Eagerly looking forward to the final installment. Continually fun stuff
Alcatraz was forcefully pushed, I mean gently persuaded by his loving relatives and friends into defending a besieged city he never saw before in his life. To put things into perspective, the people who are supposed to care about the guy thought it would be a good idea to send a 13-year-old boy into a city surrounded by an army of evil librarians in hopes he somehow would be able to save the day. Off he went only to discover that the situation is much worse than what everybody thought previously [...]
Is there anything Alcatraz can't break?Tuki Tuki, the capital of the kingdom of Mokia, is under attack by an army of evil Librarians and Alcatraz decides he's going to do something about it.As with all the books in this series, Alcatraz Versus the Shattered Lens is funny, irreverent, entertaining and teaches you everything you need to know about Librarians! Definitely targeted to younger readers, 10 to 13 years of age, I'd say. After reading four books in the series, I'm not sure I'll read any [...]
*** 4.17 ***A buddy read with the young at heart at BB&B! I loved it!!! It offered everything we have come to expect from Brandon Sanderson. I love the book! I love the series! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Brandon Sanderson!!!! (not a member of any SANDERSONIAN cult)
On sale Sept 7 2016 on for $2.99So this was my least favorite of the series so far. This went a little into the dark side and except for some of the stuff at the beginning and a spectacular chapter with a bunch of Hamlet Quotes in a chase. It is more serious as discoveries are made as to what Alcatraz's father has planned, what the librarians are doing and that sometimes being the hero doesn't work out quite like you think it will.But I will say that the chapters headings (which followed no tra [...]
Poco más puedo decir que no haya dicho en reseñas anteriores de esta saga. Leed Alcatraz, leñe.
4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2016/07/20/Great to know I can always count on the Alcatraz series to lift my spirits. The Shattered Lens may be book four of the sequence, but I’m just as hooked on the story as I was when I first picked up Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians, the adventure that started it all. Brandon Sanderson continues to deliver plenty of laughs and action as he prepares to ramp things up for The Dark Talent; now that the illustrated hardcover re-issues of book [...]
Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths.My youngest son and I have been enjoying the Alcatraz series for several months now. Brandon Sanderson’s funny, bizarre, clever, and hilarious writing definitely takes some getting use to (I mean, the Evil Libraries are reading these stories after all, so Alcatraz has to confuse them.), but once you begin to acclimate yourself to the strangeness of the Free Kingdoms and the whackiness of the Smedrys the middle grade fun takes off. The author has even been kin [...]
Another great read by my one of my fave authors of all time. Hmmmm, I think I have officially run out of novels by BS to read. Well, there's still the last three books of the WOT series that he finished but I don't think I'm in the mood to tackle ( ten books from another author, to get to his work )just yet. There is however, about three or so of his novellas I haven't read, so I'll go read those in the mean while ; ))I can't wait for the final book The Dark Talent to come out on September 6th 2 [...]
Another great book from my favourite author.I did not enjoy this one quite as much as its predecessors but it was still a very fun read. The story tends to lean towards a slightly more serious tone and in one or two instances the humour felt forced. It still had me smiling most of the way through though and I am interested in knowing what happens next as things looked decidedly morbid for our team going into the last book.It’s Brandon Sanderson. I’d buy it if it was a menu.
It's easy to accept the normal and avoid thinking about the difficult and strange. Life can be so much simplier if you stop dreaming.Sanderson, te odio. Solamente voy a decir dos cosas: 1) este es el mejor libro de la serie, hasta ahora, y 2) Sanderson, te odio. He estado contando la cantidad de sagas que he empezado pero que todavía no están terminadas, por lo que tengo que esperar a que se escriban y publiquen los siguientes tomos En total son 12. Ocho de esas sagas son de Sanderson Este aut [...]
Sept 2016: Twas before book 5 I dost reread.The penultimate book of the Alcatraz series, this one ends on a darker note. In spite of some really hilarious moments, the story loses a bit of fun when our thirteen-year old protagonist was forced to grow up - all too quickly. -----------------------------Aug 2015:This instalment still has all the fun of previous Alcatraz books but with a more serious undertone. It also ended in a quasi-cliffhanger. And to prove a point about Shakespeare, he had an e [...]
I finished this book nearly a week ago and I'm still laughing. I LOVE these Alcatraz books!! They are so hysterically funny. And smart. And clever. Brandon Sanderson is a genius. I particularly loved the chapter titles in this book--hilarious! The plot was fun and exciting, and the new Smedry talent was great. (I never can figure out what a new talent will be or--when it's introduced--how in the world this talent can possibly be a GOOD thing. But it is, every time, in such a clever and funny way [...]
4 Estrellitas para la cuarta aventura de Alcatraz Smedry. Esta entrega sigue la estela de las anteriores, y se convierte en otro divertido libro que hace las delicias de lectores adultos y juveniles.Alcatraz había salido de las Tierras Silenciadas junto a su abuelo, Bastille y otros personajes. El anterior libro se desarrolló en Nalhalla, la capital de los Reinos Libres, y por fin pudimos ver ése mundo de cristal mágico y sede de los ocultantistas. Pero como en el resto de libros, Alcatraz y [...]
