    Difficult to connect to the characters

    Well-written but not as good as White Teeth. Besides Kitty Alexander, the book is full of apathy. Still worth the read for the literary value.

    Flaming skies (plz review)

    Flame stared into the green forest. He was ready to snatch his prey tt scuttled through the leaves searching for any crumb of food. Flame unfolded his pure white wings that shone brilliantly in the sun. He was an owl warrior. He was Flame. He swooped down,talons outstretched,and snatched the helpless mouse in his claws. He could feel the warmth of pride flush through his feathers as he glided skillfully to the Great Oak. He knew that his catch would feed his clan well. He would feed Sunclan,his noble,brave clan. Flame landed elegantly on the ancient oak clearing that stretched before him. He tossed the limp mouse on to the food stock.

    Rising Fire (please review!!)

    Rising Fire
    by Raven

    Chapter One-

    The sky is wreathed in fluffy white clouds, and only a few patches of bright blue sky are showing—as usual. In the far-off distance, I could see dark storm clouds from which thunder was booming and lightning was crackling—as usual.
    A huge mountain towered high above the forest, which was basiclly just a few random clumps of trees spaced out at the foot of the rocky peak. A stream flowed down into the mountain valley, running ovet a tiny waterfall and trickling into a large pool. To the East lay the marshes, and to the West lay a huge pile of boulders and large, sharp rocks.
    Home sweet home.
    I stood beside the river, staring at my reflection. A huge sky blue creature, larger than a horse, stood staring back at me. The creature's blue coloring was striped with a pale sunny yellow, and it's large hear was covered in jagged horns. Long teeth poked out from it's mouth. A pair of large blue wings were folded over it's back, and a long spiked tail twisted in and out of sight.
    Like all the others that live here, on the edge of the mountain in the peaceful valley, I'm a dragon. A man-eating, fire-breathing, terrifying dragon.
    I slapped the water with my spiked tail, looking away. Dragons are just misunderstood. I wouldn't kill anybody.
    I heard a farmiliar friendly voice and looked up to see Blazer—a sleek black dragon—flying towards me.
    "You okay?" Blazer asked, alighting down beside the river, folding his black wings over his back as he did so.
    "I guess," I muttered.
    There was a silence, and I shifted uncomfortably, my long talons sliding in and out. Suddenly, the other dragon spoke,
    "It's the Storm, isn't it?" Blazer said, tipping his head. "It's getting on everybody's nerves."
    I glanced past a clump of trees towards the distant storm clouds. I could see the lightning sparking, and the shadows growing darker.
    The Storm. The coming darkness we dragons had never expected to face. Every day, the storm clouds seemed to grow closer and closer to our peaceful little valley. When they reached it... who knew what would happen.
    I slowly nodded in response to Blazer's question. I turned my eyes away from the gathering clouds to the rippling stream again. The black dragon followed my gaze.
    Suddenly, a large, monsterous roar split the air, shaking the leaves of the trees. I leapt to my feet, as did Blazer.
    "A meeting?" I wondered aloud.
    "Or something else?" Blazer said, echoing my thoughts.
    I unfurled my light blue wings and took to the skies. A large whoosh from behind me told me that Blazer was following.
    I swooped towards the huge pile of rocks and boulders that lay towards the west side of the valley. I could see other dragons gathering there, and I guessed the loud call must have been signaling a meeting.
    I landed beside a dragon named Striker. He had rusty colored scales and an unusually long neck.
    "A meeting?" I asked him.
    Striker shrugged, his long tail coiling around one of his legs.
    I stared at the largest boulder of the pile, and saw a huge dragon emerge from behind it. His long fangs protruded from his gaping mouth, and his tiny wings worked to help the bulky form reach the top of the boulder. It was Grapple—the leader of the Valley Dragons.
    Striker and Blazer looked at him, as did all the other dragons, waiting from Grapple to speak.
    In a deep voice, he growled, "I have recieved a vision."

    In response to ellis grey- in a society of mediocracey, is clerverness really a bad thing? I have read this book, and It really is brilliantly written. Smith blends many genres, and references clasics such as Ulysses and Sunset Boulevard seemlessly, creating a very round and dynamic set of characters and plot. Not only is this book extremely intellectual, it manages to be such while also being completly amusing and heart-changing, bypassing the snobishness that usually follows an intellectual read. i whole-heartedly suggest this to anyone looking for an original read.

    I liked this.

    I really liked how Ms. Smith has incorporated all these different kinds of races and characters into her books. I have also read White Teeth, and I actually like this book a bit better than the first. I suppose because it was a shorter and much easier to digest in a reading session. It was funny in some places and the first page that was cited - about how some things are Jewish and some Goyish - hilarious. I commend her writing and I hope to read more of her books in the near future.

    not necessarily not what you wouldn't expect

    this book reminds me of theavocadopapers -- for all the attention that that website has gotten recently, most of that attention doesn't focus on what reviews of smith's new book have also not focused on: for the first twenty or so pages, you're like "what the..." then things start to come together. totally original, completely subversive (and yet you're aware in some way of being subverted, and you don't mind), mind-bending (but it's not painful), and perhaps all, wholly engrossing. I'd have given it five stars, but for the fact that smith hasn't yet figured out that she doesn't need to hide behind quite so much "cleverness."
