    Amazing

    This book is a great read. It is a great for anybody young or old and will never bore you. I never found myself bored or annoyed with the book, but instead, was enjoying myself immensly. The effort put into this book by Renault clearly shows and should be respected. If you enjoyed this book you will probably enjoy some of the other titles written by the author.

    A Waste For Young Readers

    If you are of a young age, this book will bore you to an early death. Theseus talks and talks and talks about everything going on, so you rarely get anywhere. Extracting some type of feeling from this book is difficult, but many older readers may enjoy it. I suggest that if you have read this book and didn't like it, go back to it later. If you are young, and haven't read it, don't read it just yet. It is not the reading level which may hold you back, it may be the wisdom and patience needed to read it. That could only come with time.
