Oct 23, Imaan rated it really liked it. He doesn’t know where he was born. And, unlike Cadel, she could draw no comfort from the prospect of release, because her incarceration was permanent. Those adults didn’t want me to tear my hair out, but they did jins me a little hesitant to like them.
He may keep secrets. Though he does get to use his go-to disguise of dressing up as a girl a few more times. And life isn’t easy for this ex-genius.
Other books in the series. A fun follow-up to Evil Genius, where there is cleverness and fun and danger, and it all works out, sort of. When he is approached by the mysterious Genius Squad he joins both to finally do something and because it means he can live with his best friend Sonja, also recruited by the Genius Squad. But the police cant find out. The mother, Hazel, is extremely sweet but his foster brother, Mace, is the furthest from nice.
Jul 21, Shanshad Whelan rated it it jlnks ok Shelves: Ich bin jedenfalls gespannt welchen Einfluss dieses wichtige Detail auf den dritten und somit letzten Band der Trilogie hat. There is no hint of ANY of that in this book. I didn’t even bother to pick up Genius Wars. Darkkon, Prosper English and the Axis Institute.
I just wish his character arc didn’t turn out quite so convenient. His only solace in this world is Sonja, a mathematical genius with cerebral palsy. Because if they do, all Cadel has ever gotten at his new life, will be taken alway from him. I can only hope he maintains his good characterization; villains tend to fall flat during the final encounter in most books I’ve read; the more sadistic they are, the worse they turn out in the end.
The book gets a little boring at times, especially when Jinks spend a lot of paragraphs talking about hacking which jniks definitely not as entertaining as, but definitely more realistic than, hacking montages in movies or TV series. I’m not much of a technological geek, but I grasped most of it. I’m about two-thirds of the way through, and every time i think jihks can’t get more annoyed, Jinks proves me wrong.
But nothing is well for Cadel – Propser English refuses to admit Cadel is his son, the police are unable to find anyone other than Cadel as a key iinks to testify against that villain, Cadel himself is living in the most abominable conditions possible – in a foster home with a thug squaad called Mace who enjoys bullying Cadel and with very little computer time and on top of that no country or university is ready to accept Cadel.
I never give up on series, but I really can’t be bothered to read the last one in this trilogy. Sq An ex-Mountie tries to protect an angelic-looking teenage genius from the criminal masterminds who raised him. May 09, Liz Vennum rated it it was amazing.
Genius Squad – Catherine Jinks – – Allen & Unwin – Australia
Jinks is tenius at giving you the bare bones you need to understand so it wasn’t totally confusing, and I remember the basic premise. Oct 13, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: Granted, he realized he’s been manipulated his whole Quite a gap between reading this one and the first book, so there’s a decent chunk of stuff I don’t remember. It’s just a general trend of the massive amount of events that occur in these books. I saw the ending from a ways away and, while I’m happy for Cadel, I was wishing it would be something more unique.
Definitely a break from a love triangle scenario. That doesn’t mean he’s above doing wrong, it just means that he thinks first. One of sqkad nitpicks would be that the other genius kids didn’t seem all that genius to me. Open Preview See a Problem?
Genius Squad was really cathefine bit of false advertising: May 20, Armchair rated it liked it Shelves: His reasoning for this, is that he believes that Genius Squad might just be their best chance of finding Prosper and bringing him down once and for all. This book begins a couple of months after the last.
Genius Squad (Genius, #2) by Catherine Jinks
Cadel is in foster care with limited computer time which is like prison to him. But Cadel is naturally suspicious and paranoid. Catherine writes whenever she gets a moment and could write for eight hours straight if she had the chance. What I like most about Genius Squad is that, just like Evil Genius, it is an intelligent book about an intelligent kid. Or perhaps we are meant to marvel at how smart Cadel really is in relation to these swuad kids.
