An amazing end to the series! I just wish it hadn't ended...
Now I'm going to have to read some of Chris Colfer's other books! Keep it up, Chris!

Good series and a great ending! (Or should I say beginning! giggle giggle)! But I have two comments! 1. How could you do that to Amy, Chris!? 2. How could you do that to Rook Robins!?

I liked the book a lot. My favourite character was Alex. It was really suspenseful in the part when they found the entrance to central park. I liked how at the end it became a bit of a loop back to the first story.

very moving teaches you that no matter how alone you feel you are not

I agree with you, readingfairy.
I began the series 'The Land of Stories' when was ten years old. I found it very entertaining and quickly sped through the first and second books. I was very happy with the suspenseful and well-written storyline. But then the third and the fourth came out and I choked. THIS was what Chris Colfer, best-selling author, had to offer me? A painfully weak plot with even worse characters? The series pretty much flopped in my eyes. The fifth was okay, but not all that great. I felt as though Alex was really polite, brave, and smart and Conner was really lazy and stupid in the first one. Then it switched on the second book, and Alex had no self-control, was worrisome, and sentimental while Conner was kind, funny, and helpful.
Now, after reading 'Worlds Collide', I think that Colfer is lamer than ever. This book was LAME. Trust me. Rushed, silly, and unrealistic. And one more thing…
HOW DARE COLFER MAKE CONNER'S SON GAY?! I am so angry. What a stupid reference. I am probably never reading this series again…

I am actually quite disappointed in this book: first of all, it felt rushed, and a bunch of epic battles and things happening confusedly all around. Second, how can such an awesome series end like this?? (Spoiler) That the twins went to the president and agreed to erase the world's memory of the battles that happened just annoyed me. And then Connor's son was gay? Ugh. It's just sad that TLOS ended like this. EVERY SINGLE OTHER book in the series (and for me especially 1, 3, and 5) was SO AMAZING and AWESOME!!! Why Chris Colfer??? I think you should rewrite book 6. I am so sad about this!
But also, it wasn't all bad, and at least it brought a conclusion to everything, which I was sometimes worried about if it would do. So I have very mixed feelings about Worlds Collide, and after everything else I still had to give it 4 stars (a very hard-pressed 4 stars, but the Land of Stories series over all is still amazing!)

This book, especially, touches peoples heart, including mine, this is a well-written series with unseen twists and turns, it has warm heartfelt meaning to it that is hard to describe. Chris Colfer's 6th book Worlds Collide is by far my favourite though. This book has an astoundingly powerful grasp on reality and fantasy. It really made me feel as if I were there, fighting alongside Alex and Conner and their many friends. It truly helped me relate to my sibling fights and battles. I believe that the conflicts written in the book is much like all the conflicts people go through in real life, it gives us hope when we don't have a solution in reality, it tells us to make a solution when we don't have one. I guess in a way all people go through the same conflicts as Alex and Conner do except on a much more minor scale. This book is telling us no matter who, where or when, all people go through struggles, so we all have to help each other pull through, no matter physical battles or inner wars.

Sexual Content: If anyone cares about this, there is a guy (Connor's son) who is gay in this book. Not a lot is said, but he's married to another guy and it's there.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: It may have parts that younger children would maybe want to skip, such as head chopping, melting of people or chopping of hands or electrified monkeys.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Alex gets turned evil by witches' potion, witches are super sick, and Morina—she's just a MONSTER (I can't describe it in words; you have to read the book)

basically what happens is everybody escapes the fairytale world and there is a bunch of different little mini-wars and both of the literary armies are fighting and it is just a lot of drama and awesome chaos!!

"Sweetheart, 'happily ever after' DOES exist, it's just not what you think. 'Happily ever after' isn't a solution to life's problems or a guarantee that life will be easy it's a PROMISE we make ourselves to always live our best lives, despite whatever circumstances comes our way. When we focus on joy in times of heartbreak, when we choose to laugh on the days it's hard to smile, and when we count our blessings over our losses—THAT'S what a true 'happily ever after' is all about. You don't get there by being perfect; on the contrary, it's our humanity that guides us. And that's what fairytales have been trying to teach us all along." - John Bailey
