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. I am a genderqueer Librarian who unsurprisingly likes reading...a lot But I 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) and have recently completed my MA.
