I thought this was an exciting book with suspense and amazing pictures that help us see what is actually going on. It has details so good, they stick in your mind. I liked this book because it keeps you stuck with your nose in the book, wanting to know what's going to happen next! I felt so nervous, I just wanted to jump out of my seat! But that's what kept me reading. I kept wondering, "What is going to happen next?" This mystery book reminds me of Christmastime. At Christmastime I use clues like the size of the boxes and store logos on bags to help me figure out what I am going to get. In this mystery book there were clues that helped me figure out what had really happened in the story.
I recommend this book because people who like action-packed, suspenseful mystery books will love this one. There are several parts in the story that might catch the interest of a mystery reader. I think that the witch might catch someone's interest, or the Hardy's sense of humor. Maybe even the setting of Black Hollow, or how the legendary witch stalks the night with her bloodcurdling cries would pull the reader into the book. Anyone with a good taste for mystery books I'm sure will enjoy The Clue of the Screeching Owl.
