Publisher's Summary

The race is on to find 39 Clues that safeguard a great power, and 14-year old Amy Cahill and her younger brother, Dan, are shocked to find themselves in the lead. The search seems to be taking them to Vienna, and they hold a coded piece of Mozart's sheet music that's the key to finding the next Clue. But tailed by a pack of power-hungry relatives, Amy and Dan can't see if they are sailing toward victory - or straight into a deadly trap.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Good read for kids & adults...

I will read (listen to) books more directed to kids from time to time just to give myself a break from some of the more serious topics, and this is a great listen if you might do the same, or just enjoy a well written series without wanting to listen to something too long..

Right now, the 39 Clues books seem to be my go to when I'm taking one of my breaks..

They are well written, well narrated, and are overall great books for kids or adults. Think of an Indiana Jones adventure from a kids point of view.. Well rounded characters, plot twists that aren't too obvious, etc..

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book (and this series) if you aren't looking for something good and an ongoing story you can follow from time to time.. This is book 2 but I think I'm up to #5 now & have enjoyed every one so far (even bought the next because I was wanting to hear the next step in the adventure)... It will probably take me a few years before I get up to the last book, but I'm in no hurry..

Give the series a try (but start at Book 1)...

fun tale

I really enjoyed the narration. It is a good story, easy to follow, with some education thrown in. I am looking forward to the next book. I would recomend these books to all kinds of kids.

Fun for the whole family

What did you love best about The 39 Clues, Book 2?

We had the first book in hard copy and read it together as a family. We couldn't wait for the library or purchase delivery. Unanimous that all wanted the audio book so we could just dream the story in our heads together. The clarity of the voices, the just right sound effects (not too much or too little) and just the suspense of the story is great! Definitely five stars in our family. We are going to continue alternating reading out loud and listening.

What other book might you compare The 39 Clues, Book 2 to and why?

This was our first audio book and it was wonderful.

What about David Pittu’s performance did you like?

Excellent!!

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

YES! We did this.

11 year old review

This book is exiting and it is very well written. My only complaint is that it can sometimes be a bit hard to know how the characters figure out clues. I definitely recommend this book.

Who to Trust

the story continues, one thing I am a bit confused about is that it doesn't pick up right where it left off.. So now I am starting this book with questions about how the other book ended. This book still started very interesting, the most important thing is that Amy and her brother Dan are on their way to finding another clue. This time they are actually in the lead they went from discovering about Benjamin Franklin to now discovering about Mozart and his sister. Close behind them are still family members who don't want to see them succeed in this race.

Great for kids, a tad tedious for adults

I'm enjoying the series so far, although they are for kids. So long as I listen to some adult books in between, I am good. Kids will like these--enough mystery, history, danger, and excitement for everyone. I just don't understand how the other competitors find out the clues even though they don't have as much info as Dan and Amy. And I hope they don't have to join the Skull and Crossbones in order to be the most important and powerful influencers of civilization!

missing short part on the Chapter 21

Alistair retrieved the homing pin from Motzart's lapel it had been affixed with chewing gum spun on his heel and walked away.
