This is an entertaining book which can be read by teens and adults. The viewpoint does switch around several different characters, but is never confusing or misleading.  This book was created to be a prequel to the movie due out soon, "Tomorrowland".  I did enjoy the book and finished it very quickly.

Difficult to rate a book highly when you can't stand to read more than afew pages at a time. It has negative fashback scenes, an obligatory dying mother, the typical arche-villian, and a narrative that keeps you wondering if the author worked from an outline or jut tumble from one sentence to the next.

Although "Tomorrowland" was not a blockbuster of a movie, it was based around a very interesting premise: what if the greatest geniuses of the early 20th century pooled their knowledge to create the world of tomorrow...today? The film's plot unfortunately fell a little flat, but the concept was truly original. This book (and comic) help provide the background to that film, explaining how the geniuses began their work and built their world. Even better, it's how-we-did-it framework is wrapped in a cracker jack action novel involving killer robots, spies and even Nazi troopers. Highly recommended: one of those books that you don't want to end!

Excellent book. Lots of action and adventure. Excellent use of real-life historical figures. An excellent setup for the movie 'Tomorrowland'. I just wish the movie was as good as the book - or at least, better than it actually was, but that's another story.

I just hope that the book and film go together. I don't want to read something in the book that fascinates me and then not see it in motion on the film. I truly believe that the film is going to be wonderful though.
