    Good book. A bit boring at times but still a good book. Good for those who like a bit of mystery and a bit of fantasy at the same time.

Although you do miss out on some details of the protagonists, you could read this book without having read the previous installment, THE NAME OF THIS BOOK IS SECRET. When you read IF YOU'RE READING THIS, IT'S TOO LATE, it is as though you are being told a story by the campfire. The characters are well-developed, easy to relate to, and have a good sense of humor. Because of the short chapters and common footnotes, I see this as a great book for a reluctant reader. It is easy to pick up where you left off and it takes you down many paths at once, keeping you interested. The footnotes typically add a humorous aspect to an interesting mystery, allowing the reader to venture in a new direction before continuing on with the story. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It had a strong storyline with characters that took risks and maintained and created friendships.

"If You're Reading This, it's Too Late," by Pseudonymous Bosch is another mysterious and adventurous book following the previous book. Once again, Cass and Max-Ernest are set on a mission to find the Secret, but more importantly (this time,) the homunculus. In the beginning of Cass and Max- Ernest's journey, a new boy named Yoji (nicknamed Yo-Yoji (for saying "yo" so much)) come into class. On a field trip, while Cass and Max-Ernest are still on their quest, Yo-Yoji bugs the two collaborators so much just to know what the "Secret" Cass and Max- Ernest were talking about. However, Cass manages to shoo away Yo-Yoji, so that the two can finish their mission. This time, their mission is very important because they are part of the Terces Society (Secret spelled backwards.) Apparently, the Midnight Sun (as known as the enemy), tricks Cass and Max- Ernest into coming into their ship. After being tied up and held as prisoners, Cass and Max- Ernest manage to break free. However, you have to read the book to find out why the homunculus was so important and that the Secret was. I would suggest this book to those who like to read in suspense and mystery. Don't give up now! You will )someday figure out the Secret. The next book of these series, (the Secret Series,) is "This Book is Not Good for You," (I think I can tell you're questioning why there are so many weird titles. if you want to read an adventure full of mystery and suspense, read this book!

    The boys like the action, I like the character development. The author uses nice big juicy words that are fun to read aloud and stretch the boys' vocabulary without noticeable pain. The plot is a bit thin at points, but the characters are too charming to lose us. We're primed and ready for the next in the series... The boys like the action, I like the character development.

The interview just made the book better and at the same time made it worse.. get what I mean?? Just when you thought something couldn't get any better or worse, something else comes up and made it better and worse at the same time!! I really want to meet Pseudonymous Bosch!

    Prologue: No, Bosch, you are NOT the greatest writer of all time. So, don't even suggest it.

Also, what on God's Green Ethical Earth would entice you to suggest eating an animal!? o_o Pardon me, Sir, but are you ****ing bonkers!? No matter. I still pretty much like you. Now onto the review of your book... If You're Reading This, It's Too Late pretty much effectively continues the stories of the child-heroes, Cass and Max-Earnest from where the first book left off. The story itself is quite good and has just a hint of actual fantasy contained within it (I.E. The Homonculus). And if you're one of my Superior-Fans, then you know how much I love a good fantasy read. And since we're now on the subject-matter of this book, I am rather fond of the world-building of this novel, as well as the last one. Even though it's only on Earth, but it's not without its charm! Plus, the way the characters are portrayed is on a level not often seen in a story like this. My favorite heroine will always be Cass. Can you blame me? She's a survivalist!! Plus, the humor this book includes almost had me rolling on the floor, laughing copters!!... Almost... And now onto the...Not-so-good points which are comprised of this book... 1: The flatulence...Yuck! Mr. Bosch, you don't need to include this in your works, do you? O_O I mean, it's bad enough you stuck it blatantly in your first novel...I mean, c'mon!! 2: Though I know you were trying to be funny, why of all the critters did you have the sock-people portrayed as...Roaches!? I mean, seriously!! Those are just gross. And they carry the Cholera! 3: I felt the ending of this book was too sudden and abrupt. It just left the reader (I.E. me) hanging there and wondering to himself: Wait, is this it? Kinda reminds me of the ending of The Birds II: Land's End. Guesh I'm gonna have to read Book 3 to find out what comes next, eh? Epilogue: You won't tell us your real name. In fact, you flat out REFUSE to tell us your real name. Nay, you downright threaten to KILL us if we keep on pressing the question!? What is wrong with you, Pseudonymous Bosch!? If you don't quit sticking dumb, disgusting things in your works (You know what I mean), I'll send my Sky Fighters to kill you, instead!!... ...Ha!! Just kidding!...Or am I? o_o Any thoughts on this, Mr. Bosch?

