DISCLAIMER There is an actual risk that one of the patient s charts in my local ER will say by tomorrow 28yo female presents with symptoms of Nyuil poisoning incoherently rambling about underground cities and glass faces Poison control contacted Yes this review is written in that febrile Nyuil fueled fog of hazy clarity where the world becomes muted at its edges and yet everything comes into a strangely sharp focus and brain mouth dissociation may reach dangerous levelsI wrote a final paper back in college with high fever and in the similar Nyuil daze shaken by raspy cough breathless with congestion I got an A plus on that paper I could not recall writing a single word of it Go figure And so Nyuil says This book is like a breath of fresh air the gulp of fresh water from a mountain stream a birdsong in the sunshine damn birds stop chirping there are sick and grumpy people over hereIt made me wish my future hypothetical daughter were real and present so that we could bond over reading this book loving its every page An important lesson If you ever EVER decide to follow the white rabbit Oh Neverfell you should have paid attention to Carroll s Alice and that Neo guy of the Matrix fame just know that your life will be altered forever Especially if the frantic rabbit chase leads you out of admittedly confining security of childhood into the labyrinthine underground city of Caverna where lies were an art and everybody was an artist even young children where nothing happened naturally or without planning where intrigues and scheming is the fabric of life Caverna is the place where madness of the Cartographers believe it or not is dangerously contagious Just remember this as you focus in surviving Trying to understand Caverna was an invitation to madness It draws you in You twist your mind into new shapes You start to understand Caverna and you fall in love with her Imagine the most beautiful woman in the world but with tunnels as her long tangled snake like hair Her skin is dappled in trap lantern gold and velvety black like a tropical frog Her eyes are cavern lagoons bottomless and full of hunger When she smiles she has diamonds and sapphires for teeth thousands of them needle thin But that sounds like a monster She is Caverna is terrifying This is love not liking You fear her but she is all you can think about Yes Caverna has enough literal and figurative fascinating twists to make me desperately wish for a seuel set in this universe It definitely provided me with enough fodder for those long vivid dreams you have when you are on the verge of just falling asleep or just waking up and it s awesomeCaverna is not a place for the faint hearted It s not a place that takes kindly to preserving innocence scheming and casual murder are your weapons of choice if you d like to keep on living What else would you expect from a place governed by an always awake leader with split personality a place that produces exploding cheeses mind enslaving Perfumes memory wiping wine and captured birdsong in a bowl of jelly It s the place that has to rely on Facesmiths to provide you with a set of carefully crafted facial expressions according to your status and income of course to convey what you want to convey without ever revealing what you are actually thinking The city grows and not just through the effort of pick and shovel She has been stretching spreading and contorting to make room for us all and I think that is why geography no longer makes sense And now take this place where children know to bolt the doors against the assassins and sniff people to detect a trace of mind control Perfume and drop smack into the middle of it an odd and terrible child a maddeningly naive and innocent girl without an arsenal of carefully crafted Faces a girl whose expressions let you see her innermost thoughts rendering her unable to lie in this cunning nest of snakes that passes for a society See what happens when she storms through Caverna like a little tornado just buckle up because it will be a bumpy ride He contemplated Neverfell for a few moments through his freckling eyes Has it ever occurred to you that maybe you re sane That you ve always been sane That perhaps you re the sanest person in the city I hope not whispered Neverfell Because if I m sane then there s something wrong with Caverna something horrible and sick and nobody else has noticed If I m sane then we shouldn t be sitting around talking we should all be clawing our way out as fast as we can Neverfell the girl with the titular face like glass haunted by the secrets of her past that were forcibly removed from her suffocating under well intentioned constraints put on her for her safety and therefore insulated from the scheming on which Caverna society relies from the earliest years is very ill euipped for survival here The only way she can play the never ending Court games is by being used as a pawn and there s no shortage of chessmasters wanting to use her just for that I lied to you and it was easy because you believe everybody means what they say Everyone s lying to you Neverfell Everyone And you can t tell because you re just not very bright when it comes to people Brighten up fast or you re done for She is unrestrained wide eyed excitable naive and irritably innocent even she can see that at times she s uite annoying It was all very well being told that she could do nothing to make things better Neverfell did not have the kind of mind that could take that uietly She did not have the kind of mind that could be uiet at all In many respects poor Neverfell s overactive mind had coped with her lonely and cloistered life in the only way it could It had gone a little mad to avoid going wholly mad To break up the dreary repetition of the day it had learned to skip unpredictably to invent and half believe to shuffle thoughts until they were surprising and unrecognizable And yet as we see her scrape her tender trusting soul on the rough edges of her world and grow some tougher protective scabs on her abraded sensitivity as we see her learn and mature and take responsibility we realize that the little overexcitable brat with Pippi Longstocking like red pigtails and the attention span of a summer addled gnat did that very annoying things she s always been good at managing to turn us into her friends What don t I understand I know you ve been lying to me probably about lots of things And I know there are