My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I don’t think I have ever read a book that kept me giggling and smiling throughout the entire story. However, this book was magic! From the very start I had a constant smirk on my face. Who wouldn’t when the main character is Bertram a Half Human/Troll who was raised to be all Troll and his sidekick a Lemming named Cliff that keeps finding different way to kill himself, yet fails at every attempt. Together these two are a comedic duo that is a must read. Throw in some adventure to the Topside, and back into the mountain where the trolls live and you got yourself a can’t put down, laugh out loud book! Happy reading everyone!
The Dark Forest is a world. Cities, towns and villages exist like islands in a green sea, while in the Forest itself live hermits, wizards and all manner of weird and wonderful creatures – some invented, some strangely familiar. Trollogy! follows the misadventures of poor old Bertram – a troll who’s a complete failure as he can’t tell chalk from granite, but who discovers a talent for cooking. (His rock cakes are amazing!)
