Garth Nix is a really cool writer who writes a lot about magic and the like, sort of like JKR but more complex. I can't believe that no one here hasn't heard of him, or read one of his books!!! Mister Monday, Sabriel....Come on. Anyone? at all?

I read the Abhorsen triology (Sabriel, Lireal, Abhorsen) and I loved them. I woulnd't be suprised if I read them again. I like how the magic is more more complicated than most books about magic. The bells were a really cool idea too and the whole system of using them was just so well developed.

Just like Alice, I read the Abhorsen books, too. I loved the library in Lirael. That was my favorite of Garth Nix's books, simple because I enjoyed that part the best.
I own Mister Monday but have yet to read it.

I just finished reading the Abhorsen trilogy. I thought it was really good. I loved how there was so much conflict and you never knew what was going to happen next. There was so much background to about the Great Charter. My favorite book of the three was Lirael. I also really liked the Disreputable Dog.

Heh see I knew I was right/ My favourite was Lirael, I actually own the Abhorsen Trilogy but for some reason can't find the second 2 *growl* oh well...he really has the entire storyline developed with all the kinks worked out, and the best part is that I don't think it's cliche at all. I really love his style ^.^

Yeah, it really isn't cliche, I hadn't really thought about it, but I hate books that are so cliche they're predictable. Good point.

Sabriel was a Ravenclaw book of the month last year, which is how I got into the series. Great books! I'm very excited that Across the Wall is finally out in paperback.
