Review #1:

I liked this book because it was very suspenseful and exciting!

Review #2:

I liked "The Name of the Game Was Murder." It involved clues that were difficult to decipher. I enjoy trying to solve the clues before the book reveals the answer.

      Thanks, that’s great to hear! This is a book that’s on the middle school summer reading list here in Kinnelon, and it’s always a popular choice. It’s pretty easy to read, but there are twists and turns in the mystery that keep you interested. Fans of mystery stories might want to give this one a try. Thanks for writing!

    I’m sorry, I couldn’t find any site with audio clips of this particular novel. Unfortunately, it’s also not available as an audiobook, that is, as a book on CD or cassette. In the future, though, you might want to try an audiobook. You can listen to audiobooks at home or in the car or anywhere that you have access to a stereo. Lots of teen novels are now available in this format, and libraries — including Kinnelon — are adding them to their collections. They can be very entertaining, provided you have a good story and a dynamic narrator.

    We have two John Feinstein sports mysteries on CD at the Kinnelon Library. You might want to give those a shot, since you’re a mystery fan. Or, alternatively, maybe you can just pick a novel you’ve liked in the past, check it out in audiobook format, and see if you enjoy it just as much when someone reads it to you. It’s worth a try, isn’t it, particularly if you’re not a huge fan of reading. Thanks for your comment, and best of luck!
