It really seemed made up, and badly. The first book was so amazing! How exhausted she is! But once he gets a chance, all that intelligence starts to shine through once again.

The book begins roughly 5 months after the events of Evil Genius. A really good thing in this case. The paced was at a nice speed for me to understand what was going on and the scenes were great.

The reason it’s four stars instead of five is because the turn towards a scarier apprehensive and startling type scary story caught me off guard. The book gets a little boring at times, especially when Jinks spend a lot of paragraphs talking about hacking which is definitely not as entertaining as, but definitely more realistic than, hacking montages in movies or TV series.


Tja und Cadel, der Hauptcharakter, ist ja sowieso mein Liebling geworden. For gods sakes, don’t give him a home and a stable life until the very end! She became a writer because she loves reading, and also loves history, films, TV and gossip.

Though it contains more computer and hacking references than its prequel, that doesn’t deduct from its appeal. Catherins since Prosper has not been captured, this means that I get to enjoy a third book by this wonderful woman so, when genuus comes down to it, I have no complaints. But more importantly, Cadel is now beginning to think about other people besides himself–at least part of the time.

The story jikns up pretty cleanly with Cadel moving in with Saul and Fiona and usually I have a problem with that kind of sickly sweet Kodak moment, but in this case I thought it was completely appropriate. So, I liked this one. Cadel has had almost no one in his life besides Sonja whose opinion he really cares about. He’s a genius with a warped upbringing that left him pretty arrogant and isolated.

This time it is not so much about Cadel and his genius strategies as it is about Cadel trying to gejius his dark side and unintentionally walking right into a trap.

Genius Squad

Feb 13, Max added it. It is as he is waiting that the Genius Squad approaches him. I saw the ending from a ways away and, while I’m happy for Cadel, I was wishing catheriine would be cagherine more unique. Less villain and more ‘I don’t want to upset the adults’ in this book, definitely, which is a bit disappointing for me personally. I feel like it has a great depth of emotional realism.

Catherine Jinks’s Genius Squad was a good way to wrap up the year–some light, silly fun. Villain Prosper English is in jail but refuses to acknowledge Cadel as his son.


Am I just into torturing myself? Refresh and try again. He has police protection because he is a threat to Prospe This is by far my favorite book in the series. His skills in computers is amazing, and he might even prove the a fake gene mapping company is cheating clients out of their money. Oh my effing god. jinke

Genius Squad (Genius, #2) by Catherine Jinks

Jun 14, Becky rated it really liked it. The book was good, but admittedly I liked Cadel more when he was manipulating people.

Either way, it wasn’t exactly endearing when most of Cadel’s screen time is spent trying to analyze things and use his mathematical skills to solve odds and logic, etc. She has a BA Hons in medieval history and gets her ideas from everywhere, particularly good science fiction films.

It’s just a general trend catnerine the massive amount of events that occur in these books. The Genius books are a lot of fun–the characters are wildly intelligent and social stunted, leading to crazy pranks, fights and conversations.

Never hinks to spoil the suspense by brother kept quiet but heh I was right. I got through this book basically wondering why I’d read it. He developed a conscience over the course of Evil Genius, catherone he spends most of Genius Squad struggling with it:
