Okay, I'm DONE with this review. I'm disabling the notifications, so if someone comments in it, I'm not gonna now. The level of trolls it has gotten has reached levels I cannot stand anymore. Of course, there are reviews with more trolls, but this is as much as I can endure.

And for you, ignorants who can't accept other people's opinions (better known as "trolls"), why don't you go read one of the many thousands of 5 star reviews instead of coming to criticize an opinion

BEST BOOK EVER!!

(Comment below if you would like to join ThunderClan)

You silently walk through the forest, alone and scared. You are hungry and tired, and are in need of shelter. Suddenly, you come across a young, tortoise shell cat.

"Hello!" she meows. "I'm Ravenwing."
You nod in acknowledgement.
"Let me take you to Eaglestar," she says. "He'll decide if we'll bring you in."

This book is about a house cat who is tired of being a house cat and wants to go into the wild. Then he mets a kitten from a 'clan' and goes with him into the forest and mets the rest of the Thunderclan. This book sounds boring, but really, it is a great book. The author is very descriptive and makes it all very interesting. There a four clans, Thunderclan, Windclan, Riverclan and Shadowclan. The whole series, and there are a lot of them, is about the four clans fighting to stay alive and also t ...more

My kids adore these novels, so I knew it was only a matter of time before I had to read them too. I figured I'd like them. After all, I like middle grade and YA fiction, and cats are cool, and Watership Down was one of my favorite novels of all time. So how could a book about warrior housecats go wrong?

If you're one of those people that hate cilantro, than any salsa with cilantro in it is going to hit your "ick, soapy" button and displease you. This novel hit a lot of my ick buttons. For one, it

This review is by Pippi, guest reviewer, age 1 and a half; tabby cat.

This is a book about cats who live in the wild and they catch mice and eat them and they fight. There are four colonies of cats and one of them is mean and steals the other colonies food.

At first I thought this book was hard to read because even though it's written in English they try to translate cat words into English so it's hard to follow at first until you get used to the cat words.

At the beginning of the story Rusty is a

It was a nice change of pace to go from books about world domination, destruction and lots of deaths and suffering to something much more relaxing and laid back. And though i admit it was a bit weird to read about clans of cats fighting, talking, having vision it was quite fun. Also being a big fan of Jack London in my younger days helped quite a bit.

The story is nicely written, the pacing is also quite right and the story moves at a nice clip never being boring.

So dig right and ignore the mouse

I wanted to give the Warriors books the old college try, seeing as I love both cats and animal stories. I had seen how wildly popular they are among the YA readers in my library, and I do enjoy well-written YA novels. But this one turned out to be more of a furball than a saucer of milk.

Perhaps if I were fifteen years younger, I’d be devouring the Warriors books. But by now, the story contained in Into the Wild seemed trite and contrived; a watered-down version of a hundred other animal adventu

Are you a cat or a dog person?

If you answered cat, this book is for you!

It follows the adventures of a house cat who escapes into the woods and joins a tribe a fierce wild cats who regularly engage in battles for more hunting territory.

The plot has a lot about nobility and it is easy to see parallels between this story and classic stories of knights and squires such as The Knights of the Round Table.

As an English teacher, I have several students who love this book and the entire series it is

This is my daughter Jess' review. Jess is 11.

This review won the Ultimate Book Reviewer Award given by her school's Language Arts teacher.

Do you ever wonder what your pet cat thinks about? Fantasy author Erin Hunter brings you this spine-tingling, action-packed, fantasy adventure novel about wild cats. Explore and experience the land from the eyes of Rusty, a common house cat that dreams about the forest and all its wonders.

One fateful day, Rusty finds himself walking towards Thunderclan camp,

This review is for the all of the Warriors books (not New Prophecy or Power of Three or Omen of the Stars- just the first and original subseries)

These books were amazing. Nowadays it is very hard for me to find a book that I absolutely love. The Warriors series was able to hook me and bring me into the story. These books are about a housecat named Rusty who joins one of the four warrior clans living in the forest, Thunderclan. He makes some new friends, but is faced with a lot of prejudice beca

Es bastante bueno. Me gusta. Se nota que el Clan tiene una organización firme, y Zarpa de Fuego es la cosa más mona del mundo. Lo bueno es que NO te olvidas de que son gatos, ni tampoco son gatos que parecen humanos. Es rarito pero se entiende y atrapa.
Definitivamente lo seguiré.

Warriors in my opinion was a very good book. The plot of the story was very interesting. Every time that something important or astonishing happen it hooks you more into the book. Its begging is okay but the end was good because it tells you things that you didn’t know. The situations that occur in the story are incredible and you will like them even more if you imagined it. The cat in the story wants to change his life to do adventures things and that is maybe one of the reasons the author writ ...more

I finally got around to reading this due to a kindle daily deal which I caved to.

I remember hearing about this series when I was a young crazed cat lover. At the age I currently am, I probably would have given this book three stars, but I know a younger version of me would have absolutely loved it so I gave it an extra star based on that.

Into the wild is about a kitty-pet (cat that lives with humans)
named Rusty who always has dreams of the forest. Then one day when he ventures into the forest he met up with some wild cats. When they offer him to join their clan he decides he should. What happens to Rusty in the wild? Read. O.o

Read this with my 8 year old while my 10 year old continues on with the series. Did not expect a kids book about cats to be so mature and intriguing, but hey, everybody wants to be a cat.

Like Redwall. Minus the quality.

Oh, dear me the Warriors series. To this day I am at a loss as to why I read so many of the books in this series. Did I think it was okay? Was there nothing better to read? Was it peer pressure as my sister was reading the books? Did I have some kind of fascination with the series? Is it maybe because I like cats? Did I enjoy how campy and cliched the books were? You can take your pick from the laundry list, I legitimately have no idea myself. Even while reading t

I found this series while at the library, at first the book looked like cat fights. When I looked at the back it was actually book 3 (Fire & Ice). I found book one and found it interesting. I had 1/3 of the book done by the time I left the library. I finished it the next day. After loving the first book I had to get the sequel. I found it at Barns & Noble along with book three and book four coming out that fall. I was able to finish the entire series within two years. The way the last b

This is the book that started it all for me. I've always loved reading, but this is one of the first books I can really remember absolutely devouring. I believe the series isn't what it used to be after 100+ books, but this first arc and the journey we go on with Fireheart will always remain one of my favorites. I've read it countless times and never get tired of it.

This book is the very first in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. In a forest four clans of wild cats live in constant turmoil. T

For the first book in a never ending series, it's awesome! The explaining of the world of warriors could be a little more spread out and more settle. The plot was very interesting and cool. Firepaw and his friends have no idea the adventures that lie ahead. If your looking for a long, addicting, series then start reading.

I was already reluctant to read it because (sorry) but I'm not a Cat lover. And love the Survivor books by Erin Hunter. I though I'd try it because everyone compares Survivors to Warriors...... But I'm just not interested in this. I Love My Doggie!
