The book 1 of the Naruto series by Masashi Kishimoto, is about a boy who saw life a different way then everyone else. He had no clue about what drove people away from him and what caused him to feel so alone. This boy, Naruto has pushed himself so hard to be noticed by all and to be acknowledged by all the villagers in his village. His home is found in the village hidden in the leaves or konoha for short. This village has people who have a gift of the will of fire within them. This boy tries to prove himself and goes out into the world and finds his own way (ninja way) to get his goal and finally be realized. Anyone who reads this series will find differences and that they will enjoy a book for its amazing line as a story and for its amazing plot and find the characters to see life as average people do. An interesting fact is that not only does the main character succeed in his quest and achieves his goal. But his new found friend Iruka sensei also shows companionship between master and student. Same with parents, and in Naruto’s case he did not have any and people always struggle in real life without parents and find out that they also seek attention. Naruto’s deep passion to be acknowledged is always sought out though many children and many can relate to Naruto this way. An amazing book none the less and the story pulls itself from the way people treat each other if they are different. truly outstanding.

I love NARUTO. It's one of the greatest series EVER for boys and girls. I do recommend people to watch the anime though because it's much more easier to understand the action compared to reading. But if you are like me and rather just understand the story FAST and don't care much for the battles, then just read the manga.
