because the mood of the story calls for something different This understanding of when to use humor and when not to takes the reader into exactly the right state of mind and leaves you unable to put the book down Secondly the reader will also be pulled into this extremely entrancing book because of the air of suspense it has throughout the entire story In fact the book starts off with Max declaring to the audience watching his escape show I am going to do a trick no one has ever attempted in the past 50 years There is a reason no one has ever attempted this trick in the last 5 decades It is uite possibly the most dangerous escape anyone has ever tried 1 This uote starts the book off on a suspenseful tone Max is going to do something that hasn t been done You wonder incredulously but he s only 14 Then you begin to wonder what this trick is and why it is so dangerous Next you think How in the world is a 14 year old boy going to complete the most dangerous escape ever one that hasn t been tried in the past 50 years The book starts off in that way and never strays from it Another moment of riveting suspense occurs when Santo Domingan police locks Max in a hotel only hours away from being executed If these examples don t leave you wanting to know what happens next nothing will This entire book is perfectly suspenseful Finally the novel is thoroughly engrossing because it is action packed Max is constantly being pursued by either crooked policemen soldiers or any other menacing group that he stands to hurt by proving his mother s innocence and finding if his father is alive or not For example after Max has broken out of the hotel where the local police had held him hostage he must escape through the twisting streets of the village He comes face to face with a police officer Max realizes that he can t overpower the larger man so he turns around and runs the other way Soon the pursuit turns into a deadly game of tag with danger at every turn in an unfamiliar city This excitement leaves your heart pumping wondering how Max can outsmart his pursuers and live to see another day in this foreboding city The excitement pulls you into the book and doesn t let you go until the final words In closing Max Cassidy Escape From Shadow Island is an extremely engrossing book because it is sprinkled with humor at exactly the right moments almost the entire book has an air of suspense hanging over it and finally it is filled with action that keeps you on the edge of your seat I can connect to this book because Max is really a funny and sarcastic person He s especially sarcastic when he feels uneasy or doesn t have much confidence in himself I do that a lot too It s like trying to cover up your doubts with being funny But I also use sarcasm and jokes in situations when I m not worried about something It s just who I am Max also does that so it s really easy to connect to him and the book in that way From this book I learned several things One of those things that I stated earlier was that sometimes the best humor is knowing when not to be funny I also learned how suspense makes any book better because it leaves you wondering what will happen as well as hoping everything turns out fine in the end In reflection I worked very hard to do extremely well on this book review Therefore I believe that my grade should show that This particular book review was difficult than some of the other reviews I had done prior to it This was because I tried to do a thesis statement that didn t have to do with theme because I wanted to have some variety on my reviews However once I figured out my thesis statement the review became considerably easier than I thought it would be I think that while I did a very good job on this assignment I could definitely continue to improve upon my conclusion I also felt that I could have tightened up my introductory paragraph at least by a few sentences This was a very well written book and I would give it a solid four out of five stars Any one looking for excitement and suspense should read this book

Two years ago and his body has never been found His mother is now serving a life sentence for her husband's murderMax's mission to learn the truth about his family takes him on an thrilling journey from Lond This book feels it is necessary to explain what the definition of implode is and than 20 pages later uses the word soporific without any explanation I don t know if the author thinks he is addressing smart children or dumb adults This thriller revolves around a teenage boy whose father is murdered and his mother is accused of the crime and put in jail This seems to be a common theme this is the second book I ve read this summer with this plot the first is Nothing to Lose by Alex Flinn if you have to choose between the two pick Flinn Of course the boy knows that his mother is innocent and sets out trying to prove this fact The boy age 14 is also an escape artist I mean like Houdini The author also makes up a very corrupt country in Central America called Santo Domingo no relation to the REAL Santo Domingo which is the capital of the Dominican Republic This book is completely unbelievable The dialogue and writing seems dumbed down I realize this is very tempting to do for authors who write for young adults but it should be avoided The best YA authors do not dumb down the material Chronicles of Narnia Hunger Games Harry Potter A Series of Unfortunate Events etc
