Comments Space Case

  • Stuart

    Yes, I'm the author of this book, though I'm not writing a review of it. I'm just pointing out that some of the earliest reviews of 'Space Case' weren't actually reviews at all. They couldn't be, because no one had read the book when they were posted -- except for me and my editor. According to , these 'reviews' might be 'readers indicating their desire to read this book,' although since none of them have added text, I don't know if that's true or not. For all I know, they may have simply review [...]

    Space Case is the first installment in Stuart Gibbs' middle-grade, science fiction series titled: Moon Base Alpha. This was required summer reading for my seventh grader and we decided to do a buddy read together. We both ended up really liking it and my son has already picked up the next book in the series. Some parts of Space Case were a bit slow in my opinion, but overall it was an engaging age-appropriate murder mystery with a surprising little plot twist added in. The "life on the moon" com [...]

    One evening, my oldest little, aged 8, came to me with a very serious problem. They did not have a book that he wanted to read at his school library. This is indeed a problem that Mom can handle, relish even. Oldest little reads but really only because he knows he's supposed to. The reading love bug just hasn't bitten him yet despite my best efforts to lock him in his room surrounded by precarious stacks of the good stuff. Helping him track down a book at our local library because he wants to re [...]

    My eight year old and I read a *lot* of fantasy middle readers. Hey, he's an eight year old boy. Eight year old boys love dragons, wizards, and magic. It's part of the growing up thing, so I'm pretty used to it by now. But I'm also not above trying to tempt him with another genre now and then. So when I saw that Stuart Gibbs was starting a new middle reader mystery series - this one set *on the MOON* - I was all over it. It was a pretty big hit with the kid. He quickly warmed to our twelve year [...]

    This is the second book I have read by this author. Really enjoying these books. The first one I read was Poached. Just like that one, Space Case is a quick read. I get lost in these books (in a good way). All of the characters just jump off teh pages and the storylines are great. However, I have to say that in this book, the mystery surrounding the case is better. It was more serious. Whereas in Poached, I felt like there was no real mystery. In fact, I would call Poached more of a comedy read [...]

    I received an advanced copy through my job. This is a cute story. It's a little bit long and drawn out, but a nice little murder mystery for the YA crowd. I enjoyed it. Also, I love the covers of Stuart Gibbs' books. They are really great and unique. I always know it's one of his books just by the artwork!

    Twelve-year-old Dashiell and his family are some of the first people to ever live on the moon. Sounds amazing, right? Not according to Dash. He thinks life at Moon Base Alpha kind of sucks. There's the uncomfortable inflatable beds and chairs (regular furniture is too heavy to transport), the terrible rehydrated food (no fire for cooking allowed), and don't even get him started on the toilets. Plus, in such a small space with so many restrictions for kids, there's nothing to do. All that changes [...]

    Dashiell isn't thrilled about living on the moon with his scientist parents in the first ever permanent moon base, but he realizes that despite the cramped and unpleasant conditions, he is making history. When the base physician, Dr. Holtz, takes an unauthorized outing out onto the surface of the moon and is killed because his suit wasn't on properly, there is lots of conjecture. Did he have space madness? Was he depressed? Or was someone trying to kill him? Dashiell wouldn't have thought much o [...]

    I thought that Space Case by Stuart Gibbs was a alright mystery/sci-fi book. I liked the background of the story, it was really interesting. There was good description of the place where they lived. Also, I thought that the author described the characters really well. They had interesting personalities that added to the story. However, there was a lot to not like in this book. For one, the writing was pretty simple and while it had good description, it wasn't very interesting. Also, the mystery [...]

    As a bookseller, who loves realistic science fiction, it's hard to find great science fiction titles to recommend to kids. When I was growing up I was often bored with science fiction written for kids. I would have to describe what I read back then more as fantasy then science. Thank the shelves for Stuart Gibbs! I already recommended many of his books for mystery lovers but now I have my go to for the science fiction loving kid! I was pulled into the story by both the authenticity of the settin [...]

    I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this book. I have like all of Three Musketeers series and the Spy School series that Stuart writes so I wanted to give this book a try as well.I like that the story takes place on a moon colony. You don't read to many stories like this in today's Middle School selections. I also am glad that Stuart did his research while writing this story to make it realistic enough that students could imagine being there someday. I like that he included excerpts f [...]

  • Debbie Hazeleger

    Fun YA detective/sci-fi novel. Definitely a recommendation for the burgeoning sci-fi reader. (also space sucks, and I love books exploring the technicalities of living in space and just how terrible it would all be)

  • Joan

    This is the sort of book I have felt lacking in the collection for a while. There has been so little real science fiction published lately that I'm really thrilled with this series opener. And to have it also be a mystery is just fantastic! Note that I said science fiction, not fantasy. We have fantasy coming out of our ears. Now I do love fantasy but we need to have a balanced collection and there has been so little actual sci fi published that I was rather worried. At least now I can go to thi [...]

    A family review-- written by me, my 12 year old daughter, my 10 year old son, and my 6 year old daughter.Space Case excited us at every turn of the page. It was a fabulous family read aloud. We all found it to be a great mystery full of silly humor, fascinating facts about the moon, and crazy characters all of whom seemed like possible suspects at one point or another. The cliff hanger chapter endings had us begging for more and some days Mommy read until her throat was raw! It was worth it thou [...]

  • Nikolas

    though im a kid, i really enjoyed this book. there was an amazing plot twist and how Zan turned out to be an alien. i thought it had the reader hooked the whole way. the way zan was discovered as an alien was original, it wasnt like "im an alien!" the end, it shocked me in an appropriate way and gave Zan important role and Zan had great character development. I recomend this book to anyone that likes mysteries.

  • Inger

    Ik had het echt niet verwacht, maar wat een fantastisch boek. In het begin af en toe weggelegd, omdat ik niet echt in het verhaal kwam. Aan het eind af en toe moeten stoppen met lezen, omdat ik het toch wel erg spannend vond.

  • AmandaMS

    Loved this YA book. A good murder mystery that kept 6th graders entertained and me on the edge of my seat.

    Love his books and my students do too. Can't wait to use this one with my small groups. Also, very interested in the sequel!

    The book I read was The Space Case I felt this book wasn’t very good in my opinion and I didn’t really enjoy reading it.This book begins with the first people to inhabit the moon in this moon base. Dashiell talks for a while saying how everyone thinks that living on the moon would be awesome. He list so many things out of hate that he doesn’t like. Like he doesn’t like the bathroom system and how you have to learn to walk again because the gravity messes with everything and how you have [...]

    I have to admit that I read #2 before this one. Luckily, Gibbs provides enough background that the reader doesn't feel lost. Loving the Moon Base Alpha series as do my students in grades 4/5. The setting is unique for novels for this age range and the mystery, space adventure element adds to the experience.

    A murder mystery in space? For kids? Count me in.

  • Wade Schacht

    Enthralling space adventure. Lags in the middle.

  • Jacque

    We listened to the audiobook. My kids loved this book and all gave it five stars. It was a fun read. Several times we were laughing out loud and had to pause it so we could discuss the funny details. We will definitely be reading the second book!

    Review first posted on Views from the Tesseract: shanshad1.wordpress/2014/1What’s interesting about the idea of genre is that it isn’t a perfect set of delineations that allow books to fall neatly into one area or another. Many books skirt more than one genre at a time. The mixtures and crossovers lead to stories that are space westerns, dark fantasy, steampunk, etc. In the case of Stuart Gibbs’ newest offering, we have a plot arc that is a mystery set in a science fictional setting.Twelve [...]
