The Project - Brian Falkner

It begins with a book, the most boring book in the world, a book so boring no one could ever read it—the perfect place to hide a dangerous secret.

When best friends Luke and Tommy volunteer to help move books from their library's basement to higher ground during a quick rising flood, they discover the only surviving copy of the most boring book in the world: Leonardo's River, lost for over 100 years. The book is connected to Leonardo da Vinci and is worth millions, so they return that night to steal it. Unfortunately, they're not the only ones with that plan. . . .

Brian Falkner, author of Brain Jack and The Tomorrow Code, delivers another page-turning thriller with heart-pounding action—this time, with a secret from Leonardo da Vinci that could determine the fate of history.

My Review:
Woah. The first book I read of Brian Falkner's was "The Tomorrow Code" (review coming soon) and the time factor in it was epic. However, this blew things out of the water! From beginning to end, you never see where this book is going, and yet once it gets there, it's perfect. Action packed, awesome heroes, twists and turns you absolutely never see coming, this book was purely awesome!

Age Stamp:

Apart from making you think, I really enjoyed the plot of this story, and the enlightening to a some of the reasoning behind the followers of Hitler. The absolute conviction the boys have in what is right and the wrong that should not be upheld was commendable. I also loved the uniqueness to the whole "travel back in time" factor. There have been so many clichéd ways to do this, and I found this new and refreshing. The history to be learnt in amongst the story was also fascinating. This is the kind of book that you wish with all your childlikeness was real.

Hm... I'm having trouble thinking of any for this one. There may have been some very mild language, but apart from that, this book gets two thumbs up for me. 

Publisher info, Other Versions, Series Titles & Curriculum:
