E-Book The Prisoner of Cell 25 Michael Vey, The Prisoner of Cell 25, by Richard Paul Evans, is a fun fantasy with lots of funny and yes, stupid humor too. It is not like the Alex Rider or Jason Steed series and maybe not quite as good. The story lacks the emotion from the Jason Steed novels and the skill of Anthony Horowitz on the Alex Rider series. It is about Michael and his best friend Ostin. Ostin has his name because his mother mistakenly misspelled Austin, as in the Texas city Austin.Michael was born with powers that are due to an experiment gone horribly wrong at hospital he was born in. Most of the babies born during a relatively short period of time died at or soon after their birth. For those that survived, they all have some powers that seem to be related to electricity. Michael’s power is that he is like an electric eel and can shock people. One thing that happened early on in the book is that his mother’s car’s battery was dead and he gave her car a jump start. Ostin is the only one that knows about Michael’s power other than his mother.Life at school is hard for Michael as he has to keep his power secret so he gets picked on and can’t defend himself. One day Michael is pushed too far and jolts a group pretty badly leaving them flopping on the ground and whimpering pretty sorrowfully. Now Michael is afraid that not only do they know but so does this girl he has a crush on, a cheerleader named Taylor, who witnessed the whole incident. Things could get worse but Michael and Ostin discover that there are other electrics out there and also, the bullies leave them alone because of fear.There are many laugh out loud moments and I did laugh a lot. I also thought that the plot line was kept pretty on track and was filled with fun action. I am not really sure why it was called The Prisoner of Cell 25? Hardly a mention in the novel about this..

The best Book The Prisoner of Cell 25 Oh, why why why why why why why why WHY did I read this horrible, cliche-ridden book? So I can give a bad review of it, that's why! So, in brief, this book is about Michael Vey, a teenager that has electrical powers. Here's the cliche part: Michael Vey is a scrawny teen that's constantly bullied, his best friend's a nerdy loser, and the main girl in the story is the most popular and prettiest girl in school. Oh, she's also a cheerleader.Michael soon finds out that Taylor, aka 'most popular and prettiest cheerleader in school', also has electrical powers like he does. What a co-wink-e-dink! <--how the hell do you spell that? Right after they find out that they both have powers, Taylor says; "We should start a club!" I highly doubt a fifteen year old girl (cheerleader!) would say something like that. I swear, these kids act like they're in elementary school instead of high school.Shortly after they (meaning Michael, Taylor, and his best friend Ostin) form the club, they find out that Taylor and Michael's power isn't as coincidental as they thought. Someone is looking for them, and that someone kidnaps Michael's mother and Taylor on his birthday. He sets out to find them.The biggest issue I have on this 'book' is the horrid writing. We are talking about an adult, correct? A twelve year old could write this book better.Example: Taylor looked around. She caught Zeus staring at her. He looked away. She thought he was cute. It was full of 'I said, she said, he said, I asked, I said, he said etc...' Put some depth behind your characters, for cheese sakes! The characters had no depth whatsoever, I felt the author didn't even try with this book.And what's with the name? 'The Prisoner of Cell 25'? Cell 25 only comes in once in the book, and not for very long, so I don't get why they'd name the book after such a small part in the book. Five pages into the book, I was already insulted. Unlike you, I live in Idaho. Don't ask me what state Idaho is in -news flash- Idaho IS a state.The writing talks down to its reader, like the reader was stupid. This line is insulting because a lot of people live in Idaho, or have lived in Idaho (I grew up in Idaho!), plus, everyone above second grade knows Idaho is indeed a state. I realize the author was doing this to be funny, but to me, it just immediately made the main character sound like a little shit. The very next line in the book is also insulting;For one, I have Tourette's syndrome. You probably know less about Tourette's syndrome than you do Idaho. Both my brother and my sister have been diagnosed with Autism and Asberger's for as long as I've known, so yes, I know many forms of mental illnesses. And again, this sentence talked down to its reader, even worse than the Idaho one. It's also ridden with pathetic attempts at humor (Ostin imagining himself being rich and famous one day surrounded by hot 'chicks' who worship him wasn't funny, it was angering). In one particularly irritating sentence, Michael asked his mother what he should get Taylor for her birthday and asked her what girls liked. She replied; "Trust me, we're all the same. We like clothes and jewelry. And flowers." "We're all the same"?!?!?!I never had a more powerful urge to throw the book across the room at that point. Here's a list of a few things I like: BooksAnimalsReadingMusicManga/Anime Video GamesGeeky TV shows from the 60's and 70'sDo you see clothes on this list? Or jewelry? Or flowers? I don't think so! If he got that from his wife then she hasn't been out much; if he came up with that himself, he's a sexist bastard. Not every woman likes clothes and flowers and jewelry. That's just stereotypical bullshit.The only thing I liked about this book is that their powers weren't 'magical' but scientific. They were slightly realistic and I could imagine them happening. In a Marvel comic So as you can see, I really hated this book. It got kind of interesting towards the end, but I still despised it, and will NEVER EVER READ AGAIN. I urge you, do not read this book if you care about your intelligence!Thanks for reading.

