Summary Terrier AUTHOR Tamora Pierce

To profit from the Lower City's criminal enterprises and the result is a crime wave the likes of which the Provost's Guard has never seen befor I wish this had been written as a third person novel rather than as a journal I have many logistical and stylistic issues with journals as a medium I suppose I m willing to accept that Beka is coming back after a night of grueling exercise and writing thousands of words about her day but I m less willing to accept the grating writing style Beka s voice is stilted and matter of fact which made it read like low grade YA fantasy from a debut writer instead of a novel written by an accomplished and interesting writer whom I otherwise very much enjoy It also involves 450% too much made up cant where everyone is a mot or a cove and they might have peaches shudder and the running metaphors around the Dogs particularly the growl border on too much And it s hard to get a sense of Beka when she s writing about herself Her key character trait is shyness and she tends to underestimate herself so as a reader it s less clear why people like Aniki Kora and especially Rosto take to her so uickly when Beka is spending most of her time downplaying her own attractions All of that is to say this would have been soooo much better as a novel DITCH THE JOURNAL AS A DEVICE ASPIRING WRITERSI did like many aspects of the book but due to the writing it never really sang to me The plot was fine if you ve ever read an Agatha Christie novel you know the murderer is view spoilerthe otherwise demure old lady who s taken a turn to evil hide spoiler

Ougher as Beka's limited ability to communicate with the dead clues her in to an underworld conspiracy Someone close to Beka is using dark magic Review and athttpsedwardsghostenginewordpressI still can t believe I have to rate this one star A Tamora Pierce book too But I found this book so slow with a lot of unnecessary details and not enough necessary details I mean a lot of this was just ramble about the MC s everyday life and like who came to visit her and what they talked about etcSo basically the whole of this book is about the everyday life and line of duty of Puppy Beka Cooper and don t get me wrong I actually liked her as she was very well developed and strong yet flawed I must say that s one of the things I really like about Tamora Pierce s heroines as they all are strong and believe in good but they re not overly perfect that they stop feeling like real people But so far that s where the good ends in this series as I couldn t really connect with the other characters and found the whole plot tediously slow and boringThis book was supposed to be about the mystery of who was stealing the missing children and killing them and that sounds real exciting doesn t it Only it wasn t at all somehow the author managed to dull down what could have been an interesting mystery and don t get me wrong I love a good mystery and instead focus on mundane things in Beka s everyday life such as who come to visit her what time and what they spoke about I mean honestly who cares And not only that but I felt this book on a whole was rather light for a book that was about dealing with criminals I m not saying this because I prefer darker books but because it really would have added excitement and atmosphere to the whole book and world if things had been gruesome cause come on she is patrolling the rougher parts of the cityAnother thing I will mention is despite this book s size and length there s zero world building I don t know why this was the case as there were plenty of opportunities to put in some world history but still we practically got none So on the whole I would say this book would need action and just a exciting faster pacing where you don t know what s around the corner and you re always in suspenseThis just had so much potential to be thrilling and dark with plenty of twists and turns heck even when we do find out who is killing all the children it isn t that much of a shock just like eh okay then I had high hopes for this but was let down mostly by the slow pace and lack of suspense in the plot and writing Despite all these negativities I still would like to find out what becomes of Beka AND others have said these books get better I just don t understand why so many on GR have rated this one so highly though

    Tamora Pierce's Beka Cooper series Book One Terrier I'm beginning to finally recognize patterns in Tamora Pierce's heroines When I was a kid I identified with her books so strongly I couldn't possibly step back as a writer to see her tricks Now with the benefit of age and distance I read this book with new eyes Her main characters always have some kind of fatal flaw in Beka's case it's fear of public speaking and chronic shyness for Alana

    I love stories about the Tortall Realm I really really do Cross my heart Hope to die Stick a needle in my eye You know I never knew the reason why kids on our country say these things when they want to convince people they're telling the truthThis sounds painfulMaybe that explains the phrase the truth hurts But anyway por favor This book almost bored me to death The only reason why I finished this one was because I have a high respect for

    I wish this had been written as a third person novel rather than as a journal I have many logistical and stylistic issues with journals as a medium I suppose I'm willing to accept that Beka is coming back after a night of grueling exercise and writing thousands of words about her day but I'm less willing to accept the grating writin

    What is one word I can use to sum up the book hmm probably AWESOME Seriously there isn't a lot of books that can do that at least for me Beka Cooper is the most kick butt cool heroine I've encountered in all my reading daysThe book was just as good the second time around At first I was wary of reading it again thinking it might no
