Reply – The Underland Chronicles – Book 1: Gregor the Overlander – By Suzanne Collins

gregor the overlander.jpgHey Julia,

On your suggestion, I’ve read Gregor the Overlander and I am very glad that I did. At this point I don’t know if love it, but I certainly don’t hate it and I want to read further into the series.

REPLY – ALL SYSTEMS RED – BY MARTHA WELLS

Hey Robert,

all systems red

I’m glad you recommended this book even though I couldn’t find it as an audiobook it only took like 5 hours to read and I don’t even read that fast.

So Murderbot is definitely the most interesting character. That is interesting, not likable. Relateable but also not likable. Murderbot has an interesting perspective of being non-gendered as well as being a slave to humans. It is actually kinda funny that with the freedom it has it chooses to watch tv with. So basically Murderbot is a millennial.

The rest of the characters are just kinda there, a backdrop for Murderbot’s feelings. Most of the plot is also just kinda there, not all that interesting or important.

The world could be amazing, but we just get this snapshot. More hints than many real details and I hope book two really lets us sink our teeth in and learn about this world. Could it continue with Murderbot, maybe? I’m just not sure if they can really bring around the change in its attitude to make it have some kind of interesting plot. Could we have a new character and Murderbot be a secondary character? Definately.

All in all, I look forward to seeing where this series goes.

 

Jared

Reply: Ranger’s Apprentice Series – Book 1: Ruins of Gorlan – By John Flanagan

91yg6kZecWL9Hi Robert,

Ok Game of Thrones isn’t really my thing, I don’t usually enjoy that much graphic content. At least from what I’ve seen of the TV series. But A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms seems to be the kinda thing I might like. Even if I don’t read the books, you can still review the A Song of Fire and Ice Series.

Based on your review I went ahead and read the Ruins of Gorlan of the Ranger’s Apprentice Series. I started reading about 2 weeks ago and now I’m done book 12 if that gives you any hints of how I have liked it. But now onto the actual reply.

Please note I have added a SPOILERS disclaimer, in order to provide a more in depth look at the book. If you have not read this book I would recommend you do so before continuing on.

Reply: Alcatraz Series – Book 1: Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians – By Brandon Sanderson

Hey Jared,

Alcatraz Versus the Evil LibrariansOur first reply posts. You working on Rangers Apprentice, me working on Alcatraz.  It will never be the same again……..But we were lame before and now we’re awesome.

Ok, reading Alcatraz might have changed me as a writer……or broke me. I am broken.

I agree with your recommendation of 5th grade/10 years old range. I would have liked to have found this in 2nd or 3rd grade personally because I jumped straight to Dragonlance for lack of good books in between.

On a serious note, there will be many spoilers beyond this point. For readers with a weak literary constitution, please do not read any further.

You have been warned.
