Já faz algum tempo desde que li o livro anterior mas foi fácil lembrar o que tinha acontecido, ao ler este livro.
A Casa Dos Espelhos é uma boa continuação desta série cheia de mistério e aventura. Gostei muito de ler mais sobre estes personagens e as suas aventuras. Foram dadas algumas respostas neste livro que levantaram mais perguntas e me deu vontade de pegar logo no livro seguinte.

In this book, Jason, Julia, who are twins, and Rick adventure all over their town of Kilmore Cove in England. They are on an adventure to find the doors and keys to time, before Oblivia Newton, who is a rich and greedy, finds them first. It is set in a recent time period, and the kids track one door to an old clock-makers house, which Oblivia Newton is destroying in hopes to find the door, which if opened with a key and stepped through will bring you back to ancient times. In the first book, the ...more

Well, I must say that of the first 3 books of the Ulysses Moore series, this was the one that I read *ahem*- devoured (!) in a single night :) It didn't contain as much action as the 2nd book, but I think it was a good relaxing break in the sequel, so that it wouldn't become too stuffed. It was pretty nice and a light book to read on a blurry or sunny day. Enjoy! :)

Ini buku ke tiga Ulysses Moore series. Di buku tiga ini, semakin seru saja, karena akhirnya Jason dan Rick kembali ke Kilmore Cove.

Setting kali ini berletak di Kilmore Cove, buku sebelumnya mengajak kita menjelajah Mesir di waktu sebelum masehi. Sekarang dengan kembalinya ke Kilmore Cove, kita diajak ikut berpetualang ke desa yang konon katanya tidak ada di peta sekalipun itu.

Walau Jason dan Rick tidak berhasil membawa kembali peta yang hilang saat di Mesir, mereka tidak kehilangan tekad. Satu d

I was really disappointed in the last book of the series, but this one completely redeemed my faith in the storyline.

Julia, Jason and Rick are back along with Nestor, Obliva Newton and everyone else in Kilmore Cove. This time the adventure happens a little closer to home. Now that she has both the Cat key and the Lion key, Oblivia is confident in her growing control of the doors. She hires a demolition company to destroy Peter Dedalus's house just to find the door that she knows is somewhere wi

Can you believe that, after 3 books, time has just passed for three or four days in the world of Ulysses Moore? Wow. Baccalario surely knows how to stretch a story. Actually the pace in the books itself is not too slow; but it’s just rather, ahem, amazing how events in each book happen in only one or two days. So it’s only in the third book we begin to see more of the secrets hidden in Kilmore Cove…

"Къщата на огледалата" е една приятна детска книжка с хубава корица и красиви илюстрации. В нея ще открием много и най-различни загадки. Има трепетни и лудешки гонки с колела, а също и Врати към Времето.
Приятно впечатление прави и хуморът, с който се описват измислени книги:

Each new volume is better than the first, deepening the mystery, laying just enough crumbs,then answers, that I truly cannot wait for the complete series to be translated into English. This is a marvelous, diverse, and expanding fictional universe.
The Americanisms do still bug me a bit, yet, I can let them slide, as long as they don't overuse it.

Sebel, karena buku ini ibarat potongan puzzle yang belum lengkap. Masih terlalu banyak potongan lain yang harus dikumpulin.
Cukup bikin pusing karena missing link-nya banyak.
Dari satu rahasia dibawa ke rahasia lain tanpa mengungkap rahasia pertama.

dibaca menemani perjalanan pulang dari IBF

Sebenarnya bingung mau bilang apa. Yang ada rasa kagum plus iri karena di usia yang muda, Rick, Julia dan Jason sudah mengalami pertualangan yang menegangkan.Petualangan ala Don Brown versi remaja

Jaman dahulu baca Lima Sekawan saja sudah merasa tegang, serasa ikut berpetualang. Apalagi lagi baca buku ini, serasa di bius dengan ketegangan yang tiada henti. Dalam 24 jam saja mereka sudah mengalami banyak petualangan

I wasn't reading this book from the first book, so it was a bit confusing for me, but actually I think the story is fun and interesting. I really want to read the first and second book, because I'm curious with what was happening in the beginning of story.

