(Realm of the Reaper) [PDF DOWNLOAD] ê Katherine Applegate


All of his previous actions mentality in a new light his relentless drive to find an objective reality something that makes sense order driven to a too far extreme all the while he s ruled by something so irrational and uncontrollable His attempts to parse the world into something he can understand and control comes from a deep sense of helplessness This book was probably my first exposure to real OCD in a fictional character too so I appreciate Applegate dealing with itI think there are some especially nice parallels to David here too David #is heroic and brave because he s over compensating for his own internal cowardice and weakness and Jalil is doing the #heroic and brave because he s over compensating for his own internal cowardice and weakness and Jalil is doing the same thing leaning too far into the realm of "THE LOGICAL RATIONAL IN ORDER TO "logical rational in order to with his internal demonsAs the final POV book of the core uartet it s interesting seeing his relationships to the others too Despite him and Christopher clashing all the time their moods see saw operating in direct opposition to one another Christopher s racist okes and insults even then there s a strange accord between them At times Christopher was like my best friend A second later he was this racist Pendragon (Ciclo Pendragon , jerkwad Brave cowardly stand up self centered One minute he d take your hand the next slap it away Like I said I didn t get himThey re close they often agree with one another Despite those disagreements with Christopher which I d say are actually pretty surface levelust them snapping at one another when they re grumpy I think he actually experiences the most genuine animosity towards David because of how bewitched David is about Senna And April again we see them coming from a place of mutual respect and trust I love the couple moments we get when she casts Jalil a For Petes Sake (Piper Cove Chronicles joke meant specifically for him or they share a little Can you believe this moment about the other twoThe group is all starting to understand how the rest of them tick and there soking group chemistry They still argue but I feel like this time they collectively acknowledge their stress and back down rather than having April yell them into submission Even Christopher usually the most needlessly provocative of the lot starts playing his role in keeping the peace in the groupThere s also some time spent with Senna revealing of her calculating manipulative always trying to work an angle to her own benefitHel is deeply frightening and repulsive I made the mistake of reading her introduction scene while eating lunch Don t do that and the ending of this book is like something out of The HobbitThe plot structure is still lacking though casting them on from adventure to adventure it s definitely far like A Series of Unfortunate Events say with The Wrangler just a nonstop seuence of events and the characters not having much agency So this was probably back to being of a 3 star book except that the last page made me BURST OUT LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY IN PUBLIC and I could not stop laughing for like a whole minute and that alone bumped it up another star for me 35 stars ishI keep trying to think of how KAA might have fixed the episodic issues but I must not sure how it could have been done better in this premise honestly they re The Celebrity Doctors Proposal just teenagers plunged into a truly powerless situation They re not movers and shakers in Everworld and I can t come up with an easy solution for the way they re stuck drifting from problem to problem The arc of this series at least for the first third seems to be to show off the worldbuilding and mythology examining how so many different pantheons look when they re mashed together and how much do I love all the different underworlds allutting up against each other and Hel being like a fierce lady generalCEO barking out orders for maintaining her borders against these other chthonic deities so much You ust have to buckle up and be down for the ride Favourite uotesview spoilerI turned off the faucet I put away the soap I tried to walk away I had washed my hands five times Five Five was four too many I knew that I wasn t insane I knew I had washed my hands five times knew it was unnecessary knew it was absurd ridiculous worst of all irrationalBut seven was the number Seven Not five Seven was safe Had to be seven No reason Why even ask There could not possibly be a reason People washed their hands once In an entire day maybe twice three times They had lives normal lives they didn t die they weren t eaten alive by bacteriaBut there was no point resisting I d already gone to five Two and I would be free for a while Seven That was the numberI lived here I lived there But only here did the dark ritual impulses rule me Only here Why This was the world of reason This was the world where cause and effect were always cause and effect they did not reverse orderThis was the world that could be added and subtracted divided and multiplied where circles were functions of pi where all objects fell at the same constant race of acceleration where laws of physics were laws not suggestionsThis. L David and Christopher end up in Everworld Since then they’ve been hunted by trolls entertained Vikings fought in a war against Aztecs and their heart eating god encountered Merlin met some strange alien metalsmiths and got a chance to see their very first real. ,

