5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic YA Mystery/Adventure! 30 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This is a wonderful YA novella. I really enjoyed it!

Luke Farmer is a fantastic character. He is 12 years old, and he is very kind and well mannered. I liked him very much.

This is an exciting young adult novella for children between the ages of 9 and 14. I couldn't put it down! This book is full of danger and adventure, and will keep a young reader engrossed from beginning to end. I liked meeting Luke's friends. They are completely different in temperament, but their differences compliment each other. Bobby Jenkins is a quiet, intelligent young man who is bordering on being a maths genius. Ethan Moore is loud and a bit of a drama queen, but he has a good heart. The story starts off quite slowly, but it soon builds up into a mystery when the boys find a missing phone. The bad guys are not the nicest of people and are quite scary. I loved the chase scenes, because they ramped up my heart beat and I could "see" them quite clearly. I was a little disappointed when I reached the end because I wanted the story to keep going. However, the ending was well rounded and all's well that end's well (as they say).

Chris Martin has written a fast paced mystery adventure full of suspense for children. I loved his writing style and his characters come alive on the page! I look forward to reading more of his books in the future.

I highly recommend this book to both boys and girls aged 9 to 14. However, I also recommend this book to adults who love to read younger YA books. - Lynn Worton

4.0 out of 5 stars A Reasonable Young Adult Thriller 14 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like The Stranger (A Novella), Martin has again managed to pack a detailed mystery with several believable twists into only a few pages.

On their way back from school Luke, Bobby, and Ethan, three twelve-year-old boys, find a mobile phone lying in the park. The phone rings but no one speaks when they answer. Unnerved by a stranger who seems to be searching for the phone they scatter. Over the course of the following hours they discover who is seeking the phone and how far they will go to get it.

While Martin is writing a lighter story than The Stranger, both in feel and plot, the work has the same feeling of being set in a real and complex world.

I found it a difficult in places to engage with the main characters and their concerns; however the feeling of separation was very similar to my experience of reading other stories focussing on young protagonists so I feel this is due to my taste and not a defect in the writing. Indeed - unlike many authors writing about children investigating mysteries - Martin makes the reason they do not involve the police neither absurd nor contrived.

The story is written in a colloquial American English. While much of the dialect faded into the background very quickly a few phrases leapt out, especially Legos instead of LEGO®. Although this did not really damage my immersion it might impact those who prefer British English.

My only real problem with the book was the sub-plot involving Boone, a Golden Retriever Luke finds wandering at the start of the story. Throughout the story there is a feeling that Boone will be significant which does not really play out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Other Side of Night by Chris Martin 8 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Twelve year old Luke Farmer and his two best buddies, Ethan and Bobby spend a lot of time together. They know they can count on each other at any time. It's a good thing too when strange things start happening in the park one day. Luke had been trying to coax a Golden Retriever from the woods for quite awhile and he finally succeeded. Just as he and his "new" dog Boone are getting acquainted his buddies show up. They show Luke a cell phone they phone in the park. While they are looking it over, it rings. It really becomes a mystery after that and the boys have to decide who to trust.

This novella is just right for the boy who likes to read but doesn't have the patience to sit for a long time. It's fun, mysterious, and filled with action most kids will love. I say kids and not just boys because my twelve year old daughter thought it was terrific! The story is well executed and the characters are upstanding young men. Check this one out for the child in your life. You won't regret it.

I found no issues with this one.

I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because it really kept the attention yet seemed to be just the right size for those impatient kids. *smile*
