Like a child or a family member i was so emotionally invested in this trilogy, i have to love it, regardless of how disappointed i may be deep down. as a SUPER harry potter fan, it has been hard to find anything that could fill the void, the hunger games did that, and then some... I feel like fans could have created a better 3rd book, and in a perfect world we could all just give susan collins a redo! i mean everybody messes up right? i am not so much disappointed in the ending as i am in the story leading up to the ending... it felt like the first chapter all the way through and then WHAM its over.... all of that being said, i enjoyed this trilogy more than words can describe! The characters feel like friends and the story is so unique and moving and thought-provoking, regardless of the lackluster final book, this will be a favorite of mine for all time!!!
This was the first fantasy book i have ever read... that being said, i may be slightly biased because the first time you enter the world of fantasy your life is changed forever! However i just finished listening to this book again as an adult and it was just as great as i remember... sometimes i would stop and laugh at myself for reading about talking wolves, but that goes along with the fantasy genre i guess. I love the characters in this book, and i also love the daringness of Clement-Davies to "go there"... this is not a cookie cutter everyone lives happily ever after read... far from it! If you are looking for something different then give it a try! its an easy read, and you won't regret it!
almost there but not quite... great setup, great ideas, just not the sparkle that i needed... that extra something that makes it special and different from the countless other magician books... Bartimaeus is hysterical though, yet that adds more disappointment when i think about the potential lost with a lackluster story. i will finish the series, but am not in a hurry, which as an obsessive reader, says a lot! I am crossing my fingers that the story gets better as the books progress but am not holding my breath.
