Read full description of the books:
This is a very easy, quick read. It essentially tells of a mute young boy who is sold to a fake dragon hunter. The dragon hunter isn't a real one because everyone knows that there is "no such thing as dragons".
As the story goes on people really see that maybe there are dragons. And... that's pretty much the story in a nutshell.
I think for a basic reader this would be a good book. I'm talking a very easy read. Anything over the 12-13 level might be a little too old for this book.
That said there were a few things that were a draw back from this book.
There is a lot of emphasis on religion, Christian religion in the book. While it didn't offend me it could easily be offensive to a parent, especially the young age that the writing is meant for.
There are several parts of this book that have major jumping around. In three pages we jumped from the mute boy, to the dragon hunter to the little girl. It was hard to tell who the main character was.
The last "Drawback" of the book was that some of the parts just weren't interesting. The whole book is basically told to you, there is nothing that happens. In that there is very little dialogue or events that happen in real time. I felt as if the story was told to me rather then me experiencing it with the characters.
A good book for an easy reader or a quick book for dragon lovers but nothing really special about it.
