See a Problem?
Jason and his friends are good, the bullies are bad. Jason, the Bug and their mismatched hover car are constantly beset by obstacle after obstacle, but none of it feels overdone or ridiculous. When this book was first released, it was done for free online and in installments.
And it says something amazing about the book when Disney picked up the rights to it without all the installments even out! But the entire world and intricate detail Reilly put into this was awesome to read. This is a fantastic book that can be read in a few sittings and leave you with the warm fuzzies.
Reviewed for A Drop of Romeo Simply wow. Amazing plot, impossible technology and unimaginable racing brought to life in wonderful novel. It takes great imagination to unfurl the story in the mind to understandable level and enjoy it. Matthew Reilly magic really works with the adrenaline rush matching with Schofield and Jack West adventures!
Light, enjoyable, fast-paced fun. It's almost breath-taking how economical Reilly's writing is in this book.
All extraneous fluff has been removed. He just gives you the interesting bits. Read it. Jan 30, Gopal rated it it was amazing.
My go to book for reading whenever I want to read about the underdog overcoming tremendous odds to triumph in the end. I don't know what is it about this story that draws me in, but the challenges faced by Jason Chaser on his quest to become a professional hover car racer has always left me feeling in the end, if only MR wrote a sequel to this book. I've read this a few times now and yet each time I feel like I'm reading for the first time. I like the pace of the story and the fact that putting it down is virtually impossible as you just want to know what happens next.
Aug 06, Radar rated it really liked it. Dec 29, Sami rated it it was amazing. Love this book! May 17, B. An excellent example of a really well written story based on a mediocre idea. Jul 26, Derek rated it really liked it. Not as good as some of his other work but I still really enjoyed it.

Always good to go back and visit Jason Chaser. Such a cute book and characters! Feb 13, Ajay Venkat rated it liked it. This book is based in the future and is about a time when hover cars are invented. The novel, as the book title suggests, is about Hover Car Racing, a sport developed in the early 21st century. The fictional technology of hover cars relies on the magnetic field of the Earth, counter-balancing it to create an ultra-fast, new type of transport.
The blurb has a right start, by mentioning the below: Now he has won a place at the world-famous International Race School- and the chance to become a professional hover car racer.
But someone is determined to stop him. And with the sabotage attempts getting more extreme he must outwit his enemy at every twist and turn. This is the story of Jason Chaser, a talented young racer selected to attend the Race School. He's younger than the other students.
He's smaller. His trusty car, the Argonaut, is older. But Jason Chaser is no ordinary racer. And as he races against the best drivers in the world he will learn that at Race School winning is everything, that not everyone in this world fights fair, and that you never ever have any friends on the track.
In the most important race of his life, one that could win him a place at the International Race School, Jason Chaser has an unfortunate accident. In spite of continuing on and refusing to give in, Jason comes last. But his determination has caught the eye of someone who matters, named Scott Syracuse, a former racer, and Jason soon finds himself on his way to the school and in training to become a top class hover car racer.
At the race school Jason trains with his little brother Bug, his navigator and his new friend and mech-chief Sally. The trio is determined to make their mark at the race school and in the wider world of racing, but they are up against some pretty stiff competition.
They will have some pretty big battles to fight, both on and off the track. They also face off with many sabotage attempts that sometimes actually worked , which they have to deal with immediately; otherwise, their race is over. Will they be able to achieve their dreams?
Well, you just have to read the book to figure out. I am absolutely speechless about how good this book has turned out to be. The book convincingly drags me straight into the action, with a fiercely gripping chapter every single time.
I would personally recommend this book to a teenage group years old , due to the fact that I feel when you are at this age, you will be able to deeply enjoy the tightly packed action and yet, really understand the meaning behind their language.
There is a mild use of bad language here and there, but if you are old enough to handle it, then you are free to go and read this book. Good, in fact Very Good luck in finishing this book, as it is pages long, though it is definitely worth it, in my opinion. A Masterpiece of a Book! If you want more action, you can also wait for the movie to be released, as Disney are planning on starting the production of the movie. It is just as fast-paced as his other books, though with less blood, gore and swearing.
Originally released in various free instalments on the internet in , Hover Car Racer was published in paperback in This is definitely one of its strengths, and you cannot help but cheer for Jason not just during the races, but any time they come out on top over one of their many nasty rivals; along with his teammates, his brother the Bug as the navigator, and Sally McDuff as the mec chief.
