  • Jasmine from How Useful It Is
    I started reading Max Einstein: The Genius Experiment on 9/22/2018 and finished it on 10/1/2018 at 1:40am. This book is a fantastic read! I really like how smart Max is and how quickly she deals with pressuring problems. Max’s schooling situation is pretty interesting and I like her motivation for learning and doing. Quoting Albert Einstein is actually pretty cool. I like the idea of child prodigies and secret missions. Adding bad guys into the...

    Good start to a series. Max is joined with other genius teens and they set about solving some pretty tough world problems - energy, water, etc.There is plenty of action and adventure along with a smattering of science tossed in.A quick read that will appeal to many students.DRC from Edelweiss and Hachette Book Group

    I received a free copy of "Max Einstein, The Genius Experiment" by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein, through the "Good Read's Giveawy."An adult may find this story is a bit predictable, although all books by Patterson are fun to read. This is meant for a younger audience but educates the reader about Albert Einstein's life and many achievements. I hope as the author suggests, that the book will stimulate both boys and girl's interest in scie...

    James Patterson has a rare gift. While some authors are able to write across genres, one or two, and a few authors can write both adult and YA books, there are only a couple who can write across both Genres and age groups. And Patterson is the best of those writers. Max Einstein is just an example of this ability which combines humanitarianism, with technology, and the natural sciences.Great female protagonist!Max Einstein is twelve years old and...

    It is a given that any book by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein will be a hit and Max Einstein: The Genius Experiment deserves all the accolades that it will receive! It is extremely well-written and researched, and takes the popular concept of a kid being “the chosen one” in a unique direction, as the “chosen kids” are all geniuses (knowledge is their superpower) and they tackle real-world problems with real science. The Albert Eins...

    I received an advanced reading copy of this book.Max Einstein is the first book to be endorsed by the Albert Einstein Foundation and I can see why. Young Max lives her life according to the philosophy and science of Albert Einstein. There are many quotations throughout the book. In fact, I learnt a lot about Einstein that I did not know before.This is a great start to a new kids series about Max Einstein and her team of other young geniuses. They...

    This was a Goodreads Giveaway and I would like to thank JIMMY Patterson Books and Little, Brown and Company for giving me the opportunity to read an advance copy of it. I’ve always been a big James Patterson fan, and this was the first of his Young Adult books I’ve had the pleasure of reading, so I was happy for the chance to read it. I have no idea who Chris Grabenstein is or how much of the story is his doing as a co-author, but I can hones...

    I picked up an advance copy at the ALA convention from the publisher. To be honest, I’ve never read anything by James Patterson except for his Read, Kiddo, Read website. In this story, Max is a homeless kid in NYC who is selected for a challenge involving child geniuses around the world. The winner is supposed to help make the world better. The book has a lot of interesting settings (Jerusalem, the DRC), there’s plenty of action, and it tackl...

    I have to say upfront is that I won this paperback edition in a contest on Goodreads. Who she is and where she comes from is a mystery to her. Max Einstein is homeless and wanted by a world organization because she is incredibly smart. Max is happy her name is the same as her favorite person, Albert Einstein. Max often has conversations in her head with Albert, and hopefully, the answer will come to her when she is trying to decide on a problem. ...

    I won an advanced copy of this book as part of a GoodReads Giveaway. It was a great read- fast-paced in true James Patterson form. This is the first of his children’s books that I have read, but I can see that his talent spreads across all age groups. The characters were engaging and the plot was exciting and interesting, and even as an adult I wanted to continue reading to see what would happen next. I also enjoyed the scientific and globally ...

    I won this book in the Goodreads Giveaway! My 12 year old daughter read this book in two days, she could not put it down! Definitely held her interest!

    Max is a homeless orphan to start the story. She's brilliant and able to manipulate computers to enroll in college. She knows how to fly under the radar so carefully calculates maintaining a C average. She's taken from the class and put in a group home by two sinister men (you can tell as they wear all black.) Two other people rescue her and bring her to Jerusalem to audition for leading a team for an organization that wants to solve earth's prob...

    Max Einstein is about a girl named Max who is pretty much a child genius. She's going to college and is purposely barely passing in order to not look suspicious. Her role model is the one and only Albert Einstein, and she wants to follow in his footsteps. However, her life gets turned upside down when a mysterious organization wants to recruit her to solve the world's problems with science. As she competes, she realizes that another organization ...
  • Jessica
    Fantastic and intriguing book co-authored by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein!!!What a great debut novel in this new series by two writing geniuses. I absolutely cannot wait for more titles. Maxine is a strong female heroine, the character is sure to inspire a generation of budding scientists. I can see this novel creating a renewed interest in Albert Einstein and other world renowned scientists. The plot twists and character growth is well ...
  • Mary
    This came so incredibly close to being not only a good book, but a great book. But I had to ask myself, “Would I be comfortable giving this book to a young person?” The answer was no. The stereotypes were subtle, which was what made them dangerous:Grown-ups, or “growns”, are all superfluous.Genius kids don’t like to play or tell stories.Bad guys dressed in black and they’re big and dangerous looking so you can easily tell them from th...

