First I have to say that I´m not a Naruto fan. Nevertheless I read this novel and really liked it.

The novel tells the same story as the first few manga volumes. Naruto becomes a ninja and soon he has to do his first job: protecting workers that build a bridge. And they have to fight the strong and dangerous ninja Zabuza.

I don´t really know anything about the Naruto universe, but I think that this novel is a must-read for true fans. And of course all others, too^^

Mixed Feelings
This is not a new story. This is literally a recap of few arcs from beginning of Naruto.

Given the nature of recap, the enjoyment might change depending on how much you’ve even liked Naruto in the first place. Covering stories such as Naruto acquiring the shadow clone jutsu, Kakashi’s bell test or Zabuza and Haku fights, this novel admittedly consists of what could be called early classics of the storyline, before Naruto became too convoluted for its own good. So as a trip down the memory lane, it could prove enjoyable if you’re part of the fanbase.

I can’t say I’ve noticed any novel-specific part ...
