Listened to it for the second time and was captured even more than before. The performance bring to life the creativity and brilliance of Rick Riordan
This was a really good interpretation and history lesson on Egypt. I enjoyed the readers and the story. It has enticed me to learn more about ancient Egyptian and the gods they worshiped.
I love Fiction. Magic, Dragons, Wizards, and Spies!
I really enjoyed the performance of this book. Very easy listen. With the story, I felt every part I was wanting more. Needing more for it to be great!
I would recommend this book. It was action packed,, fast paced, and a lot of fun.
Like the two performers. The story line was fun and fast paced. Easy listen.
Funny, great pace and easy on the ears!
The beginning of a great adventure!
Variety in voice and inflection bring the characters to life. The whole family 11, 13, and "older" enjoyed it!
Rick Riordan is a great author, his stories are wonderful. The only thing I dislike about this story is that Sadie is only 12, she acts much more like an older girl. I also love that I know so much more about Egypts gods and how the Egyptians believed they existed. The thing that really makes this book stand out though is the performances. I love that they have 2 narrators a male and female. The performers are wonderful and make it easy to listen to the book. Compared to the Heros of Olympus these narrators are so much better.
I had to stop listening because the narrators are terrible... I love the story, but not the audio book.
Maybe, but probably not.
Without a doubt. I've struggled to get my son to read each night, and this has created quite a wonderful bartering tool. A little "regular" reading, and then we get to listen to the Kane Chronicles. I think he's listened to the entire set at least 3 times now, and keeps asking if another will be coming out.
I love both of the Kane kids, their humor is my cup of tea, but all of the supporting characters added so much.
They nailed it, what more can I say? Katherine gets a little loud at times, but they are supposed to be in the midst of chaos, so I suppose that is to be expected.
You simply can't go wrong with a Rick Riordan book.
