Winterhouse

Read Ì Winterhouse 104 Ben Guterson ☆ 4 review As many charms―most notably its massive library It’s not long before she locates a magical book of puzzles that will unlock a mystery involving Norbridge and his sinister family But the deeper she delves into the hotel’s secrets the Elizabeth starts to realize that she is somehow connected to Winterhouse A. 3 stars She was good at all sorts of puzzles word searches hangman acrostics cryptograms any puzzle with words Although I am not part of Winterhouse s target audience I do enjoy reading the occasional book aimed towards younger readers as they can be uite uplifting and entertaining reads In fact I picked Winterhouse up hoping for a light and amusing readwhich it wasoccasionally and the artwork was very cute I m not sure Winterhouse lives up to its summary It has plenty of clever puzzles and word plays but it lacked oomph Winterhouse has an intriguing yet familiar premise Elizabeth Somers is an orphan who is raised by uncaring relatives and who doesn t have any friends She is a precocious bibliophile she does bring up some childhood favourites such as Inkheart The Golden Compass and The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe who is a fan of puzzles especially anagrams and of using long or clever words not always successfully One Christmas her aunt and uncle decide to go on a holiday without her and so without any explanation or apology they send to the Winterhouse hotel Once there Elizabeth meets Winterhouse s eccentric owner the kind librarian a boy who happens to be as bespectacled and puzzle lover as she is and a sinister couple While there was a lot to like once at Winterhouse Elizabeth s behaviour becomes increasingly annoying She is bossy towards her new friend and repeatedly jumps to silly conclusions The mystery of Winterhouse is weakened by the incredibly cartoonish villains and by a general lack of atmosphere The rather obvious connection between two characters did not in fact come across as a surpriseThe setting which had so much potential never came to life It remained rather nondescript All in all this was an okay MG read The simple writing style and story reminded me of The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood At times it seemed that the narrative was trying to be as uirky and clever as a book by Lemony Snicket but it doesn t uite succeedRead reviews on my blog View all my reviews on Goodreads
