Book Review - Trapped in a Video Game: Return to Doom Island

Trapped in a Video Game: Return to Doom Island

About the Book

Kids who love video games will love this fourth installment of the 5-book series about 12-year old Jesse Rigsby and the wild adventures he encounters inside different video games.

Age Level: 8-12 Grade Level: 3rd and up

Alistair Gregory, the man who figured out how to put people into video games, is not what he seems. Jesse Rigsby is sure of that. Jesse’s sure of something else, too—he’s being watched. To unravel the mystery, Jesse’s going to have to transform himself into a superspy with serious retro-gaming skills. Can he pull it off before the bad guys catch on?

My Take on the Book

We enjoyed the first few books in this series and as we got into this one we found that it was a very quick read. While the book is geared at 8-14, even as an adult I enjoyed it as well. The book had a ton of action that kept you moving from page to page. The characters were well developed and you really get to know most! The book picks up where book 3 left off so reading the other books will help you have some context. You will love the connection to minecraft, or at least I know that we did!  All-in-all this was a fun book that my daughter and I enjoyed reading together!
