I riffled through the pages when it arrived and realized it was perfect for him (bite-size pieces of information that he can pursue further if he's curious) except for the Supernatural and Superweird chapter. He's more of a "Just the facts, ma'am" kind of kid. So I figured he could just skip that chapter, no problem. His auntie, however, happens to be very interested in the Supernatural and Superweird, so I started reading that chapter. It was fascinating! Unfortunately there was language in that section of the book that I felt uncomfortable giving to him, and I knew his parents would definitely frown upon it! His upbringing is a bit (okay, a LOT) more innocent than a lot of kids these days - he and his younger brother and sister don't watch TV, they don't have video games or phones, and they are home-schooled. No they are not Amish. :)
I think the book is great, and probably would be fine for most older kids these days, as a typical video game is much more violent than the stories in the book. But I thought I would let others know about some of the language in case they are of similar mind as my nephew's family.
Examples of the language I felt was inappropriate included mentions of rape, abortion, sexual assault by demons, murder, beheading, and the like.
I understand he'll be exposed to this kind of stuff probably in the near future. But I don't want to be the one who does it!
