    1. Amazing book, great story Full review to follow closer to publication.I was privileged to read a review copy of this book months before it was released From the first glimpse of the cover, through reading the description of the book I was very keen on reading it It did not disappoint This was the first book I have read by either Pauls or Solomon and I really hope there will be I must warn you this is a highly addictive read If you find at times you have a hard time putting down books, this will [...]

    3. Disclaimer I have known one of the authors Matt Solomon for than 20 years There s a chance I m biased, but only a very small chance.The Giant Smugglers reminds me a lot of the books I read when I was younger, with a lot of action and just a touch of the supernatural I would describe it as a cross between Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and the X Files A young boy is stoked when he discovers a 25 foot giant in a warehouse across from his apartment in Richland Center, Wisconsin He has no idea t [...]

    4. I misunderstood this one, thinking it was giants doing smuggling like really big pirates but instead it s about a boy who finds a giant that is being hunted for his extraordinary DNA by evil scientistsd he has to smuggle the giant to safety and also the kids have to defeat the evil scientists This is a cute adventure that will definitely appeal to younger tweens and teens.a fun, fast read.

    5. This novel has a lot of action and a decent premise, but is weak on characterization of ANY characters It feels like the characters were just put in place to do a certain job in the story, and who cares what it really means to them, to us, to larger world.

    6. Did not finish The characterization in this novel was unfortunately weak I found it a bit like a novelization of an action movie The characters are put in place to serve a particular purpose in the story and thus were not developed in a way that I found meaningful.

    7. The first half is pretty solid and interesting However after the one dimensional bully becomes a giant, everything quickly falls apart The main friendship of the giant and boy were nicely developed However alot of the characters were unlikeable It then turns into a typical action movie with tons of out of nowhere twists that have no emotional impact or meaning It became difficult to guage how strong or how the giants fit into the world around There also seemed like either the authors had a huge [...]

    11. A new fresh story on Dahls BFG If you have seen Disney s Iron Giant, this is very similar The first half was very intruguing with excellent character development The last half was jammed with fast paced excitement While YA readers will find this book hard to put down, the writing at times is under explicit I found myself reading the same sentences over and over not understanding what was happening Becuase of this the last half of the book feels disappointingly crammed together Still, an exciting [...]

    12. Literary Merit GoodCharacterization GreatRecommended RecommendedLevel Middle School The Giant Smugglers by Chris Pauls and Matt Solomon is a character driven story that sets the story up well in at the start, and leads to a fast paced second half Readers who enjoyed Dahl s BFG will find a readalike in this tale Ultimately, the writing is held back by some confusing sentences in the middle and end Otherwise, worth picking up

    13. Fast paced fantasy adventure, with friendship as the central theme Charlie, and his mom, live in a generic small town, and the highlight of his day is to log on to his favorite online video game That changes when he discovers a young giant hiding in an abandoned warehouse across from his apartment building This book will especially appeal to boys I know of a few who will want to read it

    14. This is a children s book geared toward middle grade readers, but I actually enjoyed it quite a bit This book was a very fast paced adventure with no dull moments I would highly recommend this book.

    15. I didn t realize that The Giant Smugglers was a young adult book until after I started to read it No matter It is fast paced, full of adventure, easy to read, a great story, and original A perfect book for a tween and any adult who sometimes still feels like one

    16. Can t decide whether it s a 3.5 or 4, but it was cute and entertaining I expected it to be a spin on the BFG, but it isn t.

    17. I received a copy of this book from Macmillan Children s Publishing Group via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
