[books] The Siege of MacindawAuthor John Flanagan – Multi-channel.co

I ve found these books to be sort of, uneven I liked the early books, but the sequence concerning Will s captivity lost me some what as I found my interest waning A lot of this will of course be somewhat personal and subjective and apply to me, some will I suppose find it to be true for them others less so I found my interest in this YA series picking back up somewhat in the last couple of books aside from my annoyance at the blatant cliffhanger with which the book before this ended.Let my say something here, and please bear with me.in other words I m not trying to sound in any way pompous I had a couple of complaints with this book and at least one may be explained by the fact that I have read so many books There were times when I was going okay, we all know what s coming nextjust get on with your cliche and move the story along But I m not really sure that everyone thinks thatso whether the books plot and the story s situations are a bit as I said cliched, is something to decide for yourself Often I saw plot devices I recognized going in and knew the next events almost as if I d already read them I think each reader may need to think about this individuallyit s a YA book.The second problem I had In at least 3 places I felt as if certain events and confrontations drug out far too long It was as if the author had planned out something and wanted to use every bit of work and every idea he d had about it I was so ready at times for this confrontation or that combat to be over.at one point I intended to rate the book 3 stars, then 4 stars, then 3 stars again I ve settled on 4 stars as I find this, on the whole an enjoyable read and a well written book I like it.over all. They just keep getting better and better Ok so I gave this book one star because it was that bad Really was it that bad yes it was that bad and.I was so disappointed in this sixth book of the Ranger s Apprentice series The first four books where so great and this one fell utterly short I HAD hoped after reading the last book and being bored out of my mind that this next one would pick up a little, boy did it not Quiet frankly it got to be a chore reading it by the end of the book and I was jumping in my seat waiting to get done with it so I could wright a raving review Ok so maybe not that bad but still, it was pretty darn bad.Some of the things I found wrong where it were that it kept repeating the same stuff, over and over and over and over and you get the point Like the information about how castle stairway s were built so that the person coming down had the advantage That is great information and all but I really don t think we need to read it three times, I mean come on does the author think we re that dumb Also the details on the fighting scenes were just, boring, and dumb and so trivial that I was rolling my eyes and skimming over lines AND the quote humorous moments in the book were all just stupid and dumb and boring and ahhhhhh they didn t need to be there.AND FUTHERMORE In one part the sorcerer aka healer in the forest who has been misunderstood all these years How predictable is that tells Will that he needs fog to make his illusions in front of the castle they are sieging And Will promptly replies How will we do that when there is no fog around the castle and Mr healer comes back with the brilliant reply We will just use pipes and water and make fog Ok really THAT IS SO DARN LAME First off how the heck can you make fog, second using pipes in a medieval setting which I doubt they would have had pipes in is so darn stupid and third, It s just stupid Ok so those are just some of the major things I found lame and boring and stupid and so darn annoying with this book I m sure if I put my mind to it I could find several but alas I don t have the time as I need to start a hopefully better book Rating 4.5 I love it when a book ends and the last word is happiness. John Flanagan, you have no right to do this to my heart There should have been an epilogue at least Why was there no epilogue endless screaming AND WHERE WAS HALT So Many Panic Attacks Just Let Me Breathe This was probably one of the best scenes in the book SPOILER ALERT For those who haven t read it yet, I wouldn t read any fartherAre you alright he said, taking his arm from Will s shoulders and turning him so he could see clearly, looking for some sign of a wound Will coughed and retched in reaction to his close shave He knew how near to dying he had been, and his legs were weak from the thought of it Will Horace said, concern making his voice harder Are you okay The young warrior was frantically running his hands over Will s chest and stomach, trying to see where he might be wounded There was a lot of blood soaked into his jerkin front and it had to be coming from somewhere Still in shock Will reacted angrily to the question Of course I m not alright, you idiot he snapped He damn near killed me Or didn t you notice Yes, I actually read this book in one day It s rather surprising what you manage to read when you have neither a smartphone nor a computer at hand xDThe Siege of Macindaw is the sixth book of the Ranger s Apprentice series It starts immediately after the ending of book five Alyss is still stuck in Macindaw, Will is hiding with the magician in the forest and Horace is making his way north This is the culmination of everything that was started in the last book The character threats and plot lines are all wrapped up or less nicely Yay No cliffhanger this time Some random comments.Shadow I m an emotional mess and that was sad even if it was also really sweet.Did Horace just actually lie Halt really must have rubbed off on him Good for you xDOh romance In all fairness, that one I didn t really feel I think the author is a lot better at writing humor and action than emotional development but then again, I m a woman and the MC is a man maybe men just don t think about love as much as women what do I know Anyway, this is still a quick and fun series and I have the next four books waiting for me at home yay for libraries Also not my favorite of the series Once again, Halt is only in it very briefly, and Tug is barely mentioned.
