Strange Talents

I was absolutely enamored by the book and tried for a long time to get my hands on the sequel but somehow could never find it. I remember wanting to be a firebrand for the long time, after reading this. I think, if I could find the sequel even now at one of my local book stores I’d get it and read it in an instant.

I remember liking it a lot. I liked the idea that these characters had special powers, like the X-men. I found this book, again, in I re-read it then, when I was 23 and found blace to be a short and easy read, obviously, since it is gears toward a younger audience.

I never read the sequal. Feb 28, Andrew Obrigewitsch rated it really liked it Shelves: I read this when I was a kid and loved it. It was the first fantasy book I read on my own. So it has a special place in my heart, I’m sure if I where to reread it I would not like it as much, like maybe a one or two star.

But for a kid it’s great stuff I I can find a copy I will get it for my son. Jan 05, Noor Jahangir rated it liked it. I have fond memories of this book from my teen years. I know I liked it then, so I scored it boade stars.

Can’t remember the plot and haven’t read it recently, so the points are just for mere nostalgia. From what i can remember 16 years ago this was great. Kids with cool powers and evil monsters for them to overcome. Shame its out of print! May 21, Bill Hice rated it really liked it. Read it in sixth grade. Probably not as good now. Sep 25, Karen bllade it poisoneg was amazing. I loved this and other books by Douglas Hill since childhood. Aug 08, Aaron rated it liked it.
