exciting, original, well-written
Jason, Rachel and Ferrin ...really!
his voices are wide-ranging and excellent!
travel to a world you would never imagine.
I can't wait for the third book (on tape)!!!!
I love that the twist and turn in the plots
The tempo of this book was awesome everytime i thought ok its safe to take a short break it sucked me in even further.
The authors loyalty to his characters was FANTASTIC
I got this book thinking it might be a great book to listen to with my children (10-13) and i am sure it will be when we take our next trip. I was more then pleasntly shocked when i realized it was 4am and i was still sucked into the story. Though the story cover some more advanced social topics, the story never suffers in the least. i hope you enjoy the twists and turns as much as I did.
BEWARE the HIPPO
I bought both the hard copy and the audiobook, and the audiobook kept putting me to sleep. The reading is just sluggish. The reader zaps the energy and momentum out of the book. I abandoned the audiobook, and simply read the last half on my own - I enjoyed it much more. I plan to read the next installment of the series, but I hope it will be an improvement on the first.
I loved the story. It is one of the most creative stories I have read. I read the books and loved them so much I got the audio books to listen on my commute. The performance is good, the story is the best. Have I mentioned I love this story.
This is probably the fifth or sixth time I've read this book. My kids have read it, my wife has read it, even my friends have read it. For fantasy it doesn't get better than this.
Beyonders is the best series I've ever read.
The beginning of the book was so interesting that I found the next few chapters rather slow but by the time I reached the Blind King I couldn't get enough of the story!
probably the worst audio I have listened to so far
The Story was creative and intriguing. I am curious to see how the fall of the wizard actually happens.
I did not Like Jeremy Bobbs performance here. I like him in Money:Master the Game by Toni Robins but not this. Too many characters for him and he doesn't connect emotionally to the writing. When an emphatic NO!! should be used, he casually says no. Its that way through the whole book and there is no distinction really between characters personalities. Hard to know whos talking because every character except Theron is exactly the same.
Sometimes the simplest heroes are the ones who don't think they are.
