This book is confusing and yet no connection is seemed to be made. I read this book for a school project and was bored with it. I wouldn't recommend this book. Gary Paulsen is ususally very good in his writing but this book was disappointing. 2 stars for me!!

I did not enjoy this book at all. I have read other Gary Paulsen books and liked them, but Sentries was just dissapointing.

Sentries was not a very good book. For one, there was not really a point to the book. Plus, it did not flow well, it told a different story every chapter that don¿t even relate to each other. But worst of all, the ending was awful. It just ended with a ¿Click.¿ Some good things about this book are it¿s a quick and easy read. Also, it shows that even though what stage of life you¿re in or how old you are there are people out there going through something similar. Finally, if you didn¿t like one chapter you might like the next chapter because they change stories.