This review will encompass all four of the "Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians" books. I bought the first "Alcatraz" book for my 6th grader. It sounded as though it would be strange. I mean, really, how could a librarian possibly be evil? I have read "Elantris," then the "Mistborn" series, the two "Wheel of Time" books, and lastly, "Warbreaker," and I have become a huge fan of Brandon Sanderson. So, I decided to read the book before I gave it to my son.While the first chapter or two felt quite a b [...]
Officially out of Sanderson novels to read until Firefight comes out and I read more of the Wheel of Time series D:
[5 Stars] Go Alcatraz for being awesome! I NEED THE LAST BOOK!
Reread Review (Spoilers for the ~Entire~ Series): libralita.tumblr/post/1665This book was not stoopid.~Spoilers~“My name is Alcatraz Smedry, my Talent is breaking things, and I’m stoopid. Really, really, really stoopid. So stoopid, I don’t know to spell the word stupid.”—Page 11I love Alcatraz.Apparently, I’ve been counting wrong, according to the chapter numbers in this book it actually goes:2, 6, pi, 4½, 42, 144, Act V scene iii, A+, No!, 1010, 25601, 070706, 6.022140857 x 10^23, [...]
Ooh Menarik.Sekarang penasaran buku kelimanya 😢
Como sempre, esses livros são uma zuera atrás da outra hahahaha
As usual another great piece by Brandon Sanderson. Glad I waited until now to take this series in with the final book less that 2 weeks away. I would have been annoyed over this cliff hanger.
En la cuarta entrega de su serie autobiográfica Alcatraz nos cuenta como se enfrenta a la facción de las Lentes Fragmentadas, un gran ejército de Bibliotecarios con peligrosos robots gigantes que intentan conquistar Mokia. ¿Logrará el gran héroe Alcatraz Smedry salvar el reino de Mokia? Con su estilo particularmente disparatado donde conecta las propias divagaciones con la trama, acompañaremos de nuevo a Alcatraz y sus amigos en una nueva y peligrosa aventura que sirve como transición ha [...]
I absolutely adore this series and I think this book is the best one so far. There was a lot more action than in the last book, as Alcatraz sneaks into a besieged Mokian city in order to force his protectors to join the Mokians' defense. We get a lot of answers about what Al's parents are up to and see certain events that have been vaguely alluded to throughout the whole series (though not as many as we might like), we get to see Alcatraz mature and really step up to bat (although don't expect a [...]
This is the last Sanderson novel that is published that I have not already read. Fantastic amazing wonderful. I would say that I didn't love it as much as the first three but it was still incredible, and I loved it. Can't wait to read the last book next year and get all the illustrated editions!
Sanderson, B. (2010). Alcatraz Versus the Shattered Lens. New York: Press.292 pages.Internetz, you have not been witness to it. But a great battle of wills was just averted. When my co-assistant and I learned that our boss was receiving an advance copy of the fourth book in the Alcatraz series, we went to war with one another. My boss's office was left in far from perfect condition. Her many books were tossed from their slumping shelves, torn to pieces. Shredded pages rained down like apocalypt [...]
Fun Read. Had the usual humor and silliness, but there was also a depth to Alcatraz's experiences at the end of the book that I really enjoyed and was thought provoking. Great book for middle-grade readers!
Ahh Alcatraz, such refreshing humor after several dark books. I have a 12 year old friend who passes on his Alcatraz books after he has finished them. Apparently, I appreciate the same bizarre humor as he does: sarcastic side notes by the narrator, absurdly numbered chapters, and clever critique on the art of writing. The disappointing thing is that Sanderson's cleverest writing is lost on his intended audience. Few fifth and sixth graders could catch the genius of chapter Act V, Scene III where [...]
It's open war with the librarians (LIE-brarians!), but when Alcatraz travels to the island of Mokia to stave off an assault, he meets his mother and has a very interesting conversation which changes everything. What if the librarians are right and Alcatraz's family is wrong? Is this just another conspiracy?The first half of the book is completely brilliant. The wacky humor, the silly talents, and the wordplay are all top-notch. The Shakespeare chapter alone makes it worth reading! GAH! It is ama [...]
The funniest book so far. The bad thing is that now I have to wait for the sequel. Review in Swedish:Den mest spännande och roligaste boken i serien än så länge. Skrattade högt när de skämtade om bokomslaget för andra boken hihi. Gillar också att Sanderson driver med kapitelsiffrorna. Ser fram emot den sista boken i serien. Spoilertankar:Oj, hur ska det går nu när(view spoiler)[Bastille är i koma? (hide spoiler)]Var lite oväntat att Alcatraz nu ska(view spoiler)[samarbeta med sin ma [...]
