Well I'm some where between 1/3 to 1/2 way thru it...and I can't believe that one of the characters finally...spoiler a spoiler spoiler that wasn't a spoiler. So cool the spoiler helped out spoiler at spoiler. Wonder why spoiler spoiler funny when spoiler asked about spoiler?

Keeping in mind these books are written for kids...I thought Books I and II were pretty good...didn't care too much for III...so far Book IV seems to be back into form with the first 2.

I'm not much of a fan of those. Read the 1st two. They just seem like slightly better written fanfics. I've read worse, and the wife likes them, which means we'll end up getting the rest some day and I'll end up reading those too.

RE: Lego POTC.

Rented the X-Box version last night (along with LA Noire, review of that once I start playing). Very similar play to the other Telltale Lego Games. Lot darker (screen color) than the other games, I think due to the more "realistic" elements of the environments. Captain Jack has the appropriate ammount of swagger. So far so good, but it is buggy though. It froze up on me last night during the 2nd level, then when I went back this morning to play, it would let me get a piece needed to complete a "puzzle" and get past an obsticle (which I had gotten past the 1st playthrough before it froze). Restarted the level twice, no dice. Next time I try, if it doesn't work, I'm gonna restart my game. Good thing I'm only on the 2nd mission.

Finally started Lego Star Wars III : The Clone Wars...

Got thru the opening on Genosis and the Assaj Ventress level on Christophisis.

Someone...I think maybe Ian...said that this game wasn't as good as previous releases...actually I think the Graphics are better...maybe a little dark...but good.

Gameplay however...still a learning curve here...as they don't exactly flow from the Lego Harry Potter to the SWIII. So far so good.

My Kids love them and I read them when they are done...I just keep in mind they a written for a young audience and take it for what it is. Book 4 is working in a bunch of new Characters...villans and heroes...not that the plot is very deep...will be interesting when they take the story to DL.

On a side note... while looking for Book IV at our local Books-a-Million DS11 was overheard by this elderly lady who said she used to work in WDW and actually knew the person that Ridley Pearson based the character Wayne off of. Said she had worked with him at Splash Mountain. DS wasn't with me at the time or I'd had pumped her for info...but he did call me at work afterward and was just giddy with excitement.

Lego Harry Potter had a few of those. hang-ups.

also had an event...where I was about 96% finished with the game...and my data got wipped...finished a scene...then the next thing I know I'm watching the intro cartoon where Hagrid is delivering Harry to #4 Privet Drive. Talk about being Peanut Buttered off.

We downloaded the first three from Audible and listened to them on the way down to Florida. I haven't read the fourth yet but My daughter just finished it. She mentioned in the end that it was set up perfectly for a fifth book.

My son's been crazy about the Kingdom Keepers series. Read the first one together, but when the next ones came in, he devoured them before we had a chance to read them together. I love to see books fire up the kids imagination so.
