Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 21 February 2004
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. As a few have already mentioned, King wrote this for his children. Therefore it isn't as gruesome as his other works, but having said that, it is still a fantastic read. There are still characters you really care about and there are baddies you love to hate!
It's similarities to the Tower series made this all the more enjoyable for me. No-one can write like King in my opinion and that's great. He has been compared with authors like Dean Koontz but I feel they are completely different.
This is a story that I would gladly give to my teenage daughter to read were she able to tear herself away from watching t.v. for long enough!!! Many people have said that they can't imagine many kids today enjoying this book as it's a bit too wordy and long, but I have three children aged between 10 and 14 and they have all read the Harry Potter books and been enthralled. Those books aren't much different to this one in the way they are wordy and long.
This is a wonderful tale of good vs evil that needs to be read more than once. Try it yourself and sit back and enjoy.
