At the end, Neil and Larry find out that this was all set by Hiro, who wanted to rule Tokyo, by using the treasure. After finishing this book, I thought to myself, this was quite intense. There was always times, where I was just like 'gosh this boring' but when I kept reading on, something new would happening unexpectedly, and it would kind of make you start guessing.
This might be crazy, but it seemed like the author knew when I was getting bored. For me, if I start on a book series, and I find it pretty interesting, I am determined to finish all the books, no matter what. Also because, I really like how the author draws these little pictures, so you could actually imagine the scene that is happening.
It just seems cool. I would recommend this book for someone who is really looking for a good adventure book! This book is enjoyable, and mysterious. View 1 comment. Dec 20, David rated it really liked it Shelves: youngadult , books. I enjoyed this volume more than the third entry to the series.
I might even suspect that Neil is maturing as a person and becoming a better chef. Recommended for fans of the series. Oct 05, Iman Fatima rated it it was amazing. An awesome read! Nov 26, Ashley rated it it was amazing. This is the fourth book in the Neil flambe series and I think it's my second favorite aside from the second book in the series because it was in Mexico but this time it takes place in Tokyo and it was really cool how the author set up the book.
What made me really like the book was that there was a hidden message at the close end of the book its what Hiro said to Larry about something that made me think that this is a good message to be hidden so people can see and understand it.

I will be talking about the plot, the characters and what I thought about it. The plot: So it takes place after there trip to Paris with the whole curse that was on his family and Larry gets a letter from his Manga partner saying that a company wants to turn there online manga into a book manga and he has to come to Tokyo so they could discuss it more.
So Larry leaves and after a week or so they get a letter saying that Hiro and Larry are dead and that where the adventure begins.
The characters: Well there the same characters except you don't see much of Angel in this book because he's helping Gary out in the restaurant. But there is the same characters and I love Isabella and Larry but there wasn't much of Larry for the first half of the book cause they were trying to find him but then after he was back to making puns and making everyone laugh.
Neil flambe book 6
What I thought: This is my second favorites Neil flambe book because I learned a little history about Tokyo and Japan and it was awesome and I like how described it was and and vivid the places were that I imagined it and it would be wonderful to visit there someday. So there going to be a 5th book but that's not coming out till next year which I'm excited for but I have to wait a year and there was a semi cliff hanger at the end. Dec 22, Sornnujah rated it it was amazing Shelves: adventure , fiction , mystery , humour , jan After a few days, he gets the message that Larry died in sea with Hiro, which shattered Neil and all his friends emotionally.
One day while he was sitting on his office floor, looking at the last installment of 'The Chef', he noticed one thing that only a great chef would realize, the 'Chef' was holding a pomegranate, and Neil remembered that he had an argument with Larry to change the avacodo bomb to a pomegranate. Neil had a feeling Larry was alive, so he headed off to Japan to look for him, but he needed a good excuse and the money, so he called up one of his enemies, Matsumoro Nori, a extremely rich man who has always wanted his best chefs to beat Neil.
Once in Japan, Neil faces many obstacles along the way, such as knowing that Nori always added death to his cooking duels, meeting Koko Hiro's sister who he suspected was up to something, and finding Larry, who tells them that there is actually a bigger treasure at stake. In the end, they find out this was all set by Hiro, who wanted to rule Japan, using the treasure, documents proving his ancestors were royalty, but Hiro was arrested in the end.

The reason a picked this book was because this was the latest book in the Neil Flambe series, and the author hinted the reader about this story in the last book in the series, and it seemed quite interesting. The reson I finished this book was the author made the book so intriguing, and it was very easy to connect with the characters.
When I put the book down, I would wonder what would happen to Neil, and I would predict who the criminal was. This book was also quite humourous. I would recommened this book to somone who is looking for an adventure or might want to be introduced to the genre of adventure. It's easy to get engaged with the story, so even if you don't usually read this genre.
Larry is dead, died with Hiro, gone forever. Neil can a clue that Larry was alive, a clue that no one else would notice, he has to get to Japan to help solve the mystery of his missing brother.
Nori, the richest man in Japan will have a duel with Neil, whomever won 3 duels gets a reward, if Neil won he would get a lot of money to pay for the restaurant bills and the trip to Japan, if Nori's chef won Neil would have to cook food for Nori until the end of his life. Little by little the pieces fit Larry is dead, died with Hiro, gone forever.
Little by little the pieces fit together and they 'saved' Hiro and Larry and won the duels between Niel and Nori's chef. Why did I pick up this book: I like to finish the series of books that I already started to read, so when I heard that Kevin Sylvester was coming to our school in grade 5, I bought one of his books so he can sign it.
From there I started to read the next of the series, and the next, until I got up to this book. I had to read the next and the one after that, sometimes it was confusing because I had to read the books out of order, but when I knew I finished the series, it felt like I had achieved my goal. So from there my 'series reading' sprouted. Who would I recommend this book to: I would recommend this book to anyone that liked to read books about cooking, mystery and learn about Japan.
All of the books in the series are about Neil solving mysteries by cooking and traveling around the world. Mar 21, Mia Sabbara rated it really liked it. The genre of the book is fiction and adventure because the events that took place in the book were mainly at dangerously poisoned food battles that were unbelievable to even spend time thinking about.
