    1. Jackie on said:

      I thought I would love The Sight because it s about wolves but the author knows nothing about wolf behavior and it s annoying me The things he makes mistakes on are basic behaviors I feel he was lazy and didn t do his research He could have found this stuff out in a matter of minutes For example, all wolves participate in the rearing of the pups, the author has only the females taking care of the pups Fact when pups are born, all members of the pack male and female secrete prolactin, the nurturi [...]

      I love wolves But im not gonna be all OMGZ 1 1 SO INACCURATE ABOUT WOLVES BEHAVIOR and all the blahblahblah.I liked it for its content plain and simple.It was dark, mysterious, exciting, captivating Of course I say this for when I first read this book junior high but even now as a high school student I skimmed through it again and was completely satisfied Lots of light vs dark in this The characters were very lovable and easy to find favorites and feel for them The characters were great and defi [...]

      It was a stunning book Stunning I mean, it hit me and grabbed onto me and sucked me right into it.I guess I do have to admit, it was a hard read 500 pages of very long stuff If you start scanning the book, you get utterly confused.And everyone dies The main character dies All the good characters die It s heartbreaking for the most part DepressingBut it was extremely vivid, and as soon as you re drawn into the story, it is amazing The Sight is that type of book that makes your heart start beating [...]

      Wow Wow is probably the only word that really describes this book From its begining to amazing ending, David Clemet Davies The Sight is definately one of the best books I ve ever read.In its first chapter, Clement Davies introduces us to the strange and dangerous world of ancient Transylvania through the eyes of a wolf Transylvania is both riveting and terrifying, where danger and beauty is everywhere In a vast forest, we meet Huttser and his mate Palla, two alpha wolves, the head pair of a wolf [...]

      Beautiful jacket cover and a wonderful story If you are patient enough, I think you will find this tale of myth and magic to be powerfully captivating This novel might be looked upon as similar to a wolf version of Watership Down I like the style and prose of David Clement Davies, and enjoyed this book enough to order the sequel, Fell.

      This has been on my currently reading for too long without me picking it up or showing the slightest interest in getting back to it I really enjoyed it the first time I read it but it s time for this copy to move along to a new home Melodramatic and overly wordy My brain wants me to keep FELL mainly bc of the glorious cover, but having not finished this I think I may pass that along as well So sorry to Steph and Julie for keeping you guys waiting 3

    8. Julie on said:

      Buddy read with Ashley Stephanie I remember really really loving Fire Bringer, which is what led to reading this book plus WOLVES, I love wolves I thinnnnnk Clement Davies earlier book was better, but my memories are so hazy that it s hard to tell whether it s just nostalgia colouring my view.Ultimately, I m going with 3 stars for this it could go up for some aspects, could go down for others, so I m resting firmly middle of the line.Clement Davies worldbuilding is really the best part of the wh [...]

    9. James Steele on said:

      I m not sure what to make of this story of telepathic wolves It feels like the book is cleaved unevenly in two, so 2 3 of it is bad and the last 1 3 is enjoyable.In this first cleave, the dialogue is horrible, the narration describes too little and action is glazed over so quickly it left me wondering did something just happen In a single paragraph as many as three character s points of view are given, and this flip flopping changes the story s focus so much that it s hard to get a grip on what [...]

      Did Not FinishSometimes after reading a book this is you, OMG, what were they talking about The book was freaking AWESOME And other times you re like, Wow, I really wish I had listened to those hate comments That s me Bad writing, fake wolf behavior, confusing, just to name a few problems.Let me get two things straight first, I LOVE wolves, and I LOVE fantasy So why wouldn t I LOVE this book Let me tell you why I didn t with many examples.Fake Wolf Behavior As Bran padded inside, he pushed accid [...]

      The Sight is a very unique and original book, I m sure there are no books like itE GOOD The characters They all have their own personality, and the author makes sure to always follow the character s rules The ending The ending just seemed to raw and true, as if it happened somewhere As if it was based off a real event The deaths Everyone loves a happy ending, but sometimes they get old I found it was refreshing how most of the wolves died, but a new generation was born in their honor The Sight I [...]

