I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

  • "HAHA! Great narration..."

    Overall

    This book would not have been so enjoyable to listen, if the narrator had been different. Too funny! I am just drawn in and can see Tom and characters in my mind, clear as day. I loved the stumble when it came to winning the bible. David and who?

    There are a few snipettes of the audio that are cut out. Someone wasn't watching what they were doing. But these can be skipped over. It would be nice to see an updated audio prepared. If this were a paper book, then the missing pages would be cause for return to the seller. Because this book is in the public domain, the text is easily found.

    If you want a funny story, the kind that are dismissed because "boys will be boys" then you should really enjoy this audiobook because of this specific narration.

    This is the story of a boy's adventures growing up in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi river over 100 years ago. The cheerful, adventurous hero plays truant to form a pirate band and, together with his best friend, Huckleberry Finn, finds fun, excitement, and buried treasure along the shores of the great river.

  • "Mixed thoughts, enjoyable story"

    Overall

    I had some mixed feelings about the narration. At first it really bothered me. As I listened more, I really was dragged into the story. Since the primary part of the audio is the storyline I tried to focus on what the characters were actually doing. As the story progressed I came to really enjoy the narration. I think the problem with this narration is it follows Lynn Redgrave. It is really hard to change from a woman to a man narrator when the characters stay the same.

    I am looking forward to InkDeath. It should help us wrap up a great story/series.

    Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of Inkheart, the book whose characters became real. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past.

  • "I thought this book was funny"

    Overall

    Amazing how adults can screw up kids lives. Anyway, while I don't believe these characters are 7th graders, I can believe they are teens. And they have certainly been dealt a bad hand in this game. Making the best of things is their way of life and I laughed considerably while they did this. I saw the plot coming long before it happened. If you like this book then you should get the Ariadne Meyers narrated books by
    Sarah Mlynowski. Start with Bras and Broomsticks. Not only will you laugh about being a teen again, but Ariadne Meyers was great.

    I enjoyed Francois Battiste in this book. I'll look for books he has narrated in the future.

    Story

    This is the most entertaining "biography" I have ever red!

    To those in the hush lands: This fiction is soooo funny and good, Brandon Sanderson is a gifted and a great author, and his fantasy books are big and fat. Alcatraz gets used to his powers and to his abilities, and get introduced to new characters, which most of them are really funny.. Just wait until you get introduced to the "List"!!!

    To the 3 Kingdoms:
    This biography of Alcatraz was an eye opener, you get to know so much about your hero and who he really is, and how he dealt with all those evil librarians..

    P.S. You will laugh a lot... so avoid drinks and food while listening to it... :)

    Fantastic 4th addition to this series.... I love the new characters that are added here, and i love how damn annoying Alcatraz could be.... He could be really annoying sometimes, when you start the book, don't worry regarding the chapters' numbers.. I had to go back to make sure i didn't skip a chapter by mistake, don't do that... just go ahead!!!

    Alcatraz is put in a new place with huge responsibilities, which was a great change, and gets to discover some truths regarding his family.... some are really funny!!!

    Get it and enjoy.

  • "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.
