I really like his books. Seventh Tower? The Fall was an awesome book. I can't wait to read the other ones to it. I like his style of writing because it's sort of fantasy and fiction at the same time. I'm a very big fan of his writing. And i can't wait to read other books that he's written.

I read Garth Nix's "Shade's Children" kind of by accident. I pick it up in the library, never even heard of Garth Nix before hand, and I loved the book. He has become one of favorite writers and I can't wiat to read all of his others. His characters are so real when something bad happens to them you really feel bad because you grow to love them. In their own special way they take a place in your feelings an dyou very sorry to finish the book and have to put it down, but then when you read the book again it's just as good as the first time you read it.

Okay well first off I love the Abhorsen trilogy and ,no, I have not read any of his other books...He is an awesome writer and I can't wait for the last book to come out !!
It all started when I went book shopping and I saw this book called Sabriel....it looked interesting and after reading a few pages from the Prologue, I bought it . And what do you know... I became a fan...;so props on Garth Nix on his awesome way of mixing adventure with that hauntingly good fantasy element you can't forget, into a great trilogy !! :P
Aloha back and forth !!

Garth Nix has created the most wonderful books. I've read all of the Seventh Tower series, and they were so good. I've also read Sabriel and Lirael, and I'm currently waiting for Abhorsen to come out. I've also read Shade's Children, which was another wonderful book. He always creates amazing books. If you like fantasy books, you'll love all of his books. Garth Nix is now my favorite author.

First I would like to say that I wouldn't read unless I was going to fail a class, until one of my good friends told me about Sabriel. After I started I couldn't put the book down. Then I read Lirael it was the same thing I couldn't put it down neither. (p.s. your my favorite author!)

I think I'll start by stating the obvious, Garth Nix is a great writer! I've never read anything so imginative (not to mention cool) as the Charter, Free magic, Abhorsen, etc. The bells and all that sort of stuff was very neat and the characters were some fo the most realistic I've ever read about outside of a non-fiction book! Sabriel was one of the best books I've ever read and Lirael was even better (the Disrepuatble Dog reminded me of my own dog), though I hated the fact that the ending was such a cliff-hanger. I absolutly can't wait unitl book #3 comes out! Oh and BTW, Mogget is cool. :-)
>>By Jillian (Saturday, 25 Jan 2003 12:59)
I love your Abhorsen series!!I can't wait until Abhorsen comes out in stores!!Lirael really leaves you hanging in the end!!Plus the fact that the twists about Lirael is really cool!!I really liked Sabriel but Lirael is the best!!I wonder what would happen to Lirael.I really can't wait until 1/2003!!!It really is cool how everything links to each other,And Im really interested in "The Beginning".

I (like Rosie) have only read the first edition of (The Seventh Tower).I thought it was a great book. Garth Nix (I would have to say) is the best athor of fantasy Books that I've read in a while.
>>By Moo (Saturday, 25 Jan 2003 12:59)
i've read all of Garth Nix's books cept The Ragwitch, which im currently on the lookout for. His plots are amazing. They are always fantasies that seem so real. There are always great endings and interesting turn of events. I can't wait for Abhorsen.
>>By MaNdA (Saturday, 25 Jan 2003 12:59)
Sabriel and Lirael: Daughter of the Clayr were both amazing books! My mom happened to think so too, since she stole them from my backpack and read them herself!:) Anyways...I'm having tons of conflicts in finding The Abhorsen. Hopefully soon I will get a copy.
I started reading Shade's Children, but I really couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll try again in a few months. Are there any other books that are really amazing by Nix? Give me a shout if you want to tell me!:)
I think that Garth Nix is a great author with much creativity. He definatly deserves some recognition. On a last note, I think more people should read Nix's writings, because in a way, its more entertaining than Harry Potter, by J.K. Rowlings. Thanx everyone!:)

A few weeks ago I looked up the book Sabriel to read for my book club at school. My friend had done a report on it the year before and she had told me it was a lot like the Song of the Lioness books by Tamora Pierce which I totally fell in love with. But Sabriel was so intriguing and was definetly a breath taker.
It turned out that I had a project at school I had to do, and guess what, I got the second book! My mom told me I had to do that book or Sabriel, or if I finished it. Once I was done with Lirael she told me to do my project. Yeah right! I told her I NEEDED the third book to finish off the trilogy but I got it from my librarian later in the week! I just finished it like right now and these are my favorite books! The friend that told me about these books is also finishing up Abhorsen, and she got it before me! We are both going to do our project together, double the fun and triple the books! Loved it!

