My son does not like to read...
Reviewed in the United States on January 5, 2019
I was discouraged when I received the book. I was aware that it was 1-3 books, but I didn't expect them all to be in one book. "Great. He (my 9 y.o.) is never going to read it.", I thought.
My 9 y.o. son does not like to read. He does not have the attention span for sitting around and read a book. The only time he would read is if the book has pictures (it doesn't have to be a graphic novel, but some sort of pictures to go with the story). So, when I received the Epic Zero 1-3 book, I was discouraged.
However, I sat down and read the first chapter with him before bedtime to get a feel of the book and to see his reaction. To my surprise, he ENJOYED IT VERY VERY VERY MUCH. He went on and finished the book within 3 days and asked for volume 4 after that! I have since purchased the 4th book as well as downloaded the "extra" in PDF format and my son, of course, has read all of them.
Epic Zero was his first book without any illustration. Thank you, R.L. Ullman for writing the whole series! You showed my son that it was possible to fall in love with a book without pictures. Please continue writing the series!!
