5.0 out of 5 stars
Superb ideas, Superb worldbuilding, Superb writing., May 28 2001
As others, I was aquainted with this book through playing the computer game as a child. Only at the age of 25 did I actually read the book. I was prepared for a letdown as I understood this to be a children's book. Boy was I wrong! the quality of writing is superb, the sheer amount of imagination that has gone into creating this magical, but also highly realized, world, is astounding. THis trilogy deals with the idea of pacifism in a way I have never seen before. This should be a must read for any child, teenager, or adult.
