    About "Anne Hamilton"

    1. Anne Hamilton

      Librarian Note There is than one author in the GoodReads database with this name See this thread for information For twenty years, I was the coordinator of an annual camp for children based around The Chronicles of Narnia That experience shaped a lot of my thinking about how readers enjoy fantasy Like CS Lewis, my fantasy story Many Coloured Realm began with a picture in my mind s eye a boy without arms floating in a field of stars and faced with an impossible choice.My non fiction series beginning with God s Poetry can be traced back to the observation that Lewis comes from the Welsh word for lion The discovery of name covenants led to the discovery of threshold covenants, as well as many other long forgotten aspects of our Judeo Christian heritage I love exploring words, mathematics and names All of these combine in my books, whether they are fiction or non fiction, or whether they re for adults or children, whether they re academic in tone or primarily devotional I hope my readers always come away from my books with a renewed delight for the world around us and a child like wonder for its awesome aspects.

    1. 'Expect the unexpected,’ it says on the back cover. That is certainly true. You will find a plot with lots of twists and turns and a vast cast of characters including elves and goblins, a flying penguin and various other creatures. Add to that a time element as Robby and Chris seek to save Stephen, Chris’ brother, before time runs out and you are guaranteed to keep turning the pages.The prologue plunges the reader right into action from a previous time before transporting the reader back to [...]


    2. I can remember reading certain books as a child and wishing I had an attic where I could sit and read snuggled in a blanket with the wind blowing outside. Many-Coloured Realm is such a book. I really, truly wanted to be in an attic room lit by filtered sunlight, or candles as I read it. Well written with an intricate plot, Many Coloured Realm is not for the hasty reader or someone out for a simple straightforward read. Like the land itself, the plot has many facets, twists and turns, ups and dow [...]


    3. I feel as if my feet haven’t touched back into the real world yet. Many-Coloured Realm is like no other parable, fantasy, allegory or epic I’ve ever read before. What a stunning stand-off between the forces of good and evil! Those fantastic characters have still got a hold on my mind. Genius!Robby and Chris have entered the shabby, colourless realm of the goblins to rescue Chris’ brother Stephen from a hopeless looking predicament. But how can they help when the king of the goblin realm is [...]


    4. This is a difficult book for me to review as I don’t read a lot of fantasy. It is a complicated tale of goblins and elves, various realms and time zones. It is the story of children on a dangerous mission but I was never quite sure who was on whose side. It is a story that appears to end in a tear jerking tragedy but ultimate ends in hope. The story is apparently written in a mathematical design, not that I would have noticed. Unfortunately I suspect I also missed many others elements that an [...]


    5. Four reviews from our CALEB reviewers:Overall rating: Four and a half stars.(1)Delightful, zany, captivating and quirky are some descriptions that immediately leap to mind of this YA fantasy that has all the ingredients of a classic. Robby and Chris are two ordinary children who enter the goblin realm to rescue Chris’ step brother, Stephen.They are never endowed with magic powers; they never become super heroes; they always remain themselves but throughout the adventure they grow, learn and di [...]


    6. Many-Coloured Realm is a complex YA of depth and imagination. Its fantasy realm is entered through a quite ordinary portal in our world, which turns out to be a bit like a rabbit hole turned on its head. Robby and Chris enter to rescue Stephen, a friend and brother, who is imprisoned in the Goblin King’s domain. The plight of the three young people is worsened by a threat of doom (the Shroud) announced against the king’s domain by the demon, Zzael. Racing against time, which is very differen [...]


    7. Many-coloured Realm is a young-adults fantasy novel by Australian author Anne Hamilton. As with many fantasies, it follows the adventures of a human from our world who has passed into an alternate fantasy world.The world in which the protagonist, Robby, finds herself in has quite a unique feeling to it. There is a lot going on in this world, and in the early parts of the book it can feel a bit disorienting, but this fits in well with the disorientation that Robby is feeling. There is a great dea [...]


    8. I really enjoyed reading this book. At the first half I wasn't so engrossed and it wasn't page-turning, but as I progressed through and got closer to the end I got more and more interested. The characters were complex and real, their struggles - though, not something I would experience - were very relatable and I felt for them. I'd really recommend this book. Four and a half stars.


    9. Robertina, or Robby, is in a quandary. Her group school project with partners Neil and Stephen is due and neither boy is stepping up to help. Stephen is a bully and Neil is just plain weird. Robby's fears that Stephen will harm their odd third partner are put aside when Stephen disappears. In her quest to discover what happened to him, Robby stumbles into a confusing and fantastic realm. Neil isn't a human boy after all, but part of this bizarre place, and Stephen followed him there only to be t [...]


    10. I’m not so sure I can describe what this book is about as well as I can describe what it is like. Picture the tipsy-turvy world of Alice in Wonderland where practical rules do not apply, through in a quest to save the world and some Christian allegory a la The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and/or The Dawn Treader, add elves and goblins, heroes and heroines and you might have gotten at least part of what this book is about.The Many-Coloured Realm is a book that would have made me feel reall [...]


    11. Two and a half stars, sometimes I liked this book and at other times I threw it to the floor in disgust. It is as strange as my dreams, stranger. I think I would have enjoyed it more had I been younger when I first read it. One of the things that bugged me most was the names, it did eventually explain why most of the goblins had names like "By" "To" "And" but it still drove me crazy and I had to read too many sentences overIt is definitely a very unique book, with a ton of interesting concepts, [...]


    12. This book was different and cool in it's own fantastic way. I saw it at the library and in my mind I'm saying wow this could be awesome and it was. I love the play with gravity in this book and there are flying penguins in this book okay so yeah I LOVE this book.
