Zan-Gah: A Prehistoric Adventure - Allan Richard Shickman

For young adults ages 11 and up. An exciting, enriching, and deeply moving story of a youth who struggles with the difficulties of his primitive world and achieves manhood and leadership


My Review:
This story had everything you could want in an adventure. Making you turn the page to find out what happens next, as you follow the life of one very courageous lad. There were times in this book where I really wondered if this is what life would have been like, and I think the author captured that beautifully.
Such a thought provoking and well told tale, one that I did quite enjoy.
My only criticism is the authors' use of larger words. I, as an adult, enjoy learning new words and have no problem looking them up. However, I do not believe a teenager is going to stop and look up terms such as; ululation. Though I do love that word. I believe the book, to capture an active, young mind that would rather play Xbox, you need to keep it simple.
The other thing, I wasn't crazy about was the cover. I thought it was a flying squirrel, not a pouncing lion.
With that said, I really did love the story, and in turn love the book. I will be recommending to all young adults I know.

  1. I, too am an adult who read Zan-Gah, and I disagree that the vocabulary is too difficult for teens, though it is challenging. I think a lot can be understood in context and it would take away from the artistry of the author's prose. It won't hurt young people to be exposed to a higher level of reading material.
    For those who enjoyed this book, I highly recommend the sequel, "Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country". It's every bit as exciting as the first, and has a darker edge to it, since it deals with the boy grown up.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
