The saga continues

Would you listen to 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers again? Why?

Yes....because the remainder or the series is so SLOW in coming.

What other book might you compare 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers to and why?

The first series (on steroids)

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It just makes me (us actually....my two 7 year olds and my 9 year old)....want more

Any additional comments?

We love this series and as homeschoolers have learned much(mom included) about history and famous figures worldwide. A must listen for kids of all ages (again, mom included). I'm so hooked that I tend to keep listening while my kids are in some class or activity. I just have to remember to use the bookmark feature. I've gotten grounded several times by my children....they take the iPad into the next class they go to.

Plot gets thicker....

Would you listen to 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers again? Why?

There is so much going on in the story that it when you listen to the other books in the series it will make you come back and wonder how they came to those conclusions.

What other book might you compare 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers to and why?

Book 8 in the 39 clues series is comparable to this book in the way certain elements interfered with the progress of the cahills. This gives this new series a tie in with the previous series.

What does David Pittu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings emotions to play into the story as its being read. His tone is not that of someone reading lazily. he makes you want to know what is going to happen next and make you re-listen to part to understand other parts that have come up.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made want to get the next book in the series to see where it would lead the cahill team next.

Making the Impossible Possible

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yeah, totally. This is my favorite Cahill book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers?

Stealing the Medusa. Suicidal boat tricks. Robberies. Explosions.

What about David Pittu’s performance did you like?

He is a really good orator.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yeah, because it was packed with endless action.

Any additional comments?

Jonah Wizard could totally be a pop star.

So good

We love to listen to every book in this series, but can someone please introduce the narrator to the proper pronunciation of the word familiar? Hint, it isn't FURmiliar.

Who is Vesper 1

The way this book started out just had me on the edge of my seat, I was hooked and ready to hear the rest of this book and hear what is happening in Dan and Amy's life. This book I like because instead of the family fighting each other they have to work together in this book to find out information about their enemy the Vespers. Amy and Dan are back at it again traveling all around the world, this time looking for a specific painting, like always this is a life or death situation but now it is not their lives that are on the line but the lives of 7 of their family members all from different branches who have all been kidnapped at the same time from different parts of the world. This time Amy and Dan need the assistance of other who are not part of the Cahill family, will these people understand and accept the little explanations that are given to them by the Cahill kids is a mystery, but one that has me on the edge of my seat to find out of Amy's boyfriend accepts the crazy mysterious situation he is in, or if Dan's friendship with his online friend can withstand this new clue hunt. This time while taking directions from the Mysterious Vesper 1 tracking down a painting, Amy and Dan have their family members who were not nabbed trying to help them figure out who Vesper 1 is and what he is really after.

The fun adventures continue

Great book to follow the 39 clues. Initially was confused about what books to read next between all the different series. This one I found so far to be the best directly after completing the 39 clues primary series. Another great round of fun adventure and history lessons. Keeps you very stimulated. Learned more about Rome than I thought I could ever know based on Percy Jackson and then followed by the 39 clues. Very fun read for families.
