  • I requested this book thinking that it would be a fun and magical children s story aimed at 8 10 year olds, like with the Percy Jackson series, but I was really surprised by the complexity and depth in this book, as well as the darkness, and loved every minute of reading it I m actually a little disappointed that I ll now have to wait for so long to read the next book and see what happens Kate, Michael and Emma have been shunted from orphanage to orphanage for 10 years, since being removed from [...]

  • Das sch nste Jugend Fantasy Buch, dass ich seid langem gelesen habe Ein toller Auftakt freue mich auf die n chsten beiden B nde Volle Punktzahl und eine absolute Leseempfehlung

  • AHHHHHHH So good.First impressions 1 The story is amazing It s fantastical, magical, fast paced and action packed 2 Characters are love The relationships between Kate, Michael and Emma are great There is a fierce love and hate like with all siblings relationship between them And their growth and development is outstanding There are great side characters as well.3 Fresh You would think orphans on a quest adventure to save the world has been done a billion 1 times, but The Emerald Atlas does it di [...]

  • WOW.This was as magical as Harry Potter and as epic as Narnia The Emerald Atlas was simply a delight to read.This is a fantastic children s fantasy The characters are engaging and each has their own personality, making it easy to relate to at least one And they have flaws They have real believable flaws.The world is simply enchanting It is built so well that I could imagine it all so well at points I wondered to myself if there had been a dramatisation of this made because it really came to life [...]

  • If I was 10 15 younger I would rate this book 5 5 without a doubt Now I am maybe bit too old but I enjoyed it, it was lovely book.Must read for fans of books like Narnia or comics like Amulet

  • The Emerald Atlas reads like a mix of C.S.Lewis s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, J.K.Rowling s Harry Potter, and even Lemony Snicket s A Series of Unfortunate Events It was just too much so many plots and elements taken from every other popular series that Stephens almost fails to deliver his own twists, his unique charms, to the novel Stephen s protagonists are not unfamiliar They re almost archetypal And certainly, the re very reminiscent of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire particula [...]

  • While it is possible for a plot to be too simple, this author seemed to believe that his story would get better and better the complicated he could make the plot What we end up with is three protagonists who are rarely together so we have to follow at least two and sometimes three different story lines at the same time with constant shifting between them, not to mention all the not very well defined time traveling and it s kind of a mess There are two or three chapters near the end which seem t [...]

  • JK Rowlings Harry Potter series resulted in a cataclysmic change in fantasy fiction for children Forty years ago science fiction was marketed to children and young adults Robert Heinlein, Andre Norton, Anne McCaffrey and Ursula LeGuin were available at the library, but fantasy was mostly missing This is not to say fantasy novels were not available, but it was primarily limited to Tolkien s Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit It was not until The Sword of Shannara was published in 1977 and became a [...]

  • OkayI torn here I d like to go a bit than 3 stars here, but if I do I ll need to go find all my 4 star books and move them up to 5, then what do i do with the 5 star books So, stuck with 3 and telling you i find it a bit better than just 3.You will, if like me, you occasionally pick up a YA book or if you have YAs in your life and read with them, find some of this book somewhat familiar A group of 3 children rather than a single child are whisked away into the night away from their parents beca [...]

  • It took a few months but we made it Me, my son and Katherine, Michael and Emma P were shuttled between orphanages before finally ending up in Cambridge Falls under the care of the mysterious Dr Pym and then straight into a fantastic adventure through dwarf kingdoms and lost cities and even time itself to find their destinies and learn the truth behind the disappearance of their parents If you re in the market for a great adventure fantasy to read aloud this one is perfect My voice teachers would [...]

  • First in a series of three I m guessing about three kids who are supposed to save the world The only thing is they don t know why and they don t know howThese three kids, Kate, Michael and Emma are orphans Their parents had them taken to an orphanage ten years ago with a promise to Kate that they would be back Since then the children have been shuffled from home to home never giving up on their parents and never allowing themselves to be adopted They eventually end up in a place called Cambridge [...]

  • John Steven s The Emerald Atlas was a real dud It didn t know what it wanted to be, Harry Potter or Narnia And it failed to be either and also failed to be something new and original The plot was dull, the characters unlikeable, and the plotline forced I kept reading on and on hoping for it to get better but instead I started disliking it ever I had high hopes for this one3 children, parents suddenly vanish, then they are young teens who go on an adventure on a strange island Sounds exciting rig [...]

