First Impressions:

When I read this in high school, I loved it. It was full of adventure, twists and turns, and moments of love that I had not yet experienced. Reading it again, made me see how enchanting this book really is.

Full Analysis:

This book has been one of the most enchanting stories I have ever read. The major topic being on the focus you need to follow your dream, it also reminds you to see around you along the way and learn from the things you experiences on your journey. When we are young, we are constantly taking in the world around us and learning from it, but as we get older our view of the world narrows and we stop seeing it. We get older and become the Crystal Merchant, or the Englishman and stop going after our Personal Legend.
