Feb 17, Bogdan rated it really liked it. Firestorm does a good job at that because it shows the reader klxss devastation and the salvation of the plant because of us humans using the natural resources. Firestorj really liked Firestorm, i thought it was a great book, and went on to read Wirlwind. Also, when Eko took out the future technology, the writer never writes any details about why it worked and this was fireatorm another manga I read called Doraemon.

His mother is not his mother. YA sci fi or fantasy book told almost entirely in sentence fragments? You are commenting using your WordPress. Beside all those flaws I like how the author focuses on issues of real life such as describing the problems on Earth and the ocean life being destroyed. It sounded more like the set up of a movie scene and was easy to imagine. Then you read Firestorm. But what is Firestorm? A firedtorm running back cavid the football team, Jack barely has time to savor a victory before his father whisks him away, warning him that everything the teen believes is a lie.


Before something happened the reader automatically knew it was going to happen so there was no surprise. I also like how the author set up a feeling that shows just the beginning of a complicated story.

His telepathic dog Gisco is lovable and speaks in mostly full sentences. It is up to Jack and Firestorm to save an endangered planet, much like Arthur saved daavid England with Excalibur.

Let me refresh your memory. There were twists, but you had a good idea of them before they happened. Taking everything into consideration, I thought it was okay. This book is very eco-conscious, and Klass very creatively expresses this in a superhero setting. The reader can tell David Klass put so much time into making sure you liked and felt sympathy for each and every person in the story.

The action is non-stop, and the secrets are not all revealed at once–and they’re not always what you assume. Survival in Love, War, or Sports. Firestorm on the other hand?

Review: “Firestorm” by David Klass | Mary Pelton’s Blog

Oct 10, Amanda rated it it was ok. Even when a huge thing happened to him not gonna spoil it he was just like “Ah well! After reading this wonderful book, I clearly understand why it’s endorsed by Greenpeace. First of all, horses were domesticated to be built for humans, and secondly, they didn’t exist in the Americas until the conquistadors brought them over.

Klass also beats certain phrases a bit too hard, making sure we understand the part each character plays–but if that’s part of the mock-epic, it’s not as bad.

Email Address never made public. I liked the actiony parts. Jack lives with his parents in a normal town, where he excels in football and other sports as well as academics.


As for technology, the author doesn’t really point out what makes one good and another bad, other than who is using it.

There are klxss bat-like creatures chasing me, and things called Gorms. Klass’s fragmented first-person narrative both suggests Jack’s extraordinarily quick thinking and also keeps the pace going at lightning speed.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign davjd. I chose this novel for the witty banter and the rollercoaster ride I was forced on. And now they’ve found him. It sure didn’t help my firestotm after deciding to set it aside that I read the back of the book and found a glowing review by the head Greenpeace dude.

Seems my father isn’t my father. In short, concise sentence fragments. Did you ever think that beating a high school record would result in a game of fighting for your life?
