    1. I'd like to start by noting that this is by far the best YA book I've read in some time. I haven't gotten this completely ensconced in the world of a YA book's narrative since first reading the Gone series (not that there is anything similar about the two). Maybe it has something to do with my deep love for anthropomorphized animals in literature (Watership Down, the Redwall series) and also the fact that I ate and breathed Animorphs growing up (I largely contribute my deep, extreme love for rea [...]

    2. Difficult to categorize or to explain, this book begins with an observation on the cruelty of humans toward anyone who is considered too ugly. Myron Horowitz, 13, is horribly disfigured, and most of those who meet him cannot bear to look at his face. When I first began reading the book, I thought that it would essentially be a book about bullying since Myron, not surprisingly, is picked on by others at his Pennsylvania school. But before I could settle down to read with that theme in mind, the a [...]

    3. This is not what I expected, and I loved it. A horribly disfigured boy lives through the shame of his affliction and how people respond to his presence, but draws a line when the bullying begins. How he fights back, he doesn't know, and the bully isn't talking. This is when his life takes a turn for the paranormal, and strange people appear in his life, claiming to be shapeshiftings, and that he is one too. He isn't sure about himself, but they prove their own abilities early on. The immortal ly [...]

    4. I stumbled onto this book at Midtown Comics (getting my X-Files Season 10 fix, if you must know) and boy is it weird and delightful. At first I was thinking, "oh, this is going to be a sort of Neil-Gaiman-meets-Lewis-Carroll type thing, maybe even a bit Harry Potteresque," but I am pleased to tell you that it's smarter and funnier and darker than all of those things. And the ending - !!! Read it!

    5. I describe this bizarre, hilarious book as, "Going Bovine meets Animorphs." Impossible to define or categorize. Talking to my husband about it, I couldn't even explain the plot, but I enjoyed Myron, his adventures, and the unique world-building.

    6. I made it to about the halfway point of the book before dropping it. I simply cannot continue, not with the build up of frustration, confusion and utter boredom that I feel from reading this. The book, despite its promising premise, is very superficially written. The narration is inconsistent, the events jumbled and confusingly written, and the writing just too harsh for me personally. As soon as I began reading I got the idea of what the author's style is like, but after several repetitions of [...]

    7. Review can also be found on Booksource Readers are led to believe that Myron is 13, but small for his age. His face is horribly disfigured by an accident, which he does not remember, nor anything of his life before. Because of his deformed features, Myron has a severe bullying problem. One of the bullies gives him an injury that should be fatal. Because he recovers with supernatural speed, Myron suspects he isn’t an ordinary child. No one, not even Myron himself, knows what he is until the ver [...]

    8. This is a copy of my review posted on underagrayskyIf you take Roald Dahl's James & the Giant Peach, Lewis Carrol's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass, and Dan Brown's DaVinci Code and combine them all together into one book, then you'll have an idea of what Immortal Lycanthropes is like to read. It was a definite wild ride. I don't think I've ever read anything quite like this book (well, maybe The Night Circus, but I didn't really like that book). has Immortal Lycan [...]

    9. I've never read anything quite like this, and I can't quite classify it--and I don't mean that it "has a good personality" (though it does). You should totally date this book. It's just that it's marketed for ages 12 and up, so technically it's older middle grade? But it has YA sensibilities and an adult voice, so I guess it's more of a crossover book. I guess "12 and up" really is the best description, but you have to shelve it somewhere, right? But everyone should read it!Anyway, it's about a [...]

    10. This Book puts a whole new spin on the term Were-animals. in this story the character have the ability to choose when they change into their animal forms- in fact it is suggested that they were animals first, and then assumed humans forms later. the story is about deformed teenage lycanthrope named Myron, who is first picked on mercilessly by bullies, and then whisked away by another set of people who claim he is a lycan (lycanthrope). it is told from the point of view of another lycan, who by t [...]

    11. So here's something I didn't expect this book to be: hysterically funny. Myron is a horribly disfigured teenager whose life is turned upside down by the sudden knowledge that he's an immortal lycanthrope--a were-mammal who can turn back and forth from human. Except that Myron has no memories before his horrible accident five years ago. He doesn't think he's really terribly immortal, and he certainly doesn't know what animal he is. This is the story of his journey across the US, meeting various c [...]

    12. Like some other reviewers have mentioned, the story told within Immortal Lycanthropes by Hal Johnson was not what I was expecting and I really, really enjoyed that! Loved, loved, loved the pacing of this story! Loved the menagerie of quirky characters, the many twists & turns the storyline took . . . there were no dull moments! I also loved Myron and would enjoy reading of his further adventures!

