Ike I had no choice but to keep moving to finish But I can t complain because the pacing is largely perfect I didn t get to breathe but I WAS ALSO NEVER BORED NOT EVEN also never bored not even a momentThe ending was basically perfect I m a big fan of getting to see the characters older and reflective and getting to know what happened to all of the characters not ust the primary ones Plus I feel like I ve read too many similar books that ust end the book two pages the climax and don t even bother with this bit Again I probably would ve enjoyed it if it was even longer but that s not a fault with itThis is definitely a book that deserves a lot attention It s rare to find something so utterly perfect that manages to remind me of other things I love without feeling derivative i don t know how I heard about this book but I had it reuested out of the library and in my hands within a week And it sat in my library bag for almost three weeks while I read through my ever enjoyable Jacueline Carey series a couple mangas and even a romance novel Finally I only had this strange book Prince Ombra left to read The cover on the copy I had showed a rocky shore with two ospreys in the foreground and very tiny off in the distance two people sitting on the rocks The story looked like it could have been a 1950 s book about two kids and their summer adventures or maybe a nature guide for the Northern seacoastWhat it did not look like was the explanation of all evil and good in the world and their eternal battleI loved it from the first few pages where the unknown later you find out storyteller talks about how when all people are born an angel puts its finger on our lips and tells us to not say what we know about our after previous lives which is why we all have clefts on our upper lips But every few generations there is someone born without that cleft a great warrior who remembers all his past lives and knows that he will someday battle Prince Ombra who causes all evil in the worldAt the time of this story the great warrior happens to be a lame 8 year old boy named Bentley His friends are a girl who cannot speak and an elderly psychologist who happens to love mythology and recognizes what Bentley is and his great destinyI loved the great explanation of why there is evil and how we have always had warriors fighting for us I loved how the author tied many cultures mythologies together into one great epic And I loved that the great battle this author tied many cultures mythologies together into one great epic And I loved that the great battle this around had such an unlikely hero and was focused on a small town and its residentsI couldn t give it 5 stars however because the story seemed really rushed towards the end and you had to rely on the epilogue to explain too much Overall I am so glad I found this book I still don t know why I would have reuested it and I hope everyone who loves epic battles gets a chance to read it THE CURRENT VERSION IS ABRIDGED ONLY READ THE OUT OF PRINT EDITIONS I bought the current edition for friends and was disappointed and saddened to learn they really didn t like it But after discussing the book with them things started to sound fishy I checked out the edition I had bought for them and realized it had been abridged and bowlderized to make it into children s or young adult fiction While the original book is not inappropriate for young adults it is not written as young adult fiction The abridgement of the current edition is haphazard and leaves plot holes and is above all unnecessary So do yourself a favor get Name is Prnce Ombra When Prince Ombra arises a hero is called upon to battle him One day when Bentley is grown he will be that heroWhat Bentley doesn't know is that his one day is tod. ,

ray bradbury think 
Bradbury Think Something Wicked Way Comes though it is nothing like that other than normal everyday life and the horrors it can contain Horror seems worse when it s people you know and see everyday and the small things they do to each other stepping only slightly over the line but causing horriffic results i found a really old copy of this book at a garage saleit had this crazy bright opalescent cover and looked like a completely trashy airport buy that would live next to all the Sword of Shanara books But it s one of the most interesting looks at heroes and evil I have ever read It even held up under re readings It s like the last Harry Potter book before Harry Potter was even written Bentley Ellicot is and will probably forever be my favorite hero of all time He is an unlikely hero in that he has learned spells from the crabs and is able to speak to animals however most people see him as a cripple He is young and kind and helpful and he is born knowing many things specifically his destinyHis heart has been that of a thousand different heros including King Authur and Homer and that with this gift he has been given he must defeat the essence of evil in the world Prince Ombra Though he is considered peculiar by the inhabitants of his home town he makes two friends one of which is Sally DrakeSlally a girl who speaks in a nonsense lang I read it in high school thanx Michelle I have purchased copies of this book than any other book I loan it out and never seem to get it back Top 5 of the greatest books I have read ever I ve read this book probably three times I still have it might well read it againNothing like itKids communicating in ways you only dream is possible or might hardly not remember