Review for Gravity Falls: Dipper and Mabel and the Curse of the Time Pirates’ Treasure!: A “Select Your Own Choose-Venture!”

26200607This was just so much fun! Doing all the routes (3 main ones that split up in many little ones and then come back in the end). I think my favourite would be the Medieval one.

The last one in Gravity Falls books, though considering one ending, I am hoping that sequel will really come true and isn’t just a false message (I would be terribly sad if it was).

The book is all about finding the one time-key. The key to ultimate treasure. The key can be found in 3 places, so this book has 3 main routes, Medieval Times, Future, Wild West. Of course, you can also pick to stay at home, but then the story is just over. Each route eventually connects to the ending part. There are lots of endings to be found, good and bad ones, and it was so much fun to just find them all and see what happens in each one of them. Some are just death (it isn’t said as much, but you can guess that if you get engulfed in Dragon flames that one just doesn’t survive that), others are them getting stuck forever and ever, then there are ones in which they just give up, or stay at that time-part. And then there are more endings even beyond that. Believe me, you will never get bored with this one.

I loved the 3 routes, and I loved how each of them was a complete story. As I said at the beginning the Medieval one was definitely my favourite. Followed by Wild West, and then the Future. The best part of the Future was definitely the race.

There are also cameos from other characters, either because of Gravity Falls stuff happening, or because they have a counter-part in that era.

Mabel and Dipper, and of course Blendin are having the adventures of a life-time, and I just had a big laugh at all they found and all they encountered.

It was quite a journey to get through all the routes, luckily I had a chart ready, my boyfriend and I love making those for these kind of books. And this way I couldn’t get lost or lose my place in where in the book I was.

There is also art/illustrations. I loved those, they are the art also used in the tv-show.

This book was definitely awesome, I laughed, I cheered, I groaned (at puns), I choose my way through this adventure! Yay for Gravity Falls, yay for Mabel and Dipper.

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. Be sure to watch the show as well though, as there are some spoilers to the show, but also regarding the character Blendin.
