Take it away class:
I really enjoyed WLTGO and think others will too. Very funny and I believe it deserves more than 5 stars. I loved all of the characters and thought over all it was amazing. and really moved me. I loved reading it in class.
I really life this book because it is very hard for me to find a book that I really like. Mao's book is very funny and I love the names of all the characters and how creative Mao's writing is. I think everyone in my class likes this book. When my teacher reads it, he puts on voices for each character so that it comes to life. My favourite character has to be Hermes because he says BOSH and MEGABOSH. This book is MEGABOSH!
I really loved this book and my favourite character was Hermes. The book was mega bosh! It was one of my favourite books. My teacher read it to my class making funny voices. I can't wait to read Simply the Quest and Beyond the Odyssey.
I loved this book. My teacher read it and I quickly fell in love with the characters. My favourite characters have to be Hermes and Virgo. My favourite chapter was in Buckingham Palace. I'm currently reading Simply the Quest!
I absolutely love this book. It's so funny and fascinating. My favourite character is Hermes because he always says 'BOSH' and it's just so funny. This book is so good that I could read it a million times. I totally recommend you buy this book.
I loved this book so much. I couldn't put it down! I highly recommend this book to 8-14 year olds. It has a great message because Elliot's mum has dementia so there is a message to help children who have a relative who has/had dementia. Overall this book was amazing. My favourite character was the Queen and Hermes. This is a Mega Bosh book!
I loved your book and it was so funny. I loved when the intensity got so high. I loved Thanatos but my favourite character was Hermes. I loved when Hermes said BOSH. I thought it was so funny. I can't wait to start reading STQ and I am going to try and finish it by the time the new book comes out. Thanks for reading my review of WLTGO.
I really enjoyed this book. My teacher's voices were so funny. My favourite character was Hermes and this book is Mega Bosh!
My favourite person was Hermes. He was always funny. If you like action and funny books then WLTGO is just for you. It is for all ages! A special thank you to Maz Evans for crafting such an interesting book. If you read it then I'm sure you will feel the same way.
WLTGO is funny, heartfelt and packed with adventure and action. It has Greek Gods, weird Gods and Daemons. It's very exciting. My favourite characters are Elliot, The Queen and Virgo. My teacher makes it funnier with his impressions of the characters. I can't wait for him to read Simply the Quest.
I enjoyed this book because it told you a lot about Greek mythology and it was both funny and adventurous. My favourite character in the book by far is Hermes. He is so hilarious, especially when he will say Bosh. I definitely recommend this book for 8-11 year olds.
I really enjoyed the book. It is a very interesting book for children who love adventures. I love the way the Queen turns into something I wasn't expecting. I won't spoil the surprise. I'm sad I finished the book but can't wait to read STQ. I love when Hermes says BOSH! I'm so excited to read Beyond the Odyssey as these stories take me to the best world.
I would give it millions more stars but unfortunately there is only 5. It was very funny. Virgo was very funny. I loved the book so much. I liked the way Elliot called Patricia Porshley Plum, Mrs Horse's Bum! I recommend STQ and BTO. My favourite character was Aphrodite as she was funny too. We did a thing in class where we pretended to be the characters. I really loved this book. Thanks for reading.
I absolutely love WLTGO. It was a hilarious but heart warming story. My favourite characters were Hermes and Zeus. The reason I chose them is because they are both very funny. WLTGO is always an action packed adventurous story.
I loved everything about it this book. I liked the humour characters, adventure and the Greek Gods like Zeus, Hermes, Athena, Virgo, Thanatos and Elliot. I would (will) absolutely love the new books and hopefully they will be as good as WLTGO. I will love STQ, BTO and...?
I loved the book. It's funny but has a very truthful message. The characters were very good and they all had lots of humour. What I would like for all the books is to have more of Mrs Horses Bum. I am so glad there are another few books on the way. BOSH!
WLTGO is my favourite book. I love all the characters especially Mrs Horse's Bum, Virgo, Zeus and (bosh) Hermes. I loved when Elliot told Boyle to go easy on the mince pies. I loved Hermes at the end. I loved Thanatos, his brother and all the tricks that they played. The scene with Hypnos's guard was so funny. Amazon need 20 stars to rate this book! It is my favourite book for now but STQ will probably be my favourite soon! BOSH!
In WLTGO my favourite character is probably the Queen or Hermes. I give this book a megaBOSH! I would also give this book a million amazon stars! My favourite part was at Buckingham Palace with the Queen. I can't wait to read the 2nd, 3rd and hopefully a 4th!
