Feb 14, Pranta Ghosh Dastider rated it really liked it. Just finished reading the book. It was one of those books which you know that could go far far and deep to deeper with plot but gave you a glimpse of how great the story can be and keep you on the edge by making you want to look forward for the upcoming novels of the series. The story starts with a detective case, a very silly one. But the person or the thing investigating the case is not to be taken lightly! I mean come on!
How often do you get to see Just finished reading the book. How often do you get to see a authentic dragon detective in the real world! I have never seen one in my life.
And that alone made me interested to get into the story at once. However, the plot didn't even looked much interesting at the first pages. I mean there were twists that made appear pooped up question bubbles over the top of my head, but I didn't know how the hell it could be interesting. Then around the halfway through the book it really got interesting. As I discovered how grand the whole plot can be, I was really excited to race towards end.
But, keeping the remaining length in mind I was certain that the story won't explain everything and take me everywhere I want to go by the end.
Either way I carried on reading. By the end I knew I was right with the assumptions and actually most of the good parts were kept for later, I have still enjoyed the story and it's characters. As for the character developments, I would say it was great. The main two characters were really well portrait-ed and their relationship developed nicely with time, and with the end it made me want to see more of them.
Being said all these, I would have to admit the plot wasn't flawless. There were explanations I didn't like, but from the fantasy aspect could still ignore.
The Dragon Detective Agency: The Case of the Missing Cats by Gareth P. Jones
Some characters did things that they were not physically capable of, and some got less surprised where they could have been so shocked that they could stop breathing! And people were convinced with lame excuses while they could have questioned the outcome furthermore. Also the lack of action is visible, maybe it has been kept for later books.
All these drawbacks make it down by a star in my eyes, otherwise I could have given it a full 5 stars. In conclusion, the story is good. The detective elements are in there, the mystery keeps hanging throughout the story, and even after the story makes you look for more. Most of the characters where within their own characteristics and was distinguishable, which very important for any story. There is fun, there is serious moments and there is diversity, as none of the characters are completely overwhelming!
