" The conclusion is a bit hasty in my opinion, like Ted just seems to get everything right. I can literally predict the ending. But a great book as a whole, very appealing and drawing! <3 " said.

" Great mystery, great characters. We all enjoyed it. " said.

" This book is written from the point of view of a boy with a unique syndrome that makes him very smart. I also enjoyed that it took place around the London landmark the London eye which I have ridden on a prior trip to London. I also enjoyed the simplicity of a young adult book! " said.

" I read this book tragically after Dowd died. I got it for free from school.This book had an interesting concept and an interesting plot for me, unfortunately however, I found the characters and execution underwhelming which is why I could only give this 3 stars.I don't know, I think I was expecting some killer plot twist at the end and that didn't happen. " said.

" We listened to the audio edition, and my almost 10 year-old son and I were absolutely riveted by the story. The narration, by Paul Chequer is excellent, so much so, that when we returned from our road trip with only a fraction of our audio book listened to (as usual), rather than finishing the book more quickly in paperback, we kept listening to it in the car, whenever possible. I found myself wanting to make excuses to go out driving and get stuck in traffic. " said.

"Agreeing with those who said it's a bit reminiscent of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, although for a younger audience. It is a fast paced story, and I think the audience will enjoy solving the mystery with the kids, although I'm not sure they have the clues to do so as much as they can follow along?

My peeve with the book is in its shape, and this is my new peeve. This is not a 400 page book, but the trim size is so small it makes it seem long. Its not pleasurable (to me) to read a small but fat book. Anyone know the source of this trend?

I am currently reading the London eye mystery by Siobhan Dowd. This book is about Ted and Kat two siblings and their cousin Salim. These three kids are on there way to a theme park with a BIG Ferris wheel called the London eye. Ted and Kat are to scared to get on, but Salim gets right on. Thirty minutes pass and the pod that he got in thirty minutes ago reaches the ground, but where's Salim? Well you will just have to read the book to find out! I can REALLY relate to Ted and Kat because they are both really scared to go on the London eye and so would eye, once I went on a ferris wheel about two years ago and I was so scared I started to cry! Especially when we were at the top! I think the author uses really good detail and leaves me in suspense just about every chapter I read. I would rate this book overall ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (five stars) because I really have been enjoying this book and I think it is definitely one of my favorites yet!

"What a great young adult mystery by Siobhan Dowd! I've been meaning to read it for a while, and I finally picked it up when I was desperate for a good mystery read. Reminiscent of Roald Dahl's respect for children and their intelligence and worth, The London Eye Mystery has as its main character and narrator a boy named Ted, whose brain is wired differently than those around him, enabling him to view the world from a less constricted place. When his cousin, Salim, comes for a visit and disappears from a ride on the London Eye, Ted must use all his creative thinking and his sister Kat's help at reading people to determine what happened to Salim. The adults involved are predictably dismissive of Ted's observations and deductions, excepting the police inspector in charge of the investigation. As well as a puzzling mystery, Dowd provides a gentle prodding at how adults should be more open to a child's insights, especially those who are easily discarded because of their "different wiring."
