what grade they would give the book, they said they would give it a 7 8 7.5 is the verdict here As the kids enjoyed the adventure, I would recommend this to any Tween Cosmic Aviators is an epic book that follows the adventures of Nathaniel, a 12 year old boy who travels through time in a story that will keep you near the edge of your seat One of the first things that I noticed about this book is

that will keep you near the edge of your seat One of the first things that I noticed about this book is that it was a bit difficult to fully understand some of the language and I had to look up the definition for some words Apparently these words are commonly used throughout the United Kingdom, but I struggled to relate to the way the characters were talking to one another because of cultural differences Other than the differences in language, I have to strongly agree with previous Goodreads reviews about this book that discuss how this book perpetuates negative stereotypes During one of the fighting scenes, the main female character loses focus because of her romantic feelings and additionally begins to cry when she gets injured I strongly believe they should not have included these detailed parts of the story because this suggest that females are not as physically or mentally strong as men, which is clearly not true I was very happy to win this book through the Goodreads giveaways and was really looking forward to reading it The characters in this book were very appealing and the story was not bad I think some young people would enjoy the basic storyline.Unfortunately, I had some problems with the writing Some of those may come down to cultural differences and my not being familiar with how teenagers in the UK talk But the language would often be hard for kids in the US to relate to.When I began the boo I was very happy to win this book through the Goodreads giveaways and was really looking forward to reading it The characters in this book were very appealing and the story was not bad I think some young people would enjoy the basic storyline.Unfortunately, I had some problems with the writing Some of those may come down to cultural differences and my not being familiar with how teenagers in the UK talk But the language would often be hard for kids in the US to relate to.When I began the book, I was a bit confused because what is called the Introduction is actually a synopsis of the book So, I was not clear that these things in the introduction had not yet happened but that I would be reading about them.One of the issues was the fact that the main characters were constantly referred to as children though they are saving the world Perhaps calling them young adults or young heroes or kids would have seemed less condescending.Also, some things were described using the same term repeatedly so you felt like you were being beaten over the head with the concept For example when they talk about the bike, they call it a powerful machine over and over again Some of the language in this book is much too sophisticated for American kids Many of them will have trouble reading the words, let alone knowing their meaning.Sometimes, there was too much information These are 12 year old children but the description of their romantic attraction was much too sophisticated for a tween book or romance.I also had problems with the depiction of the female lead She is suppose to be saving the world, but when she gets hurt, she cries That is a stereotype that we need to end I would have rather had the boy injured and see him cry Also, when they are in a fight for their lives, the girl loses focus because of her romantic feelings Another poor stereotype to be promoting.I had some problems with the time travel back to the year 1068 When Sebastian suddenly appears in 1068, there does not seem to be any surprise on the part of the people in 1068 or language differences between the time periods The language used by the king and the jester do not sound like the language used during that time period and they seem to have no problem with Sebastian s turn of phrase The word jester also seemed to be over used, when by then we were aware he was a jester.Yet for all the times the writing is way too detailed and repetitive, when the hero gets sent through a portal to another time period, suddenly, we are not with him and nothing is said about that except that he was there and was rescued I would have taken out the repetition and written a scene or two about his trip.Because I did find the characters likable and the story interesting, I gave it three stars I would like to see Nathaniel go onadventures but I do hope that an editor is used in future volumes to help keep the writingon track with the story and eliminate some of the repetition The story starts with Nathaniel Ravenscroft, the 12 year old hero, enjoying a bike ride with his friend Tyler, playing children s fantasy games, griping about how mundane their life in small town Littlehampton is, and, as with all great children s fiction, unaware of the fantastic adventures he will face ahead Neilson introduces the main protagonist early which nicely sets the tone for the remainder of the book The heroes and villains are easily accessible Nathaniel is a likable young man, sm The story starts with Nathaniel Ravenscroft, the 12 year old hero, enjoying a bike ride with his friend Tyler, playing children s fantasy games, griping about how mundane their life in small town Littlehampton is, and, as with all great children s fiction, unaware of the fantastic adventures he will face ahead Neilson introduces the main protagonist early which nicely sets the tone for the remainder of the book The heroes and villains are easily accessible Nathaniel is a likable young man, smart and sporty who obviously cares for his physically weaker, bookish friend Tyler, nicely highlighted by the banter the two share in the early chapters probably the most endearing character relationship in the book The supporting cast all help to build Nathaniel s character and the story, Professor Ravenscroft, the Archetypal Absent Minded Professor, the Evil Uncle Sebastian and, of course, Ruben and Octavia, the Cosmic Aviators of the title The main cosmic story arc is enjoyable, without being overly complicated and Neilson displays a talent for understanding what young readers will find exciting The two worlds, one ordinary and one fantastical has obviously been used before in children s fiction, but very rarely in a Science Fiction setting, and I have to admit it works What could have easily been a generic Fantasy, with Wizards and Elves is transformed into an action adventure perfect for a generation growing up with Star Wars and Doctor Who I particularly liked the boys mistaking the aliens as witches and their weapons for wands, a nice little twist that marks this book apart from others of the same genre Neilson s writing style is fluid, with an obvious affection for the characters, which pulls the reader into the story The most enjoyable aspect of the book is the authors understanding of how to set an adventure that will keep the younger reader hooked The pace is perfect, allowing time for the characters to define themselves, but with the action building slowly to keep the reader s attention Neilson does not patronise her target audience with overly simplistic language, a trap that too many Children s Authors fall into, but writes with a rare acknowledgment of the language skills of the young There may be times when some readers will need to ask the meaning of a word, but anything that increases a child s vocabulary can only be a good thing Overall, the book is challenging, but not overly so as to be off putting It s a great adventure story, entertaining, well thought out and will keep its readers turning the page to see what happens next As this is listed as Nathaniel s first adventure, I really do hope we seeof his escapades in the forth dimension in the future This book has the makings of a fantastic series,please
