Sprout – Dale Peck Review

An excellent book that I finally decided I wasn’t going to be able to obtain via my library or by trading, so I forked over for it. Worth every penny I have to say and very much re-readable…which is always a good thing if you’ve gone and purchased a book.

This book managed to embody several of my favourite reading ‘things’.

  • Language geekery
  • GLBT themes
  • Young Adult novel
  • Re-readable

The language geekery element was amazing! A chap who totes around a dictionary and then actually utilises the words he learns… be still my little beating geek heart…. Mmm language.

I actually quite liked, though initially it frustrated me no end that the novel didn’t have a specific ending… it was neither good nor bad and left a lot of manoeuvrability for further novels should the author choose to. However, I did not especially appreciate the pseudo-crap about going back and re-reading it a plethora of times so you could understand… I’m not sure that it would work; I believe I would still have many unanswered questions in regards to the ending.

That being said, I loved the book, very hard to put down and a most excellent purchasing choice.


About Nerdsbian

I am a nerd for ALL seasons. Ravenclaw...natch. I am a genderqueer Librarian who unsurprisingly likes reading...a lot. But I also love being outside too...sometimes even reading at the same time. Also animals, any and all of them. Never yet met one that didn't get on with me and vice versa. I do a couple of different voluntary jobs (animal charity related), I am a Brownie Leader and have recently completed my MA.
