The world building was nicely done. This is based in the jungle, and while there's some things that don't quite "feel" spot on, it is perfectly believable if you take it in the context that many people have traveled the route before.
The character development is a bit shaky, but I think that is because choose your own adventures relies heavily on what choices the reader makes, rather than on how the characters actually develop.
The pacing in this one is steady, not too fast, not too slow. It's kind of hard to judge because if you make an incorrect choice, you do get sent to a previous point in the story and have to work your way forward again. I don't remember any places that felt rushed or lagging, though I do remember a couple of points where it felt like things were slightly disjointed. That may be because I was rushing back through a section I'd just finished (and chose the wrong answer along the way) or because there is a time lapse that isn't properly bridged. Not quite sure.
All in all, this is a good three and a half out of five as a READING book, and a five out of five as an EDUCATIONAL reading book. I think the younger readers who are just starting to read chapter books will enjoy this one, though readers with a little more mature reading skill may find the book a touch on the simplistic side. However, I do think the slightly older readers will find the book enjoyable for the educational content as well.
It's an interactive adventure book with YOU as the main character. You must answer questions, make choices and solve riddles to find your way out of the maze and escape danger.
As a digital illustrator, I sit at a laptop most of the day and badly need to exercise. After downloading this book I took my Android tablet to the treadmill and started walking and reading. The book was perfect. It touched all the senses with smells of food, sewers, sounds of wild animals, feeling slimy walls and much more. I loved being part of the story and forgot about the treadmill until I dizzily staggered off. I read the whole book in two exercise sessions and now want another one just like it.
Great as a way for kids to learn new facts, but also a great way to test your memory on these facts and riddle answers as you go, as each wrong answer will see you transported backwards in the maze, needing all those correct answers to make forwards progress again.
As with the first book in this series, I was feeling pleased with myself and making good forward progress, then the sorcerer tripped me up, leaving me in what felt like an endless loop! Just watch out for those clock face jungle paths, or you too may end up walking round in circles!
Fun, interesting and educational! See if you can complete the maze too, then get in your application to be a sorcerer's apprentice!
