Deep in the woods, in a crooked house full of stairs, a young boy is kept prisoner by his uncle. He cannot meet other children, or have any friends. He holds the key to a secret. Meanwhile, in a quiet village, Frans the schoolteacher invents incredible stories of perilous deeds, shipwrecks, desert islands, and haunted castles to entertain his pupils, in which he is the hero. Then one stormy evening, a mysterious letter blows onto his doormat, summoning him to a meeting. Suddenly, Frans is on a real-life mission, one in which he will encounter magicians, secret passages, conspiracies, hidden treasure, a black cat with green eyes and a sealed parchment which predicts the future. He will learn the secret of the Seven Ways. He will find seven allies. And he will make a fearsome enemy. The adventure has begun ...… (more)

door Lora:

Ik geef de Zevensprong een 4/5.
Dit boek zou ik aanraden aan een vriend (of iemand anders), omdat het een mysterieus en prettig verhaal is.
Je wordt helemaal meegenomen in het verhaal en vergeet de wereld rondom je.
Ik amuseerde me wanneer ik las, wat eigenlijk niet zo vanzelfsprekend is, omdat ik niet graag lees.

Het boek is eenvoudig geschreven en leest daarom vlot.
Het was opvallend dat personages meerdere gezichten hadden en dit maakte het verhaal echt spannend en onvoorspelbaar.

De Zevensprong is in eerste persoon geschreven in tegenwoordige tijd daarom lijkt het alsof ik het meemaak en is het makkelijker om me te identificeren met het hoofdpersonage.
Ik hou van de boodschappen en de moraal die er in verwerkt zijn: mensen hebben meerdere gezichten en zijn niet altijd te vertrouwen ook al lijkt dat niet zo. ‘De vijand’ of ‘de slechterik’ is niet altijd een volledig slecht persoon, het is nodig te nuanceren.
De Zevensprong is een ingewikkeld verhaal. Toch vind ik het de moeite om het te lezen. ( )
