This book is absolutely brilliant! I could not put it down once I started it! I fell in love with the characters, both the human characters and the Sramana characters. I would love to see a sequel set many years in the future to see how Danny's journey ends.
The plot line moved at a pace that was just right - not too fast or too slow. The characters were well-rounded and realistic. The description of the settings were just right, not too wordy but they gave me enough information about the setting that I could imagine it. Yes, some of the wording isn't really 1922 language, but I think most children won't even notice that.
I would highly recommend this book to any reader looking for a great adventure story, not just children and teens. I sent an e-mail to our children's material selector and highly recommended that we purchase the book for our collection. In fact, I even purchased a copy of the book on Amazon even though I got an e-book here for free. That's how much I enjoyed it!
