Publisher's Summary

Brandon Sanderson won instant acclaim with young listeners for the first volume of his humorous and action-packed Alcatraz series, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians. In his second adventure, Alcatraz has his hands full with a Scrivener’s Bone - a half-human, half-machine assassin - pursuing him. And if that’s not enough, Alcatraz receives word that his father is in mortal danger. Now it’s up to Alcatraz and a quirky band of his relatives to mount a daring rescue.

    "The sequel was also quite good!"

    I like Sanderson, but I did not think he could be as good in YA as he is in his other works. I was wrong - very wrong. If you are like me and did not think he would be as good, believe me, you, too, might be very wrong. Good job Brandon! Keep 'em coming!

    "Best "Biography" Ever!!!"

    This is the most entertaining "biography" I have ever red!

    To those in the hush lands: This fiction is soooo funny and good, Brandon Sanderson is a gifted and a great author, and his fantasy books are big and fat. Alcatraz gets used to his powers and to his abilities, and get introduced to new characters, which most of them are really funny.. Just wait until you get introduced to the "List"!!!

    To the 3 Kingdoms:
    This biography of Alcatraz was an eye opener, you get to know so much about your hero and who he really is, and how he dealt with all those evil librarians..

    P.S. You will laugh a lot... so avoid drinks and food while listening to it... :)

    "Funny, exciting and twisted"
    Any additional comments?

    Brandon Sanderson has become one of my favorite authors since he took on the daunting task of completing the wheel of time series started by Robert Jordan. I haven't read another author with so many different original ideas on the use or sources of magical type powers and abilities. He is a master craftsman in the ways of imagination.

    Ramon de Ocampo does an outstanding job bringing each of the characters to life. The book jumps from drama to commentary and back to drama at every turn, but he handled it expertly.

    Paid reviewers, after two weeks get 4-8 votes and have that power to strike unhelpful against others. Check their history! Your money!

    Story
    "Douglas Adams, Starter Kit"

    LIE BRARIANS
    Everything you think you know is a lie. Geography, physics, math, science, history, etc.. are all lies, feed to you by librarians. They control the information, and they are using it to take over the world. You are a HUSH LANDER and you probably don't even know about the FREE LANDS. Did you know that there is an ocean between Europe and Asia?

    ALCATRAZ
    The characters in this book have names like ALCATRAZ, BASTILLE, AUSTRALIA, AND LEAVENWORTH. These characters often have special talents like, Breaking things, always arriving late, getting lost or waking up ugly. Come to think of it, I have some of these talents.

    I AM A LIAR
    This book is more about the humor than the story. There are several burst out loud moments. While I thought it was funny, I prefer something with a plot, but Douglas Adam fans and younger listeners may love this. I will not continue the series, but recommend it highly to those who love humorous books.

    OCAMPO
    The narrator does an excellent job. In an audio book, the narrator is very important and even more so in a funny book. Not everyone can get the timing right. To be a good narrator for a funny book, you almost have to be a comedian yourself. What is written is important, but how it is read can be even more important.

    "Such a sad ending, cruel cruel world!"

    The ending is heartbreaking. Do not skip to the end of the book too early.

    "Great listen for kids and parents!"
    What does Ramon De Ocampo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    We love each of his character voices. He articulates well and seems to "get" the humor of the author without being over the top. Time flies on long car trips while the whole family listens to Ramon. We've heard the first two books 3 times over. It's time to buy book 3 now! We can't wait!

    "boys loved it"

    We listened to books 1 and 2 in this series on a long summer road trip. boys were laughing, fully engaged and attentive. we had to wait for good stopping points before they would take stretch break. they are 11 years old and love it when the author breaks the 3rd wall.
