the story of the Island of the Blue Dolphins has always been one of my favorites it brings back so many memories of my childhood. I believe I was eight years old when I first was read this story and once I found it on Audible I just had to listen to it once again
We listened to Island of the Blue Dolphins as a family whenever we had more then a few minutes time. It's an incredibly interesting, well written, and captivating story. My 7 year old enjoyed it almost as much as my 10 year old. A bit scary and intense at times for a 7 year old but all in all it's worth your time and money.
Nicely paced narration when coupled with the book. The authors tone, while well integrated, would often shift at awkward stages from editing cuts. The music between chapters was a bit too prolonged and two noticeable narrative mistakes were not caught. Despite these remarks the narration choice suited the story well.
A great audio read. Makes me love the story all over again. If you've never read or heard about the story then give it a shot.
his book has stayed with me since I first read it more than 50 years ago. I listened to it with my 8-year-old granddaughter and was thrilled to see her enjoy it as much as I had at her age. Perhaps 50 years from now she might share it with her own grandchildren.
Yes, quality and easy access makes it a good fit.
Hatchet. The storyline deals with survival of an adolescent in nature.
Karana, I love first person.
I wish chapters were already pre set and you didn't have to fast forward so slowly and bookmark. Also, the fast forward options are too spread out, it took a long time to organize for my classroom and is why I am canceling my Audible subscription.
