Smith review Gloom Town Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Anyway Rory soon finds out that his new boss is not just strange he’s not even human and he’s trying to steal the townspeople’s shadows Together Rory and his friend Isabella set out to uncover. In a town called Gloom almost everything and everyone is washed out and dark For Rory this is the only life he s known But when he gets a new job for a dangerous and secretive employer he starts to wonder if life in Gloom was supposed to be that way With the help of his best friend Izzy Rory sets out to unravel the web of secrets and darkness that engulfs GloomI don t know how to describe this book Episodic Improvised Unclear There were parts that I did enjoy and parts I thought were done well but By the end I was frustrated and underwhelmed with the story There didn t seem to be much continuity Things were only introduced when they were needed and the plot felt stitched together with only a few pieces running through the whole thing The tone was also confusing and a little bit all over the place There were elements that felt like horror but it also felt like fantasy and then sometimes magical realism and then other times like a mystery The characters were mostly flat without much depth which did fit the story it was short enough and simple enough to not necessarily need really complicated characters but that fact didn t do the story any favors either If the characters were deeper or personable it might have saved the story Rory was mostly just tense and Izzy has the potential to be sassy or street smart but she was mostly just there to provide information or uick saves Rory couldn t do for himself So all in all it just didn t satisfy the way I hoped it wouldThings to be Aware of Upsetting circumstances a lot but not too bad Rory works for creepy and dangerous people for awhile and he gets captured and threatened than once Violence intense but overall mild I have a pretty low threshold but there were some parts that really creeped me out or were really disturbing Rory is attacked a few times but usually there isn t much gore However the threat if violence and harm is graphic and frightening Death there is at least one death were the characters witness the aftermath of a murder and interact with a dead body It s mostly mild but it is a little gruesome There are other deaths mentioned or viewed and the description of one is gruesome Sexual content little to none

Smith review Gloom Town Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Exactly what Foxglove and his otherworldly accomplices are planning and devise a strategy to defeat them But can two kids defeat a group of ancient evil beings who are determined to take over the wor. There are many things which I enjoyed about Gloom Town The main characters are well fleshed out and the secondary characters like Rory s mom s friends are a colorful lot I like it when secondary characters are uirky and not just in a book for fillers Rory s strength of character makes him one which I hope the children who read this book will want to emulate He knows he and his mom are in trouble financially His mother works two jobs so Rory takes the initiative to find a job to help out However his job is less than desirable and if he d read the contract carefully he may have saved himself a lot of grief But then we wouldn t have this story eitherThough I enjoyed the story as a whole it took me a while to get through the first third of the book Yes important events occur within that section of the story but I just felt like it dragged a bit The rest of the book moved much faster and was exciting Several elements in Gloom Town are very dark Rory s friend Izzy is a witch as is her mother and I have no problem with that What I did find a bit disturbing happen during the last action seuence for lack of a better term and without giving spoilers If you have a sensitive middle grade student you might want to read this first You can decide if you think they can handle itI give the book a little over 3 stars I d give it 4 had I not as an adult been disturbed by the dark elements in the story

read ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Ç Ronald L. Smith review Gloom Town Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB When twelve year old Rory applies for a job at a spooky old mansion in his gloomy seaside town he finds the owner Lord Foxglove odd and unpleasant But he and his mom need the money so he takes the job. I m of two minds about this bookOn the one hand I like the characters and setting I want to read adventures with them I want to see what their next steps are But the narrative has a very odd flowThere are multiples turns to the story It s not that the surprises are too much out of left field But when there s three narrative turns their placement will almost necessarily be awkward The climax and long epilogue make this feel like a prologue to an already existing story rather than a stand aloneMuch of the tension also has an odd balance The protagonists are young And given the rules of the world there s a limit to what they can conceivably do But they should still have some agency over what happens in order for there to be a victory Instead the main plot resolution is practically an accident a trinket ex machina Given their cleverness and how hard they worked I felt the deserved better
