I love the fairy tale/fantasy genre. Most of the novels today offer us a teenage hero/heroin. As with teenagers, they are often confused, hormonal and unclear about whom they are. This is usually as much of the storyline as the fairy tale part. It was very refreshing in Magic Kingdom for Sale to find an adult main character who knows who he is and accepts his flaws. I loved the premise of this book. It read easily and flowed well. I did wish there was a bit more emotion displayed by the characters. I wanted that attachment where I actually felt what they said that they were feeling. It was more of an action story than an emotional one and I felt it could have been both. Because the action was so well executed and the imagery so vivid, I still enjoyed the book immensely even without the additional emotional connection that I would have liked. The entire time I read Magic Kingdom, I felt as though I was watching a mini movie in my head. The characters and scenery were well depicted and easily visualized. I would love to see it shown love and brought to life on the big screen by a talented director. The movie that played in my head as I read the book was a hybrid mix of Lord of the Rings and The NeverEnding Story with a sprinkle of Harry Potter thrown in. Properly executed I think it could be a classic film. Bottom line, I found this to be a fun, modern fairy tale without the typical teenage angst and well worth the time to read. I am looking forward to the second book in the series.

At times the solutions to problems call for some suspension of belief of what a normal adult would do, but fanntasy calls for a willing suspension og disbelief,

This is an unbelievably unforgettable premise.  I mean, could you just imagine?  If you could buy the things dreams are made of…  Combine this with a solid storyline with lots of plot twists to keep you on your toes and you have a winner.    Brooks has created a magical land full of mythical being and dangers and rewards beyond your wildest imaginings.  He brings the entire world to life, allowing you to do more than simply walk through it, you experience it. The characters definitely made this story.  They were as magical as the land they lived in.  Not only are there a myriad of humans, fairy creatures, and other being to get to know, but there were a number of personalities to fall in love with.  There were certain characters who made me laugh every time they appeared, others who made me cringe.  Above all, however, their plights all tugged at my heart.  The main character took the cake.  He was fantastic.  He is one of those rare individuals who capture your heart, embodying everything that you want to be and all the weaknesses you see in yourself. This was a magical, enjoyable novel that brings Brooks’ world to life in a big way.  I can’t wait to see what happens in Landover next!

Fantastic, original story. This book is begging to be made into a movie. Only problem I had was all of the typos in the nook book version.

I read this book years ago but I find myself thinking back on it a lot. I got it as a hand-me down book, but it is a good book. I have read some of the sequeals that I could find and, while they are good extentions of the story, there is something missing in them that was in this book. The one thing this book has, as all fantasies should, a great escape from our world through our imagination.

Great story.  Read this on years ago and I still recommend it.  Still waiting for more books in the Landover series.  For anyone who enjoys a fantasy book with a light touch.
