Production decision to augment voice with schmaltzy movie music showed a lack of faith in the strength of the story and the storyteller. A sad decision.
This book and series is wonderful. I have listened to this book with my daughter who was 10 at the time. We both enjoyed it. This is one of those book series that is interesting for a child but also has so much meaning and depth for the adult listener.
- Not my favorite reader voice, but it was fine.
- Like another reviewer said... music was distracting. It didn't add anything to the story- it would start and end at seemingly random times. It stuck out.
I hate the naration
The guy narrating us always swallowing and breathing realky hard
The voice he gives Jonas is as if Jonas was an eight year old.
But the story is so wonderfull,I bought the paperback afterwards.
