    "Star Struck"

    This story kept the kids interest however it was full of evolution jargin. It reads as a story with scientific information added at the end of each chapter. This information relied completely on evolution being the only explanation for space and beyond. My kids got impatient with the scientific matter and wanted to move onto the story. There is a heavy science lesson in each chapter.

    "Very Educational"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    If i was in the mood to learn about space and the science of space then yes. when i was listening i was not in that frame of mind. i needed to escape and this book was too educational to allow me to get lost in the story.


    What was most disappointing about Lucy Hawking’s story?

    nothing really.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the costume party.


    Do you think George's Cosmic Treasure Hunt needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    yes. as i understand it, they just discovered actual evidence of dark matter. let's have it.
