I will never not give a "Choose Your Own Adventure" story less than 5 stars. It may be more than 20 years since I read them, but I remembered right away how fun they are. In my first two storylines, my choices lead me to death by airplane crash and then death by airplane explosion, aided by an enemy rocket. But that only made me more determined to finish my own spy mission successfully. Updated in 2005, Beyond Escape has twists and fun turns (aliens?! ah, what now?!) and the suspense of finding ...more

I forgot how fun these books were to read. I loved them when I was a kid. I didn't last very long, though. I had to try a second time and only got a little bit further.

This is my first read of these books since I was a teen. Now getting my little one to read them. Man I forgot how fun these books make reading. This book was set in 2051 not that far in the future. Good read and makes you think how the world/US will be in only 39 more years, lol. Good luck to us all.

Old book smell mixed with a dangerous self-imposed futuristic journey... What more could a ten year old have asked for?
