Selected this book based on the trailers of the up and coming movie. I was not disappointed. the book is fast paced adventure that does not bore you. It is filled with light-hearted humor. And the characters are likable and easy to relate to. Percy is a down-to- Earth typical teenager with the kinds of problems that most of us can understand, and then a few more. Loved the book so much i have moved into the rest of the series with wild abandon. The best so far since Harry Potter or Artemis Fowl
If Audio Books were Quality Street Chocolates then this would be my favorite favorite. A book originally given to me a gift. I did not read it for several years because of the prologue. When I did give it a chance finally, could not put it down. When through the rest of the 10 books faster than I have read anything other than Lord of the rings.
Garion. every time he thinks " Why me?" I think been there, done that!. A character you can relate to, not only as a person, but in terms of the kind of experiences he goes through.
I have to pick one? Not possible there are so many. Garion in trouble, the homeliness of Aunt Pols Kitchen. The agony of leaving his childhood home. There are just so many I enjoyed.
Not merely a legend, a Myth in the making.
Hands down recommend the book and the series to any fantasy fan. Dont ask for a comparison, there is nothing quite like it out there. This ones unique!
