I know a lot of us were expecting The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey (The Mysterious Benedict Society, 2) to be good, but I have to say, this book actually exceeded my expectations. I have a lump in my throat and I can't stop thinking about it. I usually spend time making detailed notes while reading a book but, at one point, I opened Notes on my computer just to type "this is so good"

Because The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey (The Mysterious Benedict Society, 2) is adored by most people who read it, I am forced to conclude that most people need to read more. A whole lot more. You should be embarrassed if you like this book. Seriously. The moment I became a book snob, I became so embarrassed to be seen reading it that I accused the guy sitting next to me on the subway of putting the book on my lap while I wasn't paying attention. "How dare you, sir! Have you no decency?" I exclaimed excitedly in my native language.

Ok but for real.. I need things to be fixed. I need this to be fixed. I need this book now, and I need things to be fixed like right now.

There are two types of books, usually, that makes one feel like there are no words to describe the experience: They are either unbelievably detrimental, or exceptionally (and positively) impactful. Given the overall high rating, it is redundant to tell, to which category does The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey (The Mysterious Benedict Society, 2) belong. I don't think there are that many books, especially fiction, that could leave such a profound effect on a reader's mind.
