I thoroughly enjoyed The Many Lives of John Stone. It had mystery, suspense, and adventure to make it very exciting. Having read and loved the first book in the Gideon Trilogy, I decided to try this book, as it was written by the same author. I am really glad that I decided to read this book, because it was fantastic.
The author, Linda Buckley-Archer, has a way with words. She described the details of this book very well; I could picture Stowney House and the palace at Versailles in my head. Also, the characters were down-to-earth and believable.
A part in the book that I relished was when it added the journal entries. I liked reading the story behind John Stone’s life in the present and in the past. I can’t think of anything I didn’t like about this book.
I would recommend this book to anyone ages 11 and up, or to anyone who has read and enjoyed the Gideon Trilogy.
