Simply Farm girl from Montana. I love books, books with strong characters and strong females. Also happy endings.
Great book very well imagined and a nice ghost story. Excited to read (listen to) the rest of the series.
Thus far it is like Harry Potter. A young boy with a gift and a purpose that he as yet has no clue how to use or focus in order to fight for the greater good mostly he is succeeding by accident.
I didn't appreciate the random background music. He makes Alice's character sound sneaky and sarcastic instead of sweet or even innocent. If a girl talked to me in that way with that tone of voice i wouldn't trust her
Haven't finished the book still have about an hour left. at this time I am really worried about Elly and the baby.
I actually bought this book on my kindle first- but the dialect used by the characters was a little distracting and I had a really hard time getting past the fist ten percent. Last night I decided to download the audio book while at work since I had gotten to a particularly sad part in The Return of the King and I needed a break. I am so glad I did. The narrator really brought this to life. I listened all night and I really didn't want to go to sleep this morning. He did a marvelous job with consistency so you always knew which character was speaking. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series and possibly listening along. I wish this was an immersion read so I didn't have to catch myself up by flipping through so many pages. It was worth the extra trouble though. This is a fun story. It has memorable lines such as the fathers advice on women. I highly recommend this if you need a quick walk through a fantasy world.
It's a simple story and not too hard to figure out. But the narrator is good and it passes the time.
It's a good start for young people to find audible.
I liked this book a lot. Can't wait for the movie. I wish it was longer, that's my only real complaint. It's an interesting twist on wizard and witches. Reminds me a bit if Harry potter but a bit darker in nature
