Deskripsi

Just when fifteen-year-old Bobby Pendragon thinks he understands his purpose as a Traveler-to protect the territories of Halla from the evil Saint Dane-he is faced with an impossible choice. The inhabitants of Eelong are in danger of being wiped out by a mysterious plague. The only way Bobby can stop it is to bring the antidote from another territory. Since moving items between territories is forbidden by the Traveler rules, if Bobby chooses to save Eelong he could endanger himself, his friends, and the future of every other being in Halla.

    Yet another incredible adventure. Intense from start to finish, MacHale expands Halla in exhilarating ways. The threat continues to grow and Bobby requires greater help and greater personal strength in the war against Saint Dane. These books are not for the faint of heart!

    I love Louise Doughty's books but this one didn't quite hit the mark with me. I never did get my head round what central character John's employers actually did (though I got that it wasn't nice). There was a feeling of building up to a moment of drama and yet when we reached one it would take up as little space as possible and in a flash the narrative would shift back to a time of safety and John would again be eating breakfast in a hotel somewhere and contemplating his navel. It was a bit like the way a broadsheet newspaper might cover a tawdry sex scandal. Massive respect to the author for the thoroughness of her research and the confident way in which she transports the reader to 1960s Indonesia, and the way she prompted me to google the history of that area. Without said googling my understanding of the storyline would have been even more woeful than it actually was. So I've been educated, but as a reading experience, a bit dry for me.

    This was possibly my biggest literary disappointment so far this year.I have loved all of Louise Doughty’s previous novels (and not just because I knew her at university), and had been eagerly awaiting this one, especially as her last one, ‘Apple Tree Yard’, had been so good (certainly in the top three or four books that I read that year).Things seem to have gone slightly awry, however, as I found this book to be very heavy going. One of the characteristics of Doughty’s previous books has been her knack of immediately grabbing the reader’s attention and engulfing them entirely in the story. That talent seemed wholly absent here, and I had to make a huge effort to keep pushing through this book. Because it is by her, I will make a point of trying it again in a few weeks (I am, after all a great believer in the idea that one has to be in the right mood for certain books), and hope that I experience a wholly different response then.

    John Harper works as an operative for a black-ops operation. It’s 1998 and he’s staying in a hut in Indonesia in fear of his life. He’s made an error of judgment which most likely has made him a liability to his employer and unfortunately, John is all too familiar with how his employer deals with failures. John has plenty of time to remember his disastrous 1965 Indonesian tour. He obviously has serious regrets about some of his past actions and struggles with his memories. When he meets Rita, another damaged soul, he shares some of his past with her but she knows he hasn’t told her everything. The book bounces back and forth between 1998 and 1965 and when John was a child. John is the son of an Indonesian soldier who the Japanese beheaded and an alcoholic Dutch woman. The happiest time of his life are the years spent with Poppa and Nina and his little half-brother Bud. The author masterfully fleshes out John’s character and shows how his childhood has led him to where he is today. His path has been a long, hard one and I longed for John to find redemption and love. I literally had trouble breathing during the last few pages of this book.I picked this book based on the author alone since I thought “Apple Tree Yard” was an amazing book. I hardly glanced at what the book was about. When I started to read it, I thought I might have made a mistake as it obviously was an espionage book, much like Graham Greene would write, and I’m not particularly fond of that type of book. But the author’s characterization makes her new book an excellent read and one that I highly recommend. It’s thrilling, it’s heart wrenching and it’s powerful.

    This book is about a boy named Bobby Pendragon who saves odd planets with his team/friends. This fifth book out of ten called Black Water is about Bobby with his friends trying to save Eelong a planet of talking cats who are friendly or not so friendly. But some cats are good friends to Bobby who could help fight off a cruel demon, Saint Daine which can transform into anything. Saint Daine is trying to take over Eelong to gain his power to rule other planets as well killing many cats and people. So Bobby is trying to stop Saint Dane. Will he succeed or fail or probably save Eelong but has to save the next planet Saint Daine is after? Those of you who like adventure and action-packed books, this book is a great one for you.

    A really good book with all the twist and irony. I didn't expect that the humans would be treated as "pets" and the animals are the owners.

    I'm all about a good fantasy/adventure series, and I have worked my way through the first five and the beginning of the sixth book of this series. I want to like MacHale's Pendragon books because they revolve around an interesting idea: the ability to travel through space/time/whatever to fight the good fight against an evil man hell-bent on destroying Pendragon's world and all others within Halla. But I just can't get down with it. Does Bobby ever do anything right? Do all of MacHale's female heroines have to come across as shrewish and beastly? Gunny, Spader, Patrick Mac, and Bobby are all fairly laid back, friendly people. Loor, Aja, Kasha: shrews. After a while, the characterization gets frustrating and the fact that Bobby always seems to be doing the absolute WORST thing he possible could gets redundant. I feel like Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is far superior to Pendragon. And with the Percy Jackson movie coming out in a month, kids and teens would do well to choose this more thrilling adventure series.

    Wow. Things really kick into high gear as we visit the territory of Eelong... with Mark's acolytes actually in tow! Saint Dane ups the ante and starts causing even more trouble for Halla by starting to mix things from different territories. There is just SO much happening in this tome that writing it all out would take more than a couple of paragraphs :)Lots of shocks, from the cat-like beings, to the humanoid quigs, to the attempted genocide of the "gars", to the involvement of various acolytes! Does it all blow up in the end? Well, yes and no. But just when you think you're there, twists and turns abound!I'm really impressed that this series has held my attention for so long!

    I love this one,especially the plot twists and the understanding of Halla it presents.

    Bobby travels to the territory of Eelong, which is populated by cat people and humans are slaves in order to save Gunny. I like that roles are reversed and humans are slaves. This one also has Mark and Courtney travelling.
