I quite enjoyed returning to some of the characters of the Foo series I found this one funny and entertaining.
SighI was really glad that there wasFoo material out there, but I was sadly disappointed Though I loved being with Geth and Clover again, I dearly missed Leven and Winter though we had reason for Leven s absence Plus, the story itself read like fan fiction The author was just throwing out randomness left and right, and it left me felling quite annoyed and sad Users Madeline Desktop Randomness Gifs Aww.
gif puts head in hands ppppppfffffbbbbt ¼ Geth and the Return of the Lithens (Beyond Foo, #1) ¼ Two words Leven Thumps It was one of my favorite book series ever And the only reason I read it in the first place was because of the cover of the third book I just picked it up at the library one day two years ago, summer vacation, and thought hey this book looks good, I ll look it up Ironically enough Leven Thumps is what got me into hardcore reading in the first place, before that ya I loved books but I never read them like I did after Leven Thumps That s also the year I found goodreads, a good few months later sure, but still the saw school year Thank you god Point is, I was so excited to find that Obert Skye was coming out with a new series because of how much I loved the Leven Thumps series And I wasn t surprised to find that the first chapter realy wasnt that entertaining, nor did it make me want to read on But of course I did, obvi
Now that Geth has helped to restore order to Foo, life is a littlewell, a little dull Clover, whose job is supposed to be helping Leven settle in, finds Leven has grown past needing much help The two of them are searching Foo for an adventure when the unthinkable happens someone from beyond the borders of Foo stumbles across their path And she needs help Geth and Clover were two of the highlights of the Leven Thumps series Geth, the tall, impossibly cheerful lithen, finds he s not exactly who he used to be Now that Ezra and he have reunited, Geth s normal lithen calm and cheer coexist with Ezra s impatience and rage And with the ever curious Clover by his side, Geth can find the strangest adventures The two play well off each other, even if Clover isn t quite as dramatic as he was with Leven There is only one piece of candy and some marshmallows I didn t want to see that plot device ove This was enjoyable enough to read, but not great I had some problems with the writing style, especially in the beginning He likes to use a lot of weird similes and comparisons that would always bump me out of the story while I decided whether or not I liked his phrase For example, The stones looked like a huge set of teeth in need of major orthodontia or The sun s belly hung like an expectant mother s, sending heavy rays of warmth down over the tranquil scene or Spiderwebs covered the opening like a dirty film over a withered eye These phrases definitely put pictures in your mind, but I felt like they were overused, especially in the beginning Either that or I just got used to them as I progressed through the book My second issue with t Did you ever wonder where the figures in your dreams go Well, apparently, they go to Foo But that story is for another time This is the first in a new series by author Obert Skye Leven Thumps series that goes beyond of the land of Foo with its happy dreams and hopes What lies beyond It s definitely not pretty It s still something out of your dreams, but there s no hopeful golden glow here This is a great story full of adventure and hilarious cheesy one liners that will have you chuckling throughout I looked forward to the opening paragraph of every single chapter when the narrator would wax eloquent on some totally random point in preparation forof the story Highly entertaining for everyone, but I think it would especially appeal to young boys This is the first in
