    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on another

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on another planet, be attacked by alien warlords, or even be taken over by evil robo-shoes?  This is the book for you! The Guys Read series have collections of short stories by different authors. In this book all of the stories are Sci-Fi (one of my favorite genres). There are ten stories in all and the authors are -
    Tom Angleberger
    Ray Bradbury
    Shannon Hale
    D.J. MacHale
    Eric Nylund
    Kenneth Oppel
    Rick Riordan
    Neal Shusterman
    Rebecca Stead
    Shaun Tan
    with illustrations by Greg Ruth
    Opinion- The stories  in the collection are all written in different styles (which I thought made it really cool). Rick Riordan wrote a new Percy Jackson short story for the book (very cool). I particularly loved Bouncing the Grinning Goat by Shannon Hale because it had a medieval feel to it with swords and mystical powers.  There is even one story by Shaun Tan that is completely graphic and pretty cool. I was introduced to some really great authors that I didn’t know before (Ray Bradbury, Rebecca Stead) that I am planning to read more of their books. Of course, I loved Tom Angleberger’s “Rise of the RoboShoes” and Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo.” Both were funny and were the great stories I expect out of two of my favorite authors.  Because they Guys Read series is a bunch of short stories, they are great to read when you don’t have a lot of time or for kids who are reluctant readers. I think boys will love this book, although I know a lot of girls who are into Sci-Fi too!
    *NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Amazing

    These books were great
    Rick Riordan drew readers in with the Singer of Apollo, and the next story is gret. I recommend this to all ages and people who like action and humor.
