Amazon.com Review

Fifteen-year-old Bobby Pendragon has visited the alternate dimension of Denduron (The Merchant of Death), explored the endangered underworld territory of Cloral (The Lost City of Faar), and traveled back in time on his own planet Earth to uncover the evil plot of the fiendish Saint Dane--the evil force behind all these interworld exploits (The Never War). Now he "flumes" (a kind of time/space travel) into the territory of Veelox expecting to wage another battle against evil... only to find all is peaceful. He quickly discovers the peace is due to the fact that most of the citizens of Veelox have become addicted to Lifelight, a virtual reality lifestyle. Unfortunately, what once seemed so safe and enjoyable has taken a frightening twist, and Bobby must rely on a Veelox Traveler named Aja to help him find a solution--and save the territory. His antagonistic relationship with the brilliant Aja grates on his nerves as she spits out cryptic words of wisdom: "Salvation here can be found in only one place: the imagination. If you can't understand that, you might as well flume out right now."

Fans of D.J. MacHale's Pendragon series will enjoy this latest entry, and look forward to the forthcoming fifth title. The attraction of the series is not so much great writing or character development as fast-paced action and edge-of-seat danger. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

Format: Paperback
The "Pendragon" series captures the reader's attention and draws you into a world of betrayal, suspense, and uniqueness! I have been reading the Pendragon series ever since one afternoon in fifth grade when one of my fellow peers recommended some book called "Pendragon." Sincerely, when reading the synopsis on the back of the book, I believed that it would be..."cheesie." I was WRONG! The one reason why the Pendragon series is a remarkable read is because it is distinct in its plot and words. When reading the Pendragon series, I stay up as late as 12:00 or 1:00am intensely devouring the words of each page. Embarrassingly to say, I am currently a seventh grader and am presently reading Book Five of the Pendragon series, "Black Water." Read the Pendragon series and you will be drawn into a world of intrigue, thrill, and you will endure the most spontaneous and surprising events you will ever read in a young adult book.

Okay, I've heard of good books, but this one blew my socks off. Bobby Pendragon is a Traveler. He goes to a place called Veelox, which is completely deserted. Everyone is in virtual reality. The residents don't even know it, but their world is crumbling as they enjoy virtual reality! Bobby has to stop this. Awesome book, awesome plot awesome characters. YOU WILL LOVE IT!

Format: Hardcover
The hype on this book is "fast-paced action and edge of your seat danger". That's fine, and that's what the book delivers.

Here's the problem. When the fast paced action subsides, there is always an undercurrent hinting that there will be a great back-story about Halla, and who Bobby is, and what Travelers are, and so on. This hinted at, promised overarching story is probably what keeps people coming back to this series and what gets them through the increasingly frantic storylines of the individual volumes.

Well, if you really like these characters or if you really like MacHale's volumes as stand-alones, good luck and good reading. If you're just toughing it out to get to the final volume payoff, you might want to consider skipping ahead a few books.

I have just started reading the Reality Bug and I think it is the best one in the series so far. I really like that Mark and Courtney have a bigger part in this book. I think they are a really important part of the story and I like to read about them. Plus, I think Veelox is a really cool territory and I can't wait to learn more about it. If you haven't read these books, you are missing out.

Format: Paperback
The fourth book in the series has the same idea as the first three but has a wicked, sudden ending. It gets you ready to begin the fifth book as soon as you've finished.

But what makes this book better is that a lot more is revealed in this book than in the others. It kinda refreshes the series to keep as in depth as it has been. Satisfying fantasy read.

The Reality Bug is an awsome book! I loved it and stayed up hours of the night reading anxious to see what happens next. The characters are so well developed. The plot and story line are exiting and kept me glued to the book hungry for more! I can't wait to the next book in the series comes out!

Format: Paperback
Like most of the Pendragon books, Pendragon: The Reality Bug was full of action. I really liked this book because it kept me on the edge of my seat. This book begins when Bobby Pendragon travels to the territory of Veelox, and meets a girl named Aja Killian. She is a very harsh girl, and just so happens to be the Traveler from Veelox. They have to find a way to stop the territory of Veelox from going into complete chaos. The citizens of Veelox are all living in a tube that creates a perfect life for them. There is just one problem, and that is that while they are imagining their perfect life, Veelox is becoming deserted. Everyone is going into the tubes to get away from the troubles of real life. Aja and Bobby have to find a way to get them back into real life, of the evil demon Saint Dane will win his first territory.

This book would go into the genre of science fiction/fantasy. The author is D.J. MacHale. He adds a lot of different emotions to the book. Sometimes its sad, sometimes its romantic, and a lot of the time it is funny. This is one of the books that I cant stop reading, and I would recommend it to everyone.
