    Well I finished it I d really describe this as fantasy adventure Though if I m honest it doesn t really feature many of the ingredients I personally consider are required for the fantasy adventure recipe I write fantasy adventure The Last Dragon Slayer is currently Free on most Ebook Retailers , to me the genre is about dragons, dwarves, elves, dungeons and battles, with a sprinkling of magic So what makes this fantasy adventure Well, it s clearly set in some sort of post fossil fuel fut Well I finished it I d really describe this as fantasy adventure Though if I m honest it doesn t really feature many of the ingredients I personally consider are required for the fantasy adventure recipe I write fantasy adventure The Last Dragon Slayer is currently Free on most Ebook Retailers , to me the genre is about dragons, dwarves, elves, dungeons and battles, with a sprinkling of magic So what makes this fantasy adventure Well, it s clearly set in some sort of post fossil fuel future The implications of this aren t really explored in complete depth The world is our world in the future, but I get the feeling that some technology has moved forwards and some has moved backwards It s a very familiar setting, with a few twists and quirks in to surprise you.Now the focus of the plot is Charlie Ashanti Near the beginning of the book, his parents are whisked away leaving him alone He has no idea of who has taken them or why This sets up the quest of finding out why they were taken and finding them A big clue to the circumstances comes when a suspicious local criminal appears to try and abduct Charlie A tactic Charlie often uses to resolve conflicts and to further his goals is to play the naive child and to feign compliance He s clever in how he uses this tactic, but it isn t the strength that makes him special.Charlie s real specialty is talking to cats Now that might not seem like so much of a big deal, I know many of my female bookie friends talk to cats ALL the time The difference in Charlie s case is that the cats talk back and Charlie is able to understand them The characterization of cats seems realistic in this book to me I m not really a cat person per se, but my perception is that the author portrays the cats feelings and emotions plausibly It adds an interesting dimension to the book and gives it a specific identity The ability often comes into the plot too I enjoyed the cat interactions and the tale of how he came to talk to cats I liked the revelations regarding lion tamers that pertain to this ability too The coded messages, between Charlie and his parents were satisfying and I really liked the characters of Charlie s parents, Aneeba and. Erm, his mum The Circus section, which made up a good portion of the middle of the book was enjoyable, but for me the character I really liked was King Boris The book ends on something of a cliffhanger Everything is tidied up and a definite story has taken place It s a book with a satisfying ending, but one which definitely urges you to read on I can t complain too much about this strategy because it s precisely what I aim for in my fantasy series This author finishes the tale in a trilogy however, whereas I expect my series will run to seven or eight books The writing was good, and engaging, but a little quirky at times I ll be honest I think my daughter Who I read this to she s 9 enjoyed thisthan me She s very keen on animals and I think appreciates the concept of Charlie being able to communicate with cats There was some peril, but nothing unsuitable for 7 year old children I d say it s probably an 8 or 9 book in terms of them reading it to themselves My daughter COULD have read this, but she likes me sitting and reading to her, and I enjoy it too The subject matter was interesting to me, but not as gripping as a traditional fantasy world I d say I enjoyed Harry Potter , even though I hated the book ending of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and thought the film ending With the book, the sock and Lucius Malfoy was much better.What this book DOES have is an air of a mystery and a subtle criticism global pharmaceutical companies Which I appreciate.All in all, it s a very good book The thing that hindered my enjoymentthan anything was simply the fact I didn t gel with subject matter as much I do with Potter However some children will probably prefer this Overall a great book.Paperback Edition StanleyAuthor of The Last Dragon Slayer Free to download

    This book has been sitting on my shelf since middle school and honestly I wish I read it back then because I think I would have enjoyed itI mean, it s great It has a POC as the main character and that s something I always love because we needdiversity in books Plus he can talk to cats I m thinking that was the reason I picked this book up all those years ago That or the shiny cover.I finished it pretty quickly, so I mean it didn t take up a lot of my time, but I just don t think This book has been sitting on my shelf since middle school and honestly I wish I read it back then because I think I would have enjoyed itI mean, it s great It has a POC as the main character and that s something I always love because we needdiversity in books Plus he can talk to cats I m thinking that was the reason I picked this book up all those years ago That or the shiny cover.I finished it pretty quickly, so I mean it didn t take up a lot of my time, but I just don t think I read this at the right time It was certainly aimed at a younger audience which is why I gave it to my younger cousin when I finished it The writing was very direct and spelled things out for the reader and personally I would rather try to figure things out for myself It was very imaginative, especially when it came to the circus scenes, but I m just not a fan of the circus so those scenes kind of bored me I don t like the man Charlie met towards the end who just seemed to accept everything Charlie threw at him and took Charlie under his wing I mean, a child sneaks into your train car with six lions and you re like oh yeah, that s cool I don t think so.I would have liked to hearfrom the cats They clearly have some sort of gossip system going around because within hours it seemed every cat in the country knew about Charlie s parents Honestly, the only reason I even picked up this book now was because I thought my cousin might want to read it and I wanted to read it before I gave it to her I should have read it when I bought it all those years ago, and I regret not doing so It s a series trilogy I believe so nothing was really explained this time around and nothing was really solved in the end It endedlike a chapter would end rather than a book I never connected with any of the characters, so I don t care to continue the series

