<r><I><s></s>Becoming The Dragon<e></e></I> , written by Alex Sapegin,is a book written for the fan of fantasy and/or science fiction. A young man,Andy, has a lot of responsibility to care for his sisters and his pet, Bon. He had a "accident" as a young child which caused him to not be able to be around computers. One evening, on his way to take a meal to his father at work, he accidently walks right into a science experiment. He is transported to another world with strange places, animals and people. He encounters a diverse group of wildlife, fairies and elves who change his life.
The beginning of the book seemed to give too much detail about the world the character,Andy, lived in prior to his transportation to a different world. I felt too much of the book was given to these details that did not seem to matter later on in the book. The descriptions of the different parts of the fantasy world were good, I could almost see the vegetation and the animals.
The book also introduced too many different characters that could not be fully developed. There were a number characters who were introduced but did not seem to be essential to the story.
This book may appeal to the avid reader of fantasy books. I would not recommend it to the occasional reader ,or as the first try for someone who has not previously been a fantasy or science fiction fan. I feel like it would definitely turn them away from this kind of book.
I would only give this book </s>1 out of 4 stars.<e> The book was divided into 5 different parts and came across as fragmented or disjointed. It seemed to stray from the original plot of the book. The storyline was difficult to follow and left me asking too many questions. I felt lost for much of the book. This fragmentation was what I liked least about the book. I liked the vivid descriptions most about the book.</r>
