Gable Reviews The Secret of the Indian

The Secret of the Indian by Lynne Reid Banks

Describe it in 25 words or less: The story of the Indian In The Cupboard continues but this one is more focused on Boone.

Any particular reason for choosing this book? I had read the two other books in the series and I liked them. But, this one was my least favorite out of all of them.

Genre: Children’s, Action, Comedy

Who was your favourite character and why? Emma because she is honest and kind.

Who was your least favourite character and why? Tasmin because she’s a big fat stinky jerk!

 Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? And was it worth the wait? It took quite a while but at the end it was so bittersweet and my jaw began to hurt from smiling (I’m not kidding!). So, yeah, worth the wait.

Was it plot or character driven? Probably more plot driven.

What did you think of the ending? Wonderful and fantastic! Beautifully written. Wish I could write like that!

Favorite quote: “When the brain is pushed to its limits, something always emerges. Even if it’s the worst possible thing, in this case the truth.”

What would you change? I wouldn’t put the freak disaster in there. It was sort of unnecessary.

Have you read other books in the series? Yes and I loved them! But this one wasn’t as equally good. I plan to read the rest of the series this year.

Who would you recommend it to? People who liked the rest of the series or are interested in books about tiny people.

Number of unknown words: 17

How far would you go to keep a secret?
