    Once Amy and Dan Cahill's choice was simple - take a million dollars or the first of 39 Clues that lead to the source of unimaginable power. Now it's clear that the hunt for Clues is bigger than anything that Amy and Dan could ever have imagined.

    What made the experience of listening to The 39 Clues, Book 10 the most enjoyable?

    I got into this series quite accidentally, ordering the first of the series without realizing it was a 10-parter. Overall, I have enjoyed it and I'm no kid. But a wonderful choice for families who can ejoy listening together. Some parts of the series are stronger than others, but overall, it held my attention.

    On the other hand, I'm unlikely to go forward with the sequel that starts with book 11.


    What about David Pittu???s performance did you like?

    Readers of all 10 parts were solid

    Geiger has a gift: he knows a lie the instant he hears it. And in his business - called "information retrieval" by its practitioners - that gift is invaluable, because truth is the hottest thing on the market. Geiger's clients count on him to extract the truth from even the most reluctant subjects. Unlike most of his competitors, Geiger rarely sheds blood, but he does use a variety of techniques - some physical, many psychological - to push his subjects to a point where pain takes a backseat to fear. Because only then will they finally stop lying.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not sure what I was expecting, but found this book rather dull.


    Would you recommend The Inquisitor to your friends? Why or why not?

    Considering all that's out there to read, I wouldn't waste your time on this one.


    Did The Inquisitor inspire you to do anything?

    About all I can say is that I didn't find him as vile as I thought I would.

    More than 20 New York Times best-selling authors team up to create a first-rate serial novel -- a collaboration that combines the skills of America’s greatest storytellers to produce a gripping, spellbinding mystery.

    Carrie says: "Not as good as expected"
    "Worth your time"
    Overall

    Don't be turned off by those who complain about too many voices disrupting the flow of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Some chapters were better than others, but it all hung together well and I'm glad I made the decision to buy this one. It was a good listen with a good twist that I certainly didn't see coming.