Anyway, I like Rick... xoxo.

This is actually a kid book. but, who cares?
Finished this in one day! I hate scholastic for promoting only the third book in the book school list. I want to read the first and second book. GAHHH.
Okay, this book was amazing, the characters, the plot, what's not to like, dude?
The story is about 3 teenagers going for a quest to find a map that the villain, Oblivia Newton, has. The story gets more interesting as they unravel the mystery of the house that they live in.
This book is so amazing. you ha

This is the third in the Ulysses Moore series and is a sort of mystery with fantasy elements. The story/series is far from over as the three kids race around town trying to thwart the evil villaness Oblivia Newton from gaining control to the gateway to other world and times that exist in the mysterious town of Kilmore Cove. Caretaker Nestor and several other characters may not be what they seem! The pace is fast---the first 3 books have taken place over a mere weekend. Looking forward to the nex ...more

Petualangan Jason, Julia & Rick makin seru. Setelah mereka menemukan pintu waktu, kunci serta peta, mereka mulai menyusun teka teki untuk menemukan jawaban dr suatu rahasia yang tersimpan di Kilmore Cove. Siapa Ulysses Moore perlahan mulai terbongkar. Lalu ada apa dengan Rumah Cermin? Rumah itu menggiring mereka ke petunjuk lain yang pada akhirnya memberikan awal petualangan baru bagi mereka. Kilmore Cove tetap misterius dan gw tidak sabar menanti lanjutannya :-)

Ceritanya berkembang semakin menarik. Lapisan-lapisan rahasianya sebagian terkuak, sebagian membentuk lapisan baru. Setiap akhir cerita seakan pengantar untuk membuka edisi selanjutnya. Pengaruh Tom Sawyer (Mark Twain) dan Narnia (C.S. Lewis) terasa semakin kuat. Mungkin juga dipengaruhi oleh Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling). Seharusnya buku ini masuk kategori for everyone (penerbit mengkategorikannya sebagai Erlangga for Kids)

Arrivata al terzo libro non posso che confermare la buona impressione che già avevo avuto con i primi due e andare avanti!
Unica pecca di questo tipo di libri (intendo libri per bambini)è che si leggono velocemente come se fossero capitoli di un solo romanzo e non romanzi in sè... insomma se fossero contenuti in un solo volume mi piacerebbero ancora di più!

Nestor è il personaggio più adorabile ^_^

The house of mirrors is a good book,the book is about Rick,Jason,and Julia are tring to find out why Oblivia Moore stole a map. Jason,Rick, and Julia have four keys for the "Door of Time." Nestor[the caretaker] makes a phone call to this guy and the guy on the other side of the phone said master, so if you want to now if nestor is a bod guy read the house of mirrors

Recommends it for: treasure maps, adventure, secrets, keys
This was my least favorite of the "Ulysses Moore" books so far. The others are really action packed and this one was much slower. Yes, it did answer a lot of questions I have had so far, but I couldn't shake the feeling it was missing something. The good news is that there is a fourth one coming out!
Becky Savoie
This book was decent. It probably would help if I'd read books 1-3 of the series first. Or is this the third? Idk...either way. Fun read for middle grade. Time travel and secret doors and a house that spins around on gears!

This is a good series, not great though. More secrets are revealed in this third book about kilmore cove and still leaving us more unanswered questions. The storyline is good, and the mysteries are suitable for teenagers, light read for your spare time.

Aaaah akhirnya selesai juga. Ini merupakan salah satu tipe cerita kesukaanku, dimana settingnya fantasy dan jalan ceritanya misteri :)
Tapiii, berhubung ini buku berseri dan aku langsung baca buku ketiga, rasanya agak2 bingung memahami jalan ceritanya :/

Le mystère de Kilmore Cove m'intéresse définitivement bien plus que la balade égyptienne du tome 2 et c'est avec plaisir que j'ai retrouvé les 3 enfants à nouveau réunis. Jolie relation entre ces 3 pré-adolescent et Nestor, le vieux gardien bougon.
