The Name of This Book is SECRET

The Name Of This Book Is Secret

Where should I start?

First, the author does not want to tell everybody who he is. Why? Because it’s a secret! You should’ve got it just by looking at his name – no mother on earth will name her child “Pseudonymous.”

Second, he says he shouldn’t be writing this book in the first place. According to Mr. Bosch, the details are so secret, he can’t tell you the real names or the real places or even the real time of events. Now, if you ask me that’s bad story-telling.  Lucky (?) for us,  he can’t help himself and he goes on writing the book anyway (It’s published. I’m sure – I’m holding the book right now!) For his reader’s persistence  (like he can stop me from flipping the page, duh),  the best he can do under such circumstances is to give aliases to his characters – Cassandra and Max-Ernest.  Why those names? No idea. It’s like naming your dogs, perhaps? Just happens.

Anyway, the whole shindig is about the adventures of Cassandra and Max-Ernest.  It starts when they discover The Symphony of Smells, a box filled with colorful vials that each contain a distinct scent.  Being kids and nosy ones at the least, they stumble upon the diary of a dead magician, who happens to be the owner of  those smelly vials. Just like the Scooby Doo kids, they get themselves into trouble – getting pursued by villains who call themselves the Midnight Sun (makes me wonder how do villains come up with names?) and other stuff that’s usually dangerous for meddling children. There is some kind of unravelling in the end that I can’t really say. (I don’t want to sound like Mr. Pseudonymous, but it’s for your own good.) What I can tell you though is that somebody got grounded by their mom(That’s actually the moral of the story – don’t go solving mysteries without your parent’s permission).

You ask yourself what’s the secret then? Well, it’s …. SECRET. Sorry, even I have to agree with Mr. Pseudonymous on this one. You have to read his book and maybe burn it afterwards (like secret spies). Or if you find that wasteful, you might as well keep it somewhere secret, somewhere safe (like what Gandalf told to Frodo – go watch Lord of the Rings if you don’t know who I’m talking about.).

With all the anonymity and secrecy that ‘s going on, I’m happy to tell you though that this is the 1st book of The Secret Series (Yes, there are sequels. Authors have to make a living,  Pseudonymous Bosch is not an exemption). However, if you’re like pinching lunch money (or in my case,  salary – sounds so adult!) it doesn’t hurt that we have to pay for such SECRET story. (Information is supreme, remember that!) No matter how crazy his book writing is,  I have to give credit to Mr. Bosch because he is a wonderful entertainer. I wouldn’t be surprised if he joins the circus one day – he’ll be the best clown ever! But for now, let’s bribe him with more DARK chocolate so that he wouldn’t get any ideas. After all, he still has to finish what he had started!

    I think that this article on Pseudonymous Bosch is interesting, but not helpful. I’m investigating Mr. Pseudonymous Bosch and discover his true identity. You may find this very peculiar, but I’m a detective, or should I say, kid detective. I’m telling the truth! Sadly, people don’t believe me when I tell them I’m a detective. Of course I don’t have an agency or anything of that sort, but I’m not your regular everyday eleven-year old kid. I’m smarter than any kid I know (not that I’m self-centered or anything). Anyways, I’m getting far ahead of myself and giving too much information. All I wanted to say is that this article is exceptional, but doesn’t help my investigation. Thank you.

      Yes. When I made the mistake of reading it, my hands were super-glued to the book! LOL! So I had no choice but to finish it in one sitting. 🙂
