The Journal of Curious Letters (The 13th Reality #1)
What if every time you made a choice that had a significant consequence, a new, alternate reality was created the life that would've been? What if those new Realities were in danger? What if it fell to you to save all the realities?
Atticus Higginbottom, a.k.a. Tick, is a regular thirteen-year-old boy living a regular life until the day a strange letter arrives in his mai...more
Can you solve the mystery?
James Dashner's first story in his new THE 13TH REALITY series, THE JOURNAL OF CURIOUS LETTERS, revolves mainly around a young boy named Atticus (or "Tick" as he likes to be called).
Tick's adventure begins when he arrives home to find a cryptic letter giving him riddles on something that is supposedly going to save the lives of people around him. Intrigued, he begins his investigation, and, gaining a few friends along t...more
Tahukah kamu, terkadang setiap pilihan penting yang kita tentukan menciptakan Realitas (dunia lain yang isinya berbeda dengan dunia kita) baru. Bayangkan Realitas itu ada banyak. Bayangkan Realitas yang banyak itu sekarang dalam bahaya–dilenyapkan dari keberadaannya. Dan apa yang akan kamu lakukan seandainya kamu terpilih sebagai salah satu yang bertugas menyelamatkan Realitas yang banyak itu?
Atticus Higginbottom, atau yang lebih suka dipanggil Tick, tentu saj...more
And so Tick's bravery, endurance, trust and logic skills are put to the ultimate test, as he tries to solve 12 clues that the writer of the first letter, M.G, has sent to him in a variety of ways, and by a variety of people.
Will Tick solve the 12 clues in time? Can he even survive, as numerous s...more
Most of all I appreciated that Tick comes from a normal, functioning family. So many books portray families as messed up or as single parents. When Tick has a problem he actually TALKS to his dad. Hallelujah!!! I loved the relationship with his family and his father. It was very refreshing.
I love the fact that they're short chapters (usually 5-6 pages long) and it makes it seem like I'm reading a whole lot quicker than I actually am. Along with that, I love all of the twists and turns that the book brings in each chapter. Each character is original in its...more
I like the fact that the book's protagonist, Tick, is not at all popular, but doesn't get depressed because he has a healthy sense of his own self-worth. He copes at school with an ugly birthmark and bullies. Most kids should relate to such challenges. I hope the book encourages children who are reading it for sheer enjoyment.
I look forward to reading the...more

I may recommend this to 8-10 year old readers, but not the tween crowd I think it was written for. This series may improve with the later books. I think the pressure authors...more
Setelah menentukan pilihan, apakah kita pernah bertanya-tanya bagaimana jadinya hidup kita bila kita mengambil pilihan lain pada waktu itu? Bagi teman-teman yang suka membaca komik, mungkin ada yang ingat salah satu alat Doraemon berbentuk kotak telepon yang bisa mengantar kita kepada dunia alternatif: dengan memesan “aku ingin ada sihir di dunia ini”, kita akan melangkah keluar kotak telepon dan mendapati bahwa sihir telah menjadi bagian tak terpisahkan dari dunia kita yang biasa.
The characters are an interesting mix of the stereotypical (the male lead is a nerdy kid with confidence issues; the female support is brainy and arrogant) and the original (the lead "ba...more
