      This had so much potential but just fell flat The story is just so thin

      Auch dieses Buch wanderte durch eine Schenkung in mein B cherregal und wartete dort darauf endlich gelesen zu werden Im Rahmen einer Lesechallenge wollte ich dem Buch nun eine Chance geben Ich besitze noch ein weiteres Buch vom Autor und werde mir dieses ebenfalls noch vornehmen H ter gibt es ja nun mittlerweile f r alles m gliche Schafe, Licht, Ordnung oder die Moral haben bereits einen und nun reihen sich auch D monen hier mit ein Denn im Buch geht es um Nathan, kurz Nate, welcher die ehrenvol [...]

      Oh, awful Awful Poorly written, and with no real understanding of its audience While the main characters were sixteen years old, and that is the age group to whom this YA book is marketed, it is condescending and shallow It s one of those rare YA books that is written by an adult who forgets entirely what it is like to be that age Young does not mean stupid I m than twice the average age of the intended reading audience, and I was insulted at the books tone in regards to teenagers.Also, it read [...]

      Actual rating 3.5I m really glad I read this book I know, silly thing to say, but the truth is I picked up this book when I was literally hording books in the children s section of the library for the record, I would put this book in the teen section, not the children s section When I brought my stack of books home, I thought I probably will put this one on my to read list and never get around to it when it came to this book But for some reason, I decided to read it first I was not disappointed.

      I hope this one gets made into a decent movie it has such potential Nat lives in a Seattle house that is chock full of demons most of whom are pretty harmless or just annoying , and his mentor Dahliwahl has left him in charge Nat knows the basics, but he is still inexperienced, and the funnier demons take advantage of that at every turn The evil Thin Man appears, and he is after The Beast that escaped from the basement when Nat went on his first date with nerdy library assistant Sandy Nat must f [...]

      This was a quick read If you liked the Percy Jackson series, then I would say you might like this Though it lacks acient gods, it does deal with teens with special abilities Honestly I had an issue with the demons To me they were nothing of the sort They resembled monsters created out of chaotic energy To me demon s posses and influence things In this book they caused mischief much like a poltergeist would Where only those gifted with the sight could see what was really causing the chaos Plus t [...]

      German edition German review Wirklich berzeugt hat mich Royce Buckingham mit diesem Buch nicht Es ist kurzweilig, die Handlung ist rasant, aber es fehlt an Tiefe Man kann, darf und sollte auch von einem Jugendbuch erwarten, dass die Figuren halbwegs glaubw rdig agieren und der unerwartete und grausame Tod eines Jugendlichen an seinem Kameraden nicht v llig ohne Spuren zu hinterlassen vor bergeht, zumal wenn dieser die halbverdauten berreste seines Kumpels auch noch vor die F e geklatscht bekommt [...]

    8. Miss Bookiverse on said:

      The ideas for all the demons, their outward appearances and skills very pretty cool and creative The storyline and human characters seemed only half hearted compared to them though The story is very simple and predictable, sometimes the jokes are too and there are too many clich s used I liked the shortness of the chapters The way the story is told feels very movie like which is a cool thing but doesn t always work out.Boris Aljinovic did a great job reading the book, especially with imitating a [...]

      6,5 10Le tre stelle sono un po regalate, ma due mi sembravano poche se pure lo svolgimento prevedibile nei suoi snodi principali, la scrittura spesso scarna, ci sono svariati infodump e il tutto avrebbe potuto essere trattato in modo pi profondo, pure non mancano momenti brillanti e sinceramente spassosi, dettagli originali, ironia e verosimiglianza nei personaggi Scorre bene, pur lasciando la sensazione che avrebbe potuto essere migliore.

      Uhm Ho letto questo libro per spegnere il cervello e devo dire che servito allo scopo, per sono rimasta un po con l amaro in bocca.La storia in s carina, ma troppo veloce e scarna per quanto riguarda lo stile e le descrizioni Fortunatamente i demoni non mancavano e ho adorato la casa di Nat un peccato, perch la trama aveva molti spunti interessanti, ma non sono stati sfruttati al massimo.Tre stelle regalate, dai Due e mezzo mi sembrano poche.

    11. Julia on said:

      Well, to quote the rating It was ok.I may have enjoyed it if I were about a decade younger and if there weren t so many logical errors For example is Sandy in 7th grade I was 13 then and in the next moment she just got her license and is driving a car What the hell Or the evil dude is holding a book but can also grab Nate shoulders with both hands What s that about

      L ho trovato troppo veloce,i personaggi sono appena abbozzati,lo svolgimento molto prevedibile.La storia,per , carina e i demoni del caos sono simpatici.Sicuramente un libretto per ragazzini,ma non troppo piccoli,perch comunque ci sono scene un po horror che potrebbero spaventarli.

    14. Usagi on said:

      This was a fun read A couple of the scenes of horror seemed disparate with the tone of the majority of the novel, but the characters were engaging, with a satisfying finish.

      Plot 3 Stars This novel was my second middle grade novel the first being The Lightning Thief I wanted to love it, but it was a bit lacking in details We know that Nat s mentor has passed away, but we do not really know what happened He is now in charge of this house full of demons, but we don t really learn much about the demons, except for Nat s three minions and the Beast Nat s minions are interesting, but even their powers are barely mentioned At one point, a comment is made that having three [...]

      Genre Middle Grade Urban FantasyPublisher Type TraditionalMy Rating My Review So I had a huge dilemma in rating DemonKeeper As I read it, I read it as a Middle Grade story and LOVED it It s such a fun and enchanting read But the main character is 16, putting DemonKeeper in the YA range As a YA novel, it falls short of the depth of character and story I expect out of YA literature But as a Middle Grade novel, it s perfect So I decided to categorize DemonKeeper as Middle Grade and rate it as such [...]

      Manchmal verstehe ich nicht, warum man bei deutschen bersetzungen nicht einfach auch die deutsche Entsprechung des englischen Titels verwenden kann, sondern sich unbedingt etwas Neues und Unpassendes ausdenken muss auch hier geschehen Demonkeeper ist gut gew hlt, denn genau darum geht es um einen Jugendlichen Nathan , der ein Haus voller mal mehr mal weniger witziger D monen h ten muss Und die sind zwar manchmal knuddelig, manchmal niedlich, meistens frech und witzig, aber definitiv nicht d mlic [...]

      Ich muss gestehen, dass ich das Buch eigentlich recht lustig und spannend fand, aber irgendwie hat es der Geschichte ein wenig an Hintergrundinformationen gemangelt Royce Buckingham hat mich quasi, wie Nate durch Seattle, durch das Buch gejagt Jeder Moment, jedes Detail klang zeitweise wie eine Auflistung von Dingen, die der Autor unbedingt noch der Geschichte beif gen m chte, weil sie seinem Empfinden nach noch unbedingt dazugeh ren Dennoch hat Royce Buckingham es geschafft die Handlung im Buch [...]

      Let me preface my review of this book by saying that I do not enjoy reading anything gory I m a very visual person and I cannot get the images out of my mind I was concerned when I saw the author mention Stephen King in his dedications That being said, this book probably wasn t gory enough for some young readers, it just isn t my cup of tea.In the first chapter Nat, the keeper of demons, is doing his daily chores which involve feeding the demons bloody fish heads and entrails This of course made [...]
