"Flight Of The Eagles (Seven Sleepers, #1)" Reviews
I was anticipating something with the subtle spiritual nuances of The Chronicles of Narnia, but the story seemed inordinately thin and the plot was a series of happenings, rather than a tapestry of conflict and resolution. Perhaps my expectations were simply too high.
I did not care for this book at all. The plot was really far out there. The characters were poorly developed. There were gaping holes in the storyline that are never answered. I cannot tell you how many times the words, "I don't know why it is that way, it just is" are used in this book. To me that is copping out. The characters run into trouble a lot and are always saved by a voice in their heads or a person only one person can see at a time.
Not the best Christian fantasy I've ever read, but I probably would have loved it when I was younger. It's kinda weird and takes a lot of suspension of belief, not many of the characters are very memorable, and there's lots of awkward or stiff wording, but the idea behind it is pretty unique (even if it's not very realistic, even for fantasy). The Christian message comes across strongly, but it doesn't feel like I'm being hit across the head with it. I'll continue the series, since my church library owns all of it, and the sequel series.
I loved the Gemini twins though, that was a really cool idea.
This is by far the best book in the series. Lots of interesting characters are developed here, but sadly, most are dropped off in the next book, only occasionally re-appearing in the next ones. This is definitely a teen book, but well done for that age group.
It was interesting... okay... a light read. Heavy on "being led by higher being", I won't buy the rest of the series but might check it out at the library.
SHUT UP! Does anyone else remember the Seven Sleeper series??? I want to read them all again!! This calls for a trip to the library.. very soon.
