Book Review #127 - Have Book, Will Travel by Kfir and Yonatan Luzzatto

Have Book, Will Travel

Max fears that his family will disapprove of his friendship with Darla, a common girl from the village outside his uncle’s fortress walls. That's why they meet secretly to read together from an old book, which she has found in a dusty room near the fortress laundry where she works.

They read about a lost lake and feel adventurous when they slip out of the fortress to go swimming there; but the trouble begins when they find that, in the meantime, the fortress has been sealed and they can’t get back in. It’s lucky that they have the book with them, to guide them through the many dangers that await them on their way back home…or perhaps it is the book that is the source of their troubles.

In the end, it is the power of the friendship that Darla and Max have forged, and their courage, that see them through a series of breathtaking adventures.

My Rating: 3.5/5

I was given this book for review from the author. The author's goodreads page is here.

This book grabs you on the very first page and doesn't let you go until the very end. It is jam packed with adventure.

I really liked Max and Darla, they were great protagonists. They are really what is special about this book.

Parts of this book reminded me of The Emerald Atlas but I feel Have Book, Will Travel wrote those aspects better.

This was a really enjoyable read with fantastic settings and characters. I would recommend this book to anyone.
