Although I did not read this book, my 9 year old son did and loved it. Ironically, one rainy Saturday morning, we turned on the TV to find the movie version on and he had just finished the book. I found the movie interesting but of course my son said it wasn't as good as the book. We just received the next book in the series and he can't wait to get started. Judging from the movie, I would say this book has quite a few layers and is appropriate for advanced readers in the 9-12 range.
