Extraordinary book about an extraordinary boy. From the top cover to the back you will be fascinated. Wyndham, Heinlein, they definitely come to mind when you read the book. I let you discover why. I was particularly impressed by the reference to 'The Tempest'. It's quite amazing to realize that it is almost an interactive book; I let myself identify with one character. I plan to read 'An Extraordinary Boy' again, identifying to another. How vain of me to want to be Max! I hope Vernon Hewitt is working on part 2 of his story... And I hope he writes fast... I can't wait to read what happens next! I bought 2 more copies; they are gone, already circulating in my circle of friends.
Brilliant read. This book has a different, but very strong storyline. I have read many Sci-fi books and this one is among the best in recent years. The characters are really engaging and interesting. The friendship between Max and Jamie provides a great sub-plot. I would strongly recommend this book to any sci-fi fan.
