I bought this book for my little sister (age 11) who really LOVED it. I've just finished reading it myself (I'm 22!), and I loved it too. I know it's a cliche, but this book really will make you laugh and make you cry. The characters will stay with you long after you put the book down. This is a truly touching book for children of all ages.

I absolutely loved Freak the Mighty. It's a cliche, but it realy did make me laugh out loud and then cry. The relationship between Freak and Max was engaging and entertaining - I especially loved the way Freak talked about his illness to Max, and the imaginary adventures they go on.

My nephew and I read this book together, we laughed, we cried, we didn't want it to end. This is a wonderful book for boys, the level of honesty is sometimes hurtful but necessary for the story to be so touching. This is my 4th purchase for a 4th nephew/friend!

My mom is a teacher,and for years she tried to get me to read this book.However,I'd heard it was kind of sad ,and I don't really like sad books.Finally,I decided to read it,and I was pleasantly surprised.Not only was it interesting,poignant,and thought-provoking,but hilarious,too.I have also read the sequel,Max the Mighty, and found it just as excellent.I am now eagerly waiting to see the movie.I recommend this book to absolutely anyone who likes reading,and if you don't like to read,you will after reading this book.

I am currently studying to be an english teacher, and came across this book while doing an independent project for my literature class. I thought it was a very spirited novel that made me smile and cry, at the same time. There are so many themes in this novel, and more than one lesson to be learned. It is a great book to use in the classroom, and Max's character is identifiable with the loners of the school or the kids who tend to be less outgoing and less noticed. The way a child's disability is dealt with is also a good lesson for students, and of course the issue of dealing with a friend's death is present in this novel as well. It is hard for students to understand why kids their age have terminal illnesses and this book helps them to prepare for that in some way, as well as helping them to overcome their fears and unanswered questions concerning death. There is so much to be said about this work of literature but I do not have the space to say it. I think everyone should read it, especially english teachers so that they can teach it in their classes. I can only hope the movie is half as enjoyable!

I think Freak the Mighty was a very enjoyable book. There were both funny and scary parts full of suspense. It is good because it is not about popular kids, it is about 2 kids that get bullied and made fun of. It is a weird and wonderful journey of friendship. By the end of the book I realised every kid should have the chance to be happy whatever their circimstances. I am really glad I chose this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is inspiring to adolescent students because it encourages them to accept indvidual differences among their peers. It is a heart-warming, endearing story with characters young people can understand.
The adventures that Kevin and Max experience keep the students on the edge of their seats. They beg to read more and don't want to put the book down.

This is a fabulous book. A rite of passage through school and life for anyone who feel they don't fit into a so called 'normal' square peg and those who do. This would be a fantastic book for GCSE level and YR.6 upwards. A heart warming story, funny and sad which will not fail to stir emotions. Get it. Read the book first then get the DVD called 'The Mighty'which is equally good.
