Alcatraz Smedry claims that he "is not a nice person" and a liar. His world is divided into the Hushlands, which resembles our world, and the Free Kingdoms, where magic rules and Science, not so much. He grew up as an orphan in the Hushlands. Having reached age thirteen, he has received his inheritance from his parents, a bag of sand. This begins an intricately plotted romp through both lands. It is just fun.
1) just because something seems bad, maybe what gives an advantage later.
2) do not judge a book by it's cover. Well actually you can, because this book has a great cover on it and fits the story well (Isaac Stewarts great work). Maybe it should be do not judge a cub's roar by the bears.
3) sometime the person you do not trust can become one of the most interesting characters in a series...well at least for this book. Australia was good for book two, and there are a lot more additions to this book, but Australia is missing.
4) your parents might not be so bad. But if they are, then feeling sorry is very justifiable.
5) Learning to dance might save your life.
I have no idea why, but I just enjoy "Brandon Sanderson" books. I have other authors that I like, but they are just not as evil as he is.
And if others and myself have no said it enough, this book is awesome. So much that you should start with this book first...that may change when I hit book four. But you might as well get the others if you have not. And to help out, you should pick up enough for Christmas Presents to give to the rest of the family. And if you are in some way related to me and get a present that looks a lot like the shape of a book, I can assure you it is not. It is a collection of drawings with words place in-between because the only way to make a book better is to add Graphic in front of it and call it a novel just to throw you off.
I for one have been impressed with Hayley and if you doubt me buy the book and turn to page 277. It's that just awesome and screams this is the hero of the book. 271 was good also, but 277 says pick up book four.
sounds like good advice and so on to #4 which has been sitting on the shelf all this time waiting to be read.
This review goes in line with that of the Alcatraz series, more specifically the attitude of a Smedry. You see, they are trouble makers, and are prone to getting themselves into life threatening situations. They have an uncharacteristic attitude when dealing with any situation. The more danger, the more excited they are. Through thick and thin, Smedry's are rarely to be found with a sour mood. They are bubbly, charismatic, bold, audacious, and have a knack for getting themselves into trouble. Wait, I said that did I not? Gack! You see, I imitating a number of characters found in this book. Granpa Smedry, Alcatraz, talking dinosaurs. Yes, you read correctly, talking dinosaurs with a British accent, and as we know, those Brits are refined, calm, and well-mannered; dinosaurs are no exception! They really know how to cause trouble for Librarians, like eating the entire C section of the Science Fiction shelf and moving six books out of their proper places. Okay, so maybe they are useless as Bastille said... The only thing worse than talking dinosaurs are talking rocks, but I tell you, the dinosaurs are a treat! To round off this paragraph, I leave you this quote from Grandpa Smedry if you think I am making any of this up:
I am a Smedry, and we do ridiculous, unexpected, eccentric things like this all the time.
The Alcatraz series is a tremendously fun read. My friend that recommended Mistorn and Elantris did not bother giving these books a shot because of their young adult emphasis, despite being a lover of Sanderson's work. Aspiring Asimovs, what a horrible reason! Lots of fun, many laugh out loud moments, tons of humor and wit, with a great story to boot! The books are written from the first person perspective of Alcatraz Smedry, written as a biography of how he became the hero of the Free Kingdom and to dispel the many myths about how it happened. The books are much shorter than all of Sanderson's other works, easily read in two or three days, and are extremely enjoyable. I cannot recommend these books enough!
Unfortunately Scholastic decided to not sign Sanderson for the fifth and final book. According to his assistant via Twitter, Sanderson will finish the series, but it's still a few years out, which is a shame. When I found out about this, I shook my fist at Scholastic and demanded they be burned alive with the Firebringer's Lens. You'll have to read the books to know what that's about ;)
