Personally, I'm a huge fan of The Legend of Zelda series. I've been playing the games for a long time and was excited to see a Manga version of the stories. And while it was pretty good overall, it still didn't hit a few marks I wish it would have. The book does a great job at keeping you entertained with no lull in-between plot points. But it does so at the expense of it feeling rushed. I don't know if it's just because I've played these games so I realize that it really took Link something like 5 hours to do this part, and so to sum it up in 3 pages is a little lackluster. I think I would have just appreciated it more if they slowed it down and just let the story take longer to tell. I've seen reviews that comment on the art being too kiddy, but I think it fit perfectly for the book. I mean it's about the Ocarina of Time, and him going from a little kid to an adult. Not to mention that the graphics from the game fit the kiddy style as well. I'm definitely interested in the sequels of it, and I think its well worth the time to read it.

This book is enjoyable, well written, and well illustrated. it stays true to the game, and does a great job of taking the story of this 30hour game and condensing it to a much smaller size. A good read.
