A new student review of The Eye of Midnight by Andrew Brumbach
cowboys1 posted a new student review of The Eye of Midnight by Andrew Brumbach. See the full review.
I enjoyed this story quite a bit. It caught my attention from the very beginning. The characters were well developed and interesting. Though the children were caught up in a very dangerous situation that required them to be creative and brave, the situations never seemed completely unrealistic, which made it a perfect adventure!
I did have a small problem with a lot of the vocabulary in the story. There were arabic terms and terms from the early 20th Century that were unfamiliar. There is a glossery in the back of the book, but unfortunately I did not realize this until I was through about a third of the story.
