    For the record listened to this one on audio.This book is what you d expect from Sanderson Good story Nice rapid plot An interesting well orchestrated cosmology And a cool magic system that s central to the story Two things of special note 1 Unlike most of Sanderson s other work, this book is aimed at a YA audience I still enjoyed it But if you re looking for a grim, 800 page tome, this isn t it 2 This book is fairly meta, especially for YA It s first person, but the narrator regularly intrudes [...]

    Also known as The Official Author s Notes for The Way of Kings.Stay with me.The first clue is in Chapter 2 I ve been many things in my life Student Spy Sacrifice Potted plant However, at this point, I m something completely different from all of those something frightening than any of them I m a writer He gives structural tips and a hint as to his personality You may have noticed that I began my story with a quick, snappy scene of danger and tension but then quickly moved on to a boring discus [...]

    Meet MC his name is Al short for Alcatraz it is not his fault the evil librarians use the most famous names of his dynasty for the most notorious prisons The book starts with poor guy being tied to a bunch of outdated encyclopedias and is about to be sacrificed Indiana Jones and the Tempe of Doom way say what you want about the evil librarians, but they sure got style.Chronologically it all started innocently enough Alcatraz was an orphan who was changing foster parents faster than you can say, [...]

    On sale Sept 7 2016 on for 2.99Buddy Read with Buddies Books and Baubles and the Sandersonitus gang.Did you know that Librarians were evil I ve always suspected but didn t know just how deep the conspiracy went until I read this book.What does a writer do when he needs to get the creative juices going and take a break from one of the many serious tombs he is writing Well if he is Brandon Sanderson he writes something completely and utterly different and a bit silly and makes fun of himself a lit [...]

    5 EYE OPENING ST RSHeads up librarian agents might try to get this review taken down at any moment They definitely don t want me exposing all their secretly nefarious ways, but at long last, I give to you the truth Fact 1 This book is NOT written by Brandon Sanderson This is NOT fantasy Don t be fooled It is written by Alcatraz Smedry grandson of Oculator Dramatus, Leavenworth Smedry His editor only made him use Sanderson s name to keep away librarian attention This is Alcatraz s autobiography, [...]

    Think Harry Potter only with evil Librarians but a lot better Although it s obviously written for young readers, it was still entertaining for adults The story was fast paced and very humorous The characters are fun and relatable as far possible in this type of story It s a quick read and well worth it.Perfect for kids I think it would be a great bedtime story that parents could read with their kids If anyone still does that.

    Big fan of Brandon Sanderson It s always interesting to think about the magic system Sanderson uses in whatever work you re reading He always changes things up Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians is no exception In this fun read, Alcatraz s talent is his uncanny ability to break things While this might not seem like part of a magical system at first, keep reading I enjoyed the book and plan to get back to this series But maybe after I read Oathbringer

    5 of 5 stars at the BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2016 02 22 sI ve been a terrible Brandon Sanderson fan Seriously, how else to explain for the many years it took me to finally read his Alcatraz series Mea culpa, it was complete negligence on my part, and I am sorry But in my own defense, these books do fall a little outside my purview After all, very rarely do I dip my toes into the Children s Middle Grade category, and they did seem far removed from the author s other work By his own admission, [...]

    Brandon Sanderson can write an instruction manual for a lawnmower and I ll read it I only started reading the Alcatraz series after I ve run out of Sanderson s adult and YA fantasy books to read, and these books quickly became bite sized guilty pleasures on account of how hilarious and ridiculous they are In the Hushlands those Librarian controlled nations such as the United States, Canada, and England this book will be published as a work of fantasy Do not be fooled This is no work of fiction, [...]

    Bookwraiths
    Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths The first adventure in the young adult fantasy series Alcatraz The Evil Librarians was one which I and my youngest son read as a bedtime story As a fan of Rick Riordan s Percy Jackson series and Mac Barnett s Brixton Brothers mysteries, I knew the novel was a can t miss with the little Bookwraith, and I wasn t wrong This fast paced, funny tale by Brandon Sanderson bringing than a few smiles to my face and eliciting many a hysterical giggle from my son, which m [...]

    4 A buddy read with the young at heart folks at BBB This sucks I had written a review, I had made it funny and adorable, as well as recommended this book not only to the middle graders for whom it was written, but also to all those who enjoy a fantastical adventure written with such wonderful flare and wit, that you have no choice but fall in love with it and wonder why the heck did you wait so long to get to this brilliant series I had written it, but somehow it has gotten lost in the twilight [...]

    So, when people try to give you some book with a shiny round award on the cover, be kind and gracious, but tell them you don t read fantasy, because you prefer stories that are real Then come back here and continue your research on the cult of evil Librarians who secretly rule the world.Will it ever come a day when I ll give Brandon Sanderson less than 5 stars I don t think so.Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians was so much fun to read I think the humor was my favorite part of this book The main [...]

