I liked the original narrator. He did great with the different character voices.
It's hard to narrow it down to one thing.
Parts of it was done by someone else.
I bought this on a whim for my son, not really knowing what to expect. He has listened to it five times now - I have now confessed to him that there are more books in the series!
I enjoyed it very much seems like the type of thing perfect for teenage boys.
Can't really think of anything this book is really unique
The Narrator was great and matched the voices of the characters really good Makes it really exciting to listen to know what is coming next
Magical and adventure
Something my kids can read and yet it's got a good enough story I can still be interest and finish without rolling my eyes.
Most fantasy books I read are mostly urban fantasy. This one caught my interest when I read the publisher's summary. After the first few chapters, I was hooked.
Sophie was my favorite character. She was head strong between the twin. She was not easily influnced by some of the villians, even though she still was the archetypal "innocent character".
I just hate how influential Josh was through out the whole book. If someone told to jump in the lake, he probably would jump in the lake.
Formula with twist
Fablehaven but much better.. Plenty of good characters taken from history, myth and legend. Characters are 3 dimensional they have flaws, quirks and strenghts. Realistic Villans they believe they are doing what needs to be done. Not just evil for evils sake(eg Dr. John Dee)
The spider queen
Get ready for a ride accross the world, time and dimensions with new twists on chracters form history and legend.
not much more to say about this book other than this author needs a different editor and different talent for the audio version. very disappointing read/listen.
no. just this author.
mispronunciations mostly. but he also sounds as if this is is first read of the book. the characters aren't well developed and are one dimensional at best, but he could have put more effort into it.
badly written. badly read.
Sure. It's a good lead into what could be a very fun packed story somewhere down the line.
I would have done a lot less repeating facts and maybe would have spead up pace a bit. Not much happens in this book.
I liked them all the same.
The story is good, and it does leave the reading wanting to read more. I think there could have been a lot more told in this book...and that it wasn't so obvious what is going to happen between the brother and sister in the next book.
yes, creative ideas, the twins connection
I was hoping for more defind characters, Put off by Scott using other authors established personalities for his own books, it seemed lazy to ride of the coat tails of JK Rowlings character ideas. Author had some fun ideas , come up with your own original names for your characters.
The story is very imaginative and the inclusion of historical facts with a creative twist was very entertaining. I loved Scott's vision of how some historically significant individuals would fit into the modern world!
The writing was somewhat awkward at points and occasionally repetitive but I don't regret listening to it at all. I enjoyed it enough to drive my boyfriend crazy by talking about it all the time :)
