39 Steps is a great book! I read it for my Composition class and quickly got intriqued by it. Full of adventure with some comical events. Kept you involved throughout the book. I would recomend this book to anyone that likes detective stories and adventure.

An innocent conversation with a neighbor on the stairs draws colonial Richard Hannay into a vortex of political intrigue and danger. Events rapidly develop as Hannay is framed for a murder and decides to run for it. Even though he's wanted by both murderous spies and the British police, he's determined to uncover the riddle and stop an impending catastrophe for the British Empire. All the while he's on the run - sometimes literally - in the wilds of Scotland. The book is a colorful 103-page action adventure and, like most spy novels, sometimes unbelievable. However, it's an entertaining read. I recommend it to anyone who likes action, adventure, or spy novels. (By the way, I noticed the British author used 'on the weekend' in this 1915 publication. Interesting, because now almost all English say 'at the weekend'.)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
