    Beautifully Visual

    I think "The Amulet" is a wonderful debut fantasy from Alison Pensy. It is the kind of book I would have loved to be stranded home alone with on a rainy day when I was in middle school. Is it written on the same scale as Harry Potter or Percy Jakson? No. But I enjoyed it immensely and could not have given the book any less than 5 stars.
    The author's writing style is so beautifully visual, you feel enveloped in a book from the moment you start reading. All the right characters are easy to love and hate, plus it has a few surprises along the way, just when you think you are getting comfortable with a plot.
    If you buy this book for a girl age 10-14, who loves to read fantasy, she is guaranteed a good time.
    My favorite parts about the book: a touch of romance and great visual descriptions.

    Good Read

    This book was a very enjoyable journey into a magical world. It was lighthearted and fun. My only qualm was that the end seemed rather rushed and left a few questions unanswered.

    A nice book for a 10 yr old. Simplistic with no convoluted story line. Don't read it in bed...... you won't be able to stay awake.

    Needs editing

    Really good story but WAY too many punctuation and grammar errors that make it a bit hard to read. As long as you can read over errors this is a really awesome book!!!!!

    Awesome

    This was a pretty good book. I read it in one night. However, even at 400 some pages, the ending felt very rushed and the book's plot was pretty boring. But still a good book.
