    I LOVE the movies!! I still like the books better because the movies leave out some stuff and the books are just SO GREAT!! - but I think Peter Jackson does a GREAT job and The Hobbit movies are still some of my favorite of all time. Besides, they don't leave out as much as the Lord of the Rings does, so that's great!

    I like the movies almost as much as the book, but maybe not ask much because even though they're 3 hours long each (yes, lol) they still leave out so much that the book doesn't! In some ways I appreciate this because the books can get so much in detail that I get bored sometimes, but that was probably because I first read them as a 7-year-old. The Lord of the Rings movies still hold the record as my favorite movies of ALL TIME! (and the books hold the record as my second favorite book series, although they're still better than the movies!!)

    Two tribes. Two chiefs. No hope. Will they get out alive before their corpses are all lying on the island floor? *********************************************************************************************************************************** At the dawn of the next World War, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate. This far from civilization they can do anything they want. Anything. But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed from reality as the hope of being rescued. *********************************************************************************************************************************** I haven't yet finished this book; however, it's interesting so far and I'm excited for the action!

    BEST BOOK EVER!! This has become my favorite series of ALL time! Summary: At the age of 15, you are chosen for your craft; it's time for Will and the other wards to be chosen for their training. Whatever they are chosen for, they are taught to master that skill which will become their future job. Each of the mentors of each craft from Redmont Fief stand before the 15-year-old wards, including Will. Each of these wards know what they want to be chosen for, and everyone but Will has skill in that area. Will, like most other boys, including Horace, wants to be chosen for Battleschool. However, he isn't necessarily strong or heavily built like Horace. In fact, he's much more skinny and weak than he would like to be and had been teased by Horace himself for this same reason. Beading with sweat, Will watches as each of the wards is gradually chosen. So far, everyone is accepted into the craft that they had dreamed of. When it's Will's turn, he is broken when he isn't accepted into Battleschool. After all, he is an orphan but had heard that his father was a hero and he wanted to be just like him. Of course he had wanted to be in Battleschool! The mysterious Ranger Halt took interest the boy - the Rangers slipped around unseen and mysterious. Some of the villagers believed that they practiced dark magic. Halt accepted him as an apprentice, taking him to his cabin in the woods. Will was nervous, and still slightly disappointed that he wasn't accepted into Battleschool. But as he begins to be trained in the ways of a Ranger, he realizes that Rangers are not what they seem. Yes - they are trained in camouflage and unseen movement. Yes - they are trained to move as silently as possible. Yes - they are trained in archery so well that they can't miss the bullseye. Yes - they were camouflage cloaks that help them to blend into the environment. Yes - they even learn tracking skills in the wild. And yes... they also help protect the kingdom. As Will is going through his first year of training, a war is beginning to form between a former Baron, Morgarath. He was exiled into the mountains years ago and now has risen an army to retake Araluen for himself. One type of creatures in his army, the Kalkara, has made their way into the valley. Now, it is Will and Halt's mission to eliminate them... By the end of his first year in Apprentice training, Will, the Ranger's Apprentice, turns down the offer from the King himself after seeing such skill in battle to join Battleschool. He realizes that being a Ranger has meant more to him than even being just like his father, was. He could be hero without being a Knight.
