Book Review: Kevin’s Point of View by Del Shannon


Kevin Tobin is a relatively ordinary twelve-year-old dealing with the aftermath of his father’s death. To escape his emotional turmoil, Kevin has developed his imagination into a dangerous foil and powerful ally. After a mysterious package arrives at his door, Kevin and his best friend are hunted down by a ruthless villain determined to retrieve the package, unknowingly spinning Kevin into a battle for control over time itself. Set in Boulder, Colorado, this imaginative story, appreciation for the powers of family ties, the desire of young boys to both escape reality and prove themselves within it, and the fast-paced, adventure-filled storytelling style make this a book with wide appeal for readers of all ages.



For a book called Kevin’s Point of View this book spent less than half the time telling the story from Kevin’s point of view. The rest of the story was split between Kevin’s best friend Tony and the villains, Pudge and Devin. However once you get past the misleading name it was clear that this is a ‘boy’s book’ in that boys aged 10 and upwards would enjoy it (or girls who are into car chases and the like, I’m not saying girls can’t like it). The book is filled with action and chase scenes as Kevin and Tony try to escape Devin, with this escape filling about 80% of the book. As the boys in question are quite young themselves this book will especially appeal to young or teenage boys who enjoy seeing two kids outwit an adult and I do recommend the book for this group.
