The Capture (Guardians of Ga'Hoole #1)
Author Kathryn Lasky lays the groundwork for an owlish tale of good versus evil in this first adventurous installment of Guardians of Ga'Hoole.
After little Soren, a barn owl, finds himself pushed out of Mum and Da's nest, he's captured by two ruthless hench-birds and taken to the St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls. Now a mere owl slave to r
LRN: I think a solid five. It was very good; better than the movie even.
Mum: So what happens in this book?
LRN: Soren is pushed out of his hollow by his brother, Kludd.
Mum: Ugh, that's an ugly name.
LRN: I know. It's a bad name. No, two ds.
Mum: So what else?
LRN: Then he's taken off to St Aegolios, academy for orphaned owls. And there are six rooms. One of them is Pelletireum, which is disgusting, actually.
Mum: Why is it disgusting?
LRN: They have to pick o...more

Yes, it's scandalous. But the honest thing to do.
I was looking for religious allegory in this, whether it was heavy religious (Like Narnia), or anti religious (like Golden Compass) and found that a case could be made for either or both. In so doing, it lands right in the middle, so there's no need to worry about it getting preachy.
Biasanya burung hantu itu kan kisahnya selalu seram-seram, tapi di sini petualangan Soren dan Gylfie seru banget. Gak seram sama sekali.
Ternyata jadi burung hantu pun banyak banget yah peraturannya. Pake upacara segala. Upacara Tulang, Daging. Belajar terbang. Dan lain-lain. Kocak.
Aku suka banget sama tokoh Soren huehehe... Soren layaknya anak kecil biasa yang kepingin tahu lebih banyak tentang segala hal.
Nanya mulu gitu...

As if Erin Hunter's attempt at cat warriors wasn't a sign that animal fiction is not for the weak of pen, Kathryn Lasky's Guardians of Ga'hoole cements that theory. Granted, whereas the warrior series was just all around bad, this one is slightly better. And I do mean "slightly". Not nearly enough to justify 15 books and certainly not enough to suggest to anyone to read this series.
Why, then, can I look at my bookshelf and know with absolute certainty there a...more

Critique by Eva Fenningdorf
In the beginning of the story Soren the barn owl is pushed out of his family’s nest by his big brother Kludd when his parents are not home. He cannot fly so he plummets to the ground. While he is lying on the ground an adult owl captures Soren and takes him to a place called St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls. Right after he arrives the general, Skench, gives a speech to the new owls saying: “You are orphans now.” (Page 31) At St. Aegolius Soren meets an...more
I need to confess I decided to read this book because of the movie. I saw the trailer of Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and fell in love with the owls. Well, let’s just say I decided to read Harry Potter just because of the owls on the movie—yes, I also watched the movie and then went to read the book—, and I wrote almost all my Harry Potter fanfictions using one of the story’s owls name as my pen name, so you can imagine how...more
