WONDERFUL!

This book was simply wonderful! I have read and enjoyed the previous books in this series, and I was curious to see how a woman author would do, seeing as how all the other books in the series are written by men. Jude Watson did a wonderful job with this book and it w...

Beyond the grave is the fourth book of the series the 39 clues. As said in the book the past is very much alive its true because if you pay attention to not only the story but the entire book itself before you start reading and after you read it, theirs clues in every single book and different ways you find them. The code or clue that was in this book was in hieroglyphics. In order to figure the hieroglyphics you would have to look in front of the cover where you would find letter that correspond to the hieroglyphics. Once you solve if I am correct it should say "Alistair was there the night they died". This can refer to Amy's and Dan's parents because their the only one that have been introduce as dead besides Grace their grandmother. But the reason it cant be her is because the clue says "they" and not "she".

Moving on to the summary of the book, Dan and Amy along with their au-pair (babysitter) Nellie l\ find themselves in the middle of the Khan el-Khalili market in Cairo. Which is located in Egypt. After being double cross by their twisted cousins Ian and Natalie Kabra, they were determined to get back in the game with one reminding strategy which was to trust no one. As the book continues we see a new Amy that past books haven't shown. She became more spoken minded instead of being the "typical shy girl" she rose to the oh occasion when she had to defend her brother or when she had something on her mind weather it was nice or mean. We also learn that Grace had travel around the world many times and she knew that Amy and Dan would chose the hunt for the 39 clues instead for the one million dollars. As the book continues they make the same mistake of trusting one of Grace's old friend and she turned out to be like the rest of the Cahills, greedy.Now for the last thing i like about this book is that if you really payed attention you would see that theirs mini lessons. For example on page 74 it states "we had to look first, then read what someone else had said about it." Which is saying know something first then judge, and not judging by what other people say.

Overall i would give this book a three out of five stars. I think "Beyond the Grave" is a great book but two things I didn't like is that it moved at a fast paste. I think that the author could of done a better job slowing it down and describing the setting, before jumping to another setting. Another thing i didn't like was that Amy and Dan kept trusting people when they have already been stab in the back way to many times, and the result would be the same. It was to predictable.

    Amy and Dan┬┐s cousins betrayed them and their uncle abandon them

    Amy and Dan’s cousins betrayed them and their uncle abandon them. They rush off to Egypt in search for “The 39 clues” that lead them to a source .Betrayed by their cousins , abandon by their uncle, and with only the slimmest hint to guide them , fourteen-year-old Amy and her younger brother Dan, rush off to Egypt.I don’t like this book, because its hard to fallow along.Even though I’m not fond of reading, this was not that bad to read.If you like mysteries this book may be for you.

    A must read series

    Have you ever wanted to know who your grandfathers grandfather is well in the book 39 Clues: Beyond The Grave, by Jude Watson, the fourth book in the series, two kids are trying to find the key to unlock their past.
    Dan and Amy Cahill are brother and sister in a family with hundreds of people all around the world. Their grandmother Grace's will was for all of the Cahills to go on a giant clue hunt. They had been trained all their life without even knowing.
    I liked this series because there is action around every corner and mystery around every turn. This series has ten books.
    I would definitely recommend this series to girls and boys who like action and mystery.
