Lyhyt elämäkerta
Garth Nix was born in 1963 in Melbourne, Australia, to the sound of the Salvation Army band outside playing 'Hail the Conquering Hero Comes' or possibly 'Roll Out the Barrel'. Garth left Melbourne at an early age for Canberra (the federal capital) and stayed there till he was nineteen, when he left to drive around the UK in a beat-up Austin with a trunk full of books and a Silver-Reed typewriter.

Despite a wheel literally falling off the Austin, Garth survived to return to Australia and study at the University of Canberra. After finishing his degree in 1986 he worked in a bookshop, then as a book publicist, a publisher's sales representative, and editor. Along the way he was also a part-time soldier in the Australian Army Reserve, serving in an Assault Pioneer platoon for four years. Garth left publishing to work as a public relations and marketing consultant from 1994-1997, till he became a full-time writer in 1998. He did that for a year before becoming a part-time literary agent in 1999. In January 2002 Garth went back to writing full time again, despite his belief that full-time writing explains the strange behaviour of many authors.

Garth currently lives in a beach suburb of Sydney, with his wife Anna, a publisher.

Nothing special. I wanted this to be better than it was.

The awkward exposition and the classism both jumped out. Oh, of course it's the surly maid's fault, duh, nothing more to it. Of course Truthful is beautiful and happens to be fabulously wealthy and has a huge pack of suitors, and the one she picks is the most fabulously wealthy of them all. Also, the book calls her Truthful about 30x as much as it calls her Newt, which is really stretching the definition of a nickname.… (lisätietoja)

Not particularly well written (so much awkward exposition! is it really realistic for an 18 year old to be an expert in art history and antiques, even if she does have a (stated, not shown) desire to be an artist?) but it moves fast and ultimately it was a lot of fun. Many of Nix's favorite tropes are here (girl questing for her distant/inaccessible father, ancient evil and zombies, the overlap of the mundane world and magic, the competent-but-out-of-their-depth (para)military officer trying to be helpful and only occasionally succeeding), but recombined and remixed.

I liked where Nix left the relationship between Susan and her father emotionally. Also, the main character is quite butch and the love interest is genderqueer/transfeminine/questioning, which is always a draw for me....!

Looking forward to reading the next one(s), also I hope someone's done fan art.

DNF at 70%. Astonishingly boring after the first 100 pages.
