A new student review of The Garden of Darkness by Gillian Murray Kendall

jotaf posted a new student review of The Garden of Darkness by Gillian Murray Kendall. See the full review.

I think The Garden of Darkness was a good book full of suspense and mystery.  The author, Gillian Murray Kendall, wrote a reasonably believable story about a post-apocalyptic world. One of the things I liked about it was that the characters felt like they could easily be real.  An instance that I liked from the book was when Clare found Jem, Mirri, and Sarai.  Together they scavenged a bunch of cool items from the city and discovered some useful information along the way.  One thing I didn't like, though, was that it was pretty confusing at the beginning and ending, which at times made it really tough to understand.  It is also slightly creepy with mention of cults and a serial killer.  I would recommend this book to ages thirteen through seventeen because of the content's maturity level.
