Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Continuity errors
« on: August 08, 2019, 02:35:18 AM »
I just started A Gathering of Ravens by Scott Oden. Now this may (or may not) be the best fantasy book I never read because by page 7 one of our protagonists has an oak hafted axe and has roasted salt pork.
These are silly little errors but ones I run into far too frequently in my reading and its the stupid stuff that is plain wrong that stops me believing the big stuff like trolls in this case.
For those who read this should I continue or will it just annoy continue to annoy me?

I remember this book being read to my sister when I was maybe ten but had forgotten the title and found it today while looking for something else. Now the story has stayed with me for 40 odd years and I am scared to read it in case it spoils the magic (suck Faerie) but it may be a good one to loose on the children or grandchildren.

Quote
Major Palfrey is off to war. He warns his two daughters, Dinah and Dorinda, that while he is away they must behave themselves: "When there is wind on the moon, you must be very careful how you behave. Because if it is an ill wind and you behave badly, it will blow straight into your heart, and then you will behave badly for a long time to come." And so it proves: before long the girls are drinking a potion provided by the local witch and turning into kangaroos, getting stuck in the zoo, and staging an escape along with their new friends, a golden puma and a silver falcon.

Their appetite for naughtiness and cleverness whetted, Dinah and Dorinda turn their attention to freeing their dancing master, Casimir Corvo, from jail. And then comes their greatest adventure: Count Hulagu Bloot, the tyrant of Bombardy – who loves torturing people and eating peppermint creams – has captured their father and imprisoned him in the dungeons of Bloot's castle. The two girls, together with their puma friend and their beloved dancing teacher, smuggle themselves from England to Bombardy in a room made of furniture hidden inside a huge removal van and stage a dramatic rescue.


They don't write them like that anymore.
