To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
the book is a part of the adventure series. A competition is held to make a team to complete a dangerous mission. The four children are selected to perform the mission. All of them had their own specialties. They formed a team called the Mysterious Benedict Society with Rynie as their leader. Other members were Kate, Sticky, Constance. They solved the mysteries that came in their mission . Finnaly they destroyed Whisperor to save the whole world.
The best book I have ever read. In this you will find how to think in a different way, how to learn new ways of utilising new information and to resist the bad thoughts, it just changed my thought process after reading the book nice twists and shows teamwork I love this book.
Kids absolutely loved it! There were fun discussions on the table and involving conversations about the plot or even predictions about whats going to happen. Like I said for the Sequels of this book, This is a great series and kids will devour this book.
Funny and adventurous, didn't let my kids put it down. My 15 yr old and 10 yr old have read it multiple times and would like to read it again in the future. Every time they read it , They loved it!!
Brilliant book. My 12-year-old son loved it (he usually reads teen fiction and war stories!) and recommended that we read it at bedtime to his 8-year-old brother, who now also loves it and often laughs aloud at the language and events. It's funny, exciting, unusual, gripping and very well written. In fact I found it such a great story that I just had to cheat and read to the end on my own one night! I found the Americanisms grating occasionally, but not too often. Can't wait to read the others in the series.
While other reviews have already said this, I wanted to add another vote of 5 stars for a superb adventure book. As an adult who enjoys reading to her children, it was great to find a book that we both could thoroughly enjoy. Several nights my daughter even asked if she could go to bed a little early and have a "double chapter night". Rare stuff and high praise indeed. The language is quirky and unique in style but easy to read aloud and follow. The tale itself unfolds at a perfect pace and balances action with plenty of human content which helps builds the characters and scenery beautifully. The details of the surroundings, thoughts and emotions of the characters and their growing relationships are never cut short to make way for clever puns or flashy action. This depth of plot and character helps it stand out from many children's books that seem to rely on cheap toilet humour gags or obvious puns to keep the reader entertained. I like a funny kid's book as much as the next person, but very ready for a break and something that felt exciting but also a little more "grown up" for my nine year old. This has all the excitement and nostalgia of a Willard Price (remembered with rose tinted glasses of childhood) and teamwork of an Enid Blyton brought up to date. By the end of the tale I had already ordered the next in the series and happy to say that is it equally as exciting.
Excellent book, best book I have read in a long time. I know it's aimed at children but I am 42 and loved it. It is like a classic children's book, eccentric, moralistic, gripping and lots of fun. I recommend it for all ages and have just ordered the sequel :).
One of the best children's book: it raises profound philosophical questions similar to the ones in 1984, Brave New World and many more. At the same time it introduces wonderfully brave children who grapple with the most serious questions of friendship, faithfulness, promises, resilience and fear. All of these plus exciting adventures!
I bought this for an 8 year old girl who is an advanced reader and loves different books. She utterly loved htis book and it will be on my list of books to buy for children aged 9-10 years. It is quite a think book, so it does require a reader with a certain level of stamina to udnertake this book. I think many younger children might be put off by the size of the book.
