    William Olsen, or William Wenton, his real name, was on the run with his parents, now living in Norway. The family has been on the run ever since his grandfather went missing at Victoria Station, in London. William didn’t really know why, or who they were running from, all he knew was that he wasn’t to bring attention to himself, or his parents.When ‘The Impossible Puzzle’ came to Norway’s History of Science Museum, William was overly excited. He loved puzzles, and was rather quite good at them. He dreamed of being a cryptographer.On a school trip to see the puzzle, William forgot all about staying off the radar, and decided to try to crack the puzzle, especially seen as no-one else had managed to do it. Fortunately, or unfortunately, William did it, he’d cracked it, meaning that the world’s media were now talking about him.In the middle of the night, William was woken by his parents telling him to run, but he didn’t get far before he was caught, and taken to a secret institution for post-human research. But what do they want with William, and why?William Wenton and the Luridium Thief, is an exciting young adult adventure book. It has a great cast of characters, especially William, with his determination, and wit.The story is full of mysterious moments, suspension, and many twists and turns. This technological advanced book will have you delving into a futuristic world, being created in the present.I can see this being a big hit with older children/young adults, looking for a book that will perk their interest and give them the setting to send their imagination into overdrive.The plot is strong and the tension builds steadily throughout. This is a book that will hold your attention right until the very last page.Reviewed by Stacey on www.whisperingstories.com

    This was really fun and imaginitive, but really weak in world building and plot. Very tropey and predictable, but hey, it's a book written for kids. Kids will love this book! But if you compare this to Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, it'll get the highroad, needs a pinch of everything to make it extra saucey. Hehe, but yeah, a quick, okay read.

    About: William Wenton and the Impossible Puzzle is a middle grade action & adventure book written by Bobbie Peers. It is published today 5/23/17 by Aladdin, imprint of Simon & Schuster, 272 pages. The genres are middle grade, fantasy, science fiction, and action & adventure. This book is the author’s debut middle grade novel. My Experience: I started reading William Wenton and the Impossible Puzzle on 5/21/17 and finished it on 5/23/17. This book is an awesome read! It’s filled with lots of actions and adventures. I love smart characters and the plot surrounding code breaking. I love the different robots, especially argubot and the school that only admit geniuses. There is no dull moment reading this book.In this book, readers will follow the point of view of William Wenton, a twelve years old genius who likes to solve puzzles. His grandfather is the best cryptologist (code breaker) in the world and he’s either in hiding or missing. This book started out with William and his family living in Norway, diverting themselves from attracting attention. They have been living under the radar for 8 years until the impossible puzzle world tour came to their local museum and allowing geniuses to try their luck on solving the puzzle. William couldn’t keep himself away and got his hands on the puzzle during a school field trip. He solved it. As soon as his family decided that they will have to go into hiding again then they were under attacked. William find himself running away to escape whatever/whoever that came after him. He found himself being rescued and brought to a school for the geniuses called Institute for Post-Human Research. From there, William learns the mystery surrounding his grandfather and the bad guys that are coming for him.I enjoyed reading this book greatly! I like following William’s train of thoughts. I like how smart he is and am fascinated by him for his love of learning from books his grandfather left behind. I like the many robots around the school including the talking door and the ladder. I like that behind each door, there’s a puzzle to solve before reaching a destination. I like the mystery and suspense in this book. I enjoy the humor from the robots. This book starts interesting and ends interesting. I highly recommend everyone the read it!Pro: actions & adventures, robots, puzzles, code breakers, page turner, fast paced, mystery, adrenaline rush, humor, no dull moment,Con: noneI rate it 5 stars!***Disclaimer: Many thanks to the author Bobbie Peers, publisher Simon & Schuster, and Edelweiss for the opportunity to read and review. Please assured that my opinions are honest.xoxo, Jasmine at www.howusefulitis.wordpress.com for a detailed review

