    MOBI James Thurber #182; MOBI The 13 Clocks Kindle #8608; The 13 ePUB #180; #182; opel rallyede clocks pdf, The 13 kindle, The 13 Clocks eBookBeyond the absurdity of the Shrek universe satire satire product placement nostalgic nod satire this one actually pays tribute to those acts of chivalry so prevalent in fairy tales and children's books It is witty playful but also deep and adult It has as one ogre who really gets on my nerves would say many layers just like an onion doesThis is better than Le Petit Prince GASP rather in tune with my if I do have any I guess I know that I do American proclivities than that other Children's night time story This one's heroic and valiant that other melancholic and existential but this one has great strings of laughs a strikingly animated imagination and it has brilliant sections it is yep too short for my liking Its sole mistake is not reserving time for the reader to take in the freshness experience the whimsy that borders on that singular Wonderlandesque feeling

Who can I blame? I only heard of the book because Neil Gaiman wrote an introduction I think to a new edition in which he highly praises 13 Clocks I ordered a copy from the library an older copy without the Gaiman introductionour library system doesn't have the new edition yet and I read the entire text in about an hour maybe a little less 13 Clocks reads like a lovely meld of The Phantom Tollbooth and Gaiman's n

    MOBI James Thurber #182; MOBI The 13 Clocks Kindle #8608; The 13 ePUB #180; #182; opel rallyede clocks pdf, The 13 kindle, The 13 Clocks eBookA wonderful introduction by Neil Gaiman and and an interesting foreword by the author got me excited to read this book but I admired it than I enjoyed it While I did smile and even chuckle at times it just wasn’t my cup of tea It was clever but in my opinion not that brilliant and I simply didn’t find it emotionally satisfying or that entertaing It was just okay for me though I did like it well enough I’m very aware that this may simply not have been the right book at the right time for me I think one issue is that I often don’t like fairy tales I thought I’d like this one
