What is this a children's book?,
This review is from: City of Ravens (Forgotten Realms: The Cities) (Mass Market Paperback)
Now, I dont know if the rest of the reviewers were reading the same book to be honest!
Half way through at the moment, and honestly I think its written for 10 year olds! The characters are almost comical in their chliche mannerisms and plots, the 'game' in the book is childish and I feel a warrant for the author to play around a bit - did I mention the characters? Seriously - a rogueish thief with a barbarian companion, a Red Wizard called Zandria? Please! Half way through the book and no-one has even been killed yet!
I'm pretty sure I have read other works by this author and they must have been passable (if not memorable) but I feel I had to warn people about this one.
A the phrase 'page turner' was coined by a few other reviewers and I agree - but only to the point that im skimming over many sections as im just too stubborn to put the book down without finishing it.
