Ya...pretty much. These kind of books were revolutionary...because who ever heard of a story book, of any kind, with multiple endings based on choices you made during your reading.
I loaned this book for the first time from the school library when i was in elementary school. It was a hard back version, and i remember i never wanted to give it back....but i did.
It was amazing. I felt like i was so involved while reading this. It really does a lot for your imagination, especially at a time when the idea of being a ninja or a samurai was so exciting. Apart from reading actual books on the topic, a book like this was an escape like no other when it came to reading haha.
This was like my favorite book ever. I remember i found out about it because my older brother read it and had got it from our school library, so i couldnt wait to get my hands on it and turns out that it didnt disappoint. Sure, you can play a video game with a ninja or samurai character, or even watch a film, cuz theres lots. But theres something unique and special about a book on the topic.
I havent read it in forever, and until now, i didnt know there were copies of the book for sale on Amazon, so im really excited. I cant wait to save a couple dollars to buy this gem.
The book has some illustrations in it too, every now and then, not too many though. And i must say, the cover art is sweet. Just look at it. I always loved the cover art. But anyways...this is my favorite book, when it comes to fiction, and i hardly read fiction, cuz its hard to stay focused on a story i guess that never took place haha, but this topic always kept my interest, even today.
Maybe when i read this one again perhaps ill finally be able to conjure up enough attentiveness to take on my copy of James Clavell's epic novel...."SHOGUN"!!! lol
A MUST BUY. AND I HOPE THEY REISSUE THIS!!!!! I WANT THE HARDBACK VERSION!
