The Absolutely Amazing Adventures of Agent Auggie Spinoza

The Absolutely Amazing Adventures of Agent Auggie Spinoza is a very good book by Steven Stickler. I would recommend this book for readers of age 8 and older. I read this book when I was 9 years old, and I really liked it. I would also recommend this book for all readers who like time travel, historical fiction, code-breaking, and suspense.

This book is mainly about two main groups of time travelers, called the Time Watchers (the good guys), and the time vultures (the bad guys). The time watchers try to keep history on track and learn about history, while the time vultures try to mess up time and history to their benefits. My favorite part of this book was when Auggie escaped Mr. Coyote in the time of Charles Darwin. First, when he was on his fast bike by putting a branch through the tires, and flipping him over TWO times in a row! It was a very good trick. Then, he got trapped inside this ware house, and was forced to fight for his life. He sneaked away safely, but the next day he was found and grabbed by the shoe. This is the funny part, Auggie uses a trick he learned a LONG time ago, a trick to slip your foot through your shoes without untying the shoelaces. Using this trick he escapes and save history by keeping the history on track.

My favorite character was (naturally) Auggie. I liked him because of the good character traits that he had, like friendliness, optimistic, and many other talents. I would give this book 4.5 stars out of 5 stars. This is a great book!
