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.

    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.

    "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!

    "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.

    "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... :)

    "Good Clean Fun from B.Sanderson, again!"

    Alcatraz and two evil librarians deliver humor and suspense all with the requisite portion of the fantastic. Episode II is equal to its predecessor, so if you liked it, you’ll like this one.

    "Sanderson's Genius"

    ***(SPOILERS)***

    I've grown to love the reader more and more over the last two books.
    The way he narrates the death scene at the end of the book (poor Bastille) is amazing. The writing of that scene was amazing as well. Heck, even Sanderson himself couldn't have written a better ending death scene.

    The psychological and philosophical exercise you get reading this book is amazing and probably the most clever thing Sanderson has ever written into his books, and that's saying something coming from my perspective.

    An absolute, all-around 5 out of 5.

    "Just cute books, light and fun to read"

    I liked this one more than the first! I enjoyed where it went (physically and conceptually) and it's fun getting to know these characters more. I like the depth and how we're slowing learning some things about this world and magic system. It's not overwhelming and it also doesn't feel like I'm not learning things fast enough. Very cute!

    "Read book one? Well read this book 2! See what I did there ha"

    If you are looking at this message that means you already read the first book, meaning you already know you are going to continue on with books 2,3,4,5 and so on. Don't kid your self now. This book was just as good as the first and did not disappoint. This trilogy is well done and very entertaining to listen/read. The narration performance is amazing. They chosen the right guy for this set and I do plan on continuing to listen to them all by Ramon. He really brings these books to live! Brandon why oh why must Bastille D-.....

    -The End

    "Wonderful book. Love this series."

    Great story with a well planned twist ending. Again I love how Brandon is able to tell an entertaining story while mocking the craft of writing and do it in a way that hurts my cheeks as I smile through the entire story.
