    Good Read

    I enjoyed this book. It was fun, well paced, and I'd recommend it to friends. The formatting made it difficult to read at times, because the narrator would change without any break in the text. Also, it seemed to end a bit abruptly. Maybe another story is coming out later? It just didn't feel finished.

    Good, keeps you intrested, but no page turner

    I liked this book and think it is worth getting. Grizelda is appropriate for all ages (for the parents out there, while it is appropriate for all ages I would not reccomend this book for children under 10 as it can be a bit hard to follow. This book has lots of detail and keeps you interested, but is by no means a page turner. It can get confusing at points because it so abruptly chages scenes. One paragraph its at one spot, with one set of charachters, and the next its at a completely different setting with a completely different set of characters. Grizelda has a compelling storyline and despite the fact that it is hard to follow (which, for the record, can be overcome with little effort) is a good read.

    Enjoyable Story

    Though it did end rather abruptly, Grizelda is an enjoyable, imaginative tale. It's quite nice to read a story in which the female protagonist finds her own courage and empowerment simply because she's maturing and learning, not because she's drooling over some handsome, brooding forbidden fruit. I consider this book appropriate for most children over 8 or so.

    Good family story

    I really enjoyed this book, but it ended unfinished. It is a nice story for all ages and would make a cute movie.

    Highly recommended!!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It took me places I could never have imagined! "Ratriders, goblins" and Grizelda all combined to want the book to not end. I hope the author will write more adventures of Grizelda and her new friends!

    Okay

    It's good and bad. When I say that I mean when I started I liked it enough to keep reading and some parts of the book I just didn't like. Over all I loved the book and I read a lot of books. I read over 50 books in school last school year and more at home. I'm nine almost ten years old.

    Meh

    I mean to be honest. I read this book and honestly, I'm not that all satisfied. It's not bad or even ok for that matter. It's a little in between if you subtract the curse words. I am so totally being absolutely honest with you.

    Can't understand how someone can say they don't like books about

    Can't understand how someone can say they don't like books about witchcraft and wizards, and then post a review saying so and giving one star. Did they read the book and found that out? It's in the description that she was accused of witchcraft. If you don't like those kinds of books, don't read them, and don't give a one star review, which only hurts the author. There are those of us who like these kinds of books. Since it ended abruptly, maybe the author will write another one if she gets positive reviews (or maybe she already is).
