AVATAR

•January 27, 2010 • 1 Comment

I’ve come across quite a few excellent books and movies of late, but Avatar takes the cake. It is so long that I couldn’t give a decent summary, but it’s still the single most amazing movie I have ever seen. The story line, really cool, The special effects, awesome. I saw It in 3-D so it was about $2 better, and so worth it. Avatar is a great movie  for anyone. As for the age range, I’m not even sure I should’ve   seen it , but given a chance I would totally see it again.

The Golem’s Eye, by Jonathan Stroud

•January 23, 2010 • 1 Comment

This book, The Golem’s Eye by Jonathan Stroud, is one of the best books I have ever read. It is the second book in The Bartimaeus Trilogy so I can’t tell you much in case you want to read it but I can tell you a few things. The main show is Bartimaeus, a witty shapeshifting djinni. He is about 3,000 years old and young for a djinni. Nathaniel, his master who is 14 is stressed out over the war between America, and England, but still goin’ strong.  Kitty Jones, a capricious commoner, is part of the rebellion as well. Each has a tragic, witty, and exciting tale to unfold in this awesome new installment in the Bartimaeus  trilogy.

This is  a 5 star great read for anyone who likes fantasy (But read the first one first).

The Goblin Wood, by Hilari Bell

•January 22, 2010 • 4 Comments

This book is The Goblin Wood, by Hilari Bell. It is about a young girl named Makenna, who, after witnessing her mother’s cruel murder by her neighbors (whom she spent her life helping), goes temporarily crazy, ransacking their village and running off into a dense woods, known as the goblin wood. There she accidentally she disturbs a horde of goblins who follow her, ceaselessly  annoying her, until she traps one . By letting him go, she keeps the goblins in her debt. From then on she and the goblins launch small scale attacks upon the humans, until it becomes a full out war.  When a young knight named  Tobin tries to capture Makenna, she captures him and from then on their fates become inexplicably intertwined.

I think all in all this was an excellent book ( I give it 5 stars) but very intense; I would not recommend it for anyone under 9.