  3. I was asked by Left Bank Books to check out this book Man, I m glad they pointed it out to me Michael Vey The Prisoner of Cell 25 was an unexpectedly good read for me I actually didn t read too much about the book, so all I knew going in was that it vaguely had to do with super powers.Michael Vey seems to be an ordinary 14 year old, but we find out in the first chapter that he has a hidden power To make matters worse, he has Tourette s, which makes him have the unfortunate habit of saying the wr [...]


  4. More reviews at Rondo of a Possible World YA Book ReviewsOh man Everything, just everything about this has me tingling up and down from excitement The Michael Vey series is one of my favorite summer reads and I m so upset that I have to wait for the sequel But hey, the wait is worth it I know people are saying that this book could be the next Harry Potter but I think it shouldn t be compared to Harry Potter, not dissing Michael Vey but this story and Harry Potter are great in their own way, why [...]


  5. I am clearly not the target audience for this since I m not a middle high grades boy , yet I still found it sufficiently compelling If I had a middle high grades son, this would top the list of books I d want him to read.The MC is of lower socio economic status and has a mental disorder Tourette s that is not brushed aside as a cute quirk Well done, author There are multiple secondary eh, maybe tertiary characters of color, which is a step in the right direction, although some of the naming of t [...]


  6. It started off so well Clich , yes too much like Percy Jackson, yes But it had potential.Too bad the characters couldn t pull it off.YA romance is filled with female MCs who have little to no personality a vessel into which girls and women can project themselves for a vicarious romantic fling Though for some reason it s never been quite as annoying, I ve noticed that many male MCs are beginning to have this characteristic, as well, as a vessel for a vicarious adventurous fling The only really in [...]

  8. The Michael Vey books have been hailed as the next Harry Potter or Hunger Games series Let me spare you the suspense they re not But that doesn t mean that it wasn t good I think if I were a middle schooler, especially a boy, I would eat these up They are quick, unique, vampire and werewolf free, and completely clean But for me as an adult, I wouldn t say I felt like I HAD to get back and finish it I feel like he has a unique and fresh take on a suspenseful YA novel, fun characters, and great id [...]


  9. I ve had both adults and teens recommend this book to me, so I ordered a copy for the library I really want to give this book 5 stars, but I just can t Where, oh where, was your editor Mr Evans He She should have really caught some of the flat dialogue in the first part of the book You see, I have this thing that I dislike with some books If the writing seems to stop a smooth flow, my brain gives a little hitch for lack of a better word In other words, my brain jerks a little bit, and I lose my [...]


  10. Richard Paul Evans ruined Christmas for me one year I sat in the corner of the living room, reading The Christmas Box and cried In fact, I was in a rather obsessive mood and considered how it would look if I disappeared for a couple of hours and drove to the cemetery to see if the grave marker really existed How much of this story was true Then I calmed down enough to just be ticked off at him for making me cry I hate contrived tragedies which is why I never watch Little House on the Prairie, an [...]


  11. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes Shall I continue This book is absolutely, positively marvelous Haha Yes, that gif needs to be here too But seriously, the story, the characters, the writing style it s just all so amazing and brilliant MichaelYou know, since I kind of hate books with a first person writing to it, I tend to stay away simply because my experience with first person main characters has not been well They re too cocky and seem to know better than everyone else But nope [...]


  12. This book was recommended to me as something fun to read I thought it was horrible.The story included just about every stereotypical bad high school story plot point spoilers below Michael gets stuffed in lockers by big bad mean bullies and the principal won t help him he had a big crush on the prettiest cheerleader, who, voila, happens to also have special electric powers his best friend sidekick is a fat and socially inept genius kid in the course of the adventure, he ends up befriending the b [...]


  13. I was amazed at how awful this book was If you re reading this, I ll assume that you know the plot, either from the handy synopsis up top or from reading the book yourself, so I ll just go on Evans took a pretty cool idea kids with electricity related powers and ruined it via poor writing and flat characterization No matter what Vey was doing, the writing did not change Kissing his longtime crush Being tortured Fighting to the death This is what he sounded like It was the written equivalent of a [...]


  14. What an awful, horrible villain Love the whole idea of electric powers and the wide variety of abilities the kids display Really cool stuff Really like Michael as the hero He s relate able I could easily imagine him as my brother His best friend is awesome too.



