Pastime Pleasures #1 – Sabriel by Garth Nix

Posted February 21, 2014 by Charlotte in Pastime Pleasures / 1 Comment


Welcome to my new feature, Pastime Pleasures, posted every other Friday, today’s is the turn of Sabriel by Garth Nix.

Here I will look at books that have given me great pleasure in the past. These are books I can read over and over again. The only rule is that the book must have been published five or more years ago.

Pastime Pleasures #1 Sabriel

Sabriel is a fantasy book which reads like reality, it is a world that is not much different from our own. OK so there are some large difference… There is magic… The dead that refuse to stay dead… And a TALKING CAT!! (Wish my cats would talk).

Yet when reading Sabriel the Old Kingdom feels familiar and is a comfortable place to be in. Like Sabriel the reader has to deal with good vs. evil; with coming of age; and with the difficulty of making hard decisions. This is a book you must read.

Sabriel is a great introduction into a world that seems so different from our own, yet so familiar. It is a great start to a series that can grow and expand for  generations to come.

And so to quote Garth Nix – “Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?”
