    One thought on “Secrets of the Book”

    1. Nowadays, every time I read a book with a beginning, a middle and an end, I love it. There is a trend among authors to write only series or trilogies and the old fashion way of writing a complete story in one volume is fading quickly. This book was written with a young adult audience in mind. It is very entertaining and the plot is simple and will get you hooked on the development of the story, cheering for our young group of 6th graders. Spencer and Gregor are best friends. Gregor has a level o [...]

    2. Spencer's mother makes him volunteer at a rest home, and Ed, the man he is visiting, gives him a Pandora's Book, which has the ability to bring famous people from the past to life. This is a bit of a problem with Socrates appears to Spence and his friend Gregor. Gregor is on the autism spectrum, so doesn't do well with loud noises or change in routine, but does fairly well talking to one of his idols. Of course, nothing is ever that simple-- a man shows up with Pandora's Other Book, looking for [...]

    3. This definitely wasn't the worst book I've ever read. Not by a long shot. It was decent. Decent-ish. But I had a lot of issues with it, which may be due to the fact that I am an adult, and this is intended for a middle-school audience. However, I'm also a Youth Services Librarian *dons cape*, so I also know what kids are looking for (I know! I just ended a sentence with a preposition! Sorry!).It has become quite chic to give the M.C. of a kids/middle grade book some sort of disability to valian [...]

    4. This Book Is A Keeper.The plot is action packed, but straightforward. Spencer is given "Pandora's Book" by Ed, a resident in a nursing home who Spencer visits on occasion. Spencer and his best friend, Gregor, discover that the historical figures in the book can be called out of the book in the real world. Spencer and Gregor cannot, however, figure out how to get the famous characters back into the book, and Ed has disappeared without leaving any instructions. Bad guys, or are they good guys, or [...]

    5. Imagine having a book full of images of famous people and with some bizarre sliding of your fingers you can bring them to life. Gandhi, Lincoln, Newton…boom, they appear before you, you can have a conversation with the person, and then put them back in the book. In this novel, there’s such a thing. It’s called Pandora’s Book.Spencer meets an elderly man named Ed at a nursing home. He’s the keeper of the book and hands it over to him. Ed disappears and Spencer has no idea how to fully u [...]

    6. I won a copy and got it today. I put in the entry so I can give it as a gift to my friends sons in hope to give them something to read. The cover is beautiful and it starts off well. I think they would enjoy this book very well since it seems like it falls into the Hardy Boys and Encyclopedia Brown. It is a good quick read. This is really a good book for Middle Class boys. The author did a good job

    7. Both my 10 year old grandson and I read this book. My grandson loved it and read it in two days. I was hooked by the first chapter because the idea of Pandora’s Book was so interesting. The whole concept is highly imaginative and will appeal to many children. This book is a wonderful mix of both fantasy and history.

    8. Thank you Good Reads First Reads for having given our school the chance to win this book. Once it has been added to our collection a student review of the book will be added.

    9. Looking at the cover, I understand why this was a fail. You think it will be a cool adventure book, but as you begin to read it quickly becomes clear that the author is trying to jam too much in. Easy to read with great descriptions. However, this is where I rapidly began to dislike this book. None of the characters described look the way they do on the cover. For example: Gregor (boy shown on far right of cover) is described as mixed dark skinned Indian boy with dark hair, and light blue eyes. [...]

    10. It was okay-ish.Reasons why I did not like it:1. I could see the intent too clearly. A visually impaired hero, an autistic side kick, a 'greats-of-history' theme. All too conspicuous. Integrate your themes, writers, please.2. The voice. I call this voice the contemporary pop American voice. It's irreverent, snarky without being witty, flippant, entitled, self conscious and dumbed down. It is also highly annoying and I hate it whenever I encounter it.3. The prayers. I don't want nor need god in m [...]

    11. Spencer's mother insists he do volunteer work and that's how he meets Ed in the nursing home. One day Ed shows him a magical book full of photos of some of the most famous (and good) people in the world and makes some of those people step out of the book and talk to them. Then he drops a bomb on Spencer telling him the book is his now, and that he should take it home and get to know it. This is all well and good except for how Spencer and his best friend Gregor accidentally let out (and lose!) S [...]

    12. Loved this book it was a great read I hope the author Writes more in this series it was also a free book from first reads

    13. Summary:Spencer has been forced to volunteer at a retirement center. He reluctantly goes along with it, but doesn't like it until Ed hands over this strange book, Pandora's Book, and asks Spencer to become the guard of that book. Spencer and his friend Gregor find out that Pandora's Book full of pictures of positive famous dead people allows the guard to bring people back to life. After they figure out that they can bring people back, Spencer needs more information from Ed, specifically, how to [...]

    14. This is a fun little book about a 12 year old boy with macular degeneration, his autistic best friend, an old man in a nursing home and Pandora's Book, which contains lots of dead people whom certain, special people can release from its pages. Add in the old man's grand-daughter, a dog, Pandora's Other Book and a couple of characters who get out of the book before the kid really learns how to get them back and you have a rather wonderful adventure.

