Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Promise Part 1 Review

Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Promise Part 1Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Promise Part 1 by Gene Luen Yang

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I liked the book based on how I can see events developing into the new avatar series. If you have been keeping up with the fan fare about Korra you will easily be able to see how the new world evolved into what it is from where the last series ended and the new one picks up off from. That being said I’m still interested to seeing how things develop to be what they are especially after the cliff-hanger at the end of the book. The book is short “really short” and quite easy to read, probably due to it’s intended age market but most fans will still want to read it any way I think. That is if they where able to resist reading the leaked pages a while ago.

1Q84 Book Review

1Q841Q84 by Haruki Murakami

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Murakami does a great job of bringing you into the story. He seems to really go in to the background of the character and their motivations for what they are doing. I liked how each chapter focused around a character and how their stories would periodically get closer to each other until the end when they are finally together. I really liked this story overall and found it quite easy to believe in this world. I definitely started looking at the moon more closely while I was reading the story.
