5.0 out of 5 stars Itch. - Calls for Early Nights for More Reading Time, 23 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Itch (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Itch finds the rock that no one else could and the amount of trouble it brings ...... More than enough to fill any teenage boy (or one over 10). Not going to tell how or that would spoil the book, but he does get into a heap of trouble and possible danger .... Chemistry.

Had a quick look through it myself and was somewhat impressed with what Simon Mayo has come up with, a book that would appeal to most over the age of 10.

Itch the main character is fourteen and is not your typical teenager, bored with computer games and the usual things teenagers do. Yes, he is a geek, but one that finds a rock compound that hasn't been found before. Lots of chemistry make ups, some of which I didn't understand but our youngest got.

He found it to be an entertaining read, but did keep asking who was 'Simon Mayo'. Yes, us adults know him but not as being an author of a book like "Itch".

Just look out for the main villain in it, one to be reckoned with according to our son,

A nice thick book to keep your child amused, it worked in our house, early nights just for the reading of "Itch".

I'm an adult (50 years old) and I've never heard of "Simon Mayo".

Hi Ian

Simon Mayo, well I am slightly younger than yourself but I certainly remember him being on the radio. Maybe you probably didn't listen to the station he was on then, as not always to everyone's liking the music and that as everyone is different in their music tastes.

Now you can hear him on Radio Two 'Drive Time' which helps pass the time on a long journey, well at least keeps you awake. Must admit it is quite a good station. Must be an age thing and liking Radio Two as I have heard that quite a few 40 plus people listen to it.

I never ever listen to the radio! Not ever. I'm afraid I've never heard of most celebrities. Only heard of someone like Simon Cowel because someone said I look like him! lol
