    SUMMARY Æ The New Policeman The New PolicemanThis book changed my lifeWhen I was about nine or ten my grandma bought this book having seen a review of it in The Times when it first came out I'm not sure what she thought would interest me probably the music since I've been brought up in a musical family but it certainly workedI was amazed at the entire world Kate Thompson had taken fro

    SUMMARY Æ The New Policeman The New PolicemanI am remarkably underwhelmed by this one Due to the super short chapters and one page musical compositions in between them I found myself turning pages what felt like every 2 seconds which got annoying Also it takes nearly half the book for the pace to pick up and for you to discover just what the heck the story is about to begin with The last half is better than the first so

    SUMMARY Æ The New Policeman The New PolicemanWhat would you do if you could add hours to your day Time is a scarce commodity in the County Galway town of Kinvara Ireland Fifteen year old JJ Liddy a musician from a long line of musicians wants to help his mother have her only birthday wish to find time As a musician and farmer Liddy and his family are already connected to the magic that is old Ireland where fairy rings are kept intact and musicians are considered antithetical to the Catholic Church

    SUMMARY Æ The New Policeman The New PolicemanThe residents of Kinvara a small town in Ireland feel as though time is slipping away from them nobody has enough time and it just seems to be getting worse When JJ’s mother asks for time for her birthday JJ sets out to find it for her and finds himself caught up in a world of fantastical creatures out of Irish mythology This has an interesting set up but it takes forever to get going and never caught my interest that much I will admit that this is partly a grouch on my part – the chapters are all very short and each is prefaced with a page of Irish folk music so because I read fast the page turn rate drove me nuts Possibly it isn't fair to blame the book for this but i

    SUMMARY Æ The New Policeman The New PolicemanA book about time and where it is going This book has very short chapters that open with the musical score for traditional Irish music It's a shame that the book didn't come with a CD of the songs The Irish setting with the main character playing the fiddle since the age of five is captivating as is the setting of Tir na Nog the land of eternal youth Time is being trapped into Tir na Nog and the fairies there are starting to age Also time is being lost in our world and life gets and frantic The short chapters would encourage a reluctant reader to keep going and the pacin

    SUMMARY Æ The New Policeman The New PolicemanPossibly the uickest 400 page book I've read A fast light read with enough depth to leave me guessing I'd figured that A was B or was C B but not that A was B was C Not so fussed on the cliched Corrupt Catholic Priest even if it was excused with JJ went to mass every Sunday; he had a lot of respect for priests just not this one; but kudos to Thompson for having the guts to bring the ChurchMagic debate into a kids' book even if the Chu
