Publisher's Summary

There's only one rule in the race to find 39 Clues hidden around the world: Trust no one.

But when the hunt leads 14-year-old Amy Cahill and her younger brother, Dan, to Japan, their only chance to find the third Clue seems to lie with their unreliable uncle, Alistair Oh. Will they be foolish enough to make an alliance? With a Clue on the line, Amy and Dan might not have a choice. But in the Cahill family, trusting your relatives can get you killed.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Intriguing

If you loved the "National Treasure" movies you're gonna love this book. Listening in the car allows us to discuss the history and clues and to stop the tape from time to time to try to predict what will happen next. Audiobooks have been great for keeping our commutes free from arguments, increasing our vocabulary as well as our basis for learning literature. My kids loved this book and we are looking forward to the next one coming out in June.

just read it

i cannot comment on every writer individually because the books sort of ran together for me during a week trip. I read them all and cannot pinpoint every writer.
I can say that they were all wonderful and have great stories mixed with history and geography. They can teach in a great fun exciting atmosphere.

Entertainment at its best!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I'm a retired adult and I have so thoroughly enjoyed this series. I was skeptical at first because they were written by different authors, but it flowed so smoothly that you would not know it. It matters not what age you are, these stories are a wonderful escape and, for young minds (as well as older ones), the lessons are universal and timeless. It may have worked with any narrator, but David Pittu brought it alive. His ability to shift voices from the many characters in the books was mind-boggling. His Nelly was my all-time favorite.

What other book might you compare The 39 Clues, Book 3 to and why?

Listening and reviewing just one of the books doesn't do it justice. I would highly recommend the whole series be read from start to finish.

Have you listened to any of David Pittu’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

David Pittu makes it all come alive. I have not heard any of his other performances yet, but I plan to. This man is awesome.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Truly, I cannot look at any one book as a stand alone book. You need the whole series.

Any additional comments?

Great job and thank you to all of the contributors to this series, especially David Pittu for doing a one man show.

Disappointed...

Any additional comments?

I was really enjoying this series, and then got to this book. I enjoyed some of the (few and far in-between) action scenes… but that was about it. I felt bored compared to the other books. The story was overlong with the writer trying to get to the depths of everyone's TRUE motives and thoughts. While that can be nice sometimes, in a fast-paced children's series, it felt out of place. Changing it so one of the main characters suddenly stutters and has a love interest was also just… weird (to me, maybe somebody else loved it).<br/>Also, since it is a children's series, the language in this one also took me by surprise. I'm used to seeing/hearing cussing in adult, and even teen novels, but children's series? Again, out of place. <br/>I am going to stick with this series, though. I think having multiple authors and experiencing different writing styles is entertaining and enlightening. I just won't read another book by this particular author.

The 39 Clues, Book three

The 39 clues was a brilliant and thrilling book with lots of twists in the story.
It was exciting and gripping and really followed up to my expectations.
