After seperately reading and completing one of these books, we would meet up and talk ecstatically about what dangers we faced, what ciphers we had to solve, and what ending we ultimately came to. In short, this is definitely a life-changing series (all the better that it’s a series, too!) for reluctant-readers. The stories were really creative as well - and really well-organized. You couldn’t turn a page without meeting another danger; therefore, there was never a “slow” point of the story.
Oscar’s favorite book, The Treasures of the Forgotten City, had more of an element of adventure - very similar, in fact, to Indiana Jones, if you could imagine it as a book. Olivia’s favorite book, Sabotage in the Sundered Sky, was more of a mystery book. Who was the sabateur? And why’d they do it? and so on. It was so much fun trying to navigate these books (as well as the rest of them) to find the Ultimate Ending. There was also a slight element of fear added in to picque the suspense, mystery, and intrigue. In one book, there was a haunted hotel. In another, a mysterious, dark dungeon with a writhing, glowing, terrifying monster-like being. In yet another, a strange beast that seems to wreck havoc in a zoo. Neither of us care much for scary stories (in fact, we refuse to read them), but the Ultimate Ending books had just enough “scare” in them that it served only to bring up the level of suspense - so much, in fact, that it was nearly palpable.
Overall, a brilliantly done Choose Your Own Ending series with danger, suspense, fear, adventure, mystery, and action at every turn.
NOTE: We received Treasures of the Forgotten City, Secret of the Aurora Hotel, Sabotage in the Sundered Sky, Enigma in the Greensboro Zoo, and the Tower of Never There (all Ultimate Ending books) for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
I was already aware that the books didn’t need to be read in a particular order other than the invitation at the end of each book. Of the first six books, 4 & 6 were my least favorite, with Enigma at the Greensboro Zoo receiving my lowest star rating of the series with four stars.
Book Four seemed more like Curious George, with the main characters sort of bumbling through the narrative. Although this one is one of the shorter adventures, it appeared to take more time to get through. If I recall correctly, it took me two hours to read all the permutations of this book.
Still, the fourth book in the Ultimate Ending series is worth picking up, particularly at the lower price point, because it is an excellent return to the CYOA books of yesteryear.
