Bone: Old Man's Cave: 09/17/10

cover art

Old Man's Cave the sixth Bone book by Jeff Smith started off with a bang. Thorn finds Fone and Smiley and with Ted's help leads them to the Old Man's Cave. They meet up with Phoney and Grandma but Rock Jaw needs Phoney to see something at a mountain. The Locust attacks and it becomes clear just how dangerous the Hooded One is.

With all this action going on I realized I had missed something. I was sitting her looking at a giant talking mountain lion wondering why I had forgotten about him. I had to go back through my reading notes (which are extensive) and there I found my answer. I hadn't read volume 5, Rock Jaw.

The action in Old Man's Cave is heart pounding. I tore through the book in about an hour. I literally locked myself in my room so I could finish it. I don't normally hide when I'm reading, only when the book is really good and I don't want to be disturbed until I finish it.
