out soon Or stop teasing us and take it off of here.

This review was originally posted on Young Adult At HeartSUMMARYClariel is better known as the centuries old necromancer and later the Greater Dead creature Chlorr of the Mask in Lirael This is her early storyOTClariel wants nothing than to live as a Borderer in the Great Forest of Estwael So when she is dragged by her Master Goldsmith mother Jaciel to Belisaire, to marry the Governer s son Aronzo and forever be trapped in a life she is desperate to escape, Clariel takes steps to ensure her own [...]

  17. Holy guacamole I love the Abhorsen trilogy I literally gasped and fell out of my chair when I saw that there was going to be a fourth Thank you, Garth Nix

  18. 2.5 starsArc provided by Harper Collins through EdelweissIt was my intention to re read the previous books of this Old Kingdom series, before picking this one up.Unfortunately I wasn t able to find the necessary time to do it, and I only got to read about half of the first book, Sabriel, before starting with this one And although I do still like Sabriel, I am afraid that time seems to have diluted my love for this series The writing never seemed to flow I read Sabriel for the first time ever, al [...]

  19. This review originally appeared on my blog, Books Without Any Pictures bookswithoutanypictures 20Disclaimer This is a ridiculously early review.When I was a teenager, I was obsessed with Garth Nix s Abhorsen trilogy I read and re read Sabriel and Lirael until the paperbacks very clearly showed how much they d been loved, and jumped for joy when Abhorsen was finally released Nix s stories had everything to love undead villains, strong protagonists, sarcastic kitties, bardic weapons, and enchanted [...]

  20. I just found out about this and am giddily happy More in Sabriel s world yay yay yay yay Even if I do have to wait until 2010 ETA it s 2014 and this is finally out Internets, why did you not tell me sooner

  21. Not what I expected The Old Kingdom looked like it was fraying, but I thought this wanted for details about why everyone was shirking their duties, hiding their Charter marks, etc What about the lost princess Did everyone just run away because reasons pressure not wanting to bother Clariel wasn t a character I could push myself to care for too whiny, too much I want to go back to the Forest too often The first half of the book was kind of boring, and then when things started to pick up, Clariel [...]

  22. Obviously its not fair to review this since I didn t finish it but I just can t take it any Garth Nix s Abhorsen books are just wonderful I believe I waxed rhapsodic about Tim Curry s outstanding narration of the first three books in this series that chronicle two kingdoms the Old Kingdom where the Charter basically a magic that connects everything in the kingdom rules and necromancer s, free magic users, and the dead are kept in check by the Abhorsen basically a wizard who can walk in death usi [...]

  23. 3.5It s difficult for me to rate this novel For a start, it didn t engage me until nearly half way through This is partly because this is a prequel to the other Abhorsen novels and the world we are thrust into is not what it will later become It s also because its protagonist, Clariel, is at first a difficult character to like and engage with Until that half way point, the novel felt static and I could have put it down at any point In fact, I accidentally left it on my work desk before a week lo [...]

  24. Maybe I was in a bad mood Maybe I read it too fast Maybe I don t remember the Abhorsen trilogy well enough Maybe, being no longer teenaged, I no longer resonate the same way with teenaged protagonists Maybe time and nostalgia have rendered those books flawless in my heart, and nothing could stack up view spoiler Maybe not knowing before hand that this is the story of Chlorr of the Mask robbed me of some essential perspective hide spoiler Maybe it breaks my heart, but my feelings are hovering bet [...]

  25. This is a prequel, and prequels can be dicey, so let me just start by saying this could have been much, much, much worse.Clariel is the story not of how young Clariel becomes Chlorr of the Mask from the original series like I was expecting it to be but of how the foundations for that eventual change are laid Seventeen year old Clariel moves with her family to the city of Belisaere Clariel s a girl of the forest, so right away this makes her unhappy, but the city and the people she encounters are [...]

  26. I ve been waiting for another novel set in the world of the Old Kingdom for a long time now, and, despite having moments that brought back the enjoyment of LIRAEL and SABRIEL, the long ago prequel to SABRIEL doesn t quite live up to expectationsARIEL leans heavily towards the YA styling s of Garth Nix s other fantasy series targeted at that demographic The toned down storytelling is evident, as is the teenage angst and constant reference to love despite Clariel s predicament even though she show [...]

  27. 2.5I didn t hate this book, but considering that the original trilogy is still one of my Top 10 of all time, and how long we ve been waiting for this prequel I am all hella kinda of disappointed.I feel like the biggest issue with this book is that Clariel is just so one dimensional Well, that and the fact that kinda everyone sucks except Belatiel and Kargrin I kinda think the book might been better if it were written about Belatiel and Clariel stayed a secondary character, but we learned about h [...]

  28. Taking us back to a time, a time before the story many of us already know and love d if you don t already know well that s ok tooClariel returns us to the land of the original Abhorsen trilogy but at least 600 years preceding the events that take place in the first book, Sabriel The main character this time is a 16 year old Clariel, a cousin to the king and daughter of a renowned goldsmith who is also a daughter to the current Abhorsen Clariel is very unhappy because she has been forced to leave [...]

  29. Six hundred years before Sabriel was born, the Abhorsen family was large and the Old Kingdom so peaceful that they didn t even bother patrolling it Clariel is the teenaged daughter of a famed goldsmith and related to both the royal family and the Abhorsen Her bloodline pulls her into a political battle between the guilds and the king, but her personality draws her toward the solitary peace of the Great Forest Although she is torn between expectations and her own ambition, Clariel s life narrows [...]
