I think that Reynie chose to trust Captain Noland because Mr. Benedict trusted him and the team had to save Mr. Benedict and Number Two from Mr. Curtain. Also, Reynie knew that in order to save them, was to actually go on the adventure previously planned.(less)

A slow starter. When the author ties together a whole complete book, then he'll really have something, but the first book in this series was a strong starter and then trailed off, and this 2nd book is a slow starter and a poor (far too abrupt) finisher, but the middle section of the book really delivers.

I'd like to see more actual intelligence put down on the page as well. The four children are supposedly super intelligent, but Sticky's contributions are generally of the "he's super well read,

I enjoyed the first book so much that I wanted to read this one shortly after. I was delighted to see more of the Mysterious Benedict Society since the story is so enjoyable, and the characters are so fun.

The illustrations that start each chapter are charming, and I loved the cover that tried to incorporate so many things from the book. The illustrator did a great job.

The author never talks down to his child audience. It is always a good sign when a children's author does not talk down to them.

Okay so this maybe wasn't quite as good as the first one, BUT STILL, FIVE SHINING STARS. This was a brilliant, satisfying, and exciting addition to the Mysterious Benedict Society. I'm just so darn invested in all of these characters.

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey is the second book in the series by Trenton Lee Stewart, following The Mysterious Benedict Society. This is one of the few series I hope will never end. When I read the first book in the series, I was completely blown away. I even compared it with the Harry Potter adventures and The Series of Unfortunate Events. There are lots of lessons to be learned, ‘outlook in life’ that must be observed by number of people and mind-blowing questions a ...more
I was very excited to begin The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey as I am a big fan of its prequel. The first Mysterious Benedict Society was quirky and exciting, and had actual surprises, which, I find, few books do. This one, however, was a disappointment from the start, and I found the task of actually reading all 440 pages of it (which I did) a rather daunting task. Gone was the mystery and suspense that made the first book such a page turner and I realized that much of th ...more

Penggemar seri petualangan anak-anak/remaja tentu tidak pernah lupa dengan Lima Sekawan, Trio Detektif, STOP atau Pasukan Mau Tahu. Kehebatan mereka membongkar kejahatan kerap membuat saya (yang ketika itu masih anak-anak) terkagum-kagum. Bagaimana dengan segala keterbatasan yang mereka miliki (sebagai anak-anak yang sering diremehkan), mereka berhasil mengungguli pihak berwajib dalam mengendus keberadaan para penjahat.

Seiring perkembangan zaman, para penjahat tentunya semakin canggih dan semaki

Trenton Lee Stewart did it again! The second adventure of The Mysterious Benedict Society is just as clever and fun as the first! In fact, I would say I enjoyed the adventure a bit more, especially since I had a better understanding of Nicholas Benedict and his clever clues.

This adventure starts off as a reunion of sorts for the four child prodigies: Reynie, Sticky, Kate and Constance. However, what had originally been intended on a vacation with a challenging twist, turned into a life-saving mi

Both of my kids adored the first Mysterious Benedict Society book so they clamored to have me read them this one, the second, as soon as possible. Luckily enough, Nana & Pop supplied us with a copy. This story takes up a year after the events of the first story. The four kids of the MBS are reunited for what promises to be a fun surprise from Mr. Benedict only to find that Mr. Benedict and Number Two have been abducted by Mr. Curtain and his minions. So it's a rescue mission. I read about a ...more

I loved it! I'm so glad that I found this in my stack of library books! I had been really indecisive about what to read next.
The story was very interesting and kept me hooked the whole time! It seemed a little slow towards the end, but I think that was just because I've had almost no time to read the past few days.
I just have to say how much I love Mr. Benedict and he reminds me so much of Dumbledore from Harry Potter. I love Milligan too. He's so sweet!

This book was ok. I was really liking the begging, sounded like a good plot. Then the middle wasn't really good at all, very boring and characters were undeveloped. Then the end was really really good. I liked the suspense it gave me. The first was good from start to finish, but this book wasn't as good. I wished the author spent more time writing it and rereading his pages, because some parts didn't make sense. I would recommend this book series, but read the 1st book before this one.

i don't know. i wasn't that into the first book in the series, which is why i waited ten months before seeking out the second book. i only picked this up because i am running low on books i want to read at my local library. i'm finally hitting the wall where they are starting to not have the books i request more than 50% of the time. so i was like, "i guess i'll see what happens next for the mysterious benedict society."

Oh my my my! What an exhilarating perilous journey this book is.

The Mysterious Benedict Society is back with their gripping adventures!

In the first book, we saw how the members of The Mysterious Benedict Society met each other and how they were dragged into a very dangerous mission that led to the formation of their team and eventually their friendship . The book ended with the children being saved from the hands of Mr. Curtain, the villain, and with each child having found a real, loving family

Buku kedua petualangan anak-anak asuhan Mr. Benedict ini jelas lebih seru daripada yang pertama. Agak membosankan di awal, sama seperti awalan2 kisah perjalanan di seri buku lain, sebelum masuk ke petualangan sesungguhnya.

