One thought on “Ship Out of Luck

  1. Josiah

    Most Neal Shusterman series feel different from the Antsy Bonano books That s partly because Antsy Bonano is a humor trilogy, but the Star Shards Chronicles, Unwind Dystology, and Skinjacker and Accelerati trilogies also build conspicuously, each successive novel heightening the tension and plot complexity until we re at the limit of what we can endure The Schwa Was Here, Antsy Does Time, and Ship Out of Luck are companion novels, so it doesn t matter much which you read first There are referen [...]

  2. Cheryl

    Yes, crazy funny But also smart, and as likely to appeal to smart kids who like to look up all the allusions Atlas Shrugged, coyotes, gancha which doesn t even tempt our noble hero, of course, don t worry , etc I do love the Antsy books I should read others by Shusterman, but somehow they don t appeal.

  3. Lonna Pierce

    You know those reviews that call a book hilarious and it isn t Well this latest book in the Antsy Bonano stories narrator of The Schwa Was Here Antsy Does Time IS absolutely hilarious and wonderfully well written This time around Antsy manages to cause an international incident with his family on a cruise ship The title is foreshadowing at its best Super characters, wacky plot, and Shusterman s gift for presenting another point of view for us to consider, as skewed and yet wise as that may be.

    Ship Out of Luck by Neal Shusterman is about Antsy, a big trouble maker that causes problems in the name of having fun He and his family are invited aboard the Plethora of the Deep to celebrate Crawly s 80th Birthday Crawly is a very wealthy and pushy old guy who gets frustrated really easily at every little thing that bothers him Crawly also has a blind granddaughter, Lexie Along the way Antsy meets a girl named Tilde who is a smuggler of Mexican immigrants Tilde makes Antsy keep watch for her [...]

    More top notch storytelling in this third installment of the Antsy series The Bonano s go on a cruise with Crawley and Lexie, but trouble is always just around the corner for Antsy There was an excellent, topical plot element in this one I feel like the end could have been stronger, but this was still a very enjoyable read.

  7. K.A. Wiggins

    Fun and funny YA that weaves awkward mid teen shenanigans, poverty, and immigration together in a light yet high stakes tale that s unfailing entertaining Great for the younger end of the YA spectrum, with just enough dating angst to make it a bit mature for some MG readers, but none of the explicit content that ages YA up into adult territory.

  8. Stephen Konert

    Great book, not so many fancy long words, I would definitely make sure that I read the first two books next so that I could fully understand what was going on with the whole general series story line.

  9. Catherine

    I made it to page 80 but am bored out of my mind I loved The Schwa was here, but this one felt like it was written by an adult trying to be a teen The references Antsy makes aren t likely to be understood by a teen The pacing is off, and as a huge Schusterman fan, I m disappointed.

  10. Jennifer

    The plot was interesting Some of the main characters from previous books go on a cruise together, and as usual, Antsy gets himself unknowingly in a bind with potential serious consequences not all of which are resolved at the book s conclusion I gave the book lower stars than the first two in the series Antsy still has a bit of an irreverant tone, which adds authenticity to his character, but some readers would be offended by it I was put off by the added maturity in tone as well, compared to pr [...]

    This book is so effortlessly insightful it blows my mind I just got done reading Unwholly which I expected to blow me away and it did For some reason I didn t expect the same out of this book, even though The Schwa Was Here brought me to tears, and that was my mistake This book is incredible, and I d like to quote my favorite passage below Howie might not have all the answers, but he definitely knew the right question Why do we do this stuff And there s so much stuff, they don t make luggage big [...]

    review will appear 7 17 13 on readinglarkFor Antsy Bonano, the third book s a charm.I had read the original Antsy book, The Schwa Was Here, and thought it was a fun little humorous novel, perfect for adolescent boys In preparation for reading Ship Out of Luck, I also read book 2, Antsy Does Time which was of the same fun, with a theme that was a bit serious With book 3, I got the fun from book 1, with moments of mature discussion of social issues There are spots that I have marked just because [...]

    This was a wonderful book My young adult daughter was housebound after an operation and so I read this book aloud to her I kept chuckling over some of the things Antsy was thinking and saying It is a perfect read aloud book that 6th grade students will enjoy as well as adults The interesting thing about it is that you can t think of it as a silly kid s book It has quite a bit of educational value There are lessons hidden in the book where Antsy explains the meaning of certain words or gems of wi [...]

    Back in the 2005 2006 school year, one of the Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award candidates was a book by Neal Shusterman called The Schwa Was Here It was my introduction to Neal Shusterman and a boy named Antsy who was gutsy, a good friend, and not afraid to call a spade a spade He returned a few years ago in a second book, Antsy Does Time, when he once again showed his ability to get himself into the proverbial pickle, and come out smelling like a rose.Well, Antsy is back once , this t [...]

    You guys I had no idea what I was getting into when I agreed to review this book for the publisher All the feels The main character, a teen male, named Antsy his short for Anthony had absolutely no filter He said things just the way he saw them He was also quite sarcastic and would drop lines always at the wrong moment But I grew to like him because he had a huge heart According to his mother she raised him well by putting the catholic guilt in him.Here a few of my favorite lines In my neighborh [...]

    Having not read any of the previous books, I wasn t sure what quite to expect with Ship Out of Luck I decided to plunge into the book and think of it as a standalone, which worked well Antsy struck me as a great character right off the bat He obviously had a lot of history with getting in trouble and it was easy to see how things could get out of hand on a 7 day cruise for Old Man Crawley s 80th birthday I loved the variety of characters Lexie is a blind, rich girl the granddaughter of Crawley a [...]

    Overall, this book isn t that bad I usually struggle to find books that interest me The thing that I enjoyed most in the novel was the contrast between characters The strongest contrast was between the main character, Antsy, and a girl he meets, Tilde Their differences lead into friendship and lead them on several adventures through the ship, not always ending up well The vocabulary is rather easy and won t make you struggle through it I felt like the exposition was quite slow and the conflict t [...]

  23. Zack

    Ship Out of Luck was a outstanding book The author,Neal Shusterman, made a great plot, with many twist and turns The detail was really vivid The characters he created fit the story really well The author wrote the novel as if he was talking to you instead of writing it to you This made the story interesting to read In the beginning of the story it seemed a little confusing and I didn t know if I was going to like it I kept reading but at a slow pace and the story slowly unwound The plot got a m [...]

    Gosh, I love Antsy Hey SHusterman, don t mind me, but a humble reader, but drop the unwind thing and just give us Antsy He is HILARIOUS, believable, sarcastic, funny, relatable, and a very believable teenage kid who gets himself into the kind of trouble that makes him think about his life differently which is fun to read about and is fun and important and refreshingly un issue driven and cooky as heck Crawley is my sass idol, all my cynicism and grumpiness aspires to be in my old age His parent [...]

    I love Antsy I love his voice I love his humor mostly I love the lessons he learns Love his family and friends Love his adventures Just love him Glad there was a 3rd adventure I did have to FINALLY cave in and read the print I was holding out for the audio But luckily, I could hear Shusterman s narration in my head I can tell that Antsy is definitely older than the one we first met in Book 1 He has grown up, and he experiences older, teen things than he used to It works well Keeps him growing I [...]
