I’ve read his Door Within Trilogy and I really enjoyed it. I’m planning to re-read it soon. (In fact, I got the the second book from the library and it’s on my shelf, waiting for me to read the first one.)
Has anyone else read and enjoyed his books?
I haven’t, but I’ve heard so much about them, I think I’ll check them out when I have a chance…which might be a while, with my current school, writing, and sewing projects. Someday!
They’re relatively easy reads, but beware! Once you pick them up they’re hard to put down.
One of my Favourites. Read the Entire Trilogy and rereading the Isle of Swords
I remember starting The Door Within late one night, and crying, laughing and gasping through half of it. I would have read the whole thing, but my eyes were tired. I Of course, I devoured the rest of it the second day! It’s on my favorites bookshelf now. That’s the best one, then The Final Storm, and then the cheesy middle one.
Ordered Isle of Swords from the library…”4-6 weeks for the books to get here”??!!!!
I’m waiting for Isle of Swords to come out in paperback. I read the Door Within trilogy, and what I love most about it is that Mr. Batson is such a good writer. I didn’t get into the story as much, but I actually study his books to see how he writes so well. He seems to be able to develop a character and make you like them with only a sentence or two.
Are Batson’s books available in paperback? I didn’t think any of them were that way.
My Door Within copy’s in paperback.
I love how Batson didn’t continue making his modern kids talk and act entirely modern; they slipped into their surroundings much better than some books I could mention…
The Door Within books are available in paperback, plus they have the “lost chapters”. Chapters that got cut for the intial print run.
Yeah, that’s my version. Are the paperbacks printed in colored ink? Cause I think the hardback editions are. That’s a neat-o feature!
Erm. . . I’m pretty sure the first one is. I can’t remember about the other two. *goes to look*
EDIT: Maybe not. The second on is right beside me, and it’s printed in black. My eyes must have been playing tricks on me.
The first and third are. I wonder why the second wasn’t?
I may just be looking at it under the wrong light.
No, I remember when I read it it was black.
Maybe they thought the second one was too boring to print in rockin’ colors!
