    And while the author plays it straight with his kid readers - no hip irony here - he does have some fun with cowboy cliches that older readers and adults will get and enjoy. With the addition of a suitable rest, the slingshot can also be used to shoot arrowsallowing the hunting of medium-sized game at short ranges. Please note that I received a free advance will-self-destruct-in-x-days Adobe Digital copy of this book in exchange for a candid review. I got it for my birthday and read it in three days. This book was recommended to be by a friend so I gave it some effort, but it felt like I was reading a report with missing information the whole time. John Milligan, a part-time manufacturer of the aluminium -framed John Milligan Special, a hunting slingshot, reported that about a third of his customers were physicians.

    With the threat of the horrific details of In the early 90's a group of high ranking officials from the Russian and American governments came together to form a highly classified initiative that could potentially lead to the death of millions of people. They are given a lot of freedom to roam about the country side on their bicycles which they pretend are horses, Thunder and Lightningshoot things with their slingshots, and sleep out under the stars. Overall, this is a fast paced, complex, international conspiracy novel that easily sets itself as a top example of the genre. Somehow I miss more depth but I am still curious about the big questions in the book and I hope the next book will manage to meet my expectations. Next fling the man over the buildings.

    After reading it he started building a zipline in the back yard and almost completely stopped playing video games. Nov 06, Alyssa rated it it was amazing Read this book to my fifth grade class. Apr 22, Chp rated it really liked it Great debut novel, I can't wait to read the next part. These so-called "balloon guns" are sometimes made as a substitute to ordinary slingshot, and are often used to create the "shotgun" effect with multiple projectiles fired at once.
