    When I first started reading this book, I had some problems with the mystical, dreamy, roundabout way it was written As I got deeper into the story, I had some problems with the foundational premise of the plot By the end of the book, I really liked it though This book tells the story of Rob, a boy whose sister is in a coma due to an accident Rob s family, of course, has difficulty dealing with this situation From there, the story intertwines bits of Welsh mythology and pieces of modern psychology as well as a bit of adventure and intrigue to make an interesting story with the deep theme of personal responsibility I especially enjoyed the book s emphasis on the importance and power of words which I agree with and the tie in s with Welsh mythology which I have found in a lot of the books that I have read recently.

    Okay For than half of this book, I couldn t stand it I was like okay let me read this quick and get it over with because I cannot wait for it to be done It was boring, it was too descriptive with all the trees and the plants and I was just plain bored But then, all of a sudden, towards the last half of the book, it picked up like you have no idea And my eyes were glued to the pages I then wanted to read it fast because I was dying to know what happened I didn t put it down until the end I am very happy I stuck with this book It was super hard to get into, but it was SO worth it and it had a wonderful meaning to it It was just beautiful Not to mention, Catherine Fisher s depiction of the Unworld was truly amazing If you are into mythology and fantasy books, please give this one a chance.

    When I first looked at the back cover of this edition, I sort of sneered at the review from the Sunday Times London Catherine Fisher is a writer of rare talent Talk about a bland one liner that says nothing Yet here I am trying to write a review about a book that is was so absorbing, and yet so hazy and hard to describe One thing I can say with certainty is how much I love the way Fisher excels at meshing the world around us with the world of imagination and myth Truly, she is a magician of words If you like Patricia McKillip, you would probably enjoy Catherine Fisher.

    Most mentally internal adventures are disappointing, but this tale had internal coherence.

    Not, after all, my favorite book by Catherine Fisher, but there is much to admire here as there is in all her books 17 year old Rob lives in Avebury, a place often swarming with archaeologists and new age hippie types He encounters both one fateful August The archaeologist, Clare, has uncovered a wooden henge which consists of a single tree buried upside down The druid, Vetch, seems to think the henge is connected to Rob s little sister, Chole, who is lying in the hospital in a coma He also seems to think that he can cure her Could he possibly be right Rob is desperate enough to try to find out.There were several things I loved in this book It s psychologically honest and spiritually open As Rob and Chloe explore the henge, they are also exploring those emotions, and their relationship I loved both Vetch and Mac, the Catholic priest who is a family friend and Rob s godfather But this is an awfully creepy book And I m not entirely sure I got Clare Ceridwen It was still worth reading and rereading, and, if you like fantasies about real people with real emotions, you may well enjoy it.

    3.5 stars Good, but lacking something, I m not sure what, that would make it as good as I thought it would be after reading the first few chapters The characters are definitely lacking they don t feel either real or sympathetic to me but so is something at the heart of the book It s heavily based on Welsh mythology, which is very much my bag, and has some very fine moments, but somehow they just don t add up to a really good book.

    Moved a little slow and was a bit predictable However, the imaginary world of the Unworld was interesting and reminded me a little of the movie Inception how you moved through different caers Definitely thought provoking about what people in comas might be experiencing.
