I have thoroughly enjoyed the complete series. Each book has it's own uniqueness and yet flows nicely together as a whole. This conclusion to the series ties everything up nicely. But as most books do, there is room for future books to be written.
I don't want to give anything away, but the narrator's performance at the end made me well up with tears. I've never had that happen to me before with an audiobook. And there are certain scenes that would have been confusing had the narrator not taken great care in making the quick point of view switches so smooth and clear.
All in all, kudos to the author for a great series and kudos to the narrator for bringing it all to life!
I bought this audiobook because my friend recommended it. She said she really enjoyed listening to it with her kids. It's something that even adults can enjoy. And she was right.
The main character, Noah, is very cool, sarcastic, typical teenager. But he also has a streak of bravery in him as well. The book is written in first person so you get to hear his thoughts and feelings about everything.
Time travel is a main part of the story and the author uses it very well. He created his own rules and sticks to them nicely.
The bad guy is bad - what did you expect? ;)
And the ending... well, for a "kids book"... it surprised even me!
It's fun how the author plays around with time travel and yet still stays within the "time travel rules" he created in the first book.
I love how there is a lot of international travel, too. Different countries and different people all with unique accents that the narrator does a great job of performing.
The way the story flows keeps you guessing who the real bad guy is right up to the very end. No early clues that leave a story flat. Plenty of back and forth and twists and turns to keep you on your toes.
An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
For some reason I thought this was the second book, but it obviously wasn't as Ozma was already introduced and other characters that show up in this book.
The story starts out in San Francisco just in time for an earthquake to take Dorothy and Zeb, ( a cousin) along with Eureka, her cat and Jim an old workhorse into a hole in the ground that leads them into various adventures.
There are vegetable people, baby dragons, invisible people and finally an escape to OZ and Ozma the queen of the land who helps them get home.
It is filled with many adventures and is a good story in the series. I read all of these when I was younger and this is fun to read them again. Claire Bronson is good as the narrator, in fact I enjoyed her better than Anne Hathaway's narration of the first book.
Well worth your time and money if you have children or grandchildren that would enjoy these tales.
