SUMMARY Finnian's Fiddle î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Dragons can often be obstinate and when one dragon arrives at a rural seaport demanding to hear a child prodigy perform the violin the townspeople must strategize They send a boy named F. Originally reviewed on LauraofLurkingI was given a free copy of the book by the author in return for an unbiased reviewStrong language NoneDrugs NoneViolence NoneSexual content NoneThis book was written in several parts each of which has its own feel and flow so I will review it as such with an overall review at the endThe Overture 55This short unusual beginning I found most charming I was through the eyes of a dragon abut his life or rather his life during his sleep and how he relives his memories This is how he comes to terrorise a town and send a boy or an occasionally harrowing adventurePrologue The Monster 455This section held a lovely whimsical tone It reminded me of the original 1911 version of Peter and Wendy the novel that started the Peter Pan universe It was simultaneous holding that magical shimmering barrier over everyday life that the best children s books do but also had access and didn t talk down to adultsIn this section the dragon arrives demanding the fiddler who played for him in this village once before no other fiddler will do Yet nobody knows who this fiddler is and soon have to broker a deal or all become char grilled snacks They are to send one boy off from this village in the middle of the middle of nowhere to the city to learn the violin and hopefully convince the dragon he is the same boy he once sawFinnian did not strike me in any way as a normal boy probably the only way he would ever survive even the first day of this book He likes to daydream he sees fairies at one point but hey we have a dragon who knows if these are real or not and seems generally disconnected from other children his age His personality here came across a bit erratic at one point manic but by and large just very laid back what will be will beDuring this section there are adults arguing endlessly and while Finnian has the troubles as well as excitement of what he must undertake what I really liked was he was a family boy who looked after his little sister firstPart I The Road 355Hmm we have an entire section devoted to the road I m sure this will be a smooth journey to the cityIt was clear from the outset that Finnian really had no idea how to travel especially when it came to nights I also suspect is teacher who had supposedly taught the class geography mainly to do with getting to the city had either spent very little time showing him what to do or likely never been herself and was just using what she d readHis trials went from bad to worse yet at this point despite his danger and potential death many times I felt a disconnect from the character He didn t seem to worry that he had run out of food even if he didn t know how little a way he had come He went through trial that would make many panic but he took it in his stride even when he was taken up by a company and on the main road he never asked if he was heading towards or away from the city that was the only chance to save everybody he had ever metThere was a lot of back and forth here I wasn t a fan of a lot of it I was glad however when he did at least seem to remember why he was travelling even if it still felt like he relied on others to do everything for him without him askingPart II The City 45I felt this part largely went back to its whimsical roots from the prologue Finnian is once again on his own for a bit completely clueless and causing havoc He seems to remember why he was on this uest in the first place at last about time but does little about it at first and doesn t really seem to careHe soon finds himself in a strange predicament at first I thought it would be an awkward relationship but it rather reminded me of the relationship in The Magician s nephew with the old man At this point I swung back and forth on my opinions of where the story was headed I could see no feasible way out of what Finnian had gotten himself into without losing what little chance he had to save his villageI love Finnian s nemesis in this part he had just the right level of cockiness without seeming to ridicule himself In a way I was happy to see this section end especially when I saw the most curious way it would do so as I was staring to tire of the structured atmosphere that was beginning to take the uintessential essence of daydreaming anything is possible Finnian and put it in a box to forget under the stairsI think up to this point this was the part that left me with the most anticipation for the next onePart III The Forest 45Ok I take that last part back this was my favourite part Once again we went back to confusion uncertainty and weirdness that felt like the best parts of the previous sections had been plucked out and mashed together hereGiven the title of the section the fact that he travel should not come as a surprise to you if it does you sure will find a lot of them in this book Or any book for that matterOnce again he found himself in a caravan and different people a slightly different feel but overall a sense of d j vu and in a morning than a creepy way The reappearance of someone did catch my attentionThis part in itself soon turns inside out and I found myself in the most bizarre of destinations to date that s saying something considering what I went through to get there At first this was frustrating with far too few answers coming forward as to what was going on Finnian had once again remembered his violin for a few seconds but seemed to forget it pretty uickly as an active thing to do himself then again his attempts had been painful at times even if the book didn t have volumeWhen the veil of uestions was revealed I was very happy to be where I was one of my favourite destinations in general in novels The scenery and variety was rich but I felt Finnian was melting into it whereas this was so different from his home that he should be gaping and shocked pretty much all of the time I will allow some of this to his daydreamer nature filtering back in and letting him absorb what he had probably imagined most of his life but I would have liked to have seen him study the world a bit The banuet scene however fantastic possible the best thing I came across by a mileToo soon for my liking however just as he began to take an interest as well as try to get some attention about this piece of wood he carries around in a case I m beginning to struggle to call it a violin as one would get played even if cat screechingly badly occasionallyPart IV The Mountain 55This section was plain strange but also interesting in a rather dark way Clearly the big ending all cards were laid on the table all the obstacles the author had left were thrown on the path ahead The imagery used was fantasticA bad dream Death Hell The devil A certain character s interference who keeps showing up throughout the book All of these crossed my mind I felt it was a suitable climax but I cannot say much about what happened without giving too much awayFor a young boy I felt at times he acted too old for his age even countering in the fact that he had travelled alone for the best part of a year and faced challenges at every turnEpilogue The music 55And the end is here I thought it was very fitting considering everything that had happened and how Finnian had dealt with it though the yearBut what is fitting for a boy who intermittently forgets he has a fiddle finds himself in various situations with no escape and travels through many worlds Is it to have returned home and found the dragon gone Is it to have the village turned into a barbecued snack Is it for him to have learnt to play and appease the dragon Is it for him to stay inland after seeing smoke rising from where his town once was Or is it for the daydreamer to be brought out of his daydream with a call to eat teaThe answer well you ll find that out when you go and buy the bookMy OverviewThose were my reviews written as I read each part treating each part essentially as a standalone leaving what passed before elsewhere The book was charming intriguing had many changes as it went and overall kept you on your toes However it had one failing Had you given me any of those parts as a stand alone novella I would have easily given them a 4 probably higher But when you put them together there is a problem in that the theme speed and style changes part to part not to mentions Finnian himself that I was repeatedly jarred around and never felt like I had sure footing Sometimes this is good in a book but for this example I tired of the rather sudden changes that were not remarked uponAs a result of these issues I struggled to give it an overall rating because I didn t know whether the individual sections were important that what followed each one In the end I decided on 4 stars I considered 35 stars but then thought of how each section made me smile and realised I had answered my own uestion as to what was importantI wish the transitions had been a bit smoother so I could have rated higher I hope in the author s future works this is the case Les roses de septembre unbiased reviewStrong language NoneDrugs NoneViolence NoneSexual content NoneThis book was written in several parts each of
