I loved that I thought the book was ending a couple times and then Stephens "twisted" the plot and kept it going!
Very hard! LOVED so many characters. I guess Emma if I can just choose one! :-)
I loved that he made the characters so unique and personable. Jim Dale always brings the characters to life! Some listeners didn't like that Mr. Dale's voices were British when the kids were born in Baltimore. But I thought it worked well with the fairy tale elements and the over-the-top personalites of the characters.
Why has no one ever heard of Cambridge Falls or the orphanage there?
Jim Dale is my favorite narrator. I fell in love with him as a little girl watching Pete's Dragon. Doc Terminus was awesome! (What can I say, I started my bad boy phase at 4 years old.) I will buy any book that he narrates, and I have not been disappointed yet!
This book was an unexpected surprise. It was unique, interesting, exciting and kept me guessing the entire time. When it was over I was revved up and ready for the next book in the series, only to find it was not due out for quite some time.
If you enjoy big, bold, magical adventures (not to mention the soothing voice of the audio-book master, Jim Dale) give this book a shot. I don't think you will be disappointed!
Jim Dale is truly a master storyteller. This book along with his fabulous performance sucks you in and holds you until the end. I can't wait for the next book in this series!
Like harry potter
The three children were very likable.
We got this book because we missed hearing Jim dale. he is one of the best readers we have ever had the pleasure of listening to.
The book keeps the reader wanting to keep going.
Great book for 10 YEAR OLDS AND UP
Good Story as always Jim Dale is an excellent story teller.
It was suspensful - Kept my interest
I am a travel listener to and from work. I go through 100-125 books a year
I thought the story could of been a bit stronger. The book made you want more so I hope they add more details in the next one. Could of done without the first 2 or 3 chapters.
The christmas party was the most interesting part. The very beginning of the book was least
Yes I can listen to anything Jim Dale I believe. But his performance with Harry Potter is the best.
I hadn't heard of this book but the sample got me interested enough to buy it. There's an unexpected twist to this story of young people -- subjected to adult decisions without reason or explanation -- that I found endearing. I hope Stephens will continue this series.
that it was such a fun kids book for the whole family to listen to
not realy because it's a fantasy novel
It wasn't bad it's just that since he narrorated Harry Potter I can't imagine him doig anythig else.
please excuse any spelling/grammer errors im kinda in a rush
This isn't the kind of book I normally read, but somehow it caught my eye, and I'm glad it did. I enjoyed the humor of the childrens' relationships with each other, knowing that they loved each other deeply. I thought th narrator was perfect for this book.
It's the kind of book you listen to over and over again, just because it's so well done.