    Det här var helt fantastiskt! Jag köpte boken till min systers barn och tänkte att jag måste väl läsa den först. Jag tyckte framsidan såg spännande ut när boken kom på norska förra året. Det här är en thriller för nio till tolv-åringar och fungerar bra också för vuxen. Medryckande skrivet och underhållande.William Wenton - numera Olsen - måste hålla sig gömd i Norge. Varför är oklart, men det har något med hans morfars försvinnande att göra för många år sen. William vet att han måste ligga lågt, men klarar ändå att bli den som löser världens svåraste pussel-kod, "omöjligheten". Vips så är något ute efter att ta honom. Något stort, som slår in väggar. William räddas till det institut som hans morfar grundade. Där får han undervisning samtidigt som han försöker att få reda på vad som egentligen hände med hans morfar och varför det är någon som jagar honom. Institutet med alla dess robotar, ondskapsfulla mekaniska växter och mystiska personal är oroväckande i sig själva.Boken är olidligt spännande till tider. Jag har inte läst något så kreativt och välskrivet i den här kategorin bok på år och dagar. Jag ser verkligen framemot nästa i serien!

    Na knihách je nejlepší, že když chci být zas chvilku malej kluk, nepotřebuju si pořídit dítě (a autodráhu a mašinky).Prostě jenom nakrmím čtečku.Zloděj luridia je příběh který jsem sfoukl za jeden večer - a který bych jako malej kluk žral úplně stejně jako Harryho Pottera. Parádní práce.

    William Wenton strastveni je razbijač kodova. Kodovi ga fasciniraju i privlače i nema tog koda niti zagonetke koju do sada nije uspješno riješio. Naravno da ga onda, kada u muzej u njegovom gradu doputuje izložba na kojoj je prezentacija 'Nemogućega' - koda koji još nitko nije uspio riješiti, unatoč tome što su najgenijalniji svjetski umovi to pokušali - ta prezentacija strašno privlači. Kad se potom, tijekom školskog izleta u muzej, William nađe pred 'Nemogućim' - i riješi ga, nije ni svjestan da tu njegovi problemi tek počinju. Jer, William i njegova obitelj koriste se lažnim prezimenom ne bi li ostali skriveni pred nepoznatom prijetnjom na koju ih je upozorio Williamov djed, prije nego što je netragom nestao. A riješivši 'Nemoguće', William kao da je uključio reflektor i uperio ga ravno na sebe, pokazujući time svakome tko ga traži točno gdje se nalazi. Na prve posjetitelje neće morati dugo čekati, a jedini mu je spas u tajanstvenom Institutu, organizaciji koja okuplja najbolje kriptografe i koju je njegov djed pomogao osnovati. Da li je Institut zapravo prijetnja ili utočište, William tek treba otkriti, a usput treba i doznati što se dogodilo njegovom djedu, kamo je nestao i zašto je sa sobom odnio moćni element luridij...Zanimljiva fantastična pustolovna priča vodi nas u svijet šifri, kodova i robota. Taj svijet možda na prvi pogled djeluje bezazleno, ali u njemu se skrivaju i brojne opasnosti i neki prilično zli negativci. Priča je nabijena napetošću, radnja se odvija brzo i dok trepneš već si stigao do kraja knjige.Priča je originalna i maštovita. Ponekad predvidiva, ali i s nekoliko dobrih obrata. Jedno mi je kraj bio malo, kako bih to rekla, prelagan - rasplete se ekstremno brzo i sve se riješi tek tako, u trenu. Ne kažem da je to nekakav minus, samo sam očekivala nešto možda malo kompliciranije, zahtjevnije, malo značajniju kulminaciju događaja.Likovi su simpatični, raznoliki i maštovito opisani, baš kao i njihovo okruženje, koje je ispunjeno svakojakim čudnovatim napravama i mehaničkim bićima, koja čine čitav taj svijet samo još fascinantnijim.Ova knjiga namijenjena je mlađim čitateljima, ali lako ju mogu čitati i oni stariji. Kratka je i brzo se čita, može je se progutati u jednom popodnevu. Simpa priča, koja čini sasvim ugodno društvo za ispuniti par popodnevnih sati.

    Zloděj luridia je debut norského režiséra a scénáristy Bobbieho Peerse. Fantasy příběh plný šifer, robotů a tajemství. Pro malé čtenáře kolem 10 let to bude objev srovnatelný s Harrym Potterem a Kamenem mudrců. Ostatně i Will nastoupí do prazvláštní školy, jen místo magie jsou všude kolem roboti a hůlku studenti vyměnili za zašifrovaný orb (a Hermiona se tady jmenuje Iscia :-D). S Williamem si povídají dveře do jeho pokoje, vysavač, na chodbě otravuje dohadobot, ve skleníku mají žravý mechanický kaktus, schůdky v knihovně bojují o to, kdo sveze dalšího návštěvníka.

