      I must be fair There is a reason why Avi s books have been popular In the 1990 s, this book would have been well read by young people especially boys It s written well and has a strong plot It s a heartwarming story But in comparison to similar books in today s market, the characters do not hook me There is conflict, but not enough to keep me reading, but I did, to give it a full chance It occurred to me that Windcatcher is a perfect mentor text for those of us who are aspiring Middle Grade auth [...]

      I kinda liked this book because it wasn t very interesting and it skipped around a lot so it was hard to catch up on what was happening.

      I ve come to love Avi as a writer Most of his books are hits, and rarely are they ever a miss This was no exception It was exciting, it was fun, it was informative about sailing at least to my landlubber tastes, having never set sail ever and it was a treat to read.But I have to say, the ending was really terrible There was TALK of resolving the plot of the entire book, but it s as if the last ten pages are missing, since no one actually does anything to resolve it If Avi bothered to actually co [...]

      Avi is a weird dude, the book is meant for the young but has no depth at all Not very mysterious for a mystery Avi obviously does NOT know how to sail, based on comments like His teacher told him to come about He pushed the tiller away and she said No the other way Supposedly the kid learns enough in two lesons to take this boat out alone in the ocean, now that is the true mystery.

      the book was not very intortaning because the mane carictor is just wind surfing tony was inoying it seemes in the book It seemed like he is just sitting around all day i feel like doing something else insteed if I was the ather I d make tony do athletic stuff but one of the things i liked is windsurfing there should be heroic and saving and romantic seance for tony i would of improved

    8. Fred Kohn on said:

      This was all right, I guess, but I ve gotten used to expecting better from Avi Since a boat was involved, I was hoping for some of the excitement of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, but this didn t come close.

    9. Joe on said:

      Avi does a great job of writing a believable young boy who doesn t realize how naive he is in his search for treasure The trouble he gets into is not overdone, and the mystery he is trying to solve feels probable The ending is a disappointment for character and also the reader, but it suits the story.

    10. Keith on said:

      I really liked this book and I will definitely use it as a recommendation to boys at my library It s got adventure, treasure, danger but is set in a real life situation so it feels like it is about every boy You ll want to go sailing after reading it

    11. Patricia on said:

      Audio book Must be juvenile fiction I expected However, what kid does not like the idea of looking for treasure Just for myself, I would have ranked it two stars but for juvenile fiction I would rank it 3.

    12. Junessa on said:

      Another good AVI adventure but the ending is a little less than satisfying I would have liked to have answers at the end It has a story line that is easy to follow and nice excitement but not scary so I d say it s good for ages 9.

    13. Cinda on said:

      This part adventure, part mystery would appeal, I think, to boys who like survival stories.

    14. Alissa on said:

      Avi is a great author but I am always left wanting This book felt like he wrote the first half of the story, got bored with it and just ended the book I was hoping for

    15. Cheryl on said:

      Read this with Ben It kept us both interested, but the ending left you wanting a little .

    16. Freda on said:

      This book all around sucked I had to read it for school and it just pissed me off

    17. MacKenzie on said:

      Not interesting enough to keep me hooked s about a boy who tries to find a wrecked ship before 2 other people also searching for it.

    18. Aven on said:

      It s been a while since I ve read this book Seems like I didnt like it when I read it Can t remember what the book was about though Guess it didn t make an impression on me.

    19. Andrew on said:

      I read this book in 4th grade and I thought the end was really suspenseful.

      Disappointing I usually love Avi, but this book didn t live up to my expectiations It had great potential, but it seemed thrown together, and the end was abrupt.

      Ryan and I listened to this one It was a little slow to start but we really liked it after all.
