    One thought on “Eager's Nephew”

    1. I remember liking Eager a lot, so I was looking forward to reading this book, Eager's Nephew. But I was a little disappointed when nothing much happened in the story. Sure, twenty years have passed and the Bell kids are all grown up, and things have changed dramatically for robots, but that doesn't excuse a story where nothing exciting seems to occur. I kept waiting and waiting for excitement, but it wasn't to be found in this book.So, this story revolves around a robot that I think kids may hav [...]

    2. Best book ever. I haven't finished it yet, but its great! It's the second book to Eager. The series is amazing. Eager is a robot who can pretty much think and do stuff by himself. Robots like him are not allowed, since they can do damage and stuff, as shown in Eager. Eager visits his former family with his nephew who rode with him without Eager knowing. So far, it's like the best thing ever.

    3. In a nutshell: A book about a robot (Eager) and a newly made "relative" (Jonquil) who is taken as a stow-away to Eager's home. Jonquil soon develops from a nuisance to a lively, fun-loving and eventually life-saving robot. In my opinion this is a wonderful book that brings to light the future and its realistic attributes.

    4. Just not engaging at all - not for myself or my 8-yr old son. If you're looking for something along these lines, I recommend Fox's Eager, or Shusterman's Tesla's Attic. I'm disappointed that Eager's Nephew fell as flat as it did, at least in our house!

    5. It took me a lot longer to get into this one than into the first one. It was still good and rather intreasting to see what happens to all characters from the first book after 15 years and how certain scientists got around the "ban." Kids who like sci-fi, would find a fun read.

    6. I love how even in the futuristic setting, many of the problems the characters struggle with in this series are timeless.

    7. It was okay, but it was a dissapointment compared to the first book, Eager, which was definitely better. Oh, well

    8. I liked the way everything is very different to Robots than to humans, but I still didn't find it very interesting. Overall, I think it was good.
