Lists with This Book. May 06, Julie rated it really liked it Shelves: Ahhhhh, finally I feel like this series is hitting its stride! April’s internal voice doesn’t enchznted out as much as the cast did in Animorphs — I, also, thought this book was narrated by Jalil at first, until I remembered enchantwd was the Arthurian book.
I also think the character dynamics are getting even more depth now, the group both tearing into each other and finally starting to offer real comfort to one another by the end. And I love it for April’s observations on each of her boys, and her relationships with each of them: Sorry, I just had to mention it one more time.
No, wait — I guess I am entirely unsurprised tbh, considering they’re two white boys who are also rivals. I love Arthuriana, everworlld Merlin. This book is also important because enchantd you get to see a lot more of Senna, and so she’s less of a cipher, more of a real girl — still a witch, still powerful, but you start seeing the cracks in the facade, her weaknesses and fragilities and attempts to keep this situation under control but she’s out of her depth, and b there’s direction.
By the end, they finally come up with a plan and an idea of how they want to tackle Everworld. They’re starting to cohere as a group and to know encahnted other, which is wonderful to see.
It’s a theme that’s near and dear to my heart, considering things like American Gods or Terry Pratchett’s Discworld: Galahad’s awareness of his own half-real status is a little touching, thf little sad; he knows his own existence is in question, and it shakes him, but he still perseveres.
And where David’s crutch is heroism, Christopher’s humour, Jalil’s logic, April’s is acting and maybe also her Christian faith; it’s nice to see a character who’s a believer but not in a way that feels like it’s being shoved down your throat. She puts on different roles to eerworld the situation, and taps into past acting experience to try to get by in Everworld.
Getting into her head, you get the impression that she isn’t quite so cool and calm and resourceful as she appears, but she’s such a good actress that the others can’t quite tell. Yet by the end, she’s also run-down and ragged and tired of wrestling the boys’ testosterone blowups, and understandably so. Have I mentioned how amazing she is? That wouldn’t really work for him. He wants us all to see him as some kind of direct, straightforward man-of-action type.
What he wills himself to be. But he wears his bruises and scars on the outside, out in plain view where anyone, at least any girl or everword, can see them. David thinks no one sees the insecurity, no one sees the uncertainty. If he just keeps talking tough and gritting his teeth and racing toward each new danger, we’ll all forget the failings we’ve seen; we’ll buy the image.
We’ll forget how he broke down before Loki. We’ll somehow not see the shadows cast by earlier failings, failings that gnaw at his insides during every quiet moment. We’ll never ask whether his own fear is what makes him brave. It’s what makes him comical and fascinating and even a little wonderful, entee at the same time. Christopher keeps trying to convince himself that life is one big sitcom. Like he’d be able to make sense of it all if he could just go back and watch the entire I Love Lucy oeuvre.
The world is too complicated for Christopher. Not that he’s not intelligent, he is. But he needs the world to make sense, and he needs it to fit, to be predictable. He everworlc the big pendulum to swing in a narrow arc, not too far. And when it doesn’t, he takes the world and forces it into place, organizes it with humor and narrow-mindedness.
He’ll chop off the ends of the arc.
Kill it with a joke. Is someone too near to touching his heart? Push the person away with a harsh cheap shot guaranteed to alienate. Now, Jalil does do “theory. And of the four of us, he remains the most opaque to me. Also the most interesting. Jalil believes in nothing but a reality that can be demonstrated in a laboratory, written up everwogld a paper, and then replicated in another lab.
So he says, and I believe everwoorld.
Enter the Enchanted
I have the respect for him that believers sometimes have for nonbelievers. He’s not lukewarm, not half in and half out, not just covering his ass, not pretending to a belief everworlx he doesn’t live. Entter looks out for himself, so he says, and that I don’t entirely believe. It’s him I look to instinctively for support. Real fear, not the artificial fear you get parachuting or bungee jumping. It’s easy to tell the difference between the real thing and the fake: If you have any desire to yell, “Yee-hah!
Real fear makes you want to beg and plead and pray, Please let me live, please, please let me live. It makes you lose control over your own ths, over your own mind. It evwrworld you want to vomit. It makes you so tired. We rode that way, me on his lap, him scanning the trees and the bushes, no doubt wondering how he’d fight with me on his lap.
After a while my loopy, feverish brain settled on a simple problem. How do I tell a legend that I have to pee? Then, just as I was thinking I’d try something Shakespearian, you know, ‘Prithee, milord, but I must fain squat in yon bushes, else will I dampen thy attractive knee,’ we were there.
Make you not believe what you’ve seen, or else believe what never happened. He wheeled, pushed his face close to Jalil, rose as high as he could without standing on his toes. Is that straight up enough for you?
But now it was Christopher, too. He shot a look at me, expecting me to intervene. Well, I was sick of them all. Sick of rushing around like a fire-woman armed with an estrogen bucket, putting out testosterone fires.
We gotta be sensitive because she’s a witch? Neither would you, David, except she has you whipped. Have you had a vision? Like, you happened a long time ago. Then slowly, hesitantly, he asked, “Was I real?
In your world, in the Old World? Was I more than a legend, more than a tale? Was I a man? I don’t know,” Christopher said.
