Oct 16, Devin Milliron rated it it was amazing. I really liked this book. The first one was fun and surprisingly well-written. This one was even better. I especially liked the familiar setting of BYU. Since the characters were closer to my age this time, I really became involved in a way I never could with the first book. The moral lessons taught were incredibly insightful and true.
I found myself thinking about my own problems as the main character was dealing with his. Besides that, the action was great, the plot fun, and the characters I really liked this book.

Besides that, the action was great, the plot fun, and the characters intriguing. I really love these books now and it will be hard not to finish the rest of them.

I wish this book was longer because I think Chris Heimerdinger could have throw in more small problems so the book could get longer. I want to tell you about what happens in this book but I do not want to give away any thing so I will try to tell you what happened with out making it boring to read. In the book the main chacter Jim Hawkins. Interacts with the ancient people of america and some of the most dangeous men from the whole Book of Morman, a LDS book of scpiture, Jim who is at school at BYU goes home for the hoildays and is attacked. By the Gadiantons and asked where he put the sword he tells them he does not know where it is.

I thought this book a good sequel. I was shocked that it had the main characters from the first book being so much older. And since I was 11 or 12 and reading about college-aged students, I felt rather distanced from the characters. I also remember having such a dark feeling from this book--so much evil involved and how the characters were affected by it. I think it may have been a good lesson to my young self: don't even go near evil, for its effects will manifest themselves in and around you I thought this book a good sequel.

I'm 70 pages into it and the author is throwing out Mormon culture references as if saying that it's LDS fiction isn't enough to establish that it's LDS fiction. If you want a good story, stick with Lord of the Rings--this book is obviously modeled on a borrowed plot with very poor execution. The fact that this averages 4. View all 4 comments. Mar 19, Christina rated it liked it Shelves: children-read-aloud , teen. This is not really for kids, since some of the themes are quite mature for them and the main characters are college students.
The kids generally enjoyed it but were less than enthusiastic about the romantic elements, which fortunately were few :. Feb 27, Chad rated it really liked it Shelves: lds. The second book in the tennis shoes series, this book is a good change from going back to the time of the nephites, to remaining in present times and having a group of gadianton thugs as the protagonists.
I believe it is the only one in our series set entirely in the present day, but it still brings the nephites to life. Apr 06, Becky rated it it was amazing Shelves: young-adult , fantasy , lds-fiction , adventure , time-travel , jello-summerchallenge , deseret.
Those had quite an impact on me back in the day. I think this one holds up even better than the first one. It's more grounded and shows increased maturity from the writer.

Jul 08, Jill rated it really liked it. I listened to this many years ago with my parents and siblings and loved the adventure and suspense. Listening to it this last week or two with my children, the suspense was as pulsating as it was then. But I'm someone who is able and ready to suspend reality and jump into a story - unless the kissing and swearing is liberally spread just to be there and not to move things along.
This book didn't have those problems.

Thank goodness. I love this sequel to Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites. If you do I listened to this many years ago with my parents and siblings and loved the adventure and suspense. If you do not know terminology from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - both doctrinal and cultural and please don't mistake the one for the other , this book is going to be a bit like a foreign language to you. Those terms are familiar to me so I was fine.
My kids weren't so we had many discussions about what was real, what is really in the Book of Mormon, what about questions and church history and many more. It was a good experience and they loved it as much as I did. I appreciate the differences in all the characters - Jim's more than occasional ambivalence to what is important to others, Garth's unshakable faith, Renee's encouragement, Jenny's personality and all the side characters in between every twist and turn of the plot.
Is this doctrine? But it's an enjoyable tale with elements of history and scripture and one of my favorite descriptions of faith in fictional literature. Feb 24, Macy Alexander rated it really liked it. Plot: Jim, Jennifer, and Garth are all grown up now and have their own lives.
Their past adventures still linger in their minds, and they think about it all the time. They go on another adventure in the jungles of mexico. They are braver and more courageous than ever. They embark on their journey to save something from people of the past. Character: Jim has changed a lot and is different than Garth.
