    MAGNIFIQUE!

    This book is a splendid combination of Robin Hood, Lord of the Rings, The Hatfields and McCoys and a touch of King Arthur. Yet it's different since the hero is a heroine. Therefor, Ronia is also like Joan of Arc, Catwoman and a character from Dungeons and Dragons. She's the kind of character girls wish to be and boys wish to be with.

    my most favorite book

    I don't recall how old I was when I first read this book, but it became my favorite, and still is. I saw a lot of myself in Ronia, and I still do. I recomend it to all girls, young and old. It is a great adventure.

    my favorite book

    Ronia has stayed with me throughout my childhood and adolescence, and even now inspires me everytime I read it. She is an ideal and likable role model, her life is blissfully idyllic and everything in the book breathes of magic. i would recommend it to anyone who wants to travel into another world for an hour or so.

    Best book I've ever read

    I think that this book should get 10 stars. Not only was this an excellent book, but it taught me to be more independent. Rhonia is a true heroine. Not only is this a fantasy type book, but it is also a bit romantic. If you like any good book then this is the book for you. After reading this book I feel as if my life has changed for the better. Before reading this book I hated reading. When I bought it at a book store though some how I knew that this was the book for me. After reading it I have become an avid reader. So to all those people out there who don't like to read, give this book a chance. I love this book
