Teen Book Review

Review by Caroline, Northwest Branch


The Never War by D.J. MacHale

         Bobby Pendragon has traveled to different worlds. He has been in their past, their present, their future. But he has never explored his own planet, Earth. In order to save the future of Earth, Bobby must stop the evil Saint Dane (not the dog) from destroying the past of our world.
        The Never War shares a description of the 1930s from a modern day teenager's point of view.  Not only does it adventure into the past, it explores into our future.
         It is an easy, light read, and told from a relatable point of view. Anyone would like it, but it was tailor-made for sci fi lovers.

If you think this is exciting, be sure to read the whole Pendragon series!

Teen Book Review

hitchhikers    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

placesetting   The Restaurant At the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams

Review by Caroline, Northwest Branch

        The sequel to Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is random, funny, and makes you wonder about whether it was a good idea to invent the universe. It is a quirky science fiction with a surplus of British humor. You will journey through the destruction of the universe, how humans really evolved, and the reason why the universe is so messed up.
        I love the author's twisted view on the universe, and his creativeness. Adams created an entire universe from imagination- that, is truly amazing. Restaurant at the End of the Universe explains the universe, what's in it, and everything you couldn't imagine in a matter-of-fact, if not confusing, way.
        This novel is a bit mature, and at times hard to understand. Therefore, I recommend it to advanced readers, 13+. This is a young adult book,so adults will be addicted, too. But read Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, first!