  15. Wow What a good start to a series, I haven t read a sci fi book in SO.LONG And I m glad I read this one The best part about this story has to be that all the kids powers are unique but related specifically to electricity I picked up this series because the synopsis reminded me loosely of the Gone series, but even in the Gone series the children had a variety of powers I think having it focused on electricity made it even unique in a way I absolutely adored the clumsy side romance between Michae [...]


  16. I think that your reaction to the summary of this book will be the best judge of whether or not you are going to like this novel As I was first reading it, phrases like It s my story, but Michael is anything but ordinary, and Michael will have to rely on his wits, powers and friends if he s to survive, stuck out at me Not in a good way In fact the whole summary screamed, I m an ordinary book And it was.Richard Paul Evans has written many best selling novels for adults, and this is his first fora [...]


  17. In this book there was a day when 17 electric children were born They were all separated and raised as normal children There are 2 electric children that live in the same city in Idaho There is a man in LA California, named Hatch, who is trying to gather all the electric children and take over the world Micheal and Taylor are trying to escape from Hatch and release the rest of the children Hatch and his apprentices go to Idaho and kidnap Micheal s mom, and Taylor Ridley Micheal and his best frie [...]


  18. I held off writing a review of this book because, well, if you can t say anything good, don t say anything at all, right Well, bullshit I very much wanted to like this book, and the fact that I wanted to like it made me give it 3 stars when I might have given 2 My problem wasn t so much the main character, who is a guy we ve all seen before but whose lack of originality I can get over My problem is the villains The head bad guy comes straight from Austin Powers Dr Evil, but he s not funny He is [...]


  19. Wat een geweldig science fiction verhaal Ik heb er echt van genoten Een minpunt is dat soms alles te makkelijk lijkt te gaan, en het verhaal wordt daardoor een beetje onwaarschijnlijk.


  20. Ugh, got to about the last 75 pages and just didn t really care So much the all action, no depth ofand the just one damn thing after another ofand just a comic book mentality of evil empires.Okay, so it s not subtle I m usually pretty good at boy books even likedbut not Like in this one it just seemed so much for the game obsessed and short attention span, I want to read a movie, not think set of 12 15 year olds that I just couldn t find my inner tween teen boy, even though I live with one Don t [...]


  21. This book was one of my all time favorite books I have ever read On a scale from one to ten I would rate it a nine One of the things I loved about the book was how descriptive Richard Paul Evans was Every scene I could paint a picture in my head with every movement of the characters to the setting behind them My favorite part was when they over ran the Elgen Academy and let the prisoners go With Richard Paul Evens descriptive words I could see the whole thing happen in my head Another thing I li [...]

  23. Wow The first part of this book was absolutely horrible It seemed like the author was trying to be really cool, and instead it was a collection of the worst similes, metaphors, writings, and genuinely unfunny jokes EVER All the characters were so freaking stereotypical, you probably could have made them cardboard cutouts and I wouldn t have noticed the difference Every line, every trick in the book was played, making this very uninteresting And while I was reading, I was strongly reminded of Max [...]


  24. I had seen many of my classmates reading the Michael Vey series, and I had always wondered why it was so popular However, as soon as I started reading it I understood the excitement It is an action packed book with a great story line The author makes you connect with the narrator, making your hate for his enemies greater This book keeps you wanting to read one chapter , and before you know it you re done with the book Michael Vey was a nicely written book, and I would recommend it to a friend.



  25. I ve never read anything by Evans, but I noticed that he was well known for romantic fiction I hate romance So I was surprised to see that this is a YA novel, and one that dodges the ever so popular supernatural romance trap.I was pleasantly surprised by Michael Vey The protagonist has a distinctive voice and is very easy for teens or tweens to relate to with the usual teen foibles bullies, irrational authority figures, an absent father, unpopularity, a hopeless crush and the not so usual ones d [...]


  26. Let me first preface this by saying Although I have not read a Harry Potter book all the way through Twilight or Harry Potter just isn t my thing I will always be great full to the Harry potter series for helping my little sister overcome her Dyslexia So I have no frame of reference with the series that this one is trying to compete with, but I have a healthy admiration.I won t presume that this series will compete for the title That is a big contender to knock off it s throne I can however say [...]


  27. I had high hopes for this book Glenn Beck hyped this up as the next Harry Potter and Twilight I also had high expectations from Beck s new publishing label Mercury Ink of which Michael Vey is its first offering , which Beck described as providing educational and values promoting books to the youth I m very glad I read this book before giving it to my kids This book is very dark and inappropriate for kids It has kidnapping, brainwashing, and torture as prominent parts of the plot Bullying is the [...]


  28. My daughter read this book when it came out and really enjoyed it and said I should read it I finally got around to it This is a great story for readers from middle grade on up It is fast paced and very engaging While I didn t love it as much as I have other books similar to this I thought it was very well done I ll be passing it on to my 12 year old as it seems like something he will love There will be 7 books in this series and book 4 was just released I will likely wait a couple years before [...]
