*Review* Robots Go Wild (House of Robots #2) by James Patterson

Genre: Middle Grade
Published: November 23, 2015
Pages: 333


In book two of the House of Robots series, it's 'bot brains versus 'bot brawn in an all-out war!

Sammy Hayes-Rodriguez and his 'bro-bot' E are making new friends every day as E works as his bedridden sister Maddie's school proxy. But disaster strikes when E malfunctions just in time to be upstaged by the super-cool new robot on the block – and loses his ability to help Maddie. Now it's up to Sammy to figure out what's wrong with E and save his family!


This book took me forever to read because I was reading it to my 4 year old before bedtime. I often wanted to run off with the book to read ahead, but she wouldn't let me.

The big mystery of this book was pretty obvious to me, an adult, but I can see how it would appeal to a younger audience. The language was fairly simple so a young reader or listener could easily understand it as well.

My daughter's assessment was that the book was good, but she doesn't want to choose it again for bedtime (probably because I wouldn't let her choose a new book until we had finished this one.)

Overall I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
