Croopus! Limbo Lodge.

I finally finished Joan Aiken’s “Limbo Lodge” last night.  It’s a great adventure with Dido Twite at the ‘helm’.

So many ideas again, this time about respecting cultures and ways of life. About making decisions as individuals and living in harmony with the environment.

And again, Joan Aiken does not shy away from killing off a character that we have grown to like during the narrative. This time, a character who had the potential to make changes that would have benefitted others.

I have to take a break from Joan Aiken for a while but will be back to read “The Cuckoo Tree” and “Dido and Pa” when I have located copies.

Essential reading. You owe it to yourself to give the books in the “Wolves of Willoughby Chase” sequence time if you haven’t already read them.
