Why Even Try The next Harry Houdini The greatest escapologist in the past 10 years The boy wizard Max Cassidy has been described as all of those things but he has a blemish on his reputation His mom is in jail for the next 18 years for the murder of his father Only Max his mother and Consuela the Cassidy family aide know that his mother never killed his father This takes place in Paul Adam s novel Max Cassidy Escape From Shadow Island The story begins in modern day London when Max an escape artist just like his father is told by a strange man that he believes his father is alive The man presents Max a slip of paper with the digits 11138352 Before he can offer an further explanation the man is murdered Two weeks later Max and Consuela head to the small Caribbean country of Santo Domingo the sight of Alex Cassidy Max s father s last show Santo Domingo has one of the most crooked justice systems in the world This fact leads Max to consider the possibility that his mother may be innocent The tiny country is given a sense of foreboding by the sinister Isla de Sombra Shadow Island a castle once used by pirates and now the base of a wealthy American businessman As soon as Max lays eyes on it he is sure he will have to go there to find out about his father Will his hunch prove correct and will he be able to find out if his father is alive and prove his mother innocent Read this book to find out Max Cassidy Escape From Shadow Island is an extremely engrossing book because it is sprinkled with humor at exactly the right moments almost the entire book has an air of suspense hanging over it and it is filled with action that keeps you on the edge of your seat The fact that Escape From Shadow Island is an extremely engaging book can be seen by the humor that is sprinkled throughout the book at exactly the right times When Julius Clark the owner of Shadow Island is uestioning Max because he caught him trespassing onto Shadow Island the boy responds with sarcastic and hilarious answers to let Clark know that he doesn t frighten him One such tidbit of conversation goes like this Do you know who I am Max uestions Clark The Pillsbury Dough Boy with glasses Max responds without hesitation Clark ignores the comment and asks How did you get in here Max I put on my red cape and flew 232 He retorts The humor sprinkled throughout the novel lets the reader know that Max isn t worried about his abilities and never lets on about his level of anxiety However the author knows when to hold back from being funny because the mood of the story calls for something different This understanding of when to use humor and when not to takes the reader into exactly the right state of mind and leaves you unable to put the book down Secondly the reader will also be pulled into this extremely entrancing book because of the air of suspense it has throughout the entire story In fact the book starts off with Max declaring to the audience watching his escape show I am going to do a trick no one has ever attempted in the past 50 years There is a reason no one has ever attempted this trick in the last 5 decades It is uite possibly the most dangerous escape anyone has ever tried 1 This uote starts the book off on a suspenseful tone Max is going to do something that hasn t been done You wonder incredulously but he s only 14 Then you begin to wonder what this trick is and why it is so dangerous Next you think How in the world is a 14 year old boy going to complete the most dangerous escape ever one that hasn t been tried in the past 50 years The book starts off in that way and never strays from it Another moment of riveting suspense occurs when Santo Domingan police locks Max in a hotel only hours away from being executed If these examples don t leave you wanting to know what happens next nothing will This entire book is perfectly suspenseful Finally the novel is thoroughly engrossing because it is action packed Max is constantly being pursued by either crooked policemen soldiers or any other menacing group that he stands to hurt by proving his mother s innocence and finding if his father is alive or not For example after Max has broken out of the hotel where the local police had held him hostage he must escape through the twisting streets of the village He comes face to face with a police officer Max realizes that he can t overpower the larger man so he turns around and runs the other way Soon the pursuit turns into a deadly game of tag with danger at every turn in an unfamiliar city This excitement leaves your heart pumping wondering how Max can outsmart his pursuers and live to see another day in this foreboding city The excitement pulls you into the book and doesn t let you go until the final words In closing Max Cassidy Escape From Shadow Island is an extremely engrossing book because it is sprinkled with humor at exactly the right moments almost the entire book has an air of suspense hanging over it and finally it is filled with action that keeps you on the edge of your seat I can connect to this book because Max is really a funny and sarcastic person He s especially sarcastic when he feels uneasy or doesn t have much confidence in himself I do that a lot too It s like trying to cover up your doubts with being funny But I also use sarcasm and jokes in situations when I m not worried about something It s just who I am Max also does that so it s really easy to connect to him and the book in that way From this book I learned several things One of those things that I stated earlier was that sometimes the best humor is knowing when not to be funny I also learned how suspense makes any book better because it leaves you wondering what will happen as well as hoping everything turns out fine in the end In reflection I worked very hard to do extremely well on this book review Therefore I believe that my grade should show that This particular book review was difficult than some of the other reviews I had done prior to it This was because I tried to do a thesis statement that didn t have to do with theme because I wanted to have some variety on my reviews However once I figured out my thesis statement the review became considerably easier than I thought it would be I think that while I did a very good job on this assignment I could definitely continue to improve upon my conclusion I also felt that I could have tightened up my introductory paragraph at least by a few sentences This was a very well written book and I would give it a solid four out of five stars Any one looking for excitement and suspense should read this book
