Although I thoroughly enjoyed as well, my elementary kids look forward to every car ride to listen. I have read all 12 books and feel it is appropriate for their age level (meaning only a kiss or two throughout the whole series). But I do recommend reading/listening with them to address other issues that may be concerning to them (war, slavery, etc.).
NOTE: according to the author in beginning book 7, book 7 takes place between 4 and 5; I recommend reading 7 after 4.
So correct order of sequence is
1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 5, 6, 8.....

I love this series so much that I have lost track of how many times I have read or listened to the books. The narrator, Mr. Keating, is very talented and one of my favorites (I am a narrator snob)
This is at least my second time listening to this book. It moved along at a good pace and is interesting. The narrator is one of my favorites. I put him up there with the guy that narrates the Harry Potter books.
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!
