A Door In The Woods by James Dashner

Title:  A Door In The Woods
Author:  James Dashner
Pages:  171
Genre:  Juvenile Fantasy Fiction
Publisher:  Bonneville Books, 2003
Series:  Jimmy Fincher Saga, Book 1

Synopsis:  Jimmy Fincher entered the dark woods on a day like any other.

But what he sees there changes his perception of reality and sets off a chain of events that explodes in a torrent of suspense and excitement.  An ancient legend comes to life.  A conspiracy of madmen.  Strange portals to other worlds.  Villains named everything from Raspy to Shadow Ka.

And behind it all is the old wooden door, lying deep in the forest by Fincher's home.

Review:  What fun this book is!  It's refreshing and full of good, hopeful feelings.  It's also full of scares and thrills and adventure.  It's obviously written for the younger reader, but that didn't stop me from reading it obsessively and finishing it in one afternoon.

I've been a fan of James Dashner since his Maze Runner series.  I'm not at all surprised that I really liked this book.  While it isn't as good as The Maze Runner, it's a wonderful story and I can't wait to start book two tomorrow.

Rating:  8.5 / 10
