I must read this book!
the 9th 39 clues leaves
a good cliff hanger.

Finally, after reading all nine books, I get to the last one in this exciting series… but, wait a minute, I’m not so sure it IS the last one! Apart from the bonus book, The Black Book of Buried Secrets, that is being released on October 26, 2010 (in which the hidden secrets and mysteries surrounding history’s most notorious family are uncovered) the ending of The 39 Clues left some unanswered questions. “Our adventures aren’t over, Dan thought. But they are for now.” So, entretemps, this series ...more

Prompt: My own prompt:
What technique does the author use to make this book more compelling? Focus on one technique and find examples to prove why you think that example was funny.

The technique the author to make this book more compelling is using humor. There are quite many examples of this technique in this book and all the others in this series although every book is written by a different author.

Ah the 39 clues is such a fast pace, thrilling, mysterious, alliances and betrayal, exciting twists and turn series. I really like all of the books. They were all easy, and fun to read. But I just finished the 9th book yesterday and me and my sister heard the last
Book came out a few days ago. So we looked at the library, 18 holds on the book. We COULDNT wait that long. :P so I was out shopping with a friend and my sister went to barnes and

OK, this book is one of the books that made me cry. It's not great. Not good. Not awesome. The only word to desribe it is this: Epic. Margaret Peterson Haddix did an amazing job with this book. In the beginning, we are informed how much the Clue Hunt has tired two till-recently-ordinary kids and how much they think that the ambitions of the Madrigals seem unlikely to happen to the kids' eyes, with the best possible way. Then, we see Jonah Wizard, his first appearance after The Emperor's Code. He ...more

Fantastic! Love this middle grade series. On the whole, the series introduces kids to history and important people. Although it might warp the true facts a bit, I don't mind for the sake of adventure and intrigue.

Book 10 is positively epic. I can't imagine what even takes place in the final book of the first 39 Clues series. Guess I'm about to find out though!

After reading this one it really got me to thinking. The 39 Clues would make for an awesome movie or TV series. Now wouldn't it?
Lisa
The final of the original 39 Clues series, and in my opinion, the best book of them all. Amy and Dan have not only discovered that they truly are from the Madrigal branch of the family, but that they must try and reunite the other branches in order to truly win and find the final of the 39 clues. As they search in London for the final clue, the younger generation of each of the other branches begin to mistrust their parents. One by one, they begin to decide that they need to join forces, however ...more

It's 39 clues but only 10 books - I kinda expected 39 books. And Book #11 is not just by Rick Riordan but a combi of 4 authors and not about Amy & Dan (yup, I peeked after realising that this one ends Amy & Dan's adventures - all secrets revealed, all their enemies become friends, excepting the evil Isabel Kabra.
This final book takes them to London, the Globe Theatre, Shakespeare and Stratford-upon-Avon, culminating in this uncharted isle off the Irish coasts - the ultra-secret Cahill h

Excellent plot, not the least bit boring!
Cathy
Really a 3.5, but I had to round up because I enjoyed the series as a whole. Wrapping up a 10 book mystery is quite a task. Doing so when you aren't the author of the first 9 books was probably harder. Overall Haddix did an OK job. I didn't feel like the kids' voices range particularly true, especially the supporting characters. And having to wrap things up caused a lot of points to feel overly simplified, minus some of the depth and emotion I'd come to hope for in this series, if not expect wit ...more

The whole series is amazing! It really grips you, and it's the kind of series which you won't want to put your book down! Everytime I finished a book, i had to rush to the library to get the next! I recommend this for people who like adventure, science fiction, fantasy and mystery genres. Read this book if you really want to be put on the ends of your seat!
Jon Cox
This was a decent end to a long and sometimes enjoyable series. I did enjoy the human side of the story where the younger generation, plus one old person decide to follow their consciences instead of the past behavior of their elders.

Plot wise, however, there were obviously some fairly unrealistic events that occurred. That's par for the course in this series. But I wish that Haddix had researched her rock climbing sequence a bit better. There are a few glaring errors in that one. And the resol

This book was about the brother and sister,Dan and Amy, arriving at the "end" of their quest. But all of their rival relatives are there. they all race to find the last clues and some would do anything to obtain it. The kids uncle gives the recipe for the potion to make someone the most powerful cahill at gunpoint but as the rival woman makes it she is disrupted and it is destroyed. at the end, everyone gives the recipe to Dan and Amy and they find out everything that ever happened. it was a ver ...more

this was the last book, but not really there is another series, But it was the last for this instalment, ans as always i loved the book. Secrets are revealed and the cahills team up together finally.

Madrigals has long been see as the bad guys but in real they are the good side of the cahill branch who wishes that all cahill wil ...more

A satisfying end to a series that, overall, was just... kind of okay. I do maintain that I probably would have enjoyed the 39 Clues books more had I been a few years younger-- their intended audience, but as it was, this series had some flaws that I just couldn't overlook, and I don't plan to read the follow-up.

That said, it was nice to see the Cahill family finally come together, and though I was skeptical about the reemergence of the Starling siblings, (I had already written them off as pointl

My goodness, never saw this coming! BREATHE KRISTIAN BREATHE!

Ok, back, A MUST HAVE BOOK! SHOULD HAVE 100 STARS! Anyways, lets talk about every team that got here.

Amy, Dan and Nellie- they needed to win, it because they got most clues and most punishment.

Ian and Natalie- Well, they kinda do, because they left their mom behind.

Hamilton- He was the first team with Amy and Dan. But all he has to do is throw them all at the wall to win.

Johan- Eh, he did help Dan other then ditching him.

The starlings-

Logan Mead
I enjoyed the book very much and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good read, but you will need to read the rest of the series first or else it will not make any sense. Haddix keeps the simple writing and storytelling of the rest of the series but adds a darker atmosphere and a very finalistic attitude. --WARNING SPOILERS-- We truly realize how desperate Isabelle is for the clues as she threatens to kill every single person that the children and the other contenders ever loved with a very e ...more

39 Clues Book Ten

I am reading 39 clues and this book takes place in the present and the reason I know that is because they mention words like iPods,Blue Ray's and other object that we have now. 39 Clues is a book that is all around the world because they are searching for clues all over the world but Book ten takes place in London, England.

I know that the book takes place in London because in a page it says "we're going to Romeo and Juliet" (pg.17) and she was exited that she was g

A very good ending to the series, though I wonder if there will be more in the future. The option was left somewhat open. I am intrigued to see how they will cram this whole series into next year's movie. That should be fun!

Into the Gauntlet is the tenth title in The 39 Clues series of 11 books, not including spinoff series. It is another solid entry into the action adventure series for the tween set. This installment brings us to the epic conclusion of the original series. There is still one more book to go but it is assumably a transition to the first of several spinoff series since the search for 39 clues is now complete. Into the Gauntlet was longer than the others in the series but still held attention from be ...more

SPOILER ALERT: Well I was hoping beyond hope that this wasn't going to be the last book. I was really hoping for 39 books. Well it's not the end either but all 39 clues have been found, and there are all the spin off series too. So maybe this can go on for so much longer. :)

But this was a great series and a great series for all in the family to share and love reading (or in our case listening) too.

There is are strong female characters too and I LOVE that in books. I just wish they didn't try to

I've read the whole series and it is by far my favourite books ever, I have read lots of books but none like this series, it has a good taste in drama, Mystery,Suspense,Romance ect... So personally I recommend this book to readers who liked 'Percy Jackson' the series, I found it very amusing at parts because it had an Adult tone at some parts and a kiddish one as well, The books aren't to long about a hundred or so pages in each.The characters are well thought out so is the plot.So I really do h ...more
