Samantha Margles
Other Genre
If “Other Genre” selected, what genre was the book?
Science experiment compilation
What is the setting of the book?
There wasn’t a setting, since it was a book with experiments, although the experiments all could be conducted at your house.
Who is/are the main character(s)? What are they like?
Adam Savage & Jaime Hyneman are the main cast of the show MythBusters, in which they conduct experiments to prove common myths wrong or right. The book was based on their experiments.
What is the conflict of the story?
There was none.
What was the conclusion of the book?
There was none.
While reading the book, what were your emotions?
Some of the experiments made me a little uncomfortable (“Critter Cookbook”) and some seemed really cool! Personally I don’t think I would do any of them, but I can definitely see other people enjoying them. It was fun to read, though!
Do you think the book had a moral? If so, what was it?
It didn’t have one.
Star Rating
Selected Value: 6 (0 min / 10 max)
Why did you give the book this rating?
The experiments were really cool! Although, some of them would have taken weeks/months to complete and I definitely couldn’t wait that long.
What was your favorite/least favorite part?
My least favorite part was the “Critter Cookbook” section which gave recipies for food with insects baked into them. It made me kind of uncomfortable since the idea of eating bugs is really weird in my opinion.
Would you recommend this book to others? Why?
If you’re out of ideas for a science fair, then yes, haha. It’s probably not as fun to read unless you actually do the experiments (which I didn’t).
