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.

Definetly not the best, but it gives us a view of other worlds.

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.