    Only Alcatraz Sanderson can take something as mundane as sand and an orphan klutz and turn it into this amazing piece of work First Sentence So, there I was, tied to an altar made from outdated encyclopedias, about to get sacrificed to the dark powers by a cult of evil Librarians.I really enjoyed this, the humor is spot on, the sarcasm and quips make you laugh out loud The plot is lively, entertaining and full of twists and turns that you might or might not have predicted And of course one of th [...]

    5 stars for pure entertainment value I laughed my ass off reading this book Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians is about Alcatraz Smedry, an orphan whose neglectful grandfather lets him wither away in foster homes for the first 13 years of his life Dumbledore much The Smedry family is infamous for the talents that grace each individual member Alcatraz has an extraordinary talent for breaking things Because of this talent foster families are quick to give him up, resulting in Alcatraz being passe [...]

    4.5No le a un middle grade tan divertido desde Percy Jackson aunque es m s sencillito que este, le faltan subtramas De momento Tiene un pu ado de personajes divert disimos y no por eso menos interesantes, y una historia conspiranoica que te har disfrutar pregunt ndote y si respecto a tu propia realidad Solo Brandon Sanderson, aka hago que dibujar con tiza en el suelo se convierta en un combate trepidante pod a ingeniar un mundo en el que los bibliotecarios son los amos del mal que ocultan la ver [...]

    I ve said it once before and I ll say it again That is all you need to know I once read that this was written for middle grade and then forgot about it because middle grade Recently I saw it again and realised that I just had to give it a chance because how can you not read everything your favorite author has ever written 200 odd pages later followed by the sound of a mic drop takes a humble bow

    When Alcatraz received his inheritance on this thirteenth birthday, he never expected it to be a bag of sand But then again, his parents named him Alcatraz, so it s no wonder they left him something bizarre Turns out, it s no ordinary bag of sand, and Alcatraz is no ordinary orphan boy He s about to embark on an adventure where a cult of evil Librarians rule the world, and the only way he can stop them is to venture into the depths of a labyrinthine library armed with a pair of eyeglasses and a [...]

    If I was a middle grader, this would definitely be a 5 star read What a funny, surreal and original story It really is very charming Evil baddies Librarians and a hilarious cast of heros who have talents that you have never seen before, battle it out in and I hope this isn t a spoiler a libraryAlcatraz the hero of our story talks directly to the reader in a way which is very funny and engaging As a teacher myself, I also approve entirely of the way in which Sanderson almost tutors the reader in [...]

    We met Brandon Sanderson at a book reading signing yesterday Such fun He seemed very nice and thoroughly excited about his creations Younger than I d expected and also very normal but fun Most people were there for his other adult fantasy books and the majority of the QA revolved around his taking over the Wheel of Time series now that its original author has passed away I think, for this reason, he was extremely excited when we showed up with a copy of Alcatraz for him to sign p I told him I or [...]

    I m shelving this as fantasy because, well I don t want to call the attention of the Librarians down upon my head They re mean and will probably try to kill me for letting the cat out of the bag This book was banned, and for good reason Hopefully, they ll just look at the shelf tags, and not the actual review I don t want to be silenced Alcatraz Smedry writing as some Brandon Sanderson guy as a cover tells his story, and quite a story it is Librarians have been keeping us all in the dark about t [...]

    This book reads like the author is super successful and doesn t ever need to write again, but he lost a bet or something and is forced to churn out a book It comes across to me as smug To illustrate, here are some of the author s own words strewn throughout the story Are you annoyed with me yet Good I ve worked very hard Honestly, authors can be so self indulgent Authors write books for one, and only one, reason Because we like to torture people Now, if you re ever writing a story such as this, [...]

    Wanda s Summer Carnival of Children s Literature Cute, funny, and smart Add in a coterie of Evil Librarians, plus magical skills acquired through the wearing of lenses i.e glasses Also very meta, in that the author talks directly to the reader A lot.Of course, working in libraries, I was predisposed to love this Although I shouldn t I should be suppressing this work, like a good Evil Librarian.I would recommend it for children who are dismayed about needing glasses I think it would be an encoura [...]

    5 Stars This one is a bit of an acquired taste I loved it, but beware because this one might annoy you if you are not familiar with Sanderson s sense of humor

    Duffy Pratt
    I was a little disappointed I love the name of this book, and in my opinion, other Sanderson books aren t too far away from Young Adult, especially the Mistborn series So I didn t expect as much pandering and condescension as there is here Mostly, this felt to me like an awkward mash up of the set up of Harry Potter, the narration of Lemony Snickett, and the slightly annoying voice of Percy Jackson And it felt to me like Sanderson was not comfortable in this vein, and trying too hard, especially [...]
