Were the first 2 this tedious? I didn't think so. And I was SO looking forward to this. ( )

I cant give an Abarat book any less than 4 stars. You could argue that really this is a self contained chapter in the Abarat series. Once Absolute Midnight is here nothing will be the same again - except it sort of really is. For 5 stars I would really like some significant movement of the story and progression of the history of the Abarat. But really this is about the exquisite beauty of Barker's prose - the unparalleled fecundity of his imagination and the sumptuous display of insane characters and sights. ( )

This was my least favorite of the 3 Abarat books. If a 4th book ever comes out, I might not be inclined to pick it up. There was too much focus on action, yet the action scenes were confusing and not very well written; the story did not have the magic of the first two books that made it captivating. ( )
