    Story

    If you can get your kids to read these books then you are doing them a favor. These books are just plain fun but they also have many hidden treasures. The books have legends and history and ancient tales for them to read and maybe even remember. These are lessons that may creep up in school. These books have some fun mixed with knowledge. I cannot think of a better thing for a kid than to read for fun and accidentally learn something. The 30 Clues series is the same. Many historical and geographic facts mixed with a fun story.

    Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister, Sadie, have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven’t given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet—the chaos snake Apophis—is rising.

    Overall

    I cannot say more about Riordan than I will read anything he writes and my kids will also. If he wrote a post-it note list, I might just read that too.

    This is a very cute story and has some great ideas and twists. I just wish he had written the next few books in the series.

    What would happen if you discovered that your family was one of the most powerful in human history? What if you were told that the source of the family's power was hidden around the world, in the form of 39 Clues? What if you were given a choice - take a million dollars and walk away...or get the first Clue? If you're Amy and Dan Cahill, you take the Clue - and begin a very dangerous race.

    Story

    I have enjoyed every Rick Riordan book I have read. He has become a masterful writer. I greatly enjoy books that have plot, theme, and just enough reality for my imagination to impose the possibilities of reality. Rick incorporates real places with real written history to make fantastic representations of present possibilities. He is very good. I am also an adult, a parent, and a doctor. I read every day as well as my daughter and we both love his books.

Angie's greatest hits:
  • Stoneheart: The Stoneheart Trilogy, Book One

    "L.O.V.E. the story + Jim Dale"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Jim Dale has got to be the best narrator in the history of narrators. He is so magnificent I could literally listen to him read a phone book (do they even make those anymore?) and find it riveting. When you add in the fact that he is, in fact reading a rather exciting and charming story that is unique and engaging, it makes for such a brilliant combination and a book I wanted to keep listening to. The story was well written and I loved the characters. I also quite love stories where somewhat outcast children/teenagers are the heroes/heroines. The fact that the other good guys and bad guys were statues was very creative. I also love stories that creates parallel supernatural dimensions, if you will, to real life. This story was about another London inhabited by spits and taints, Statutes on buildings, gargoyles and other carvings that come to life and can only be seen by a select few. Like Simon R Greens the Nightside or Neil Gaimen's Neverwhere with its London Below, this book tells the story of yet another London. I cannot wait to listen to the next book.

  • Peter and the Starcatchers: The Starcatchers, Book 1

    "Best series since Harry Potter"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Jim Dale could read a phone book and make it interesting, however when he reads an amazing book with unique and complex characters with a fantastic story the result is nothing less than mesmerizing. Just as he breathed life into the wondrous characters of Harry Potter, so does he give life and depth to the classic characters from the magical children's story of Peter Pan. This is a rewrite of that classic tale with particular care and attention to the emotional and psychological intricacies of the characters and a brilliantly detailed backstory of all the classic Peter Pan adventures.

    I cannot recommend this series enough. You will never look at Peter Pan the same again.

  • The Emerald Atlas: Books of Beginning

    "Excellent story and Excellent Narrator"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Another fantastic story of hero kids overcoming great odds and discovering that they are extraordinary, after a life of being an outcast. Love stories like this. Another creative and innovative story that kept me listening.

    And the narrator is Jim Dale, what more needs to be said. Brilliant beyond what words can describe. he makes each and every character unique and alive. I can't wait to listen to the next book.

    This wonderful tale of these two little girls is a must read. It is horrific to think that these kinds of events could/did really happen. But in the true sense of Dickens, we should not let it happen anymore. I love dolls and this helps explain why. Dolls heal us all.
