I really, really wanted to love this. I love the film adaptation, with the lovely Paul Bettany and Brendon Fraser, so wanted this book to be as goof. But sadly, I never quite fell in love with it.

That said, it is still a fantastic read. As an avid reader, you can't help but wonder what would happen if you could read characters and things out of books - although as I read a lot of horror and sci-fi, maybe that wouldn't be such a great thing to happen! And if you had to sacrifice something from this world? Maybe, if you got to choose who you sent where!

But this is a good story, full of flawed heroes and nastier-than-nasty villains. Capricorn is a wonderful character - there's no real reason for his nasty - he's just evil. I kind of like that. But the other characters felt a little flat to me, maybe just because I loved them all so much in the film that they didn't quite live up to them same.

That said, I will definitely be tracking down the sequels, as I'd love to see where the story goes from here.
