Cliched characterization, cliched dialogue, cliched imagery, and an aggressive tell-don't-show policy crushed the life out of this story. It's regrettable, because there's something there--the author is a decent writer, better than the average self-published author--but the book needs strong, sharp editing that it didn't get.

For example, one of the main characters is a teacher who wants to be good and engaging, but rules and regulations have ground him down into one of the boring teachers he hat

I quite enjoyed my trip to Nuldoid. Russ Woody has a most intriguing imagination with a good dose of sentimentalism thrown in. The story reminded me in parts of Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl series and I could definitely see other stories about Nuldoid come from Woody. I liked the way he didn't talk down to a YA audience and used some pretty big words. It's good to introduce YA's to vocabulary, especially when the Nuldoid-speak is such a grammatical mess! But by the end of the book I could practica ...more

An AMAZNG book!!! It definitely takes you to another world, all inside our own. The writer does a fantastic job describing the universe the book is set and makes you feel for the characters. I loved the book and definitely put it in my collection as one of the best stories Ive ever read.
