review ☆ The Eyes of the Killer Robot á PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook

John Bellairs Ô 4 Read

At first of the eBook #180 Johnny Dixon doesn't believe Professor Childermass's story about Evaristus Sloane the insane inventor of a fiendish baseball pit. Gothic horror for children Bellairs was one of my favorite authors when I was a kid but this is my first time reading this particular book The problem with reading Bellairs as an adult is that it seems unbelievable when the characters don t seem to learn anything from book to book Johnny gets a bad feeling about something and they all brush it off every time and yet every time this happens something terrible follows No lessons are learned But this was one of the things that was great about reading these books as a kid It didn t matter that the characters followed the same pattern every time because that s why you were reading the books Something bad would happen involving wizards or witches or magicians or ghosts or curses or some other vague occult something it would be scary but you knew it would be okay in the end One thing I appreciate about Bellairs is that none of his characters are conventionally attractive in the slightest Most of them are described in pretty unattractive terms including the heroes of the story Professor Childermass is short and elderly and crabby looking with wildly sprouting muttonchop whiskers gold rimmed glasses and a nose that looked like an overripe strawberry Whereas Johnny is shy nerdy and nearly friendless and Fergie is a gangly droopy faced kid with big ears and a blunt ended nose No handsome heroes here I think it made the characters relate able for me when I was a kid
