11: I like how the mystery is not like a normal mystery because Mr. Westing didn’t die when they think he did. I like how the author spread out the characters and made them from different countries and places. My favorite characters were Sandy and Turtle because of their personalities. Sandy used a Scottish accent and was always giving off clues even though you didn’t know it. Turtle was my age and she kicked everybody in the shins. It made it more mysterious when everyone limped and you had to figure out which one was the limper Chris saw.
14: I thought it was very well-written and the author gave you just enough hints to keep you guessing and keep you interested in the book, without giving too much away. I liked Theo. [Why?] I just liked him.
17: It’s a book you definitely have to finish because you can’t figure out the answer until the last page. It’s very suspenseful. I like how the author was omnipotent throughout the book so you could get into all the characters’ minds, that way you could explore more ground. It was tricky to solve the mystery because there were so many clues, and a lot were red herrings. This is a fast read that is light and enjoyable. You can’t put it down—it’s very engaging.
