I decided to read this book because I watched the movie and wanted to see how the book was.
Enter Darren Shan-a typical teenager with friends and a normal family who finds himself thrust into his destiny. In a desparate attempt to save his friend, he embarks onto a macabre journey into another world. the world of cirque De Freak.
A story of friendship in unlikely places with a touch of the macrabe to spice up your reading pleasure.
This was an easy read as it is Young Adult and I was able to finish quickly.
I would recommend this for kids 12 and up who like a little scare but not enough to cause nightmares.
