Unfinished: Stoneheart

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

Sometimes here at Active Voice headquarters, we start a book and find it is so terrible we can’t – or at least don’t want to – finish it. What do we do? We can’t review it if we don’t finish it!

And so I’m kicking off a new category here at AV: Unfinished/Unrated. We don’t feel comfortable rating books we haven’t finished, but we still want to talk about them – and why we didn’t finish them.

StoneheartBy Charlie Fletcher [LibraryThingAmazon]

From the back cover blurb: “When, on an otherwise normal day, George breaks the head from a stone dragon outside the Natural History Museum in a tiny act of rebellion, he inadvertently awakens an ancient power. The results are instant and terrifying: a stone pterodactyl unpeels from the wall and starts chasing George. He runs for his life, but the strangest part is, no one around him can see what he’s running from. No one except Edie, who is also trapped in this strange world.

“Now that George has disturbed the fragile truce between the warring statues of London, he is forced into a race for survival, where nothing is what it seems, and it’s never clear who to trust.”
