Ready Player One Book Review


By: Jude. S


On March 29, 2018 the movie Ready Player One will be in theaters. It is based on a book written by Ernest Cline. The book takes place in Columbus, Ohio following a boy named Wade Watts who lives in the stacks (stacked up RV’s in a wood construction). He spends all his time in the OASIS which is a on

line VR world with endless possibilities: school, gaming, talking to friends, you name it. The creator of this world, James Halliday, has just passed away. He left a video recording that made the world go crazy. It said that he has hidden easter egg within the OASIS and whoever finds them owns the game and inherits his fortune. Wade Watts is an admirer of James and has read, watched, and played everything played in James’s almanac which is mostly from the 80’s. Wade’s quest is to find the easter eggs through mind puzzling riddles and challenges  before anybody else. The book is filled with action, secrecy, and the intensity for the hunt of the eggs.  When I read this book I could not put it down. Anybody who loves video games or love the 80’s should read it. When I read this book I think of the possibilities and the future yet to come.

Spectacular Summoner Series

Do you love fantasy books full of action, adventure, and magic?  If so, you should read The Summoner Series, by Taran Matharu.  This series, so far, is a trilogy (a series of only three books), featuring The Novice, The Inquisition, and The Battlemage.  I recently finished The Battlemage, and I cannot wait for the next book to be released.  Anyways, enough rambling, here is a little background information about the series (with no spoilers).

Firstly, all of the basic information in The Summoner Series: the setting, characters, storyline, etcetera.  The story is about a boy named Fletcher, who was abandoned by his parents as a baby. He was left in front of the gates of a city called Pelt.  Eventually, when Fletcher was older, there was a festival where a group of travelling merchants occupied the city of Pelt.  Fletcher bought a strange book that was all about demon mythology, and he accidentally…  The only other thing that I can say without spoiling the series is that the story takes place in the Medieval Times (buildings were made out of stone, territories were divided into villages, and most people were pheasants).  If you want to know more, read the series, it is well worth it!

Now, my opinion on The Summoner Series.  Personally, I love the series so much. In fact, The Summoner Series is one of my favorite book series of all time.  One thing that I especially love is how descriptive the author is during action/fighting scenes.  During these scenes, the author uses words that make the writing easier to imagine.  However, there is only one thing that I kind of dislike about the series, the cliffhangers.  At the end of each book, the author leaves each book on a cliffhanger, but this does make me even more anxious for the next book to be released.  If I had to rate The Summoner Series, I give it five stars.

All in all, you should definitely read The Summoner Series.  From the amazing storyline to the very descriptive action scenes, The Summoner Series is a great book series to read.  The occasional cliffhangers will have you dying to read more.  So, if you are looking for a great read, you should check out The Summoner Series, by Taran Matharu.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Book Review

Recently I have read Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of the Summer, and I am currently reading book two in this series called The Hammer of Thor. I really recommend these books for many reasons. Two main reasons are for its humor and very interesting information about Norse gods.

This book was written by Rick Riordan who is one of my favorite authors. This book is very funny and entertaining. It is based around Norse Gods and their children. Some Norse Gods you might know are Loki and Thor. Even if you do not enjoy Norse gods or any other gods you might still really like the humor in these books.

I also loved a lot of the characters characteristics in these books. Like Magnus’s strong but silly character and Jack’s always silly character. My personal favorite character is Hearthstone. I really like his very smart, unique, and silly personality. 

I highly recommend you to at least try these books even if they do not sound like you would like them. When I first heard of the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan I did not want to read them, then my sister got me to read them and I instantly loved them because of their humor. Most of his books are really humorous, just like Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, so even if any of the things in these books do not sound interesting at least give them a try.

So Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard is a one of my favorite books. If you like Norse gods or any type of gods or humor you should definitely try the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. Even if you do not like humor or any type of gods you should still at least try the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series.

Eragon Book Review

A good book series can be hard to find nowadays. If you’re like me and struggle to find a good book, fear no more; I have a book that will keep you on your toes wondering what’s next.

That book is called Eragon and it’s written by Christopher Paolini. It’s about a boy named Eragon, who thinks he is nothing but a poor farm boy in the rural town of Carvahall living with his uncle Garrow and cousin Roran. While he was hunting one day he stumbles upon a smooth blue stone and takes it home, planning on selling it later to get some meat for his family. When the blue stone provides Eragon with a baby dragon, he realizes he’s in for more than he bargained. This baby dragon has just thrown Eragon into a world he wasn’t prepared for.

Eragon’s adventure just doesn’t end after one book; it has three more books after it! Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance are also part of Eragon’s adventure. I’m currently on Brisingr, and let me say that the previous book, Eldest, has so many plot twists! Christopher Paolini will keep you on the edge of your seat reading this series.



The Giver

The Giver is a great book about a community with complete sameness. Each citizen is assigned a spouse, two children a boy and a girl, and a job. Each child is put into their age group for their school classes and volunteer work, until you become a twelve. When you become a twelve everyone is divided into their jobs for training based on the way you spent your volunteer hours. Jonas, the main character is not assigned a job during the ceremony of twelve. In his his year, Jonas ends up being selected. Jonas is selected to be the keeper of the memories. The keeper of the memories collects all of the memories, good and bad and keeps them away from all of the other citizens. One day Jonas comes up with a plan to release all of the memories so everyone could feel them. So Jonas goes outside of the community to try and find elsewhere. With limited food and trying to keep an infant baby named Gabriel safe, will Jonas be able to make it elsewhere and keep them both alive? The Giver is a very enjoyable book full of feeling and  adventure, and is definitely worth reading.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

picsart_10-27-10-26-17I have been reading Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lighting Thief by Rick Riordan. It is based on Greek mythology and is packed with action and adventure. The main character is Percy Jackson. The setting is in Camp Half-Blood, which is located on Long Island, New York.

