Zeke Speaks: Thoughts from a Library Legend

by missphd

Having read 340+ books and securing myself a comfortable place on the Neopian Book Award's High Score Table, I feel somewhat qualified to share my humble opinions about some of the books I have had the chance to read during my time in Neopia. Check out my Pet Page if you want to see some more details about my quest for knowledge.

Poogle Pages
My owner, Missphd, owned a Poogle (for a very short time) when she first came to Neopia. She adopted her from the pound and knew very little about her, about where she came from, or about Poogles in general. She turned to me for help and I turned to the pages of a popular book at the Bookstore called Poogle Pages.

Poogle Pages is a MUST for any Poogle owner. I found the contents very helpful, and it helped my owner's relationship with her Poogle grow stronger.

First, if you ever wondered where your Poogle came from or who his or her parent's might be, check this book's EXTENSIVE genealogy section. Every Poogle in Neopia is listed and it makes it very simple to identify family members.

Next, if you are a new Poogle owner like she was, check out the Helpful Hint section. It is jam packed full of helpful hints like Poogle favorite foods, games, songs, and more. If we hadn't taken the time to look these facts up, her Poogle would have been very unhappy, indeed!

I particularly liked the Famous Poogles in History section. I think it is very important for any pet to know not only where they came from, but also a little about their heritage. Being able to show a dear pet some other similar pets that did great things in Neopia not only makes them happy, but it gives them great self-confidence.

Overall, my rating for Poogle Pages is: 4 1/2 out of 5 stars

Zafara Crossword Puzzles
I always like a challenging crossword puzzle, and when this new puzzle book came out in the Neopian Bookstore on December 14th, I couldn't wait to get my paws on it!

This book is a good book for any level of crossword puzzler, because it is divided into sections based on the level of difficulty of the puzzle. The first section of the book was a bit too easy for me, but would be great for new Neopian puzzlers or those who want to work on a puzzle, but don't want to make their heads hurt thinking of difficult answers.

The mid-level puzzles were still quite challenging, but not so hard that they couldn't be completed. I spent most of my time in this section of the book.

The last section of the book, entitled "Brain Busters" really should be reserved for die-hard crossword puzzle fanatics. These puzzles had a variety of cryptic puzzles, puzzles with no numbers and puzzles in foreign Neopian languages.

In all, this is a great book for a crossword lover who wants a challenge or even for one who is just learning.

Overall, my rating for Zafara Crossword Puzzles is: 4 out of 5 stars

Home Surgery for Jetsams
I knew this book would be horrible when I first saw it. The size, the color, the picture of that feeble looking Jetsam on the front! The first thing that popped into my mind was, "BOOOOOOOOOOOORING!"

Since I don't even like Jetsams that much anyway, I don't know why I even bothered to pick it up and dust off the cover. And let me tell you…by the amount of dust on the book jacket, it probably hadn't been read in ages!

The book boringly detailed how Jetsams can perform surgery on themselves (and other foolish fish) at home when they get hurt doing silly things around the house. I suppose if this book had a redeeming quality, it would be the list of Neopian medical supplies and household cures it had in Appendix B.

Like I said before, and I will say again, "BOOOOORING!" It was so boring the only real satisfaction I got out of the silly thing was when I ate it!

Overall rating for Home Surgery for Jetsams is: ½ a star
