My favorite books – The Silver Sun by Nancy Springer

03 Jul

Let me be honest, this is not a good book. As someone who has taken numerous writing classes, there are flaws– many, many flaws. But try telling that to my twelve year old self.

I loved the Silver Sun. I loved the characters. I loved the dichotomy of one being the end times king and one being the beginning times king. I had no idea leaving the mainland to go to an island with the elves was derivative.

I still love the book because it helps me remember me at the time it was the best thing I’d ever read.

    It was a good book. It doesn’t have to be technically good if the reader becomes engrossed in the story. I’m so glad you enjoyed it then and so glad you still enjoy reading. Reading is not just for enjoyment or escapism, it teaches you–science, morals, relationships, how to hope and how to dream. I’m so happy you’re so much better at these things that I’ve ever been.
