    2. "The old maxim that every action has a reaction is true, but when you start messing with time travel, that reaction could take place in a whole different universe." —Professor Charles SmartLet me get straight to the point and say that The Hangman's Revolution was brilliant. Sure, I think every book I read by Eoin Colfer in the past was pretty brilliant too, but this one it was simply fantastic. One of Colfer's best books so far!This book takes us back to modern-day London after the events of t [...]

    3. Thoughts after seeing the cover reveal:I'm going a bit Indiana Jones on the gas masks. "Gas masks. Why did it have to be gas masks?"Are you my mummy?Yes, I went there. I went there and I'm not coming back any time soon.

    4. Eoin Colfer has a way with villains. They're not *just* evil overlords, (I mean they're not good-doers) but they're people who think they are doing the right thing and that makes such a difference. I just love it! This series is significantly darker and more serious than the Artemis Fowl books, I can't say that enough. But even in the midst of crazy-bad happenings, his signature wit and snark shine through without fail (and with the Cockney accents, it makes it all the better.) I especially love [...]

    5. Ή παραμεγάλωσα, ή πραγματικά η σειρά αυτή έχει σκοπό να προσεγγίσει μόνο παιδιά και να μην μπορεί σε καμία περίπτωση να διαβαστεί στα σοβαρά από ενήλικες. Δε λέω, έχει τις καλές τις στιγμές, το χιούμορ του συγγραφέα είναι αρκετά ευχάριστο, ίσως και διασκεδαστικό στα σημεία, [...]

    6. This book was fantastic. I really enjoyed the jokes. I highly recommend it. There is tons of adventure,and jokes and near death experiences and stuff.

    7. Jotkut asiat (Malarkey ja Witmeyer!!) oli vähän wtf ja välillä käännekohdat seurasivat toisiaan vähän liian tiheään, mutta Colfer-fani mikä Colfer-fani, joten tykkäsin.

    8. Second in the W.A.R.P. science fiction series for middle grade readers. Set in London, it involves time travel.You don't stand a hope of understanding this mess without having read The Reluctant Assassin, 1.My TakeDo NOT miss the “Might Have Been” chapter. Without it, you’ll be even more confused.It’s not just a trip back in time, it’s a trip into the slimy, vicious underworld of Victorian England with its cant and outlook. And Colfer does very well at setting this scene. He certainly [...]

    9. love the return of Colfer's regular snarky humor. I felt like Chevron and Riley's positions were more believable in the context of this story. The treatment of alternate timelines was fresh and interesting. I missed how truly evil Garrick was in book 1. There wasn't as much personal interaction with the Divine Colonel Box, which made the tension less for me. My favorite thing about this installment in the saga is getting to know the King of the Rams/Commodore Otto Malarkey better. The more you g [...]

    10. I decided to read this book as I read the first one. I like this book as it has great adventure and thrill throughout the book. I like books with action and suspense which it had. I learned that even if you nothing about something you can learn about it extremely quick in pressing circumstances. A setting which I found interesting was early Victorian London. It was very dirty and full of pollution. There were parts that had poverty and sickness and other parts that have the rich and the wealthy, [...]

    11. This is a most enjoyable read! The combination of very effective humour and exciting action is perfectly balanced. Now and again Colfer slows the plot with passages of historical exposition but these are so well written and useful for creating the world of the novel that one readily accepts them. Riley, Chevie, and Malarkey are all present and as engaging as ever, but two new characters,The Thundercats, steal nearly every scene they are in. Second novels of trilogies frequently become plot bridg [...]

    12. Taattua Colferia, helppoa ja vauhdikasta luettavaa. Sukkelaa sanailua oli ajoittain ehkä jopa liikaakin, mutta ei häiritsevästi.

    13. The story: Riley and Chevie are back, but there are complications: on her return from Victorian London, Chevie finds herself in the wrong world--a world where an evil plan hatched by WARP agents in 1890s London brought a brutal regime to power, a government that controls everything a hundred years later. Can two kids figure out what happened and prevent it? Possibly--but it'll take some help from the Battering Rams and their king, Otto Malarkeywhich could easily end up making everything worse!Ju [...]

    14. Full review at bronzelock619/2017/10/the-hangmans-revolution-warp-2-eoinml.This book started out in a completely different tone from the previous one in the series. The first part became a dystopian novel, and the Chevie from the Box Empire, which the old Chevie called Cadet Chevie, had such a different voice. Everything changed so much that it felt like reading another series altogether. I really miss the old snarky Chevie for half of the book, as the Cadet Chevie grew up under a repressive reg [...]