Percy Jackson finds out something big about him. Something that explains why he has dyslexia and ADHD and all the unusual things that has happened to him in the past. He is a demigod. A demigod is a half human and half God. Being a demigod isn’t exactly easy for Percy either. He gets chased by mythological monsters and has been either kicked out or blown up his schools.

Percy goes to this place called Camp Half-Blood. Camp Half-Blood is the only safe place in the world for people like Percy, demigods. When he got there, he gets claimed by his godly parent, which happens to be Poseidon god of the seas. Claimed is when a god gives someone some sort of sign saying who their son or daughter is. After Percy gets claimed, he soon gets granted a quest to retreve Zeus’s lightning bolt before the summer solstice. Zeus’s lightning bolt has been stolen and he thinks that Percy has stolen it because he is the son of Poseidon. A quest is when a demigod gets chosen by the Oracle to out of camp and do favors of errands for the gods. Percy wasn’t going on this quest alone, he is allowed to bring two companions with him. He chose to bring Annabeth Chase, a daughter of Athena and Grover Underwood, a satyr(half man half goat). Together they took off on a dangerous quest trying to save the world from chaos.

 I would love to tell you more about the story in more detail, but you’ll have to read the book yourself. I really hope that my book review has made you want to read the book. I thought that this was an amazing book and I loved every single page. You should really check it out too.

Unwind Series book review

imagesI have been reading the Unwind book series lately. This book is by Neal Shusterman. There are  a lot of surprising twists and turns. The book starts out in a setting in Ohio. The book follows three main people, Conner a boy who has anger issues and gets into a lot of fights, Risa a girl who has no parents and is a ward of state, and Levi a tithe who is someone who wants to be unwound because its part of his religion.

All three of these people are going to be unwound. Unwound is when you have either been a bad kid, there is no money for you such has your parents have no money or the state ward, or your a tithe then its your religion. Unwinding is when basically your parent or guardian don’t want you anymore.  What unwinding does is it puts your body in the divided state. The harvesters take piece by piece of your body apart, and give it to someone who needs it. For example if you have bad teeth you can get new ones from an unwind.

Conner just found at he is going to be unwinded, because he gets in a lot of fights. Once he finds out he is getting unwinded, he was really mad, so he is going to run away. Conner is going AWOL, this is illegal. The night he runs away little does he know he’s going to be traveling in a group  of three.

Risa is a ward of the state, the orphanage is having budget cuts so she will be  unwinded.  Risa plans on kicking AWOL. She boards a bus ready to be unwinded little does she know that there will be a crash with the AWOL Connor. Just like Connor little does he know she will be traveling  in a group of three.

Levi Calder is just your ordinary tithe.  It’s been part of his religion to be unwinded  and he will be when he turns age 13 he’s known it since he was a little boy. Levi’s ready for it though he’s excited he wants to be unwinded. Just like Connor and Risa though little does he know he’ll be traveling in a group with three very soon.

Connor is on the run from the cops he runs across the highway. Risa is on a bus ready to be unwinded. Levi is in the car heading to be tithed. Somehow though they’re all on the same highway. As Connor runs across the highway he sees Levi in the car heading to be tithed, he rescues Levi. Risa’s bus crashes she runs out the emergency exit. All three of them meet for the first time in the woods. They are now in a group of three.

I would love to tell you more, But you’ll just have to read the book to find out. I hope you give this book a chance. This is a very good book with lots of ups and downs and it’s good for anybody who loves books like the hunger games,because it’s about a collapsing society because of laws. Thanks for listening.

Tunnels series Book Review

5160arzmcdl-_sx327_bo1204203200_I have read the first two books in The series Tunnels. They are Tunnels and Deeper. I’m going to tell you what the series has been like so far. The series is about a boy named Will whose dad is a archaeologist.  Will helps his dad dig and sometimes digs tunnels by himself. Will only has one friend whose name is Chester. Will brings Chester to one of his digs(A tunnel), he dug by himself.

Around the same time Mr. Burrows Will’s dad starts noticing pale people walking around who wear long coats , sunglasses and hats. Mr.Burrows Decides to follow one but the man goes into an ally and when Mr.Burrows goes in the man has disappeared. After Will goes home he sees that his parents are arguing. After the argument Will’s dad goes down to the cellar and doesn’t come back. Later Will and Chester are walking home from school when they are chased by one of the pale people they manage to get away but they still wondered who the person was. Will decides to look for his dad and eventually goes down to the cellar to look for clues to where he could have gone. He ends up finding a tunnel his dad dug under the stairs. When Will goes to search it he sees that it has been sealed up. Will decides to go down the tunnel with Chester. They find that it was sealed up. After digging through The tunnel they find an underground city.

The rest of the books I have read so far have been about Will and Chester looking for Will’s dad and hiding from the Styx a underground cult that doesn’t like people who live above ground. That’s all I can tell you without spoiling anything. So far it has been an very exciting book series and I look forward to reading more. You can find the whole book series in the school library so you don’t have to worry about only being able to find the first books. I recommend reading them.
