Alanna, the First Adventure (Song of the Lioness)
Review Date: 5/28/2009


This story was very interesting and fast-paced. A little short (I didn't want it to end so soon!) but very enjoyable regardless. I this this would be a great read for fans of Harry Potter-like books or any stories that have that type of world.

I know this book is considered a "classic" but after having read it in high school and trying again as an adult, I still didn't like it. Luckily, this time, I could quit halfway through because I didn't need to take a test afterward. I still find the book to be full of paranoia and preaching. It's like the author tries to say that the more technologically advanced we become, the more "depraved" (according to certain religious teachings) we will be. It fails to point out that humankind, before technology, was full of bigots who liked to burn non-Christians at the stake. This book tries to make everything just seem like the future will be full of bad people because these people rely on science instead of religion. Having said that, I don't agree with the ethics these people have developed in the story, but I just don't see it to be a "masterpiece" when it's full of such paranoid speculation.

Another interesting book in the series. Even though these are written for younger readers, I find them quite enjoyable.

Good addition to the series, although all the "super" powers everyone seems to get in this series gets a little old after awhile. The book also feels like it's borrowing themes from other series that I've read, so it kinda makes me feel like maybe this one has run its course. Other than that, it was an overall funny read.

The author's story telling is getting a bit better than her first two in the series, although sometimes I really have to wonder if an M.E. has this much excitement in their jobs. I guess I've never thought that they would be doing so much detective work out in the field as Scarpetta does.

Kay is also starting to grow on me and not make me roll my eyes as much as usual with her egoism. If this continues into future books is yet to be seen though.

And, a spoiler alert. I can't believe that after how warped Mrs. Harvey acted throughout the book that no one thought to watch her when the suspect was released on arraignment for the minor charged he had gotten caught for. It was like everyone who came into contact with this grieving, yet crazy, woman was blind. I can't believe no one thought she'd pull a vigilante justice like she did.

Overall, good story, though and looking forward to the next one.

This was, by far the best book in the series so far. It was still a bit ridiculous in parts, but compared to the rest of the series, a great story. I didn't roll my eyes nearly as much as usual and was glad I read it. Sookie is still a bit TSTL, since the "bad guys" were fairly obvious, but some of the side characters are fun. Not a keeper, but it passed the time.