Garth Nix is an amazing writer and I can't wait to read his next piece of work. He has such a great imagingation and it seems so believable. I mean I didn't even know about him or any of his books but it got assigned to me as a project and I couldn't stop reading it. Every day after school I would come home and read hours and hours. I have also read Sabriel and Librael and thought that those books were amazing. They had such fantastic detail and had such high fantasy. I love his books and I can't wait to read his next piece of work.
>>By Kyle (Saturday, 15 Feb 2003 00:48)
I had picked up Sabriel in eight grade (i'm now in eleventh grade) and I only started reading it because of the great explanation of Bunnys death. but then I read the rest of the book and absolutley fell in love with the characters and for the longest time I felt like I was the only guy that had ever read these great books. well I have read Abhorsen and it completley blows away both books!!! its awsome. I wish it wasn't the end though.
>>By Evan (Saturday, 22 Feb 2003 06:24)
he needs to improve his story's theam and plot. he needs to catch the readers attention of even all ages. i think that in his 7th tower books he needs a better plot
>>By anonomous (Wednesday, 26 Feb 2003 00:06)
I adored the Abhorsen trilogy. Only Sabriel and (for some bizzare reason) Abhorsen are out in England at the moment but my school librarian sent off to America for Lirael. Wooo! Me and my friend saw Sabriel in WHSmith - the white cover was so gorgeous, with the charter mark in fire on it. Well done to whoever designed that. I will definitely be looking for more of his books. Hopefully they will be available over here because I spend quite a lot of time in bookshops, especially the fantasy section (I'm aware of how sad that sounds) and I'd never heard of him.
>>By Maisy (Friday, 28 Feb 2003 18:16)
the reason i started to read garth nix's book was when I was complainy that there wern't any good books out to read and she handed my sabriel once i started to read the book i couldn't put the book down then i read lirel wich i loved even more i'm in the middle of Abhorsen and i really hope that he will write another book about the old kingtom
>>By Aurora (Saturday, 22 Mar 2003 02:21)
I've only read Sabriel and Lirael, as the others aren't out in the uk, or i can't find them. I first read sabriel cos the cover caught my attention, and i couldn't put it down! I then HAD to order LIrael from the USA, and was hooked by that as well. I now can't wait to read Abhorsen, as the first 2 were so amazing and i really want to know what happens. I think that Garth Nix is one of the best writers around and i definatelty want to read more of his work.
>>By Lady A (Friday, 4 Apr 2003 21:22)
I got Sabriel in my school library. I wanted to read a book and searched the shelfs for good book. I found Sabriel. I read it. I loved it. Then I found Lireal. I loved it too. I loved these books so much that I bought the whole trilogy. Abhorsen too. This trilogy is the best. My favorite is Sabriel. I also own all books of Seventh Tower. It is goood. Aenir is my favorite. Garth Nix is the a great author.
P.S. Hey anonomous guy! Shut up!
>>By Alex (Monday, 7 Apr 2003 05:42)
I love his books! Sabriel, Lirael, and Abhorsen they are so Fantastic! So magical and creepy but good! I read them all I just wish I had them. I especially love Abhorsen and my favorite character is the disreputable dog! I hope Garth Nix writes more! He is the best Author ever!
>>By Horse Chick 17-7 (Monday, 28 Apr 2003 19:44)
I hope Garth Nix would turn Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen into a movie it would be awesome and scary!
>>By Horse Chick 17-7 (Monday, 28 Apr 2003 19:48)
the seventh tower series is the best!
I have read 1-4 and they are great
>>By dvlman (Tuesday, 6 May 2003 06:18)
I LOVE the Old Kingdom trilogy! I can't wait to get my hands on Abhorsen! The series is so different from 'normal' fantasy, it has this great blend of fantasy and reality that you can't get everywhere, and the new approach to magic is to die for!
