The Puzzling World of Winston Breen by Eric Berlin

8 Jun

This week I read the first book in a series about a boy who likes puzzles.  I read the second book a while ago and just decided to read the first since I had nothing else to read.  The book, as you might have guessed from the title, is about a boy named Winston Breen.  He loves puzzles.  He does then all the time, and even tries to find his own puzzles.  This book is about a twenty-five year old puzzle to find a very valuable ring.  Winston thinks it will be easy.  But things don’t go quite as planned.

I like this author’s style of writing.  It’s written in third person, but it follows Winston.  The author also includes lots of puzzles, and it tells you to either continue reading or flip to a certain page in the back to find out the answer to the puzzle.  I like that because you can try to solve the puzzle yourself, and if you don’t get it, you don’t have to Google it or spend a lot of time trying to find the answer.  Some of the puzzles were pretty easy, but others were practically impossible.
