    I really liked this book a lot of the story was shrouded in mystery and this book could be funny at times.

    It was nice because it was hard to predict what would happen.

    I liked this book because some of the parts were funny like when the cannon hit him in the groin.XD

    This book was really good. If you don’t really like killing and torture than I would not recommend this book to you. But if you are fine with that type of stuff and you like adventure than this is a good book for you.

    Out of all of the books I have read this one is my favorite. It is very exciting! I would recommend this book to people who like adventure and non stop action. You should definitely read it.

    I personally was not a big fan of this book. it was defiantly interesting at certain points, but just seemed to be stuck saying the same thing over again at points. I had to read this in a book group, which was challenging because of my lack of interest. I did enjoy some of the mysterious parts of the book, but I enjoy Cliff hangers and there weren’t a lot of them. kyle, how come you think this book is cool?

    At first I thought this book would be stupidly boring but during the end I really enjoyed it. I thought that it was cool and smart how Christopher figured out the codes and puzzles. I would read this book again.
