Seriously? Anyway, this book does provide a slightly humorous read, but is it worth spending an hour or two of your life? I think that The Dragonslayer’s Apprentice by David Calder is an exciting book. The main character, Jackie, is a 15year old girl who loves action. She is not afraid of any creature, witch, or other danger that she may meet on her adventures. I thought that reading this book was exciting and I would definitely recommend it to people who like action and adventure. Besides being an exciting read I also thought the book was very easy to read, I read it over a couple of weeks but I actually think that you could easily read it in a few days if you read it a lot. The best thing about The Dragonslayer’s Apprentice was that it was really funny, this book really made me laugh. However, it was a bit predictable; the dragonslayer slays the dragon etc. No big surprises, therefor it wasn't that exciting.
A fun little book that I pick up and read for a pick me up. This book is more about the dragon slayer, as it is his perspective but the way it's told is fun with a dash of snark. The dragon slayer has an assistant, who barely says two words, and an apprentice who is a 16 year old girl/run away princess. She has a witty way about her, and if you are looking for a bathtub book or something light to read this is a fun little book to have.
Personal side note, this book is responsible for my inability to spell words like realize and color without trying to add the UK affect. Colour and realise. Not a fast paced exciting read but enjoyable. Some parts seemed to drag but it kept my interest. I was not surprised by the ending as the author gives many hints leading up to it. It had plenty of humor. I recommend to someone who enjoys fantasy that is looking for a quick light read. I read this when I was pretty young, and it sparked something in my brain. Girl could be heroes! Girls could slay dragons! It's a pretty lucid story, written in a tongueincheek manner. Good for a young audience, but someone older might find it lacking. It was quite funny! It was a very simple book, plotwise, as it didn't include tons of sensory details to make the book extremely exciting, but I laughed out loud at some points and enjoyed the story overall. The characters were diverse, and ideas were interesting, making for a decent book. I would consider this a children's fantasy book. Not a lot of plot, but still enjoyable, in a childtype way. Could be rewritten to be much more exicitng, but less okay for children. What an odd little book. Something of a leadership/management guide disguised as a middlegrade fantasy. I think I liked it, but the ending is flat. Good
