THAT'S LIBRARIAN TALK The five stars are for 11-13 year olds. Drop a star overall for adults. I think 13 year olds will love this. It is entertain..Show More »ing, funny and different. I say different, but it also reminded me of an older Wimpy Kid. The idea of an alternative world and this world being secretly run by librarians is great. I normal don't like it when the author talks to the audience, but it worked very well for this book.
CANICEDE I do think books like this will help turn more kids into readers. I also love the way they learn without lectures, about how to open your mind and not to believe things because everyone else does.
EDIBLE EDDINGS Once again I am amazed in Brandon Sanderson and his ability to dream up new and different magic worlds. Lots of writers, come up with one good universe and build their whole career around it, while BS comes up with totally different magic systems for every book or series.
LIE BRARIANS Everything you think you know is a lie. Geography, physics, math, science, history, etc.. are all lies, feed to you by librarians. ..Show More »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.
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 ..Show More »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!!!
