    "Fun story about adventure and intrigue"

    It got really engaging towards the end, but the being was a little slow. Also, I didn't love the performance, because most of the characters sounded very whiny.

    "DaVinci Code for young teens"

    Fun mystery, great humor, intriguing plot. A bit adolescent at times, but entertaining for a short road trip with your kids.

    "My kids enjoy them, but I can't stand these books"

    We listen to audiobooks in the car on the way to and from school. My kids like the 39 Clues books, but I have to put earplugs in or I become a seething rage-monster. The characters are flat, the story is astonishingly implausible (every famous person in history was a member of the Cahill family? Really? Really?!?), and it reeks of shady marketing. (Go to the website! Sign up for the mailing list! Play the games! Take the personality quiz! Collect the cards! Use secret codes for bonus content!) It's disgusting.

    It also annoys me that it borrows so heavily from Harry Potter, although that seems to be the case with every young adult series of the last decade. Orphans who live with an aunt who mistreats them find out that they're really members of a secret and powerful family that has four branches, each with its own logo and distinct characteristics. The Lucian branch of the Cahill family is pretty much interchangeable with Slytherin House at Hogwarts. There's more, but you get the gist of it.

    Fortunately for me, my kids like but don't LOVE the books, so I've been able to steer them towards stories that we all can enjoy.

    "Great book for anyone"

    While thid is a mystery book I think it's great for anyone even if they don't like mysteries so long as you're up for the long series. It's a quick read, you could get at least 3 of the books read in one day if you really wanted to. With the main characters young kids, it's perfect for children but also great for young adults. The series is written by several different authors, Rick Riordan known author of several series including the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. This is very different from his usual works yet like always very well written. The ending is a bit confusing but does lead us into a bit of Grace's life and where the story could lead. I don't know how long the series is, but I can't wait to read the next book.

    "We were in Boston and started this on a trip"

    Even my eight year old liked it! Made the trip to Legoland so much better and traffic was tolerable with a fun book to listen to! Riordan makes great characters and writes much like James Patterson in that the action is fast-paced and hooks you!
