As advise from my own mistake, do not read cats of the clans until you've finished pretty much all of them. I got so many spoilers. See all 94 questions about Into the Wild…. Lists with This Book.

The level of trolls it has gotten has reached levels I cannot stand anymore. Of course, there are reviews with more trolls, but this is as much as I can endure.
And for you, ignorants who can't accept other people's opinions better known as "trolls" , why don't you go read one of the many thousands of 5 star reviews instead of coming to criticize an opinion Edit February 23, And for you, ignorants who can't accept other people's opinions better known as "trolls" , why don't you go read one of the many thousands of 5 star reviews instead of coming to criticize an opinion that's obviously different to yours?
Don't you understand it's pointless? I'm not going to stop hating this book if you tell me "I'm wrong. And that's my final word. I won't be replying to any comment in here, I don't care why you love this write your own review for that and I won't read the rest of this series.
The first thing you need to know about me is that I hate cats.
They're are the living creatures I dread the most after roaches. I'm serious. I can't think about cats without flinching. I hear one, and I shudder. I see one, and I want to vomit. One gets near me and the good girl inside me is in risk of going far far away. I just can't stand them. The second thing you need to know is that I hate stories about talking animals. I literally cannot watch a TV show or a movie where there are talking animals without going insane.
Really, I get so exasperated and furious I fear my heart will stop working. Those previous points led me to think I was not going to like this book, but I decided to try anyway because I've had pleasant surprises, for example, The Monstrumologist. I regret my decision. Perhaps this is the most ridiculous book I've read after Twilight and we're talking about one year.
I just couldn't download the concept. Clans of cats fighting? The hell?
That's all this book is about. Some might say it's an original concept, but for me? It's just laughable. Also, the amount of absurd names was overwhelming to the point where I wanted to kill myself. Look at some examples: You may have noticed that I highlighted some of the names Some awkward sentences contributed to my almost madness too.
Like this: That's like trying to talk while swallowing I tried doing it and I failed. My brother tried and he failed too. My mother is part of this group too and my sister as well. This felt just as wtf as the previous one: Yellowfang looked up at Bluestar and narrowed her eyes respectfully.
Narrow eyes respectfully? How do you do that? Like this?
Or maybe like this? Aren't you a creepy one, Cinderella's stepmother? For me, they all look the same except some are more hate-filled , don't ya think? The unnecessary deaths were also another bug for me. Like, I didn't even get to know the character yet he died and I'm supposed to feel bad?
For example, there was a Redtail yeah, ludicrous name - don't even mention it at the beginning. I didn't know who that was, and there comes some cat telling everyone Redtail's dead.
I mean, wtf, who the hell is Redtail? And I'm not only talking about his death. There were many pointless ones. Why did they die? Just to Anyway, I'm sure I bashing a book most people love, but maybe this didn't work for me because it simply was ridiculous not a book targetted to my age.
If you're a fan of talking animals and you love stupid stories about pointless "warriors" cats, then this might be just for you. Oct 19, Audrey Ravenstar rated it it was amazing. Comment below if you would like to join ThunderClan You silently walk through the forest, alone and scared. You are hungry and tired, and are in need of shelter.
Suddenly, you come across a young, tortoise shell cat.

My 10 yr old daughter is in love with these booksshe can devour one a day and the way that they are churned out She is so into these that she asked my husband and I to give them a shot. Fine, I can take one for the team, I mean, heck, she's reading , right?
Thing is, it's not so bad.
You've got a li'l bit o So You've got a li'l bit of Tolkien and a splash of Shakespearean tragedy in a Jets vs. Sharks sorta way It makes for a lively story. Here's my issue So, you have the kittpet, Rusty , longing to pounce on mice and rabbits, tearing into their cold, fuzzy, flesh--he meets Graypaw and is introduced to Thunderclan and meets Lionheart and Tigerclaw and Dustpaw and Sandpaw and they take him in and he becomes Firepaw and apprentices with Bluestar but Tigerclaw has this chip on his shoulder and doesn't like him and he runs into Yellowfang and falls for Spottedleaf , then has to save the honor or Ravenpaw who watched Redtail be killed by Oakheart , but it wasn't Oakheart it was Tigerclaw and meanwhile you have Shadowclan , which is Yellowfang's old gang and they're led by Brokenspear who has daddy issues and offs Raggedstar and sends Clawface to capture Frostfur's kits so there's this A-Team like maneuver to invade Shadowclan that Whitestorm leads and then Graypaw becomes Graystripe and Firepaw who was Rusty now becomes Fireheart View all 45 comments.

Nov 19, Anna-Marie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This book is about a house cat who is tired of being a house cat and wants to go into the wild. Then he mets a kitten from a 'clan' and goes with him into the forest and mets the rest of the Thunderclan. This book sounds boring, but really, it is a great book. The author is very descriptive and makes it all very interesting. There a four clans, Thunderclan, Windclan, Riverclan and Shadowclan.
The whole series, and there are a lot of them, is about the four clans fighting to stay alive and also t This book is about a house cat who is tired of being a house cat and wants to go into the wild. The whole series, and there are a lot of them, is about the four clans fighting to stay alive and also trying to be friends with the other clans.
There are also new series, calld the New Prophecy, they are about different cats and different problems, but all the series join together. It really doesn't sound that great, but you should just try, you will be suprised. This is the first book out of all of them, after you have read it though, you need to read the rest.

