O'Brien ☆ 5 Read Read The Silver Crown ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Il più grande desiderio di Ellen che vive in un tranuillo sobborgo americano è uello di diventare regina sia pure per gioco Sarà dunue felicissima di ricevere per il suo compleanno una corona This book haunted my childhood memories for years a mysterious specter the title of which I couldn t recall What incomplete details I had retained eventually proved adeuate for discovery on the internet Once I identified the text it lingered in my unconscious until I happened to be in the juvenile fiction section of the public library one day in my mid 30s Browsing an aisle I turned around and saw the title on the spine before me a spooky beacon of serendipity as I had not been looking for itI checked it out read it to my son and got to relive the experience It does fall short of great fantasy largely due to insubstantial resolutions With a shared world similar to though less distinct than J K Rowling s dichotomy of wizards and muggles the story demanded rational conclusions to what it proposed Aside from the disappointing ending this story was one of my first glimpses into fantasy and abstract concepts of time freedom telepathy sanity and subliminally technology s role in human development It also dealt with death and misery in a way I had never encountered in a children s tale The Silver Crown certainly nurtured a burgeoning philosophical curiosity on my young psyche and O Brien deserves credit for that
