Now the entire city stands on the brink of total infestation. They find somthing and it is huge and if you want to know then you need to read the book it is really good. My favirote part was when his dad belived in him because it would be sad not having your dad belive in you. I would recommend this book to 6th graders and some 7th graders. Back when this book was first published I must have read it half a ddozen times and Paul Zindel has become one of my favourite childhood authors.

His books were spooky enough for me to want to read over and over again without getting tired of them. Since It's been a decade since I read this one though I really wanted to read it again. Sometimes I just get struck by the feeling that I have to read some childhood favourites every once in awhile. It's nice to sit back, relax and let nostalgia take Back when this book was first published I must have read it half a ddozen times and Paul Zindel has become one of my favourite childhood authors.

Night of the Bat
I really enjoyed reading this book again. I thought that despite all the new books out on the market that this one can still stand up to the competition though I believe it is now out of print. It's got adventure, death and a monsterously large bat that used to be a human that kills people! What more could a kid boys especially want in a book? The only thing I didn't like about the book was Jake's father he really ticked me off.
I didn't care for the way he spoke and treated his son. Though Jake is 15 he is still a child and I think that by not even welcoming his son or not even giving him so much as a hello hug really irked me. However I can see how this adds to the story and readers can connect to that sort of relationship if they infact have that sort of strained and forced relationship with their parent s.
I highly recommend this as a must read for kids 10 - 12 years of age. Especially young boys because they'll really enjoy this story of one boy's triumph over the evil giant bat of the Amazon. Dec 06, Kala Lash rated it it was amazing. This book fallows 15 year old Jake through the Brazilian rain forest as he is in fear of his dad being in great danger. The conflict begins when Jake discovers the winged beast victims and almost becomes one of them.
I think the purpose of this story is to entertain by telling a story and making it feel real. The way you are put into Jake's shoes makes this very entertaining this really pushes me to believe that the authors purpose is to night of the bat is a very well wrote book by Paul Zindel.

The authors style in "night of the bat" is first person narrative, I say this because the book is narrative but puts you in the main character Jake's shoes. I think this book is very entertaining and i would recomend to any of my friends to grab and read. All i have to say is grab this great book at your locl library and read!

Jake goes to spend time with his scientist father who is researching bats in the Amazon. Shortly after he arrives, Jake is showing a worker his electronic Gizmo that can "see" through the rainforest with echolocation, and they find the bodies of two missing workers. Soon, giant rabid attack bats are taking down workers, and according to the wisdom of the natives, the bite of these bats does horrible things to the victims, so they must be killed.
Can Jake use his technology to protect his father Jake goes to spend time with his scientist father who is researching bats in the Amazon. Can Jake use his technology to protect his father against this creature, and prove his usefulness? Fast paced adventure and gore. Hyperion, please reissue these all!

A warning for the more faint of heart, though: It's also very descriptive, it doesn't shy away from explaining--in detail--all of the blood and gore that abound. Oct 03, Zeandre added it.
This was a pretty decent book however it lacked the elements of a good horror book. It's basically meant for those that can't handle a lot of violence. I've read many Paul Zindel books in my day but I'm afraid in this writing, it looks to me as if he wasn't trying with this book. Not one of his best books overall but I wouldn't call this book terrible either.
Apr 03, Primadonna rated it liked it Shelves: Have mixed feelings about it. Pretty gory and creepy for teenagers' read. Yet some things made me think I mean, where did the giant bat come from? How come he's alone? And can you really find orangutan in jungles in Java? Jan 08, Amanda added it.
If you are in to terror books this a good one to read. Apr 14, Riss rated it really liked it. All of these books are completely ridiculous.
