Listener Opinions

    " This book was written for juvenile readers, as the characters are in the fifth grade, but the maturity levels of the characters and their actions seems better suited for middle-grade readers. In fact, if the setting wasn't an elementary school and it did not give grade levels to the characters, a high-school student may enjoy this book. "

    " This was a great book that had me wondering till the last page i like the style and format that dan Gutman wrote this fantastic book in it like a crime case a mysteery/ realistic fiction book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracie | 2/15/2014

    " Told as interviews with key players, the story of four kids using a homework machine during their fifth-grade year is revealed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skittles | 2/3/2014

    " This book was okay, but i really thnk it's important to do your homework and not lie about it. It was pretty wierd and odd that those four people would stick together like that, because they all have very different personalities. A homework machine is a unique idea but i'm glad they got punished for doing it. I thought it was pretty cool that each chapter, a different person was telling their side of the story. you would enjoy this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lexi | 1/29/2014

    " A very quick read and is more aimed at children in elementary school. Unless you have a lower reading level, you should get through this book very quickly. I enjoyed the plot at the time I read it, and would give this book to kids in elementary (maybe 2-4 grade). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophia | 1/18/2014

    " I like this book because all the kids are so different like a popular a dumb a smarty and a nerd "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Lunsford | 1/14/2014

    " This book was a lot of fun, but it jumps between characters. If you're reading it out loud to a class, this jumping around can be really confusing for them. "

    " Cute. I don't like when books have children calling each other jerks and stupid, but I guess that's just the way it is. I enjoyed the multiple narrative and I think that my students will enjoy the story line. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ann-Marie | 12/19/2013

    " The first time I started reading this, I actually stopped. I didn't like it at all. I was pleasantly surprised this time, that I didn't think it was so bad after all. I'm curious to see if it will be a crowd-pleaser this fall. That's usually the formula: I don't like it=the kids love it. "

    " The Homework Machine was entertaining and funny. Done in a police record format, it stands out a little from most childrens novels. While the plot wasn't best, it was worthing reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 3/23/2013
