This is a great enjoyable book. Personally I think this book is full of adventure! I read the book at school when I was 11 and didn't finish It until I was 12 due to homework and sports clubs, although I read this at quite a young age it was and still is a bit complicated and/or hard to understand in places, this book is reasonably priced and great for ages 13+ (personally!!!!!!!!!!!!)
If you do purchase this book i hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did!
Thanks for reading my review!
