    " The Mysterious Benedict Society, Book #1, by Trenton Lee Stewart was an outstanding book. I am a one who loves mystery books. I absolutely loved that fact that this book kept me guessing. Usually in children's mystery books, I can predict what is coming next. Not in this book. I constantly had to keep reading because I just had to know what happened next. After reading the book I went onto the authors website for the book. It enhanced my understanding of the book. Some of the games on the website, were puzzle games, that showed how difficult all the problems were in the story. The characters solved puzzles and riddles just like the ones in the games! I could not do it, so obviously I wouldn't be in the Mysterious Benedict Society. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read the next book in the series! "

    " This was not at all what I expected. I imagine that if I were 25 years younger I would have loved it. It just kept reminding me of A Wrinkle in Time. I don't know why. They are quite different. Maybe it was the narrative style. Or the fact that some of the characters went by their full names. That's what irritated me about Wrinkle. It was always Charles Wallace this and Charles Wallace that. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 2/1/2014

    " Never finshed it. Got bored with the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 2/1/2014

    " Read this with my nine year old and we both loved it so much I actually felt sad when it was over, like saying goodbye to dear friends! Yay for sequels! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine Morton | 1/21/2014

    " Loved the tests to choose the right children! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Francesca Mccallum | 1/19/2014

    " This is one of the best books ever! The 4 kids who succeed amaze me so much: Constance Contraire, a 2 now 3 year old really impresses me of her crankiness and cleverness of a 3 year old. Reynard Mudloon and George Washington (Prefers Sticky Washington) are both awesome boys who think very fast. Kate Weatherhall (Prefers the great Kate Weather Machine) That was so cool book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Green | 1/17/2014

    " Not sure why, but I really was annoyed by the main characters and found this one really hard to get into. I'm not sure if my kids will want to read it, but I'm hoping that they don't so I don't have to sit through it. Or that they read it to themselves and I feel like I got my money's worth for having bought it and the sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 1/16/2014

    " I saw this one in a book store and immediately thought of my nephew. He read it and passed along all the subsequent books as well. A fun well-written series in the tradition of The Westing Game, if memory serves me. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 11/16/2013

    " Alright, the first book is better than the rest of the trilogy though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emilia | 11/8/2013

    " This is a pretty average three star only-you-particularly-special-children-can-save-the-world kind of book, except that it was funner than most. Well, it was. So, four stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kulsoom | 11/6/2013

    " Awesome for Lemony Snicket fans! I enjoyed reading it because I haven't read a children's book in so long and I learned a lot (and it also challenged my mind a tiny bit!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 10/25/2013

    " This was a fun and clean read, but a bit slow to get into. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindimsu92 | 10/13/2013

    " I read this book after my 8 year old daughter did. I found it entertaining. It was fun to tell her what part of the book I was at and watch her remembering the book all over again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackalacka | 9/13/2013

    " If you liked Series of Unfortunate Events, then you will like this. I've only read book #1 but it was a delightful escape. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn Thompson | 3/24/2013

    " This whole series is utterly charming. I love them. The humor is so great. The characters are like friends to me. Constance? So fun. Everyone should read these. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 2/14/2013

    " As an audio book, I certainly enjoyed listening to this but I found the story itself to be not as captivating as many would have me believe. I like the offbeat characters but the dastardly plot they foil was pretty out there and unexpected. Still, I'll probably listen to the next one too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Syahra Adzimi | 9/2/2012

    " Too Amazing. Asdfghjkl /can not explain this with words/ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Clapp-Work | 7/30/2012

    " I really liked this book. Good language and there were a couple cute twists that make you smile at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nardos | 6/16/2012

    " The best way to approach this book is with absolutely no expectations. Not that it isn't magnificent because it is. Because it's nothing like I've ever read. Its BRILLIANT & I didn't want it to end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtenay | 4/7/2012

    " Reading this book that was highly recommended to me by my son. It is a great book for pre-teens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha Yates | 9/23/2011

    " The story was fun, adventurous & for the most part intriguing! It was a bit lengthy & I felt some stuff could have been omitted!! I would have enjoyed it more if it were only 250 pages rather than 500 which is the only reason I have it 3 stars!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krystal Givens | 7/5/2011

    " These series was soo amazing that I couldn't stop reading them! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 5/25/2011

    " One of my students recommended this one to me. It was a decent, but sometimes slow, read. I don't feel compelled to continue reading the series, though. I could see this series appealing to those who enjoy the Series of Unfortunate Events. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassie | 5/23/2011

    " Slow beginning, but it picked up and I ended up enjoying the book. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lin | 5/20/2011

    " Very good book! It doesn't hit my age group exactly, but I still find interest in the thought-provoking riddles! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 5/18/2011

    " It was so exciting!!! I LOVED everything about it. It was amazing and there was action at every corner. If you like adventure you NEED to read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremysparks | 5/18/2011

    " I got this book from Hannah, and it is definetly in her age group. The storyline goes astray at times, but its easy to read and somewhat enjoyable at times. Id encourage this for the 10 year old set. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melinda | 5/18/2011

    " I just finished listening to this with the kids and we loved it, we had so much fun with it and hated to have to turn it off when they got to school. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 5/18/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scout | 5/16/2011

    " This was one of the best books I have read. A bunch of genious kids have to stop an evil mastermind who plans on brain washing everyone. Filled with humor and suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ivy | 5/14/2011

    " I enjoyed this book. I love guessing mysteries. I felt like I was part of the book, and I was guessing what would happen next. I'm looking forward to read the sequels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 5/13/2011

    " There was so many twist and turns it was great. If you now how crazy I am for Harry Potter this will be a little shock. I think this book came in 2nd place (all the Harry Potter's first). So great book. "
