    Having defeated Mister Monday, Arthur gets very little rest before Grim Tuesday shows up to bother him Arthur has another crazy adventure trying to get back into the House, finding the next part of the will, and the second key It s highly imaginative and slightly odd I enjoyed it as an adult but probably would have absolutely loved it as a child.

    Garth Nix just never lets us down, does he Grim Tuesday, the second as one might expect in the Keys to the Kingdom series, is as solid a fantasy as its predecessor, Mister Monday It was, in fact, almost better but unfortunately its primary strength was counterbalanced by a weakness, so it gets the same four as the first.That strength was this the first book had little in the way of consequences No one got seriously injured who didn t deserve it view spoiler Arthur s asthma was even par Garth Nix just never lets us down, does he Grim Tuesday, the second as one might expect in the Keys to the Kingdom series, is as solid a fantasy as its predecessor, Mister Monday It was, in fact, almost better but unfortunately its primary strength was counterbalanced by a weakness, so it gets the same four as the first.That strength was this the first book had little in the way of consequences No one got seriously injured who didn t deserve it view spoiler Arthur s asthma was even partly alleviated by his new power And even the loss of time wasn t a problem hide spoiler That changes here Grim Tuesday is an excellent example of a quest novel in which the hero must truly bleed and suffer to achieve his goals, in which plans don t go perfectly even when they work, and in which victory, once achieved, seems to have been genuinely earned.The flaw, though, is that the victory is not as hard fought as the one Things went a lotneatly in this book and the titular villain, Grim Tuesday, was not nearly as scary as Mister Monday There was, over all, less emotion involved in the book, it seemed while the starting point Arthur alone in the House, trapped in the Pit no less could have been an opportunity for great pathos and tension, it was wasted by something which did smell rather of deus ex machina A large section of the plot was just executing a plan and while there were small hitches, it basically went the way it was supposed to view spoiler And then there was that bizarre part with the Helios, which while cool was not necessary nor relevant except possibly as foreshadowing for later books hide spoiler While I read most of this book in half a day, I can t say that I flew through it because it was reallyof a glide Nix s prose and plotting moves the reader along smoothly, like they re sitting on a conveyor belt In his better paced books, it sof a roller coaster, so I was somewhat disappointed.The things that I identify as strengths of the series concept are here, though the wild creativity that a setting like the House enables is running gleefully rampant, and there s even a reference to a famous work of literature finagled in here which I appreciated very much I m not up to date enough on middle grade fiction right now to judge how it compares to the field except to say that it s without a doubt superior to the endless Warrior cat books but this book is definitely better than a lot of YA novels nowadays So take heed, YA fans if you re disappointed with your library s crop of paranormal romance, wander on into the children s section and look for this series You will not regret it

    I m really falling in love with this narrator This was a step up from book 1 because I actually understood what happened this time So in this book another Lord of the realm of this house thing Arthur fell into in book 1 is out to get him Grim Tuesday sends his minions to cause complete financial catastrophe for Arthur s family so of course he must get back to the house and somehow take down the big bad Unfortunately when Arthur stumbles into the other world he s sent to the Far Reaches wh I m really falling in love with this narrator This was a step up from book 1 because I actually understood what happened this time So in this book another Lord of the realm of this house thing Arthur fell into in book 1 is out to get him Grim Tuesday sends his minions to cause complete financial catastrophe for Arthur s family so of course he must get back to the house and somehow take down the big bad Unfortunately when Arthur stumbles into the other world he s sent to the Far Reaches which is Grim Tuesday s land and he s forced to disguise himself as another indentured servant He makes a couple friends there and knows he must free the unfairly indentured workers I really liked Arthur in this book, he has a touch of magic from being Master of the first key which was fantastic view spoiler He also has his trusty friend Suzy to help him cause some trouble hide spoiler I think being able to pay attention to this made me enjoy the story muchI could envision the Far Reaches clearly and I loved the story I wonder what will happen on Wednesday

    4 stars Mr Nix definitely maintained the level of weirdness in this one It s Tuesday and it was just yesterday that Arthur defeated mister Monday He has to return to the house and stop Grim Tuesday before he could destroy Arther s family.I loved Suzy in this one She s a bit changed than the last one.The second part of the Will is farannoying.The ending has an awesome cliffhanger as the first.Definitely recommended to continue with the series.

