**The Wind Singer** by *William Nicholson* is somewher between Fantasy for kids and YA. As I'm not the target audience, my opinion can't serve as a good recommendation.

I found it a fairly ok fairytale, complete with good vs evil, strong patterns, but no strong character decelopment; with a strong internal logic that didn't make sense when looking at it in any other light than that of a fairytale. Strong siblings vs the rest of the world, humanity vs bureaucratic dystopia, all very good patterns, and a decent-enough execution, but not something that felt particularly important to me. I can't say how I would've liked it as a kid, but I probably would've read it just like I read a ton of Fantasy: entertaining in the moment, then merging into a vague memory of all the other somewhat generic Fantasy arcs.

I first read this first in elementary or middle school. I absolutely loved it, and have been trying to find it again for years. I am not a big fan of fantasy novels, but for some reason this book has kept with me since i read it 10 years ago ( )

I remember reading this book when I was in the eighth grade, maybe freshman year of high school and enjoying it for the most part. I read it again since I got it in a library sale free bag day.

That being said, this book has characters that struck me as annoying (though that is almost certainly due to my age at this point). The adults of course are grossly incompetent and the chuldren, quite young in this case, are left to go on an extremely dangerous journey alone, witnessing the deaths of 2 species (wolves and eagles) along the way, and nearly getting killed several times themselves.

The story itself has lazy writing. When the situation seemed dire, a solution magically poofs into being without any explanation what soever. As a result, the entire story was a chore to finish.

Another annoying thing about this story were the made up slang/cursings. "hubba hubba" was repeatedly used and it meant something along the lines of "yay". ( )

A brother and sister team rebel against their city's soulless and color-coded caste system, face dire consequences from the Chief Examiner, and instead escape the city walls and head out in search of the key to the Wind Singer (a strange and ancient device in the middle of the city). There are hints that finding and replacing the key will unlock the Wind Singer's song and along with it, the freedom of the citizens of Aramanth. But to get it they must travel a long way and face the Big Bad, Morah, and his creepy sort-of-undead marching-band army.
A good story with good characters (the twins' parents, who also rebel in their own ways, are excellent too), but the world-building has some bare patches and the ending was a bit pat. I may continue the series at some point, but not just now, I think. ( )
