    Guys Read True Stories has some women doing the reading too, and it s not nearly as macho as the title might lead you to believe Further, you can t describe your book as 100% amazing, 100% adventurous, 100% unbelievable and put out this less than stellar collection of stories It s not terrible by any means, yet I had hope for this than it delivered I thought it was going to be all kinds of exciting, but only one or two of the stories lived up to the hype The lead story about a early 19th centur [...]

    This is my first Guys Read book and I will be buying them all for my classroom Great stories just long enough to develop nicely, just short enough for the most reluctant teen reader My favorite was A Cartoonist s Course by James Sturm Creative kids don t always find role models, Sturm is definitely a good one.This review is based on an ARC provided to me by the publisher.

    Well, someone is paying attention to all of the new Language Arts standards This collection showcases amusing NONFICTION pieces on a variety of topics, from Jim Murphy s painful treatise on the history of dentistry, to Candace Fleming s account of the elephant Jumbo in Barnum and Bailey s circus, to Steve Sheinkin s alarming account of a ship s crew stranded in the Sahara desert and sold into slavery There are two cartoon accounts that I couldn t read well because the E ARC was only available wi [...]

    I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this little volume Most of the nonfiction authors were familiar to me, so I shouldn t be surprisedI think just the title Guys Read made me think that I might not enjoy it This included a variety of types of true storiesa terrible shipwreck in the Sahara desert, information about tarantulas, a comic strip about Hugh Glass, stories of canoeing adventures I think the one about tarantulas was my favorite It was fascinating to read that in one type of tar [...]

    I especially loved the story of Jumbo the circus elephant, and was weepy at the end of it I thoroughly enjoyed Pack of Brothers it was humorous and was an interesting glimpse into life in Vietnam several decades ago Three of the stories dealt with hardships in nature Sahara Shipwreck, Tarantula Heaven, and The River s Run In the latter two stories, the people involved went into the wild places voluntarily In Sahara Shipwreck, a shipwrecked captain and crew have to survive in the Sahara desert, a [...]

    Not my kind of book at all, but I read it for a group, and even though I didn t actually read every story I very much was taken with the ones I did I have no doubt it will engage kids looking for something that is True and Not Boring and Not Girly.

    These were great I was literally walking around the house trying to read at the same time because the first story was that engaging Super interesting and each little story is by a different author so the tone and style change feels very fresh and excitingome for a reluctant reader I felt like they petered off a bit at the end, but it did make me want to read guys read collections.

    Summary This book is perfect for any teen boy who wants to read an adventure but can t seem to get hooked on the idea of fiction These stories based on true accounts are fantastical enough in their writing that it really does draw you in From settings as extreme as getting shipwrecked and enslaved in the Sahara desert, to simply lines of poetry to explain the elements of the Universe, this book contains some highly interesting and entertaining stories that are sure to hook your teen boy reader S [...]

    Synopsis The synopsis for this book is a little skewed, considering that it is a compilation of random stories and even poems all put into one book However, each story has a significance and realness to them that make them unique Sahara Shipwreck discusses the struggles of Captain Riley s crew after a complication at sea, soon becoming slaves They have to find a way to return back home to America Uni verses is a collection of poems that all have one subject in common science Each poem focuses on [...]

    This book is a compilation of true stories geared towards boys Each story is written by a different person which allows for some good variety in style and tone The stories also have a small reference page immediately following them which I think is actually kind of a cool way to teach about honesty.Since we read a couple of stories, I just want to focus on two The first is Jumbo I immediately liked this story because a I love elephants and b The Greatest Showman is about P.T Barnum, the guy who [...]

    I only read a few select stories from this book for my class, but most of them had very disturbing elements to them I did not realize how morbid and gross some of the stories were The one about Jumbo and how they paraded around his body to show respect was a very new take on death to me I never thought about how that could be an actual way that people show respect for the dead It was interesting to read and talk about the story Mojo, Moonshine, and the Blues, because my group discussed how we lo [...]