probably plans inside plans inside plans and I m just a pawn and that s all I ever was Even back when we first met And it doesn t matter because you re my friend You re my friend and you re in trouble All this while you ve been miserable and I ve been too stupid to notice This book had a few concepts that like the Cartography induced madness played with my brain trying if not to break it then at least bend it into new perhaps Caverna like shapes not that common in books clearly aimed at children It broke a few tropes too a blond pretty rich girl may not necessarily be an embodiment of evil a connection and warmth felt at the first glance may not lead to trust and friendship a warm and genuine expression may hide a soul behind it so ugly that you cannot help but shudder and overcoming being just a pawn in the games of others may lead you to an unpleasant surprise For Neverfell it is as if other people are part of her When she believes they are in pain it hurts her like a wound in a pretend limb All I can say I want of Caverna even without Neverfell I want to see its madness again I want to feel its soul I want to look into the eyes of the Kleptomancer and see what looks back at me In short dear Frances Hardinge if I m really really and I mean really good this year can I at some point expect a seuel in my Christmas stocking that I m willing to hang up just for this occasion PS Catie was the one who inspired me to read this lovely book and here is the link to her lovely review that is truly a work of literary art

Read & Download A Face Like Glass Ù PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Tful world comes Neverfell a little girl with no memory of her past and a face so terrifying to those around her that she must wear a mask at all times For Neverfell's emotions are as obvious on her face as those of the most skilled Facesmiths though entirely genuine And that makes her very dangerous indee. 45 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum I really wish I had read this book sooner because in a word it s amazing Sitting in that much needed place between Middle Grade and Young Adult A Face Like Glass is a coming of age novel about a younger protagonist but the challenges she must deal with are no less difficult or complexOur protagonist Neverfell was just a child when she was found practically half drowned in a vat of curds by Master Grandible Caverna s foremost maker of fine magical cheeses But as soon as the cheesemaker cleaned off the little girl and looked at her face he could tell something was seriously wrong From that moment on he has instructed Neverfell to always wear a mask in public though he refuses to tell her the real reason why letting her believe she is hideous and disfiguredFor years afterward Neverfell trains with Grandible as his apprentice learning all about the ways of Caverna and cheese making since she herself has no memory of who she was or where she came from Caverna as its name would suggest is a huge underground city made up of tunnels Skilled craftsmen like Grandible create all sorts of things with fantastical properties to sell to the court like cheeses that can bring on wondrous visions perfumes that can influence the emotions of others wines that can make you forget your worst memories and much Then there are also the special artisans called Facesmiths for unlike the people who live in the world above citizens of Caverna are born with blank faces and no natural instinct to form facial expressions This is where a Facesmith comes in developing and teaching new expressions to those who can afford his or her services The richer you are the facial expressions you can learn while the poor like the laborers and drudges are only taught a few to get them through a life of servitudeBecause so much can be gleaned about your social status from the number of faces you can wear this leads to much demand for Facesmiths among the court and likewise a Facesmith who can develop the most uniue catalogues will also earn a lot of prestige So when Madame Appeline one of Caverna s most prominent and skilled Facesmiths suddenly shows up at Master Grandible s one day Neverfell sees the visit as a chance to change her own fate Appeline is in need of a favor from Grandible but in spite of the cheesemaker s initial refusal Neverfell is convinced that she can make her master change his mind unaware that she is meddling in dangerous matters she doesn t understandEverything about this novel is pure imagination and magic and needless to say I loved every moment While there is a strong emphasis on the whimsical I thought it was applied in just the right amount without becoming overly silly or distracting Every page was filled with new and interesting ideas from the oddly precise sleep cycles that citizens of Caverna must keep due to living in the tunnels to the absurd rules of etiuette that the city elites must follow This is one strange world where society is strongly shaped by the fact that its people are born with the inability to form facial expressions naturally Considering the huge range of emotions that that can be expressed through facial cues just thinking about how every single little facial movement has to be slowly and painfully measured and appliedwell the conseuences of it are staggering One tiny miscalculation or a sudden muscle tic can convey a different meaning and cause a scandal at best or lead to persecution and even punishment by death at worstI was also completely taken with Frances Hardinge s writing which is so beautiful and clever I imagine she faced a lot of challenges for a story like this after all how do you even begin to put yourself into the shoes of a character who has little understanding of the relationship between emotions and expressions Somehow though Hardinge made it work Her descriptions are careful but also creative utilizing unconventional methods to paint a picture of the way someone looks or to convey how they feel The story is also fast paced and addictive and with surprises waiting at every turn I can t say there was ever a moment where I felt boredPerhaps most importantly A Face Like Glass has something I don t often find in a lot of YA and MG books rich imagination and a shockingly original and unpredictable storyline refreshingly light on clich or stereotypes Consider me a fan This may be my first book by Frances Hardinge but you can definitely count on me to read
