Entertaining to the last,
This review is from: The Mysterious Benedict Society (Paperback)
I try to read most of the books my children read so that I can either perform damage control after the fact, or ban it from them. Usually it's a chore, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It hooked me from the first page and kept me delighted to the very end. In addition to a clever, tight, and suspenseful plot, the characters were fascinating and highly different from each other, yet each was intensely important to the success of the group as a whole. It was also very funny! An excellent read for children and even for some adults!
