Mr. Was is overlooked

When my teacher first suggested it to me I was very sceptical. She had said it was her favorite book she read but it didn't defeat the fact that it was about traveling through a "magical door" that takes yo through time. But I got into it very fast. You try to hold all the facts together and try to understand everything but it will all come as a shock to you in the end for it has a plot twist that rivals that of the Sixth Sense. So many undesserving books aer higher than this in the Booklist. It makes me so upset that some great books (such as this one) get overlooked.

1 billion out of ten!

This book is a perfect mix of everything!It was amazing how the whole thing just came together at the end, but you were still so wonderfully confused. I loved the way it was written in "notebooks" becsause it made Jack's life sound SO real! The plot was so gripping it was almost impossible to put down,and it was the perfect book to read if you love books about time travel that will confuse but hook you. There are many suprises that never in a million years would you expect.A must read book for anyone who loves to have their imagination streached!

Excellent Book!

I was completely attracted to the book by the first page. This mesmerizing book deserves a five star award! I liked the way the author had a twist to the plot! It made the book harder to follow but once you read it it all fell together!

This book is very adventures

Mr. Was is a confusing, exciting book. It won't let you set it down. You will love this book, but you might get lost once in a while, but towards the end it will all make sense. Peter Hautman is a talanted author, and I would suggest you read some of his other books, too.

When Jack walks through the door, his world changes forever

This book was appsolutely Incredible! At first nothing makes sence, but keep reading, and all your awnsers will hit you so fast you'll have to stop reading for a second to think about what you just read! The exciting and complicated plot makes this a book you won't be able to put down! (I finished this book in less than a day!) It was so exciting! I would completly recomend this Book to any one who loves to read, loves excitment, or complicated plots. A MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
