Just as enjoyable as the last two volumes. The mysteries deepen here, progressing the story forward steadily. No idea where this is headed, but I’m enthralled enough to find out.

Picking up where Book #2 ended, Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone are working off their debt to Lucius, while Fone Bone and Thorn are having really strange dreams. Grandma Ben reacts awfully strangely when she hears them talking about it. After avoiding them and dealing with the rat creatures again, she eventually reveals a secret to them that is a game changer. I like Ted because "bugs know a lotta stuff folks wouldn't s'pose they'd know."

Prica pocinje da se zahuktava i postaje malo mracnija. Mada Thornina prolost je malo kliseizirana al dobro. U svakom slucaju zabava se nastavlja :)

This is the third book of the bones series. The series is a graphic novel Fantasy series. In this book Fone Bone and Thorn are having really strange dreams and Grandma Ben is reacting oddly when she hears them talking about it. She then reveals a secret to them that changes things. They may have to leave the farm for ever.

Mean while Smiley and Phoney are with Lucius at his bar working of a debt they owe. Then Phoney makes a bet with Lucius. The steakes are high. Who could be the better bartender

Bone: into the storm is part of a book series about these creatures called bones. In this volume, they find themselves in a war between the rat creatures and themselves. This could mean they have to leave for good!

Characters- Fone Bone- One of the three bone cousins who got chased out of Boneville and eventually found themselves in the valley. He is short, smart, has big feet, a big nose and he is very bright white colored. He also has a secret affection for Thorn.

Now it's getting good! This began as a simple cartoon with tiny glimmers of a darker understory and now, almost 600 pages in, we are finally getting to the meat. I can see why so many people love this. It's a very, very slow boil, but if I were reading this as it was written, I don't know that I would have been patient enough to get this far.

I am really looking forward to book four.

I find this volume difficult from a ratings perspective. If you are reading all of the volumes back to back, as you should be, there is nothing wrong with this volume. We get a huge reveal, rat creatures being rat creatures, and Phoney's bar bet with Lucious kicks off. It's a fast and entertaining volume that propels you into the next volume.

But by itself... if you were reading these as they were released and had to wait what would seem like forever between volumes... I can see this o

I didn't get into this installment as much, although I enjoyed the Moby Dick spoof. This volume ends with a possibly interesting setup for the next book's storyline, but I find I am not interested enough to continue. The information comes too slowly for me and without another cow race (see Volume 2), there is nothing to keep me in it for the long haul.

I was slightly disturbed that Thorn, the main female character, seems to be wearing less and less clothing as the series goes on. Does the writer

This one wasn't as funny as the first two volumes, but it did have its moments, particularly with Smiley Bone. He is the comic relief throughout the novel and even though he is the village idiot character, the author writes him in such a way that you aren't left face palming after he says or does something, but rather laughing or grinning like an idiot. At least that's how I was.

This one's content was definitely a lot more serious, and started to answer a lot of the questions that plagued me thr

SPOILER!!!! It was a great book there is some action when there is rat creatures. Also there is some conflict between rose and her grandma throughout the story it turns out she is a princess and her parents were killed saving her. Another thing is her grandfather owns a bar and challenges fone bones cousins to see who will make the most money by selling beer.

I was unable to get the chance to read the first Bone book, so I skipped straight to the third book. It was a little hard to follow some of the topics they talked about but I slowly started to understand what was happening. I enjoyed reading this book a lot, it had some funny moments and also some very serious moments. I like the illustrations a lot, they were ver clear and made the book so much better. While I was reading this book I found it a bit weird how some random characters came in and o ...more

This is the third book in the Bone series by Jeff Smith. We all read it independently and I'm so glad that our girls like the story. The story is fun, exciting, and full of drama and intrigue. We are all hooked!

My husband enjoyed collecting comic books when we were a lot younger and when I would accompany him on his trips to the comic book store, I would often pick up an issue of Bone. I thought the story was very engaging and dramatic and I loved the little guy.

Hasta ahora, el mejor tomo en lo que va de la serie, sin duda alguna. Si no llega a las cuatro estrellas es por algún bajón narrativo y algún que otro caprichito mío. Sigue manteniendo el espíritu inocentón y cándido de las primeras aventuras, pero la sombra del pasado ya va cubriendo a los personajes, varias verdades salen a la luz y la cosa se está poniendo jodida de verdad. Lástima que un par de las "revelaciones" me parecieron predecibles en el mal sentido de la palabra: si Smith tenía ganas ...more

Thorn learns her grandmother's a lying two-face with a hidden past. Gasp! :O Well, it's true, but it's not that bad. Grandma Ben's been protecting Thorn and keeping Thorn's past hidden as well- even from Thorn herself. Only now, Thorn knows and she doesn't know how she feels about what she's learned. She's despondent and honestly, that bores me. As they walk off into the sunset- or flee that impending army of rat creatures, however you want to look at it- I can only hope she sucks

This volume kicks up the dream factor a notch. I find the dream sequences to be more traditional fantasy then the rest of the story, except for the Moby Dick inspired dream chapter.

Phone Bone is moving alone with the main story. Phoney Bone is still trying to be as shifty as possible. Smily Bone is still dim. The rat creatures are still causing trouble for everyone. I feel this will be a common yet effective pattern throughout the whole story arc.

Much more interesting than I was prepared for. The throw-back youthfulness and simplicity of the artwork, and the fantasy genre of the material, had set me up for the kind of story that isn't usually up my alley, but the character work and the subtext of both the dialogue and the artwork made for a fun and eventually fascinating read. By the time I finished this, I wished I'd started at the beginning and was itching to read the rest.

Phew! I read this third volume so quickly that I'm not sure what to write. I know this installment was good: it is a tense, fast-paced read. Secrets are revealed and the reader is left wondering about many other things. I'm glad I'm not reading the series when it was first published. It's nice to be able to pick up the next volume when volume 3 leaves you dying to know what will happen next.

I read all 9 plus the prequel to my son when he was younger. The added color, the amazing artwork, and engrossing story sucked us both into Bone's world. A great set of books with many fond memories for me and from the story itself. Years later, when my son learned to read, he was picking the books up again and again to re-experience this awesome story. READ IT! :)

This is the first volume where I feel like I actually care about the outcome of this adventure. So far it was just humor, but this added stakes to it without compromising the laughs much. I do hope certain elements that seem to be heading towards fantasy cliches end up not doing that.
