Great adventure read!

I loved it as a kid, and I love as a parent. Has a lot of the simplistic feeling as 'The Giver', but without all the weighty moralizing. Straightforward plot, with clear progression toward a goal make this an easy read. The book is some forty years old, so the prose is clean, focusing on the story rather than trying to be 'edgy' or 'gritty' like so much more recent books.

Really bad writing technique

Although the story line is fair, the writing style is sub par. In reading this book with my son for school, I don't even understand many of the sentences. The writing is very poor, as I read with my son, I need to change the words to have the book make sense. And then need to explain each paragraph as it is not understandable.
