    • The Adventures of Dod, by author Thomas R. Williams is simply put, the worst book I've ever read in my whole entire freaking life. Well, I guess I can't say that. I actually couldn't finish reading it. If you're at all familiar with the Harry Potter series there's something just for you in this book, like the confused young hero thrust into a magical world he's unfamiliar with, Dod (Harry Potter). Or the brainy and organized girl who keeps the rascally boys in line, Dilly (Hermione). Or the lova [...]


    • I enjoyed this book. Those who felt a loss at the end of the Potter series should give this a try. It is in the same vein as the Harry Potter books; action, adventure, suspense, and a "magical" element. Yes, it did have a lot of strange character names and new "vocabulary", but when we first read Harry Potter "quidditch", "Dumbledore", and "muggle" were fairly absurd words too! I let my son read this book (he is an avid reader and despite the length, he burned right through it in only a couple d [...]


    • My 4th-grader got this book from school. We've taken turns reading it. My 15-year-old son loved it! My 12-year-old daughter thought it was pretty cool. My 10-year-old is still reading it with his class. I loved it! I liked that I had to use my brain to connect the clues. I like mystery and adventure, and this book had both.After reading half the book, I re-read the first few pages of chapter one and it clicked!--brilliant!--Even the picture was a symbolic clue of sorts: The boy struck out at bas [...]


    • This book was given to all of the 4th-6th graders at my children's school.The basic plot of the book is really creative and interesting, but I found myself confused and not sure what was going on most of the time. The characters weren't very well developed and I really didn't connect to any of them in any way at all. Some very important characters were only mentioned in passing early in the book, but then were very important at the end. I'm going to try to read it again and see if maybe I just w [...]

    • I really liked this book! I read it wih my classmates at school and we all thought it was super awsome and can't wait until the next book comes out. I really liked the characters Boot,Buck,Dungo,Bowlure,and Dod.But my favorite is Boot because he is a joker most of the time but he is a good leader and is nice to all his friends.


    • This book is AWSOME! I loved the characters and the way they react together. It seems as though i'm really watching the people talk to each other. One thing I like about the book is that everyone has a true reason for what they do. Other books just dont have that. Im totally hooked on the searies!




    • It was interesting and the story immediately caught my attention in the first chapter and kept me itching my fingers for more pages to turn.



    • I liked this book a lot and think it is fun. I like the beginning where Dod is suddenly on a rope climbing up a cliff and how Bowlure is really nice to Dod when everyone else gets mad at him. Something cool that happens is he flips a carriage that his friend and his mentor are in pretty much right after recovering from an injury! The book even has a bit of a Harry Potter feel to it too, Unknowing kid gets shoved into a magical world, a kind old person helps him get used to it, he has someone tha [...]


    • This book is the first of seven?! Don't waste your time! I admire the authors desire to write a big fantasy book like this, but seriously? He either needs some advice or serious revision. It seems like commas are overused and in the wrong places, scene and chapter transitions are odd and sometimes unnecessary, too many random exclamation points, the names and made up words started getting on my nerves. The only reason I finished the whole book was to be able to critique it more fully, actually. [...]


    • My family LOVES this series! Book 1 does have a lot of info to take in. There are some details that may seem at first to be unimportant, but become more important as the book (& especially the series)moves forward. I imagine that it must be tuff creating a foundation for a deep plotted series in the first book ---without being completely obvious. Book 1 is great. Book 2 is even better--- you come to know and love the characters SO much more, and develop/deepen your theories about the plot in [...]

    • This is a great book! My 4th grader got this book from school and our family has taken turns reading it. My 15-year-old son loved it, my 12-year-old daughter thought it was pretty cool, and my 10-year-old son is still reading it with his class and loving it. I loved this book! I liked that I had to exercise my brain to follow the clues throughout the book. It has a really deep plot. After reading half of the book I went back and re-read the first few pages of the first chapter and it clicked!--B [...]


    • I loved this book. It was awsome! I read the whole thing, cover to cover, and can't wait till book two comes out! The cliffhanger at the beginning of the book left me with several questions, which led me into reading deeper into the story in order to find out what happened. To my surprise, the author left clues throughout the book that told what happened in the seen at the beginning where Pap and The Dread fought. I'm beginning to think that what the author said in the proloug has more meaning t [...]


