I feel like they always judged him and he always wanted to fade into the background to escape their judgement.
Your thoughts? Connie Yes, they did. And Rowan did some of his own misjudging. I think most of them learned to understand each other better in the end. See 2 questions about Rowan of Rin….

This was nowhere near as good as Deltora Quest, in my opinion. It could have something to do with the fact that I never read Rowan of Rin as a kid and don't have that nostalgia factor, but I feel like the scope of things in DQ were bigger and the stakes were so much higher and the story much more interesting.
I still enjoyed it, but DQ will always have my heart. View all 3 comments. Aug 16, Argona rated it really liked it Shelves: all-time-favorites , magic , childhood-memories , fantasy , reviewed , high-fantasy , dragons , favorite-fantasy-series , mystery.
I have such wonderful memories from this series. I admit that these books are best suitable for very young readers but the concept is enjoyable for all ages. I have spent many years with this series and this fantasy world and the characters in it have grown into much more than what they are or at least what they appear to be at first look. My only regret is that these tales are too short for they are simply beautiful. This series tells the story of a boy who is different than all others in his v I have such wonderful memories from this series.
This series tells the story of a boy who is different than all others in his village. A very kind, fragile and sometimes sickly boy who has come to think of himself as unworthy and who can only find comfort in the animals he kindly cares for. Animals that love him back and answer his touch.
This boy is forced to embark on an adventure and learn to embrace his differences. He learns that small hands can have great powers and that it is in embracing differences that true harmony can be reached. He changes and he changes the world around him. That's the beauty of it. He is not the only one who has to change their perception of the world and people that live in it. His people grow with him! He finds friendship in least expected places and he learns what true courage.
These are beautiful concepts for young readers to think about. The story might appear simple and even flat at certain points but there is great depth to it and in my imagination, Rowan's world will forever remain alive and treasured. In this particular book, the story begins. Rowans takes his very first steps in finding his real identity and he learns that sometimes solutions to great problems are as simple as a gesture of kindness.
Something that might appear insignificant and yet many are incapable of attempting it. There is strength in kindness. That's what Rowan of Rin is about. View all 5 comments. Argona Thank you, my dear Sheziss.
Maali Lovely summary. I agree with the very young readers part. We read this for our novel study is Year 6 and even then it was too young. Nov 05, Alexxy rated it it was ok Shelves: fantasy , reads , male-mc. Rowan of Rin is a children's book so I'm gonna do a little comparing with Narnia and Oz series: Rowan lacks the writing brilliancy the other two had. Everything about the text was so simple, it reminded me of the book I wrote when I was Oh, those sweet times On the other hand, Rowan was simply not irritating.
If you go back to my review of Narnia and Oz you'll see that I was annoyed by literally everything. At least I didn't pull my hair out every second of reading this book. Also, everythin Rowan of Rin is a children's book so I'm gonna do a little comparing with Narnia and Oz series: Rowan lacks the writing brilliancy the other two had. Also, everything was predictable and the problems and obstacles got solved very lamely.
That, I'm going to blame on the fact that it's a children's book and I shouldn't have built my hopes up. I'm going to read the rest of the series, just to see what happens. View 1 comment.

People in Rin were expected to grow up handling every physic aspect of life with perfection. But not Rowan. He was always too skinny, too thin, too scared… Useless. All the kids always made fun of him. The only creatures that ever believed him and never made fun of him. That trusted him. Even if it scared him to death. As always, Brazilian publishers took so long between a book and other that I stopped reading it on the second book and when I got myself the third book, I could hardly remember the story at all.
Hence the re-read, haha! Rowan of Rin was everything good that I knew I had felt on my first reading and more.
I also read the following book in one seating, haha! Only the third was spilt on two sittings as life is not fair.
Rowan of Rin
The Rowan of Rin series is a series of five children's fantasy novels by Australian author Emily Rodda. The series follow the adventures of a shy village boy, Rowan. When Scholastic released Emily Rodda's Star of Deltora fantasy series, the Rowan of Rin series was revealed to be part of the world of Deltora, and the lands mentioned in the books are islands located to the west of Deltora. The Rowan stories take place in a fictional world, and each book always begin in the small village of Rin, an isolated valley that rests at the foot of the forbidden Mountain. West of the Mountain is an unnavigable wasteland, and east of Rin lies a river that runs into the sea. On the coast is the larger, more populous city of Maris, home to the fish-like Maris people. It is stated in Rowan and the Zebak that Maris is the only point on the coast where ships can land safely, as north and south of Maris the coast is lined by hazardous rocks and steep cliffs.
