There's been a murder in the Wildenstern family, and the fingers are pointing at Nate, our leading man, who not only wants to find his brother's killer, but must also prove his own innocence while he's at it.

I enjoyed this book, but needed to read about fifty pages until I started to. Slow beginning. I had read the second book in this series and liked that more. This book I could not score as highly, so either it isn't as good, or my tastes have changed. Still, an enjoyable read.

Slow start but once the story got going, I was hooked. I read it to get the feel for the time period, but ended up engrossed in the story and wanting to read the next book as well. The idea of engimals is simply brilliant.

I enjoyed this book, but it didn't have a very good beginning. It didn't hook me in at all, but once I read further I got really interested. It is very good once it gets past the quarter mark.
Good book for kids, slow start but picks up just not sure about the final "battle" it seems a little out of place / rushed.
I think this is a brillent , imaginative book that all ages can enjoy even if it is meant for teenagers :)
