User Comments

The books in this series are quite a bit more detailed and well-written than the average book in the Choose Your Own Adventure series. However, that doesn't mean they will appeal to most readers. For one thing, they have very few choices and endings. Sometimes, 15 or more pages of text go by without a choice! Readers with short attention spans might want to look elsewhere for a good gamebook, but if you're a fan of history or Young Indiana Jones, or you just wonder what it was like back in the early 20th century, these books just might be for you!
