The Name of This Book Is Secret

Warning: this description has not been authorized by Pseudonymous Bosch.
As much as he 'd love to sing the praises of his novel ( he is very vain), he would n't want you to hear about his brave 11-year old heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest. Or about how a mysterious box of vials, the Symphony of Smells, sends them on the rail of a magician who has vanished under strange ( and stinky) circumstances. And he certainly would n't want you to know about the hair-raising adventures that follow and the nefarious villains they face. You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story beneat is, too. For it concerns a secret. A Big Secret.

It 's not completely related to the Secret Series ( there are, however, some eferences to it in Write This Book), but I still recommend reading the Secret Series first.

The tory starts off in a promising way, but I wish I had heeded the author 's advice and stopped reading.

This plot device is n't as likabl as the author thinks it is; it 's jarring and takes you out of the storie, interrupting the natural flow of things.

This might be a way for him to get kids to imagine themselves in the tory, but I found that it made the characters very flat.

I wish the uthor had spent muc time on escriptions and developing the plot than telling me he was n't going to tell me something.

Why bother with illustrations if they are n't going to match the story?

Sometimes, as a grown up, you feel the need to read great-big ponderous books, generally referred to as " pics. " Maybe you read them to prove a point, that you can.

Maybe you read them thinking there 's some great answer in the essay, a way of coping with the act that sometimes life sucks and there is n't anything you can do about it.

Whatever the reason, those great big epics, whether they 're good or bad, reveal to you all the ays that your own writing is n't really all that ood.

Well the tone of the tal is somewhat analogou to SOUE that is why I was really determined to read this memoi.

Throughout the book he uses as " fun tone " and always leaves some side comments here and there about the main haracters.

The author really did create soem quirky world within this story.Unlike the dark tone the Lemony Snicket used in SOUE, surely this book is fun to read.The build up done from start up to the climax to the resolution of Book 1 is done beautifully.

It presented the overall oncept of the storie while leaving you with some thing to wander.

The poe is not as great at tying up loose ends, admittedly, which Lemony Snicket is a master at, but I think it 's worth it.
