The Chronicles of Prydain - Book 1

The Book of Three (The Chronicles of Prydain) The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
I did enjoy this book. My enjoyment, however, did not extend to "love." There are some intriguing characters (a big thing for me) and I plan to continue with the series. I think that my main problem is that I found myself comparing it to the very compelling Belgariad series by David Eddings. I wanted it to achieve those same heights and was disappointed about that. Taran and especially Eilonwy are promising characters with a lot of room for growth and acts of heroism. Hopefully my opinion will improve as I continue on.
