Put down 'Harry Potter' and pick up 'Prydain'!

An assistant pig-keeper? Where is the adventure in that? This may be a question running through your head as you read the summary on the back of 'The Book of Three,' but you'd be surprised to learn that the assistant pig-keeper himself agrees with you and doesn't stay so for long. Taran, a truly unique youth, has the heart of 20 grown men and the height of half of one, but that matters little when this pig-keeper sets out on the adventure of a life time. Funny, heart warming, and original, this book would make ANY 'Harry Potter' fan put down 'Half-Blood Prince' and pick up 'The Chronicles of Prydain' series.

Is this a short story?

I find it hard to believe that this book is the great novel that everyone makes it out to be. I read it in one sitting, and could only think to myself when I was finished that a majority of this book was missing... There is almost little to no detail about anything, and if there is it seems totally irrelevant to the story. Lots of people compare this series of books to Narnia or LOTR, but I really can't see the connection. I guess I expected more from what most of the reviews out there said about this. Maybe if I read the other four books it will actually feel like a whole story?
