Abby ~Sign Please~ IT WAS AHHHHMMMMAAAAZZZIIIINNNGGG! Words cannot describe how outstanding this series is! It's kind of Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings meets Percy Jackson meets Land of Stories type of book.
Sydney This book was mindlessly entertaining. The plot was simple and unoriginal, but the characters were fairly likable. I'm 14 and I finished the series in a week, as it was WAY below my reading level. I've been reading Shakespeare for 4 years and Austen & Dumas since age 12. If you are short on money and looking for a thoughtful, perception-shifting book, The Giver, The Count of Monte Cristo, and anything by Jane Austen would be wonderful options. If a fast, cute story is what you're looking for, this book is one of the better options.
