These are awesome books. When i read the first i couldn't put it down. I ended up staying up half the night. I actually finished it that night. Anyway, great books if you like adventure, good books, or both. ( i personally like both ).

I didn't purchase this, but I have read these books and they are absolutely amazing ! I think this book should be read by all children, but being a child myself,( I am 11), I have to say these books need to be read by a fluent reader. Somebody who deaply understands a outstanding piece of literature must read. I reccomend for ages 10- still able to read, but only if you can appreciate this masterpiece ! 100% perfect . Action-packed and thrilling, these books put you on the edge of your seat !

This book is for readers who like mystery, action, and suspense! I enjoy how the author thought up Mr. Curtin, ten men, Rhonda, number two, and Mr. Benedict and the children.

I read these books as a 10-11 year old, and they were fantastic, but even now as teenager having re-read them, they are still great. Easily my favorite series of all time! The plot is exciting thoughout and the books just get better and better as the series progresses. I would recommend them to anybody!

THESE BOOKS ROCK! The plot line is solid and they have very interesting puzzles that allow you to try with the characters. I personally love logic and these books let you test your own skills.

I read this trilogy and I cannot get over the amazing events that occur in this book. You don't have to take it from me. Look at all the 5 stars people gave this book. That alone should say something. Read this trilogy. I highly recommend it to 6th graders and up. You will not regret buying this book.

Epic series. Good for 6th grade and up. Always keeps you hanging. :)

Awesome books, but it is two cents cheaper at $20.97 to buy the three books separately than this $20.99 set ;-). Really worth reading, though, and far more wholesome than Percy Jackson or Harry Potter.

I was board this summer when I came upon this book, I bought it read the first book and fell in love with it. This book has amazing detail I actually picture myself as one of the characters. Also, these books always keep you wondering! Except the first book wasn't very detailed twords the end. But if you love mystery this is soooooo for you!!! I tead this all the time, if I could, I would probably bring my nook to school and just read this book over and over again in all of my classes!!! I REALLY DO MEAN, BEST BOOK EVER!!! I AM NOT JUST TYPING THAT!!! =]

This series is my most favorite book series ever! I have read the books countless times, and each time it just gets better and better! Every single character amazes me: Reynie with his puzzle skills, Kate with her agility, Sticky with his memory, and Constance with mind boggling gifts and age and stuborness. I absolutely think Mr. Benedict, Rhonda, and Number Two, and Miss Perumal must be the best teachers ever! I wish they were mine! I also like some of the eviler personalities in the book - Mr. Curtain and the Recruiters and the Execuitives - because they help bring to life some themes and life lessons. I also love the creativity the books have from Constance's wonderful poetry to Sticky's fear descriptions to Kate's fearlessness to Reynie's intuition. The characters are very down to earth people that you hope to run in to at school or walking down the street. Thry are all infinitly loveable, even in their hardest moments. This book is a fabulous read for many times to come! Everyone should read it - the entire series!

I did not purchase this for my NOOK but I have read all three of the books and I recently preordered the new prequel book that's coming out! These books are so good! I really love these outstanding novels! These are must read books! In the first, a boy named Reynie takes a strange test and meets new companions, Kate, Sticky, and Constance. These four experience amazing adventures and encounter weird surprises with Mr. Benedict, their new leader and friend. In the second novel, the team goes on an an exiting journey. In the third, the four companions are "prisoners" in Mr Benedict's home, and they learn more as the story progresses. These are great novels for children and adults alike!
