Witherwood Reform School by Obert Skye download in ePub, pdf, iPad
The book is a sequel and no summary of prior events is provided forcing the new reader to speculate about the immediate past. Sex Minor bathroom, fart- and butt-themed humor. Your purchase helps us remain independent and ad-free. If you have not read the previous episode, you may be confused at times by the absence of the prior context.
It feels like it is all just laying groundwork for the rest of the series, which is a tough hand to deal a reader, in my opinion. This story ends far too abruptly for me with many unanswered questions and loose ends remaining. During a parade, a teacher throws Life Savers to students.
Though the author, as narrator, humorously endeavors to deflect this obvious criticism, I found the conclusion very disappointing. The main character Tobias and the overbearing taskmaster cook are reasonably well developed. When a prank on their terrible nanny goes badly awry, their harried father plans to scare them straight by pretending to ditch them.
Common Sense is a nonprofit organization. Tobias, Charlotte and several others who have cleared their minds, secretly team up and plan an escape all the while pretending to remain stupefied. The adventure includes attacks by strange creatures, lost comrades and lots of secret passages and tunnels. Unfortunately for them, getting out of Witherwood proves a much bigger challenge than getting in. Tobias and Charlotte discover that the only way to get each other out of the mind-control spell is to cause severe pain, such as smashing your sibling's fingers or stomping on their toes.
There is a premise here, but it does not seem to ever get off the ground. As parts of the plan of escape unfold the action accelerates, success looks to be near at hand but this episode ends abruptly much like a fifties cliffhanger. Many of the chapters also have interesting preludes that are combined with subtle philosophy and humor.
