Good for the whole family

Would you listen to The 39 Clues, Book One again? Why?

I downloaded this book for a long car journey with my children aged 17, 14 and 11 and my parents, in their 70's. We were all completely hooked.

Not just for the little people in the house

I came across this book whilst looking for something new for my 7yo to listen to. Naturally I listened to it before he did & found it very entertaining.

The book is clearly written for a younger audience & there are parts that are quite obvious (to someone who has had more than a few 21st birthdays). That said, it doesn't stop you from enjoying the story & my 7yo is now half way through & giving the thumbs up.

Couldn't stop listening!

What a fantastic book! It was full of adventure, educational tidbits and well described characters. I will be recommending this book to the young people I teach!

Just Brilliant! Riordan inspires children again

Where does The 39 Clues, Book One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Second

What was one of the most memorable moments of The 39 Clues, Book One?

Throughout the book there is a subtle humour that appeals to both children and adults.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed and was totally inthralled

Any additional comments?

My son (12 years): "wow, it is so good I don't want to get out of the car, I want to know what happens next". My daughter (14 years) "I can't wait for the journey back home (9 hours) so that we can continue with the clues". My husband "At last a book we can listen to in the car that is funny, easy to listen to and easy to follow!".
