You have to be in the mood for good, bizarre, fantasy storytelling. I loved learning more about Greek mythology. The main character is an underdog with relatable human emotions. The writing/storytelling is really fantastic. I give it four 1/2 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨#botm

I was completely enthralled in this book. It was like an extension of the movie TROY with Brad Pitt and Rose Byrne. The writing was incredible. I rarely gives 5 stars, but I‘m giving this five stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #BOTM

A lot of people really liked this book but I was disappointed. There were times I was really struggling to find it interesting. I got about half way through then I just couldn‘t do it anymore. It dragged on and just didn‘t hold my interest. I might go back to it in the future if I have nothing better to read to try and get a better take on it. #botm

It‘s true what they say about this book. I almost bailed but if you get past the first 100 pages it‘s actually really good, original, funny and full of action. I think it would be great made into a movie. #Botm I give it 3 1/2 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨

I‘ve never read a book that had to do with the Mayan mythology and Mayan gods, so that was interesting to me. But all in all, It just didn‘t do it for me. It was lacking a lot of depth. I was worried it was gonna be a trilogy but glad it didn‘t, it just ended. I give it a 3 1/2 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ #BOTM

This was a #Botm and I liked reading this book because I wanted to see how the relationship progressed between the two main characters. It was a fast read. I thought is was realistic. It shows insecurities and mis-communication in relationships early in life. I thought sometimes it was immature and sometimes intelligent, but this is a book about a young couple after all. I give it 3 1/2 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨

I read this last year and realized I didn‘t review it. This was an exciting suspenseful read, I read it in three days. It follows four people in World War II, three trying to flee the nazi‘s and how there lives intertwine trying to board a ship to get them out, and one very young brainwashed nazi soldier you almost feel bad for him because he‘s so ignorant and knows nothing about anything, except a manipulated misplaced hate for jews. ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

If I was in my twenties I might have been more into this book. It just felt really immature to me. It was trying really hard to feel “cool” and that was distracting and took away from the story. I think younger generations might enjoy it more. 2 stars ⭐️ ⭐️

Some parts of this book were captivating other parts confused me as to what was happening. I Almost wanted to bail but was compelled to keep going. I really enjoy world war II stories and I‘m glad I know how it ended. Now that I‘m done with it, I‘m actually missing it, and other books don‘t seem nearly as interesting compared to it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ five stars.

SamAnne I love his short story collections esp. Memory Wall. Very different subject matter with a little sci if thrown in. So not everyone who likes ATLWCS likes his short stories and vice versa. But I love his writing! 1mo
Anna.VanTrapp Thanks! I will check out memory wall and his other writing! 1mo

A great young adult series I thoroughly enjoyed. Dorothy let power go to her head and is ruling Oz. All the good characters you once knew and loved are now evil, and all the bad ones are trying to save OZ along with Amy, a girl from Kansas who gets bullied and lives in a trailer. I love a good under dog story! Great imaginative storytelling!
