Chrystallia and the Source of Light

In this beautifully illustrated children's fantasy story two siblings struggle against sharp edged bedazzling foes to arrive at a place of knowing to which they and everything belong It's Christmas but thirteen year old Maggie and her ten year old brother Jesse are anything but joyful Their mother is dying the bank is about to foreclose on their home and very s I got a copy of this book through Librarythings s Early Reviewer program I was very excited to read it it sounded like a wonderful middle grade fantasy adventure in a fantastic Alice in Wonderland like underground fantasyland Well it wasn t What it was was very difficult to read confusing and obnoxious I stopped reading after 100 pages because it hurt my brain and because it made me sad It made me sad that some poor kid might pick this book up to read and then never read fantasy again because of this book I am very sensitive to the fact that kids picking up fantasy like this are very impressionable and think that uality stories should be targeted at that age group Enough ranton to the reviewMaggie and Jesse have a mother who is dying and are being forced to move out of their house because of her medical costs Then one night their Christmas tree grows roots in the living room and opens the way into a magical crystal world full of crazy charactersI am trying to think of something good about this book The pictures throughout were very well done and fun The book itself was a very nice package nice cover pages and font The idea behind the book is a wonderful one Reading the synopsis made me excited to partake in this magical adventureUnfortunately it was incredibly poorly executed Initially the language and conversations between the characters was a bit awkward but I was willing to overlook that as the adventure continued hoping I would get to the wonderful fantasy world I had been promised Well things just got worse When Maggie and Jesse enter the underground they apparently awaken some of the crystals down there We don t know how this happens Things aren t very well explained and that whole scenario is very hard to picture despite the wonderful pictures I was constantly re reading to figure out exactly how all this magic was working and still didn t really understand what the author was trying to portray and picture That is just the worsta fantasy world that is so poorly described that you can t even picture itStill I was willing to wait to understand the world and continued reading hoping to get to the good parts This is when things go even worse A plethora of characters enter the book they aren t well described and are hard to distinguish from each other Then all these characters start to speak Glaser has written the characters words to phonetically represent the accents they speak in So basically when the characters talk they each use a different set of misspelled words to represent their accents It was almost impossible to read I had to read parts of the book outloud just to figure out what the heck a given character was saying and even then sometimes the sentences didn t make much senseCan you imagine giving a kid a book with the majority of the words misspelled It confused the heck out of me and I can t imagine what it would do to a kid learning to read I thought maybe I was being dense and tired so I gave the book to my husband and asked him to read a couple pages His response was What in the world does that even mean Is this really a published book Here is an example Yoo will be rooled IN against undt for Rooled goot undt bad right undt wrong rooled here rooled zere up und down und everyvhere That is the guy with the German accent speaking Here is another uote from the next page But they eeth th thoft an their out thide eeth m moofing an th thee other were undereth d an there eeth no r rool for This is the guy with the lisp I believe there is also a guy with a French accent all of it is spelled goofy and impossible to read My eyes are glazing over just typing the uotes in for you yes they are really spelled like thatI double and triple checked themOverall I pretty much detested this bookit is one of the worst books I have read this year It made my eyes cross my head hurt and made me sad for any kid who has this book as their first foray into fantasy Please go read Harry Potter or Fablehaven or Percy and the Olympians or The Books of Beginningdo not even try to read this book I have no idea where all the positive review are coming from Sure it is a cool concept but it impossible to read and very poorly written The concept counts for something but not for everything

Oon everything about their lives will change In an adventure that takes them below the earth's surface to a realm inhabited by crystalline life forms some of which seem to have been spawned from the children themselves the sister and brother discover the strength of their bond the breadth of their courage and the awesome power of love Amid dazzling displays of Disclosure I received a copy of this book from LibraryThing s Early Review Program in exchange for an honest reviewChrystallia and The Source of Light by P M GlaserMaggie is a young girl who s life is falling a part Her mother is dying Her family is loosing her home As the holidays approach Maggie and her little brother Jesse find themselves in a strange new world Chrystallia and all Maggie wants to do is go home What I liked about the book I didn t like anything OK the concept was interesting but the book just didn t live up to the potentialWhat I didn t like about the book I hesitate to write this review It seems everyone liked this book except for me I really did not like this book It felt like a badly crafted mishmash of Alice and Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz The story was too hard to follow and uite frankly gave me a headache There was either too many characters to follow The flow of the story between the characters was too choppy I kept losing the plot This book is billed as a children s fantasy but many of the characters have accents that are difficult for young readers to follow A mangled mess of French Russian and South Texas accents made the story even difficult to follow And probably explains the migraine I got every time I read this book
