I like how the plot got more serious in this one. Can't wait to start next one.

Prica pocinje da se zahuktava i postaje malo mracnija. Mada Thornina prolost je malo kliseizirana al dobro. U svakom slucaju zabava se nastavlja :)

This is the third book of the bones series. The series is a graphic novel Fantasy series. In this book Fone Bone and Thorn are having really strange dreams and Grandma Ben is reacting oddly when she hears them talking about it. She then reveals a secret to them that changes things. They may have to leave the farm for ever.

Mean while Smiley and Phoney are with Lucius at his bar working of a debt they owe. Then Phoney makes a bet with Lucius. The steakes are high. Who could be the better bartender

I find this volume difficult from a ratings perspective. If you are reading all of the volumes back to back, as you should be, there is nothing wrong with this volume. We get a huge reveal, rat creatures being rat creatures, and Phoney's bar bet with Lucious kicks off. It's a fast and entertaining volume that propels you into the next volume.

But by itself... if you were reading these as they were released and had to wait what would seem like forever between volumes... I can see this o

I didn't get into this installment as much, although I enjoyed the Moby Dick spoof. This volume ends with a possibly interesting setup for the next book's storyline, but I find I am not interested enough to continue. The information comes too slowly for me and without another cow race (see Volume 2), there is nothing to keep me in it for the long haul.

I was slightly disturbed that Thorn, the main female character, seems to be wearing less and less clothing as the series goes on. Does the writer

This is the third book in the Bone series by Jeff Smith. We all read it independently and I'm so glad that our girls like the story. The story is fun, exciting, and full of drama and intrigue. We are all hooked!

My husband enjoyed collecting comic books when we were a lot younger and when I would accompany him on his trips to the comic book store, I would often pick up an issue of Bone. I thought the story was very engaging and dramatic and I loved the little guy.

Now that our girls are older and

I was unable to get the chance to read the first Bone book, so I skipped straight to the third book. It was a little hard to follow some of the topics they talked about but I slowly started to understand what was happening. I enjoyed reading this book a lot, it had some funny moments and also some very serious moments. I like the illustrations a lot, they were ver clear and made the book so much better. While I was reading this book I found it a bit weird how some random characters came in and o ...more

This volume kicks up the dream factor a notch. I find the dream sequences to be more traditional fantasy then the rest of the story, except for the Moby Dick inspired dream chapter.

Phone Bone is moving alone with the main story. Phoney Bone is still trying to be as shifty as possible. Smily Bone is still dim. The rat creatures are still causing trouble for everyone. I feel this will be a common yet effective pattern throughout the whole story arc.

Hasta ahora, el mejor tomo en lo que va de la serie, sin duda alguna. Si no llega a las cuatro estrellas es por algún bajón narrativo y algún que otro caprichito mío. Sigue manteniendo el espíritu inocentón y cándido de las primeras aventuras, pero la sombra del pasado ya va cubriendo a los personajes, varias verdades salen a la luz y la cosa se está poniendo jodida de verdad. Lástima que un par de las "revelaciones" me parecieron predecibles en el mal sentido de la palabra: si Smith tenía ganas ...more

Thorn learns her grandmother's a lying two-face with a hidden past. Gasp! :O Well, it's true, but it's not that bad. Grandma Ben's been protecting Thorn and keeping Thorn's past hidden as well- even from Thorn herself. Only now, Thorn knows and she doesn't know how she feels about what she's learned. She's despondent and honestly, that bores me. As they walk off into the sunset- or flee that impending army of rat creatures, however you want to look at it- I can only hope she sucks

3.5 stars.
MUCH more enjoyable than Vol. 2: The Great Cow Race. Phoney's hubris gets expressed via a more viable scheme (no, not the dining chickens!). Smith does a nice job of spooling out the revelations about Thorn, the valley's history, and the grand scheme of his fictional world. Plus, i loved the brief view of the hierarchy of the forces of evil.

A possible important quibble, but probably just a misunderstanding on my part. Thorn can't be any older than 13, right? So all the peacemaking that

This 174 page book was an easy read. Since it is a graphic novel the story is very easy to understand, but it was a fun and enjoyable novel. The story is about the three bone cousins, who are at the moment living on a farm in a new atmosphere away from their home in Boneville. Since these novels are a series, it was a bit difficult to understand the novel since I haven't read the first stories. The Bone cousins are staying at Thorn and her Grandmas house. Fone Bone and Thorn have been having str ...more

In the aftermath of the Great Cow Race (which included both Phoney Bone becoming indebted to Lucius Down and Gran'ma Ben's farm attacked by the rat creatures), the bigger story picks up. Fone Bone and Thorn (Gran'ma's granddaughter) have had strange dreams about dragons. They eventually confront Gran'ma about Thorn's past and who she really is, which is an amazing revelation.

Meanwhile, Phoney makes a bet with Lucius--they divide Lucius's tavern in half and whoever can make more profit wins. Phon

Phew! I read this third volume so quickly that I'm not sure what to write. I know this installment was good: it is a tense, fast-paced read. Secrets are revealed and the reader is left wondering about many other things. I'm glad I'm not reading the series when it was first published. It's nice to be able to pick up the next volume when volume 3 leaves you dying to know what will happen next.

This is the third book to the Bone series. In this book the cow race in the valley has just ended, and the villagers are really mad at Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone for rigging the race. At the same time the rat creatures are trying to find the three Bone cousins. These two problems make the lives for the three Bone cousins much harder, because not only are they hated everywhere they go, they must also try to stay alive as the rat creatures are trying to hunt them down in the valley. Later once th ...more

Volume Three picks up where the last volume ended, with Phoney and Smiley in debt to Lucius and Fone staying behind. After a bit on questions not being answered and mysteries appearing, some answers started to appear, like who Thorn and her Gran'ma Ben really are, a bit more on why Gran'ma hates the dragon, and some other things that deepen the mythology. Plus, Lucius and Phoney make a bet to see who can run a tavern better.

The series takes a more serious and ominous note here, but there's also

In this exciting new addition to the Bone series, Grandma Ben must confess to thorn of her royal heritage and that she is very powerful. Meanwhile smiley and phoney bone continue their greedy ways on trying to work off their debt to Mr. Down, a bar tender. This book is for all ages both old and young because it is exciting to keep the kids entertained but it also has some hilarious parts that you must read. What I liked about this book was it is very action packed and funny at the same time. I r ...more

Continuously referring to prior events and with little character explanation , Eyes of the Storm would not be easy to follow by readers who have missed the first two books.Blob-shaped, white, talking creatures and hayseed farmers who use eggs as currency tell the tale of attacking rodents, fierce storms and a dragon that wends his way into dreams. Jeff Smith has created a story that is part dark fairy tale and part slapstick comedy. In the third installment of the series, Fone Bone’s cousins tra ...more
