Book Review: 100 Cupboards
TITLE: 100 Cupboards
SHORT PREMISE: A boy discovers a wall of a 100 cupboard doors.
MY REVIEW: Henry is sent to live with his aunt and uncle for the summer and discovers that his room has a bunch of cupboard doors under the plaster. When he and his cousin finally manage to open one, they see another world...
For the age group this book is aimed at (I'm guessing tween age boys) this book is all right. Honestly though, I just found it boring. Anyone who's ever read Narnia could tell where this was leading and much of the writing is flat and it's slow and doesn't have much character depth.
So if you are above the age group it's intended for, don't bother. However if you're looking for something for your grade-school boy to read, they may get a kick out of this.
WHO SHOULD READ: Younger grade-school boys
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five cupboards