Alasan pertama adalah setting yang berpindah-pindah. Dari rumah Kate yang unik, ke rumah Mr. Benedict, lalu naik kapal menyeberangi Atlantik, sampai di Eropa, ke Belanda, mencari petunjuk, bertemu musuh-musuh lama, kastil, pulau, membuat irama petualangannya semakin se

I liked the book and how it had clues to find the next clue. The first one was better, because it had a better plot to it. I like where the author isn't going with Mr. Benedicts brother coming back and trying to take revenge.
Oct 19, 2014 Pamela rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
I think, for what it was, "young reader fiction", it was okay. The characters are interesting, the story idea is fun and I potentially exciting, but it is thouroughly underwhelming, over and over again. This is partially because the author is constantly telling you how "dangerous things are about to get." He continually (annoyingly) deflates the situation by sending the expectation too high. After this happens several times, it gets easy to put it down and forget about it. I know that nothing to ...more

Synopsis: Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance were to go on a scavenger hunt around the world for their one year anniversary with Mr. Benedict. Unfortunately, Mr. Curtain comes back into the picture, and their hunt around the world becomes a race against time as they try to stop Curtain’s plans and save Mr. Benedict and Number Two.

I found the sequel to The Mysterious Benedict Society as enjoyable as the first book. There are less puzzles to solve, but
My Summary: It's been a year since the Mysterious Benedict Society discovered the evil Mr. Curtain's plans to take over the world and foiled any chances he had of doing so. Reynie, Sticky, Constance and Kate haven't seen each other in almost six months but have kept in touch. After each receives an invitation from Mr. Benedict and a cryptic description of some sort of adventure, the group reunites at Mr. Benedict's home... only to find that he and Number Two have been kidnapped by none other tha ...more

I suspect Trenton Lee Stewart must have known that he was on to a good thing with his Benedict Society series - especially as the first was so very much the kind of book that would delight and mystify young children, while also not boring the adults who would have to read these books out loud until presumably their progeny fell into a dream-like stupor. With Perilous Journey, he takes the universe and characters first explored in the first book and expands their horizons, moving the story and th ...more

It’s been several months since the Society (Reynie, Kate, Sticky & Constance) had their first adventure in The Mysterious Benedict Society, and frankly, they’re bored! Nothing is going on until they each get an invitation from Mr. Benedict for a surprise reunion. Excited to be together again, the children happily head to Mr. Benedict’s house. When they arrive, his house is surrounded by policeman - something terrible has happened! Mr. Benedict and Number 2 have disappeared. The first clue, a ...more

A worthy sequel to the excellent start to this excellent series!

One of my favorite things about the series is that the characters are kind to each other for the most part.

One of my least favorite things about modern children's lit is that so many of the characters are filled with needless angst. They don't say things anymore; they scream them. They're often in an impossible position in which they alone can save the world, and they quickly morph from underdog kid heroes into brooding, emo babies

First let me say that, despite my rating, this wasn't a bad book. And I'm gonna be upfront that the book I'd wanted to read at the time wasn't available and I picked this as a back-up, so it's possible that it just didn't quite fill the gap.

That said - while I enjoyed the first book well enough, this one just didn't quite hit the same spot. Now, granted, I only gave the first book, like, 3.5, so it's not like I was blown away by it or anything, but I liked the mystery and there was some suspe
Lately, I have been reading “The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey” by Trenton Lee Stewart. It has a lot of cool insights as you read along. That is probably what I like the most about this book. It makes a couple twists and turns that I never saw coming. There are a lot of very exciting scenes. I like when the whole team works together because they are very efficient and accomplish some really cool things. The book is about a group of children who are trying to kind their ki ...more

The four gifted children (Reynie, Kate, Sticky and Constance) are back for another adventure with Mr. Benedict. This is their one year reunion and Mr. Benedict has developed a sort of treasure hunt where the kids will be traveling all over the place (Portugal and the Netherlands specifically) following carefully laid clues in order to find a well-kept family secret that just might cure Mr. Benedict's narcolepsy. Unfortunately while laying clues, Mr. Benedict and Number Two are kidnapped by his e ...more

“Did the men steal the papers?" Reynie asked, fearing her response.
No, because they are fools," Sophie said bitterly. "They demanded to see the papers, and when I did not answer fast enough -- they were very frightening, you see -- they hurt me so that I was not awake. . . . When I opened my eyes they were still trying to find the papers. They did not understand how we organize the library, you see. They were angry and creating a bad mess. . . . The police were coming and the men decided they must leave. I shouted at them as they left: 'It is a free and public library! All you had to do was ask!”
