    One thought on “Time Bomb”

    1. This book was very good, and it was the best historical book that I've read this year. It dealt with a lot of subjects that I'm interested in, and the book was very good at being entertaining and suspenseful. The author did a very good job of building up the characters and the story lines, and I wish that he would have written more books. One thing that I though he should change was to let Cap live, but it would have been a good book either way.

    2. This work of historical fiction is a very good read. The characters are well developed! Kudos to Nigel Hinton, the author, for being able to put down on paper the thoughts and behaviors of several 11 to 12 year old boys, a misguided teen and several parents, teachers, etc. It's set in London right after WWII.The novel starts and finishes with the secret these 4 boys shared from one summer playing near a bomb site. I was hooked right away and I wanted to keep reading the whole way through. The en [...]

    3. As an avid historical fiction reader, I was very excited to read this book when I saw it at my local library. I found the summary of the plot to be interesting. From a distance, I thought that a book about four young, middle school aged boys after World War II period struggling with disappointments from adults finding an unexploded bomb would make one heck of a great book. And at first, I wasn't disappointed. The beginning was great. I loved how the theme was introduced from the very first piece [...]

    4. Four life-long friends share a secret about the summer of 1949 in England. Andy, Bob, Manny, and Eddie find an unexploded bomb from the war in their favorite stomping ground. As their teenage angst, hostility at adults, and hormones rage, they fantasize about the bomb killing off their 'enemies'. Along comes Cap, an odd, slightly mixed-up young man, who both infuriates them and mesmerizes them with his stories. When Cap belittles Manny, who happens to be Jewish, and locks Bob in an underground p [...]

    5. This made for a great book discussion with lots of parallels between the kids personal lives and the aftermath of World War II. The central theme of trust and keeping secrets was particularly fun to talk about and our middle school students could easily relate to the main character's transition from primary school to secondary school. An excellent choice for historical fiction for students middle school or high school. Clearly demonstrates the lasting impact of war on individuals and families. E [...]

    6. when i was younger i HATED to read and i read this book in the summer of 7th grade going into 8th grade and it took me 3 days because it was soo amazing and it changed my whole out-look on reading. before this book you couldn't pay me to read and this book sparked my LOVE for books. Now i always am reading a book of some sort. This book was an incredible novel full of the bonds betweens friends and the impact of our choices. The books sadness aided the impact of the story on me. Truely this is a [...]

    7. I won this book in my primary school for World Book Day. It was for having the best costume :P ^_^This book is quite good. The action takes place in Summmer 1949. It is about 4 boys leaving primary schol for ever. They are looking forward to a glorious summer of freedom, playing on the old bomb site. On the last day of school, Eddie gets into serious trouble. It's unfair, and he wants o get his own back, but you can't do anything against adults and win. Then, one day they find an unexploded bomb [...]

    8. It was depressing. It reminded me of my childhood. My anger toward my dad and everything that was related to him.Resemblance suffocated me.But I couldn't stop reading.Not a book to read if your looking for a funny and entertaining book.And definitely not the book it you don't want to feel like you want to beat someone up and then kill yourself.

    9. Of all the books I had to read for my set of Beehive Book Award nominees, I liked this one the best. It was an interesting take on post-WWII London and 13 year old boys dealing with all the adults in their lives disappointing them. This would work well for junior high aged kids needing to read a historical fiction.

    10. Though the story-line was promising, I felt an inability to properly get into this book, and consequently failed to enjoy the overall read. I felt the characters were decent, though their execution in the story-line was disappointing. Having been a while after reading it, I find myself unable to accurately remember much of the story's premise.

    11. I would say that this book was best aimed at 9-13 year olds, though I still enjoyed it as an adultI found that the book had peaks and troughs, there were times when I couldn't put it down but then other times when I struggled to keep my concentration.

    12. I appreciate the increasing number of books that give a glimpse at events surrounding major points in our history. Time Bomb tells of four friends one summer after WWII, when they face harsh realities of a flawed world, beginning with their beloved teacher betraying their faith in her.

    13. This is an interesting history look at a summer in a boys life. The way it was written it reads like an adult memoir though not a young adult novel. In addition it has no real theme.
