I liked the Warriors series a lot, so I thought I'd give this a go. I also wrote this review after also reading the 2nd book, so as not to pre-judge by only the opener. Well... they tried.
-'Erin Hunter' isn't a real person but a team of writers. An additional 3rd writer writes these who didn't work on Warriors... (the dog series doesn't have any o ...more
I don't know. I guess it's because it's about bears, and I find that subject a little boring. I LOVE bears, but I mean, well, I find that bear stories bore me.
It was ok. That's all I can say about. I didn't love it, but it's not the worst either.
Review : Having just learned that Erin Hunter is actually a pen name for three seperate writers makes me less jealous of the fact that they were able to not only wr ...more
Kallik is a polar bear. Strong willed and curious, she and her brother Taqqiq are travelling with their mother Nissa across the great icy plains of the Arctic. They are trying to reach land before the ice melts so that they will be able to survive in the wild for the warmer ...more
I had avoided this series for a long time because I wasn't particularly impressed with Team Erin Hunter's Warriors, but in my never-ending search for good quality anthropomorphic fiction on the same level of awesomeness as good old Watership Down, my kep ...more
The plot is very interesting. At a young age all the bears are separated from there mothers. All of the bears become connected in some way or another. The author does a fantas ...more
This time round, I didn't enjoy it that much; the whole book was kind of samey, with bear cubs wandering around by themselves getting into various lethal situations. The storyline didn't really captivate me at all. However I did enjoy the first few chapters where we got to see the lives of t ...more
Characters - 4/5 - I thought that the characters were good, and there was a good variety of different personalities incorporated into them which made them each more interesting and unique to read about. My favourite would probably be Lusa; she seems to have this sort of humour about her, yet it's ironic considering the situations. I really enj ...more
I don't think I like this as much as I do Warriors, but I might later. The ending got a bit confusing because all three bears' stories rose to different climaxes, so it felt a bit hectic and somewhat weak. The story was good otherwise, though. I love how all three bears have different names for things, espec ...more
In this book erin introduces us to three bears one polar, one black and a grizzly all of which have their own story to tell.
The quest begins tells of how the different types of bears live and of the hardships they come by but at the same time as teaching us about the characters they have also created a good story that doesnt get boring.
I found this to be a sad and depressing story. While it was interesting to view the world from the perspective of three different types of bears, experiencing so much death and abandonment made me wonder what the point was. I realize death is part of nature and animals dying is normal, but to have so many bears die in the fir ...more
Drei Bärenkinder, drei Leben und ihre Geschichte die nicht unterschiedlicher sein kann, dennoch findet man Gemeinsamkeiten, die die Drei verbindet: Das Leben, das Überleben und dessen Abenteuer!
Kallik das kleine Eisbären-Mädchen wird auf dem Weg zum Festland durch den plötzlichen Eisbruch von ihrer Mutter und ihrem Bruder getrennt. Ohne Erfahrung und allein auf ihren Überlebensinstinkt angewiesen, begibt sie sich auf die abenteuerlichen Reise nach ihrem verschollenen Bruder und sich selbs ...more
I can't wait to see how their stories and their journey unfolds.
It's real, it's emotional, it's well done.
I wanna get these books in English and Dutch. They are pretty, they'd look good on the shelf.
I don't know how I feel about the Warriors-series though, first, I was like 'nope, ain't gonna read that'. Now I'm not sure.
I like it much bett ...more
For this book talk I read "The Seekers: The Quest Begins" by Erin Hunter, which is in the sub-genre of anthropomorphic.
This book is set in the real world with different aspects of magic that appear in places. For example, the book is about three different bears who all get separated from their families, which is common in our world today. However, the bears in the book talk to each other in English; it is not possible for bears to converse in human language. For example, Kall ...more
This book is about three bear cubs, Lusa, Kallik and Tolko, three different bear species. They are all on a special journey, were they will face life and death dangers. Will they all make it there alive? Only there next books will tell.
Remember! We ARE talking about a story involving talking bears. This is a story that demands a lot of suspension of disbelief. ...more
Erin Hunter is inspired by a love of cats and a fascination with the ferocity of the natural world. As ...more