    After _Mister Monday_, I was hoping the author would take _Grim Tuesday_ a step further and really draw the readers into the story I wanted to knowabout the House and the Will, and see Arthur and Suzy really grow as characters Unfortunately, none of those things happened Arthur and Suzy seem exactly the same as before, the drive behind the story is exactly the same Arthur needs to get the Keys in order to save his family , and that made the story very predictable and boring Disappoint After _Mister Monday_, I was hoping the author would take _Grim Tuesday_ a step further and really draw the readers into the story I wanted to knowabout the House and the Will, and see Arthur and Suzy really grow as characters Unfortunately, none of those things happened Arthur and Suzy seem exactly the same as before, the drive behind the story is exactly the same Arthur needs to get the Keys in order to save his family , and that made the story very predictable and boring Disappointing Granted, the drive behind every story in this series will have to be similar, because Arthur is the heir apparent and must eventually inherit all the keys to the kingdom But it s the author s job to keep his readers interested, so he must give us new and exciting aspects to the House, the Will, and the characters in each book Unfortunately, he didn t do that here This also had a rushed out the door feel to it The writing was clumsy in places, with a lot of telling instead of showing It felt as if the author were laying the groundwork for further stories If so, then the best thing to do would be to keep the important pieces, cut the rest, and add it to the real story The most intriguing part was the end, where we see how Arthur will meet Wednesday Wednesday sounds like an intriguing and dangerous character, muchso than Tuesday It s too bad Tuesday couldn t have been as well

    Reading this series back to back is definitely better than the piecemeal way I was reading them when I read them as they came out briefly as that lasted There s no space between the books minutes at best between the end of Mister Monday and the beginning of Grim Tuesday So it s nice to read them in one go It s also nice to read them on the appropriate days I ll be greatly amused if I can keep that up all week I didn t remember this book as well as Mister Monday, but I m pretty sure I Reading this series back to back is definitely better than the piecemeal way I was reading them when I read them as they came out briefly as that lasted There s no space between the books minutes at best between the end of Mister Monday and the beginning of Grim Tuesday So it s nice to read them in one go It s also nice to read them on the appropriate days I ll be greatly amused if I can keep that up all week I didn t remember this book as well as Mister Monday, but I m pretty sure I did read it The same applies to this book re the pace, the fun ness, the lack of true emotional connection It might behelpful to think of this series as one long book split up into seven so far that s true, anyway, but we ll see.I m interested by the reversal of the magical healing of Arthur often, if characters have some kind of disability, it s handwaved away People think that it only makes sense, things are easier plot wise that way But with Arthur, Garth Nix went out of his way to reverse that.I loved the inclusion of the Mariner, and the slight reference to his background, which doesn t wave it around shouting, Look Clever literary reference Look at meeee I love that he s related to the Piper, and whose son he is I hope he comes into itlater, and I hopeis revealed about what his parents are were like

    This series is really cute and especially designed for boys under the teen level It just has so many creative elements and events that would appeal to the younger set That being said, I loved it as it s rather different from what I usually read and great for listening in the car.Arthur Penhaligan, a normal person in the 7th grade, was somehow selected to become the rightful heir to the Keys to the Kingdom a universe adjacent to Earth that can be accessed through a monstrous house that only Ar This series is really cute and especially designed for boys under the teen level It just has so many creative elements and events that would appeal to the younger set That being said, I loved it as it s rather different from what I usually read and great for listening in the car.Arthur Penhaligan, a normal person in the 7th grade, was somehow selected to become the rightful heir to the Keys to the Kingdom a universe adjacent to Earth that can be accessed through a monstrous house that only Arthur can see And this is book two of his adventures outsmarting the Morrow days Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc , each one has control on the day of his name For example on Monday, Arthur had to deal with and defeat Mister Monday On Tuesday it is Grim Tuesday and on Wednesday it will be Lady Wednesday This is a cleverly written tongue in cheek kind of story that actually teaches morality to some degree Arthur is set by The Will to correct the wrongs done by the Morrow days The Morrow days aren t really evil but they have been corrupted by greed and the powers they have acquired Grim Tuesday is a treasure hoarder and has become a slaver in the hopes of gainingtreasures Arthur is appalled and vows to set the slaves free once he becomes keeper of the second key Arthur and his ally Suzy Turquoise Blue spend their time in the house trying to get to the treasure tower and find the snippet of The Will that will bestow ownership of the Key to Arthur You must keep in mind that Arthur doesn t want to be keeper of the keys to the kingdom, he just wants to return to his normal life but the House and it s denizens just won t allow that since he is already Lord Monday and the responsibility of the Lower House falls squarely on his shoulders The other Morrow days sense disaster in the making and want to wrest control from Arthur s rather human hands I find this really entertaining and it s fun to read about Arthur and Suzy s adventures and the defeat of the arrogant Morrow days
