Magic Kingdom for Sale – Sold! by Terry Brooks

Magic Kingdom for Sale – Sold! by Terry Brooks: This was my introduction to Terry Brooks (not counting the novelization of The Phantom Menace, which I am embarrassed to admit to purchasing), and it was pretty good. The premise was straightforward: depressed lawyer Ben Holiday sees a magic kingdom for sale in a department store catalog, purchases it, and discovers it’s not quite everything he hoped it would be. It was well-written and clever, if a bit predictable. It reminded me a lot of the books I read back in middle school, and in its own way was a pleasant trip down memory lane. In short, it’s a relaxing bit of light fantasy, but nothing I would go out of my way for.
