this book was okay, very long and drawn out. ( )
  sydbearden | Apr 27, 2021 |
I gave this book four out of five stars because it was a little too predictable at times in my opinion. Altogether it was a well-written book and was very thought-provoking at times. The main characters were well-rounded and I love the author's inclusion of the faceless "Nobody" as a kind of benevolent guardian angel. I also like the use of foreshadowing and flash-forward and flashback. This made the story just interesting enough to keep the reader coming back for more. I would recommend this book to anyone ages 12 -15. ( )

This book will keep you on your toes. Each of our main characters in the book starts off wanting something and will do anything to get it. As the book goes on you, see them get into some severe problems and regret their choices. They grow from their mistakes and realize that there are consequences to their actions. Each character learns and grows from this experience. ( )

Owen and Bethany are two separate individuals with two separate issues on planet Earth, but once they meet, they find themselves on a magic planet and science planet embarking on one journey together. Bethany has the problem of finding her dad and Owen has the problem of a boring life. As the story progresses, we see a theme that is common in traditional literature, coming of age. This type of theme unfolds throughout a story and shows the characters maturing and coming to realize that maybe their problem is not that complicated after all. This theme shows characters becoming more aware of themselves. We see Owen embracing this theme when he learns he will have to sacrifice his heart as Kiel. We see Owen accepting the fact that his boring life was just a small problem in comparison to death and we see him express this in a conversation with charm that went like this. “What are you doing here?” Charm asked… “Waiting”, he told her. “For what?” “To go home.” (Story Thieves, pg. 278) He also expressed that he would choose the day to day rather than a life of dangerous adventure when Bethany asked him at the end of the story to go back into another book and help find her father. The book states on page 377 that Owen says, “The idea of adventure just seemed so exciting from this side of the book… but people get hurt. It’s dangerous out there… I think I’m ready for some regular, boring, quite life now. ( )

Story Thieves was written by New York Times bestselling author James Riley, who wants everyone who reads his book to know, “It’s good to be different.” The book begins in the perspective of Owen Connors, just an ordinary boy sitting in math class, which he hates. Owen feels like his life and everything around him is boring, until he sees a classmate, Bethany, literally jump out from inside a book. At first, Owen believes he must be dreaming but soon realizes this is no dream. “No! It had to be real! If it was real, then that meant there was more to life than boring classes and boring chores after school and boring everything else.” (Chapter 3, page 18) As the book continues, the reader goes back and forth from the perspective of Owen to Bethany.
Bethany finds herself telling Owen way more about herself than she had intended and letting him know her biggest secret; her father is actually a fictional character from a book. On Bethany’s fourth birthday she was given a book as a gift and jumped herself, her father, and all of her party guests into it accidentally. She was able to jump herself and her party guests back out but she has not been able to find her father sense.
Owen really wants Bethany to take him into books with her, especially his favorite, Kiel Gnomenfoot and The End of Everything. He tricks Bethany into thinking he only wants to help her get a spell to help find her father, when actually he just wants to meet his hero, Kiel Gnomenfoot, and to save another character, the Magister from an evil scientist, Dr. Verity. “Everyone in this cafeteria, everyone in cafeterias all over the world would read the book, see Owen’s name, and watch him save Kiel’s magic teacher.” (Chapter 5 page 40)
Unknowing of Owen’s plan, Bethany agrees to take him with her but he must not talk to characters or change the story in any way. Bethany couldn’t believe the first thing Owen did was break her rules. By doing so a chain of adventures unfold; fictional characters jumping into the real world causing trouble, Bethany and Kiel trying to save her town, and Owen fighting alongside a half robot to bring peace to fictional worlds.

James Riley was born in 1977in Connecticut. He is a known author and American Novelist who is super famous from this book. This story has three different settings; Owen and Bethany's school, Jonathon Porterhouse's house, and in the seventh Kiel Gnomefoot book. The plot is that Owen and Bethany are in a library. Bethany tells Owen that she is a fictional character who can travel books and he was intrigued; so they made a deal and Owen jumped in the book with her. Owen started talking to other characters like he was told not to so the Magister found out about him and Owen stole some of Bethany's powers. Owen has to pretend to be Kiel because kids are reading Gnomefoot series. They have to defeat Dr. Verity because that is what the series is about. The story goes on with Bethany and Owen going through other adventures. The theme is Good vs. Evil. The author uses protagonists and antagonists in the book. The summary of this book is Owen finds out that his friend Bethany can "book jump" and he wants to enter the Kiel Gnomefoot series. Bethany allows him to come with him on her search for her father who disappeared in a book when she was a young girl. Two quotes that provide evidence for my comments are "I knew that there was something like this out there, because if there wasn't, then life is just dental floss and vegetables and word problems. That can't be everything." - Owen. Another is "It's all just the product of someone's imagination, a writer, an author, his name is Jonathan Porterhouse. He made you all up. You don't really exist." - Owen.
