This is not part of the CSFFBT yet, but Cris and I have had an opportunity to read “North! Or Be Eaten” by Andrew Peterson before hand and I have to say it is one of the finest books I’ve read. It is his 2nd in the Wingfeather saga and takes the reader on adventures through the Glipwood forest, through the thieving Stranders of the East Bend and in to the dreaded Fork Factory. It is a tale of dread, woe, misery, acheivment, accomplishment and overcoming obstacles. Through it all Andrew weaves bits of the Creator’s truth in so seamlessly that it would seem unnatural to have it not be in there.
I love how he brings out the strengths of the characters, along with their weaknesses and does not make all the characters be hero’s, as in never doing anything wrong, but hero’s in the fact that through their weaknesses they realize them for what they are and have to deal with the consequences of their actions, and I love seeing how they overcome them.
This book might be slated as young adult, but I would recommend it to any age group that seeks adventure in the written form.
Please make sure to read his first book “On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness” and you’ll see what I mean.
