The Thief Lord Juvenile Book The Thief Lord

Cornelia Funke

3 stars.

Describe the book: The Thief Lord is a story of two children who ran away to the streets of Venice and are being supported by a young boy who calls himself the thief lord. The children take a job to steal an item and find out that the thief is rich and steals from his father and they find out they are stealing a part for a magical carousel that changes your age.

What did you think: I really like this book for its well developed characters and how it shows the struggles of both the rich and the poor. My favorite part is when you find out that Scipio(the thief lord) is a rich boy trying to get out of his pampered life and the children reject him, but he still follows them because they are his true friends and he cant leave them

Who would you recommend it to: science-fiction lovers

Dalibor Talajic

4 stars.

Describe the book: Deadpool is unique because he knows he's in a book. Until now he's no motive to do anything of it. So sick of being controlled he sets to kill the idea of heros. In this quest he causes many other Deadpools to awaken,one rebels and kills him after he killed the other Deadpools. But soon after he finds out that its all in his head tearing himself apart.

What did you think: This is one of my favorite books because it is different from every other book I have read. Every character in the book is another part of his personality,some are pretty and some not so much. But in the end he sacrifices both the good and the bad to clean his sleight of life and start over. Showing the internal conflict of good and evil. I love it

Who would you recommend it to: critical thinkers and science-fiction lovers

Gossamer Juvenile Book Gossamer

lois lowary

3 stars.

Describe the book: Its about these two characters who collect fragments for dreams and can give them to people and animals. One character is called thin elderly and the other is called the littlest. Thin elderly is the littlest's mentor to become a dream giver.

What did you think: My favorite part is probably when this boy named john told a story about another boy to the littlest and thin elderly. He told them this boy was abused and his father made him eat dog food because of the way he acted around the house. In the end the littlest and thin elderly realized he was talking about himself. It made me sad to hear about it.

Who would you recommend it to: I recommend this book for people who like fiction.

Angel Dust Apocalypse Angel Dust Apocalypse

Jeremy Robert Johnson

3 stars.

Describe the book: This short story anthology has a variety of settings, from 15 minutes into the future to post-apocalyptic. Jeremy Robert Johnson explores themes of self-discovery, sacrifice, ethics and the very essence of what makes us human. The characters share senses of longing and incompleteness that they go to extreme measures to quell, with some tragic ends

What did you think: It took me a while to fully acclimate myself to just how off the beaten track this anthology is. Every story is engrossing and completely original. Experimental poetry breaks up traditional narrative style stories to stave off boredom. The author finds a perfect balance of description and prompting imagination. Saturn's Game was especially haunting

Who would you recommend it to: fans of bizarre fiction

Describe the book: A sink ships which carries a family's whole living, their zoo animals and themselves.He fortunately made it off on a raft but.... there was few animals on that raft. He sails across the Atlantic and has to survive and doing that with wild animals on your water craft is not so easy.

What did you think: I love the journey between the tiger and the boy.He had to over come fear and pressure. I really do love the ending most of all when reality kicks in and it was found out.

Who would you recommend it to: Individuals who love fantasy and drama as well.

There was one place where I could find out who I was and what I was going to become.
And that was the public library.
