A twisted maze needs wings
Rick is a fourteen year old boy who seems to have nothing go the way he wants it to. Rick has been to numerous foster homes after his grandmother died, and he gets thrown in a juvenile detention center when he releases his anger on a stop sign. Almost through his sentence, Rick escapes juvenile detention and steals a man named Lon¿s truck. Lon catches Rick, but ends up turning into one of Rick¿s only friends. Lon is a government bird watcher, and while Rick and Lon spend time watching the birds, a mysterious scheme is going on in the desert right under their noses. Will Rick and Lon save the day? You¿ll have to find out. I overall liked the book very well. There wasn¿t anything wrong with it and the storyline was great. I¿m not the biggest reader though, and I got tired of reading a two hundred fifty page book. This novel is not part of a series, which I personally think is a bad thing, because I wouldn¿t mind reading another book that is similar to this one. Also, this book may not remind me of any other books or television shows, but it is a great book. I also believe that Will Hobbs is a fantastic author and I have been reading and enjoying his books all year long. If I would have to make a suggestion to all the people that love Gary Paulsen¿s work, but you are starting to outgrow his reading level, read a Will Hobbs book because he is the Gary Paulsen of the older teenage generationWas this review helpful?

It's ok, give it a chance
I think this book was ok. It got me interested. The best part was towards the end when Rick makes a magnificent flight on a hang glider in the middle of a bad storm. The worst part was when Rick was escaping a youth detention center. I didnt like how it went through time so quikly. It would be talking about them being in a meadow, and the next page it would be a day later in their camp site. I would reccommend this book. I'm glad i gave this book a chance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Wonderful Selection Of Literature
The Maze was a great action packed book! I really enjoyed the real life experiences thrown in so strategically. Will Hobbs really used creativity in linking all of the characters together through personal relationships and background. The only part of this book that I disliked was how quickly the book wrapped up and concluded. If you like action, outdoors, and some suspense, I would highly recommend this wonderful piece of literature.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Wonderful Maze
My name is Derek and I really enjoyed this book. I was very entertained and was caught in the suspense while reading this novel. I would also call this book a great learning experience. As you read on you learn all about gigantic birds called Condors. When you have learned some information, you get pulled into learning more, just as the main character Rick does. This isa book that you won't put down or keep on the shelf for long.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
