It is an action packed fairy tail. Its more awesome than you think. It has close to death situations. It stars two twelve year old twins. One is a girl and, one is a boy. The only question is, can they make it back in time?
The Land of Stories is one of the best books I have read so far, and that's saying a lot, because I read all the time. :D Anyways, it's about two twins- Alex and Conner- who are different in many ways. Alex is the smart kid and Conner is the lazy kid. They travel through a book into a realm called 'the Land of Stories', which is the FAIRYTALE world! They meet many new friends and discover shocking secrets. This is the real-deal book- great plot, realistic characters, and the thing I like most are all the COINCIDENCES and how you actually get to know what happens to the fairytale characters after the story! Reading this, I just found out so many things that I've be longing to know about fairytales! It explains everything- why the villians did what, and this book is only telling about a small, small section of fairytales! Don't forget though- it's a GREAT book that you MUST read or you will seriously miss out! I mean, why isn't this more popular? It totally crushes the Hunger Games in terms of awesomeness! Anyways, Chris Colfer is a great author. I've already read all the 5 books, so instead of rating each one I'll just say that YOU REALLY SHOULD READ ALL 5 BOOKS!!! Everything makes perfect sense! There are explanations for every, single, action that every single fairytale character has ever done! All wrote into 5 great books that have great action, drama, and twists! (I'm still waiting for the 6th book.) And YES, the series gets better and better after every book! :D