>>By Georgio (Friday, 9 May 2003 00:25)
Garth Nix is such an awesome writter!!! I have read Sabriel, Lireal, and Abhorsen, and definately enjoyed all of them--I mean who wouldn't? The books are soooooooooooo spellbinding, and seem so real! I hope he will write a sequel to Abhorsen or a book that explains the events that had happened before the first book, Sabriel (sort of like what other authors do when writing a series of books). If you haven't read his books, then you are missing out on a whole lot!
>>By Ashley (Tuesday, 17 Jun 2003 07:15)
First of all i love fantasy, instead of paying attention in class i read. I have read a ton of books classics and new titles both. My friends were always labeling me bookworm. And always saying books are so boring! Intill I made them read Sabriel. I was in Barnes and Nobles. Looking for a book to just pop out at me. It ended up being Sabriel. I took it to school i was automatically hooked. All day i could not put it down. I showed to my friends they read it loved it. We all went to buy Lireal. All of us finished the next day went to buy Aborhorsen, finished it. And pretty soon we had already re read all of them. Out of all the many books i have read the Old Kingdom Trilogys are my favorites. A movie would be awsome!!! So would more books, you just can't get enough of the's books. Im really suprised thier not way more popular than they are. They deserve to be bestsellers!!! I have been just going into chats and saying read Sabriel by Garth Nix. and if you have not read it and are saying to yourself, its just like all those other fantasy books out thier. Im telling you its totally original!!! READ IT!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!! READ SABRIEL BY GARTH NIX !!!!!!!!!
>>By Mattie (Thursday, 19 Jun 2003 04:49)
WO WO WAZ UP! HOMIE JS GARTH NIXS BK'S ARE AWSOME READ EM!!!!!!!
>>By JAJA (Thursday, 19 Jun 2003 04:57)
I picked up Sabriel at the library and I loved it. When it got to the point that I was checking the book out almost every other week and re-reading it half-a-million times, my mom bought it for me. 8^p Lirael was awsome (of course) and my only complaint was that it was a cliff-hanger. I just read Abhorsen, and I think I may end up reading it as many times as I read Sabriel. These books are great, and are still good after a third reading.
NOTE: If you like Garth Nix, I suggest Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar books and David Eddings' Belgariad series.
>>By MEA (Monday, 23 Jun 2003 22:04)
i loved every thing hes comed up with and i especialy loved the sabriel trilogy and i truly hope he will come out with a fourth for sure i will be the first to buy it
>>By dr richope (Friday, 4 Jul 2003 08:19)
First off, I LOVED LOVED LOVED the Abhorsen trilogy. Does anyone feel that Nick and Lirael have a thing for each other? I REALLY hope he's going to continue the book. Maybe talk more about Lirael as Abhorsen with the golden hand and all and have Chlorr as the main 'villan'. I'm addicted to this book.
**If Garth Nix is reading this now: PLEASE RIGHT ANOTHER SEQUEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!**
>>By Marie (Wednesday, 9 Jul 2003 01:34)
AWESOMENESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just finished reading Abhorsen and it was the absolute best! Shade's Children was a really awesome book, too. And yes, I agree with the person above me, I do think Lirael and Nick had a thing for each other and there should DEFINETELY be a sequel or SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, I'm like, "Is that it!!!????" If there is no sequel, I will be seriously depressed! There will be an emptiness in my heart that will make me so depressed that I might commit suicide! I love those books so MUCH!!!!!! Oh, by the way, I think Garth Nix should get more into Sam as a Wallmaker. That'd be cool to see what he does. OK, I'm done now.