    Bobbie Peers geboren in 1974 in Noorwegen is afgestudeerd op de London International Film School als regisseur en film schrijver. Hij won in 2006 een Palme d'Or voor Sniffer, geschreven en geregisseerd door hemzelf. In 2015 schreef hij het debuut William Wenton en de luridiumdief. Dit is het eerste boek in een serie over code brekende wizzkid William. Als William de moeilijkste code ter wereld kraakt, wordt hij uitgenodigd door een geheimzinnig instituut dat kinderen opleidt tot codekrakers. Maar is hij daar wel veilig? Lezen vanaf ca 10 jaar. Er zit ook een sticker op van de Nederlandse Kinderjury 2017.De omslag is mysterieus en donker waardoor het onheilspellend wordt. Mijn man heeft het boek eerst gelezen en vond het goed en daarna heb ik het gelezen. Ach ik was toch in wat anders bezig. Het zijn korte hoofdstukken waardoor het makkelijk weg leest. Het heeft een aantal verrassende wendingen, die ik niet zag aankomen. Je moet natuurlijk niet heel veel verwachten als volwassene, want het is toch een b boek, maar het is een prima verhaal! Ik ben benieuwd naar een volgend deel. Dit boek zal ik zeker aan mijn kinderen geven om te lezen, omdat het een spannend en makkelijk boek is om te lezen!

    Mazie klausītāji liek 4 zvaigznes, es lieku 1.Šī ir viena no vissliktākjām bērnu grāmatām, kādu nācies lasīt. Nav nekā sliktāka, kā nopietnā tonī rakstītas muļķības. Pieļauju, ka autora ideja ir bijusi paņemt Poteru un uzrakstī sci-fi versiju, bet sanācis ir pilnīgs nekas. Ja šī grāmata tiešām ir atzīta par Norvēģijas 2016. gada labāko bērnu grāmatu, tad tas laikam ir bijis baigi sauss gadu bērnu literatūrā.

    En bok med et veldig godt premiss og utgangspunkt. Dessverre syns jeg kvaliteten led under det jeg anser som ensformig og kjedelig skriving. De aller fleste setningene bare skrev en handling etter en annen, og det var lite variasjon i rytmen. Dette gjorde at å lese boken opplevdes veldig monotont, noe som stakk seg ut og dro meg ut av historien igjen og igjen. Den monotone skrivingen fikk meg til å tenke på et av favorittsitatene mine, av Gary Provost: “This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”Luridiumstyven mangler denne poesien i setningsrytme som Provost her snakker om, og etter side opp og side ned med setninger som er helt likt konstruert blir det irriterende. Et eksempel tatt fra en tilfeldig oppslått side i boken:"William gikk opp trappen til andre etasje. Han fortsatte bortover gangen og stoppet da han kom til enden. Han strøk hånda over furupanelet på veggen. Pekefingeren hans stoppet ved et stort kvisthull i panelet. Han lirket fingeren inn i hullet og trykket på noe. Klikk, sa det inne i veggen. Så knirket det fra taket og en luke åpnet seg."William gjorde dette, så dette, så dette, så dette. Så gjorde den tingen det og det og det. Ingen variasjon, ingen subtilitet, ingen sanselige beskrivelser som gjør at jeg føler jeg er der. I stedet fortelles jeg at William går, og deretter stopper. Hvor er spenningen i det?Det fortelles også svært mye: I stedet for å la en handling eller følelsesmessig reaksjon stå for seg selv og la leseren tolke denne selv, blir den straks forklart og understreket. Dette var i de fleste tilfeller helt unødvendig. Mot slutten av boka er det også en del synsvinkeltull, der det beskrives hva Iscia føler: På et punkt smiler hun "så tappert hun kunne", men dette er en beskrivelse av hva Iscia selv opplever å kunne gjøre i det øyeblikket, ikke at William ser hun ikke greier smile mer tappert enn hva hun gjør. Dette er slapp skriving, siden hele boken er tydelig ment å være begrenset tredjeperson fra Williams synsvinkel.En spennende idé som er sørgelig dårlig utført. Kommer dessverre ikke til å lese resten av serien.

