A Book I Didn't Get

Skip Prospero’s Children by Jan Siegel, if it is on your reading list. I don't know if it was because the author was from England (I doubt it) or if it was because the book dealt with a subject I read infrequently, but I just did not get this book. It was slow moving, until the shift into another world. The resolution was left hanging. I didn't understand what the resolution had to do with the characters in the modern world (as opposed to the world that is traveled too.) This is one fantasy novel I'd recommend avoiding. It is the first of a trilogy. I'm a quarter interested in checking out the other two, just to see if the series as a whole is better than the first part.
