Jim Springman and the Realm of Glory product reviews

Jim's birthday is turning into a total disaster. His present is a bus pass, two annoying girls have moved in next door, and his mad-scientist brother has just accidentally altered reality as we know it by unleashing the Fifth Dimension.

Suddenly there are goblins riding the bus and a huge dragon terrorising the town. In fact, the town of Queen's Port is starting to resemble the bestselling fantasy novel The Realm of Glory - Jim's least-favourite book.

And guess who's expected to fix it all?

In this story a young boy's 12th birthday is turning into a complete disaster. Two annoying girls have moved in next door, his birthday presents are a copy of his least favourite book written by his eccentric sister, and his scientist brother has unleashed the 5th dimension. This is the second-longest book I've read, yet I found it incredibly difficult to stop reading it until I had finished! It was so mind blowing and intense, and it is definitely one that I want to read again. However, I was a bit worried in some parts like when Jim was in a heap of trouble near the end, but it just added to the enjoyment of the book.
One of the characters, Ingrid, was a bit annoying as the only thing she thought about was money, and she spent it like there was no tomorrow. As for her brother Fletcher, he was a bit like his sister, except he only thought about his experiments, plus I found him to be quite conceited and arrogant. I thought that Jim was a brave and interesting character, except for the fact that he was a little self-conscious when it came to girls, but other than that I was quite fond of him.
I think that 10 years and over is a good age group for the Realm of Glory as it was so cool that I think almost anyone will love it. I thought that the storyline was so well written that I could almost see it in my head as if it were a movie in my head, so the author, Joshua Wright, has made a wonderful book. Jim Springman and the Realm of Glory is an awesome novel, so I hope that you'll enjoy it too.
