The reason why I picked the book called "The Worm Tunnel" was because it looked interesting and the name sounded fun so I decided to start it. The other reason why I chose it was because the cover looked pretty cool and interesting because it had an egg hatching in a desert with a boy looking confused running away from something. I would not recommend this book to anyone because it was not as interesting and fun as I thought it would be. It was a little too all over the place it started out pre
This is a mystery series featuring a boy, Finnegan Zwake, and his mystery writing Uncle Stoppard. The mysteries combine adventure to exotic locales and of course, danger and murder. This one was not quite as good as others I've read but still a great story.

Background: Finn's parents are archaeologists, who when he was 7 years old went off to Iceland on an exploratory dig and nothing has been heard of them since. Finn was left with Uncle Stoppard in Minnesota. I think that he is about 13 now.

So much fun and very clever. I loved the relationship between uncle and nephew as well as the ability for these two to carry on after the "loss" of Finn's parents. Decent mystery too.

It bored me. The characters got to be confusing - sometimes had to go back to figure out who was speaking. Definitely a kid book.
The Worm Tunnel
I read this book and I have really enjoyed it because it combines action and mystery. The main characters are Finnegan Zwake, or as they call him Finn, Jared, and his Uncle Stoppard. They are traveling back to his parents old archeology site where there is a golden crocodile. But along the way they get sucked into a wormhole, and they end up in an other archeology digging site. But as they say in the book, digging two deep can cause trouble, and not to mention murder, or one, or
A good, quick and fun read.
Another book I read thinking my students might like it. This was a fun little book. At first I had some trouble getting 'into it' but I kept reading and ending up enjoying the book. It had mystery, murder and lots of action. Add the dinosaurs and digging for gold items-I can see where lots of young people will enjoy the series. I didn't figure out who did the killing until near the end. A well written book.
I literally fell in love with this book. I hadn't read the first book, but i didn't hsve to. The author has a great way of describing these.
I started this series because I wanted to read what David read. I continued on in the series. This book was not as good as the first.

A fun little mystery with quirky literature references and general geekiness.
