Spicy, sweet and Christmassy
The Einstein Code left me wondering what was going to happen to Ben and Jess and now after reading the second book of this trilogy lots has happened but I’m still in a state of suspense! The great strength of J D Welch, in my opinion, is that she cleverly takes the story from one exciting incident to another while leaving a big question in the air. I loved the excitement and I am certain it is pitched just right for its main audience – young people. I tried to impress a young person after reading this book by saying I would write him a message in digraphs code. “Make it hard because we did them in primary school” he replied! But he did like the joke from the book about the stiffs.
“As he stepped forwards Ben got a whiff of a familiar fragrance: spicy, sweet and Christmassy. He stepped closer to the vendor to check. He looked at Ben, and .........” This, to me, is one of the many turning points in the story that is worded so well.
The storyline I presume will evolve into its finale in the final chronicle.
How long do I have to wait to read The Quantum Code?
