Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

I enjoyed reading this book and got through it quite fast. I don't think it was a very good thing that I read this book last out of all the Carnegie books. I think that I would've had a different interpretation and indulgence if I had read it for example first. I had fairly high expectations for this book, as it was the finishing book of the Carnegie's and it was different from what I had expected, in a good way. First I thought it would be about science and afterwards people told me it would be mostly about family. It turned out to be a bit of both. I was pleased with the amount of details and descriptions, but honestly sometimes I lost track of what was happening, but that was probably my own fault. I indulged in the many twists in the book, but I wasn't very happy with the end, as the "dog" left Earth, when the whole point of the book had been about home and family and when he had finally found a person that cared about him he just left. I was delighted that in the end it turned out that Sputnik was on Earth because of Prez's grandpa and not him because the whole story had been about Sputnik and Prez and I liked the twist. Overall I think this book was enjoyable and interesting. I liked the way Prez used lists for everything and I think I might read the next books of the series. I recommend this book to people from ages 10-14, as it doesn't contain any mature themes and it is a book that most people would find amusement in. I would rate this an 8.5/10.
