This book was AWESOME! Everyone will be pleased!

I thought that this bok was great! everyone should read it

The House Of The Scorpion is the first book I have read by Nancy Farmer. I got so in to it i finished it in three days. This is one of the best books I have read, proubly the best. I could not put it down! Although the ending was rushed it is still one of the best books. I recomend it to every 1.

This is one of the best books i have ever read! It is gripping and suspenseful, i could not put the book down until i finished it. It even helped me learn some spanish! please consider reading this book.

this book is great i will really give this book a 5 for all the suspence it gave me while i was reading.

This book was recommened to me by my soccer teammate. It's the best book that I have ever read! Mystery and suspense kept me reading. This book is like one of those 'I can't put it down' type of book. If you haven't read it, please I highly recommened it to everyone! This book it acually a 10 out of a 5!

This is the best book I have read! I read chapters and could not put the book down for hours! I recommend people to read it because not only is it exciting but you learn a lot about the characters and of words you have probably never heard of in the English dictionary. I rate this book 5 out of 5. I wish I could rate this book way higher than five! Nancy Farmer is a very good and exciting author. I am glad I read and bought this book!!!

I am fourteen and this book was a good book to read. I had to read this book for school, and I usually do not enjoy reading, but this book changed all that. The book was a mind challenging and made me think when I was reading it. I think all teenagers who like to read should read this book. Also, the people that do not like to read should read it too becasue I think they will enjoy this book as well. Everyone should own a copy and read it as fast as possible.
