    One thought on “The Story Traveler”

    1. Oh gosh, talk about disappointment.So,before I'd begin this review, let me give you an overview of what's this all about. The novel is centered on a girl named Haley, who lost her parents in a car accident, and therefore had to stay with her grandparents who then decided to send her off to boarding school. Everything seemed fine, until Haley decided to take the dare to stay at their old Hamilton building and she discovered a door and it lead her to a new, "breathtaking" adventure.No. No thank, y [...]

    2. The title of this book gave me so much hope that I really thought I would like this, but it didn't work for me at all. I imagined a story where we got to read about a girl who traveled from story to story trying to save the world from some evil trying to rid the world of its classic literature; I expected to fall into a rabbit hole of stories .What I got was a confusing story with poor character development, writing that slowly lost its luster as the story progressed, and a blah setting. The onl [...]

    3. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a review copy of this book.This book has the kind of premise that sounds like it should be great, and it was even set in a boarding school (something I'm usually a sucker for for some reason) - but somehow this one just didn't work for me. The idea is that the main characters travel through doors into stories - and every story has another level that is someone else's story.What I didn't like so much was that the characters were not really very well de [...]

    4. Thanks to Netgalley and Helvetic House for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.3.5 Stars rounded down due to uneven pacing and a sadly anti-climatic ending. For 90% of the book I was going for 3.5 stars rounded up but upon finishing the book I just couldn't do it. There was too much that pulled me out of the story to leave it a 4 stars.Haley and Oliver are two friends at an exclusive boarding school called Hamilton. Everyone is pretentious as indicated by the fact all the buildings had name [...]

    5. This book has an awesome premise. I was really excited to read this after reading the blurb. It just fell flat for me. First with the characters. The characters are confusing at times. Sometimes they act nothing like their descriptions. Then there are times when things move quickly and other times when events drag on. Also, some aspects of the book are just random feeling. Your reading and you think you know what you are reading then suddenly, the storyline just changes. The romance was just sho [...]

    6. Unfortunately, I was not able to finish reading this book. The protagonist is so annoying, whining, and arrogant. Not even the plot and setting (things I was mildly interested in) were able to keep me reading.

    7. Disclaminer: I received this book via NetGalley in exchanged for an honest review. All opinions are my own.I came into this book completely blind. I didn't read the synopsis thoroughly-all I knew about it was that it took place in a boarding school and let me tell you-the less you know about this book the better because it really took me by surprised.I have to point out that despite the narrator being 15 years old, which I would consider young adult, this book read like a middle grade adventure [...]

    8. **I'm reviewing this for NetGalley. Thank you for the chance!**I wish I had liked this book as much as I liked the cover.Note: I'm not giving this 1 star because it's a bad book, but because this book didn't mean anything special to me.This is the story of Haley, a 15-year-old girl that used to live with her parents in New York Until her parents are killed in a car accident, so she has to move with her rich maternal grandparents to Connecticut. She used to be tough at school so as to prove that [...]

    9. I recieved a copy of the YA novel from NetGalley. You can find a copy of this review on:thequidnuncblog.wordpressIt is YA novel, and adventure story and brilliant concept executed far worse than it deserves. If Max Candee had dared to go for a full-grown concept on the matter it would have blown my mind a way. I was so excited about reading the novel. You have no idea! The whole idea of worlds being build out of stories on different levels and the demon destroying them, to get to the grand story [...]

    10. RATING: 3.5 STARSReceived a copy from NetGalley in exchange for a honest reviewABOU THE BOOK:Haley Spade is a 15 year old girl. After her parents die, her grandparents took her in but soon they get rid of her. They send her to an exclusive boarding school in Connecticut.Several students believe that the main building of the school is haunted by the ghosts of six students who committed suicide decades ago. Haley doesn’t believe in ghosts, so on a dare, she spends the night alone in the “haunt [...]

    11. Actual rating: 3.5. I got this book from NetGalley for an honest review.Fun and thrillingOr at least, it was thrilling on that one part of the story. For those who reads it, you will know which. This story is so unlike any MG/YA stories. I mean, it's not carbon copy of pjo or hp, it surely doesn't have love triangle (the love-line is still blurry, but I'm not seeing a love triangle, not a serious one at least), and it has an adventure!The boarding school, George Hamilton, is a cool but boring an [...]

    12. *** I GOT A VIRTUAL COPY OF THE BOOK VIA NET GALLEY IN EXCHANGE FOR A HONEST REVIEW *** Actual rating: 3.5/5Cover: 4/5 I actually like the cover, even though it's simple. It reminded me a little of other book covers of books that I must have liked when I was little. Plot: 4/5 I quite liked the idea from which the plot stems: stories are alive, and each of us is part of one of them. When writers or storytellers build a story with their words, they are actually giving it life, and creating a new w [...]

    13. Thanks go to Helvetic House and Netgalley for giving me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.Review:I was expecting great things from this book, but it fell just a little short. That’s not to say that it didn’t have innovative, engaging aspects.The concept is great- a teen who finds herself in a world of stories; layers upon layers of stories retold by the creators with doorways in and out. Stories full of characters as real as you or I- sub characters, main characters, [...]