    15. Good read. I'm now more familiar with the characters. I'll start reading the next book later. *****"While most people do have many potential true loves, there are those individuals who are so unique that no one could reasonably be expected to love them These individuals rarely meet and so generally live their lives alone, but occasionally these alphas do cross paths, and when that happens, the attraction is instant, mutual, and irresistible. The Chinese have a saying: 'Love itself is calm; turbu [...]

    16. Easily the wittiest book of the series (and a few conundrums by Professor Smart that still make me think)- it imagines a world that happened because of the time program, and even gets to the ethics of this fascism, sort of (France is the enemy but there's no apartheid, and no World War I or II) and the idea of simple answers being easiest and maybe not best.A thought that stays with me (Colfer was busy on this one): you have the opportunity to go back in time and kill Rasputin, so you do, but by [...]

    17. After the first book, the setting and characters start out as a bit of a surprise in this one. The characters seem just as confused as the readers, so it's fun. A. few new characters extend the cast and our familiar characters get a little more experience and depth. The adventures continue, and it is an exciting and dangerous ride. How will the kids outsmart the bad guy(s) this time? What will the repercussions be? I add a bit of caution to my recommendation- turns out that no one in this series [...]

    18. I liked the characters in the first book so I wanted to read more about themI had forgotten a lot of details so it took me a little to reorient myself. Storyline is basically that one of the main characters, Chevie, travels back in time and tries to stop events that lead to a dystopian future. Lots of scenes towards the end of the book with sewers and rats that were nasty and I hope to soon forget!On to the next book!

    19. BuchgestaltungWie auch bei Teil eins, kann die englische Gestaltung meiner Meinung nach, nicht mit der deutschen mithalten. Ich finde das ganze viel zu plastisch und künstlich, während bei der Aufmachung vom Loewe Verlag viel Liebe zum Detail in die Gesamtaufmachung gesteckt wurde. Nicht nur der Umschlag, sondern auch das Buch an sich wurde mit Details versehen, die inhaltlich einfach Top passen. Der Titel Klungerfischer passt zudem auch etwas besser, weil Malarkey doch mehr eine Rolle spielt, [...]

    20. Misaligned memory mindwarp, rewind- The Boxite empire is here to stay, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't here yesterday- Riley and Chevie of the FBI, in the London tower- Steampunk at high tide- here to stop a time revision, maybe spark a revolution. Nothing's gone as planned, and now the old man's dead. Again.

    21. Usually the second book of a trilogy is depressing and obviously a bridge to the third book. Not so in this case. The story is quite engaging and even though you know a third book is coming, it is not as obvious that you are leading up to it. Really enjoyed the alternate current time scenario.

    22. An easy read, creative concept. However, some things were a little too easy for plot convenience. some frustration around the good guy leaving bad guy unconscious.

    23. After returning to the present following the adventures in the first WARP book, Chevie finds herself not quite right in the head. Probably because the present has changed and that timeline's Chevie only knows life in the Boxite empire, while the Chevie we know thinks this reality is horribly messed up. Unfortunately for Chevie, both versions of herself are sharing one brain and body. This proves to be unhealthy in the new future where everyone worships Lord Box, who took over all the known world [...]

    24. Inhalt:Kadettin Chevie Savano hat diese verrückten Träume und Wahnvorstellungen. Die "Verräterin" in ihrem Inneren flüstert ihr ein, dass ihr allmächtiger Gott Colonel Box nicht der ist, für den ihn alle halten sollen. Nach mehreren "Auffälligkeiten" wird sie durch zwei Thundercats - Mitglieder der Eliteeinheit des Boxitenreichs - zum Direktor persönlich geführt. Und auch hier spricht wieder die Verräterin aus ihr, die etwas von einem Smart erzählt - einem Mitarbeiter des Imperiums un [...]

    25. Inhalt:Nur eine kurze Begegnung hat das gesamte 21. Jahrhundert verändert: Anstatt wieder in ihr bekanntes Jahrzehnt zurückzukehren, ist Chevie nun keine FBI-Agentin mehr, sondern eine Kadettin des "Boxitenreiches". Doch Kadettin Savano hat sich einige Probleme eingehandelt, an denen nur die "Verräterin" schuld ist. Immer wieder flüstert diese Stimme in Chevies Ohr ihr ungehörige Dinge zu. Dinge, die gar nicht sein könnenUnterdessen im Jahr 1899: Der Grosse Savano, besser bekannt als Riley [...]

    26. There were several long historyrants, which were boring. Overall, lacks the twists and complexity of the Artemis Fowl series.
