James and Lee, the Great Scare by Gregory James is truly an amazing story. The story takes place 200 hundred years after the destruction of the earth’s surface. People are now living under the surface of the earth in tunnels. James and Lee are brothers who are working on a time machine to take them back in time. They are also the town’s librarians and are the ones people go to when they have problems. The latest string of problems is that several people have had things go missing at 6 PM the same night. James and Lee are called upon to try to find the missing items and people.
This book is an action filled satire. There are so many things I enjoyed about this book. I found myself laughing while reading. One of the things that stands out for me in this book is that those who were trying to save the earth, as we know it today, are the ones that caused the destruction. Another is the things that go missing are the things the people treasured the most. I really enjoyed the part where the author writes about the destruction of the earth’s surface. He goes through the different steps that are taken to use vehicles and pollute the earth the least. At one point hamsters are used to run the cars, until it is discovered the hamsters pollute the earth.
I just loved this book and I feel a lot of others will also enjoy it. With just 186 pages, it is a great book to read to just get lost for an evening.
I received this book from CrossLink Publishing through BookCrash. This is my honest review.
My rating: 5+ stars
