    • Reviewed by Kira M for TeensReadTooSimon Bloom and his friends have a cool job. They are part of the Physics Guild, for which Simon is the co-keeper of the Teacher's Edition of the Book of Physics. They have the ability to use formulas to control the different laws of physics and get to use them to save the world or just have a fun day in the park.Things take a turn for the worst, however, when the Order of Sciences decide that there can only be one Keeper of the Physics Guild. To make matters w [...]

    • In this book, Simon Bloom and his friends, Owen and Alysha are celebrating their recent victory over the villainous Sirabetta. Nicknamed Sir by her evil friends, and suffering from a memory loss, Sirabetta is stuck at age thirteen rather than thirty-three and her magical tattoos aren't working. The kids "her age" know her as Sara Beth, and make a big deal about the splotchy tattoos. A few rebellious members of the Order of Chemistry find her and help her come back to her senses and retrieve her [...]

    • A second book that is every bit as good as the first. It retained all the things that made me fall in love in the first place: the sense of wonder, the intellectual inquiry, the character growth, the original world. Mr. Reisman managed to make an expanding threat to match our hero's expanding capacity without throwing in the traditional 'It all just gets bigger'. And yes, I'm excited to see where it goes.

    • In this work of science fiction, Simon Bloom The Octopus Effect by Michael Reisman, Simon Bloom and his friends set out on an action packed race to find Sirabetta before her powers are restored, fighting her henchmen along the way. The Teacher's Edition of Physics, a book, teleports into Simon's room. It warns him that, "The end is coming; make sure there is a new beginning." Simon Bloom, a thirteen year old who just started junior high already has three formulas from the Teacher's Edition of Ph [...]

    • I really enjoyed the concept of the original and its use of scientific laws as "magic" this one carried on the plot satisfactorily in a variety of interesting new settings. However, it suffers from the all-too-frequent sequel book problem of a ballooning cast of characters that become increasingly difficult to keep track of, in spite of the helpful table the author added (In general, I find that when these tables are included it is a dangerous sign that you are going to need to refer to them fre [...]

    • Simon Bloom: The Octopus Effect:Pros: New characters, does not leave a huge gap from when the story last left off, kinda funny, and some fun action.As long as the list of pros is, unfortunately, the list of cons is even longer:Cons: Not as fun and action-filled as you would expect, narrator not as much fun tolistento as he was in the first, not very funny, too many unexplained plot holes mainly having to do with character backgrounds, very confusing at times due to previous con, not as good as t [...]

    • I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first in the series. It felt like the whole book was just one battle after another, with each battle being overly descriptive about the scientific facts and rules and laws. (It kind of got boring.) Things didn't really pick up until the end, and then of course, the ending has a cliffhanger so that you will read book 3 (coming out in Spring 2010) which of course I will have to do to see how the series ends. AARGH!I listened to the audio version of this book [...]

    • A pretty good follow up to the first book. Deklan loved it. The ending had a bit too much of a cliff-hanger ending for my tastes. I like the continuing involvement of the Narrator. I am looking forward to him playing a major part in the third book. I don't know if the third book will be the last or not, but I 'm in at least that far. I think the humor is just right for a 7 year old. I also like that they briefly explain all of the science topics that they touch on (and they touch on a lot) I jok [...]

    • Gr 5-8 – Simon and his friends Owen and Alysha are back in this sequel to The Gravity Keeper, along with the Narrator and the evil Sirabetta. Sirabetta, now in a 13 year old girl’s body, is angry and more determined than ever to take over all of the Teacher’s Editions. Simon’s new octopus abilities are a cool addition to his growing list of powers, which he’s finding harder to control. Action packed and full of interesting scientific references, this is a fun summer read. Read by Nicho [...]

    • This book was just sort of there. It has a really great premise and *should* be great deal of fun, but it just wasn't; fun that is. I think it is because the characters are really shallow despite the authors attempts to make them more so (transparent attempts to have surprise revelations about the villain aside). Also, while the first book had a sense of exploration and discovery to it as Simon learned to use his powers and lots of winking nods to the reader, this book didn't really. A really ad [...]

    • Ok, I am not going to complain about the explosive action plots in the book. I liked them and this time around, it involved the order of biology (if you like animals and nature). The only downside was that the book had too many characters involved! I kept getting a mixed up every time they fight. Reis forgot about character development on this book. Nonetheless, I'm still looking forward for book three. Hopefully, more on the order of psychology?

    • Wildly imaginative! Action, adventure, and huge creativity. Probably better than the first in the series. There was occasional teen attitude that bugged me but the storyline made up for it. I loved all the cool powers that the characters had ( I want an exoskeleton!) and I enjoyed the story being told by the Official Historical Narrator. I hope all works out for the third book to be published!

    • Fun book. It has been some years since I read the Gravity Keeper but I had no difficulties getting back into the story. Interesting series progression - physics, bio, chem. One would think that chem would go between physics and bio, but it worked like this. The Biology domain sounded pretty awesome. Is it weird that one of my favorite characters was Preto? (Given that he only appeared maybe three times in the whole book.) If the third book is at my library, I shall read it.

    • We loved the first Simon Bloom book, and looked forward to the sequel. Unfortunately it lacks the tension, character development, and plot twists that made the first one such a thrill. My wife remarked that it seemed to her that it was written with screen adaptation in mind, and I agree -- it's not taking advantage of the benefits of the print medium, and seems more superficial than the first book. I hope Michael Reisman gets back on track with a third book.

    • Simon Bloom and friends are back, and so is the enemy they thought they had defeated in Simon Bloom, the Gravity Keeper. Also back is our trusty narrator, Greygor Geryson, whose voice seems stronger in this second "chronicle".Reisman's narration came off as overly clever in the previous book, but he seems to have hit his writing stride here. This is a good thing, since he packs in a lot of adventure, travel, and battles, as well as new characters and scientific facts.

    • I was listening to this book in my car. Thought it might be fun for my family to listen to with all the science In fairness to the series, I Didn't read the first book. And I didn't get too far into this book before giving up on it. I don't know if it was the book or the reader but the tone bothered me. Almost talking down to the listener/reader. There was Too much trying to fit in science concepts and explanations. It takes away from the story.

    • The sequel to the gravity keeper, this book will keep people on the edge of their seats. Luckily, this was a sequel that got better instead of worse like most sequels. I highly recommend this book but also recommend reading the first book before this for background information. Most of the story takes place underwater and definiteley stretches your imagination.

    • totally awesome!! best encounter with science ever!love how little things mentioned in the first book make so much more sense cool when the other plants stuff like that early on in the storyally hope there will be more than 3 of these. gonna start the third one tonight. keep writing please!!

    • This book is great, leaves me wondering "What's the catch?" because all books must have a catch. that's just the way things work. maybe the next book in the series will be the one that goes crazy and stereotypical. cuz it WILL happen.

    • I liked this one better than the first -- the imaginative biodome headquarters for the Biology Guild was cool and I like the interplay with the narrator even more in this one. My 8-year-old gives it 5 stars.

    • So far I like this book just as much as the first Simon Bloom. Although the bending of science is more fantasy and science fiction, it makes for a good story and cool action. Not to mention some good humor.

    • I thought the book was adventurous but the fighting gets repetitive after awhile. The end keeps you wanting to read more.
