Comments to eBook Alexandria: In Which the Extraordinary Correspondence of Griffin Sabine Unfolds

This is the second book in the second Griffin and Sabine trilogy. It takes up where the first left off as we find Griffin corresponding with Isabella and Sabine corresponding with Matthew. In this book, the intrigue and suspense increase with the introduction of a villain in particular and a sinister group in general that are menacing Isabella and are after Griffin and Sabine. Matthew is working at a dig in Eygpt, where an unusual statue has been revealed. The two sets of partners work together to put Frolatti and the other group off their trail as the book comes to a climax and a cliffhanger. The art continues to be gorgeous and there is a heavy dose of mythology in the storyline. While I like Isabella and Matthew, their connection and passion does not seem as strong or intriguing as that of Griffin and Sabine. I am glad that I had the third book and did not have to wait for the conclusion of the series.

I rushed out to buy "Alexandria" as I have done with all of Bantock's books since I was first gifted with "Griffin and Sabine" many years ago.
I love his work....his books are such a visual treat that even if I do not know what is going on, I enjoy them. I love handling them and looking for hidden clues in the drawings.
That said, I feel that I don't know Isabella and Matthew as well as I knew Griffin and Sabine. G and S were much less mysterious and I was able to make more sense of what was going on. I also felt that Bantock wrote each of his original trilogy without resorting to cliffhangers, a device which I find a bit off-putting, and which he used in "The Gryphon" and again in "Alexandria".
However, none of these complaints will stop me from buying anything Nick Bantock writes!

Nick Bantock books welcome the reader into a never never land. I needed this book to fill out my set, and was not disappointed.

The book "Alexandria" takes you on a journey that is full of fantasy and mystery. I am cherishing my collection of "Griffin and Sabine". Someone has started their own postcard correspondence on Flick'r, so check it out. It is not as good as the original, but very interesting, especially the hand drawn pictures. Maybe I am showing a bit of favoritism;oh well....... No issues with shipping or description of the book (new). I am loving the collage and have started my own. The collection is a good read from v. 1 - v. 6 and the graphics are extraordinary.

The series wasn't as good as I thought it would be after all the positive reviews I read.
Goltikree
Needed to fill my collection. All his books are great.
Ydely
I have read all of Sabine and Griffin's letters... all books. Fasinating reading.
This book has the same visual flair as the previous books- it's the narative that seems slack. To be fair, these books are more about feeling and emotion than plot, but nothing seems to happen in this one- I didn't feel it had much focus. It might be time to wrap the plot up in a book or two.
