Ophelia a novel by Lisa Klein

Ophelia is a marvelous re-telling of Shakespeare's tragic romance, Hamlet. I don't like romance, but there isn't that much. The plot and excitement is what I like about, the plot is as thick as a forest of kudzu. Its really tragic near then end, where Ophelia fleds to a convent in France and tries to forget her life. After all she's been through.... its terribly tragic, which is one of the reasons why I don't like Shakespeare's writing. He likes tragedy, and I don't. I'm more of the "Happily Ever After" fairy-tale person, because if the characters aren't happy, then I'm not happy. The ending is somewhat "happy" in a way. You'll just have to read the book to understand what I mean.

Since this is my first time reading about Hamlet, the girl who plays Ophelila on this book cover will always be my picture of Ophelia. If you do a Google Image search on "Ophelia" then you'll get these many illustrations of Ophelia, but none of them are right.

Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke

23 December 2008

I'm still reading Inkdeath, but so far its incredible. Fenoglio the author is losing control of his story, Mo is becoming more and more like the Bluejay, Dustfinger is dead, Farid and Meggie are in love, Roxane is in pain, Resa is carrying a second child, The Adderhead is still immortal, The Milksop is becoming rich, and Orpheous is becoming even more rich with laods of silver. Violente is planning to overthrow her father, Jacopo is looking more and more like his father, Cosimo the Fair, and Farid needs Orpheous to write Dustfinger back from the White Women. Apparently, a whole lot is going on because this is the last book to the Inkheart Trilogy. The plot thickens with twists and ties, I can't put the darn book down. The book Inkheart became a movie, but I haven't watched this, because I hate it when movie producers try to imitate and try to create the story again on film, because it ruins how I imagined the story in my head. Well, enjoy


HOLY COW! ok, theres this like disfigured love triangle going on! Meggie sort of doesn't like Farid that much, and Doria likes Meggie, but Farid still likes Meggie. !!!!!!!!!

Ok, I finished it. About 600 pages, and really nice. Apparently, Meggie chooses Doria and leaves Farid. I think that I like Doria better. The end of the story is the most thrilling part, where everything must be done in a short period of time. Mo has to destroy the White Book, or the Book that gives the Adderhead immortality, or else the White Women (daughters of Death) will take him and his daughter Meggie. 2 lives for the price of 1.

Notice that this picture in the middle of the cover is shaped like a skull

Michael Buckley and the Grimm sisters

13 December 2008

How would you like it if everyone of your favorate fairy-tale characters hated you, excpet a few? Thats what its like for The Grimm sisters and their grandmother, Relda. The Brothers Grimm brought all the fairy-tale characters to Fairyport Landing, where the were trapped by a magical spell that blocks them inside. The Scarlet Hand, a group of Everafters that want to dominate the world, destroy and create weird and scary mysteries, and the Grimm Sisters have to solve them, after all, they ARE detectives.

The characters in the book are amazing, my favorate is Puck the Trickster King. He's an imature everafter that comes up with the most gruesome pranks to play on Sabrina and Daphne Grimm, like glueing Sabrina's head to a basketball and stuffing Sabrina's pillow with cow manure. How diaboilical. The whole series is amazing so far, Michael Buckley ROCKS

Margaret Perterson Haddix- Found

05 December 2008

It doesn't matter if your a boy or a girl, Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix is for everyone. One day, Angela DePre is on her first day as an airport attendant. When she see's that there isn't a plane at the gate, Monique (her boss) tries to find out what happens. Angela waits at the gate for the passengers to come off when the plane finally arrives, but nobody comes out. So Angela checks inside the plane, only to find 36 seats filled with babies. Was the plane a part of a major baby-smuggling ring, as the FBI says, or is it something even bigger that nobody would ever guess in this century. FOUND isn't one of those freaky freak stories, more like a super-modern story. Technology, babies, children, and JB......
Margaret has also written the Shadow Children series, with 7 books in all. Among the Hidden is the first one, and it also has to do with a child that isn't supposed to be there. the government says that each family should only have one child so that there wouldn't be a food shortage. But one family has an illegal child, one more than the should have......Will the government get involved, or will the child live?

Another Artemis Fowl post

03 December 2008

Artemis Fowl is one of my all-time favorate books with Harry Potter. Artemis's genius is hilarious and super cool. Its one of those action/fantasy stories, where Artemis is a 14 year old super-genius who is involved with the LEP and the fairy people underground. the technology used by the LEP is extremely advanced, almost all due to Foaly, a centuar that invented handy devices and computer technology.

Holly Short is a pretty fairy who's great-great-great-great-great etc... grandfather was Cupid. Holly is one of the only fairy people (with Foaly and others) who are in contact with Artemis and joins him in these AWESOME adventures. The most recent book published is Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox. Check my previous post on Artemis Fowl for the whole series. I still haven't gotten hold of the Artemis Fowl Graphic Novel, its one of those comic books. But I don't like the cartoons, because I always have a different image of Artemis in my mind, and the Artemis in the cartoons look nothing like what I have in mind. If your like me, then don't read the Graphic Novel (you can see why I chose that certain image above). I have a picture that does resemble my veiw of Artemis, look below
