My opinion of this book is that everyone should read it so they know how to be true to themselves. I really like that in the book it shows you what could happen if magic was at the fingertips of the world's would-be conquerors--what could happen if Hitler had the power to change anything he wanted. This book also gives you different points of view from one person to another. I think that the shifting of point of view is good because it shows how many sides to a conflict there can be. I would read this book so that you can learn that one of life's lessons is to be true to yourself.
