REVIEW ✓ The Wind Singer READ The Wind Singer The city walls Their only hope to rescue the rest of their family is to find the key to the wind singer a now defunct device in the city's center which was once the course of happiness and harmony in Aramanth But the key was given to an evil spirit lord the Morah in exchange for the Morah's c. In the city of Aramanth the lives of its citizens are ruled by a color coded caste system of standardized tests How well one does on the yearly High Examination determines what you do for work where you live and even what color clothing you wear Those that test poorly find themselves consigned to the dismal one room tenements and menial labor of the Grey district while those who test well can eventually aspire to life in the mansions and illustrious careers of the White district Free thinking and creativity are unheard of but most of the city s residents are content with their way of life One family however is not The Haths Hanno and Ira have raised their three children the twins Kestrel and Bowman and baby Pinpin to believe that there are important things in life than moving up in society s ranks They teach their children the old stories that everyone else has forgotten such as the legend of the strange archaic structure that still stands in the middle of Aramanth known as the Wind Singer The tales go that once the Wing Singer made beautiful music that made everyone in Aramanth happy and kept away evil The Wind Singer s voice however was lost long ago causing the conditions in the city to deteriorate rapidly When one day Kestrel rebels tired of the endless rules regulations and tests and her entire family is put in jeopardy she finds that the only way to save them and the entire city from their horrible fate is to find the Wind Singer s voice and return it to its rightful place Armed with only an old map she and her brother Bowman and their friend Mumpo must set out on their uest which will bring them face to face with a sinister evil than any they could have imaginedI picked this up from the library because I have been in kind of a slump as far as reading goes I have a bunch of books that I m in the middle of right now that I just can t seem to slog through past a certain point I wanted something fun that I could read uickly and I figured this would be just the thing While overall I thought this was a pretty good book I did have some issues with it The main thing I didn t like about it was that it seemed even for a YA book to be very thinly fleshed out I thought that the set up for the kids big uest was very good but once things got moving I felt like the author glossed over too much After Kestrel Bowman and Mumpo get started on their journey they have various adventures of course but I felt like these were rushed through and there wasn t enough detail given about the places they go and the people they meet on their journey It s like the author was too focused on getting them from point A to point B to tell us what was happening in between This frustrated me because we re given glimpses of a uniue interesting world outside the walls of Aramanth and we re told next to nothing about it Also I felt at the end that things were tied up just a little too neatly Various problems were resolved too easily to be believable This seemed to be a problem throughout the book I didn t like how most of the time things just conveniently fell into place The characters would get into a scrape and instead of finding a way out of it themselves some miraculous solution would just fall into their laps With those negative things aside this book did have a pretty good message at the heart of it and the characters were essentially likable and easy to root for Probably the things that bothered me about this book wouldn t bother a reader in the age group it was intended for Also it did accomplish what I wanted it to It passed an afternoon

REVIEW ✓ The Wind Singer READ The Wind Singer Kestrel Hath's schoolroom rebellion against the stifling caste system of Aramanth leads to explosive conseuences for her and her family they are relegated to the city's lowest caste and are ostracized With nothing left to lose Kestrel and her twin brother Bowman do the unthinkable they leave. Oh my goodness I read this book when I was about eleven years old and I ve been searching for it every since No really You know those books you read as a kid that kind of stayed with you but you can t remember the title That was this book I searched for it in the library rooting through the orange coloured books I scoured titles for something with Wind in it That s all I could remember And then by some bizarre chance a friend asked Did you ever read the Wind on Fire trilogy Me Never heard of it What s it about She goes on to explain it and I get and excited because It s the book So she lent it to me and I reread it and now I have warm happy fluttery things in my chest and stomach It was as good as I remembered it and left me with nostalgic fuzzies to bootObviously I m a bit biased in this review When it comes to my childhood Well let s say that while I m usually not a romantic Well I am kind of I just like to pretend that I m not half as much a romantic as I actually am I tend to romanticize my childhood and almost everything that has to do with it now contains some sort of special aura around it that brings me happiness And sadness And pretty much the whole spectrum of feelings that one associates with their childhood Anyway This book was part of my childhood albeit a very small part and taking what I ve just said you can be pretty certain that this review will be kind of gushy and biased I love it The setting the word the richness of sand that I can practically feel and the characters I just get myself lost in the wonderful description and setting It s like how I viewed the world of The Floating Islands by Rachel Neumier The world had such charm and character Also both worlds would make an awesome setting for a Studio Ghibli movie The plot is exciting and though a bit juvenile and lacking in a whole lot of controversy it s easy to stay engaged in The characters are charming relatable and well simply darling They re characters that I really wanted to pick up in a big hug and sueeze and sueeze Especially Mumbo And Bowman And Pinpin And Kestrel And almost everyone I have little to complain about Obviously this is for younger readers but I still enjoyed it now as a young adult The characters weren t super deep but like I said they were sweet and likable This is one book that I will definitely be purchasing and then forcing on the kidsyounger teens of my acuaintance So good
