This book was really hard and a lot of decisions had to be made. Almost all the time it led me into the trap and it was either getting called off of the mission or to be killed. I never got to go to Atlantis but i tried as much as I could’ve the good thing was, was that if you really get lucky you could go to Atlantis I couldn’t but I could’ve cheated and I didn’t but if your lucky enough you might get their

In a Return to Atlantis, I also got to return to my childhood. As part of the Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge, I *had* to pick up one of these titles from the library. I actually chose three to bring home so that I could let my kiddos Choose Their Own Adventure as well. We went to space, were abducted by ant people, and dove beneath the sea. Sometimes we died, sometimes we saved the world, and mostly we had a great time. The books themselves are not nearly as exciting as I remember them being ...more

The story in this one was so so. Like most of R.A. Montgomery's books the techno-babel and heavy handed moral messages kind of drove me nuts as an adult, but my kid was into it.

What dropped this from a three to a two star rating for us was how bad the story/page lay out was. I've read a good mix of older and newer editions and never noticed one this bad but MAYBE it's just because of how old it. But the first choice isn't actually till seven pages in (the longest I've seen). That alone wouldn't

Ah, Choose Your Own Adventure, that paper bridge between that 5th grade fantasy map (see my Hobbit review) and my life-changing discovery of Dungeons & Dragons in the 7th grade.

Some of them were great, some punishing, some arbitrary, but they revealed to me for the first time that I could make choices and that they had immediate effect the course on my (fictional) reality. For a kid whose home life felt largely hopeless and inescapable, the empowerment of making my own way by the power of my

Choose Your Own Adventure: Return To Atlantis by, R.A Montgomery was an amazing book. I love the Choose Your Own Adventure books because the author lets you choose how the book ends. This book is one of the many great Choose Your Own Adventure books. Something that I also like about the Choose Your Own Adventure books is that in most of them the main character is you. In this book the author did a great job of describing what the seen was and what the character looked like and what the stuff aro ...more

Recommended to Julie by: my mom
Just gave this to MEM last night to read. We read up to the first decision together, so she could understand the concept. She couldn't wait to tell me how her first pass through ended last night and then gave me the play-by-play this morning. She is also thinking about all the people she knows who would like this book. I bought a lot of them through eBay last plan is to give her a new book every few days this summer.

In the choose your adventure book: Return to Atlantis, the narrator and his friend go down to atlantis for a second time to see how things have changed, but when they finally reach atlantis, they find out there has been an attack and that they (you) must make the biggest choice: stay, go back home, or go to another planet where it is safe. Once you make this choice, you will keep on making more until you die or until you finish safely, so in this book, you decide your own fate.

This is another book that I read as part of our library's book nerd challenge. I used to read these as a kid and loved them. It wasn't quite as fun this time around, but it brought back fun memories.

When I was young, I used to ready every Choose Your Own Adventure or Which Way Book that I could get my hands on. After following the initial course of my decisions, I would go back and read every possible path of decisions. I loved these books.

Another choose your own adventure book, and again Soren went through every possible outcome. He did say this one was not as exciting as the snowman one.

I read what seemed like dozens of these books, though to be honest I can't remember which ones specifically. They were awesome. I hope they still publish them today.
