Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good read for several age groups My kids decided to buy 39 Clue books with their gift money. They were reading through them quite quickly so I thought I would give them a quick read to see what they were excited about. I was pleasantly surprised at how entertaining they were even for an adult. I grew up on Hardy Boys. The 39 Clues are a modern action mystery story that may not be as mature as the Hardy Boys is certainly fun for the family to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 39 clues: One False note Book Two To me, this book was really good. It had most of the things I liked. This book has: suspense, mystery and action (stuff blowing up). There is also more than in every book. Sometimes there are more than that. ( What I mean is every chapter is from a different point of view). This makes the story so that you can have a pretty accurate guess for who is who ( there are always mystery characters). This makes it so that you can predict what will happen. Though this is pretty rare, ( there are a lot of unexpected turns) you can not read their minds, you can only guess. You can also figure out who the villains are and what they can do before the characters. This makes it much more interesting. Overall it is the best book in the series ((in my opinion) currently).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One False Note A great follow-up to The Maze of Bones, building on the same energy and increasing the momentum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous Much as book 1, Maze of Bones, focused on the life and times of Benjamin Franklin, book 2, One False Note, focuses on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his sister Nannerl. Continuing almost immediately after book one, the pace of this one is much quicker. Moving from Paris to Vienna, the Cahill kids, Dan, Amy and their chaperon are ambushed by the big burly Holt clan. Narrowly escaping them, the dangers from other family members only intensifies. With more bombs, boat crashes, and run-ins with everyone from their aunts, uncles and cousins to Benedictine monks, this book is one wild chase scene. The adventures in this book take our trio from Paris to Vienna then onto Salzburg then finally Venice. This book not only has a faster pace than book one, but also more dialogue. Some of that may be due to the writing style of the different authors, and some the point in the story arch and plot development. Gordon Korman does an excellent job continuing from the story started by Rick Riordan in Book 1.The transition is almost effortless. The feel is slightly different but the story continues to flow well. It is interesting reading a series of 10 books with seven different authors, in part because we do not know how much freedom each author has. Do they write their section and hand it off and the next author has to create from there, or is there an overarching story arc already sketched out and the authors are composing the different scenes as movements in a musical piece? Either way this book is excellent and like the first leaves the reader hungry for more. I cannot honestly remember the last time I read a series that was so addictive. I picked up the next book immediately and dread when I will have to await the next release. All in all an excellent book in what is shaping up to be a great series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It keeps getting better This is a great second instalment in the 39 clues series. This one is more cunning and just as action packed. Amy and Dan are turning into true Cahills. In this book they learn to spy and sneak around. Perhaps they are apart of the Ekaterina branch? Amy and Dan get one step ahead of the rest of the family, but how much longer can they keep it up?
