No, I haven't read it, but the person on the front cover reminds me of Luke Skywalker. heehee
Never heard of it? What's it about?
Is it funny?
LAWKS A MERCY! I love this series -I read them all several years ago, and they were the first series my younger brother read on his own - I love them. Freaking love Halt xD
I still need to read this book!
I didn't particularly like the series. 1) Writing quality. Blech. Almost a nightmare. 2) Originality. Lack thereof. Rangers were stolen from Lord of the Rings. Stolen. :P That much irked me. Various cultures in later books are all based off of real-world, Middle-Ages cultures such as the Vikings, Arabians, Angles, etc.3) Cussing. There's a lot of it in later books.4) There is pretty much zero depth. The characters are always the same, and they always come out conveniently unscathed. :P And not much meaningfulness to it either...Other than that, the dialogue was clever and I like the way Flanagan wrote it, and the plot is fairly good. :) Not to spoil your love or anything XD Glad you like it! :D
I can't say how much I LOVE Ranger's Apprentice books...the end.:)
I read the first book and, while it *was* interesting, it didn't grab me enough to prompt me to pick up the other books. I agree with what Jake said, in that true depth was lacking -- both in characterization and otherwise.
These are awesome books. So much fun!
I love these books. I'm a little frustrated with John Flanagan because he just keeps writing them, and in my opinion he should have wrapped it up way before book 10, or whatever, but I really enjoy them! I actually own them up to book 6. I love the fact that they're a quick read, but they're totally worth it!