    13. Although confusing,chaotic, and the writing style not fully matured, it is fun, clever and interesting to the end. The writer knows how to tell a story with aplomb. I would not call this a simple read, however. I was continually referencing characters. Now that I know who's who, a sequel is in order. More Myron and all the other delightful Lycanthropes!

    14. It is really hard to describe this book. It is sad, funny, smart, strange, and magical. I loved it. It is beautiful, in content and form (it has gorgeous illustrations throughout). Everyone should read it!

    15. I found it quite entertaining, and the illustrations (which I didn't expect to even be in the ebook version) were lovely.

    16. Fun read, great alternative to the same old, same old YA novel. Some moments of levity and enough nuance I definitely want to hear more.

    17. found this book in the St. Lukes library then bought it at a book sale. I decided to read this book because my brother hated it and since my brother and I are nearly complete opposites I decided to read it. Eventually I came to like the book for its wacky ideas and plot.The book is about a boy called Myron Horowitz. A 13 year old boy who is bullied for being disfigured, by that I mean ugly, then is beaten mercilessly to the brink of death. After surviving his brutal beating he finds himself to b [...]

    18. I keep going back and forth about whether to rate it 3 or 4 stars. I've settled with 4 because. Although I'm not the biggest fantasy reader, I got pulled into a story about a group of lycanthropes (which means any animal that can change into a human). In this novel, the lycanthropes (all are mammals, by the way) are immortal, and can only be killed by another lycanthrope. The main character, Myron, is a lycanthropes who doesn't realize he is one. The book is an adventure story in which Myron att [...]

    19. Ok of the stranger books I've read. A really interesting premise with some very memorable characters. Writing was witty. Some slow periods in the middle of the book and a strange ending. Not necessarily disappointing, just strange and not quite what I was expecting.

    20. If I didn't have to read this for the Library Materials Review Committee, I would have stopped after about 25 pages. This book just was not my style.

    21. Immortal Lycanthropes. Just from the title I knew I had to give this book a try. From the synopsis, the story sounded even more interested. The cover is gorgeous and after I received my review copy from the publisher, I was in love with all of the beautiful illustrations inside. Unfortunately, while I did enjoy the story, I wasn't in love with it.Our narrator is named Arthur. He himself is actually involved very little in the story, other than the telling of it. The story follows Myron Horowitz, [...]

    22. Myron Horowitz is an especially ugly kid. He was found wandering a country road looking more like hamburger than an 8 year old. Multiple surgeries to repair his face saved his life at the cost of horrified and averted looks from strangers. In addition to being disfigured, Myron stopped growing after the accident and is now an unusually small 13 year old and a favorite target of bullies. But when one particularly brutal bully picks on him in the school cafeteria something happens that leaves his [...]

    23. Recommended with Caution [return][return]Myron Horowitz lives with his adoptive parents in Pennsylvania and becomes the victim of relentless bullying. He looks like he is 8 years old and has horrible scars on his face. Suddnely, life changes for Myron because he realizes that he is some sort of immortal lycanthrope and he goes on the run. He meets other lycanthropes along the way, but none of them can be trusted and they are all trying to kill each other. Myron has no idea what kind of animal he [...]

    24. I had high hopes for this book because I usually like stories in which people constantly have to hide their identity. I kind of expected the protagonist to go through the same predicament as a lycanthrope, but he never truly struggled with this. Regardless, I am also not too fond with the story writing in this book. I felt that there were too many conflicts and mysteries that were not resolved satisfactorily enough. Thus, the story overall didn't feel very complete or fulfilling, especially towa [...]

    25. The title of this book is a bit misleading. As far as I remember, there wasn't a single lycanthrope in the story. Nor were there (gratefully) any sparkling vampires. There were more than enough therianthropes ("humans able to metamorphose into animals through shapeshifting"). So, certain animals, one per species, can turn into a "human", however, their nature is more animal-like than man-like. None of the therianthropes in the book were trustworthy; humans are bad enough; these were worse. In fa [...]

    26. This book was definitely not what I thought it was going to be. The idea and concept of this book was fantastic but I feel like it was poorly executed by Hal Johnson. He could have written such an amazing book about a young boy finding out what he really is. However that was not done. The plot was poorly developed and a lot of what Johnson was saying was just the various characters rambling on about what they have been through during their long lives. I wouldn't really recommend this book just b [...]
