Christopher and the gang are sent off on their second ever quest: to deliver Dionysus, god of a good time, and his companion Ganymede, a man so beautiful he makes straight guys question himself, to Zeus on Olympus. Only problem is to get to Olympus they have to pass through Ka Anor, the go eater’s territory.

It took me several weeks to read this book. I fell terribly sick and all I wanted to do was sleep, so if I wanted to get to sleep I’d read a fee pages of this and soon I’d be snoring. It was

So far for me, this has been the weakest book in the series. I still read it very quickly, but it wasn't as exciting. Yes, there was immense danger at every corner, but the majority of the book involved running from the Hetwan. Run run run, almost die, run run run, meet a Greek god, run run run.

This story is told from Christopher's point of view. Christopher is one of my favorite characters; he's witty, extremely cynical and very jaded. So hearing his thoughts is always entertaining.

I won't giv

Fear the Fantastic follows Discover the Destroyer, and more than any other installment I've read, it reminded me that this series is best read as one long book. While Dionysus appears for the first time and the four travelers get to have a bit of a fight from time to time, this book is primarily a transition book. We are simply moving from one place to the next. At the end of DtD, they have just entered the lands of Ka Anor, and FtF merely gets them to the center of the city. Now I have to wait ...more

I have feelings. I hate books.

   The Everworld kids find themselves in Hetwan country, where trees sing and giant ants will plow right over you as they harvest huge swaths of trees. Oh, then there’s running into Dionysus’ party on the way through Hetwan country to reach Mount Olympus on the far side. Welcome to Everworld, indeed!

   What the last book did for revealing more about David, this book does the same for revealing more about Christopher. Except with Christopher, we are getting all current-day issues that he is going
3.5 stars again! 3 stars for the pacing/plot (once again, it's quite a bit of moving from A to B and trying to stay alive along the way, across various fun and fantastical settings); 4 stars for characterisation.

Sometimes I wonder just how unlikeable KAA set out to make Christopher, considering him using the slur f*g was a new low -- but I think that was the point, and worth it considering the character development he undergoes later, specifically (view spoiler)

Aria di party (SPOILER)
Di Senna questa volta neanche l'ombra,ma incontriamo Dioniso,sempre ubriaco come vuole la tradizione greca,e un angelo bellissimo,Ganimede,catturati da un gruppo di Hetwan,pronti a portarli da Ka Anor (colui che divora gli dei).Con l'aiuto dei nostri ragazzi,tutti arrivano sul monte Olimpo,non prima di aver assistito ad un banchetto del grande divoratore degli dei (dove purtroppo qualcuno appena conosciuto muore).
Anche questo libro mi è piaciuto: forse un po' troppo sopra

I love this series. The constant pop culture references are dated, since it was published in 2000, but I can forgive that.

This book took us away from familiar myths and into one Applegate created. Very interesting descriptions and plot points! Christopher stays pretty much the same throughout, but gets some drastic development at the end that is actually rather emotional, but good to see in him. Otherwise this book just serves to move us from one area to the next. It's good, but doesn't have as many big moments as the others.

I picked up this one from the used bookshelf because I hadn't read any in the series and I'm trying to take a look at as much teen/ya fic as possible right now. I flipped through it and thought the sarcastic, quick witted writing style was fabulous and brought it home.

Granted, there are 5 books in the series before this one and I'm literally jumping in the middle but this was a hard one for me to finish.

The whole experience felt like this: Make some snarky, wise-assed comments, run from the al
