I, SAMUEL W. WESTING, resident of Westing County in the fair state of Wisconsin in the great and glorious United States of America, being of sound mind and memory, do hereby declare this to be my last will and testament. FIRST, I returned to live among my friends and my enemies. I came home to seek my heir, aware that in doing so I faced death.

Turn, dear, said Flora Baumbach, the dressmaker, who lived and worked in a smaller apartment on the second floor. Startled by the small cry, Flora Baumbach dropped the pin from her pudgy fingers and almost swallowed the three in her mouth. Please be careful, Mrs. Baumbach; my Angela has very delicate skin. Grace Windsor Wexler was supervising the fitting of her daughter’s wedding dress from the beige velvet couch

Or re-reading the book, because you’re nine years old, and realizing that Raskin gave you all the information you needed to solve the mystery before the characters do and you still couldn’t do it. The house is literally MADE OUT OF MONEY. If you have never read The Westing Game, be aware that it is one of the most brilliantly plotted mysteries I’ve ever read. The plotting still amazed me when I re-read the book this week, and I’ve read it so many times I have Westing’s clues memorized. Sometimes I say Good gracious from hood space when I don’t want to use an obscenity.

Fantastic book. I don't have enough to say about it. So i'll just leave it at this: I first read it when I was in fourth grade, and I read it at least once a year. I'm 24 right now.

This book had an unfair advantage over all others I've read this year, it had my undivided, uncompromised, candle lit attention. It really picked up well and the plethora of characters grew on me. It is loaded with twists and turns that kept me interested and turning pages.

My favorite line was an introspection by a 17 year old. Funny enough it still applies to most social interactions

"He couldn't think of a single thing to say that wasn't stupid or childish or childishly stupid."

This book was assigned to my son as reading material for 8th grade, logically I got a copy to discuss with him.

Four stars. This is good material to spark and inspire young minds. No brainer for a Newbery Medal.

A childhood favorite of mine that I had to share with my own children. I recall being confused the first time I read it, but I genuinely enjoyed it. If you like a suspenseful book that you can go back to each time you read it and find something new this is the book for you. Even as an adult I’ve enjoyed reading it again, aloud with my youngest.

The Westing Game is a classic to me - I love the mysterious nature of the game, and the careful development of the rich and expansive cast of characters. It's obvious that Ellen Raskin was a lover of language and a player with words. What a pleasure to experience her cleverness! The plot is great, but the characters, and their personal development take center stage in a satisfying tale. Must read!

Modern classic is very accurate, I recently read this as an adult after many years since my first read-through as a teen. The book is actually better than I remembered and I greatly enjoyed it. I really can't describe it here without spoilers, so just go ahead and read it, you won't be disappointed.

What do sixteen people, an abandoned house, an apartment complex, and a mystery have to do with millions of dollars? You will have to read this book to find out. In fact, the story's a blast!
I have to say that if I could give this twenty stars, I would! If mystery is your thing, then this is the book for you. I followed this storyline so eagerly I had completed the book in one day. Sort of a shame I didn’t slow down and enjoy it more! The ending is fantastic and the entire book keeps you guessing. Only a genius could figure out how it would end; you never even know if it was actually a “whodunnit” until the very end! So mysterious and well written. The cover is so cute and nice looking. It arrived on time, in good shape, and as pictured. Great buy!
