I like to listen because I don't have time to read. Who has time to sit and read when you can be doing things and listen?
This was my late nephews favorite book series, it was a lot of fun to read something he enjoyed so much! Definitely A preteen novel.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I really like a good children's book. This one borders on being both a children's book and YA book. The characters are great, the bad guy gives just enough logic to his madness that you are kept guessing what the good guys will do. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to listening to more from this series. In a way it reminded me of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Chronicles of Nick series, just not as dark. Maybe because Fred Berman reads some of her books but both were excellent audiobooks. Maybe some of the ideas are not quite original, but the telling of the story caught and held my attention. Narrator of course is great. Some of my favorite kids series are of course Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and How to train your Dragons.
I have had family members who have read this book and told me I should too, I was hesitant because, well Christmas Box meets fantasy didn't sound that appealing to me. I am happy to report there was a complete absence of the Christmas Box. Looking forward to the next three books.
Very similar to Percy Jackson as far as powers and audience goes. I enjoyed the storyline and the unique concepts
Finally a Hero with TS. What a great read. my family listened to it on a long road trip. It kept us all entertained. From ages 45 to 15 we all loved it.
The author succeeds in making promises and delivering on them. He fails by creating characters that are servants to the plot. I could often tell where the story was going based on these character deviations.
The narrator had many voices... but fell back to California valley girl for nearly every woman.
Overall, pretty good. I'm probably too old for it, but it was funish.
