Not a fan of the animorphs series as a kid (though the covers were really cool), but this series really grabbed me. It's full of Gods and monsters in a culmination of science fiction and fantasy. I wanted to spend my waking hours in Everworld, well. . . the less life threatening parts of it anyway. The idea of having an other-self run on "auto pilot" while the characters are away bothers me a little, but the rest of the mechanics of the story are pretty sound and fluid.

After reading the first 11 books, I couldn't wait to find out how it was all going to end. For most part, I liked most of this book. It finds the group traveling to the fortress of the dwarves. There they have to try to talk them into digging a tunnel to be able to sneak into Hel. While all this is taking place they find themselves all fading in the real world except April, who is fading in Everworld. The realize that they have to decide which world they really want to be in because the other wi...more
I feel generous giving it 2 stars. The book was great, but as i was nearing the end, i kept thinking, only 20 pages left, how are they going to end this... 10 pages can she end this in 10 pages... 5 pages... 2 pages...then no more pages. wtf! this serie was one of the best i've read in forever. even this book was awesome up until the last 2 pages. i'm insulted. this book had so much potential but the ending was shit. So much more could have happened, and we don't even know for sure how it ends....more
I love these books so much!
I read them like at least 10 times xD
The way those 4 wonderful idiots learn and evolve, the fun and the adventures they have. Honestly, I fell in love with them. Well, exept for Senna...I hate that girl ^^

It was so sad, to know that the series would end. I couldn't imagine it. When I read the book I was left empty. I do like the ending, as an ending of A book. It all makes sense. But NOT as the end of the whole series! There is so much more they have to do! The fight j...more

A good ending, the last two books of the series were very good. That said, the ending felt incomplete. There were a few times that characters did things that they just wouldn't do (the author pointedly says they cannot change who they are multiple times but suddenly they do change) and they never accomplished what they had been working towards throughout most of the series. The mini plot from this book finished and instead of finding out what went down with the "big picture" plot, it just kind o...more

At the end, I wanted to throw the book across the room. Yes, it ends satisfactorily, but is that all she can give us - hope? How about something resembling a conclusion to the massive war going on and not just the characters' decision?

One of the most disappointing endings to a series I have ever experienced.

I had finished Animorphs before I finished The Everworld series. compare to the Animorphs, Everworld's story is much more mature.

Applegate did a great job cooking the fantasy world. I love how she joined the famous myth into one world. I love how she managed to gave each race their general personality. but even more than the fantastic Everworld material, I even more found of the main character problem of whatether they prefer the old dull boring life or the life threatening adventerous new one....more

Finally finished with the whole series!

This last book really picked up and tied a fairly neat bow on everything. The last couple books have been up and down, but I loved this one.

I'm glad the Scroll of the Gods was merely mentioned and never really used. Unless I really wasn't paying attention, that little world-breaker was never used to its potential, which is good. I'm glad for the little newspaper article at the end to tie everything together.

The one thing I didn't like is that I wanted to...more
These books are something of an enigma to me. I've met very few who've heard of Everworld, and even fewer who have read them. After losing track of them for the better part of a decade, I finally purchased the series in its entirety this year, and I was not disappointed. For one, the books are far more adult than one would be lead to believe, so they were just as good now I'm older as they were when I discovered them at 12. Applegate has such a clever way of weaving together cultures and mytholo...more

I knew when I started this series that the ending was going to be unsatisfactory. I was warned that it didn't end 'properly' and as a result, I was kind of dreading this book. However, to my surprise I actually was satisfied with the ending. Yes, there are a lot of things still left unanswered. But it feels like that's okay. When I finished this book, I felt like the characters were going to continue on without me and that I knew they'd be okay in the end. I can understand why it might be frustr...more

The final chapter.

I was a little disappointed with how anticlimactic this book was in comparison to the others. It did work to conclude the series, but still it felt like nothing really happened before it ended. I would have like to see an actual ending.

Fleeing the massacre at Merlinshire, and with Senna dead, April and the gang find themselves in need of a plan. Their presence in the real world is slowly fading away and with the destructive force of the Sennites lose in Everworld something ha...more
I started Everworld years ago, in highschool - with a love of religious mythology, it was easy to get pulled into Everworld's scenery and politics.

Years later, I've finally finished the series, and a fantastic series it's been. I make a point of trying to avoid spoilers with reviews, so unfortunately there's little that I can say, but it's at least worth saying that the end of Everworld was not what I expected. Realistically, it was better. And it's absolutely fitting that April closes out the...more

A truly brilliant take on mythology. For anyone who has ever been a fan of the religions of yore you'll be enthralled with Applegate's world of aliens and gods. My favorite series when it first came out and still one of my favorite series. The beginning of the first book is a bit difficult to get into, but once you get past that it is simply phenomenal. Applegate creates an entire world within Everworld while drawing enough from our own world so as not to entirely alienate or confuse the audienc...more
that was a terrible ending. very anti climactic
Lindsey Meyer
Wow, this final installment of the Everworld series was quite incredible. I love how she ended the series, although she left room for more! I always hoped she would do a continuation but I guess she was just trolling us fans and has decided to leave it at that, lol.

Fantastic series. One I've enjoyed reading again and again. I've gone throught the entire series at least 3 times.
So the end of this series? The end of this series is bad. I heard that there were supposed to be an additional six or twelve books, or something like that, and that accounts for why everything gets tied up so. suddenly. here. Nevertheless, much as I love the series and the characters, a good book this is not.
Wes Bishop
Amazing series. The whole concept Applegate approaches in the series is fantastic. The commentary on religion and the realistic nature of the characters (I love Applegate's characters) is enough to make these series and the Animorphs a must read for everyone. Love the ending of the series.
Grrr. how can the series end like this. There are so many unawnsered quetions. That almost makes me feel that reading the whole series was a waste since there are still so manny questions that i will never know the awnser to.
Arbré Écorce
It was clearly not meant to end the series. It was good if there were more books coming but it was not an ending. 11 have a better ending. It didn't have a bad ending it just didn't have an ending.
This ending disappoints me every time I read it. Probably in part due to the fact this series could and should have continued, and without giving anything away it is annoying.
Disappointed at the ending. Almost the entire series was based around removing Ka Anor from Everworld, and the series ends before they even go to attack him.
Jackie Krasuski
I wish these books would have all been put into one big novel. They are fantastic reads, leaving you begging for more at the end of each story line.
Pročitao kompletan serijal - 10 na hrvatskom i 2 na eng jer nisu nikada prevedene.

Vrlo simpatičan YA fantasy
