The third book of the series was a very good book to read. I liked this book, because it was very interesting and fun to read. As I was reading this book, it was hard for me to put the book down. I would highly recommend this book to people that have read the first and second book of the series (First: The Maze of Bones; Second: One False Note).

I really enjoyed reading the third installment in this incredibly readable series. Amy and Dan are growing up in a very short space of time as they travel the world and are forced to face some rather painful betrayals. I love seeing Amy begin to come out of her shell and Dan learn a little bit of compassion along the way.

So often with children's stories, the characters do not change (poor Julian of Famous Five fame - forever stuck on the verge of adolescence), but this series has been brilliantly planned and unfolds its characters with the same skill that it unfolds its mysteries. 39 clues effortlessly guides its readers (young and old) through the action, emotion and excitement. I am incredibly impressed and would even go so far as to suggest that there is something here that 'adult' writers could learn from.
