    "2nd great Jake Ransom Book - Where is the Third?"
    Would you listen to Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx again? Why?

    yup - I would. Jake Ransom books are a wonderful tale - based on Jr high and Sr High Kids. They use their brains to over come problems and work together using everyone's strengths to create a great team that actually care for each other and get the Job Done. Refreshing in this day and age. Touch of History, Touch of Science fiction.


    What other book might you compare Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx to and why?

    Alfred Hitchcock's Three Investigator Series. Group of Kids use their heads to solve mysteries and outwit adult foes at their own game. Great outcomes. Great Mystery.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Jake's Sister sword fighting with the attacking Cactus.


    Any additional comments?

    when is the third book coming out? I can't wait.

    "A fun listen"

    I'm a James Rollins fan and from the very begnning he authored some pretty wild stuff but I enjoyed the reads. This is a children's book which made me realize that I must still be in touch with my "inner child". A little light hearted fantasy is good for the soul from time to time. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
