Great book, but not a fan of some of the voices used for characters or the music.
I didn't like the background music to the narration. I found it difficult to listen to and concentrate on what was being said. Enjoyed the book overall, however.
While we thoroughly enjoyed this book, my children and I all found the music distracting and completely unnecessary.
yes, great story
The narrator was extremely annoying with his whiney voice for Jonas. I felt the way he spoke his character made him weak. Too high a voice when speaking the characters. Distracting overall
I read this book in middle school 18 years ago. It was the first chapter book I can remember reading and it had such a profound impact that I began to read more, realizing that I loved to read and lose myself in great stories. I did not remember much of the details when I downloaded this purchase, but listening to it now puts me in awe all over again!
This story of a 12 year old boy in an alternate world tugs at your heartstrings and reminds the reader to cherish even the smallest of memories. In a world of sameness, with no color or pain, Jonas finds the courage to give back to the people what they lost so long ago... Love.
Great book for 5th grade to adults!
