Pet Discussion #4

December's Pet Discussion: Now that you have learned more things about toads, cats and owls, which kind of pet would you like to take to Hogwarts? Which one do you think is the easiest to take care of? Which one would be the funniest to have? There is no right or wrong answer, just please explain th...

Pet Discussion #3

November's Pet Discussion: In my experience, cats are animals that you either love or hate, few times there is a middle point between love and hate. Why do you think is that? What makes a cat annoying? Or, on the other hand, what makes a cat so adorable? Which is your posture about cats? There is no...

Re: The Fellowship of the Ring: Prologue - Chapter IV

This is my second time reading this book and I can tell that I am enjoying it much, much more than the first time I read it. I really enjoyed the detail gone in the story. I liked the description of the Hobbits, to know more about them and know how they are divided. I appreciate the whole effort of ...

October Prompt: Terrific Merge

Without any doubts, Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein have been one of the most important and popular “monsters” of all time. These literary works have inspired so many things, from movies, alternate versions, and so much more stuff that even on Halloween is common to see kids di...

Re: Sabriel - by Garth Nix

I want to claim Sabriel as well for my Book Bingo card!! :) I finished reading the book last week and I couldn't agree more with you Tarma. Yes. I had big troubles understanding the magic at first. In a way, it reminded me of Acient Runes, making the connection of reading the runes with reading the ...

Re: Sabriel, Chapter 24-Epilogue

After reading Sabriel I have some mixed reviews. In general words I liked the story. I didn’t find it boring and it entertained me enough to continue until the very end. Still, I never really fell in love with the book. I know it is part of a series, and although I would like to read the rest of the...

Re: Sabriel, Chapters 16-23

Regarding Sky’s discussion question, I believe it helps when authors borrow from “real” elements. Afterall, we live in the “real” world so for a reader it is easier to make a connection with the things or events that s/he is already familiar with. Of course, authors that manage to create something c...

Re: Sabriel, Chapters 8-15

I have to agree with all of you so far! It is truth that the story, in deed, got better! First of all, I have to say that I’m very grateful that Sabriel finally got herself a companion. I think the story pretty much needed that, and for me, the introduction Mogget made the story much better. I am st...

Re: Sabriel, Prologue-chapter 7

I started Reading Sabriel on Monday. So far I haven’t completely fallen in love with the story, but it has been interesting enough that after I finish reading one chapter I want to begin with the next one. Like many of you I really like the fact that it is a female protagonist who is still learning ...

Re: No! Don't kill them! (Character you cried over most)

Dobby! It will always be Dobby! :( For me, Dobby has always been an endearing character. So little and yet so brave and unique, faithful until the very end. If he had to die, I'm happy that he died saving his friends. I feel he deserved a honorable death, and I can't think of a better way for it. St...