    12. Stephanie on said:

      The last time I read this book, I was in high school about 10 years ago , and I remember really enjoying it a story about a wolf family, with magic and a prophecy to guide the way And that there was a cameo from Clement Davies other book,Fire Bringer The rest of the details I was fuzzy at best on This time, it is a buddy read with Julie and Ashley I will say, this book reads a lot longer than it should there is a lot of depth to the story, with many different elements tied in to create a certain [...]

    13. Anna on said:

      This is the second time I ve tried to read this book after having bought it at like 13, but alas, it was not to be as I ve decided to drop this book again at 50% completion.Firstly, I found the overtly Christian undertones really off putting Davies basically copies stories straight from the Bible and substitutes in wolf characters, including a wolf Jesus, a wolf God, a wolf Adam and Eve and a even Wolf Satan Now, I understand writers hope to give their readers a message in their works, but I lik [...]

    14. Heather on said:

      Manwhat can I say about this book Last read this nearly a decade ago 3.5 stars The story is good but it s greatly flawed It s far too long, it reads as a rehash of Davies first book, Fire Bringer and the deaths are just awful I understand keeping things realistic but Davies just takes it a step too far This book filled me with hopelessness Fire bringer came full circle and left me feeling contented but The Sight just left me sad and confused Also all the lore and stories of Gods etc just didn t [...]

    15. Deanna on said:

      Full Review ibeeeg 2009 05 siThis is a wonderfully written story It is intricate in that the story s tales are woven throughoute tales of superstition, myths, beliefs, truths, discovery, loss, love and sadness The Sight is broken down into three parts The first part was rough was a hard, dry, slow read I think it was because so many of the wolves generational stories of superstition, myths and beliefs were told These stories are very important to the larger story of The Sight but regardless, it [...]

    16. Em on said:

      This book was interesting at first, but then it became severely depressing and than a little confusing I never even finished it but I deffinetly wouldn t recomend it

    17. Angela Johnson on said:

      This book was recommended and learn to me by a friend and it took me a long time to pick it up One of those books that I started and just could not get past the first chapter for whatever reason Determined to be able to return my friend s books I preserved and in hindsight I am glad What a poignant story It s so many things in one superstitions, anthropomorphic, animal instincts, human instincts, lore and tradition, evil and good, truth and lies, hope, family It was truly very interesting and it [...]

    18. Crystal on said:

      David Clement Davies creates a unique culture and belief system for his characters by blending religious paradigms from various religions Using this, he creates the basis for a world in which rich, engaging characters come to life from the pages Although the plot is not necessarily as inventive as this environment he has created, it is a wonderful tale about fate destiny, friendship, family, and growing into one s self against all odds.From the moment you meet the pack, the reader feels a unique [...]

    19. Dassi on said:

      I decided to give this book two stars instead of one because as a novel about wolves it is something That being said, aside from the fact the that characters were wolves, The Sight didn t have anything going for it.First of all the dialogue had issues I am definitely not a fan of the characters using each others names in each line of speech, especially when only two characters are talking Also Clement Davies did not do enough research about wolves Every time he had one of the wolves soaked in sw [...]

    20. Sinn on said:

      I picked up this book because I love wolves It caught my attention several times, but I never bothered to buy it However, when I found it at the library, I jumped at the opportunity Even though I had an idea it dealt with wolves, I was not ready for a beast fable It reminds me of Watership Down.The storytelling in this book was intricate and simply beautiful Clement Davies has a way with words and is able to craft a beautiful world that is very three dimensional and easy to get into Even though [...]

