Being an avid reader, I have read many adventure books in my life. Nothing has come close to capturing my attention like Anabar's Run. If you thought Harry Potter was good, just wait for this captivating story about Anabar's journey to defeat evil. The details are extremely vivid; I definitely felt like I was there with Anabar. This is not a book that takes a while to get going. Will Granger jumps right into the plot and captures you from the beginning. I couldn't put this book down; I came to fall in love with the diverse characters. You should not think twice about reading this book. It is fast-paced and exciting. Put it at the top of your book list!

HASH(0xa0ba1c9c) von 5 Sternen Fast paced, captivating story 12. April 2011

Will Granger created an exciting story of Anabar who is a very captivating character. I'm used to speed reading since college, usually I scan the books I read for keywords on the pages to get the story. I couldn't do that with this book. I slowed down after the third page and went back to read in "slow mode" to savor the beautiful sentences and the description of Anabar's journey. I recommend this book to the ones who like fast actions, deep emotions and fresh ideas about a hero's journey.

HASH(0xa0c3f474) von 5 Sternen great story, slow start 4. Januar 2012
Von Michelle Isenhoff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This marks the first time I've actually solicited an author for a book to review on my blog. The title intrigued me. I just love the name Anabar. But I have to admit, it took me a little time to warm to the story.

Anabar's Run starts out slowly, with a wide, panoramic view of the valley and a lengthy description of its inhabitants. The prose is very straightforward, often repetitive, and not particularly artful. It has the narrated, old-fashioned feel a fairy tale, and I didn't really care for the style. I had requested the book, however, so I felt obligated to press on. I am glad I did.

Once Anabar makes the choice to leave home and train with Omalof to be a Scout, the story becomes much more intriguing. Anabar fills out into a real character as he struggles to measure up to his teacher's expectations. I found myself cheering him on as he undertook his training. Very thorough training, I might add. Granger obviously has some experience in survival basics to be able to relay it so realistically. Anabar is taught to fight with a sword, to move silently, to fish, to eavesdrop without being noticed, and a hundred other skills I never would have thought to include. By his final test, I was fully in Anabar's court and thoroughly drawn into the story. It ends a little bluntly, but it ends right.

Now a note on content. The language is clean. There is some violence, but it's easily within the bounds of child-appropriate. The main character is sixteen, but I wouldn't hesitate to let young middle graders read it. In fact, I think they might be more suited to the writing style than teens. They'll surely love the adventure. I'd judge the book's best audience in the 8-14 age range and particularly - but not exclusively - boys.

In conclusion, Anabar's Run didn't make my favorites list, but the story ended up being pretty solid. If you have an adventurous boy OR girl, I'd definitely say it's worth picking up for its bargain price.

Mr. Granger has a really cool website dedicated to the series that I think kids will enjoy. Check it out at [...].

I recieved a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0xa0e55fcc) von 5 Sternen A great adventure for young men: clear, engaging and positive 4. November 2011
Von Scott Bury - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I liked Anabar's Run: it has a simple, very clear style well suited to younger readers, particularly boys. It evokes the style of grade-school readers: simple words, mostly short sentences and a straightforwardness that paints vivid pictures.

This rite-of-passage story is a metaphor for the journey every boy has to make into manhood. That in itself is refreshing--the majority of new commercial fiction seems to be aimed solely at preteen girls. Is the publishing industry now so sexist that it believes young men do not read

What I liked:
Anabar's Run opens like a fairy tale, with a description of Anabar's home: a beautiful, fertile valley, isolated and therefore protected from the rest of the world. It's simultaneously familiar and foreign--character names like Tom and Ralph make it seem homey, while the fantasy element is brought in with names like Pompor and the names of the two countries on whose border the valley is set: Semdela and Ricamerath. The time is pre-industrial: weapons are swords and knives, travel is done on horse.

Anabar is sixteen, on the brink of manhood, an orphan raised by his two neighbours, the pompous Pompor and the simple Tom. These two are deftly drawn. With little description, the author has created believable characters.

Anabar begins to explore beyond the boundaries of his world, but on his first foray outside the valley, he meets two dangerous men and barely escapes--again, something that every man can identify with. He returns home with a few injuries, but the outside world in the form of a mysterious scout named Omalof has noticed him. Omalof follows Anabar home and presents him an opportunity: become a Scout like him. However, it will require tough training and several tests.

The plot proceeds quickly with increasingly difficult challenges. Anabar meets more people and enters a town for the first him in his life. His reactions and inner dialogue are very clear and believable, and he shows himself to be an admirable person

It's really only half a story. The author explains that he wrote a long novel and decided to break it at a logical point into two shortish novels. This makes each book seem less daunting, but it feels like there should be more. Yes, it's smart for a writer to make the reader want the sequel, but it feels a little like I've been short-changed.

The only other problem is that it needs a good, independent copy-edit and proofread. There are a number of typos, missing words and punctuation--nothing that interferes with reading the story, but it does show that every writer needs an editor. (On May 25, author Will Grainger posted on his blog that he is correcting the novel as much as he can.)

So, I'm giving this story 4 out of 5, and I'm going to read the sequel, Anabar Rises.

Review by This Kid Reviews Books! Find me on the web!

16-year old Anabar wanted to leave the valley he lived in and see the world. When he climbs a mountain, he tumbles down and gets captured by two bandits that want a valuable stone Anabar is carrying. He manages to escape and runs back to his valley. Anabar starts asking questions about who his parents were (he is an orphan), how they died and how his neighbors came into the valley. A few days later, a stranger came into the valley. His name was Omalof, and he asked Anabar if he wanted to go with him and train as a scout, a protector of Anabar's homeland Semdela. Anabar accepts the challenge and has to undergo harsh and dangerous training.Training that leads Anabar into adventures he never imagined.

I truly enjoyed "Anabar's Run" because of the tons of adventure and excitement in it. Anabar was an awesome main character. I really wanted him to succeed. Omalof is my favorite character because I liked him as a teacher/trainer and he was strong and calm and taught Anabar all kinds of cool things. Mr. Granger described Anabar's homeland, Semdela very well. I could really picture it in my mind and I felt the action in the book. I really felt like I was next to Anabar! I think the story ended too quickly but I understand that Mr. Granger continued the story in the next book in the series, "Anabar Rises." I did notice some editing mistakes (punctuation and mis-spelling) that really didn't bother me, but I think some people would mind it. The book had no bad language in it but did have some mild violence. There was nothing graphic but kind of like Jackie Chan, ninja violence. In summary, I think "Anabar's Run" is an awesome adventure story where a boy discovers meaning in his life! "Anabar's Run" is the first book of the trilogy. The second book, "Anabar's Rises" is also available at Amazon.

"Anabar's Run" earns a spot on my "to be read again" shelf and I am looking forward to reading "Anabar Rises"!
