After spending so much time with "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters" (which I loved by the way), and other books that are kind of just entertainment with no real meaning besides "LET'S HAVE FUN!" behind it, it was almost refreshing to read something like "Last Dragon."
Unlike most of the other books I have read in the recent past (just finishing the second book in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (another great book)), there is nothing funny about "Last Dragon." While it is entertainment, as all books should be, "Last Dragon" makes you really think. It took me a little over a week because I had to stop frequently and just think about what occurred.
There are no accidental words in this book. Every word is put there for a reason. If you skip a line you miss an entire event and it totally throws you off, and that's kind of why I love this book so much.
