This was a very good idea for a story, but it felt like I was reading a rough draft. The wording was sometimes confusing. The characters were not fleshed out, nor were they consistent or believable in there personalities. Their conversations with each other was childish, and sounded amateurish. Also, facts were inconsistent. For example, Max's sister was the eldest in one part of the story, and she was the younger sibling in another place. There were several of these inconsistencies. Although the idea was good, the story drug along, and really had no point in the end. However, it was interesting enough for me to read to the end, but the end left a sense of dissatisfaction. The book was poorly edited, and I do not want to read the sequel because of all the flaws in the first book.
Written by a child
I read the whole......book. In a word, disappointed. I kept waiting for it to get better, but it didn't, my fault there.
It reads like a serious children's book. It has the makings of a solid sci-fi but fails in every possible way.
Save your money and time, nothing here to see.
