    Funny, Action-Packed, and Unforgettable!

    "A Door in the Woods," by James Dashner, acclaimed author of the "13th Reality" series and "The Maze Runner," is the first adventure in the fast-moving "Jimmy Fincher" saga. An exciting roller-coaster ride of a story, this book contains not one dull moment and constantly keeps the reader enthralled and excited to read more! Being the first book Dashner has ever written, this novel is set in first-person as a fourteen-year-old boy named Jimmy Fincher and is something unique and one-of-a-kind, which all readers will find funny, action-packed, and unforgettable!

    A great young tale to start.

    This was a really quick and easy read for me. I enjoyed following the beginning to Jimmy Fincher's tale. The author caught my attention in the first paragraph when Jimmy mentions he cannot be destroyed. I was curious to see how this all would play out. It was a nice adventure to get to the end of this book.

    Jimmy was a normal 14 year old by with a Mom, Dad, and an older brother living in a town called Duluth, Georgia. Until the day he was climbing a tree and saw a man dragging a woman fighting into the woods, then she just vanishes. Where did she go? And why is this man... Oh, Jimmy nows this man... The whole story just takes off from here.

    Jimmy is sent by his dad to find an old friend, not knowing exactly where this friend lives or what he looks like, whos name is Joseph. Then he is told by his dad to be scared, that being scared will keep him alive.

    On page 3 of the book there was one paragraph I just loved and really made me look forward to the fun tale that was going to be told with a childs view and discription on things, which does make it easy to see knowing what a kid sees.
    "Before I begin, there are things to say. You must prepare yourself. The world is not what you think it is, and the nightmares that sometimes wake you in the middle of a storm may be truer than you think. Every novel you've ever read may not be as fictional as you thought. If I have learned anything, it is that nothing is beyond possible or belief. The world as I once knew it has turned upside down, and I've finally realized that the phrase "truth is stranger than fiction" is not just a stupid cliche.""

    A Great Adventure!

    "A Door in the Woods" was the first book written be James Dashner and was also the first installment in the "Jimmy Fincher" Saga. Packed with excitement from the first page to the last, this book will pull you in and have you wondering many things until the end and then some. This novel has a unique storyline and Jimmy Fincher---the hero in the story---will have you captivated by his simple humor and lightheartedness. "A Door in the Woods" was a stepping stone, a jumping-off-from point that introduced James Dashner to the world of an author. It also introduced the world of readers to a wonderful author, James Dashner, who has continued to bring great works of literature to the world of books! All in all, this was a great adventure that will leave you with a smile on your face!

    Better Than Harry Potter!

    Jimmy Fincher, the schoolboy from Georgia who can't be destroyed, in 'A Door in the Woods', rocks the imagination in ordeal after scary ordeal. Young readers will be held captive until the last inky sentence falls into place. This is a novel that twists and turns until you wonder how things can possibly get any worse. Jimmy beats evil in dynamic Harry Potter style-without the witchcraft!

    Page turner

    I enjoy how Dashner's characters express feelings and thoughts that most people in their situations would- fear, anxiety, joy, confusion, anger, etc. It makes the characters more relatable and Jimmy Fincher is good example of a hero we want to root for. The Door in the Woods is packed with adventure and action, and I can't wait to read the rest in the series.

    Great pre-teen's book

    It is a great book for kids under 14. They will identified with the character in the book. A very nice story with some really refreshing magic and plot. No, it is not a Harry Potter book so don't compared it to it. Just read it and enjoy it... you will be glad you did.

    Best Author/Book I have read in a long time.

    My fourth grade teacher read the first book 'A Door In The Woods' to us, and I went to the library and got hooked on this author and book. I recommend this book to people almost twice a week. I loved it. It shows how authors can come from places other than England.

    Not just for kids!

    A Door in the Woods is a delighful, exciting, and unique story about Jimmy Fincher, a young unlikely hero who gets dragged into a world that is beyond belief as he is given the assignment to save the world from the Stompers. James Dashner has a distinctive voice and uses clever phrases to tell the story. It's a fun read and I laughed out loud several times.
