This was a really engaging book, and I liked it tons. The characters were so realistic, and Albert was one of my favorites. OK, it was kind of weird about how magic, science and aliens were all combined, but it was still interesting and very cool. I'd recommend this book to anyone. For me, the only unsatasfying part was the ending. How can Bruce Coville write such a great story, only to leave the ending in a cliffhanger!? There definately should be a sequel. Wait, let me rephrase that. There definately should be more than one sequel. All in all, though, if you find it in a library or bookstore, GET IT!!!

What was this author thinking? He tried WAY too hard to cram science fiction, monsters, mystery, suspense, and adventure in between two covers, which is almost utterly imposssible. I don't know what he was trying to pull off...but whatever it was, he failed, only coming out with a terrible, utterly boring, confusing, strange, weird, Harry-Potter wanna-be book.

I got this book from the book fair at my school. Once I read the first page I was totaly hooked to the book. This is one of my favorite books in all time. This is not like some of those books that are long a boring this is a book with a great story and plot to it.I would give this book to anybody for a good gift!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found that the beginning of the book was well developed and it drew me into the plot slowly and got me interested. I like the way that a mystery person handed Sarah the box containing the box. I could also picture the statue¿s fleshy hand moving and grasping. I loved the description of the endless hallway in the manor. It seemed like the manor was another world in itself, like a passage between worlds. I could picture the laboratory and the transformation was very vivid and I could see it in my head like I was there. The first world they went to was a scene I really loved. It seemed so different and strange, but at the same time it felt like I could step into the world. Traveling to the afterlife was another well-depicted scene and I saw a new view to the ¿waiting room¿. The ¿caretaker¿ there was described so well. Another highlight of the novel was when Grandpa and Anthony shared the same body, which brought in Grandpa¿s character into play. Those were all things that I enjoyed about the novel but I also have some negative comments on my novel. The end of the novel was disappointing it ended so abruptly. Martin wasn¿t rescued and it left me with a hunger for more. I don¿t think that Anthony controlling the body was enough to scare the flinduvians away. I wanted them to attack and wanted the hero to rebel and fight back, not physically but with a clever strategy. The short chapter following Martin¿s unexpected choice to stay behind started with ¿It¿s been a year now¿¿, and I hate to see a good novel wasted like that. Overall I found the book to have a great beginning/lead/introduction, which lead nicely into the middle/central conflict of the novel. But the ending proved to be quite dissatisfying.

I loved this book. I didn't stop reading it until it was finished. I can't wait to read something else by this author.
