What or who pulled me to buy "and the pendulum has swung ..." back in 2007.Then I without any hesitation took it, and after reading, winged positive emotions, no regrets, and acquired the following products.The main character - a nice (in spite of all his experience of ugliness), a young man, sympathetic and not indifferent to the suffering of others.Dialogue leads clever and original, not to mention the mental conversations with himself or with his eternal "girlfriend" Mantle (a unique magic power).But, having the habit of periodically returning to some of the books, I thought, and not to see me again whether to Gerona, in order to finally determine the location of a book about his adventures.Remove away to get rid of when you move or get rid of right away after reading?

But, having the habit of periodically returning to some of the books, I thought, and not to see me again whether to Gerona, in order to finally determine the location of a book about his adventures.Remove away to get rid of when you move or get rid of right away after reading?The book itself is divided into two parts, so their reasoning will try to split the corresponding number.The "I - Cursed, I - a freak, I still deserved it." About forty pages I quietly immersed in the atmosphere of a book with her ​​magical world and interestingly crafted magic, suddenly came into my head the first "bell".Okay, so a man can sometimes complain about destiny.But, more and more and more.But this is not always worth it.

Is that whining?Moreover, just as slaves landed.Of course, these "complaints" and are often spoken of Gerona house and his family, which naturally wanted to know.

But, more and more and more.But this is not always worth it.You have family curse?And extract from it for themselves and for others!Just learn harder, so then in moments of danger not complain that it did not pay enough attention.Sometimes they seem to be enough is enough.From his remarks came through deceit: mediocre jokes, which become sharply to philosophical reflection.

You do not have to climb out of their way to your sister - though god for you - proud of you.Despite almost ezhestranichnye complaints Gerona dialogues are constructed completely differently.And it is not that the author tried to create his character a sense of humor and cheerful image of a witty guy.In addition, I frequently wondered, "Where is the logic?".Or the author hoped that Jeroen is not quite an ordinary person?I can not give an answer.This lack of logic does not end there.

For example, I could not understand his behavior as a slave, quite uncharacteristic for such a provision (excessive raspoyasannost).Or his boss has quite a significant position in society?But I know for sure: this is not the first book in which the protagonist falls into slavery, but the first book, where he behaves so unusual (read as a counter-intuitive) way.Jeroen constantly talking about how everyone hates it, but in every way mocks when he sincerely ask for forgiveness (the case with the dwarf).What is it?

This lack of logic does not end there.Or mortally offended perechС‘rkivaya all the good things that happened in his childhood, and can not forgive the understatement in the request, that it does not threaten.Trying to teach elementary readers to show pride or "unfortunate" the protagonist?

What is it?By the wau to stigma Gerona I began to be treated differently.Part II. - I'm terrible, I can not please them. - Oh, we are so grateful to you!Approximately so constructed and most of Gerona dialogues with other characters work (do not forget about affectedness).Personally, I could see here the notorious "Marty-Stu" with its unlimited possibilities, the general, if not love, then at least sympathy.elf.Logic, ay ?!

By the way, if Gerona?Gerona is worth only to dress in women's garb (forced "Masquerade") and drop a couple of phrases, as in he immediately falls in love ...And elves are presented here as a proud, arrogant and haughty race.And it's not only her absence (or the manifestation of momentary sympathy).In general, the conclusion is the same: to collect will in a fist, and gradually complete the entire cycle in order to make it easier to decide the fate of books.

Logic, ay ?!I do not say anything about the suffering of the hero at the lack of attention from the opposite sex, while she counted about three such "attentive" women.In one single product it is hard enough to judge others.

who knows, maybe the author's "first attempt" was a lump?

And the pendulum has swung ... 3 out of 5 stars
