The Invention of Hugo Cabret

The Invention of Hugo Cabret is an awesome book. I would personally enjoy a book with a bit more words although the illustrations are awesome. Don't let a few parts deceive you. Even though the book is thick, three quarters of that is pictures, and the pages are thick too. Then, even though some might say that this book is for a low age group, I beg to differ. It is actually quite sophisticated, and although third graders would be able to understand the pictures, the text is essential to the plot. I just have to give a tip; try to finish this book in one day, and the end is very rewarding (Just don't look ahead). So if you are looking for a fast read and a peculiarly interesting story, The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a perfect read.

Tunnels is a truly captivating book full of surprises and the unexpected around every corner. Although this book is chocked-full of adventure and discovery, you soon learn that the discovery isn't always what you wanted. Some of the tragedy and "realistic" fiction really completes the captivating story. You travel into the bowels of the Earth along side Will, trailing him like the mystery which shrouds Will's passage (of course the Styx are also getting in the way of Will as he descends into a fanciful city in the center of the earth). This story is then tied up with

I'll equip my Sword of Suffering with its healing and magic restoring augmentations because Epic is an awesome book. It involves a world where the government and economy are dependent on a mysterious game created by the forefathers of the agricultural community. What's cool is that the 'settlers' are implied they are from earth, but they might not be. Anyhow this somewhat apocalyptic book masterfully combines fantasy with realistic fiction, and through in a twist of horror.

Marley and Me

This Christmas Day, December 25th that is, be sure to check out the film version the best selling domestic dog documentary Marley and Me. The book was great and hopefully so will the movie!

Charlie Bone and the Shadow

Charlie Bone and the Shadow was an amazing book. It was the next book in the Charlie Bone series. If you haven't already read this series by Jenny Nimmo, you have to. This book did seem to be a bit short, but it ended with such suspense! Charlie Bone and the Shadow did include a great mix of tragedy, cliff-hangers, and action. There were surprises on every page, and the on-going theme of the picture traveler carries on throughout the detailed, and perilous plot of this awesome book.
