    Really enjoyed this whole series. Great tone, love Max and how 100% of people buy that he is a grown up. ...

    The final book in the Mister Max series (?) certainly leaves room for a spinoff which is great for his fans. ...

    Mister Max is an interesting series. He's very good at thinking on his feet and, when the occasion calls for it, playacting. His parents left on what was supposed to be a fairly simple trip in the first book and then ... disappeared. Max figures out what happened to them (as a "Solutio...

    This is a fun trilogy! Max is definitely way too sensitive, mature, smart and talented of an actor to be a twelve year old boy, but if you can overlook that detail you're in for a captivating adventure! I really like the dialog, the characters, and the compassion and wisdom of the main...

    The third book in this series. Great story for the juvenile reader and the adult reader who likes a little adventure and a light read. ...

    I quite liked the first two books. They were charming, but this one was unsatisfying. The rescue plot required too much suspension of disbelief. ...

    Yay, I finally finished this series. It was decent, but after 2.5 volumes, the end felt hasty and confusing and unsatisfying. ...

    A dissappointing ending to an otherwise delightful series. There was more book than there was plot. ...

    I really enjoyed this series. When my son is older I plan to read it again with him. It is fun to see how the Max solves the problems that he finds himself in and he takes upon himself. ...

    I have not read the first two books in this series, however, this one can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone. I don't read a lot of MG, but this one was fun, and it has a little something for every one to enjoy: fantasy, adventure, and mystery. There are also pictures which add to th...

    Review of all three books in this series on www.topshelftext.blogspot.com. In The Book of Kings, the third (and final) installment of the Mister Max trilogy, Max sets off to find his parents. Max is uniquely gifted in crafting situations so that the people involved feel as though t...

    I am glad I read all three books. The ending was the best, but the reader would not understand it, if they had not waded through the other two. ...

    EEEEEE!!! just finished this book. The series is intelligent and well paced, and one I'm always excited for. I was finally able to get my hands on a copy, after an exaggerated wait, and I was not disappointed! I don't know if there will be another, but the possibility has me over ...

    I loved the adventure, the build up to the rescuing. But, honestly, because the parents were away most of the other books (all of the second) you forget how annoying the father is, and I feel so bad for Max! You love them, but your parents are also imperfect with (sometimes) annoying t...

    **Thank you to Penguin Random House for sending me a copy of this book for review consideration!** The Book of Kings was a wonderful end to the Mister Max trilogy! Though I'm sad to see all the characters go, I'm glad that it ended the way that it did. It was quite a wonderful midd...

    I found myself skipping descriptions, and again was annoyed at the abrupt changes of points of views. Still, the soltioneer does good work. He finds ways to see a bigger picture, and more than one way to solve the problems before him. ...

    -Possible minor spoilers below- Without doubt this will go down as one of my favorite book series of all time. The writing was nothing short of exceptional and was frankly beautiful to read. My only real complaint is the fact that for most of the third book you are away from som...

    Such a good series. This is the last of the Mister Max series. The mystery of what his parents are doing in Andesia is solved. Max is a fine Solutioneer. ...

    I thought this was just a superb book! It's a little more intellectual than the first two, but really lets Max's personality come through and develop as he takes on a much more adult job. As an anthropologist I was particularly impressed with some of his reflections on performance and ...

    A delightfully surprising conclusion to one major facet of the series, though I hope this isn't the last we see of Mister Max! ...

    A pretty satisfying conclusion. The twist at the beginning regarding Max's parents really set the stage well and made the rest of the plot more plausible. It was refreshing to finally see some action after all that filler in the second novel! I'm not sure how middle graders would fi...

    This book gets a lower rating than the others for one reason - I was confused most of the book. Maybe it's because I was reading too fast, or maybe it's because I stayed up until the wee hours trying to finish the book. What can I say, I was excited to find out how everything would tur...

    I really don?t know how this series has given me such joy when reading, but it has. Again, this book seems like a simple book, one for younger readers, and I guess if you read it without expecting much, that?s the case. But I found so much more depth while reading it and it was ama...
