A Monk’s Tail

A Monk's Tail by [Spencer, Kyle]

The reader is promised a whole exiting and action-packed adventure with the interesting characters in the book. I totally loved how the book started. What better way to grip the reader’s interest than to start off with a literary stylistic device? I found the author’s use of a quote at the beginning of the book, which also happens to be a simile, to be very creative of him. “The world is like a house; it can be as comforting or as cold as you make it and everyone who passes through leaves their mark.” reads the simile.

The writer is not shy to express himself as he uses curse words in some parts of the book. This may be too much for young readers, but the story stayed entertaining regardless. The main character, the monk, narrates the story in a phenomenal manner that I would pay to have him narrate his stories to me. I found Bow to be an interesting character. His mind was a little complex and he sometimes did things I did not like, but I still loved him. I can say I had a love-hate relationship with the character. I liked the part where our very interesting monk was captured by the leopard warlord. Not that I enjoy reading misery, but I knew what would follow would be fun to read.

Can we talk about the conversations in the book? I fancied how each character communicated. Leena and Bow’s dialogue when they were introducing themselves to each other was one of my favorite parts. I love how Leena tried to pronounce Bow’s name, and Bow chuckling a little bit as she did that. I pictured how she was saying the name and even tried to practically do it.

Readers of mystery novels will immensely enjoy reading about these adventures in the forest. The feeling when reading about this town is thrilling and I wished the writer could have added a few more chapters. Bow’s escape was also exciting to read. The fear, adventure, suspense and ambiguity of some scenes made the reading exhilarating. Unlike other animal stories which are sometimes monotonous to read because characters are given the same traits, A Monk’s Tail was far from that. The plot starts off in a stirring manner, and the story line keeps getting enthralling as one reads on.

The nun, the alchemist, Talia, the leopards, and every character made the plot worth reading. The author’s way of creating characters was genius, as one could see how each of them played their role. This is a thrilling book bursting at the seams with adventure and carried along by intriguing characters.
