Alcatraz is really good at rambling. And he's not a very good author. Or just maybe not a very nice person. He talks about all the things an author shouldn't do, and then proceeds to do all of them.Quentin, whose Talent is saying things that don't make sense, says "wasing not of wasing is," and I wo...

Some twisted MG Contemporary Fantasy fun. A hero with an incredible talent...for breaking things. A life-or-death mission...to rescue a bag of sand. A fearsome threat from a powerful secret network...the evil Librarians. Alcatraz Smedry doesn't seem destined for anything but disaster. On his 13...

The Alcatraz books are the only Brandon Sanderson books I haven't read, and that's because they aren't available as ebooks (yet). They are available as brilliantly performed audio books however, and I grabbed them before we left on our family vaca/road trip. I thought they'd be a good choice for the...

the whole idea is great. many times we are being told of all kinds of things, and we take them for granted. we never dare question all those 'facts' and 'belifes'. this book, this particular book, made me question and wonder. in the past months since i read it i found myself over and over in a situa...

I'm shelving this as "fantasy" because, well... I don't want to call the attention of the Librarians down upon my head. They're mean and will probably try to kill me for letting the cat out of the bag. This book was banned, and for good reason. Hopefully, they'll just look at the shelf tags, and not...

I really wanted to like this book. I liked the premise, and it sounded fun.And I suppose that the plot, or the little there was of it, wasn't bad. It could even have been fun. It was certainly original enough (for the genre, where there is little that is truly original these days), and sometimes, ju...

The first disappointing read I have encountered from Sanderson, I found this to be poorly written, poorly characterized, and taking place in a poorly thought-out and poorly designed world. I think I just am completely lacking in the facet of humour that would make this book enjoyable.For me, It was...

I wasn't really sure how to rate this one. It was interesting, though I was a little uncomfortable with the idea of a cabal of evil librarians. Plus, I couldn't shake the feeling I was picking up on subtext from Sanderson, though I doubt it was really there. I've read a bunch of his other books and...

This is supposed to be a funny, quirky, zany little fantasy series... I could see what Sanderson was going for, but I just didn't find it all that amusing. The little shout-outs to literary works was cute, but that's as far as my amusement went.I think that I must be too old, or the wrong gender, ...
