Children of Blood and Bone - Chapters 1 - 17 Summary & Analysis
Boys of Blood and Bone, written by David Metzenthen were in my opinion a pretty good book overall. Though it took a long time to get into the book, and to be generally interested to continue to keep reading the book it was really interesting by the end of the book. At the start of the book, in my opinion was boring as there was too much detail and the event in which the character was written to introduce the readers to the book was not so much interesting but slow and boring. But, as the book continued the details of the characters became more interesting as their lives turned from a normal life, to an exciting, adventurous life. These events that structured the lives of the characters were shaping the books characteristics, evolving the book to become more appealing to the readers, allowing them to continue reading it. Though this novel was good, I would change 2 parts of the book.
While stuck in Strattford, Andy gets to know Trot and his girlfriend Janine and centenarian Cecelia Hainsworth, never-married fiancee of the long-dead Andy. This is not to infer that the novel romanticises the past, or past generations at the expense of the current generation.