    14. I really liked Max Candee’sDiary of Anna The Girl Witch, but The Story Traveler was a disappointment.Other than the excellent opening paragraph, I felt like one major thing that it really lacked was a strong beginning. It took a while to get to the bulk of the story and the build up to it didn’t feel very substantial in creating atmosphere or anything for the main characters. This didn’t really improve as it went on: the story went from being meandering and wordy in places to abruptly fast [...]

    15. I was pretty excited about reading this book. It boasted time travel, a King of Cats and even hinted at a ghost story. I thought it would be right up my alley but was left disappointed. It started out quite promising--teenaged Haley gets shipped off to a snobby boarding school after her parents die and her grandparents want to be rid of her. The school sounded amazing and I was actually a bit jealous I didn't go to high school here, especially when I read there was one building that was supposed [...]

    16. Overall this book is not what I was expecting and I am not sure if I liked it. I had a hard time finishing this book (which I did finish, but it took me a long time to get to the end as I'm a slow reader and I wasn't looking forward to continue reading once I was about 2/3 through the book). I think the premises were interesting. I'm not sure what exactly, but if the story was pieced together in a different manner it may have kept my interest. There were parts that were really good, but then the [...]

    17. The Story Traveler by Max Candee is a fantastical adventure set at a boarding school with a very dark history. After the sudden death of her parents, Haley Spade’s reluctant grandparents send her to the George Hamilton Academy. There she makes quick friends who dare her to spend the night in the main hall after she refuses to believe in ghosts. She does and she quickly learns that her friends set her up to see the ghosts. After she caught her friend, Oliver Slater, in the building, they are bo [...]

    18. “The Story Traveler” The main character Haley Spade is curious and adventurous and on a dare wanders the halls of the haunted boarding school in which she has enrolled. The author did an amazing job developing her character. You will fall in love with her and root for her throughout the story. I love that in this story chivalry is not dead. The story is somewhat different from many fantasy stories, the haunted boarding school with its magical creatures and a shape shifting crow and there are [...]

    19. One upon a timeSo, what appears to be a gentle little read with our heroine Haley Spade, who’s coming from a broken home, to a rich school, rich grandparents and getting everything she could have. But then, who would have expected a simple dare to lead her away from her small world, into a story of intrigue and adventure and life and death, new friends and enemies and all stops between. The stories were like a maze, twisting, turning and pulling you along at a crisp, but not too fast pace, gat [...]

    20. This book had an interesting concept but the writing was not good at all, and the dialogue and situations between the teenagers so immature. Considering everything that the MCs go through, the odd stitled dialogue and vague relationship/crush stuff at the end is bizarre and very unsatisfying. The other character in this odd triangle is a mean girl, who at the end of the book, needs to be saved. So, furthering the weird dynamic between the two MCs, Oliver and Hayley, you get that if there is a se [...]

    21. What if every story has a place --out there somewhere--where it is real? What if the more times a story is told, the more real it becomes? What if you could figure out how to get inside a story -- and find out you have to start somewhere else, another story first. Navigating the places stories touch then becomes an adventure and a critical danger -- you have to be able to get home when all is said and done.As the publishers say it: "a dizzying adventure of stories made real, stories within stori [...]

    22. Fifteen-year-old Haley Spade is enrolled in an exclusive boarding school in Connecticut. This school has a grim mythology: Everyone believes that the angry ghosts of six students who committed suicide decades ago still haunt its halls. This book needs more work (imho). The first part with Haley arriving in school and the introduction of the story travelling was a fast read, I really enjoyed the part with her walking through the empty school.And directly after that the pace slows down and never g [...]

    23. I enjoyed this YA story based on an orphan living at a boarding school who is plunged into a world where stories create passages to other worlds. It reminded me of The Eyre Affair or the wonderful Sisters Grimm series. The premise was great and the characters good. I felt the story was not really clear in some places and the pacing off at times. Overall though, it was a unique and interesting story. We are setup for a book 2 and I would happily give it a read.Full disclosure - I received a copy [...]

    24. Talking cats, men turning into jackdaws, Gryphons, elves, pixies and how we are all stories. Interesting take on good vs. evil. Reminded me of a cross between the Narnia and Hobbit series. I can see where young people would enjoy the book. Some of the traveling left me a bit confused, but overall, enjoyable read. I received this from Net Galley.

    25. "The Story Traveler" - Max Candee. This book is like kind of like "Inception" in concept, but less scary and more appropriate for children. The characters move through different layers, in this case the layers are stories instead of dreams. I feel like this book is for the younger end of YA readers. I'm guessing that this will end up being a series because it ends an enormous cliffhanger.

    26. I received this book free from NetGalley. You can read my review on my blog at the link below:Once Upon A Book

    28. A very action driven book. I wish there had been a bit more character development. Very unique premise and I loved the way the different story lines went together.

    29. DNF at 26%I took way too long to get into this book and by the time I wanted to finish it, I had already lost interest.
