A nice portal into the fantasy world for kids
, 6 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Ranger's Apprentice 1: The Ruins of Gorlan (Paperback)
A quick and light read.
Being a bit quick ordering my last batch of books from amazon, I bought this solely on the positive review on this page, and was a bit shocked when I received it. It's an young adult book, meant for ages 10-15, which I don't think this page very clearly convey's.
Other than that, it's a well written book, not terribly original but with enough twist to make it exciting. Finished it in an afternoon while sunbathing, should be a quick an easy read for kids and first timers to fantasy. I would not compare this to Tolkien or Potter, it's more like Timothy Zahn's Dragonback adventures for young adults.
