Review: Zan-Gah is a really amazing book. It’s quite short and has some really good descriptions. Zan-Gah is really well written and I think that Allan Richard Shickman did an amazing job with his descriptive writing. Not being an expert on prehistoric times I felt that his descriptions were good enough to make it easy to imagine I was there.
The story itself was intriguing and I enjoyed following Zan along on his journey. He met so many different people and some of them were good, some were bad. All of them were interesting. The different areas that Zan journeyed through were quite amazing and it just made the book all that more enjoyable.
Zan-Gah doesn’t take very long to read but it is thoroughly enjoyable. If you have a spare half hour to an hour and you’re looking for something a little different, that’s light, easy and has fantastic descriptive writing then I think you’ll enjoy Zan-Gah : A Prehistoric Adventure.
