Goth Girl series (Books 1 - 4) by聽Chris Riddell (2013 - 2017)
Tumblr media
Goth Girl is a very bizarre and peculiar series of the books. I thought it would be more macabre and burtonesque, but my expectations played a joke on me - it's not books about death, gothic and deadly pale characters (alas!). The main hero of this book series is the serious girl named Ada Goth, who live in big and complicated mansion with her estranged and poetic father and a large staff of servants (some of them are children and Ada's friends as well as members of the Attic Club). Also in these books you can meet vampires, werewolves or zombies. So it's a little bit macabre, after all.
Every book is filled with a big amount of the weird characters who arrived to Ghastly-Gorm Hall for a musical festival, bake-off or Literary Dog Show. Most of the names (if not all of them) is a easter eggs and references to books characters, historic personalities and modern celebrities with their names being a clever wordplay. I'm not sure I understand all the references and maybe some of the wordplay was lost in translation. But I must add that I didn't like heavy references to modern celebrities like Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift or J.K. Rowling, because it's killing all the atmosphere of the book (especially Trump-based character in last chapters of fourth book, - but I understand, the author is political cartoonist).
In some sense Goth Girl books is very girly, because all that attention to detailed descriptions of the weird clothes that Ada wearing from chapter to chapter. A lot of attention goes to the food too - very unusual food, I need to say. "Odd", "strange", these the right words to describe books about Ada Goth. You can hardly call the life in Ghastly-Gorm Hall a simple and normal. And, of course, there is always a good mystery just behind the next corner. Also, these books has a wonderful and detailed illustrations by Chris Riddell himself.
It's pity that I couldn't find the Goth Girl and the Pirate Queen, book two and the half in this series. It wasn't translated in my country. As far as I understand, it's a short story and not full-fledged book (by the way, Goth Girl is relatively thin books, with the great amount of pictures). Oh, and one more thing - I really hope that one day we'll see adaptation of Goth Girl books in animation or live action form! It would be great! It鈥檚 such an artistic and clever books!
