Need a little D&D fix but no one to play with? This book will help.
The best thing is it's small and easy to carry with no parts to lose. Bring it to Grandma's, or on that stupid camping trip.
You can use an already made character or make your own.
Battle monsters, figure out traps, and find the warlock's therasure.
Try it it's fun!

Women in my life complain "boys are hard to buy presents for" - well, here is an idea (and it is non-electronic).
This series is recommended for fans of Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld / Harry Porter/ Perry Jackson / Lord of the Rings / Diana Wynne Jones books, but particularly boys. Content is not too gory, but these are titled "fighting fantasy" books for a reason. Similarly, the reading age is probably 8+ years, but I am no expert.
The random element of encounters throughout the books is what stands out for me - "re-playability". You choose if the protagonist goes left or right, etc. However, even if you pick the same options twice, you probably will not get exactly the same result if you are unlucky.
I am tried of giving kids electronics and want them to learn that reading can be fun (yes - I am my becoming my grandparents), so I will be trying these books out on them - it worked for me.

NOTE FOR PUBLISHERS/DISTRIBUTORS: The new version of these books have a preview of the next book in the back. Why don't you make these half-dozen pages available in the Amazon "look inside" function for the matching book? That is clearly what they were written for.

Perfect for single player roll playing without dragging out a board. The price is excellent and very happy with the product.

All things considered, the idea of these types of play style "be your own hero" books is a good idea. But I'm not reviewing the idea of the book series, but rather this particular story. Frankly, this story is lacking a LOT. It is very linear and doesn't give you many options to explore and get lost... it often just says "Here's a room with XXX inside, interact with XXX or leave." Never really any indepth adventure. Seems this was written in haste and many details were overlooked and not well thought out. Other books of this series are much better.
