Customer Reviews of Amulet, Book 1: The Stonekeeper

Kazu's best work yet

Kazu has done a bunch of things so far: Flight 1,2,3, and 4 and Daisy Kutter are what he is best know for. But this is his best work yet. The story is easy to follow and quick to read. The book has great visual style and feeling. I look forward to book 2.

A Boy New to Graphic Novels

My 9 year old had just read Diary of a Wimpy Kid which is a book printed like a diary with stick figure pictures. He loved it. So when I saw Amulet out at the library I encouraged him to get it. (He did not want to read it.)

He finished it in two days and wanted to go back for the next one. As it has been stated in other reviews the book sort of ends without a true resolution. **Spoiler Alert** They rescue their mother but she is at deaths door. Will she live or die? **end spoiler** The books story line is dark...dead father, mother missing and lost in the dark to boot but my son is fine with it. I don't see the cliff hanger ending as a negative it is just encouraging him to read the next one.

The pictures are not at all like any comic book I ever read. The cover is very much how the entire book looks. The Editorial Reviews Amazon has posted are good descriptions of this book. We will be waiting for the next book to be published!!!

One of the best books I ever read.....

It was a gift from my neighbors and I loved this book. It was about a brother and sister that were trying to save their mom with the help of mechanical robots and thingees. They overcome lots of monsters. That is why I liked the book.

Beautiful journey into another world

The imagination of the author is a powerful vehicle that will take you for a breathtaking flight you'll remember for years. I'd recommend the comic for all ex-children :) and all children 12 and up (8-11 if they are emotionally strong and supervised). But parents should read it first and accompany the younger children as some events shown in the comic raise very strong emotions.

Great book

My son, almost 8, read that book in 2 days and it's not usual for him. We can't wait for the next books. We'll look for more books from this author!
