Told from the point of view of the main character, his voice has a wonderful reality albeit in a fantasy setting. He has a great sense of humour and a gift for words that saved his life on several occasions. I was reminded of "I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him' a couple of times. Very cleverly written and a joy to read.
Trust me, this book is at least as good, if not better, then most of those successful titles. It is funny, captivating, imaginative, and fun to read. I enjoyed every moment of Will's adventures.
I highly recommend this book - read it, you would love it.
I found myself fully engaged in the goings-on from the very first page and devoured every page after that. It is a refreshing treatment of the fantasy genre and I believe that there is something here for every one whether you are a fan of fantasy fiction or not.
One of the most enticing things about the story was the real growth you saw in the main character--the hilarious--Will Hawthorne, a man we can all identify with on some level. It's like a story of noble heroes being told from the point of view of someone just like you and me bringing an insight into the events that make it easier to engage and delight in the story.
I highly recommend this book.
