Reader's Thoughts

Sadia

the best book in the world

Joseph Sanchez

This is a great sequel to a great book. I enjoyed reading this up to the final battle versus Sally Bones. I expected a more climactic final battle, but was disappointed in the engagement. However, the story is told well, keeping a reader interested from beginning to end. I wished for more interaction between Varjak and Jalal. I find that the lessons he learned from him were vital to his survival, but I also believe that many of the lessons could be used by the children who read this book, too. Open Mind, Awareness, Hunting, and Trusting Yourself come to mind as being realistically beneficial. In this book Varjak learns that he cannot succeed by himself. Nobody can. He enlists the aid of Cludge and his family, the Scratch Sisters, Holly, Tam, Mrs. Moggs, the 'Orrible Twins, and believe it or not, Razor. Even thinking that you have mastered everything, you will always discover that there is at least one who is more skilled or more knowledgable. It is an enlightening tale, full of action, and fun to read.

It's rare a sequel is better than the original story, especially when the first book is the brilliant, Smarties Prize winning Varjak Paw. Yet SF Said has achieved the seemingly impossible - making The Outlaw Varjak Paw one of the best sequels I've ever read. The book covers much darker ground than the original. A more intricate and complex plot introduces us to a range of wonderful new characters along with the old favourites, and Varjak's ancestor Jalal appears to mine even richer seams of ancient wisdom to help Varjak confront his nemesis, the terrifying Sally Bones. Deeper, sadder and yet ultimately more uplifting, the award winning Outlaw Varjak Paw is a sequel not to be missed.

** spoiler alert ** This is the second Varjak Paw book and he's on the streets with Holly, Tam, and Cludge. (Holly and Tam are cats, Cludge is a dog) Varjak Paw is on the run from Sally Bones and her gang because if they find you, they'll cut of your ears and tail, the two things that make a cat a cat. So Varjak Paw plans to fight them but he has to form a small army first....

Just as the last one. I read it the whole way on our Trip to Palm Springs in the third grade. -laughs-

This book is also good it's about Varjak learning 7 battle skills to defeat the evil sally bones.

Vivianne Kacal

The continuing adventures of Varjak. Some scary moments.

This was pretty much along the same lines as the first one, though the plot overall moved towards a more obvious conclusion. There was one surprisingly touching part, though, which I really wasn't expecting from a book about talking cats...

I read this when I was ten or twelve, and I absolutely loved it. I had no idea it was a sequel, it seemed to me a stand-alone book, but I kept reading it over and over. I loved everything about it, all of the characters and events. There were some scenes I even repetitively went back to. It's an easy, quick read, it's not too violent and gruesome for young readers, it's enjoyable, and I still love it and keep it safe in my closet so it can't get ruined. This is one of those books that comes to mind when someone asks me what are some of my favorite stories. I would suggest this to anyone who likes to read fiction from the perspective of an animal, especially fans of the Warriors series.

This sequel to Said's Varjak Paw was even better than the first book, and stands alone pretty well. The plotting is much tighter than the first, and I read this pretty much in one gulp.Varjak has mastered the Seven Skills taught to him by his ancestor, Jalal, and saved the cats of his town from the Vanishings that plagued them in the first novel. But without the fear of Vanishings as a distraction, the fearsome Sally Bones and her gang have seized control of the entire city. No cat who is not part of her gang can hunt freely or move about unhindered, and those who disobey face fearsome retribution. It doesn't take long for Varjak and his friends to be labeled outlaws, and soon it becomes clear that if Varjak wants to end his days as a Free Cat, he must face Sally Bones head on -- and she is the only other cat he has met that also knows the Seven Skills.

Enjoyable but not as good as the first one. Time I went on to a classic!

Paperback Percy London

I book most purrfect.

Joana

This book is about a cat named Varjak Paw and he has to defeat his enemy Sally Bones. They both know some magical power.

Samantha Lindsay

This was one of my favourite book as a child/teen. I was about to head of into high school where I came across this book accidently. This was one of the novels that started my love for books. I'd recommend this book for teens or any cat lover out there. S.F.Said done a wonderful job and I have to thank him for writing this book. This story follows a warrior cat called Varjak Paw who is the leader of a gang. It is written from the cats point of view and it follows Varjak Paws many adventures.

Sparrowwing

This book was so intense! I love Varjak Paw and his friends!
