In my opinion, Mister Monday wasn't very good at the start. It was very exciting in the end, but every good book really needs to have a satisfying start, or else readers will drop the book. I decided to give it a chance, and didn't drop the book. This book is about Arthur Penhaligon, a 12-year-old boy. At the start of the book, he is dying of asthma. You can say that's an interesting start, but it wasn't for me. When he sees two dog-faced people while he is "dying", that still didn't interest me. Even when they handed him a long minute hand, like one from a clock. Not even when he wakes up and still has the key, which helps him to breathe. To me, it sounded like a mystery book. It got more interesting. Don't worry. There's more coming. Where Arthur lives (Earth), is a Secondary Realm. There is this place, the House, created by the Architect. The House is divided into seven parts:The Lower House, The Far Reaches, The Border Sea, The Great Maze, The Middle House, The Upper House, and The Incomparable Gardens. When the Architect made the house, she also made the Will. The Will was also separated into seven parts, and the Will chose Arthur to be the Heir of the Kingdom. Now, that's interesting. Each of those seven parts were wrongly ruled by the Morrow Days. In this book, Arthur uses the minute hand he had to fight with Mister Monday. Mister Monday fights with the hour hand, which is slower, but stronger. Arthur's is faster, but nowhere near as strong. Who will win? This book was an exciting, thrilling, and fast read!