Sub verbal With geniusGreat drama Life defying twists A real sleeper Who knows about this bookOtherwise the guy s a political writer from Washington DC Go figure There are some books that ust resonate deep inside of you This is one such book for me It incorporates arthurian legend and you can never go wrong with that Someone once loaned me It incorporates arthurian legend and you can never go wrong with that Someone once loaned me copy of The Key How to Write Damn Good Fiction Using the Power of Myth by James N Frey It was one of those books that I devoured in one sitting I recently added it to my eReader and look forward to reading it againThe reason I bring up James Frey s book in this review is because that is EXACTLY what Prince Ombra is DAMN GOOD FICTION that utilizes the power of myth to tell a familiar story in a contemporary settingI still remember the first time I saw this book The opalescent cover gleaming in the afternoon sunlight caught my eye and I took it down from my mother s bookshelf I couldn t have been than 13 years old The story left me absolutely breathless and to this day when I reach the last few pages of the last chapter I still find myself in tears usually because I have forgotten that scene and it s like reading it for the first time all over again Sadly this book is no longer in print I managed to hunt down 5 copies in trade paperback and still have two in my library which you will pry from my cold dead hands The YA version is watered down and edited to the point that The World has found its new heroThe problem Bentley Ellicott is only a kidBentley has secret powers And he's going to need them Bentley is a hero the thousand and first to be exact in. Felt it wasn t worth keeping so that copy was forwarded on But if you do manage to find the original unabridged version in a second hand bookshop charity shop or garage sale snap it up but do so calmly we don t want to start a sale snap it up but do so calmly we don t want to start a hold it close to your heart and get ready to experience something marvelous Sometimes it s stunning to read a book that s this good and yet is out of print and not exactly well knownTo some degree it book that s this good and yet is out of print and not exactly well knownTo some degree it easy to understand why it wasn t terribly successful it s a book about children that isn t really for them I realised early on that this book in many ways reminded me of Stephen King but the first thing that struck me was that it approached writing about children the same way he does It s a book for adults who still remember what being a child was likeIt s like Stephen King in other ways whether by coincidence tribute or accident The New England setting is an obvious connection as is the focus on the lives of the people in the town and how the encroaching evil brings out the worst in everyone There Are Lots Of Other Little lots of other little that remind me of Stephen King but this book is unmistakably Stephen King esue though I admit that some of the best comparisons to Prince Ombra actually come after its releaseBut I was often glad that I wasn t reading an actual Stephen King book as he can be pretty merciless Sure Helga and Charlie s deaths are right up his alley but he probably would ve killed half the town or had it burn to the ground See Salem s Lot for proof of both I fear that Slally might ve suffered an even worse fate at the hands of Steve Slattery or that Bentley would ve had to have actually died at the end There s no way both of their parents would ve survived It was nice to have good feelings at the end and with Stephen King happy endings ust aren t a thingThere are also what are even likely direct allusions to Tolkien with the Eye of Sauron or less actually appearing along with some Stone of Ra and One Ring parallelsIt s the sort of thing I dig a lot A lot of my favourite fiction references other fiction notably Stephen King s The Dark Tower series basically runs on references to other fictional worksIn many ways Slally is the real star of this book although maybe that s only half true The real star of this book is Bentley and Slally s friendship Friendship is often neglected in stories in favour of romance It s rare that you get a pure POWER OF FRIENDSHIP narrative that doesn t end up being romantic And romantic narratives are fine but there s a lot to lifeThere s something about their mutual connection and loyalty to each other that is emotionally compromising and the whole thing kind of hinges on it I mean the book is about Bentley vs Ombra but only technically And in the end that was an existential battle rather than a traditional heroic battleI also think there was something wonderful about both Bentley and Slally being disabled characters and I felt like that aspect was handled well or at least better than what I m used to seeingThe supporting characters were also largely interesting especially Dr Kreistein I ll admit that Willybilly was an odd character who seemed particularly modeled on Willie Nelson It s not a problem with the book but man it s a weird choiceWhat is a problem with the book Not much Occasionally I felt like the book could ve taken a moment to breathe here and there but it s not that anything was missing Just that I was enjoying the book and felt A long line of heroes that has stretched all the way back to antiuity Heroes like Arthur and Hercules And now BentleyThat's because there is an evil in the world that never dies Its.
