Loved the book!

Maybe it's my love for libraries showing through, but this book was awesome. An overnight lock-in in a tricked-out library made by a billionaire gamemaker? I'm so there. There are hover boots to wear to reach the books on the top shelf! Robots to answer reference questions! Puzzles to solve before morning! It's like if Willy Wonka was into books and trivia instead of candy. I actually listened to this on audiobook and it was fantastic! — Baileigh F., Walker Library

IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!! I really liked it, it was suggested to me as a good book for Ravenclaws* so I tried it out and voila! It is now apart of my favorite books which includes: HARRY POTTER, Percy Jackson, Spy School, and more! :)
*If you don't know what Ravenclaws are than read Harry Potter! :)

I really loved this book. I couldn’t keep my eyes off this book. My eyes were like glued to it. A definitely must read.

Really cool read for anyone who enjoys juvenile mysteries like the Westing Game, The Name of This Book is Secret or The Mysterious Benedict Society. A lot of books are sprinkled into the dialogue as well which made me want to read everything mentioned.

This book has received a lot of acclaim. I liked it, but it didn't quite live up to the hype for me. I found the characters to be "types" and they seemed pretty two-dimensional. I loved the library setting and the literary references, but it all seemed a little contrived. The being locked-in at the library plot device seemed wildly implausible. And since most public libraries are chronically short of money for luxuries, an incredibly lavish library like this just seemed absurd. So I liked it, but I didn't love it. If the book inspires readers to try some of the many books mentioned in it, however, then that would be a great thing.