    • The adventures of Dod has a deceiving cover. I started this book because my mom made me, but I hated the cover. I LOVE this book so much. I was so giddy to find out more in the story that I couldn't put it down. When i finished I was almost sad that I had already finished the first part of my adventure and I could see the end nearing. There is such an amazingly and dreadfully slow leak of information that it kept me so excited and reading because I just had to know everything! I recommend this b [...]


    • There's a reason why they gave every kid in my little brother's 5th Grade class this book for freeIt has been said not to judge a book by it's cover buta cover should be an ideal representation of the book.Sadly, for this book, a photo-shopped badly taken picture of a 21 year old wearing clothes from the 90's, while standing in front of a cliche castle-at-twilight backdrop is an exact representation of this book's contents.The Plus side? There's one more thing to make fun of in the world


    • I had a very hard time liking this book. Melanie got it in class and wanted me to read it. It has a lot of ties to Utah. It was confusing. They didn't explain very much, and when they did, it was like an afterthought. The character development was lacking as well. I didn't care much about DOD. The plot was really cool though. He could have done so much better with the plot. I did like, that at end, I was guessing "whodunit". I like those type of books. This could have done so much better.


    • My daughter gave me book one and two. It took me a while to catch on to the the different world type names and group titles but by the end of book one I'm now ready to jump into book two! Fun read about a 14 year old boy and his adventures outside of his normal life, the life and places his adored Grandfather lived in. I also enjoyed the discussion questions at the end of book one. Would be great for any middle school child to read and discuss with a parent.


    • I would actually give this book a 2.5 if that were an option. The first 100 pages were confusing. The middles was a great fun story. The end seemed to just wrap everything up in a hurry. I don't love fantasy. I was reading this for my 9 year old. I would be interested to hear the opinon of someone who likes fantasy more.


    • This book is very long and very hard to follow. I even wonder if the good reviews come from the publisher. It is one of the most boring books I have read.



    • The Adventures of Dod book one is personally a good read if you liked the Harry Potter series, because there are quite a few similar styles. I personally really enjoyed the way the author used the medallion in conjunction with the character's Mysterious family members.The plot is very imaginative, because the character swaps between two worlds with a medallion that stops time on the world he's not on, but it only works while he's wearing it, and if he loses the medallion, he can't return to the [...]



    • The Adventures of Dod by Thomas R. Williams The Adventures of Dod is about a fourteen-year-old boy named Cole Richards whose grandfather dies, leaving him with a golden coin medallion. The coin is a “portal” to another world, where Cole makes new friends and faces The Dread, defeating him and revealing him as the trusted sword instructor Sirlonk. The protagonist Cole, who is known in the world of Green as Dod, was mostly revealed through different circumstances he was put in. For example, wh [...]


    • The Adventures of Dod was a great book. There were some parts that I got lost on, or wish they had gone into more detail on something, but other that that it was a good book. In some parts it was suspenseful, in others adventures or dangerous. In the book Dod meets some very interesting people/creatures. For example Dungo is a giant 4-armed sort of gorilla looking thing that is hairy, and smells horrible. Then he meets Bowlure who is sort of like Dungo except without the extra set of arms and le [...]


    • This is one of those books I enjoyed before something offensive stunk up my imagination.The prologue was poorly written, and did more telling rather than showing/describing the characters and their feelings. However, the prose is a hundred times better starting Chapter 1. It's rather strange; it's like the two parts were written by two separate people, or someone didn't bother to edit the draft of the prologue.So starting in Chapter 1 I sincerely started enjoying the story until our protagonist [...]


    • I read this whole Series rather quickly it is good and exciting for any true book worm and good reader. The story line and idea is breath taking! It's a little difficult for someone who enjoys simpler books, but for anyone who is a really well rounded patient reader who will wait for the adventure of a lifetime it is defiantly worth the read! I was very impressed, and it's a huge suggestion to anyone willing to take the plunge into this whole new world!
