When I stumbled upon this book and read the reviews, I figured I would give it a try. It sounded interesting and different and a nice break away from reality. When I first started to read, I thought I may have purchased a children’s book, but I was wrong. “The Boy Genius Detective Agency” is indeed a book for a variety of readers from older child to geriatrics. The characters have interesting names like “Bubble Gum”, “Soggy Bottoms”, “The Sinister Brain” and “The Woman with Orange Hair” to name a few. The story is extremely creative and action packed. It takes you from go-cycle chases to chess tournaments to underground water falls. The author’s style of writing makes it even more interesting by providing a bit of wit and background humor that tickles you in the right places and makes you laugh. With all of the repetitive music, movies and TV shows now days, it’s nice to see something truly different. I really enjoyed reading this book.

Reading this book was a bit like riding the crest of a tsunami. You never were too sure where it was taking you, but the ride sure was exciting.

When the Boy Genius and his fellow agent, Bubblegum, decided to open their very own detective agency they were a little afraid that no one would take them seriously. They just might be stuck looking for stolen lunch money or missing cats.

But on their very first day they stumbled into a life-or-death struggle that brought them into the crosshair sights of a notorious mastermind evil genius. This set their course not only for the remainder of this novel, but hopefully many more to come.

My only complaint was a lack of backstory. Who were the Boy Genius and Bubblegum? And more importantly, just how old were they? I had a little trouble picturing them because different clues in the book led me to think of different ages. They could be anywhere from 8 to 15. But don't worry, it isn't enough confusion to hamper your enjoyment of this rocketing read.

Looking forward to book #2. Keep 'em coming.

It was a challenge getting though the book, but I kept telling myself that this adventure is written for, and should be marketed to, 12-year-old boys. As someone who loves Sci-Fi and even YA, the dynamics between Boy Genius and Bubble Gum are quite juvenile.

This would be a fun book for a young, independent reader and a good device to get them into Sci-Fi. Boy Genius (Phidias) and Bubble Gum start a detective agency in Megapolis and their second case is a big one. The Afterthought Resonator is stolen by The Woman with the Orange Hair and the pursuit is on. Of course, toss some obstacles, and chess - and you have yourself a launch to a series.

I was provided a copy of this book for review. If you are an adult or YA, this will be a rollback read and you may not enjoy the ride. For tweens - go for it. I thought this book was okay overall.

YA fiction is not normally my forte, but every once in awhile a certain book catches my attention and I give it a go. A few chapters into Boy Genius and I was sure glad that the kid inside me prevailed once again. It meets the very same criteria that I hold every story that I consider a darn good read. The author wastes no time at all pushing the pace of the plot. The characters are quite colorful and piqued my interest as each entered the story. The vibe was sort of a cross between harry Potter and Jeanne Duprau's Ember series. Not so much in content, but more in flavor and style. The main players are young, albeit their ages are never really clear. They are put into situations that would have adults frazzled and running. I love that in a good Young Adult story. I highly recommend this for anyone wishing to encourage good reading habits to the children in their lives. But don't take my word for it, check it out yourself first.

This fast pace children horrama {author's slang} book is about the Adventures of Phidias (the genius, Panda sort of), his girlfriend Bubble Gum as they pursue the Woman with the orange hair (leapardess) and the stolen thoughts resonant device. The boy genius pranks, remarks, color tsck (less of detective action but adrenaline thing, fun though ), and 'gravity well fantasy', also lollipop and other crew member of his Detective Agency will keep you ALIVE with expectations, color fantasy and laughter. I got it on Amazon with skeptical and curious motive , I indeed find it an exciting and a brain teaser even as an adult.
The lexicon at the end of the book is of great help. Yeah, tsck, tsch, 'chromisis yarnist bone' ...a goodread.

The Boy Genius Detective Agency was an unforgettable reading journey that pleasantly surprised me. I was immediately taken into the story, probably since I didn’t read much of these types of books when I was younger. The book was easy and fun to read, with nice pacing and interesting dialog that pulled they story through.
The story revolves around Phidias and his friend Bubble gum who start a detective agency. The story is geared to the young adult audience with suspense, mystery and villains and has age appropriate language. I would highly recommend this book and hope the author Robert Grey comes out with another one.
