About this deal

Ho particolarmente apprezzato le atmosfere della storia, i personaggi e tutti i riferimenti al mito di Pandora. However, the myth of Pandora's box (which should hereby be renamed Pandora's Jar) is central to the plot.

Our mission is to enable teachers to easily select high-quality books for classrooms, home-school reading and school libraries. One day a mysterious Greek vase which is bigger than Dora herself is delivered and her uncles odd and suspicious behaviour does nothing to dampen her intrigue of what this item is or why it is now locked in the basement out of view from prying eyes. Pandora ‘Dora’ was the orphaned daughter of two archeologists-excavators-plunderers but they were respected experts and sellers of antiquities prior to their deaths.

Knowing this Pandora quietly ekes out her life in the background wishing that one day the custom jewelry pieces she dreams of making for the gentry will one day catch someone's eye and allow her to prosper on her own. Edward Lawrence is a young man also seeking acceptance but of a different kind as he strives to be a part of the Society of Antiquities even though those in charge don’t share his views or vision and when Dora enlists him to help her unlock whatever secrets this vase holds, both of them may very well have wish they had left this ancient relic alone…. Many school suppliers, including Pandora Books, are offering banded ‘real’ books to widen children’s reading experiences and to promote reading enjoyment. The concept is great and it at least remains intriguing to the last, creating anticipation for each new chapter.

The attention given to the study of antiquities and the descriptions of things such as Dora's jewellery, the objects at Blake's Emporium, and Lady Latimer's soiree, all help to give the story even more depth. It is only by reading the books that we can be sure that the text level is consistent and that the content is appropriate for a school library. Całość wypada blado i przede wszystkim szalenie ✨nudno✨, bo Pandora składa się tak naprawdę z dwóch wątków na krzyż, czterech sekwencji, a na dodatek ma złoczyńcę z kartonu. Also, the storylines of Dora and Edward compliment each other nicely as they are both enduring difficult lives until they meet. There is so much packed into this story and every detail is a joy to read, but while the pithos maintains a constant presence and at first seems to be front and centre of everything, it ends up playing somewhat second fiddle to Dora's jewellery venture and her burgeoning relationship with Edward.I found his story to be most tragic and I would have loved him to take a more central place instead of the usual pairing of a young woman meets a dashing young man and the usual cliché romance. He is caring and kind-hearted, although he does become a bit too over-protective of Dora as his feelings for her grow. I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but that’s what initially drew me to Pandora. There were some good twists and revelations along the way, but one or two others did not feel quite right in the context of the story. We are a team of book experts that specialise in curating books for schools, reducing teachers’ workload by offering collections that meet schools’ needs.

These collections comprise our recommendations for the best children’s books on each curriculum subject. The author still manages to devote a lot of time to character development, and Dora in particular is given a lengthy backstory. Haven Books is an educational book supplier and publisher, providing perfectly collated book selections and teaching resources directly to schools. I can’t definitely see why it was compared to Sarah Perry’s work, and I can’t wait to get a physical copy to shelf next to The Essex Serpent. The goods Hezekiah sells are mostly forgeries or items obtained illegally, and Dora spends much of her time in her attic room feeling unloved with only her pet magpie Hermes for company, harbouring aspirations to be a renowned jewellery designer.

With a convoluted plot full of buried family histories and fantastical archaeological theories, Pandora is a readable, solid debut.
