A Haunting And Tragichaunting and tragic rich with Welsh history but lacking in action All the same rich with Welsh history but lacking in action All the same thought it was a very enjoyable readOpening Sentence Right over there behind the old church The ReviewThe Truth Against the World is about two teenagers Gareth and Wyn who are sure about one thing their family histories that they have been told are filled with gaps and something big happened in them Brought together by Wyn s blog and the ghost of a lonely child Orwen and Gareth must discover the truth no matter what it takes and bring peace to the restless spirits of a six ear old girlOrwen s great grandmother is a proud Welsh lady living in the US and a sick one We watch with Wyn as her Gee Gee slowly dies an inevitable death with cancer It s impossible not to empathize with Wyn and I really liked her character She s shy but at the same time strong and proud Writing is how she expresses her emotions and reciting Welsh words in her head And then we have Gareth of London He s a typical teenager to the naked eye but we see how he feels in the chapters that are narrated by him I don t have much of an opinion when it comes to
which point of view was better because eachpoint of view was better because each of view was uniue with a vague poetic uality to it When it comes to romance in this book I guess there is a little no serious relationship or even kissing though You can see as Gareth and Wyn get closer but the love moved super slowThe pacing of this book was definitely slow but not necessarily in a bad way For me it worked the slowness in which it moved but I was a patient reader The author is trying to get across the points and clues in the mystery and in some ways it works others it s overkill After all its a kind of complicated storyline and needs a little review to really get it and I did For impatient people who love lots of action and romance I would suggest another novel But for people willing to wait to get clues to the plot and don t mind a lack of action I think ou will enjoy this It may be slow but there is beautiful descriptions of Welsh scenery and the language and it has an aura of magic around itThe imagery of the little ghost girl Orwen a different Orwen from the main character who goes by Wyn could be creepy at times It wasn t a vengeful spirit who wanted revenge or anything just a sad dead girl who needed help In one scene Gareth sees Orwen the ghost in the mirror and his phone rings When picking it up he hears her voice talking to him and let me tell ou this frightened me I don t know when it comes to scary books this for the most part is on the lower pa.
