    Story

    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!

    As battles rage across the solar system, Noah must work to join together a rag-tag bunch of miners, farmers, and scientists who would rather just live in peace. With only a time-traveling ship full of animals and a general from the history books, the Zarc family has to stand against the full might of the Poligarchy. Will the truth about what really happened 1,000 years in the past be enough to stop total war? Or will Noah and his friends need to find another way to bring down a dictator?

    Story

    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!

    Story

    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.

  • The Winter Pony

    "Not For Sensitive Audiences"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    May contain slight spoilers

    I probably should have researched this book a bit better before diving in. While I really enjoyed the story itself, and found it quite interesting I was not prepared for the amount of death and killing of ponies involved.

    This is a novel based on a real event, a particularly disastrous one; it is the story of an adventure to the south pole, two teams racing to have the glory of being the first man there. One man took dogs the other dogs and ponies. This was written from the point of view of a pony named James Pigg, first from his birth and all the way to his death and the many things that happened to him, primarily in the Arctic wasteland of the most southerly contenent .

    If you are sensitive about real accounts of animals and people dying or being shot to death, you may wish to consider researching the non-fiction story and then deciding whether this would be a good book for you. While I learened a lot from this book and found the story to be fun, it does not have a happy ending.

  • The Giver

    "High Hopes Left Me Disappointed"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I had really high hopes for this book. I am a big fan of YA Dystopian novels, and I'd heard this book was really one of the important ones in the genre.

    I felt like the beginning of this book was really good, I liked where it was going, it had an interesting setting...but about 3/4 through it felt like the author gave up and just wanted it to end. It left way too many loose ends, and just sort of ended.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the narrator, but he did not bother me.

  • War Horse

    Story

    John Keating as always, did a fabulous job of narration.

    As an avid horse lover I am always looking for another great horse book. This book is written from the point of view of a horse during WWI and tells of the harsh realities faced by both people and the horses. It doesn't go into so much detail that it wouldn't be safe for children however.

  • Artemis Fowl: Artemis Fowl, Book 1

    "Fun and Easy"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book was fun. If you are in need of a light read this is a good choice. It is fairly short (under 6hrs) and does not get bogged down, it just keeps moving.

    The narrator was supreme. His accents, inflections, and choices for voices were spot on perfect. Editing was also done well, no weird background noises or funky spacing.

  • "Even better than the first!"

    10 of 11 helpful votes

    What the author did with time travel was very creative. I'll never look at time travel the same way again. It's not confusing, just very very well done. And how he was able to take a book written in the first person and give you views that weren't from the main character's perspective was very crafty.

    The author laid very nice ground work in book one, but this book is where the series really shines. A great story with great characters.

    Two thumbs up and five stars all around.

    Alton Barnes loves maps. He's loved them ever since he was little, and not just for the geography. Because maps contain more information than just locations, and that's why he likes to draw maps as well as read them. Regular "point A to point B" ones, sure, but also maps that explain a whole lot more - like what he really thinks about his friends. And teachers. Even the principal. So when Alton's maps are stolen from his locker, there's serious trouble on the horizon - and he'll need some mad cartographic skills to escape it.

There’s Sam, age twelve, who’s mostly interested in soccer, food, and his phone; Jax, age ten, who’s psyched for fourth grade and thinks the new neighbor stinks, and not just because of the skunk; Eli, age ten (but younger than Jax), who’s thrilled to be starting this year at the Pinnacle School, where everyone’s the smart kid; and Frog (not his real name), age six, who wants everyone in kindergarten to save a seat for his invisible cheetah.
