Demian's Thoughts:

This is quite a well-designed gamebook; the continuity is good, and some parts of the book are re-used in such a way that some paths through the story last longer than is usual for the series (though this practice does tend to lead to "reruns" when a seemingly unrelated path leads to a familiar place).
