One thought on “Alistair Grim’s Odditorium, by Gregory Funaro

  1. This was certainly a very odd book. It was a good odd, though. I’ve never quite read anything like it before. It jumped a bit in the beginning so it wasn’t the best on character development and setting. However, the plot was very clear and easy to follow. I would recommend this to fantasy lovers who do not mind reading very bizarre material. Younger children might struggle with understanding it.