    Vahelduseks sai loetud üks tore lasteraamat. Bobbie Peersi debüütromaan "Lüriidiumivaras" rabab oma fantaasiaga, kus inimeste kõrval tegutsevad üliintelligentsed robotid ja muud vahvad tehnikavidinad.Norra, Inglismaa. William Wentoni jaoks muutus kõik, kui ta vanaisa kadus. Perekond võttis endale varjunimed ning kolis Norrasse. Poisil on karm keeld endale tähelepanu tõmmata, varjates oma annet koodide lahendamise suhtes, kuid ta ei suuda vastu panna, kui kohalikku muuseumi saabub rändnäitus maailma keerulisima koodiga ehk Võimatusega. Williamil õnnestub seda näha ja puudutada ning enne kui ta arugi saab, on poiss selle lahendanud. Saadud tähelepanu tõmbab kohale kõik, mille eest perekond põges ning William saab enda kohta nii mõndagi teada. Ühtlasi saab ta endale koha koolis, kus kõik õpilased on osavad koodimurdjad.Lugu on hoogne ja fantaasiaküllane. Peatükid on lühikesed, pingelised ja põnevad ning kui loed stiilis loen-ainult-ühe-peatüki-veel, siis märkad ühel hetkel, et ups ongi kõik. Minu arvates sai raamat suisa liiga kiirelt läbi. Oleksin eelistanud pikemaid kirjeldusi ja veidi aeglasemat loo kulgu, et paremini sisse elada. Raamatus kujutatud tehnika ja koodid olid põnevad ning oleks neist hea meelega rohkem tahtnud teada. Siinkohal tuleb kindlasti appi teine osa, mida varsti loodetavasti ka eesti keeles lugeda saab.Ma ei ole lugenud eriti palju raamatuid, kus figureeriksid robotid. Küll aga olen lugenud raamatut, kus 11-aastase poisi maailmapilt pahupidi pööratakse ja ta internaatkooli saadetakse. See on muidugi Harry Potter. Kui neid kahte võrrelda, siis minu arvates olid Rowlingu raamatud südamlikumad. Peersi loos jäi see miski puudu, mis ta mulle südamelähedaseks teeks. Bobbie Peers on pärit Norrast ning sai tuntuks 2006. aastal, kui võitis auhinna filmiga "Sniffer" mille stsenarist ja režissöör ta oli. Üheksa aastat hiljem ilmus juba tema esimene raamat "Lüriidiumivaras", mida norra lapsed hindasin aasta parima lasteraamatu tiitli vääriliseks."Lüriidiumivaras" on hoogne ja kaasahaarav lugemine, kust leiab küllaga fantaasiat. Soovitaksin William Wentoni seiklusi eelkõige keskmisele koolieale. Selle raamatu puhul ei saa küll kurta, et igav oleks, sest tegevus ja põnevus ei rauge hetkekski!Aitäh, Helios kirjastus, raamatu eest!

    This is a really good read! Not my usual chosen style, but I really enjoyed it. It felt like a hybrid of Harry Potter & The Librarians. Bits of it were too 'copied' to give it 5* (flying metal orbs a la Quidditch, for example) but it was well written, with great characters and a gripping storyline. Definitely going on my middle school reading shelf, along with the rest of the series!** Free copy received through Goodreads giveaways **

    Wow! This is a surprisingly fun read despite the initial hesitation I had when I began to read this book. William is a boy who loves to crack codes and is very smart but his parents are worried about him. When an exhibition at a local museum shows off The Impossible Puzzle, a puzzle that no-one in the world has yet solved, William is desperate to get a peek at it. But things soon go wrong and William find himself running for his life.The book begins with a scene at Victoria Station in London. The scene is brief but sets up the mystery of this story right away. I initially had doubts on whether I would get into this book. Although I was curious to find out what was happening, the writing in the book didn’t really feel all that great and it didn’t feel as urgent as the story probably should have been. I’m used to a slightly different style of writing in kids books these days and this felt a little less punchy and the first few scenes which were supposed to be exciting just felt oddly predictable. However I kept on reading and found myself progressively sucked more and more into the tale.It wasn’t until the pages about the Institute that I really got hooked. The story is described as a fantasy but given the fact that it focuses a lot on technology I’d say it could be classed as children’s science fiction too. Although the book is listed as a thriller there is some humour thrown in as well. There are robots, a lot of robots, at the institute and it’s here that I really started to enjoy the story. It becomes an exciting adventure and a really unpredictable one. I’m surprised at just how imaginative some of the story is and something that happens in the Archives really surprised me.The whole story has a really good conclusion and I enjoyed the fact I still didn’t know what was going to happen even right to the end. The book is definitely a fun filled adventure thriller with fantasy/science fiction throughout. While the writing could have been a bit better and faster, perhaps a problem of the translation rather than the original story, it was still a good read and I think the target audience of kids won’t be bothered at all by this. Some adults might enjoy reading this too, it really picks up the pace after the first few chapters and is really surprising with lots of twists. This book has a great ending as a stand alone but is apparently only the first of a series and it’ll be interesting to see how popular this series will be in the UK, the original story was written in Norwegian. -Thanks to Walker Books for a free copy.

