I used to love reading Choose Your Own Adventure books when I was a kid. I borrowed them from the school library and from the public library. I couldn't get enough!

So it was awesome to find a few during our thrift store adventures. This is one of them and I had a blast reading it.

Dr. Wogan has designed a machine able to neutralise radiation. That means that everyone could survive a nuclear war. But in the wrong hands, it would mean the world could be held ransom.

As her young assistant it's YOUR

This was a slow book. Even with choosing how things would go, I ended up with my character in a stalemate, which seemed pointless. I'm not sure this one is worth the read.

me gusto, pero no es mi tipo de libro, me gusta que se puedan tomar decisiones, pero la verdad no me gusta como están narrados los libros de elige tu propia aventura en general. Aunque debo admitir que lo disfrute y que sin dudas me tocó un final malo XD
I really love these books. They always take me back to childhood—when I'd make a mistake, pretend I didn't and try to go back and have the best ending. This time I actually had several good endings! Go me! Didn't even have to lie to myself...

This is definitely a bit meh for a choose your own adventure book. I think it's more difficult to get past the multiple dead ends at the beginning and the whole nuclear destruction plotline is a bit bland. Not the best by Montgomery but still fun.

I read this to one ending. I know there are more, and I'll go back to read them at some point. With the ending I read, I know I can't give this book a 5 star rating. I also don't think it could deserve a 4 star rating when it includes this ending. It wasn't an ending. To me, it seemed like just another paragraph long page, but instead of telling you to skip to page X it just said "The End". There wasn't a conclusion, good or bad. I'm hoping other endings conclude the story at least. Maybe it's a ...more

i don't know how many of the possible pathways are required to count these as "read". i remember liking them for a while when i was a kid, but i've not yet had a single student get way into them. i can think of a few students, though, that might like them and need a series around this level.

I found the concept of this type of book interesting, but boy, the writing was extremely simplistic and not at all what I would consider interesting. I realize it's geared toward a young set of readers, but that's no excuse to shortchange them on fun reading!

Extremely simplistic. I read two endings and both left many unanswered questions.
