Title: The Westing Game
Author: Ellen Raskin
Rating: 5 stars
A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing’s will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger—and a possible murderer—to inherit his vast fortune, one things for sure: Sam Westing may be dead…but that won’t stop him from playing one last game!
This young adult mystery novel was one of the most fun experiences I’ve read reading.
This is a whodunnit with a twist, a puzzle within a puzzle.
The Westing Game was such a fun fast read I finished it in one day. With only 204 pages, it is the perfect companion for a lazy cold weekend.
One of the most wonderful things is that it’s such a feel good book! I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a feel good whodunnit mystery before.
Now run! Go read it! It’ll be fast, fun and it’ll put a smile on your face.
