I found at the library and just finished listening on audio to The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. I didn’t realize it was a whole series until I looked the book up.
The book is geared toward the eight to twelve year-old crowd, yet I highly recommend it for adults as well. The book is an edge-of-your-seat thriller. Today I just sat in my car and finished it. All the Shakesperian and Orwellian themes are in the book but set in a time that is ours but isn’t ours. There is one character everyone can identify with.
I’ll follow up when I get through the rest.
