    I Also Recommend:

    Scary and funny with fast-paced action.

    The premise of the story is amazing and the computer world of gaming plays an important part. This story is unique and the evil doers are seriously evil. I loved it! Doug and his friend Jamie are nitty-gritty heroes. Their three helpers are totally rad and rude and one of them wants a motorcycle to go with a biker attitude. I read it all in one day because I had to find out what happened. Now, I can't wait for the sequel.

    Page Turner - High speed adventure - must read!!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the fast pace adventure and funny surprises at every page that Joel provides his reader. I found that I had to read the book all the way to the end in one sitting. The robots are particularly cool and the biological weaponry was very clever. If you like action, adventure and sci-fi you will love this book. It was an epic adventure.

    High-speed tech adventure!

    When The Rendering opens, Doug is blogging furiously about what has happened to him. Wrongly accused of killing his Aunt Margaret, his goal is to tell the world what really happened that fateful day. Between fighting off terrifying boidroids, befriending cyberskunk hybrids, and attempting to finish his homework, Doug's story is one high-octane adventure!

    The Rendering is an exciting book for those boys (and girls!) out there who embrace their computer-loving, dorky side. Packed with so much action, there's hardly time to pause and catch your breath. The story is quite a high concept, and there is a lot of science and tech to back it up. Readers will have to be up-to-snuff on their computer tech knowledge if they don't want to feel lost in the action. Doug's friend Jamie is brilliant - the super smart female best friend who's always there to lend him a much-needed hand. I absolutely loved how Joel Naftali played around with font sizes and styles to help emphasize certain parts of the blog. Very creative and a welcomed break from the monotony of blog format. And he wrote Doug's voice with a perfect blend of sarcasm and hilarity. While not my usual cup of tea, I certainly enjoyed the ride.
