Magic Kingdom for Sale – Sold!

Magic Kingdom of Landover #1

Terry Brooks

308 Pages

3 Stars


A man who is widowed, “buys” a Magic Kingdom because he has nothing left to live for. Ends up saving the Kingdom and himself. Isaac Demme pointed out that this Landover series was not good because there was no depth to the characters and that we only enjoyed the first one because it was all new. Since this is my 3rd or 4th time reading this, I was looking to disprove that. Sadly, I couldn’t. A good read, as long as you don’t read any of the following 🙂

  1. It wasn’t that bad! Sure, its a little on the shallow side, but this isn’t some fantasy epic where we go deep into the psyche of every character and suffer pages of angst while they worry about life. I kind of prefer that from time to time.

    1. And that is why it still got 3 stars.

      But after multiple re-reads, the flaws became glaring. This should have been a read once or twice and then never again kind of book. But I was young and thought I knew better 😉