      The moment I stepped in that tiny bookshop, I knew something powerful was headed my way I held a slow pace, taking my time, not missing a single book on all the rows I let my hand rise up, sliding over the coarse spines I kept this up for a while Then all of a sudden, something caught my attention My eyes fluttered across a small, white book, with piercing yellow staring back at me I picked it up, knowing that that petite peice of literature would take me to a place of wonderd so I flipped to th [...]

    22. April on said:

      This is my all time favourite book ever written, this and Watership Down.It has the most descriptive, beautiful writing ever mastered, I have never come across any other author that could write skillfully than David Clement Davies This is why he is my all time favourite author Though I find it disturbing that this book was in the children s section considering how dark, disturbing and gory most of it s content is It is clearly meant for older audiences I read this when I was around 12 and I sti [...]

    23. Shelby Lee on said:

      Ugh.I m disappointed in myself I used to love this book I bought it back in middle school because I really liked wolves and I really liked fantasy and I really liked big books There is no better definition of a recipe for success.This review is kind of going to have two parts, because I am of two minds about this book For instance, when I was in middle school high schoolI freaking LOVED this book Why Because wolves.Wolves who were like little people and had little families and went on quests and [...]

    24. Emily on said:

      Probably my favorite book of all time No joke here, folks I understand that it was designed for younger readers, around the early teen areas, and I admit that is how old I was when I first read this book But, I have read it again and continue to love it just as deeply as I did as a junior high student The character development The setting The plot All stupendous I loved this book so much I made an attempt to make contact with David Clement Davies himself to ask him questions about the history in [...]

    25. Kaitlyn on said:

      The book Im reading is called The Sight By David Clement Davis.The story is about the wolves in Romania named Huttser,Palla,Larka,Kar, and Fell The main characters are Larka,Kar and Fell The main event is the fight between the great pack and Morgra The sight is the main thing in this story Its what the story shapes around The sight is a power that very few wolves know They get it by birth Say a wolf looks into the water and it has the sight It can see a vision of the future It can also look onto [...]

      The Sight by David Clement is about a Transylvanian wolf clan faced with the conflict brought by Morgra who is another wolf that in order to have power over all wolves needs to fulfill an ancient legend Young Larka who is a white wolf pup born with the Sight, embarks with her brother Fell and the rest of her family on an twist and turn quest for power as well Larka and Morgra are the only wolves that have the sight and Larka fears for her family because Morgra who has the sight is the only wolf [...]

    27. Jaime on said:

      I decided to read this book because I remembered reading Fire Bringer in about 7th or 8th grade and I really enjoyed the entire gist of the plot and the decent pacing of the novel As I read The Sight though, I felt it drag on and on I did not enjoy the characterization of the wolves themselves each wolf seemed flat as characters The abundance of heavy handed religion and pseudo spirituality really grated on my nerves as I read through the book as well Several parts of the wolf s culture seemed t [...]

    28. Holly on said:

      I can t honestly mark this as read , because I haven t finished it Rarely do I not finish a book, but in this case it just isn t holding my attention, and I find the story to be derivative and the writing to be relatively un engaging It seems as though the author has just transposed human characters into wolves, and it is actually distracting to me Why go with wolves Why not just write the story around human characters if you go to such lengths to mirror human characteristics into your animals O [...]

    29. Destiny on said:

      This book was not only inaccurate but very boring I feel like this book was written by a child, the plot was lacking and the story was unnecessarily dragged out This book was one of my book club books, when I first saw it I thought it was a pretty big and long book But when I started reading I realised that so much of this story could have been cut out and that the story really ended up going nowhere I had to finish this book, but I must say only 1 6 of the book is actually interesting This coul [...]

    30. Corbin Billington on said:

      Fantasy books are not the most ideal genre for me but I gave this book four stars A young boy who is very shy and very smart becomes acquaintances with a roaming wolf They do not get the chance to talk face to face, only short greetings This book reminds me of when I was young, spending time with my grandmother feeding the same doves every morning In this book s case, the human boy sees the same wolf repeatedly I would recommend this book to any fantasy lover over the age of fourteen As the book [...]
