    Anddddddd I m done This ll be my last Patrick Carman book, and much to my surprise Stargazer actually is asolid finish Still not good enough to sway my generally low opinion of this series as a whole, but better than several of its predecessors.There s still something downright nonsensical about the worldbuilding of this series Nothing quite fits together elements of geography, culture, and technology seem to serve the plot rather than create a sense of believable atmosphere The La Anddddddd I m done This ll be my last Patrick Carman book, and much to my surprise Stargazer actually is asolid finish Still not good enough to sway my generally low opinion of this series as a whole, but better than several of its predecessors.There s still something downright nonsensical about the worldbuilding of this series Nothing quite fits together elements of geography, culture, and technology seem to serve the plot rather than create a sense of believable atmosphere The Land of Elyon, as a place, feels cobbled together and unreal allegorical at best, which I suppose is the truth of the matter.Plot wise, same deal plot just happens around the characters, rather than them actively having to take part and move it forward Stargazer s stakes are high, but the antagonist s eventual defeat has literally nothing to do with any of the main characters of the story They feel less like compelling protagonists andlike puppets, moved steadily along a path by authorial interference The fact that this book contains an instantaneous romance from first sight to marriage in less than four days doesn t help at all There were a few elements that I did like here, though, which bumped it up from one star to two The nature of the titaular Stargazer was one In retrospect, given where Carman lives which is also my former hometown I should have expected it As it was, it was a fun bit of nostalgia with a fantasy twist view spoiler Though the sheer scale of the Stargazer is a bit beyond belief At one point a character mentions that its envelope volume is 600,000 cubic feet for comparison, a balloon designed to fly over the top of Mt Rainier has a volume of 245,000 cubic feet, and it is enormous The good news is that Stargazer is absolutely big enough to carry everything it s supposed to carry, especially since unlike our hot air balloons it doesn t need heavy liquid fuel but picturing it is nigh impossible for me hide spoiler Also there was a great sense of closure to Alexa s arc, even if it did lean a littleon reveals related to her heritage than I would have liked Carman gave her a pretty lovely emotional arc, despite the lackluster plot The ending was a little pat, but it was surprisingly satisfying.Overall, I still don t think this series is well, good It s a visibly novice effort, lacking a lot of the coherence and polish that apracticed writer might have brought to it However, at the end of the day, there s a simple truth about books for young readers whatever keeps them reading is good, so I suppose if this series floats some kid s boat does that qualify as a pun , thenpower to them As an adult, I m content now to wash my hands of them

    There is a bit of action and a small mystery with a few surprises Most of the story is about the new location and defeating the monster seems secondary It was an interesting location It s different from the other locations in this series The instalove was too much I do like the characters, but they should have takentime Everyone is happy in the end, so I guess that s what matters.

    Now that I ve finished reading this series over again I have decided that it s still good but not as good as before Alexa is preparing for the last battle with Abaddon She is at the Five Pillars Here she and Yipes meet some new friends Together they fight and when it s all done they all move on to better adventures.


  6. Lil& Lil& says:

    Great ending for the pentalogy It is an excellent book for children, however as an adult I can see a lot of plot holes and simplistic solutions of certain situations and problems, which I do not remember carig about when I read it as a child But in overall, it was a cool adventure.

    I ve always loved the Land of Elyon books, because they are kind of subtle in the beginning, as Alexa s adventure is just beginning, and then there is a very exciting and tense part where it gets you on the edge of your seat and wondering, What s going to happen next and it always ends up different then you think it will Finally, the end is always happy, and it brings everyone together with friendship, and love These are great books I congratulate Patrick Carman for making such a readable, I ve always loved the Land of Elyon books, because they are kind of subtle in the beginning, as Alexa s adventure is just beginning, and then there is a very exciting and tense part where it gets you on the edge of your seat and wondering, What s going to happen next and it always ends up different then you think it will Finally, the end is always happy, and it brings everyone together with friendship, and love These are great books I congratulate Patrick Carman for making such a readable, wonderful, heart warming series
