At who is willing to sneak her in Alice opens a book and suddenly finds herself inside it – and the only The Forbidden PDFEPUB or way out is by conuering the dangerous creatures within.. I wanted to read this book the moment I found out about it It sounded like the perfect blend of fantasy magic and adventure and in a magical library no less with talking catsSo I jumped into it excitedly once I got my hands on a copy I expected to like it I wanted to like itAnd yet It took me than half the book to even get into it at all Until then it was a struggle It had all the right ingredients but it lacked something Spirit Excitement I don t even know Everything was there that should have worked but it just failed to grab me plodding on slowlyI couldn t put my finger on it for the longest time until I worked out at least one of my big problems with the book and not just this book there are middle grade books that work on multiple levels with subplots and secondary characters with their own lives with people who have histories people who have than one interest and then there are middle grade books which are simpler Much much simpler This is one of those or at least it was for me It s a book that has exactly one plodding slow plot It s not a tree with branches going off branches of secondary plot points or action outside the main narrative thread It s a post A straight line It s completely linear It s all about Alice going from point A to point B with some stops along the way but never ever branching off doing anything that isn t directly plot relevant There s not a single character she meets that is anything but a plot relevant prop there to either hinder her or help her or sometimes both at once I didn t really get the impression of any of those characters as real people with lives outside of Alice s plot whenever they weren t needed they were just put aside on a shelf waiting for the next time they d need to turn upThat s not to say that a completely linear children s adventure is a bad thing No it s not It s rarely as satisfying as a multi level adventure populated with real people with histories and own lives outside of their interactions with the protagonist but most adventures for young children are linear like this Except that I did get the feeling this was aimed mostly at younger teens not so much 8 year oldsI d be a lot forgiving if the pace had picked up faster though As I said above it took me than halfway into the book before it felt like the introductory parts were behind us and the real adventures started And the latter half of the book was well if not entirely satisfying then certainly faster paced and exciting even if it felt like a handful of separate little adventures strung together than a coherent narrativeI also had some problems with the magic in the book It s not explained very thoroughly somehow some people just have the ability to Read ie to read specific books that have magical creatures in them and then they can kill or bind those creatures and afterwards they ll have the magical powers of those creatures at their disposal and can use the creatures as slaves and I felt uite uncomfortable with the underlying evil of this whole system Yes it s a point in the book Readers sorcerers are cruel twisted evil people who think nothing of killing and hurting others because it s what their entire magical power relies on but considering how easily Alice takes to that and that s another thing it came to her entirely too easily and how she takes little convincing to use the powers she s obtained even while arguing it s not right and she d rather make the creatures submit than kill them outright well Alice was a reasonably okay protagonist otherwise resourceful and courageous but I do admit the entire system just doesn t sit well with meActual rating is like 25 maybe 225 the first half of the book would barely be a 2 the second half perhaps almost a three but I m trying to rate this considering how someone in the actual target group might like it I think an eight year old me would have liked it a little than current me although the eight year old me was also into considerably complex adventures so three stars it is ARC of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley in return for an honest review Thanks

The Forbidden Library

Late one night Alice Creighton hears her father having an argument with a fairy – a snarling bald beast with warts and needle like teethThe next day her father disappears never to retur. My uick reviewDjango Wexler is a friend I checked out The Forbidden Library as an audio book from my very unforbidden local library Midway through reading this Django suggested we get together for coffee I told him that all depended on how The Forbidden Library ended That our friendship hung in the balanceYes We are still friends We will go out for coffeeI found something in this book that has been missing in a lot of fantasy books I ve read lately A sense of wonder The protagonist is plucky in the best sense of that little used word She solves things herself She dares She thinks on her feet and comes up with surprising solutions While written for kids I think there is a lot here for any fantasy reader to enjoyThe audio book narrator does an excellent job with pacing and with the voices of the charactersThis would be a great audio book for families who have long school commutes or a long drive coming up Very listenable

Django Wexler À 2 Summary

N And Alice is sent to live with Master Geryon an uncle she never even knew existedGeryon has a dark mysterious library which is strictly off limits to Alice But after meeting a talking c. Thrown into a world that could only live in dreams or nightmares Alice is thrown into a world where Readers can travel into the world of books meet fight and capture creatures to harness these magical creatures abilities and find magical words This world has a deeply dark side with older ancient Readers using any means necessary to gather and steal each others books in order to gather this magic using their Reader apprentices to do their dirty work as pawns in a game that seem to have no end Alice is at a lost in this world not knowing she a Reader herself and with the sudden death of her father she must uickly learn to survive this new world she has found herself in find out the truth of what happen to her father and those who are known as Readers The world that Django Wexler created in Forbidden Library is vast and uniue with Readers entering the books they read that is very real and very dangerous I loved all the creatures that inhabited this world from the talking cat Ashes to The Swarm Like the Ancient Readers you can t trust whose on whose side or what they want Then there s Alice new to this world and stuck in the middle of it all Unraveling the truth through the story is Alice just a mere pawn to the Reader s whim or is there hope resting on Alice shoulders I truly liked and respected Alice at a young age she has alot to handle and she handles it very well with a level head and thinking things through alot that gets her out of many dangerous situations she placed in Never far from her thoughts is her father who she wonders what happen to and whose behind his death With the slow building mystery takes up alot of the book and this started off a tad slow for me when it finally hit it stride your craving from this book your zooming toward the endI completely loved The Forbidden Library and can t wait to see what s in store from this series

    A delightful little book perhaps a bit heavy on the dark atmosphere given that its target audience are mostly children but on the other hand the heroine is a feisty little thing that I'd like to follow through her further adventures And there are dragons The last sentence of the book was the best btw
