Best Book Ever!

Best book I’ve ever read next to Harry Potter! The characters really come to life. I was completely engaged in the story. Although there are battles and torture, it’s not too violent. I loved it!!! Thank you Lloyd Alexander.

One of my favorites!

This used to be my favorite book! Every time we had to write a book report in school I would choose to read this, even though I've read it a million times. There is a disney movie called the Black Caulron "based" on the books. It ruined the Lotr-style fantasy and turned it into a little-kiddish fairy tale. This book was so cool, but a little violent. I found the main character whiney, but he became more mature in the other books. I love Princess Eilownwy's metaphors and bossy tone, and Gurgi is timeless. Great book! It's one of the few novels that I can escape into. Well, what are you waiting for? Go read it!!!!

great characters- just not the main one...

i think that perhaps the oddest thing about this book is that while there are a bunch of great characters in it, the main character makes you want to fall asleep! welsh names make it a little hard to read, but the story's okay.
