Public Enemies By: Gordon Korman ¿Run!¿ that¿s all the Falconer kids could think was ¿Run!¿ In this story Aiden and Meg Falconer are running from the law to prove their parents innocents. They need to go to Denver, because there is some important evidence that could save their parents. After having to deal with cops and a mysterious killer known as ¿Hairless Joe¿, they were saved by the ¿Mouth of America¿. I really didn¿t like this book. One reason I didn¿t like this book was the part with the goose. The author should have put in a dog instead. The dog would have added more action and suspense. Also, if a dog was substituted for the goose then maybe someone would have gotten hurt which would have added to the drama. Another thing I didn¿t like about the story was when Aiden and Meg hid in the bathrooms in the library. They should have hid under the desks which would have added to the suspense. Instead of hiding in the bathroom and falling asleep on the toilets they should have slept between the food machines in case someone realized they were in the bathroom everyday. I don¿t even know how anyone can fall asleep on a toilet anyway. The one think I did like about the book was the Oznot guy. It was good that the author added a guy who could not talk. It added to the disparity of the story. Only he should have been a red herring instead of helping Aiden and Meg. Again, I wouldn¿t recommend this book to many people. The thing I disliked the most was the part where Aiden and Meg almost got thrown down the elevator shaft. Instead of Meg getting out of ¿Hairless Joes¿ death grip, someone should have knocked ¿hairless Joe¿ out. Also, it was weird how Meg escaped from ¿Hairless Joe¿. The author could have also made ¿Hairless Joe¿ slip on the floor he was polishing. Critiqued By: J FisherWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

gordon korman is losing his touch
yeah, see, he was really funny up until recently. like 'i wanna go home' and 'the twinkie squad', 'bugs potter', the bruno and boots series. but then he tried to write seriously and the point is he's not really an AMAZING writer he was just funny. then after he got serious he tried to be funny again because he realized that being serious wasn't working, only he lost touch with what it's really like to be a kid and the whole dumb series is unbelievable and silly and there's really nothing so funny about any of it and so we see the demise of a once great genius. my 9 and 6 year old siblings agree that they are stupid books they'd much rather read charlie brown or something. you want to read it? get it out of the library. these are not books you'll want to read over and over again.Was this review helpful?
