4.0 out of 5 stars Learning History, One Clue at a Time Jan. 1 2009
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
If you are a veteran of The Maze of Bones, you now know about the Cahill family and the race to find and solve the 39 clues, have visited the catacombs in Paris, and know the answer to the first clue (Shh! Don't tell!). In One False Note, you'll gain new perspectives on what it has meant in the past to be a Cahill, learn a lot about Mozart, gain a little knowledge about Venice, and find and solve a second clue (which you'll probably figure out on your own by drawing on what you learned from the first clue).

Once again, Amy and Dan are still off trying to find the 39 clues with a Mozart musical composition in the hand writing by the master himself. To save money, they are on a clunky train headed for Vienna. Dan's amazing memory turns out to be essential, Amy's willingness to put up with her brother keeps the peace, and au pair, Nellie Gomez, patiently does the heavy lifting where an adult is essential. All of them are worried about Saladin not being willing to eat cat food (being used to fresh red snapper) as the cat gets thinner and thinner. There's lots of action as the Cahills seek to thwart each other.

A major part of the story's charm is that the opposing Cahills are such dunces while having exaggerated opinions of themselves. It's not hard for Dan and Amy to outwit them at virtually every turn. But the youngsters still have a lot to learn about keeping what they know to themselves.

To me, the only thing better than a mystery . . . is an extended mystery. The idea of putting together all of these books, trading cards, and the Web site permits the mystery lover to enjoy the unknown (which is always so much more exotic than the known) for a long time. It's terrific.

As a stand-alone book, this one is pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous March 27 2009
Much as book 1, Maze of Bones, focused on the life and times of Benjamin Franklin, book 2, One False Note, focuses on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his sister Nannerl. Continuing almost immediately after book one, the pace of this one is much quicker. Moving from Paris to Vienna, the Cahill kids, Dan, Amy and their chaperon are ambushed by the big burly Holt clan. Narrowly escaping them, the dangers from other family members only intensifies. With more bombs, boat crashes, and run-ins with everyone from their aunts, uncles and cousins to Benedictine monks, this book is one wild chase scene.

The adventures in this book take our trio from Paris to Vienna then onto Salzburg then finally Venice. This book not only has a faster pace than book one, but also more dialogue. Some of that may be due to the writing style of the different authors, and some the point in the story arch and plot development. Gordon Korman does an excellent job continuing from the story started by Rick Riordan in Book 1.The transition is almost effortless. The feel is slightly different but the story continues to flow well.

It is interesting reading a series of 10 books with seven different authors, in part because we do not know how much freedom each author has. Do they write their section and hand it off and the next author has to create from there, or is there an overarching story arc already sketched out and the authors are composing the different scenes as movements in a musical piece? Either way this book is excellent and like the first leaves the reader hungry for more. I cannot honestly remember the last time I read a series that was so addictive. I picked up the next book immediately and dread when I will have to await the next release.

By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
O.k. first I have to confess I listened to a library loan from my local library but through an app on my Iphone called Overdrive. I did not make a note of the reader but I am pretty sure it was the same reader as book one. I know I was going to be left with a cliff hanger as they now sell 10 book bundles and I saw some spinoffs. Some people could tell that we changed writers but the story and characters seemed pretty consistent to me.

By now the pattern is set. Dan, Amy, and Nellie navigate through the gauntlet of unscrupulous cousins in the race to find the next clue. Some fantasy sprinkled with some real facts make us wonder if we are being spoon fed history on the way. As the title implies maybe a little about music also. By the end of this episode you will get a new insight as to what the clues really are.

I doughty I will make it to the end but I cannot help but get at least one more book:
"The Sword Thief"

5.0 out of 5 stars One False Note Jan. 17 2009
Amy and Dan Cahill are back in the second exciting installment of The 39 Clues series. In the first book, the siblings are drawn into an exciting and often extremely dangerous hunt to find 39 clues. Following various leads, the kids travel all over the world to uncover hidden meanings and break secret codes. Together these clues will lead to extremely powerful secret knowledge.

After following the first clue, Amy and Dan are in search of information about another famous Cahill relative, Mozart. The kids also learn some very interesting information about Mozart's talented but virtually unknown sister. Onward to Vienna where the kids will uncover another piece of the puzzle. As always, danger, conspiracy, and relatives competing for the prize are just around the corner.

Read the book. Then, be sure to go online to the 39 Clues website. Even more games, puzzles, and clues are available.