    Cas and Max-Ernest are still fighting the evil Midnight Sun forces while now trying to get themselves initiated into the Terces Society. And track down a homunculus. A fun-enough sequel to the first book. I think I would have thought the series immensely clever as a kid (as does Charlie, who insisted I read them).

    The theme of the book I think is that if you have a secret that might hurt someone keep it safe

    This book series is crazy but in a good and entertaining way. I also relate way too much to the narrator in the story and I'm officially invested in their life as well as the actual story.

    My goodness this book is just as hilarious and amazing as the first book. I really love how random and interesting Pseudonymous Bosch makes this story. How the chapter numbers go backwards? Genius. I gotta make my friends read this. I just cannot with the pop quiz chapter. I remember when I read that chapter I randomly started crying. I believe they were happy tears from how funny it was but it's hard to tell. My goodness this book is just as hilarious and amazing as the first book.

I think I tried to check this book out from the library, but it wasn't available so it was forgotten. This book does a great job of catching the reader up on previous events with little footnotes and summaries for those like me who couldn't remember the first book. I actually got into this book fairly quickly and I immensely enjoyed it. This is such an odd series and I love it for that! Some elements in the book feel so random, but everything is still so thought out! I really love how the book is narrated and how Bosch engages the reader, the book written as if talking to the reader, and all the measures Bosch goes through to keep the secret hidden! Overall, even though it has been a while, I was still able to enjoy this book and my feelings towards the series remain positive. I also made sure to check the next book out of the library immediately so the same mistake wouldn't happen again.

    I thought this book was very good. I have read some other Pseudonymous Bosch books. this one was very good though. I recall once reading one of his book about chocolate so i might have to reread that one. I liked this book so much because i found it kind of humuerouse and mysterious!

    Okay, Pseudonymous Bosch, you may still be a mysterious and hot young male author ( if you don't believe me) and I may still not know your identity (maybe I need to get some of my friends who are truly skilled with Google to help me dig it up), but you dropped the ball a little bit with this book.

    If you’re reading this it’s too late I think this book is funny and mysterious. I think it’s funny because there’s a lot of funny jokes in the book . max ernest always tries to do funny jokes . I think it’s mysterious because first of all the book is a mystery. It has me thinking what’s going to happen next. It has really good vocabulary that would make you have to read it over again. I would recommend this book to ages 10 and older for they can think about it.

    Fantastic! Though I THINK I like the first more. I'm totally amazed by the homunculus! His noble makes the end with a little sad element. I don't really like the last chapter. I think what makes me like less about this one is because Bosch gives too much descriptions at the beginning, the first few chapters were not that interesting to me. My grammar is bad. Oh well. However, I'm going to check out the third book today, I can't wait! Fantastic! Though I THINK I like the first more. I'm totally amazed by the homunculus!

This book is about the endeavour of a teenage child immensely skilled in the art of surviving any type of deadly circumstance, a Japanese boy with a collection of brightly coloured articles of clothing, and a talkative boy who is allergic to chocolate (or so he thinks). The three have one thing in common: they are members of the Terces society and their mission is do discover the long lost secret that has the potential to do unlimited damage to the world as our protagonists know it. However, this secret also has the potential to help the world in numerous ways. With a new lead, the three agents are tugged into a perilous adventure. I enjoyed this book because the writer effectively draws suspense and tension in his words. This made the book more interesting to the reader and made me wonder what was going to happen next. The writer also switches between different perspectives throughout the story, giving the reader a omniscient view of the story.

    Such a fun series! Humorously written, but with genuinely endearing characters and a great story line. Really enjoying these books. Think Roald Dahl, Lemony Snicket, and the Mysterious Benedict Society. Great for adults, young people, and children. Not a difficult read, but certainly worthwhile reading.
