Reviews Max Einstein

  • 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

    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...

    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...
  • Julie Garner
    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...

    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 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 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...
  • 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.
  • Ava N
    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!
  • 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.
  • Jules
    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!
  • 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...

    * My daughter read this and had a great time. She's not a super fan of science/math but still enjoyed it a lot.* I received a free copy of the book in a Goodreads giveaway.
  • Meghan
    I received this novel as an advanced reader's copy and from the get-go I was intrigued by the storyline and having a female heroine making or breaking the overall theme of the book made me REALLY intrigued. I loved the organization of the books and the notebook sheets installed so the reader can see what was going through Max's mind when she was solving all these mysteries and performing science experiments. This book will definitely be well rece...
  • Susan Grimm
    I won an advanced reading copy of this book and was asked to write a review once I had read it. I thought it might be of interest to my 11-year old granddaughter who is math/science-oriented and likes to read. I'm not sure she would like it, but others her age might enjoy it. I read it with children her age in mind and while I found some of the situations far-fetched and unbelievable, I think kids might like it. I'm not sure if this is intended t...
  • Colleen
    *Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the review copy.*A very solid start to a new middle grade story. And loved that the hero of the story is a girl. Max was a very likeable if somewhat precocious character.The series’ overall story ARC was set up nicely and I enjoyed the book’s story ARC as well although the combination of the two made the pacing somewhat uneven. The editor in me also wasn’t a fan of the constant use of short, fragme...
  • Cesar Leon
    muy interesante la forma en que presenta la ciencia como parte central en este libro Ya que puede acabar por introducir a los más jóvenes de la casa a ser curiosos por alguna de tantas áreas junto a Max acabar por llevar acabó esas misiones mientras van explorando el mundo.

    I regularly pick classrooms to read to at my children's elementary school. This year, I am reading to a 3rd grade class and a kindergarten class. I am reading "Max Einstein" to the 2nd graders. We are reading a few chapters every Friday. We're on chapter 4 now. So far, the students are VERY interested in this story. They are eager to find out how she became homeless, how she got to be so smart, and how she ends up helping to save the world when s...