    William Wenton ist 12 und lebt unter dem Namen Willam Olsen mit seinen Eltern in Norwegen. Warum er unter falschem Namen seit 8 Jahren so weit von England weg leben muss weiß er nicht, auch nicht warum zeitgleich sein Großvater verschwand – er weiß nur, dass er Mathematik über alles liebt – und ihn deswegen sein Mathelehrer über alles hasst. Welcher Lehrer möchte auch ständig verbessert werden?Seine Eltern halten ihn komischerweise von seiner Leidenschaft fern. Nicht mal das Sodoku in der Zeitung darf er lösen. Wie könnte er da hoffen in die Unmöglichkeitsaustellung zu kommen, die in seiner Stadt gastiert? Ein Code der unmöglich zu lösen ist … da kribbelt es William schon bei der Schlagzeile in den Fingern. Er macht das Unmögliche möglich und schmuggelt sich nicht nur in die Ausstellung, sondern knackt tatsächlich den angeblich unlösbaren Code. Damit löst er eine Kette von Ereignissen aus die ihn sich nicht nur entführt im Institut für Posthumane Forschung wieder finden lassen, sondern ihn mit Übermächtigen Gegnern konfrontieren als er sich auf die Suche nach seinem Großvater macht um auch seine eigene wahre Identität heraus zu finden.Ich habe das Buch unheimlich gern gelesen und freue mich schon auf die Meinung meiner Kinder dazu. Ein Buch für Jungs und Mädels ab 8 zugleich, einfach und zugleich spannend und rasant geschrieben. Eine erfrischend neue Welt die mal nichts mit Magie direkt zu tun hat, sondern zeigt, wie magisch die Wissenschaft an sich sein kann. Wie Mathematik und die anderen Naturwissenschaften unter anderem so tolle „Wesen“ wie sprechende Türen und fernsehsüchtige Staubsauger hervor bringen kann!Die Geschichte ist in sich zwar in sich abgeschlossen – gibt aber Hinweise auf eine höchst willkommene Fortsetzung ohne den Leser böse am Cliff hängen zu lassen ;-)Im Herbst erscheint der zweite Teil beim Carlsen Verlag. Im Original ist er schon im Februar unter dem norwegischen Titel William Wenton – Kryptalportalen erschienen.Beim Googeln habe ich auch entdeckt, dass Band 1 tatsächlich dieses Jahr verfilmt werden soll! Als Film kann ich mir den Stoff sehr gut vorstellen und werde mir das auf jeden Fall mit meinen Mädels zusammen anschauen!

    Peers, Bobbie William Wenton and the Impossible Puzzle, 258 pages. Aladdin (Simon), 2017. $17. Content: G (some danger)William had his parents have been living a very quiet life in Norway. But when he hears about a puzzle contest with a seemingly unsolvable puzzle, he can not resist. He’s inherited the puzzle-solving gene from his grandfather. So William sneaks away, solves the puzzle, and then is kidnapped. His kidanppers say that they mean no harm, that they know his grandfather, but how can William trust them? The only person in this crazy place of talking furniture and overconfident kids he can seem to trust is Iscia, and even she seems to have a hidden agenda.The first thing I asked myself upon finishing was – what was the purpose of that? Seriously – why did I read this book? While it had action, there was not enough compelling action to disguise the fact that there was minimal character development or plot. Yes, William finds a pretty gigantic secret, but what is the point of it? If this is meant to setup a series, it didn’t do the job.NO – Cindy, Library Teacherhttps://kissthebook.blogspot.com/2017...