This book is brilliant and I would recommend it to any book or Greek mythology lovers. This book is MegaBOSH! My favourite character is Hermes as he is so funny and if you read this book then I am sure you will love him too. So for all those people who love Greek mythology, suspicion and having a laugh then this book is for you!
I love all the suspense, comedy and the part with the middle-aged monarch Queen Elizabeth II...Snordlesnot! Maz, please don't stop making hilarious books and make more than 4 for this series. The only reason why I am giving this book 4 1/2 stars is because there are only 3 books, even though this book is ULTRA UBER BOSH!
A hilarious book with lots of twists and amazing description. I would recommend this book to 7-14 year olds. My favourite characters were Sisiphus and Hermes but the best by far was Peagasus. This is the best book I have read in years. If you are reading this review and you are still not convinced to order this book then you better! :)
I loved this book so much because Virgo and Hermes are so funny. I also like Mrs Horse's Bum. There is so much humour and excitement in this book. I can't wait to read STQ and BTO. MEGA BOSH!
I really loved the book. I love all the characters. My favourite character is Hermes. I love that he will always say 'bosh'. It was really funny. It really taught me about the names of Greek Gods. My favourite made up word was Snortlesnot!
I loved WLTGO. It's so funny especially the Buckingham Palace part. There is plenty of humour. I am always filled with shock when this and that happened. The comedy was perfect. In my opinion, Hermes is the best.
Maz Evans, I really liked WLTGO but there were definitely weird bits, like the part at Buckingham Palace! I did really like it though. I liked the part in Thanatos's cave.
I really enjoyed the book because there are so many funny and action packed bits. This book is so hilarious. I burst out laughing on every page. My favourite chapter was when they went to see the Queen but I shall say no more! Last but not least, my favourite person in the book is Hermes because he always says Bosh!
WLTGO is my favourite book I have ever read because it's hilarious, action packed and my favourite character is Hermes because he will always say Bosh! I recommend Simply the Quest.
WLTGO is the funniest book I have ever read. It is action packed, funny and sometimes even sad. This book is wonderfully written and is the perfect book for children like me. It is perfect if you're looking for a good book.
Maz Evans’ debut deals with the harsh reality of a child isolating himself to protect a parent with a mental health illness, and the spiralling issues that it creates with a lightness and humour that foster empathy and hope in equal measure and reminds us of the power of friendship.
With Gods that could have stepped straight off the set of TOWIE, a mix of perfectly timed slapstick and dry wit that works for children and adults alike, this is a riotously funny romp with a heart of gold at its core. Looking forward to the next one already.
Great for fans of David Solomons, M.G. Leonard and all things Greek Mythology.
Who Let The Gods Out? is the debut novel in a quadrilogy. It is written by the utterly brilliant, yet utterly bonkers, Maz Evans. The story centres around Elliot, a young boy who is struggling in school due to his secret second life as young carer to his dementia-suffering mother. Elliott struggles to afford dust, so his whole world is turned upside down when gets a Really Scary Letter saying his house is going to be repossessed. Elliott and his mother will potentially be homeless. What Elliott doesn't anticipate it is that Virgo, a rebellious constellation who has snuck to Earth to feed Ambrosia to the mysterious Prisoner 42, will land with a (very smelly) splat in his cowshed. Together they make a great team. Not. What they actually achieve, is freeing the demon Thanatos and potentially destroying the Earth. Great job guys! Now, with the help of a few Gods, they need to right that wrong. This book is HILARIOUS. I nearly had to go to ASDA after I'd finished to replace my funny bone, as I wore the first one out laughing at this book. From confused train conductors, to lisping demons, via a tremendous showdown between a cunning devil and our reigning Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, there is never a dull moment. If I were you, I would purchase this book instantly. If you're stuck at your desk reading this, quit your job and get to Waterstones. You will not regret it. Maz should be very proud (and slightly concerned) at the brilliant and wonderful way her brain strings stories together. Quite frankly, Amazon need to add a 6th star, as 5 does not suffice for this book.
A review from Mohammed in Year 6:
I would like to review a book called Who Let The Gods Out? People will like this book because it has got sad moments, action and comedy. It's amazing because it has Greek mythology. My favourite character just has to be Sisyphus.
This book is just perfect for children. I teach in key stage two and I am yet to find a class or child that do not adore this book. It's hilarious and very moving, full of wonderful characters and perfect for your best silly-reading-out-loud voices.
