Daniel X: Game Over - James Patterson

  Patterson has really hit top gear with this installment in the Daniel X series, it is action packed and fast paced but it also brings in new elements to the story. The human race is more involved here than ever before which makes the story seem more realistic but it also adds more depth and more of a backstory to this particular novel.

 In every Daniel X story we see action and adventure, however sometimes it can get a bit repetitive, just like the last few books we see Patterson advance his story by adding more danger to his stories, every new chapter is meant to be more thrilling and quicker. This does make the story enthralling at times but personally I think that James Patterson really needs to slow his story down and add quality not just quantity to his books.

  This is because if you make each new book appear like it's the most dangerous one then looking back through the series the first few books don't seem as relevant because hey have been surpassed by new reads. For now though for this review, it's game over!...

Fever Crumb - Philip Reeve

Philip Reeve is highly acclaimed for his book, Mortal Engines which is a futuristic steam-punk book with moving cities and flying airships. This book is much the same however it takes place on the ground which is obviously less exciting, it also takes place in London, unlike Mortal Engines.    The book is set before Reeve's first steam-punk novel and is supposed to link to events in Mortal Engines however I can't see too many of these links and the only real one is at the end. (and it's not that great to be honest) The book seems to be quite historical because it seems as though we are in the past, but we are actually in the future which is a bit surreal and strange. Reading about carts being pulled around London and archaeologists trying to use 'old tech', things like vacuum cleaners for example is just plain weird.    The story often seems to have no real destination and somethings in the book are made out to be a bigger deal than they actually are, for example…

Skulduggery Pleasant: The Dying of the Light - Derek Landy

This was a little of a disappointment in some ways, the ending chapters were a bit confusing but that didn't stop the read from being utterly compelling in every way!
  I would say that a different ending would have worked well but the starting potential of the book maybe created a sense that the read would be ore than it was...

9/10 Good things for comments. Good things also for tweets to @TheOllyBookBlog

Sophie Someone - Hayley Long

This book is very unique and is written in an unusual but fun way. It follows the story of a girl called Sophie who really wants to know what her true identity is and what her story began like. The book is written from Sophie's perspective, however, the book is written in code which makes the story extra interesting and very engaging for the reader. Working out some of the more difficult words is actually quite fun and it does make the entire reading experience more interactive and also better as a whole.
  I think that the book is very good although it can be fairly confusing to being with and at first you often ask questions that only get answered later on in the novel because unlike some books where you see the story from the outside, and therefore are privy to information before it is passed on to the main characters, you follow Sophie and get to know the facts when she does.

8 / 10 A good mysterious, unique, fun and very Belgian book. Add your thoughts in the comments if yo…
