Ach other But then literary characters start causing trouble in their city making threats about destroying the world and for once it isn't Charley's doingThere's someone else who shares his powers It's up to Charley and a reluctant Rob to stop them before these characters tear apart the fabric of reality. This was such a wonderful read Charley Sutherland has a very special ability He can bring fictional characters to life and has been able to do so for almost his entire life forcing his family to get used to having Sherlock Holmes around for tea on a regular basis Which is all fine But the rest of the world can t know about his gift and it s a bit difficult to keep something like that hidden when fictional characters that he didn t bring out roams around Wellington Which means there s someone else who shares the same abilities as Charley only they re using it to threaten not only the city but the world The book is told from Rob s perspective and a few chapters from Millie and Lydia Lydia is Rob s gffianc e and she doesn t really know about Charlie s gift Millie s one of the fictional characters living in the city While I did enjoy reading from Rob s POV I had wanted a few chapters from Charlie as well because he s my sweet precious little bean and I was sad whenever he wasn t aroundIt s not as action packed as the last part of my summary makes it sound like The action aspect is pretty low But it doesn t mean the book wasn t brilliant Because it was brilliant The writing is really good and engaging And the characters the fictional characters that was brought into this world I loved the way they where written Without going into spoilers they are brought into the world as the reader had interpreted them while reading and not brought out as the character the author had fully intended This meant that the same character could look or behave differently depending on who read them out Like there s a handful of different Darcy s in there I would definitely recommend this book to those who love to read books about books Or people who love books in general

I don t think that the publisher of this book did a very good job of publicizing it because I had never heard of it before I saw it among my library s new acuisitions Judging by the small number of reviews not many people have heard of it and that is a shame because this book was imaginative charming and witty Charley was a precocious child but his secret gift was the ability to bring fictional characters to life He is a summoner who extracts characters like Uriah Heep from the books he is reading Charley and his older brother Rob discover that some of these characters have not returned to their books In their attempt to thwart a sinister plot Charley and Rob encounter Heathcliff Lancelot the Artful Dodger Dorian Gray Dr Frankenstein the hound of the Baskervilles aka Henry Sherlock Holmes Scrooge several variations of Mr Darcy and many others While meeting these familiar characters is enjoyable for readers it is not necessary to have read the books before reading this fantasy novel I believe that the book would entertain readers who don t already know these characters although you might miss some of the sly references to their stories Honestly I m not even sure the plot totally holds together especially at the end but I still had a good time reading it