Realm of the ReaperWas my world The world of two
plus two 
two euals every time "No Wizards No Witches no witches dragons no trolls no gods and goddesses My world understandable decipherable logicalBut it was here here in this world that I stood helpless at my sink and washed my hands again because the number you see is sevenThe tusks the carved nasty teeth that snout inches from my face The pig was going to rip my face open The pig was going to kill me Christopher stabbed at the pig NothingBut then uite calmly the pig climbed down off me It trotted about six steps then paused turned and looked at us with amused contemptThen the pig said Give me your apples Give me your apples or I ll gut you one by oneWe gave him our applesJust another day in EverworldAnd finally there s me Gangly wiry skinny pick your adjective I prefer lean myself A black poindexter most people think Jalil that s my name People assume it s an African name It s not It s Hindi and it means godlikeSometimes irony takes a while to developSo let s keep going forward April said She winked at David I feel great forces guiding my steps to find another crossing I sense the cosmic rightness of this decision I believe it may involve the attraction of a crystal or possibly ust fluctuations in my own magnetic fieldsI laughed She was trying to provoke me of courseIf you re in touch with the Great Cosmic Fluctuating Crystal see if you can get directions to a nice Hyatt Regency I d kill for a shower and fresh sheetsKill who Christopher askedDon t worry Christopher I wouldn t kill you for a shower I d kill you for a breath mintCanoes hell they could come after us with killer mermaids or singing freaking sea serpents or windsurfing leprechauns WTE Christopher saidWTE Welcome To Everworld It had become our all purpose phraseHe was in a good mood now because I wasn t Somehow Christopher and I had become polarized Like opposite ends of a magnet If I was positive he was neg It s the first Jalil book my favorite character and I still really liked this one This is one of the books I remembered most clearly both because Hel is so horrifying and also because Jalil is uniue Senna tries to control him by demonstrating that she can banish his OCD and it s rare to find a character with mental illness in fiction especially given that it s not the focus of the storyBut seriously Applegate makes a pretty convincing demonstration of why Vikings were so eager to die in battle rather than end up with Hel Welcome back to the style of the first two books one event runs into another with the loose plot form back but with the advantage that the essential world building has already been done Now we can run around Everworld in search of Senna again meeting new and strange groups of people in scary places without being over encumbered by stray details to remind us where we are Basically we are back to the less coherent and cohesive plot that reigned in the first two books but at the same time we are not having this that and the other thing thrown at us to tell us where we are At this ratepattern I would advocate that this series be bundled in groups of three to actually get a beginning middle and importantly end for the different installments That being said I do really appreciate all the very vivid details that are present in these books Everworld comes alive in a way that Animorphs didn t uite manage in the very visuals of the landscapes the small details about the different people the Everworld kids encounter and the absolute horrors which most of those visuals are Seriously if I were a kid imagining these images some of the things Jalil and Co see would be terrifying Okay actually they re still pretty terrifying to my adult imagination So vivid For the record I checked a copy of this out from the library and the iron on inset of Hel which comes with the book Still in the book No surprise that no one took it out to wear her lovely mug on their chest Finally last but not least we have Jalil narrating unless Senna is going to surprise us and narrate one Which I highly doubt maybe the last one but only if that one doesn t rotate between the four main characters Our final Everworld kid the one who is oh so fixated on facts and logic I thought that alone was almost enough to put him on the autism spectrum still kind of do but the truth is it s related to the fact that he has OCD For example he intellectually knows that he does not have to wash his hands seven times but he can t control the need to do it anyways and he hates not having that control over his own mind So he makes up for it by fitting everything else in his world into logic boxes and by trying to put the roundness of Everworld into the boxes of the real world I find it curious and convenient that he does not have to deal with his OCD while in Everworld only in the real world It is surely the doing of view spoilerSenna since we see his first encounter with her where she momentarily takes away his compulsion hide spoile. Live dragon It’s been a strange few days to say the leastTheir “journey” started out as a search for a friend but things have turned dangerous Because now April and the others are about to discover the true opposite of heaven and it isn’t a very nice plac. ,
