    This book definitely had its moments but it set you up for a sequel that never happened. It left too many loose ends. This is written for the teen/pre-teen age group so I had to roll my eyes in many parts. It was an okay book but the lack of a sequel or one more chapter to tie things up makes me give it only a cautious recommendation.

    Read this when I was a kid in the 90's and I remembered liking it so we got it to listen to on our Thanksgiving road trip that we just finished. I had forgotten most of it, so it was fun to listen to again. It was pretty jarring when one of the characters mentioned his ipod, and then 9/11. I know I forgot a lot, but there is no way those thing were in the book I read back in the 90's. After reading other reviews here it seems the book has been updated by the author.

I know I forgot a lot, but there is no way those thing were in the book I read back in the 90's. After reading other reviews here it seems the book has been updated by the author. Part of me is glad, but part of me thinks that's too bad because in 2014 it still sounds out of date: nobody has a cell phone, it's not Raging Waters anymore it's 7 Peaks, and the internet is not mentioned at all (to name a few things). He probably could have just left it as it was and the kids could have had fun asking their parents about all the 90's cultural references. Maybe he updated more than just the cultural references though? I just don't remember the original well enough. Oh well, the story was still fun either way. Like other books in this genre geared at this age group, you have to not worry about some details (I'm thinking of Michael Vey). My boys ate it up and it kept my wife and I awake for the long drive too.

    This book is another I tried to encourage my teens to read. So far, that hasn't happened, but I enjoyed reading it. It's about a boy whose family has recently gone through a divorce who has moved to West Valley with his mom. He works through his personal problems and tries to "fix" everything with the help of a recluse neighbor and his inventions. I was quite enetertained, and it was less predictable than I thought it would be.

Unfortunately, my boys haven't picked it up yet, but if and when they do, there will be some great conversation items in this book. Some topics we could disucss are: using technology for selfish purposes, the power of our thoughts, lust vs. love, how substances can block our ability to feel, and how a higher power can help us triumph over outside influences as well as internal conflict.

    I also grew up listening to the author read this book on tape during trips (along with his other tennis shoes among the nephites books). He does a great job, and I couldn't help but assign the characters his voices he used while I read it on my kids now. It was a great book, and I hear the author would like to do a sequel (I hope he does it, I would love to see how he carry's on the characters story).

The only issue I had with the story was probably the nonsense in vegas (seemed pointless and didn't help the story and should have either been re-edited to tighten it up, or removed entirely). Overall though, don't let that stop you from reading this great book.

    This is an update to my last review. I wasn't quite finished with the book when I wrote the last review. The book starts out strong and catches your interest. It gets you to really like the characters and then a couple of chapters from the end it "wets the bed". The ending doesn't make any sense at all. If this is how all of this authors books go I'm glad I've never read any of them and I don't intend on reading any of them. This book turned out to be a turkey!!!

    I remember listening to this book on tape while going on a family vacation. Yes, I said tape, not CD. So, I thought I would read it, to see if it was as good as I remembered. I wasn't aware that I had bought an "updated" version, until all of a sudden it mentions 9/11, Wii, and XBOX. I do have to agree with someone's comment about the fact that he wouldn't have been able to board a plane with something metal strapped under his jacket. But other than that, it is still a good book, and still enjoy I remember listening to this book on tape while going on a family vacation. Yes, I said tape, not CD.

    I just had fun with this book because the "sick old man" and his wife are actually my parents. They lived in Chris's neighborhood and he just added them to his story. They loved it! My teenage kids have really enjoyed it, and it's being released again as an updated version. Pretty fun for the kids... of all ages.

    Came across this book last week and remembered that I had read it years and years ago. I only remember the plot vaguely--something about a misfit kid in high school who is assigned to home teach a seriously burned/disfigured man who happens to be a super genius that invents some jacket that allows the main character to time travel.

    This book was frustrating to me. It is so obviously going to be the first book in a series. By the end I was just as confused and had just as many unanswered questions as I did in the beginning. It does not stand alone very well. I suggest waiting till the whole series is out and then reading them all together.

    Really, would it be that hard to look up the difference between nuclear fusion and fission? Especially given that the second main character is a super-genius physicist? And, maybe it should have been left in the 90's... or at least updated better. Who's gonna believe that he can board an airplane in 2008 wearing a metal jacket under his shirt?

    This book was my favorite book by Chris Heimerdinger. I think I liked it because it was not about traveling back in time, but about stopping time.. which is a little different than the regular tennis shoes books. Plus it all takes place now, rather than in the past. It was an exciting, easy read.

    I remember laughing a lot while listening to this book on tape. It's completely independent of the "tennis shoes" books where the kids go back into the Book of Mormon. Guess I'll have to listen to it again when I need a good laugh. (How about now?) I remember laughing a lot while listening to this book on tape.

    I really didn't like this book. I really didn't get the storyline as anything other than a set-up for more novels instead of being good on its own. The premise of a kid being given scientific marvels could have been good, but it got caught somewhere in just plain nonsense. I really didn't like this book.

    I really liked this book. It was another great book by Chris Heimerdinger. It's been a few months since I finished it, but I think I remember wanting the ending to be different. Seems like that is the case a lot of the time. Still a good book. Recommend it. I really liked this book. It was another great book by Chris Heimerdinger.

    The first novel I read by an LDS author, I read this in seventh grade and really loved the idea and plot of the story. There were some parts that were a little predictable, or that were a bit too unbelievable, but all together a great story.