    Charlie s parents are kidnapped, and Charlie goes searching for them, traveling with a circus, and becoming the LionBoy for a lion act But the lion tamer doesn t know that Charlie can talk to cats Charlie and his lion friends decide to escape the circus and strike out on their own to find his parents.What a fun book Just a romping, rollicking adventure story with lots of layers to it I read this book all in one day it s an easy read and really captured my attention The plot even surprised Charlie s parents are kidnapped, and Charlie goes searching for them, traveling with a circus, and becoming the LionBoy for a lion act But the lion tamer doesn t know that Charlie can talk to cats Charlie and his lion friends decide to escape the circus and strike out on their own to find his parents.What a fun book Just a romping, rollicking adventure story with lots of layers to it I read this book all in one day it s an easy read and really captured my attention The plot even surprised me a few times I love Charlie s character His emotional ups and downs are perfectly timed to the pace of the plot, and give us a feel for his humanity, making him an interesting and endearing character.I loved Charlie s parents right away too such a quirky family with their own little language Even the villains are superbly written creepy and petty and spiteful and sly Just brilliant I was completely fascinated by the lions and all the circus people I have never never heard a circus described in such an entrancing way I felt like I was there, watching a real circus act I actually laughed at the clowns and I hate clowns Especially reading about clowns that s totally different from seeing them Reading about clowns is not funny it s just annoying What kind of enchanting writing could actually make me laugh at clowns I ve been bewitched haha I can see why the writing style not the subject material is compared to J.K Rowling It really sucks you into this other world and makes it real for you.My only complaint about this book is that some of the plot developments are a bit too fantastical and coincidental to be believable Granted, it s a book about a boy who speaks cat language, but still That made it a 4 star book for me, instead of the 5 stars I might have given it.Can t wait to read the rest of this trilogy Update Reading it for the second time is just as good Loved it again

    Read this one with my daughter Neither one of us were thrilled with the book We discussed it and found that we were both fairly bored On the bright side it did help her meet reading goals at school.

    The book LionBoy by Zizou Corder was an amazing book It is about a kid named Charlie who has parents that are scientist Charlie also has a special trait where he can talk to cats It all starts when some kid named Rafi who kidnaps his parents because they were working on some cure to asthma So Charlie goes on a huge journey to try and find them First, he joins a circus that is going to Paris because a cat told him that two strange men were talking about bringing them to Paris At the circu The book LionBoy by Zizou Corder was an amazing book It is about a kid named Charlie who has parents that are scientist Charlie also has a special trait where he can talk to cats It all starts when some kid named Rafi who kidnaps his parents because they were working on some cure to asthma So Charlie goes on a huge journey to try and find them First, he joins a circus that is going to Paris because a cat told him that two strange men were talking about bringing them to Paris At the circus he meets the circus lions and becomes the Lion Boy The lions ask for Charlie to help them escape and if he does they will help find his parents The only thing I didn t like about the book was that they left you at a cliff hanger at the end

    2.5 3 stars I think I would have really liked this as a kid I found the writing a bit simplistic and as if the author s viewed the audience as a bit slow I could really tell that it was aimed for young children by the language alone Main character Charlie didn t have much depth, nor any of the other characters really.Other than that, I had two issues with the book 1 It s never explained how the cat language sounds What do other people hear when Charlie speaks to the cats It really bugged 2.5 3 stars I think I would have really liked this as a kid I found the writing a bit simplistic and as if the author s viewed the audience as a bit slow I could really tell that it was aimed for young children by the language alone Main character Charlie didn t have much depth, nor any of the other characters really.Other than that, I had two issues with the book 1 It s never explained how the cat language sounds What do other people hear when Charlie speaks to the cats It really bugged me, because the author made it seem like they were just speaking with normal words but also pointed out that it was nothing like it Confusing.2 The way Charlie is in awe with the circus performance, which included a lot of wild animals I m so saddened that many countries even Sweden allow wild animals in circus shows I find that so cruel and old fashioned and I can t believe anyone would want to watch that, not to mention be in awe with it I think it gives the wrong message to people circuses with animals are something cool and fantastic, when in reality it s animal cruelty and nothing else.That being said, the book is filled with action and it had some sweet moments I liked the ending with the king as well I wish Charlie hadn t spent so much time on the boat with the circus, because that was a bit boring The ending made up for it a little bit

    I really loved this I didn t actually read it, but the narration was so amazingly enjoyable that I probably will get the next audiobook out as well Ten year old Charlie returns home one day to find that his parents are gone and things don t seem quite right So thus, he goes on an adventure to find them again and bring them back home On his journey, he stows away on boats, joins the floating circus, and constantly dodges the bad guy Raffie and his dog But not only that, he can talk Cat He I really loved this I didn t actually read it, but the narration was so amazingly enjoyable that I probably will get the next audiobook out as well Ten year old Charlie returns home one day to find that his parents are gone and things don t seem quite right So thus, he goes on an adventure to find them again and bring them back home On his journey, he stows away on boats, joins the floating circus, and constantly dodges the bad guy Raffie and his dog But not only that, he can talk Cat He can talk to alley cats and pet cats and lions I do think that yes, it is a little bit young for me, but the characters are so likable and the narration kept me laughing, that I couldn t just stop listening to it.Content Mild language and rude name calling For ages 11

    Fun little adventure that engrosses you and makes you care The main character was surprisingly likeable, the plot wasn t too flimsy, and the pace was pretty good The ending was classically unfulfilling so as to prepare for another two books, which is fine but does mean this book stands less well as a stand alone Some of the action sequences were a little jumpy and under described which was confusing, but you get the gist of it pretty easily And no, The Demon, it s not about furries.


  10. Lily Lily says:

    3.5 starsNot as good or well written as I remember, but still plenty of fun The futuristic element has definitely aged poorly already, especially around the climate change themes worldbuilding it feels like the early naughties minus aeroplanes, and far too vaguely developed to be convincing.
