The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma by Trenton Lee Stewart
Rate this book

I felt like this one had a slow start but eventually gained steam. The children continue to be the strongest characters and that drives my continuing interest in the series. While this was an enjoyable read, it wasn't as strong as book 2. The plot se...more

I enjoyed this but it didn't quite live up to the hype I'd experiences about it. It was a good story with some unique characters. Definitely a good pick for younger y.a. readers. The story isn't particularly complex but it's a fun summer read.
"Oh absolutely, incredibly, soul-suckingly depressing. (I usually avoid Oprah picks too but I grabbed it at a book sale without seeing the emblem.) "

In my fantasy life I write like Jhumpa Lahiri. Reading her work always makes me want to grab a notebook and put words to paper, knowing that I could never achieve the elegance and beauty she does. My only disappointment with this book is that it is o...more

At times a bit uneven and slow, on the whole this was a fun series debut. Four children with very unusual skills find themselves selected for a special institute to learn how to use their talents. But is this institute for real and is Mr. Benedict so...more

I enjoyed this even more than the first. There were parts of the first that dragged for me and felt uneven. This one really built on the characters we already knew and liked. They quickly leapt into a journey that highlighted the best of what this se...more
