    This is the story of Kit, a half fairy princess, a highwayman, a tightrope walker, a man who s lost his memory andThe Accidental Highwayman is not a swashbuckler I listened to the digital audiobook and didn t see that description of this story until I came to its Goodread page That s a positive thing because I may have felt cheated otherwise.Though it has a large cast of characters, the pace is quite slow This is a book that can be savored but I see how it could just as easily be put This is the story of Kit, a half fairy princess, a highwayman, a tightrope walker, a man who s lost his memory andThe Accidental Highwayman is not a swashbuckler I listened to the digital audiobook and didn t see that description of this story until I came to its Goodread page That s a positive thing because I may have felt cheated otherwise.Though it has a large cast of characters, the pace is quite slow This is a book that can be savored but I see how it could just as easily be put aside.I confess, I nearly gave it up when I went nearly four chapters in a row with nothing happening other than the wagon moving onwards But, I stuck with it to the end.The style of storytelling feelslike a Victorian era book rather than a modern fairytale I believe this was a purposeful choice on the part of Ben Tripp to give it a faux classic feel.I feel like The Princess Bride could be an apt comparison if you slowed B...

    I ll keep this brief as I do not want to waste anyof my time on this book It was a total bore I did not care for either the characters or the happenings Even the humor fell flat I m very disappointed as the synopsis and the title both made this sound like it would be a very fun read It was a book that I fail to see appealing to either adults or younger young adults Rating 2 stars.Audio Note This was narrated by Steve West I was not really a fan I m not quite sure why as his accen I ll keep this brief as I do not want to waste anyof my time on this book It was a total bore I did not care for either the characters or the happenings Even the humor fell flat I m very disappointed as the synopsis and the title both made this sound like it would be a very fun read It was a book that I fail to see appealing to either adults or younger young adults Rating 2 stars.Audio Note This was narrated by Steve West I was not really a fan I m not quite sure why as his acce...

    You, like me, might scoff and roll your eyes at how this book is being compared to The Princess Bride It s understandable to be wary considering what a masterpiece The Princess Bride was, but that said, don t be This book isn t The Princess Bride but it s definitely written in the fashion of it and that s why I adored it so much This book isn t, at least to me, trying to be The Princess Bride but it instead is trying to invoke the same humor and the same fun adventurous feeling.Obviously, the You, like me, might scoff and roll your eyes at how this book is being compared to The Princess Bride It s understandable to be wary considering what a masterpiece The Princess Bride was, but that said, don t be This book isn t The Princess Bride but it s definitely written in the fashion of it and that s why I adored it so much This book isn t, at least to me, trying to be ...

    My opinion of this book wavered greatly while reading it It started off amusing, but sank almost to boredom around a third through Indeed, I let it sit for nearly a week and only cracked it open to retrieve my bookmark That point happened to be particularly engaging, though, with a few laugh out loud moments that pulled me back into the story.Indeed, that middle third is fantastic a great deal of fun, lots of good humor, and a kind of light absurdity you find in the best YA I lost myself ful My opinion of this book wavered greatly while reading it It started off amusing, but sank almost to boredom around a third through Indeed, I let it sit for nearly a week and only cracked it open to retrieve my bookmark That point happened to be particularly engaging, though, with a few laugh out loud moments that pulled me back into the story.Indeed, that middle third is fantastic a great deal of fun, lots of good humor, and a kind of light absurdity you find in the best YA I lost myself fully in the motley crew, but particularly in Morgana and Kit s friendship Their growing trust amidst their insecurities and fundamentally different natures was delightful and rewarding.Come to think of it, that first third and the last third have them mostly apart Kit on his own is alright, I suppose, but the real warmth, the real engagement for me was them together Which is a shame because Ben Tripp is a talented author with a gre...

    2.5 I m torn on this one Basically good writing, but bogged down in an annoying romance that becomesandcentral to the plot as the book goes on The author cannot write women interestingly at all, and the plot is sadlyabout bland fairy rebellions than highwaymen It operates as total wish fulfilment fantasy on the part of the unremarkable main character who nonetheless does everything important ever, thinks of every plan, saves everybody, is the only active character, and ser 2.5 I m torn on this one Basically good writing, but bogged down in an annoying romance that becomesandcentral to the plot as the book goes on The author cannot write women interestingly at all, and the plot is sadlyabout bland fairy rebellions than highwaymen It operates as total wish fulfilment fantasy on the part of the unremarkable main character who nonetheless does everything important ever, thinks of every plan, saves everybody, is the o...

    Overall, I really liked the book I liked Kit and I liked that he remained honorable and all throughout the book I don t feel that we got to know a lot of the things that made him really unique, but I did like him and think of him fondly I felt that the story could have been developed a lotin certain places, especially as regarded the details of the fairy revolution and magical realms and rules, but I enjoyed reading it and ...

    I d seen this book in a little indie book store sometime last year and I thought the cover mine is black not red was so beautiful I loved the font and the title I loved everything about it So I had to get it right away And even though it sat on my shelf for months, I never really forgot about it A few months ago I read Rise Again by Ben Tripp and I really enjoyed so I had fairly high hopes for this book I assumed the writing style was going to be the same because why wouldn t I However, I d seen this book in a little indie book store sometime last year and I thought the cover mine is black not red was so beautiful I loved the font and the title I loved everything about it So I had to get it right away And even though it sat on my shelf for months, I ne...

    This was a very underwhelming book Not sure I ll bother with a review Perfect for 13 year olds but I wouldn t recommend it to anyone older A simplistic poet and characters and oh so boringly told I loved the narration though Rating 2.5 stars.
