While I found the beginning to have a bit of a slow clunky start, it quickly builds momentum. Once I was engaged, it became a fabulous world full of vivid and interesting characters. A well-rounded environment and good read for a variety of audiences. Rating - Idea premise: A-, Content: B+, and Overall: B++.

Once I downloaded this book I was like its ok but as I got into the chapeters and the lives of perry and the old man it was like I was there with them in the other world. The writer did an excellent job in describing the other world. This book is a keeper I think that I will read it again. A+++

Very good read, but it was probably not proofread. Very many punctuation errors which messed up the flow of the story, but I loved it anyway.
