Personally I believe this book is perfect for anyone around the age of 12/13. There is a boyish feel to it at the beginning but as you get to the end it's more unisex. There is not as much gore as expected, which makes it suitable for younger children. It was a nice quick read and was interesting, wouldn't highly recommend it for anyone above age of 14 but would be a fantastic read for anyone below that age.
Almost didn't finish the book, but was just intrigued enough to persevere. Totally not worth it. Not even close to real premise, two-dimensional characters, unbelievable action and debilitating wounds shrugged off almost immediately.
