Father’s Day Guest Reviewer: My Dad

My dad was the one who read Harry Potter to me and my sister when we kids, but not long after that I was the one pushing books at him.

For this father’s day, I thought I would get his thoughts on some of the books we’ve both read. So here are my dad’s reviews of six different book series:

The Lord of the Rings 
by J.R.R. Tolkien

Amazon | Goodreads | Indigo

Dad’s Thoughts:

Epic. It is not cool not to like The Lord of the Rings.

A Song of Ice and Fire
by George R.R. Martin

Amazon | Goodreads | Indigo

Dad’s Thoughts:

As epic as The Lord of the Rings. It is not cool not to like Game of Thrones.

The Harry Potter Series
 by J.K. Rowling

Amazon | Goodreads | Indigo

Dad’s Thoughts:

My daughters grew up with Harry, Ron and Hermione…

…But, of all the other characters in the book, Arthur Weasley is the man…. and, definitely, the Dad.

What was Harry thinking that he didn’t name any of his kids after him?


Cinder


The Lunar Chronicles
by Marissa Meyer

Amazon | Goodreads | Indigo

Dad’s Thoughts:

Creative! … and fun. Cinderella’s cinder is grease and Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. Makes perfect sense.

The Raven Boys 
by Maggie Stiefvater

Amazon | Goodreads | Indigo

Dad’s Thoughts:

What is there not to love about the Raven Boys and the idea of ley lines being a bridge between spiritualism and magic and science? Also, I like the way things are described in there:

“The voice was careful, masculine and local; the vowels had all the edges sanded off…..”

“…there was something pregnant about the night…”

Maggie Stiefvater is the fairest of them all.


Twilight


The Twilight Saga 
by Stephenie Meyer

Amazon | Goodreads | Indigo

Dad’s Thoughts:

While I was reading it, it seemed ok.

It is like cheap whisky… you wake up promising to never do that again.


 

Happy Father’s Day!
