I am sure many people would have found it boring - a book which drags on. But that is not the case, the book may lack strong action at the start but hey, this is the first book in the series and like many first books, the author clears up the setup in this book. Read it if you want to read the whole series and I can guarantee, you will not regret it. The FIRST book lacks much action, the others do not. Later on in the series, you realize this book is very important to get a clear view of the whole plot and setup. If you plan to read the series, do not skip and do not change your mind because of this one. the author gives many details about Cadvan's and Maerad's travels in the book, most of which are not repeated in the others (though, some details are not important but for those who love to jump into a different dimension of mind when reading, they are a must).

At first when I read this book, I didn't think I liked it.But after I finished it,and began reading other books, I couldn't stop thinking about it.Questions kept popping up in the back of mind,like,What will happen next? What will happen to Hem? And will Maerad ever see Hem again? I love this book, and im so excited for the next one. I love seeing the characters develope. I suggest that anyone who loves fantasy,should read this book!

One of the most amazing books I've read in a long time. Alison Croggon writes with a style that is up there with Tolkien and Tamora Pierce! I couldn't put The Naming down! Have a lot of time on hand when you start to read this book, because it will drag you in. You'll never want it to stop. On a scale of one to five The Naming gets a 5+!