    Max Einstein is a twelve-year-old homeless orphan who is also a genius and Albert Einstein's number one fan. When a shadowy corporation try to kidnap her for sinister ends, Max manages to escape with the help of a mysterious benefactor and finds herself in competition with some of the brightest young minds from across the world for an exciting opportunity. A great new STEM-orientated role model for kids.
  • Laura
    Who is Max (short for Maxine) Einstein? That's one of the central questions here, and one that never gets answered. Whoever she really is, whatever her background really is, she's incredibly smart and empathetic, something the other geniuses she meets aren't. The science here, including Albert Einstein's theories, is understandable to all readers and may inspire some to learn more.ARC provided by publisher.

    Max loves anything and everything to do with Albert Einstein. She even has his surname. but she’s not really sure it’s really hers. Max doesn’t remember her parents or anything about her past, but talking to Mr Einstein when she’s alone and lonely helps her not only think through a new idea she has, but chase away the loneliness.Max also doesn’t know that two wealthy organisations have been watching her – one keen to do good in the wo...

    I found that Max Einstein was to childish for my taste. You always knew that the characters were going to get a happy ending, and getting to the happy ending didn't seem as hard as other good books. I enjoy happy ending books, but I prefer books targeted at older readers.Good for anyone with a passion for Einstein, I liked how the readers's don't know about Max's mysterious past yet.

    I was blessed to get an ARC of this awesome, amazing, fabulous book at this year’s BookCon. It was fantastic! Can’t wait for the sequel! Please give me another book!

    This book was awesome and readers will love it!
  • Adriel
    I was so very excited about this book when I found out about it and I was not disappointed at all. Female lead, the young saving the world, and it encourages science! What's not to like? Great read for any nine year old and up.
  • Amanda Hagerty
    First I like to say thank you. I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. For my honest review. I really enjoyed reading this. It was fun and fast paced read for a middle grade book. This book had cute illustrations. This story is about a young orphaned girl named Max Einstein. Who has no idea where she came from or who her parents are. And if Einstein is her real last name. She lives in a room above a stable with her friends. Max is a very smart 1...
  • Jeane
    I love this book and the character Max Einstein. She's smart, interested in science and in doing good. Kids are going to enjoy this book. Great Christmas present for your elementary kids. Going to be a hit series; can't wait to see what Max and her friends will be doing next. Teachers and librarians: add this to your bookshelves.
  • Kaci
    Cute younger middle grade novel about a homeless girl genius. She and other kids from around the world are brought together to solve some of the worlds most pressing problem. It checks a lot of boxes: diverse characters, STEM topics, enough action and unresolved plot points to keep readers interested in the series. I enjoyed the running inner dialogue between max and Albert himself and the abundance of Albert Einstein quotes put into context thro...
  • Marilyn Smith
    It's not just Max's last name Einstein that sets her apart from most kids and adults. SHe's crazy smart, naturally; wildly curious and lives above the NYC horse stables. Max and her super secret team travel the world...but wait! First Max needs to sneak into her college class for advanced physics, when she's abducted by burly guys from a shadowy secret company and that's when her big adventures begin. Fabulous new series -
  • Chrys
    A really enjoyable and educational book, I loved the characters and the sense of adventure. Perfectly balanced writing with gorgeous illustrations.The educational side of things is written clearly and simply, without any talking down or condescension - the theory of relativity in less than a page made perfect sense,Fingers crossed that this gets the attention that it deserves - a fabulous role model for all children.
  • Melanie Dulaney
    Great series starter and another WIN for the collaboration team of James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein! Max/Maxine Einstein and a group of fellow kid geniuses really put their brains to good work in a fast-paced tale of run-from-the-bad-guys-do-good-things-for-those-who-need-them realistic fiction book for readers of both genders in grades 4 and up. Max is a thoroughly likable character with brains galore who has lived on her own for as long as...
  • Adriana
    A really fun story for younger readers that not only has a positive, female lead but also makes science fun and easy to understand. The copy I read has a note from Patterson stating how he wanted to make science more accessible to children and to prove that girls can be good at it too. He definitely succeeds in that. My one complaint is that everything works out a bit too easily but I understand not wanting to scare little kids with grown-up real...
  • Michelle
    An entertaining book on how people of all kinds of knowledges can work together and help solve problems.Yes, they were mostly kids,but kids grow up to be adults,don't they?Anyone can be helpful and knowledge goes a long way,whether solo or used together as a group.Using Albert Einstein's thoughts was a tribute to how he helped make our world a better place.
