      I blush to admit that I had not head of the Lasky s series until the movie brought it to my attention My husband and I had just finished one of Kenneth Oppel s Silverwing books when we saw the trailer for this adorable and very cool looking owl movie So, when I found out it was based on a book, it seemed only natural to transition from reading about bats to owls The Capture was a real surprise for me I was expecting something cute and fun and adventuresome Instead, I got something much weighty [...]

      I wanted to like these books, but I didn t I trudged through three volumes before I told my daughter that we needed to find something else to read A few points 1 The world building is inconsistent and poorly thought out If, in this post human world, stone castles are little than tumbled ruins, how would any barn have survived well enough for barn owls to associate themselves with them And why would they anyway The inexplicable knowledge of the owls regarding human buildings is strange compared [...]

      A traditional kids against the world story done in a very original way The characters in this story are all owls They start off very young and innocent and are forced to grow up very quickly when some evil owls take advantage of them It turns into the beginning of an epic adventure which takes another 14 books to complete.The book is a nice stepping stone between first readers and young adult fiction in reading difficulty, as well as in plot complexity and concepts I think older grade school stu [...]

      So these series weren t like AMAZING but they were worth reading They actually made me come to have a love for owls and have a big owl fetish haha Some may think it s weird with a world of talking owls cough um, you do know people there s other books I may not have read, have read or maybe not ever read that I know of that there s talking animals like Redwall And there s Narnia Same with Disney Little mermaid, Cinderella, lion king, dumbo, Fox and the Hound I could go on My point is who cares if [...]

      I picked this book, even though it is a children s novel because I saw a preview for the movie, Guardians of Ga Hoole The movie has the most amazing animation, I know I ll want to see it Often the book for these children s movies are so much better than the movie, so I decided I d give it a whirl After getting past the reader s various owl voices, some of which are quite overdone, I really enjoyed the book.It truly is a social commentary on the world and the evil in itd the good Much it of it re [...]

      Di sini, burung hantu kerap diidentikkan dengan keberadaan makhluk halus Di India bahkan suara burung hantu merupakan pertanda akan datangnya kematian Tapi dalam mitologi Yunani, Athena digambarkan dengan simbol burung hantu yang melambangkan pengetahuan dan kebijaksanaan Dikatakan bahwa jika ada burung hantu yang terbang berputar di atas pasukan yang sedang berperang, maka dipastikan pasukan tersebut akan menang Makanya Troy berhasil dikalahkan kali ya Atw si Athena emang sebel aja gara gara ka [...]

      As the Mom of a seven year old girl, I struggle to find appropriate books for us to read together She reads her own books, geared toward her reading level, but we always try to have a book that I read to her on the our plate These books are typically for older kids, but I feel exposing her to ideas and words beyond her reading level can only do her good My struggle is I am tired of princesses and fairies She would never admit to it, but I have a sneaking suspicion she is tired of them too.The Ca [...]

      This is series is one instance when I have no problem being a gushing lolly daydream It might also just be the root of my love affair with the avian section in the bloom of my youth Blood letting beaks and flesh lacerating talons image error Yes, it s scandalous But the honest thing to do.

      Burung hantu identik dengan hal hal yang menyeramkan, mungkin karena jenis burung ini hanya beraktifitas di malam hari dengan suaranya yang menyeramkan bagaikan hantu tak heran burung ini muncul di kisah kisah horror, penyihir, atau kisah kisah seram lainnya Beberapa film atau drama horror tak jarang menggunakan burung hantu dan memperdengarkan suaranya agar menimbulkan kesan mistis dan seram pada adegannya Kita tentu masih ingat bagaimana sebuah acara TV The Master menampilkan sosok magician fa [...]

      In anticipation of the upcoming movie based on Kathryn Lasky s GUARDIANS OF GA HOOLE series, has re released the first book in the series, The Capture Being an owl fan, I of course had to give it a try Lasky is clearly following in Richard Adams footsteps here, what with her invented owl words and the mixture of animal behavior and very human social commentary The Capture is less intense than Watership Down in terms of both reading level and violence level, however, and would be suited for reade [...]

      I loved the movie when I saw it, but the books had been on my to be read list for a long time Now that I have read the first one, I know I will need to read them all in short order, as these books are so much better than the movie The depth of character and the progress in the book is amazing There is so much detail and specifics that it was wonderful to read I am usually leery of reading books about films I liked, in part because the books are often different and you get comfortable with what y [...]

      I was disappointed that the book didn t really complete the story, but that s the only real fault I found I had trouble at first with the amount of anthropomorphism in the owl characters, but they were well developed and I was quickly caught up in the story of Soren, a young owl orphaned and then kidnapped The author made Soren s struggle to keep his identity and escape into an engaging plot that any child who has ever felt helpless and unloved will relate to.The message of facing fears with cou [...]

      What a pleasant surprise I ve been telling a young reader I will get to this now that I have I wish I had done so sooner I guess I expected something run of the mill, where Lasky s easy to read page turner, about an heroic owlet who stands up to systematic thought control, is really quite profound It makes me want to recommend Animal Farm and Watership Down to that young reader And to read the next in the series A couple of Lasky s insights T he sweetest taste in the world was a question on the [...]

      The movie was so much better There are a lot of potentially exciting events in this story, but the writing style is so amateur and flat that I was practically bored to tears reading this There are also a lot of weird things about St Aggies and the songs wereting It was like she was trying to make a complex novel like Game of Thrones or something but over simplified it or didn t know how to correctly go about it I understand that this is supposed to be a children s novel, but I ve read many child [...]

      Bagi saya, yang paling menarik dari buku ini adalah tokoh tokohnya Di sela sela kisah petualangan, berbagai jenis burung hantu dijelaskan lengkap dengan ciri ciri fisik dan sifat sifat mereka Rupanya sebelum datang ide untuk membuat novel fantasi dengan burung tokoh hantu ini, Lasky awalnya bermaksud membuat buku non fiksi tentang kehidupan burung hantu Pantas saja Lasky sangat fasih bicara tentang burung malam ini Ide yang bagus menurut saya, mengenalkan kehidupan binatang lewat cerita fantasi [...]

      Like Watership Down, i doubted how enjoyable i would find a book told from the perspective of animals And, like Watership Down, i was proven completely wrong Kathryn Lasky has created a rich world in the Ga hoole series and it works Her characters, despite being owls, are extremely well developed and each has a distinct personality The plot is exciting and there is plenty of action and adventure to please both young and older readers It s not a very long book, but the quality of the writing is e [...]

      I know I am a bit old to have just read this, but it is a bestseller series and thus I was curious While it just appears to introduce characters and concepts, I kept expecting to happen due to the description of the back of the book we do not meet all four owls mentioned in the description until the end The book also seemed very irrational even for its reading level, and even onto silly sounding terms like hark and glunking moon Still, the culture of the owls was fun, and maybe the series gets [...]
