The Mysterious Benedict Society And The Perilous Journey :: Book Review

Author: Trenton Lee Stewart
Series: The Mysterious Benedict Society
Book No.: 2

This book – The Mysterious Benedict Society And The Perilous Journey – by author Trenton Lee Stewart is about four kids that make up the Mysterious Benedict Society: Reynie Muldoon, George "Sticky" Washington, Kate Wetherall and Constance Contraire. While these four friends are all incredibly intelligent, they really don’t seem to have much in common and they all have their own unique approaches to solving problems. But their personal skills, when united together in service of the society, make for a very effective team.

The Prequel
This book is actually a sequel (second in a series) to the author’s first book, called The Mysterious Benedict Society. At the end of the first book, all of the children had made important discoveries about their heritage, their history and/or themselves, while they worked to save the world from an evil mastermind and his henchmen.


The Sequel
Now, in the sequel, the kids have to figure out how to put together the things they found out about themselves in the first book with what could be their most demanding assignment yet.


It seems like just an innocent reunion when the four society members are called together six months after the completion of their last mission. But then Mr. Benedict and his right-hand woman, Number Two, disappear into the hands of his nemesis (and identical twin) Ledroptha Curtain, leaving only a trail of clues scattered across continents.


As the kids race against time by train, bicycle, or the world's fastest cargo ship, they discover that their mission might have consequences not only for Mr. Benedict but also for humankind. Can the foursome track down Mr. Benedict and rescue him before it's too late?


Well, we can’t really tell you that now. It will ruin the ending! Pick up a copy of The Mysterious Benedict Society And The Perilous Journey to find out!


More About The Story
While we’re not going to reveal how the book ends, we can tell you a bit more about the story. We loved (and we’re sure you’ll love, too) the puzzles and clues found throughout the book. Like we said, each of the kids has his or her own special talent or gift and they're learning more about their individual powers all the time.


The first two-thirds of the book are set up like an international scavenger hunt race by at breakneck speed, as the kids discover and solve Mr. Benedict's clues, which are written especially for them.


As the mystery unfolds, Reynie has to decide if his new knowledge of human evil can allow him to believe the best of people regardless. Sticky is learning to balance his thirst for attention with his regard for others. Kate must learn how to be the daughter of an international super spy. And all of them have to think differently about three-year-old Constance, who is still discovering her unusual powers with the help of Mr. Benedict.

I honestly think that if you believe the earth is flat, there is something fundamentally wrong with your way of thinking and how you decide whats true and whats not. so what your saying is that if we believe in the flat earth we have some kind of mental problem???

    forgive my stupidity there the real reason why they launch the missle is so they could coat the dome with radiation then they would bounce radio waves from ground satilletes from teh dome and back to ( internet towers, cell towers, etc) as the live footage you see from sates are nothing but cgi footage

If there exists the Van Allen Radiation Belt then the earth is round (or some sort of three dimensional shape at least) because there cannot exist magnetic monopoles. On the "flat earth wiki" it states that the Earth acts like a spherical magnet, which is also not consistent with the existence of the Van Allen radiation belt (then the charged particles are suspended radially around the ring which would obviously result in catastrophic damage to the atmosphere and land on Earth). Furthermore, the Van Allen Belt does not inhibit space travel, it only makes running digital equipment more risky. Certainly NASA, Roscosmos and ESA did not all lie to mask the "truth". Flat Earth would make it necessary to rethink fundamental physics, including gravity (general relativity), and a significant amount of electromagnetism knowledge that is well established and proven beyond concept. the van allen beltt is actually ther fermintation dome which for the reason of having radiation is the suddenly missle launching from not just america but russia as well to see if they could break the dome,F.H cook was also the one who discovered the ice wall yet says that there is land beyond it the size of america.... i would like  for that to be explained as well and i would like also for people to disprove the ice wall and why military a guarding it if it's just your ever day ice wall!!

Transfer pic onto wood. Do a picture within a picture to show how many generations. A time-line pic or pictures. Hope you're able to find something for your Mom. Good luck. Yeah! That's a perfect idea!
