    One thought on “Bridle the Wind”

    1. In the chaotic years that are the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars young Felix Brooke is journeying from England to his home in Galicia in Spain when he is shipwrecked off the Basque coast of France, thus precipitating the strange sequence of events in this novel He convalesces at the fictional Abbey of St Just de Seignanx, on the French coast near Bayonne very much like Mont St Michel in France or St Michael s Mount in Cornwall but finds that due to a form of amnesia partly brought on by a supe [...]

    2. This book is fantastic but it takes a little time before the magic has fully kicked in I read this book out of order, so I can t comment on how it fits in the series it s even impressive how much I enjoyed it.Cons The beginning often feels cliched and heavy handed, and you don t really know what kind of story it s going to be for a while Characters seem super one dimension All these problems are resolved quickly YES Pros Fascinating portrayal of Basque landia, great scenes that genuinely spooke [...]

    3. Aiken is such an unusual author, mixing realism with supernatural in a way that is never silly, though it may as in some of her Dido books be difficult to disentangle rather like Juan s poetry, which Felix struggles to understand like a story I read this book not knowing it was part of a series, but I felt it stood well on its own It was a little slow and confusing at the start, but by the end of the first chapter, the characters had taken on life and drew me in to their story Although I was exp [...]

    4. What a charming, exciting, imaginative book I read book 1 in this series last year and enjoyed it very much, but this one is possibly better Joan Aiken blends history and the supernatural in this tale of a boy s travels through Spain and France with a mysterious companion during the 1820 s The companions brave lightning storms, hunger, high mountains, poisonous snakes, and an assortment of frightening enemies yet overcome through wit, courage, and the help of Providence.

    5. Even faster paced than the first novel in the trilogy, Saddle the Sea, and just as well written I liked this one even Even fewer slow parts Same type of story high adventure and action and good, decent morals Looking forward to the final novel in the series, Teeth of the Gale Again, ages 8 and above.

    6. Liked the first book only slightly better than this one another great adventure and so many endearing characters Can t wait for book three, and can t believe this series doesn t get publicity The entire Salt Lake County Library system only has one copy of each book and I don t get it Again maybe the difficulty, I don t know.

    7. Felix Brooke 2 If you re a militant atheist, you might be annoyed at the religious stuff a fair bit than in Go Saddle the Sea but, other than that, if you liked Saddle , you ll like this Felix decides to go back to his Spanish family and has adventures in Basque country in the course of getting there.

    8. I read this series out of order this is the second one, and, I think, my favorite Great adventure, fabulous plot twists, and an ending that completely took me by surprise and made me want to read it again on the spot.

    9. Another eventful road movie novel, with some suspenseful moments and a blindingly obvious final twist But Aiken s writing style is always interesting.

    10. Different to the first in the series this one is focussed on the supernatural Interesting interactions between the protaganist and his fellow traveller.

    11. I liked this one better than the first oneybe I d give it 3.5 There was a twist at the end that I didn t figure out, which is always fun.
