    One thought on “Changeling”

    1. While I never really warmed up to Neef, the protagonist, I thought her changeling counterpart totally, utterly rocked I loved Changeling from the start, and she made perfect sense to me as what a fairy changeling raised in our world might be like, too.Also, the time spent in the Metropolitan Museum of Art was worth the price of admission so to speak by itself.

    2. This book was really good, so the parts of it which were frustrating were really frustrating than they would have been in a mediocre book, sadly Fantastic world building and a smart, self aware protagonist yay But that protagonist couldn t manage a believable interaction with any of the other people in the book boo Neef had pretty much no empathy for anyone, no sense that she should be concerned in anything but a mechanical how does this affect me way with other people s feelings There could ha [...]

    3. Changeling is funny and fresh and fine, another in the short list of fabulous books set in New York City published in the past year It is takes place in New York Between, and Sherman balances the Between of Faerie with a terrific young heroine named Neef, ringing changes on every single New York and Faerie trope you can imagine, and a few you can t.

    4. Altamente entretenido, me mantuvo enganchada a la historia de principio a fin, lo que m s me gust fue la cantidad de mitolog a que manejaron Lo nico que no me gust fue el final, que me dej con ganas de m s.

    5. I absoulutley loved this book It was fantasy so there were mermaids,demons and the main character boy was she a handful so if your done with your book pick this one up i garuntee you will love it.

    6. A well handled quest I m glad to hear it went so smoothly A lot of people get sick or even die on quests It was comforting to know she had a fairy godmother looking out for her.

    7. smiles all around this book was amazingly fun kind of exactly what children s literature should be plenty of amazing characters, lots of mythological beasties, and loads of funny dialogue kinda perfect that the important characters were girls, and not all about their appearance and where are the cute boys just a joy to read

    8. Changeling tells the story of Neef, a little girl who lives in New York Between Neef, born a mortal, is a girl different from everyone else Neef is curious, bold, but most of all, she is stubborn Neef eventually was punished by the Green Lady and exiled from New York Between On her journey, she is accompanied by her overly, sensitive, mortal friend Changeling Neef and Changeling are on a journey to recover three things in order to get Neef accepted back into New York Between or the Hunt will con [...]

    9. I am, personally, not very fond of urban fantasy as such, especially in this particular kind of setting The stories of an Other City in this case, New York , created in the likeness of the human one and populated by fairy versions of the actual inhabitants here artistic types in the Village, vampiric fairy entertainers in Broadway and gold hungry dragons, the magical Bear Bull and a woman named DowJones in the Wall Street, to name only a few very, very rarely seem convincing to me, because they [...]

    11. Charming That s the first and most obvious thing I can say about this book If you love Folklore at all, you probably won t be able to resist this book s overall charm, despite the fact that it takes a bit I found personally to get into I loved the modern New York fairy tale alternate universe the author creates It s a world I d love to spend time in, so I d probably follow this series just for that alone It s enchanting and does make one really want to visit the real New York just to see if it [...]

    12. I will say that this book started off a bit slow and confusing for me, but I always find that with a new fantasy book I just had to get used to the new world It did help that it kind of took place in New York City, which I am familiar with, so I think that made it easier to grasp the new world And once I had a handle, boy was the ride fun Neef and Changeling are such fun characters and meeting all the fairy tale folk throughout the book was fabulous Mostly I am excited about this book as a teach [...]

    15. Fairy tales are than true not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten Neil Gaiman This is probably the best quote from a completely different author that I could put with this book One, because Changeling is a story about a girl raised by fairies Two, because there is also a dragon in this story Neef is a changeling She was taken as a young child and a fairy that looked exactly like her was put in her place She was then taken to Central Park [...]

    18. Highly recommended for New York City parents looking for a good book to read aloud to their young children as bedtime stories.For everyone else wellHaving read some of Delia Sherman s other books, I wasn t expecting this to be quite so juvenile It is definitely a kids book aimed at 8 10 years old, I d say, though younger kids would definitely enjoy it as well However, a lot of the cleverness is probably going to zip right past a lot of kids, who might not have the background to get all the refer [...]

    19. Changeling is both a well researched look at the folk beliefs of the world as well as a love letter to New York City And while both elements come together nicely to create an exciting story, readers unfamiliar with New York s neighborhoods and museums may not fully understand or appreciate the nuanced levels of Sherman s New York Between, the land where the folk dwell The main character Neef is a human living among the folk in Central Park When she breaks a taboo, the Park s ruler, the Green Lad [...]

    21. I liked this but I m not comfortable with the idea of Autistic children or by the author s note, those with Asperger s as changelings because that s saying they re not human It redeemed that a bit I think by not treating the changeling character as lesser, and while we never saw her perspective she was developed as a character and crucial to her counterpart s success But although, or perhaps because I m likely Autistic myself, with different symptoms, I justI dunno I am far too hesitant to give [...]

    22. Having loved Sherman s story CATNYP in Datlow and Windling s The Faery Reel, I was very pleased to find out that she was writing a book about the heroine, Neef, a human changeling who lives with the fairy folk in New York Between Neef s curiosity leads her to break a faerie law and sends her on a quest for three magical items, which she must find if she s to continue her life in New York Between Any faerie world which includes not only the standard traditional fairies, from brownies to pookas, b [...]
