My bad, but that said, I enjoyed it a lot. I HATE getting hooked into series. I want an author to write a book first and foremost, not see authorship as a franchise opportunity, but I really want to see where this goes. Oh well.
I enjoyed this book. It is well written with a good pace. However it does use the standard cliches. The beautiful cheerleader who falls for the outcast loner. The smart, but fat and socially awkward best friend. The bully who turns out to be not so bad...You get the idea.
There are a few moments that feel forced, one in particular near the end of the book, but those are few. The plot makes sense, and the characters have decent motivation for their decisions.
I was disappointed by the protagonist. Michael Vey has Tourette's syndrome. This has no impact on the plot, the characters, or even their plans. And there are moments when a 15 year old with Tourette's should have to work harder or smarter to achieve what his goals.
But this may be a fantasy book for teens who struggle with various ailments and just want to be accepted as normal.
Very fun for a youth novel.
I enjoyed the interaction amoung the characters who really sounded like 15 year olds.
He does a great job giving each character an individual personality.
Enjoyed this book, funny, interesting story, but it isfor a younger audience. I did not like the second book in the series and in fact didn't finish it.
I don't know
Not that I know of
Yes, I went from one to the next.
This was a very interesting storyline, characters and filled with action. I enjoyed the science fiction of it as well! I kept thinking "these are kids' books?", but I do think my oldest granddaughter would like them. I got the recommendation from the Glenn Beck radio show I believe. Glad I followed his advice!
Yes, Fred Bernen does an excellent job.
He narrates the first two books and is much better at the kid's voices than the 3rd books narrator.
Who else but Michael Vey, although I love Austin too.
No, but I will.
NO, but faster than normal.
Hurry up with book #4.
I did not read the printed version
No swearing, nor obscenity, and it was funny, and captivating.
I Am Number Four, meets, Diary of a Wimpy Kid
The narrator did a fabulous job!
YES!!! I actually did extra yard work so that I could!!!!!!
I would suggest this book to anyone! What a great book! Mix between Harry Potter and Artims Fowl.....GREAT BOOK! Can't wait to listen to the next one!
I would recommend this book to any one who wants to read an entertaining book.
This week this one is my favorite.
I am listening to this one for a second time and it is just as good. Both the story and Fred Berman's narration. His voices and character development is incredible. I love this series.
All of them, each comes alive so well, with Fred's talented voice control.
Voices and ability to express emotion in his voice.
This was a great book. Kept me wanting to listen. Can't wait for the next book if there is one.
