Other Worlds Reviews

    Wait....what?

    Is this a hoax? Is it real? Rick hasn't said ANYTHING about this on his blog (that I've seen), and I check it regularly....

    Huh????

    *UPDATE: READ*

    Yeah, it's real! It's a short story in a collection of short stories by different authors. Very fun.

    Short story collections are usually hard to get students to check out, but this series sells itself with the prominent "Guys Read" logo. The first three volumes are always checked out, but I do find these hard to review. I wish that the introduction to this had included the term "speculative fiction", since that's what we are using instead of "science fiction and fantasy" for the Cybils this year! Both types are represented here-- we have science fiction stories from D.J. MacHale, Eric Nylund, R

    Short story collections are usually hard to get students to check out, but this series sells itself with the prominent "Guys Read" logo. The first three volumes are always checked out, but I do find these hard to review. I wish that the introduction to this had included the term "speculative fiction", since that's what we are using instead of "science fiction and fantasy" for the Cybils this year! Both types are represented here-- we have science fiction stories from D.J. MacHale, Eric Nylund, Rebecca Stead and Tom Angleberger, a medieval fantasy from Shannon Hale, and mythology in the form of a Percy Jackson story from Rick Riordan. Tom Angleberger contributes a funny sci fi piece, and Kenneth Oppel has quite a good ghost story. I wasn't quite sure what to make of Shaun Tan's illustrated offering. The inclusion of Bradbury's Frost and Fire was nice, but not the best fit with the other pieces. Must say that Surly Teen Boy thought this was about the best story, which confirms my feeling that it might have been better placed in an anthology for older readers. The absolute stand out story, however, was Neal Shusterman's The Dirt on Our Shoes which sucked me right in and spun me around with its devastating twist. STB and I discussed whether this had enough meat to be expanded into a novel length book but concluded it did not-- as a short story, it had enough merit to be included as a speculative fiction offering in text books. Very well done.

    This is a short book about a quest Apollo gave Percy and Grover..

    Since the series began, I’ve been keeping an eye on the Guys Read books. In theory, it’s a great idea, because more boys should be reading for fun. However, by marketing them as “guy” books, girls are being excluded and it’s continuing the idea that books are gendered. This story is ONLY for girls, and this one is ONLY for boys. As a concept, that needs to die, as it’s based on the sexist values inculcated in our society. They’re clearly making some effort to mold young minds in a good way, base

    Since the series began, I’ve been keeping an eye on the Guys Read books. In theory, it’s a great idea, because more boys should be reading for fun. However, by marketing them as “guy” books, girls are being excluded and it’s continuing the idea that books are gendered. This story is ONLY for girls, and this one is ONLY for boys. As a concept, that needs to die, as it’s based on the sexist values inculcated in our society. They’re clearly making some effort to mold young minds in a good way, based on the inclusion of two female authors and one female MC, but the name itself is still troublesome. Shelving this, though, Guys Read: Other Worlds is a collection of fast-paced stories that will appeal to reluctant young readers, of either gender.
