By Cornelia Funke
Jacob was hard to get used because he didn't seem to feel anything but anger and self doubt for a while. Once he started showing more emotion the book picked up and improved a lot. The plot was very compelling and the characters were very interesting. The twisted fairy tale's helping make the mirror world more interesting and dark. This book was like a sour lemon tart that I thought was going to be my grandmother's recipe. It was hard to take at the beginning and I didn't really want to finish. It wasn't what I liked and didn't intend on liking but I decided to take a second bite and once I got into the book it was much much better. This book is a 3.7 because it was hard to get used to but ended up being captivating.
