51d-hc71xxl Iron Man: The Gauntlet – Eoin Colfer, Marvel, (9781484741603), 2016

Format: hardcover fiction

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4

Genre:  science fiction

What did you like about the book? The action is non-stop and although I am not a Marvel aficionado, I know enough about the character to see it’s a pretty accurate portrayal. Tony Stark is egotistical and snarky and the moral dilemmas are interesting.

Anything you didn’t like about it? It was a little hard to follow at times and character development was minimal.

To whom would you recommend this book?  Students who like comic books, robotics and science fiction.

Who should buy this book? all middle schools

Where would you shelve it ? Science Fiction

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No; I think this one will sell itself to the kids who want it anyway.

Reviewer’s Name, Library (or school), City: Laura Gardner, Dartmouth Middle School, Dartmouth, MA