I actually want to talk about why these stupid books made me fall in love with reading, because they truly influenced me so much. I think the best thing about this series is the developed character work.
This is a series that has defined characters who you can root for or dislike, which is awesome. I actually think t These books are written terribly but they've actually got pretty developed characters and they basically made me fall in love with reading in third grade or whatever? I actually think the characters improve throughout the series.
In series one, Fireclaw is kind of a typical boring do-gooder. Brambleclaw, Leafpool, and Squirrelflight, the main characters in series two, are far more interesting and defined, with clear motivations beyond "do the right thing.
I also really appreciate the occasional morally grey or morally black characters. Yes, many characters are a bit "I do good things and I'm amazing!! Yeah, the plot is a little weird and far-fetched, and the writing is pretty terrible now that I've grown up enough to see it, but this series is definitely good for anyone who likes middle grade fiction. Especially kids. This is definitely a series I'd give to all elementary schoolers.
View all 26 comments. May 16, Kater Cheek rated it did not like it. My kids adore these novels, so I knew it was only a matter of time before I had to read them too. I figured I'd like them.
After all, I like middle grade and YA fiction, and cats are cool, and Watership Down was one of my favorite novels of all time. So how could a book about warrior housecats go wrong? If you're one of those people that hate cilantro, than any salsa with cilantro in it is going to hit your "ick, soapy" button and displease you. This novel hit a lot of my ick buttons. For one, it My kids adore these novels, so I knew it was only a matter of time before I had to read them too.
For one, it has a lot of exclamation points in it, which I generally interpret as a crutch for weak writing. Also, Hunter rarely uses "he said" or "she said" preferring instead "meowed, responded, purred, snapped, suggested, answered, called, growled" etc. Searching for the kidnapped kits, Firepaw and Graypaw lead Ravenpaw to a barn where he can be safe and have company, living with a loner named Barley, short black-and-white tom.
Firepaw then leads a rescue party with Yellowfang to rescue the lost kits in ShadowClan territory and emerges victorious. Brokenstar and his followers are banished from the Clan. Tigerclaw, still trusted by the Clan, suspects Firepaw knows his secret. Because of their heroism on the rescue party, Firepaw and Graypaw are promoted to warriors by Bluestar, who gives them their warrior names, Fireheart and Graystripe. Yellowfang is promoted to medicine cat. Graystripe and Fireheart sit vigil, promising to protect the Clan with their lives.
The story is told in a third person point of view following the protagonist Firepaw. The narration stays with Firepaw until the next series, Warriors: The New Prophecy , in which the point of view alternates between cats since the authors felt that "we'd really told Firestar's story, and so we wanted to get a fresh viewpoint".
The style of the book has also been compared to the Redwall series by Brian Jacques. A reviewer for The Plain Dealer wrote that the book "is patterned in the style of classics by J. Tolkien or Brian Jacques". The book has a lexicon with certain different names for foreign objects. A Children's Literature review noted the words "kittypet" and "twoleg" which mean housecat and humans respectively.
In the book, instead, of using "said", Cary uses the word "mewed". This was criticized with the reviewer writing "that 'he mewed', 'she purred', and 'the warrior mewed', which pass for cat talk, grows old fast". However, they must also be part of the world they know; Holmes originally gave Tigerclaw the name Hammerclaw until one of the editors pointed out the cats wouldn't know what a hammer is.
At the same time, more names become available as the cat's world becomes more diverse. Harper Collins originally requested that Holmes write a "fantasy story on feral cats". Though troubled on what to write about at first, Holmes realized she could add human themes and issues into the book such as "war, politics, revenge, doomed love, religious conflict".
The novel was picked to be part of the young adult fantasy genre due to its increasing popularity. Cherith Baldry feel that the growth of genre is due to the fact that "fantasy is something very deeply rooted in the human mind, not just for children".
Fantasy stories are able to deal with human emotions helping readers to deal with them in the real world. Another Erin Hunter , Kate Cary felt that fantasy books such as Harry Potter "is a sign of a deepening need for fantasy to brighten our lives".
She describes how as a child she was far less restricted than today's children whose days are structured and scheduled.
Publishers Weekly noted that themes such as family, friendship and responsibility are also taught in the warrior code, the set of rules that the Clans must follow. Other themes include "death and spirituality and family and relationships".
Another theme found throughout the book is the hardship of life in the wild. Reviews have note how the story does not cover up the hardships of Clan life. School Library Journal commented on how the story describes the hardships and difficulties of a feral cat's life in detail and how there is no sugarcoating of the violence. Into the Wild received generally positive reviews. Booklist thought the novel "spine-tingling" and noted that "the cat characters are true to their feline nature, making this sure to appeal to fans of Clare Bell 's long-popular Ratha's Creature and its sequels and also to followers of Brian Jacques ' ongoing Redwall series.
The review also praised the world of the cats and themes put into the book. The review also felt that there was too many supporting characters, but "there are standouts who give dimension to the tale". The amount of violence was also noted in the review. Snapping bones, flowing blood, and sudden death abundantly demonstrate how these cats walk on the thin edge of survival". The review noted how teens would see how hard it is for Firepaw to fit in.
