When I tell my friends about the book Herbert's Wormhole by Peter Nelson, my friend's get a bit freaked out over the title. I mean, Herbert's Wormhole? Sounds a bit strange, right? But it's a really good book actually! Herbert's Wormhole is a hilarious book full of adventure. It sounds epic? Well, it is!
There we're two totally different neighbors. Alex and Herbert. Alex was a video game addict, and Herbert was a total science geek. They're parents set up a play date without telling them, and it was epic. They stumble on a wormhole. A wormhole was a time travel portal which made them stumble into their neighborhood, except they went 100 years into the future. You would probably think, what could be different? A lot changed. There are Australian aliens with fake mustaches and hair. Creepy right? And then, they're mistaken for Alien Slayers! What could possibly be worse? Alex and Herbert have to try to outsmart the `G-Daliens' before they get hunted down, and they have to try to escape their future neighborhood and get back to their present day neighborhood as well.
I think the themes in the book are about not to judge people. If Alex didn't have that play date with Herbert, he wouldn't have discovered the Wormhole and gone into the future, and played No-gravity baseball. Before, Alex thought Herbert was just a geek that never went out much. But after their experience in the wormhole, Alex and Herbert we're a lot closer than before, and they we're closer with their other neighbor, Sammi.
I think this was a really good book, because it was about learning how not to judge people. And it was funny and full of adventure. I recommend this book to people who like adventure and comedy, because this book has both. If you ever read it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
