The book that I read was The Eyes of the Dragon. The author was Stephen King. It
was published in 1987.
Stephen King grew up in Maine and has lived most of his
adult life there, both in Bangor and in the Portland area. He and his wife,
Tabitha, have three children, Naomi, Joe, and Owen Philip. This story took place
in the fairy tale times with Kings and Dragons. The kings name was Roland.
was a good king. He had two sons. Peter, the first son, was good at every thing
and his father and every one else loved him. Thomas was just a reject.
He had no
friends and his Father didn’t even care for him. Flagg was the Magician. Flagg
was trying to manipulate the kingdom so that he could end up in control and
after 5000 years his chance had finally come. He killed Roland and framed Peter
so that he would have to go to jail for life.
Thomas was then king and Flagg was
his friend and teacher. Flagg taxed the town and beheaded people for anything
that they did. The title of the book came from the passage that Flagg had shown
Thomas that lead to the head of a Dragon head that was hanging in his fathers
room. He saw Flagg poison his father and he was to scared to tell anyone.
way, Peter excapes and kills Flagg. Thomas was just a followed of any one who
would be his friend. He was stupid and he never expected to be king so he didn’t
pay attention in class. Peter was the perfect son.
He won all of the castle
competitions. Every body in the entire kingdom loved him. Flagg was just plain
evil. Every thing he did, he did for the good of evil.
He finally got his way
with the world and he took complete advantage of it. Stephen Kings style is to
keep the reader from knowing to much and in some places in the book it gets very
boring and then every thing starts to pick up. I like his style because it reads
very quickly and is very entertaining. I think that this is one of the better
books that I have ever read.
I would recommend it to any one who has a brain in
