  • "A fun read, entertaining and for al..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Although the intended audience for this book is for the YA market I found it a fun read, entertaining and interesting enough to hold my attention from start to finish and I'm in my early 60's

    Oona is an incredibly likeable and well rounded character, as is Deacon her enchanted raven sidekick, some of the other characters are less rounded however and whilst it does not spoil the overall story it would help flesh out this fantasy world if some of the other characters had a bit more depth behind them. That is not to say that it is in anyway hard to find your self becoming immersed in the fantasy world of Dark Street as it stands.

    I am normally wary of books narrated by the author but I found his narration to be well suited to the story and will definitely listen to more of this series.

    The only qualm I had with the story was that 12 year old children were expected to sign contracts that in this universe were legally binding and that Oona seems much older than her 12 years . . . but these did not detract from my enjoyment of this book.

    Frankly i did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did . . .

    I would recommend this to the young and young at heart that love fantasy and or mystery

    Enjoy

    Story

    I enjoyed the first book in this series Theodore Boone: The Kid Lawyer so decided to listen to this one also. Glad I did. Richard Thomas does a good job narrating the story. This story is advertised for children but adults will enjoy it also. It is a short story that leaves one feeling good. It is nice to see a 13 year old with such a focus on what he wants to do with his life. Enjoyed the scenes in animal court in both books. This one particularly was funny. You will enjoy this book for a 4 hour trip with the family.

    Elephant gods, a map, villains, and secrets are just a scratch in the adventure Zoe and Zak find themselves discovering in India.

    Zoe and Zak are young, but not short on courage and spunk. This story is a wonderful middle grade adventure that will trap you in their world, and take you on an amazing journey.

    Zoe Guire just talked to an elephant. Well, technically speaking, the elephant spoke to her, but either way it was weird and, as a rule, Zoe doesn't do weird. Except the thing is, when Zoe goes along on her mom's business trip to India, things get very weird, very quickly. Soon after she arrives, Zoe finds herself tagging alongside a kid named Zak, lost in a crazy city, with no money and no way home.
