    I’ve never read any of the 39 Clues books yet, but this review changed my mind. You’re right. If a book is too long, it makes me bored, unless it’s greatly written like The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. I’m definitely going to get the book, or perhaps the whole series, whenever I get a chance to!!

    I read the whole first series last year,and they were great! In fact, I finished the first eleven books in less than two weeks. It was EXTREMELY tempting to pick up a book from the 39 Clues series that I didn’t finish yet. Now, I finished the third book from the second series, Cahills vs. Vespers, I’m and waiting for the fourth book to come out. I wonder what the title will be, and what new surprises will there be? 😉

      Actually, the fourth tittle is “Shatterproof” by Roland Smith. It is supposed to come out on September 4th.

  5. I love the series of the 39 clues. I feel sorry for Amy and Dan because their beloved grandmother passed away. Still, to leave the hardship and danger of finding all of the clues to Amy and Dan, I think i unbelievable. Though, the dangers they have to face makes me not want to put the book down. I think that this is an awesome book.

  6. The 39 Clues is an epic book! I love the Kabras, Ian and Natalie! They’re Lucians, just like Irina! I can’t believe Irina because at the end, her heart suddenly turns good and she helps Amy, Dan, and Alistair Oh get out of the fire. She actually sacrificed herself for them.
