Book Review: Brotherband 1 by John Flanagan - Reviewed by rachthevego (11 Mar 2012)
I was expecting a more exciting ride when I was told about this book but it seemed to be quite predictable, repetitive and poorly edited.
It's your Viking equivalent of Harry Potter and actually the story is quite charming. However there is way too much scene setting, too many repeated / running gags and too many obvious plot turns.
The last five chapters and the opening for another book are about where I finally got hooked so I will read the next in the series when I get to it....but sheesh, I hope it's a bit more fast moving and less repetitive (read less insulting to my intelligence) that this one or I may give up on it a lot sooner than this!
John Flanagan's bestselling Ranger s Apprentice adventure series originally comprised twenty short stories, which John wrote to encourage his twelve-year-old son, Michael, to enjoy reading. The series has come a long way since then. Now sold to more than twenty countries, the series regularly appears on the New York Times Bestseller list and has been shortlisted for children's book awards in Australia and overseas. John, a former television and advertising writer, lives with his wife, Leonie, in the Sydney beachside suburb of Manly. He is currently writing further titles in the Ranger s Apprentice series as well as the exciting new Brotherband series.
