Nowhere close to being as good as the "mysterious Benedict society" books

I really enjoyed this look into Nicholas Benedict's childhood. Parts of it were sorrowful, yet Nicholas pulls through and thrives in the process, learning about himself and others.
The themes of the importance of family & friends, loyalty, belief in self are in the forefront, in a humorous, interesting and warm way. Learning to work together and confront bullies also plays a large role.
The Mysterious Benedict series has interesting characters and situations that kids will love. This is a wonderful addition to the series.

With such a great title and concept, I am disappointed with this novel. It is the most pretentious, long-winded read I have ever suffered through. Why 470 pages to get to a worthy treasure, but why? I cannot picture the young person that would fancy this read. The premise is so intriguing, and it is very difficult for me to be bored with a read, but this is not a series that I will follow or recommend to my students.
