Summary The Maze of Bones

Summary The Maze of Bones The Maze of Bones Summary · 104 Rick Riordan Ç 4 Summary When their beloved aunt matriarch of the world's most powerful family dies orphaned siblings Amy and Dan Cahi. Book one of The 39 Clues The Maze of Bones by author Rick Riordan is an exciting young readers adventure book that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat your toilet seat That s because the only place worth reading this book is while you ve got a few minutes of privacy on the porcelain throneAmy and Dan Cahill are typical suabbling siblings who believe one another are the most annoying brother and sister in the world However that all changes when they get summoned to their mega rich grandma Grace s funeral along with the rest of the extended Cahill family After the funeral they are all presented with a strange challenge from Grace given through her lawyer They are offered the choice of either one million dollars or a clue to a riddle that the fate of the world depends on the Cahills solving Amy and Dan reluctantly accept the clue forgoing the million dollars along with most of their relatives This clue leads them on a wild adventure to many mysterious locations teeming with danger in an attempt to beat their rival relatives to the finish lineAnd this book had me thinking about its finish line the whole time Riordan and Scholastic the publishers have done an amazing job at pumping out a mass marketed piece of crap These are some of the shallowest most meaningless characters I have ever read about This book is nothing than a horrifically written kids version of the National Treasure films The only credit I ll give this book at all is that it seems my students for the most part really liked it It is certainly written for a kid s mentality However I ve read many young readers books that are still extremely well written and appealing to adults as well as kids so this simply doesn t pass the grade

The Maze of Bones

Summary The Maze of Bones The Maze of Bones Summary · 104 Rick Riordan Ç 4 Summary Rious fortuneBook includes game cards which the reader may use to play an online version of the treasure hunt. In Which Rick Riordan Attempts Another Harry Potteresue Cash Cow Good God is this man the most shameless author currently working in children s literature First the highly derivative but at least marginally entertaining Percy Jackson and now this a hokey National Treasure meets Amazing Race mash up 10 books each written by a different author that follow a sibling duo as they globetrot attempting to piece together the titular clues in order to reveal a single earth shattering prize that will restore the power of their family name Come On I m all on board for books that tantalize reluctant readers but this is just one poorly executed paper thin Money Train that sacrifices excellent ideas and promises of excitement for soulless character building and trite episodic adventures For the sake of arguing about plausibility I m going to suspend all disbelief at the patently absurd plot and pay attention to the most egregious errors errors that cannot be cast aside simply because the book will appeal to many children Reluctant readers aren t stupid Aliteracy isn t the product of stupidity But this book treats its readers like they re stupid and that s what I resent than anything else The one dimensionality of Dan and Amy is insulting enough they should have development than Good At Math And Typical Male Impulsiveness Dan and Loves To Read And Is Scared But Determined Amy What s even repulsive is the development of the secondary and tertiary characters Nellie the au pair is a lazy iPod attached twenty something who suddenly starts speaking Spanish Is it an attempt for Riordan to show off some of his linguistic know how Is it an attempt to create a multicultural character Who knows Nellie argues on the phone with her father in Spanish and then it s never brought up again except for her to admit uite casually that she also speaks French which comes in handy when the kids go to France In Nellie s words Duh My mom taught French She was like FrenchPerhaps the most insulting endeavor to add a multicultural spin to the book is the character Jonah Wizard A swaggering reality television star Wizard is a crass attempt to create a thuggish streetwise black character who plays up his cultural identity to the cameras but is actually much less black around people he knows Witness as he says in front of the paparazzi Yo My peeps and then inside a car without the flashing bulbs of the press speaks without any vernacular whatsoever Even when the reader is first introduced to Jonah Wizard we are told that he tries to act like a street punk which makes his patois even caricature like Hand me the clue homes he demands to the executor of the will ARE YOU KIDDING ME And then we learn his reality show is called Who Wants To Be A Gangsta that he has an album called Gangsta Life and that France has just released his pop up children s book called you guessed it Le Li l Gangsta Livre Instantan Jonah Wizard is a disgusting stock character who is one freshly rolled joint shy of being completely racist The fact that author is a middle aged white man makes the character even insulting and less authentic Riordan should be ashamed of himself Want bad character development Meet the pumped up Holt family who wear matching athletic gear and whose patriarch shouts ridiculous things like Company FALL IN the Kardashian like Kabras who jetset around and smuggle weapons onto planes and Irina the former KGB spy who hides poison tipped needles in her fingernails It s like Riordan sat down and pulled together every single unlikely but cliched character possible and thought But how can I cram them all into one book It would be a satire if it weren t written so damned seriously which is a problem in itself The writing Oy The plot driven storyline filled with the typical I don t know how to write a mystery so I m just going to have the characters make silly guesses is so ludicrously bad that it feels like it s been cobbled together by eight different ghost writers and smooshed into perfectly contained danger filled episodes During a house fire Amy and Dan are crawling on their hands and knees below the smoke line yay fire safety when Amy notices ornate dragon carvings on the wall that all seem to be leading to an exit They are A secret passageway that leads the duo to safety Seriously Even Dan Brown Grand Poobah Of Bad Action Oriented Writing would call shenanigans on that Then there s the bombing of the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia that decimates one team but leaves Dan and Amy curiously unscathed even though they were inches from the detonation Add to this that book is insanely predictable Every time Amy and David find a clue or a scrap of information that will lead to a clue one of the other teams has sneaked up on them and either hears the clue or steals it Then there s a fight both physical and vocal That plot contrivance doesn t get old at allRiordan s final failure is his inability to capture a solid tone which gives the book a truly obnoxious inconsistency Panicky episodes are carelessly turned around with unbelievable sibling banter that paints Dan as a goofball and Amy as a shrill harpy after being told that sedan chairs are not meant to be occupied by his scrawny 90 pound frame Dan proclaims RESOLUTION Start eating ice cream Riordan must think that reluctant readers like corny humor because his misunderstanding of what young adults believe is funny is peppered throughout the book a dog that rolls over and plays dead when commanded to pay attention a hotel in Paris whose name translates into House of Roaches and Dan s incessant ADD laden distractions and uips will only provoke eye rolling from much of its intended audience It all smacks of Trying Too Hard Also Trying Too Hard The heavy handed Harry Potter copping First in Percy where the similarities were so obvious that even the names had the identical number of letters HarryPercy RonaldGrover AnnabethHermione now in The 39 Clues where we read about a House divided into uarters with each house representing a particular archetype The houses are governed by a dying then dead figurehead whose encyclopedic knowledge is cherished by some and scorned by others Additionally the protagonists are reluctant heroes who realize their fate is to protect the world from falling in the hands of ne er do wellers The fact that Gordon Korman another author of dubious talents writes the follow up guarantees that I will definitely not continue with the series
