NO. Could have been a good series, I had high hopes after having read most of Brandon Sanderson's other works. I bought all three books together, so I felt compelled to finish them. If I had had books I would have skimmed like mad. The narrative style of the book was so annoying that I'm sure people in other cars were looking at me funny as I made faces at my speakers.
It was a good story, but being told this way left me just happy when each book was over, I don't think I could list something memorable.
The narrator was clear and had a great voice.
No, I can't get that time back. I listen during my 3 hour/daily commute. I was trapped with this one, then felt compelled to listen to the rest as I had already purchased them.
Don't let this put you off any of Brandon Sanderson's other series. It felt like he wrote this one when he was 13.
love this book, love the story, love the implications, find the cut ins somewhat irritating bit mostly amusing. would Def recommend
First off, the performance is outstanding. The premise is wondefully original, but the way it's told was a little too Hitchhiker's Guide meets A Wrinkle in Time for my taste. It's fun and imaginative, but a little too campy and predictable at times for me to be clamoring for the next one.
painful read, i knew from the first chapter but i suffered thru it.....
i really enjoyed the mistborn series, so i was willing to look past a silly title in hopes the well reviewed book was going to be another hit, but it was really just a book meant for the middle school reader. lame 1 dimensional characters, weak story, blah "final fight scene" and ending.
Audiobooks are great tool in dealing with my ADHD. They limit distractions while listening and I don't have to sit still. PS. I can't spell
Got it as part of a two for one and it wasn't half bad. It was a bit too young for my taste
Best. Narrator. Ever. each character has a distinct voice , great expression. My daughter was entranced by this wonderful book and can't wait to read the next book. adults should listen carefully, as there are many in jokes that the kids may not pick up.
Couldn't stand this book long enough to get through the first chapter. The writing is clunky and not good. The narration is not good, either. The tone is a combination of whinging and smirking....Sanderson sucks me in with great ideas, but the writing is mediocre every time. I think it could have been saved with skilled narration (maybe), but we will never know. Skip this one.
