Read full description of the books:
Having looked through the reviews, all 18 pages of them, I've found only 6 reviewers that rate this book below 3. I was kind of disappointed that there weren't more. So let me just make it clear that this is a terrible book.
Heimerdinger split up the action in these books which required the use of two narrators. But he doesn't do a very good job of giving the narrators different voices. The problem is so bad that he has to use different type sets to distinguish between narrators and I still had a hard time telling them apart. What makes it worse is that Heimerdinger appears to have one writing style, and that is first person omniscient. So you get the story from the perspective of one person, but that one person knows all the details and thoughts of every person around him or her. It really isn't a very impressive writing style.
Another problem with this book is that is has the exact same plot progression as the books preceding it. It was so sadly predictable that you could guess what was going to happen 30 pages ahead of yourself.
I also had a hard time deciding if Heimerdinger was trying to write a novel, a memoir, or a sermon. And his commentary on religious topics is some of the worst I've read. It's endless babble and cliche and pure drudgery to read.
To sum up, this book is a half-decent story line wrapped up in a bunch of reference to scripture, a little creative license, and mounds of religious cliche with very little substance. Having said that, I doubt your typical 10-12 year old cares much about any of that, and it's probably a good book for kids that age to be reading. But by the time you're 16, it's probably not worth the time.
