Overrated Book
Submitted 4/3/2019 by amazing2009

When I choose this book i thought it would be good.

When I brought it Israel and started reading it got boring.
I thought it would be better because it had adventure and "video games".
PS I didn't read the whole because comes out of nowhere.

I liked this book.

At the last minute, Ted is left his great uncle’s apartment. He wants to explore it with his best friend, Caleb, but his father invites the daughter of his new colleague to help as well. They must find the treasure hidden in the apartment before it’s too late...if there’s really any treasure at all. Imposters, suspicions, and more threaten the trio. Then, there’s the hard-to-face question: Why would a celebrated WW2 veteran have something to hide, and what would it be?

Click Here to Start is now my favorite book! I liked this book so much because it hooked me in and kept me that way. I would recommend this book to others because of how good the book is. Someone who would enjoy this book is someone who likes escape games. The reason for this is because the book is about a real-life escape game. An escape game is a game where you’re locked in a room and find clues to get out of the room. I learned what an escape game is because of this book. This book is a Jewish book because the main character is a half Asian half Jewish boy.

I loved this book so much! I was always on my toes and the suspense at the end was crazy! It made me think of friendship because even though the boys didn't really want to hang out with a girl, they still became friends. And if the main character had not had his friends, he might not have been able to figure out the mystery! So if you like mysteries, puzzles, and amazing plot twists, this is the book for you!

Amazing book, with very colorful and fluid writing and perfectly drawn characters with their own personalities and quirks. The fact that Ted never really told his friends about the game that basically was his life, and that it wasn't even explained much at all was slightly off-putting, but with the cutoff ending, hopefully there will be an Amazing Adventure #2!

This book was amazing. It made me think more about thinking outside the box, friendship, and family. It wasn't a super-religious story, but it still taught me about Judaism. I normally stuff the books that I receive in the bookshelf and never read them, but from the moment I saw this, I knew I'd enjoy it. It was a great novel that left me reading for hours, and it kept me up at night.

This book is about Ted Gerson, who loves playing video games, especially escape-the-room games. When his great-uncle Ted dies and leaves him to find a hidden treasure, Ted must find it using his gaming skills. But is that enough to deal with the danger that awaits him? If you love adventure, this book is a great choice.