  • Ottima rilettura, mi mancavano i tre fratelli e tutti questi personaggi finalmente tra poco sapr la fine di questa trilogia E ora sotto con il secondo

  • I m personally not a big fan of fantasy books, but I picked this one up because it got such good reviews and sounded interesting The first book in a new trilogy, it s the story of 3 young siblings who have been in various orphanages for 10 years, despite their conviction that their parents are coming back for them some day Their lives change when Kate, Michael and Emma discover a powerful book of magic which leads them on exciting but dangerous time travel adventures and to the realization that [...]

  • The Emerald Atlas has been sitting on my shelf for years and years I got it as a gift I think But never got around to picking it up.Now I know why This story was nothing but a poorly written snozefest There was a good idea behind it but the execution was shoddy The descriptions were just really lacking and it made me really struggle to get enthused to read further I cannot honestly not tell you want two of our protagonists, Kate or Emma, looks like Michael has glasses That s all I picked up on h [...]

  • ZUR GESCHICHTEIch kann die Geschichte nicht vorbehaltlos bewerten, da das H rspiel ja nun einmal doch sehr stark gek rzt ist, aber ich bewerte hier einfach mal das, was ich geh rt habe Die Abenteuer um Michael, Kate und Emma k nnen einen von Beginn an verzaubern Es ist diese Art von Zauber, den auch Harry Potter auf mich gehabt hatte Zwar ist es eigentlich eher ein Kinderbuch, aber ich finde, dass hier durchaus auch Erwachsene ihre Freude dran haben werden Was mir mit am besten gefallen hat, ist [...]

  • When I was a real children s librarian, I tried to maintain a familiarity with the books that were popular with kids, which occasionally meant reading books that didn t live up to my lofty literary standards Since I don t work directly with the public any, I rarely take the time to read mediocre books on purpose Sometimes I feel like this gives me a skewed set of standards for the books I do read It s easy to nitpick A Monster Calls when you re comparing it to Breadcrumbs, instead of the latest [...]

  • What do you get if you throw together The Series of Unfortunate Events, The Lord of the Rings, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and a little bit of Harry Potter type magic You get this book, an adventure story, a fantasy story a story of orphans and wizards, hidden books and midnight chases.One winter night, four year old Kate and her two siblings are separated from their parents for a secret purpose and while she wants to believe they are still alive, ten years of orphanage swapping begins [...]

  • I started this with a fair amount of skepticism Considering this has all the hallmarks of the usual derivative fantasy children of destiny , a missing magical object upon which the safety of the world hangs in the balance, a very evil bad person, an angelic good person, DWARVES, a wizard, etc etcally, I should have been rolling my eyes so hard they fell out But I wasn t I really, really liked it The place and time feel like the present, and yet not quite in what Balti is there an Edgar Allen Poe [...]

  • What a fantastical adventure This was an enjoyable book filled with magic, wizards, dwarves, prophecy and humor I only gave this book 3 stars because the three main characters the children Kate, Emma Michael weren t my favourite characters I found that I liked them ok but who I thought was fantastic was Dr Pym He was funny, brave and mysterious Kind of reminded me of Dumbledore I loved the ending and look forward to the next installment.

  • The story is amazing and the characters also When you read it, the impression is that it s all surrounded by magic Can t wait to read The next

  • This is the first entry in The Books of Beginning series by John Stephens The story is very dramatic, with a host of magical creatures and danger at every turn The three orphans Kate, Michael, and Emma have the same older sister, middle brother, baby sister composition as the books featuring our favorite orphan siblings A Series of Unfortunate Events The plot can be confusing, as the characters traveling back and forth through time and interacting with the same people, changing history along the [...]

  • Complete review at teachmentortexts 2011 An almost 5 Summary Kate, Michael and Emma have been alone for 10 years Kate s last memory of her mother is as the 3 of them were being taken away her mother told her to take care of her siblings and that has been the center of Kate s existence since then And she has done the best she could as the three of them have been shuffled from orphanage to orphanage never really finding home and always wondering why their parents abandoned them But their newest or [...]

  • Admittedly, when I think of books involving siblings, A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket and The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis immediately spring to mind In part, I was afraid that it would drift too closely along those lines and I am pleased to say that it was unique Siblings Kate the eldest , Michael the middle child , and Emma the youngest have been whisked away from the safety and comfort of their own home to be protected from the darker forces that are after them As a resu [...]

  • Actual rating might be 3.5.A fun and fairly original fantasy adventure, the first of a series, aimed especially at children teenager audience The story was original and imaginative enough, though still having a lot that reminds you of things in various fantasy books It s about three siblings Kate, Michael and Emma who have spent almost all their lives wandering from one orphanage to another, until the last one they re sent to is the start of an unexpected adventure involving a mysterious magical [...]
