The Maze of Bones (The 39 Clues Series #1) by Rick Riordan | 9780545060394 | Hardcover | Barnes & Noble

The Maze Of BonesI just finished reading the Maze Of Bones by Rick Riordan.It is about two kids named Dan and Amy whose lives turn upside down when their grandmother dies.At her funeral, they learn that their family is the most powerful family in the world.Every important person was related to them.They are given the opportunity to either take $1,000,000 or go on a treasure hunt that can make them the most powerful people in the world.The treasure hunt consisted of 39 clues and began in France and, of course, they decided to go.During the hunt, they faced many obstacles, including the fact that their distant relatives tried to kill them!I like the character Uncle Alister.He was very weird and he was thought to have invented the microwavable burrito.I also liked the story's setting because it took place in France.Finally, each chapter ended in a cliff hanger and I liked that because it kept me reading.I did not really like the ending of the book because it didn't really have much of an ending; only one of 39 clues was found.I also think Rick Riordan could have included some of the characters more often.Other than that, the book was great!Rick Riordan writes from one character's perspective at a time.Usually it switches on and off between Dan and Amy but sometimes it is from the perspective of another team in the treasure hunt such as the Kabras, Irina Spasky, or the Holts.The book is easy to read because the words are simple and it the topic is clear to understand.I would recommend this book for many reasons.First, it is mysterious like when they go into the Maze of Bones or the cemetery.Second, the book is funny, especially when the Holts hit each other with popsicles.It is also funny when Dan and Amy call Irina Spasky "The Spaz" because her eye twitched.Finally, it is really cool when they use weapons like the stun bomb or the hidden needles in Irina Spasky's fingernails.That is why I would recommend the Maze of Bones.The only other books that are like this one are the other books in this series.Rick Riordan has also written the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series.The Maze of Bones is a great book that you will enjoy!
