    "Loved this series!"

    These are some early Brandon Sanderson and written somewhat for a younger audience. But don't let that fool you !! They are great stories and fun from beginning to end. We need Brandon to come back and write more of this series. Please!!

    "The truth about Smedley talents"

    In The Shattered Lens, Alcatraz Smedley reveals the truth about Smedley talents and discovers the truth about his parents. He also becomes a king, fights off librarian robots and helps save a kingdom. The Alcatraz series is a humorous read and listen, for children and parents alike, just don't let the librarians catch you reading or listening to these books.

    "Alcatraz Really Hate Those Librarians!!!"

    Fantastic 4th addition to this series.... I love the new characters that are added here, and i love how damn annoying Alcatraz could be.... He could be really annoying sometimes, when you start the book, don't worry regarding the chapters' numbers.. I had to go back to make sure i didn't skip a chapter by mistake, don't do that... just go ahead!!!

    Alcatraz is put in a new place with huge responsibilities, which was a great change, and gets to discover some truths regarding his family.... some are really funny!!!

    Get it and enjoy.

    "Still interesting, but . . ."

    This series has been interesting and I will get the final book in the series when it does become available - there is one thing, though - the humor seemed forced to me in this last book. It just appeared Sanderson is running out of ways to make the story funny and he is, well, forcing it. As I said, though, the main story is still quite interesting - I just ignored those parts that seemed force and enjoyed the story itself. If you decide to listen to this book, keep that in mind - also, read what other reviewers have to say; it may just be a case of humor mismatch-his humor in this book not matching my humor.

    If you are like me and are constantly looking for an interesting series to read and you have read the greats (Sanderson's Mistborn series, his Elantris Stand alone book, his Stormlight Archives series, Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, GRR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series) you might want to try Lois McMaster Bujolds' Miles Vorkosigan Series. I found it interesting - you might too. Please read other reviewers to see what they think. Everything isn't for everyone. It might or mightn't be for you. If you have enjoyed a series, please share it. Thanks.

    "Interesting story, ridiculously bad ending"
    What would have made Alcatraz Versus the Shattered Lens better?

    Great imagination and the potential of a great story but an ending that leaves all everything completely unanswered. Anyone can come up with ridiculous fantasy if you dont ultimately have to wrap up your lose ends. The last book made me feel like i wasted both my time and money!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brandon Sanderson again?

    NO.


    What about Ramon de Ocampo’s performance did you like?

    He was fantastic!