    15. Greatit's a good thrilling bookthe main characters are also very interesting as well. hey should make a movie of this.

    16. I loved this book! This story has so much fun, excitement, adventure, AND history. I know we should never judge a book by its cover, but I have to say; Secrets of the Book’s cover makes it appear to be a children’s book. It is, but it’s so much more. Readers of all ages will enjoy this book. History buffs will love this book. Teachers will love this book. Mothers will love this book and appreciate the fact that they can listen to it with the kids in the car. I highly recommend it for your [...]

    17. Rating 4.5. I loved Spencer, Ed, Gregor, and Mel and the whole world that Erin Fry created for them -- much of it a real world and much of it a wonderful "what if" world. Each of the characters has challenges, each different, but each difficult to overcome or deal with nonetheless. Spencer is slowly going blind, Ed is aging rapidly, Gregor is autistic, and Mel is financially pampered by uncaring, distant parents. Ed is her great-grandfather and only he really cares for her, but they don't see ea [...]

    18. It was on it like a boss No it w as the danger zone and a school of the university of most important thing is to 3

    19. This book is about 2 boys named Gregor and Spencer. Spencer was a volunteer at a Senior Center and he helps an old guy named Ed and Ed was a Guardian of a book named Pandora's book. But Ed had to pass it on so he passed it on to Spencer but he could not handle it. But there was a bad guy that wanted the book and they had a big fight and kill the bad guy. I like the book because it is fantasy.I recommend this book to someone who likes fantasy

    20. Secrets of the Book by Erin Fry is a middle grade novel with a great premise. Sixth grader Spencer Lemon's mom is big on volunteering, which means Spencer does plenty as well. While volunteering at a nursing home he makes friends with Ed, who in turn hands over a very special book without the chance to explain all the necessary details. The book contains famous dead people who can be brought back to life. Unfortunately Ed goes missing and some less than trustworthy characters seem to be popping [...]

    21. Spencer's mom believes in service to the community and when he starts 6th grade begins dropping him off at a senior citizen's home so he can give back as well. Spencer befriends Ed and one day Ed shows him Pandora's Book. By following a particular pattern, people can leap off the page and come to life. He entrusts the book's care the Spencer, but ran out of time to teach him how to use it. Gregor, Spencer's autistic friend, accidentally brings Socrates to life. When he tries calling Ed to find o [...]

    22. Where to begin? The two unlikely heroes of the story; Gregor is autistic and Spencer has degenerative eye disorder. Spencer is deemed the keeper of Pandora's Book from Ed, a man at the local nursing home, and shown how to get historical characters OUT of the book. Unfortunately, Ed is kidnapped before Spencer learns how to get the characters back inside the book. Spencer then learns there is also Pandora's Other Book, which houses infamous characters. Socrates, Al Capone, Teddy Roosevelt, JFK, M [...]

    23. A pretty good young (8-12 or so) book that I read to my kids at bedtime. My 9 year old loved it, the younger ones listened along well, but I don't think they got as much out of it as the 9 year old. The story is pretty good, following along a middle schooler that is far from perfect, who fell into a problem (that could affect the world!) and with his autistic friend and others he meets along the way, figures things out to solve it all. A little bit of magic, a little bit of daring adventure, a l [...]

    24. At his mother's behest, Spencer Lemon, 6th grader, spends a couple of afternoons each week with Ed, a guy in a local nursing home. It turns out Ed has a magic book which brings to life historical characters; Ed tells Spencer the book has chosen him to be the new guardian but he doesn't get a chance to tell him how to use the book before the bad guys arrive and Spencer has to run for his life. Therein starts the adventure which has more twists and turns than I can describe. This would be standard [...]

    25. Good story for my sonI found this story to be an entertaining read. I downloaded this book after getting tired of reading baby books to my son in the NICU; he was born 11 weeks early and he has been in the hospital for the past two months. Anyway.diately following his feedings I'd put him on my chest and read this story to him and it was very calming for him and helped me pass the time. I found the plot of the story was super-easy to follow and found it difficult to stop reading out loud even af [...]

    26. This book reminds me a bit of the movie Night at the Museum but for jr. high readers. The ending gets violent, the appropriateness and level of that, with the reader age that the cover art implies, doesn't match. There are a few funny lines: "Nobody ever killed a Nazi with a butter knife." And one that seems straight from an old time cheesy detective movie: "If he was looking for sympathy, he would have to find it in the dictionary."

    27. I managed to finish this today during a brief respite from my heat-induced two-day migraine. I enjoyed it. It was a fresh story, a fun adventure and had characters I actually liked and found interesting. It was great to see such a great and loyal friendship between Spencer and Gregor. The cover of the book depicts Socrates. Funnily enough, despite that illustration, I couldn't help picture the Socrates from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure throughout my entire reading!

    28. I actually enjoyed this book. It had enough suspense in it to keep me hanging on until the finish. Pandora's Book. A kid with autism (like me) as a best friend. It was action packed. I was surprised that I liked it as much as I did. I would actually like to see a continuation of this book into a series.
