Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children. No Solicitations. No Visitors. No Quests. Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere...else. But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children. Nancy tumbled once, but now she's back. The things she's experienced...they change a person. The children under Miss West's care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world. But Nancy's arrival marks a change at the Home. There's a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it's up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of things. No matter the cost.… (mer)

Will almost certainly pick up one of the sequels, eventually. ( )

I really love Seanan's work. Love it to death. But... this I didn't love.

This book left me cold for reasons I both can and can't explain. It wasn't a bad book, but neither was it the phenomenal read on a subject I thought she'd both give both life and love to. Disappointing, in a word. Not because it's bad, but because it's merely okay.

There's a heavy handedness here. A bit of preaching, a lot of wonder, worlds that needed to be built and expanded upon, words that those of us who have walked, in our way, the Portals will get... but while the characters were vibrant the world felt like a half-baked cake. Sure, it would still be tasty on the tongue (and who doesn't like batter?), but it'd still not be what I expected or wanted.

I feel like it needed to be longer, better fleshed. We needed more time with these really vibrant characters to really care that they start snuffing it. But we didn't get that.

So-- a half-baked cake of a book. Tasty, but not what it should have been. So, three starts. ( )

This is my second read for this book. I DNF-ed with a two-star rating the first time but always felt I was maybe unfair in my opinions. I've seen a lot of people get frustrated with this book or the series in general for not being quite what they had hoped, and I tend to agree that the book is not at all what I expected. It suffers from a very interesting premise and pretty average writing. On the whole, I enjoyed it this time around, but I still feel like it could be improved on.

To begin with, I never much connected with Nancy as a main character. While I was interested in the world she had visited, she never had very much personality to speak of, and meanwhile, the surrounding cast of characters, even the minor ones, were infinitely more interesting. Second, there are parts of the story that are actually rather gruesome but the plot itself is very juvenile/obvious, so the confusion of tone makes it hard to determine what the author intended this book to be. Third, it was always going to be a meta concept, and that's alright. I enjoy meta. However, it was always stated so implicitly, and usually more than once in the exact same terms, that the meta lost meaning and just became annoying.

And I only list all of these faults Because the premise is so great, it's honestly hard to admit how mediocre the novella is in itself. I would like to continue reading this series to see if maybe the author manages to better develop some of the other characters, especially since the next one is Jack & Jill's story, and I am a big fan of Jack's character and would be very interested in seeing more of Jill. But now my expectations are tempered, so maybe I'll be able to enjoy it casually instead of the fanatic joy I was expecting when I first picked up this book.

3 stars seems right, less judgmental than 2 because it really isn't a bad book but it's still not able to climb over all that heavy-handed exposition and boring MC to reach a 4. ( )

Great story for anyone who feels lost or out of step with their world. ( )

4,5/5 Lo he devorado en una noche.

Me ha trasladado a cuando me encerraba en mi armario como si fuese la puerta a otro mundo o parte de una nave espacial. A cuando soñaba en aventuras cruzando un cuadro (normalmente de un castillo). Pero también me ha hablado de como encontrar tu hueco en el mundo, en como superar la perdida de tu hogar (ya sea porque se cierra una puerta o por algún otro evento) y a buscar tu propio hogar o al menos intentarlo.

Una maravilla de libro. ( )

You're nobody's rainbow.

You're nobody's princess.

You're nobody's doorway but your own, and the only one who gets to tell you how your story ends is you.
"Hope hurts. That's what you need to learn, and fast, if you don't want it to cut you open from the inside out. Hope is bad. Hope means you keep on holding to things that won't ever be so again, and so you bleed an inch at a time until there's nothing left."
We notice the silence of men. We depend upon the silence of women.
"You had milk, I had science," said Jack. "It's amazing how much of culinary achievement can be summarized by that sentence. Cheese making, for example. The perfect intersection of milk, science, and foolish disregard for the laws of nature."
"I am a genius of infinite potential and highly limited patience. People shouldn't try me so."
