the story takes some time to start, then moves quickly. the reader does have a variety of voices for each character but he also seems to take long breaths. there were times I thought my phone has died he took such a long break.

There is a God of audio books! I was again tramping up and down the offerings from"home", my wish list, and "Browse Audible" Sci Fi section, becoming more frustrated by the minute! I didn't want to start a trilogy or series that only had one book out or have to listen to a book at least 10 years old that was a true "stand alone". Then there was the revel-
ation: an author by the name of Flanagan had a series that had a series and I stopped counting at 17! I located the first book, plunked down a credit, and the rest is history! John Keating was the narrator and he did a great job with the reading (probably because he didn't sound like he was reading it!). The Ruins of Gorlan is a zesty adventure had by students of a military school that has plenty of action, strife, bullies, heroism and good guys. And I've got at least 16 more to go!
Yes, this is one of my favorite paper back books, and it was read in a way that I could keep up with it.
I like the rise and fall of the action. One minute it's slow, the next it's almost too fast to keep up with, and you have to read or listen to a part again.
I like his annunciation and the pace he reads at. I had previously tried audiobooks and had a negative experience, but I found I could keep up with the story at the pace he read.
Yes. To avoid the worst of the spoilers- "I am a ranger."
Knights, Castles, Adventures
Inheritance Cycle. Both series allow you to watch the characters grow and change from young boys to incredible young men.
Brings the characters to life in a different way than I would have just by simply reading the book. My visions of the world created by the narrator and author would vary simply because of the way I think and talk. The authors accent brings a more realistic vibe to it than the accents and voices I would have created in my own mind.
In some way both. The fact that I can compare certain characters to people I know or have known gives parts of the book an underlying humor adults would understand.
Even though its under the kids section this is still a great read for me. I love books set in the time of knights and castles and mythical creatures. I will certainly buy a hard copy of this series to add to the bookcase of things I will read to my son as he grows up.
Don't miss out on reading and enjoying this wonderfully written series! Team Flanagan & Keating are the best!!!
Quick read compelling plot wonderful narration . excited to read the next book great characters for a young adult novel highly recommend for ages 12 to 15
