I'm not a big fan of detectives but I love adventure. I might try it! =I

To be fairly honest, I am not very interested in this book, at least by reading the details that were given. It may be interesting, but with the discription of the book so far, it doesn't feel like it has a good connection with me. It does not feel like the type book that will catch my atttention.

This book sounds very interesting and adventourous i'll think about reading it.

It sounds like an interesting book because of all the mysteries going on. I would really enjoy reading that story.

I don't think this book is for me. I'm not big on mysterey stories. I like horror books more.

This book sounds like something that I would see in a library, and have to check it out.

I remember reading this book in the fifth grade. I read a couple chapters, but honestly, I got bored reading it. I'm more interested in dramatic, romantic, and fantasy books. Every now and then, I'll look into a mystery book, but not often.

This book sounds like something I'd find in my bookcase. It sounds good and I'd like to read it.

That sounds interesting. I'll check it out!

I only like adventure but it will be a good book for me to read and discover what detectives are.
