Format: Paperback
This series is recommended for fans of Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld / Harry Porter/ Perry Jackson / Lord of the Rings / Diana Wynne Jones books, but particularly boys. Content is not too gory, but these are titled "fighting fantasy" books for a reason. Similarly, the reading age is probably 8+ years, but I am no expert.
The random element of encounters throughout the books is what stands out for me - "re-playability". You choose if the protagonist goes left or right, etc. However, even if you pick the same options twice, you probably will not get exactly the same result if you are unlucky.
I am tried of giving kids electronics and want them to learn that reading can be fun (yes - I am my becoming my grandparents), so I will be trying these books out on them - it worked for me.
NOTE FOR PUBLISHERS/DISTRIBUTORS: The new version of these books have a preview of the next book in the back. Why don't you make these half-dozen pages available in the Amazon "look inside" function? That is clearly what they were written for.

My kids loved these books, and so did I, when they were first published. They were the literary equivalent of the fantasy games that followed on computers. I have just tried them out with a group of reluctant readers at school and they were a success with many of them . The dice throwing makes it feel like a game , but they have to read to progress and mental maths is thrown in as a bonus. Definitely worth trying.

25 years have passed since I last read one if these books until I came across "midnight rogue" whilst having a clear out .
I read it and fell back in love with fighting fantasy .

A great way to encourage children to read books in an age of Xbox and iPhone . The decisions and choices you make determine your fate , with monsters , magic and mayhem never far away .

Really good fun and quick delivery to boot .

Just as good as you remember them being, only let down was they didn't come with some kind of collection box or sleve to keep them all together. but thats a minor gripe.
