The Great & the Small – Review

The Great and the Small by A.T. Balsara is an amazing book. On one level, it’s the story of intelligent rats, told from their point of view through vivid descriptions and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations. All of that, however, is on the surface. Beneath the warm and fuzzy characters, we find a story of war and the devastating effect it has on everyone involved. The story follows a young rat named Finn who has a strong moral compass. He is the nephew of Papa, the beloved leader of the rats. Papa and the council wage an all-out war on the humans … Continue reading The Great & the Small – Review

The Maze Runner Books

STAR for Entertainment Value …. and a STAR for Clean Content …  The Maze Runner Trilogy, written by James Dashner, and consisting of The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials, and The Death Cure are an excellent Young Adult series that I highly recommend to anyone 13 and up.

I was never really sure where the stories were going, and that’s a good thing. These books are completely original in their concept. … Continue reading The Maze Runner Books

The Hunger Games, Books and Movies

Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games book series has, so far, produced three top-selling books and two successful movie adaptations. I read The Hunger Games 3 or 4 years ago. Ever since then I’ve had a keen interest in this series. In my opinion it’s one of the most intriguing premises I’ve ever come across in books or movies. We’re given a hero who we get to know inside and out and grow to care about so deeply by the time she’s thrown into this game that’s as sick as it is thrilling. The last one alive wins. It sounds almost cliché these days after so many book and movie … Continue reading The Hunger Games, Books and Movies

Earth To Echo & Maze Runner

Two New Movies for Young Sci-Fi Fans, Coming Soon! EARTH TO ECHO Coming out July 2nd. This one is exciting to me because it’s a rare science fiction movie that’s actually rated PG. It looks like the kind of movie adults can watch with their kids and they can actually all enjoy the same movie together. Not only that, the trailer looks awesome. It reminds me of some of my favorite movies like ET, Super 8, and Goonies. Here is the newest trailer. THE MAZE RUNNER The movie adaptation of The Maze Runner, by James Daschner, is scheduled to be released September … Continue reading Earth To Echo & Maze Runner
