Definitely in the top 3
The vivid detail in which the story is told. It's very easy to visualize the different scenes.
Did you ever dream about falling into your favorite fairy tale? Well now you can.
This story is very appropriate for kids, but still has a bit of humor that adults will enjoy. While the story may be at bit predictable at times for an adult listener, it doesn't take away from the entertainment factor. Chris Colfer is an incredibly talented young man!
Audible Obsessed wishes she had more time for so many audiobooks.
At first I thought it was just another fairy tale book, kind of a rip off from the series Once Upon a Time, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Chris Colfer does an incredible job of creating a new plot from characters already known, and he has new characters, Connor and Alex live great adventures with the whole Happily Ever After gang.
The author shows wit through the characters in the book. I had more than a few laughs. I recommend this book for everyone. The whole family should read it, or listen to it. Chris does voices for ALL the characters in the book. It is amazing.
If you want to make your kids enjoy reading, this would be a good place to start.
Such a great story that I just did not want it to end. The tale of this sister and brother, their childhood up to this point and the great tragedy that lead them to the most amazing discovery and adventure of their life; it was truly captivating.
This one more the most part stands out on its own. If you read it your will see it reminds you of many other stories as it is meant to however the journey of these two main characters set this story apart from others.
Oh he did so wonderfully with all the accents, the vocal ranges and intensity it's hard to pick just one.
I laughed indeed just because the characters were so adorable and wonderful and cry? Well I reared up a few times for our poor twins who had to go through such hard times.
This is a great story for young and old a like. I will venture back to this book at sometime indeed.
this is a favorite of mine.
this rivals the Never-ending Story. I can't wait for a sequential!
Granmother is my favorite
both at times. These characters have never seemed more real.
I can't wait to hear about their next trip.
...this story is just not a strong story ..I don't know who would like it ...I had very high hopes for it !
no not at all ...When you read a lot it is a hit or miss....this was just one of those misses !
I did not like his reading ...Love him ..but not his reading
...don't give up !
I really liked how Chris wove many favorite story tales into the main story. Good Job
I don't think authors should preform their own work. I love Chris Colfer as an actor, but his reading of the story had no character differentiation, no change in voice or inflection.
Kate Redding would have been a great choice for narrator.
I would listen to this book again and so would my kids. It's great for the whole family. It was fantastic on our long car rides this summer. The length is good and because of it I know I can reintroduce it again in a few months and the kids will like to listen to it again. There is always something you miss the first time around due to distractions or potty breaks etc.
That it's a fairytale and it revisits all those stories that we used to be told and believed in. And it really makes you think about the lessons they thought, it gives more meaning and background to simple stories.
Remembering my childhood memorys through the stories
He makes a voice for each of the characters, and being a children's book with fantasy characters it makes them easier to picture, and being the author just brings a little something more to the experience
Almost, honestly there's so much happening in terms of action that you have to breath a little to keep going.
This story is very predictable but it is proficiently written - although far too long for a middle grade novel. Chris Colfer's fake british accents are incredibly annoying. This book doesn't really feel fresh but Colfer (or his ghost writer) is a capable writer who is able to bring these cliches to life.
I thought of this one for grandkids and found that I really enjoyed this read. A whole new look at the classic fairy tales that truly drew me in. I would be interested in more from this author and would not hesitate to download more if offered on Audible.
