Finally hunted this classic down,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Huntsman (Warriors of the Wasteland) (Paperback)
I remember this being read to me by my father as an 8 year old and how captivated and impressed I was by it then. So much so that 30 years later I wanted to find a copy to read to my 8 year old son.
It hasn't let us down. A child is going to be that much more taken with a story when the adult reading it to them is in to it. He always wants me to continue reading when I reach the end of a chapter and tell him that that's enough for the night.
The characters are believable and the concept of a future where we have gone back to living in tiny little villages in a primitive way doesn't seem too far fetched these days. Add into the mix a touch of the superhuman and aliens and you're on for a great sic-fi adventure which keeps you gripped to the end.
The quality of the writing is such that it reads like an adult novel but is easy enough for a child of 8 to understand.
