  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 1/26/2014

    " Not as compelling as the other 2. The main mystery involves some over-the-top complicated type of word clues that I found very distracting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/21/2014

    " This book absoloutely rocked. It was quick and suspenseful action. The series does not take a wrong turn with this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 1/13/2014

    " Fun stuff! This is the third in the series I've read this summer. This one is not as good as two, but close to or better than one. Relentless action-adventure. I love how Higson let's you into young Bond's mind. Makes him feel real. Also how he is slowly starting to get James to charm the ladies almost effortlessly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mahnur | 1/4/2014

    " The best one in the series hands down!! "

    " Full of suspense, loved the book so much. Cant say one thing about it, all of the details lead to a spoiler....... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 10-11Randall | 8/17/2013

    " I thought that it was a really Good book Because in most series someone helps the main character out in one book but you don't hear of them again, "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trent | 4/7/2013

    " The third book got back on track. I liked the way this story leaned more towards the mental development of the character with thoughtful puzzles that needed to be solved. "

    " It was So incredibly thrilling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MizziQ | 9/25/2012

    " This was my favorite of the books on young James Bond. It pretty much has the same buildup as all the others but it has a cooler plot. If you haven't read the previous ones this could get confusing though... backtrack to the other ones...then read this. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lainie | 8/24/2012

    " Another of James Bond's exciting adventures! A very exciting story - I couldn't put it down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi Bell | 8/16/2012

    " I just plain did not like this book. The first part of it was very good and suspenseful, but it got to complicated for even me to follow (this is a juvenile book) in the end. It is gory and violent in places. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 12/11/2011

    " These books are cool. They are action adventure stories for boys, with the greatest spy ever as the main character. Of course, he is just a schoolboy at Eton in these stories. Set in the 1930s, young James and his friends solve word clues to discover the whereabouts of one of their professors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gillian | 9/12/2011

    " A fast paced romp through the world of espionage. I like his style, just must be careful not to try to make to so fantastic as to find it hard to believe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 S Pat | 8/15/2011

    " Just a fun, smart summer read. Perfect for a pre-teen kid, therefore perfect for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick | 7/14/2011

    " It is an engaging quick read about James Bond as a student at Eton. I made it over halfway through the book in one sitting. Very engaging. Loved the characters and the pace of the action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick | 1/11/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katniss | 9/12/2010

    " Wow. I can't believe that Charlie Higson has once again managed to make a sequel that was better the the last one. Amazing, and in true James Bond form, action packed. Fabulous! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Simon | 2/19/2010

    " My favourite of the Young Bond Series, because it is as much about brain power as about action and adventure. Bring on the cryptic crossword as a plot device! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 7/12/2009

    " This is my favorite of this series so far! I liked all the cryptic word puzzles in it and of course, there's endless amounts of action as well as gruesome medical oddities at a Surgeons' museum. And the new addition of a strong capable girl character... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 12/29/2008

    " Great guy book - James Bond as a kid with lots of action and adventure. This series is similar to the Alex Rider rider series but with fewer gadgets and more political messages. "
