This is an entertaining and fast paced story. It takes a few minutes to really get going but it is worth the wait with a lighthearted romp through everything you would expect from a school for budding evil geniuses.
Perfect listening for 10+ kids....the adventures of Otto Malpense - having been kidnapped and taken to HIVE, to be groomed as a world leader in villainy, kept us thoroughly entertained. I'm 43, my son is 12 and my daughter 10 but the differences in our ages didn't stop us all enjoying this book. Am definately downloading the next.

My boys are 7 and a half and 5, so I knew I was pushing it a bit getting this story.
My 5 yr old is well used to listening to "older" stories but this is probably a bit beyond him. He is however loving the idea of a school for BAD people with BAD teachers, and is getting quite a lot of the humour.
My 7 yr old is utterly gripped. When my IPOD crashed halfway through, he insisted on going back to the beginning again (we were 4 hrs through!) and constantly gripes about "getting the story on" the second we get in the car.
It is worth noting that there is mild swearing, although the words were not over emphasised or too aggressive. Annoyingly, my son has copied them. Sigh. There is also violence and peril, but entirely in context. It is, after all, a school for bad people with bad teachers.
