William Wenton and the Luridium Thief

Cybernetic adventure galore as boffin boy hero takes on the bad guys. There’s something special about William Wenton: he can crack any code, solve any puzzle faster than you can say Bletchley Park.

His grandfather was the same, until he disappeared in mysterious circumstances. When the bad guys turn up for William, he’s rescued by his grandfather’s friends who take him to an extraordinary secret laboratory full of amazing mechanical creatures, and then the adventures really start.

Alex Rider-level thrills and a host of amazing gadgets, makes this a fast paced exciting read. Perfect for fans of Percy Jackson and Alex Rider.

I liked this book I thought it could of been improved if it added a few pictures though. My favourite parts is where William braked the impossible puzzle and he went on his private jet. It was also a book I liked

I liked this book. THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS! . I liked the part when he found the place behind the door and found his grandad and escaped through the submarine.I also think the cybernetic garden and the orb battle were cool.My favorite part was when he caught Abraham Talley.

I really enjoyed this book. I do recommend this book to all of you out there. My favorite part was where either they catch Abraham Talley or at the start where William tries to get into the room (where the impossible code is). But it’s completely full and the there is a man who has a ticket. He is a dwarf and is trying to get in but the guards won’t let him in. Then he leaves so William tries to get in and says my school is in there but not really: his school is actually up on the… Read more »

I liked this book but I think there should have been some pictures to help explain. My favourite part was when he had the mars juice.

We didn’t mind that the book did not have pictures and we liked the sphere dual.

This book was quite good. I’d rather have a different book but I still enjoyed it.

I like how it starts of in Norway and then he go’s to an insinuate so he won’t get killed. Also I like how William is 51% human 49% robot. I like how there is a (THIS IS A SPOILER COMING NOW) giant robot beetle and how he makes one at the end. I like how he has a best friend called Iscia.

I liked this book because it was adventurous. But it was predictable in the way every book is, having the good people win again. For its lack of comedy it made up in description.

When William tries to get into the impossible code room, a dwarf man starts fighting the big security guards and beats them both. Another example of predictable.I would recommend this book to people who like codes and breaking them. Thank u

I liked the book. My favourite part was when William creeped into the room where the impossible puzzle was an solved it and l liked the part where they were running from that old lady.

I really liked this book as it is my favourite book. I think it was really surprising when William managed to get to level one on the orb really quickly and it was a book that you can’t predict what is going to happen which is why I like it. I would rate it 9/10

I found this book a little weird what I found that was scary was when it described the guy that pretended to be his grandfather

I do like this book but I do think it could be a lot better.Especially if it had more images where there was some descriptions about the people , things and the places. I will give this book a 7/10. I would recommend this book to people who are interested about adventure.

the book overall was very good but honestly it had a common storyline and I have heard and read it a lot. A very good book though 🙂
