Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is a classic. This is definitely one classic that won't put teens to sleep. Its quick and rhyming pace and interesting plot set this story apart from other classics. The dynamic main character, named Faust, and his deal with the devil, takes the reader on a long ride through the human soul. Originally a German story, this book has been translated into Old English. This gives the story an older and more sophisticated feel to it. Goethe is described as a great author and poet and this story is just another example of that

The Hunchback Assignments by Arthur Slade is an inventive tale. Think about the hunchback of Notre Dame and 007 rolled into one. This story is filled with twists and turns and life threatening violence. A Mad Doctor and a few cybernetic enemies make this book very entertaining. What makes this story stand out is its main character, Modo. His beginnings may have been dismal but thanks to a mysterious mentor and his bodyguard His future has never looked brighter. I recommend this book to anyone looking to spice up their day with a few thrills.
