Nov 02, Kim rated it liked it. I can only hope he maintains his good characterization; villains tend to fall flat during the final encounter in most books I’ve read; the more sadistic they are, the worse they turn out in the end.
She merely serves as a guilt-fount for our narrator and contributes none of her previous insights to the problems he faces except for occasional moralistic one-liners. Some concepts, for example the technology and other related topics, were hard to understand.
Dies alles wirkte auf mich realistisch und nicht erzwungen. The book was good, but admittedly I liked Cadel more when he was manipulating people. It really seemed made up, and badly. He only had so many options, given his situation, but when he was stuck in an adult-enforced situation, he just tended to mope or whine instead of getting himself out of the situation.
The moment we had that scene between Saul, Fiona and Cadel I looked up and told my brother – they are going to get married and adopt him huh? I agree with my brother that Part 4 – when Prosper English breaks out of gaol and kidnaps Cadel, is the most exciting part of the book. At the beginning, he’s living a mostly restricted life. He’s miserable as he tries to bide his time until the slow-moving authorities can find out who he is and where he belongs.
I can’t wait to start the next book!!!
Settings Tips on technique 3: I rate this book Highly Recommended. Preview — Genius Squad by Catherine Jinks.
I guess the Axis Institute was good for something after all! His reasoning for this, is that he believes that Genius Squad might just be their best chance of finding Prosper and bringing him sqhad once and for all. Feb 02, Omkar K. Die Kapitel sind wieder angenehm lang — ca.

One of my nitpicks would be that the other genius kids didn’t seem all that genius to me. Keep Cadel the feelings-challenged outcast! Imagine Harry Potter brought up by Lord Voldemort, and you have some idea.

This page was last edited on 28 Marchat Thanks for telling us about the problem. Imagine been in constant surveillance, because any moment someone might try to kill you. All in all, I really loved the book. Even just a little bit. There was uinks extremely different attitude in the second installment of the trilogy. Maybe that’s a bit of exaggeration, but I’m a little disappointed in the low reviews especially when I think Jinks is a talented writer who did a great job. Jikns life is made even worse due to his foster brother “Mace” real name: I thought it would be a sure thing the second book would compare, but unfortunately no.
