Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret After escaping a deranged dream master and destroying the hidden gateway Leven Thumps and his band of travelers must now journey across Foo and restore Geth from his shape as a toothpick to the right
Tedious Tedious, tedious, tedious Like the first book, The Whispered Secret managed to pick up the pace at the end, but that did not make up for the first three quarters Perhaps it would be a better read as a part of a nightly tradition in which you read a chapter or two to your children That would break up the tedious repetition of the same plotline.I m amazed I feel this apathetic about the book, because I do like the storyline and the setting The writing and the world of Foo itself are magnif [...]
Geared to ages 10 and upStart with a base from J.K Rowling, add a dash of Lemony Snicket, a bit of J.R.R Tolkein and a whole lot of Lewis Carroll, and you may end up with a story much like Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret , book two in a series about 14 year old orphan Leven Thumps who was whisked away from the Reality you and I live in to discover himself in the dreamland of Foo.This second book of this non LDS series by Obert Skye opens in the world of Foo, a place where human dreams are [...]
I was expecting this one to be better than its predecessor I was wrong Very wrong.After getting to Foo, I thought, Okay, now things are gonna get good, since we re done travelling to Foo No, I was wrong Winter gets kidnapped, and what does Leven do Instead of going after her like a good hero should, he keeps tramping on to save Geth Oh wait Geth has a dark side named Ezra He teams up with what s left of the villain from the first book Was I worried or scared No I was confused It s like playing w [...]
Pretty good, but somewhat a hodgepodge of other popular kids fantasy books That being said, my son really enjoyed it, and I appreciated its lack of swear words and such.
This book starts right where the last one left off Again, I enjoy the use of language, and, again, I am not fond of the reliance on fate and coincidence.Leven and his friends are separated when Jamoon, one of Sabine s minions, attacks them with a flock of rovens Leven is torn between rescuing Winter and taking Geth to the turrets where he can reclaim his seat as leader of Foo If they delay in reaching the turrets, Geth will die There is an interesting image of a mountain made of rocks representi [...]
I struggle with Leven Thumps I felt like the first book dragged on forever I started reading the second to see if it was just one of those first book things So far it s a bulldozer, plowing ahead There is just something that keeps me from really enjoying Leven I think part of it is because it seems really disconnected Most books feel like the author had a decent idea of the general outline of the story even if they didn t So far Leven feels like the author sat down, picked some random word, made [...]
Synopsis You must be ready to join Leven Thumps, Clover Ernest, and Winter Frore as they journey across Foo to free Geth from his existence as a toothpick and restore him as the rightful heir to the throne It won t be easy Foo is in chaos, and Leven must overcome several adversaries and survive the Swollen Forest to save his friends and keep hope alive As fate would have it, bad goes to worse when Leven digs up a buried secret one that stalks him, determined to whisper a truth that could be dead [...]
So I approached this book with a little trepidation after reading book one, wondering if it would be worth my time reading Right in the first couple of pages I ran in to a discrepancy when Jamoon was described as being well over six feet tall, but when he was introduced in book one, he was only five ten As I continued in the story, which at times was tedious, I concluded that the reason I don t really get into the story is that it is so far removed from any known reality that I don t have any po [...]
I really want to like these books better than I do The ending of this one was good the pace picked up, there was drama and purpose, and we actually got some useful information about the big picture But the first 3 4 of the book was tedious, too many characters, and the same kinds of plot lines over and over I m tired of the following bad event happens to character, author explains ad nauseum exactly what some new object or event means in Foo, character barely escapes bad event, everything is ok [...]
Talk about overwhelming Seemingly millions of creatures with odd names, exceptionally weird concepts and one to many characters I found it was almost like the author kept having writers block, and so every time he did, he threw in something new for Leven to run into I admit I haven t read book 1 because my library never seems to have it in, so maybe that is why its confusing If you re an Alice in Wonderland person, then you d probably like this, otherwise, its rather a waste of time I perfer boo [...]
I normally don t believe in rating books I don t finish, but I ll make an exception for this book First of all, this author s literary devices drive me absolutely crazy in my opinion, he s just a bad writer Second of all, his ideas are completely off the wall Don t get me wrong I like zany or creative but this guy s books particularly this one read like indigestion induced dreams just when you think it can t get weirder or random, it does I got over 250 pages into this book I read it with my hu [...]
I really loved this book It is a perfect sequel to the first goes along very nicely with it The detail and description are great, and I especially loved the imagination of the writer An great overbook but however, it is a bit overly long If you can get past the length, then you will be fine with it The book itself lived up to my expectations completely.
This was good It is neat to see a Fantasy book that is completely original Obert Skye is an inventor, and it s worth reading to just feel the raw fun creativity Plus, if you don t care what happens to Leven, Winter, and Tim you re really missing something.
This book, although better than the first, is still just a little bit to weird and ADD for me to give it than three stars.
Although I didn t especially like the first book, now the writing is starting to flow and the author s personality is showing through.
Barely got through this book and I couldn t even start on the third book I didn t finish the series.
I LOVE this book It s not as good as the third, but that s just my opinion It doesn t get too good till towards the end.

This series stretches your imagination and I think thats why im still interested in it, the plot of the story is some what interesting and keeps me wanting to find out how it will end In the first book we had a talking walking toothpick that was always upbeat and positive and saying we will let fate lead the way In book two we have another walking talking toothpick, hes a party favor toothpick with a purple tassel, he is very angry and negative and hates the world and everyone in it, he is looki [...]
I have really enjoyed the series so far The character development has been good and it has a good amount of surprises and new developments within the story that keep you entertained throughout the book I really enjoy this series and I cannot wait to see what is next.
This is a children s book so i feel like i have no business really critiquing it But i kinda feel like the villain is jumping around a bit We ll see how the 3rd book goes.
Skye writes like he s painting a beautiful, magical picture and I just want to step in and live in it Cannot wait to read the 3rd book in this series.
All hail the mighty toothpick
Good but a bit disappointed I totally love prefer the first book The first book was sooo good and enthralling that I finish it in less than a week That s why i continued the second book immediately but so far I had been being struggled and don t understand things and am confused a lot I feel like it s not so good as the first one Sometime the story is left for so long and i don t know what s going on, like, Leven has disappeared for 3 chapters and it turned out he s buried or something happen wi [...]
I have mixed feelings about this book It took me a little longer to read I m not sure if it was less gripping than the first, or if it was because I wasn t so desperate for some me time I was a little less than thrilled with the Dennis viewpoints Having Sabine be alive yet dead just seemed like it was stretching a little for storyline I mean, if Leven and Winter and Geth can all die now because they cheated Fate by using the gateway, shouldn t Sabine have the same, er fate And you d think that l [...]
