Naruto is a ninja-in-training with a need for attention, a knack for mischief and, sealed within him, a strange, formidable power. His antics amuse his instructor Kakashi and irritate his teammates, intense Sasuke and witty Sakura, but Naruto is serious about becoming the greatest ninja in the village of Konohagakure! Believe it!

awesome lots of action

I've watched the anime already and I deeply recommend the Manga, the plot is predictable but yet surprising

I watched the whole anime;)

this is so good i watch naruto i dont watch .

What do you get if you mix amazing animation and great plot and jokes that always hit home ? 9/10

I love this book! *secret* ''I like Sasuke''

This is a great series and book. I just finished watching Naruto and now im on Naruto shippuden. Trust me, if you think this series is messed up because of the trailers, then you're messed up!

Naruto is a great book you should read. It is about a young boy named Naruto Uzumaki who has a 9 Tailed Beast (Bijuu) inside him (the bijuu's/beast's name is Kurama). He is separated from the other kids because they think of him as the beast, not as the one who keeps it in their body. His goal is to be the greatest hokage (ninja president in their village). He fails the exam to become a ninja again, but later his sensei Iruka is about to get killed by another person, Mizuki. Naruto does a "jutsu" (basically magic powers) to clone himself 999 other times. He defeats Mizuki and Iruka gives him a ninja headband, which proves he is a ninja. The next day all the Genin (the lowest ninja rank other than the academy student) are separated into squads of 4 (one sensei and 3 genin). He is put with his crush Sakura, but his rival, Sasuke. Sasuke has no family just like Naruto, but he has one brother. His brother destroyed his entire clan (family) and Sasuke wants vengence. Sakura isn't very important, since she only cares about getting with Sasuke. Their ninja teacher, is Kakashi Hatake. It is a great book!
