What is a really good book to read.
I’ve been hunting a good novel that not many people know of where I live. A book such as the Mysterious Benedict Society. So please no well known books such as Twilight or any others about vampires or books writen by Stephenie Meyer. I have nothing against these books I’m just sick of no matter where I look...
The Town That Forgot How to Breathe.By Kenneth J Harvey.I just finished it, and I would reccomend it to anyone, it is so amazing and has a really good plot.Here’s a summary from amazon.”Bareneed, once a lively and warm place, now stank of drabness and heartbreak.” It’s not much of a magnet for tourists, but it has attracted two visitors for the summer: a fisheries officer and his young daughter. Deeply pained by the recent break-up of his marriage, Joseph fails to notice the more curious aspects of the town. It takes him a while to hear about the townsfolk who’ve been dropping dead for no apparent reason. He’s also slow to realize that his daughter Robin’s new playmate is the ghost of a drowned girl. When he and Robin find an “exceptionally ugly” sculpin at the end of their fishing line, Joseph again tries to stay calm. But then he takes a closer look at his catch. “Feeling his fingers turn warm while he tried to disengage the hook,” Harvey writes, “Joseph whisked them away. Flesh-coloured fluid seeped from the sculpin’s wide mouth. A solid object began edging out as he wiped his fingers on his pants–a flesh-coloured sculpted orb, topped with something that resembled hair, matted in mucousy clumps.” The porcelain doll’s head that emerges from the fish is one in a series of unsettling sights in Harvey’s book. As more and more objects are expelled from the sea, Bareneed’s most painful secrets come to the surface.”

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – fast paced, can’t put it down – 384 pages – survival, killing, romance, really goodSorcery and Cecelia, or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot, by Patricia Wrede and Caroline Stevermer 326 pages – told through letter writing between two friends – magic, mystery and a little romance, very cuteThe Mysterious Benedict Society, Trenton Lee Stewart – 512 pages – very well done – After Reynie Muldoon responds to an advertisement recruiting “gifted children looking for special opportunities,” he finds himself in a world of mystery and adventure. The 11-year-old orphan is one of four children to complete a series of challenging and creative tasks, and he, Kate, Constance, and Sticky become the Mysterious Benedict Society. After being trained by Mr. Benedict and his assistants, the four travel to an isolated school where children are being trained by a criminal mastermind to participate in his schemes to take over the world. The young investigators need to use their special talents and abilities in order to discover Mr. Curtain’s secrets, and their only chance to defeat him is through working together. Readers will challenge their own abilities as they work with the Society members to solve clues and put together the pieces of Mr. Curtain’s plan.

What are some good books/mangas/shows for me.
I like books about young geniuses solving cases/going on missions/acting a bit high and mighty. Kind of like the Artemis Fowls series (I’ve read two of the books from that series, but it got dull, and I became bored of it) I also LOVE the Harry Potter series! I really liked…”The Girl Who Owned A…
I unfotunately don’t read too many books except classics like Wuthering Heights and autobiographies, but one series I think you may enjoy is the “A Great and Terrible Beauty” series. It reminds me a little of the Harry Potter series. It’s about a girl in the early 19th century who finds she has the ability to enter realms. There’s a lot of mystery to it. Maybe you can try the Da Vinci Code series? I heard it’s pretty good.As for manga, have you read Death Note? If you don’t feel like reading it all, the live action movies are good to watch. You can never go wrong with reading Chrono Crusade and Fullmetal Alchemist as well as Elemental Gelade and Tactics. They are sort of Naruto-ish, but don’t drag on forever. Raiders is epic, but gorey, and Spiral is good too. I can’t help but add Detective Conan because he is the youngest genius detective I know.But what I recommend highest of all is a Korean drama series called City Hunter. It’s based off the manga series and it’s the most epic thing I’ve seen in a looong time. Right from the first episode I was completely hooked along with my friends. I think it has everything you’re looking for. Check out a fanmade trailer:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Qdm5bvTf…You can watch it at dramacrazy.com, viki.com, or MySoju.comJapanese dramas have a lot of detective series. Liar Game is a manga but I watched the drama and it was awesome! Kurasagi is great too! Oh, and good places to watch shows is of course Hulu.com and I also got to surfthechannel.com.Anyway, hope these suggestions help:)

what do you think of a prequel book about Mr. Curtain by Trenton lee stewart.
I know stewart did a prequel book about benedict. but how bout a prequel book about curtain. Also do you think stewart should do a fourth book in the mysertious benedict society?
I haven’t seen the prequel, and I am not too fond of them myself so I wouldn’t particularly want one about Curtain.The “Mysterious Benedict Society” works very well as a trilogy. I think too many book series are ruined because they are pushed beyond their natural length, and the later books become quite poor. Although I liked the books, I am happy that they ended when they did.
Should I read the final Mysterious Benedict Society book or the prequel first.
I know that Stewart wrote The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict to take place before the series began but it was released after the final book in the series, and I’d like that book to be the end. So what I’m really asking is is it written to be a book after the end?How do you think I should…
many prequels contain Spoilers, so read them in the order they were written and releasedInformation in the prequel could ruin a shock ending that happens in the main series of books
