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
1. The world building is inconsistent and poorly thought out. If, in this post-human world, stone castles are little more than tumbled ruins, how would any barn have survived well enough for barn owls to associate themselves with them? And why would they anyway? The inexplicable knowledge of the owls regarding human buildings is strange...more

This book is not fantastic.
Don't get me wrong. This is a good book. It tells the story of Soren, a young barn owl that is taken to a school for orphaned owls and his escape from the school.
The thing that made this book somewhat annoying to read is that Lasky made up a bunch of words. It wasn't hard to figure out what they meant, but it got ol...more

Then we saw the preview for the new movie coming out and I found the first book (of fifteen) at the thrift store. I decided to take a chance and read it out loud to my seven and a half year old son. I was astonished, first of all, by how into it HE was, but near the middle, by how much I was into it myself! Our main...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
