    Story

    I enjoyed Gideon The Cutpurse. Gideon is a great character, though he turns out not to be the main character. I wonder if the author intended that when she started the book. After listening to the second volume, it felt like the author changed the focus away from Gideon to make this book the first of a series. Kate and Peter, two tweens from the present day, become the focal characters in both the present day and in the 18th century. By the end of the book, I wasn't sure why the title included Gideon. Gideon falls by the wayside; he is barely in the second book, even though the series is called the Gideon Trilogy. And based on a review I read, the American version of this book had a different title.

    The time travel is well handled and the reader will buy into it. The fading in and out of time periods is an great twist. There are a few scenes of violence or death that could be too strong for very young listeners but this would be a great for family listening. The Tar Man, one of the bad guys, is wonderfully evil, though he might have a soft spot under all that meanness. The period details ground the listener in the story.

    I found it difficult to believe the 18th century characters so easily accepted the concept of time travel. I would have thought at least one of them would have suspected magic or witchcraft. I wanted more questioning. And it didn't help that Kate and Peter ended up being taken in by upper middle class people in the 18th century. Maybe they should have struggled with daily life of the masses in the 1763. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. Spoiler alert: this becomes a greater problem in the second volume when 18th century characters travel to the 21st century.

    I am not sure if I will continue with the third volume of the trilogy. The second was a disappointment and I lost interest in Peter and Kate. I wanted more Gideon.

    Gerard Doyle has become one of my favorite readers. His character voices are distinct and the listener can see his characters.

    The year is 1763. Gideon Seymour, cutpurse and gentleman, hides in dense underbrush from the villainous Tar Man. Suddenly the sky peels away like fabric and from the gaping hole fall two curious-looking children. Peter Schock and Kate Dyer have fallen straight from the 21st century, thanks to an experiment Kate's father was running with an antigravity machine.

    I loved this book. The reader is the best. Her voices are distinctive and embody the characters. My only quibble, and the reason I didn't give it a 5 overall, is that in order for the ending to make sense, the listener must have read Howl's Moving Castle first. And in a way, that was disappointing because I loved the Djin, the genie, and the carpet.

  • The Diamond of Darkhold: The Fourth Book of Ember

    "Satisfying conclusion to the Ember series"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is book 4 of 4 in the "Ember" series which describes a post-apocalyptic earth in hopeful terms. I like that part of the series' approach, though the overall style can be a little pedantic (in my adult opinion) for moral lessons. However, the target audience is juvenile readers so I think the clarity and overt description of moral connections is likely appropriate. All middle and elementary schoolers I have spoken to about this book have really enjoyed it.

    SPOILER ALERT: This book starts out roughly where ThePeople of Sparks (book 2) leaves off, with winter in full swing and people struggling to get along and survive the winter. The two protagonists want to (again) save things by going back to their abandoned City of Ember. Their adventures are interesting and of course hold many moral lessons. The story telling is skillful and writing is also well done. I would say as an adult I am more accustomed to loose ends left for the reader to fill in according to the reader's inclinations which sometimes can be unsatisfying - other times it is an excellent way to get the reader to continue to ponder and discuss the book long after finishing it. Here, the tying up of details will satisfy all juveniles and any adult who gets frustrated by open endings.

  • The Prophet of Yonwood

    "Very imaginative prequel to the City of Ember"

    Story

    This is book 3 of 4 in the "Ember" series which describes a post-apocalyptic earth in hopeful terms. I like that part of the series' approach, though the overall style can be a little pedantic (in my adult opinion) for moral lessons. However, the target audience is juvenile readers so I think the clarity and overt description of moral connections is likely appropriate. All middle and elementary schoolers I have spoken to about this book have really enjoyed it.

    This book predates the City of Ember by it seems at least a hundred years if not more. The reader, if s/he started with the City of Ember, will be hooked on wondering how/when the nuclear war will start. The initiate will also be hooked on this question due to DuPrau's skillfull story telling. Character development and plot continuity are well executed here. I probably enjoyed this book a bit more than The People of Sparks, though the entire series is worth a read.

    Would you listen to The Titan's Curse again? Why?

    Yes. All of our three boys very much enjoy Rick Riordan's books. We have read and re-read them many times. We have the movies. It's wonderful!


    Did Jesse Bernstein do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I appreciate the desire to make different voices, but the voice for Tyson in particular is annoying - makes him sound dumb. And also, all Asian voices use broken English. As a 4th generation Chinese American, I found this to be profoundly insulting.

    Wow I now understand the Bronson Pinchot love! All of his voices in this one are so fantastic! He made me see animation and characters in my head each one with a distinct personality, look and facial expressions he totally brought this great book to life for me! Between Christopher’s fun writing and Bronson’s narration this one will be a go to book when I am feeling down! And if you are listening to the audio make sure you listen all the way to the last second!

    This is the funniest book it is so much fun! This is humorous fairytale retelling at its best. It reexamines the Prince & Princess mythos. Do you really think the prince’s name was Charming? Who names their kid Charming? Do all the prince’s have names not just The Prince and if you are a Prince must you be a hero? If you are a Princess must you always be the lady in distress can you not save yourself? And how come the bards never write songs about the witches? How come all the stories are about the princesses? These questions and many more are what this book is all about!

    I just can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed this book! These princes Liam, Gustav, Fredrick, and Duncan are not quite what you’ve read before and neither are the princesses. I love the giants and the trolls and even the bad witch Zoberah (*sp audio)! These characters are so much fun and I am so excited to hear that there will be a second book. This one made me laugh out loud and smile it is just so much fun!
    If you are looking for a great family vacation/roadtrip book I highly recommend this one!

    If you haven’t it figured out yet I loved this book so just go get it and you will too!

These are the princes who saved Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel, respectively, and yet, thanks to those lousy bards who wrote the tales, you likely know them only as Prince Charming. But all of this is about to change.

But what we CAN say is that this book is hilarious, it’s tense, and it’s packed with all the eye-popping action, crackling one liners and imaginative set pieces you’ve come to expect. There’s a new threat to our plucky heroine, of course. But that’s not all. There’s also the little fact of the Big Bad, the uber-baddy who’s going to come along and really, really destroy the world.

    Filth is Witch Sludgegooey’s Fiend; Arthur the Dragon is precise, meticulous, and lives with his mum; and O’Brian is a Leprechaun who is often mistaken for a Pixie. These three very different characters have two things in common - the band they play in (The Witchway Rhythm Boys) and the music they play - Crash ‘n’ Bang - which nobody likes very much. But then The Thing in the Moonmad T-shirt becomes their manager and sets their sights higher - on the forthcoming music competition The Battle of the Bands.

    Ronald the Magnificent is the youngest wizard in the Wizards’ Club. The trouble is, he is not a very good wizard and all the others tease him terribly. They don’t even let him have his own chair. What Ronald needs is a pet so at least somebody is on his side. But pets are not allowed, so Ronald has to magic his pet up in secret. And when he does get his pet, it is not as easily controlled as Ronald would have liked. A very funny new book featuring wizards, fire-breathing, some misplaced magic and a lot of sausages!
