3.0 out of 5 stars A ton of fun wrapped up in one. 4 Mar. 2011
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
As a huge reader of the fantastical I'm always on the lookout for something new and interesting, so when this title landed I really had to give it a go. I mean, come on there's a huge robot on the cover, it looks really cool and whilst I felt that its meant to be a representation of Gary, the hands are all wrong.

What unfurls within this title is a book of discovery, a story of adventure and a weird metallic symbiotic world of machinations where nature has taken a turn for the weird. It was cleverly written, the lead character is a ton of fun and I suppose that the best way to describe this is Alice in Wonderland/Never Ending Story with Robots. Add to this a whole host of vivid cast members, some loss as well as triumph and back it all up with an epic battle and you know tis going to hit the spot. It will be interesting to see what Daniel comes up with for Code's next adventure.

This promised to be a great adventure - possibly aimed at lonely or bullied kids to lose themselves in which is good. Starts off very readable and exciting though for Readers of any age - but like a few others I've read recently, really becomes more for the much younger child as it progresses. It's a real shame, as I felt the story had real potential for all ages until a few chapters in, hence I didn't quite finish it...

This is the same book as "A boy and his BOT" with a different title... very confusing. Make sure you don't end up buying it again!
