I had the same problem with The Hobbit. What happened after?
He went from a snooty, stubborn, self righteous boy, stuck in his ways especially those considering slaves, to a mature open minded man. You are commenting using your WordPress.

What I wanted to highlight in the book was that we don't have to repeat the mistakes of the past. We don't have to go along with injustice simply because it's become a tradition. We all have the power to change, and we should forever be looking closely at ourselves and asking if change is necessary -- regardless of the colour of our skin, our belief system, or anything else. Jebel Rum is the runt of his family, and has been publicly shamed by his father, the much honored executioner of Wadi.

Jebel wants to compete in the competition to become the next executioner, but knows he has no chance of winning. Jebel decides to set out on a quest to ask the high god Sabbah Eid for invincibility.

The quest will be long and hard and take many months. Not only that, but Jebel must find a slave that will go with him, and then allow himself to be sacrificed to the high god. Jebel finds Tel Hesani, who is willing to sacrifice his own life in return for his family's freedom, and the two set off.
Things do not go as planned. So this was fun. Adventury, quest filled, evil lurking at every corner. Bratty spoiled rich boy who Learns A Valuable Lesson. It took him a long time to learn his valuable lesson. Jebel sure was full of himself. Darren Shan wrote the Cirque Du Freak series, his horror background comes through, although only a little. It was mostly straight adventure, with some monsters and grave robbing and cannibalism thrown in.
That kid that comes into your library who loves adventure and gore will love this. Something I want to talk about though.