I must also admit that there were fun details that I had completely forgotten about and got to relive again. This book will have you pumping your fist in the air. Multiple times. I highly recommend it, regardless of your age. Nov 10, Ben Langdon rated it liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.
Hover Car Racer
I admire Reilly's method for writing this - a return to serials aimed at the internet consumer. The story is not grounded in any kind of reality. A reader needs to be able to suspend belief in science fiction, yes, and Reilly does manage to describe advanced technology well.
He is fourteen in the beginning, celebrating his fifteenth birthday in the middle of the book, but he is able to out perfor I admire Reilly's method for writing this - a return to serials aimed at the internet consumer.
He is fourteen in the beginning, celebrating his fifteenth birthday in the middle of the book, but he is able to out perform every single other racer in the book, including racers who are described as racing the perfect race, or others who are current world champions having years of experience , and others still who are cardboard cut-out villains more interested in trying to kill him than win races.
In fact, the desperate need of nearly everyone in the book to kill Jason is probably the book's downfall for me.
There is no real reason to want to blow him up, cut him down or otherwise try to crash his car. There is also no evidence of any kind of surveillance system or security system in place for such a world class race. How can saboteurs continue to sneak in and fiddle with engines, place bombs and otherwise do dastardly bad things? I assume the book is aimed at young readers. It's his only labelled children's book - but I don't think it's really well delivered.
Condescending, perhaps. Can a reader, even a young one, actually enjoy reading about a character with no flaws, with superficial threats and natural ability to outclass every single opponent? I don't think so. On the plus side - yes there are plusses here - Reilly continues to write a fast paced tale.
His use of onomatopoeia, run-on sentences, single word sentences and other cinematic devices makes for a fast and fun read in most places. I'd love a bit more thought and care for the development of the characters. I know, I know, that's almost a running joke with Matthew Reilly.
They tend to be described in a very superficial and stereotypical manner. There's talk of a Hovercar Racer II and I hope it develops Jason a bit more, maybe give him some real failures to build him up a bit, instead of the endless string of "Is he going to win???? Is he??? Probably should be two. Quick read. Reilly novels are full of action and suspense and Hover Car adds a huge helping of sentiment I got choked up several times and leaked maybe a tear or two.
The author writes stories of freakin' HUGE scale that would use tons of effects and CGI, and if the scripts stay true to the novels, they would wow audiences for sure! Hover Car Racer is one of the larger scale novels that would use more effects than most Reilly books - and that's saying something! Plus, a story that stays with you long after you finish. You can't help loving the main characters, especially the brothers.
With the right casting, Jason Chaser hover car racer!
Rhymes, kinda cheesy, and I kinda love it , and his brother, "the bug", could make the careers of two young actors. Even if we never see "based on the novel by Matthew Reilly" on the big screen, his novels are not to be missed. Hover Car Racer would be an excellent start of you're new to his works, or a shameful oversight of you read Reilly , but skipped what you thought was a "kid's book". I will read anything he writes, in order of publication, without bothering to read a synopsis or any other reviews.
Hover Car Racer Pdf
I trust him to never disappoint me, and he never has! If your a fan of Matthew Reilly you won't be disappointed. These are his earlier books but they are just as fun.
For those unfamiliar with his style his books are probably written for 14 year old boys but can be enjoyed by anyone looking for a fun ride. Some of the action scenes are ridiculous to the point of being silly but that's the fun. As an adult I would describe it as a guilty pleasure sort of read. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I have read this book a few times and although I have the Paperback version my kindle is king so time to add this to the library. I enjoyed it yet again, it is a very positive book and great for Kids and Adults alike.
The story moves quickly as do all Matthew Reilly's books and whilst you know what the end result is going to be it is still very hard to work out how it will be achieved as Matthew Reilly is a devious writer constantly springing surprises on the reader. If you are an F1 fan then this book will make sense One of my most favorite books!!
I keep it reading it again and again.. Love it.. Love it!! I love Matthew Reilly's books: And if he's a young guy with his younger brother against greedy mean men it's even more fun. Another great ready by Matthew Reilly. I thought this may be a bit of a kids book but I enjoyed it none the less. Like Troll Mountain I plan to read this again with my kids as it's great for all ages. This was the best action book I have read, I had trouble putting it down.
Matthew Reilly sure can write a brilliant story. See all 19 reviews.
