The Mysterious Benedict Society

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.
