Where the Rock Splits the Sky by Philip Webb - review by Nikhil
What impressed me most about the book was the author’s truly unique writing style: one that abounds with wit and of which every sentence is thoughtfully constructed. It really engrosses the reader and makes the book engaging to read, rather than a chore. This writing style of the author, which incorporates modern forms of sarcasm that may appeal to the younger generation while still remaining dignified in tone, is truly what makes the book great.
Furthermore, the novel is rich with literary devices such as irony, character development, foreshadowing, and metaphors. It would be a good addition to a school library. I think the book would be a good free reading choice. It could also make for a good book club discussion for both boys and girls.
