Book Review – Chase Bartholomew Hastings

Hey everyone,

Angie here with a book review for Chase Bartholomew Hastings. I loved this book. The title of my reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads is Read this Book because it really was great. Yes it is a children’s title, the main character isn’t even a teenager yet, but I enjoyed it as an adult, too. Even though the wording was “dumbed down” a tiny tiny bit to be appropriate for the age group, the story was not at all. The characters all had just as much depth as they would in an adult novel. And the story was just as interesting. The book is available on Amazon in kindle format or paperback.

[author_info]Chase Bartholomew Hastings—an inquisitive 10-year old with a love of physics—lives in a time after what is known as “The War.” Growing up without the modern electronic comforts his mother speaks of fondly from her own childhood, Chase and his two best friends must create their own fun—usually by exploring the limits of their town while being careful not to go beyond the safe zone. When Chase and his friends find a hungry and frightened family hiding in the woods nearby, they decide to take action even if no one else will. After a tornado cuts a swath through their community, things begin to change as people realize that they cannot survive without pulling together. Chase Bartholomew Hastings is a positive, uplifting antidote to the current trend in post-apocalyptic literature.[/author_info] [/author]

 

Book Review

 

5 out of 5 stars

 

Chase is a great kid-lit character. Heck, Chase would be a great adult fiction character. He is a good-hearted kid in a rough situation. The world is in chaos, but he is lucky enough to have family friends and a somewhat intact community. He is young, but is expected to act much older than his age because of the current world situation.

This book is post-apocolyptic, but is not negative like a lot of the books in this genre. It is very refreshing. In addition, I like that, for the target age group, the book was focused in the small town where they live, rather than the world at large. It gives something familiar (community) for young readers to relate to. I also like that the book isn’t all fluff. There is disaster after disaster, and there are characters who think they are doing good who aren’t at all. It is very real even though it is positive and the characters are optimistic.

I really felt like every character in this book was well-developed no matter the size of the role they played in the book. Every character was real and believable.

It was definitely geared toward younger, pre-teen kids, but as an adult, I enjoyed it. It read very quickly and had a moving story line. There were no lulls. I know young, new readers would be able to enjoy this book very easily, even reluctant readers like I once was :).

My name is Angie. I am an editor and a book reviewer on Sher A. Hart: Written Art. I am married and have 2 boys. I love classic authors like C.S. Lewis and Jane Austen and have come to love modern ones like Orson Scott Card and Suzanne Collins. I love fantasy and sci-fi, but am also a huge fan of humor. If a book is truly funny, I don't care what the genre is, I'll read it. I also have a soft spot for silly high school drama stories.
