Isla from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

This is the first book I have read by this author and was looking forward to it, however I found this book slow to start and some parts I lost track of the story line! As I got further into the book, the story did pick up a bit, however I still found it slow and consequently, found it hard to read. A positive part about the book: I enjoy reading about Gods and Demigods and this novel featured Zeus, Hermes, Aphrodite and Athena. One difference was that some of the Gods in this novel were represented as animals rather than people but the names I have mentioned above were still human. I did learn from this book about Star Signs and Star Constellations which I then discussed with my mum. I am a little disappointed with this book as I was really looking forward to reading it however it didn't live up to my expectations! So this is why I have rated it a 5. Moving forward I would still be interested in reading another book by this author belongs it is a different subject altogether.

Chloe from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

Who Let The Gods Out I thought the book was a bit boring because it was all about consolations then it was about Elliot. I thought it was a bit confusing because it jumped from one thing from another. What is the book about? The book is about a consolation called Virgo who crashed down to earths into Elliot's cow shed. Elliot is poor and his mum is poorly. I thought the book was all right. if you like a true story with a bit of magic then you will love Who Let The Gods Out.

Cara from Year 4, - Home Educated -:

Eliot is a 11 year old boy who has a tough life looking after his ill mum and their tiny farm. He has no friends, he doesn't have time to do his homework and his teacher bullies him. He wishes he could have his old life back and for his mum to be well again. Then if he hasn't got enough problems, a constellation (Virgo) crashes into his cow shed. Together they accidentally release Thanatos, the Daemon of Death, out of his prison. This has to be the worst encounter with the Greek gods anyone could ever have! With help from Zeus, his son (Hermes) and his two daughters (Aphrodite and Athena) the pair have try to stop Thanatos before he destroys all the gods and humans in the world! This book is hilarious and if you like fantasy books this book is perfect for you. However, it isn't just funny, it is also emotional at times. The author is amazing at writing the characters. I felt sad for Eliot and his mum and understood his fear of taking her to see a doctor then losing her. I liked the way his friendship with Virgo developed too. I loved this book, my only criticism is that you are left with the feeling you HAVE to read the next book!
