    Wow, this book definitely keeps you on edge! There is never a dull moment and Sade and Carter anlways seem to be getting into some kind of trouble. Also I wondered about Muffin the cat because she didn’t seem like a normal cat, but I was very surprised to learn her true identity!

    I can’t really get into this book mainly because it isn’t really my genre. My genre is usually fiction/nonfiction involving computers or real life stories of civil rights. Although, one thing that I find interesting is the strong relation to Egyptian culture. So, yea.

    Ya this book just keeps haveing another thing happen! There is always somthing happening even during sleep! So many of the events are out of the blue. i have really enjoyed this book.

    i like this book alot its one of the few books i can acually get into i think the best part of the book is going to be when they rescue the dad i cant wait to read that part of it.

    I thought that carter and Sadie were totally awesome. I also thought that towards the end i couldn’t put it down, I read it in three days and i want to read the other books in the series.

    I think I’m finally starting to get into this book. I agree with you both though, it’s not really my type and I liked the Percy Jackson series better but I also love that something is always happening. My favorite Character is Bast the cat godess. :)

    I agreee with all of you, this book really isn’t my type, but I am getting more into it as they progress in the book. It is catching my attention. I don’t really like that in the Percy Jackson series you know a little about the Greek Gods and you understand stuff about them, but in this one I feel like I don’t know that much about them. But it is still interesting. I like learning new things.

    I cant believe austin read it in three days i barely got caught up to where i need to be. I also really like Bast too she is my favorite. I really like how it is one of thoes different types of books that are kind of weird but really interesting thoes are my favorite types of books.

    Still can’t get into this book, it is boring to me…

  10. Holly H — December 15, 2011 @ 4:27 pm

    I have really liked the book so far! It is cool that they are in the sphinx its sounds amazing. I a m at where Sadie is in the hall of ages. They just left Bast awhile ago, I liked her too. I think this is a great book!

    I think its wierd how they think everyone can be trusted if they are somewhere unfamiliar to them you would think mabey they would ask a liitle more question not just go with them especially with all that has happend to them so far i just think that is a little stupid of them.

  12. Alyssa Higgs — December 19, 2011 @ 4:04 pm

    If I were them, I hope I would question things a little more. Like when Amos comes back and they kind of trusted him automatically. I know he is their Uncle and stuff but what about what Zia said? I would try really hard to keep all the important info. away from Amos just in case. Better to be safe than sorry.

  13. aurichra — December 20, 2011 @ 9:09 pm

    You guys made some good points. I definitely think they should be a little less trusting. I’m getting towards the end of the book and it’s really surprising me! I expected the ending to be predictable but it’s really surprised me so far.

  14. Kajay N — December 21, 2011 @ 7:22 am

    Im almost done with this book and i have really enjoyed it i still havent finished it yet but im sure the ending is really exited. i also cant wait to read the other one i looked that one up and it looked really cool.

  15. Alyssa Higgs — December 21, 2011 @ 4:19 pm

    I am getting closer to the end of the book. I was kind of bummed out that Amos was the one that Set was “possessing.” I wanted it to be Desjardins. it fit his personality a little better. i kind of saw it coming though. but i still felt bad. so far the book has been surprising in some places. but i like it.

  16. Alyssa Higgs — December 22, 2011 @ 7:52 am

    I was surprised at the ending. the whole entire book was surprising. i liked it. at the beginning it was kind of boring but then when the action started more i became more interested in it. although i don’t think i would read it again. maybe. but i don’t know. i kind of liked it though.

    The red pyrmid has been a great book. I think sadie is my favorite! Because she puts things together nicely! But I like carter too!

  18. austin — December 22, 2011 @ 1:00 pm

    i like the Percy Jackson books cause they kind of twist how the gods are but in the red pyramid it’s like the gods do what their supposed to do and they make it seem like they do it all the time.

  19. austin — December 22, 2011 @ 1:02 pm

    i also like bast but my favorite character overall is carter and maybe set i think it’s hilarious that in the end set doesn’t want them dead anymore he’s just like “later”.

  20. austin — December 22, 2011 @ 1:05 pm

    i was surprised at the end their mom and dad turned out to be gods and rulers of the underworld, usually that’s a bad thing, ……… but it would be kind of cool to live in the hall of judgment and get a tiny little “devourer” to sit on your lap.

  21. Alyssa Higgs — January 2, 2012 @ 8:21 am

    This book was pretty good, i probably wouldn’t read it again. not because i didn’t like it, but because it isn’t really my type of book. it took a while for me to really get into it. it was kind of weird to me. but it was good.

  22. aliyah weaver — February 13, 2012 @ 9:45 am
