    " Cleverly written with great characters. Plenty of movement and action. I can not wait to read the the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 2/16/2014

    " This children's book was much better than I expected. I couldn't put it down. It was fast paced and fun to read. It is not completely unpredictable, and it takes a while for the characters to develop. It is a bit more unbelievable than other children's books I've read - the younger kids were able to fool their au pair to take them to Europe and not check with the legal guardian first. Now I have read enough that I want to see how it ends and what the treasure is at the end of the 39 Clues. "

    " I started listening to the audio version of this book, but it lost my attention. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Athalvard | 2/4/2014

    " I started reading this because my little brother had just read the first few and was in love with them. They are surprisingly good; I've read the first 3 so far, and they combine a good set of characters with around-the-world adventures and a not-just-for-little-kids kind of plot. They are not the most challenging books for me, but they are enjoyable and funny, and I will plan on reading the others in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 1/26/2014

    " Action packed and educational to boot. Great young person read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy Tibbels | 1/14/2014

    " This kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I definitely need to continue on with the series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yuki | 12/20/2013

    " I realy think the book was realy good but the age is high for 3grade and the book is full of action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kilee | 11/12/2013

    " Very entertaining for a kids book. I will get them for my classroom for my students to read! My only grievance was how often he used the word "said". I wished he had mixed it up a little more with replied, cried, etc. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie Rand | 9/29/2013

    " Totally plot driven. Not that great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhiannon | 9/21/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan Martinez | 9/17/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelby Schlaud | 7/13/2013

    " Awesome ,exciting but also a little sad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mona | 7/10/2013

    " Davinci Code for Young People! I really enjoyed this and had to stop myself from reading ahead of my 3rd grader. Nice detail, fun story, if slightly unbelievable. The kids can solve the mystery in each one! We didn't go online, but I see the appeal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 7/4/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caitlin | 3/21/2012

    " It was an interesting plot that I have not seen before, but it was not memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari Jennifer | 1/9/2012

    " It was hard to follow, but you'll soon get the hang of it. I rated it only 3 stars, because it started to get boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nate | 12/24/2011

    " I thought that this book is one of the best books ever!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsten | 8/29/2011

    " Ok. I read it a long time ago. Story line gets boring rather quickly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alesia | 8/25/2011

    " Not my usual genre...but it is a good story and kept me guessing. The end was great because it held my interest and made me want to read the rest. Also, this series intrigues me because apparently each book is written by a different author. Fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 5/25/2011

    " So suspensful and inticing. Like {Inter}National Treasures. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Honeybee | 5/23/2011

    " I liked the premise of these books, linking reading with the Internet, yet I just couldn't get into this book. Maybe kids find them to be more interesting? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deana | 5/21/2011

    " I can't wait to read the next one...now, I'm really curious about what this big secret is! "

    " It was a fun idea, but not very well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/19/2011

    " I originally bought and read this book to test it out for my nephew, it was a really good book, he loved it so I guess I will be buying and reading the rest of them too, I think most kids would really enjoy them. Love the covers! "

    " It had some interesting facts in it. I was disappointed that only 1 clue was found in this book. I don't think I would want to read 39 of these. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 5/7/2011

    " This is a fun book and I would recommend for kids. Very exciting and leaves you wanting to read more of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 5/2/2011

    " Much fun. If you enjoyed The Lightning Thief, this is similarly paced. Fast, fun, and accessible for even reluctant readers. Now on to book 2... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 5/2/2011

    " suspensful; good read for childrn and adults "
