I really enjoyed this book,it is definitely geared towards teens but i liked it (I am 32) and went on to buy the next in the series which happens to be equally good. Narration is particularly well done as well.
this is a really good book, the narrators voice and accent are appropriate for the book which is important, the wrong voice and really throw off the feel of a book, this is one that i read a few years ago ,it was as good to listen to as it was to read. highly recommend.
I know this a classic but i found it to be so boring that i didn't continue past half way, it was interesting enough at first (maybe the first hour of listening) but soon became very redundant,i think the story is cool but as much as i tend to dislike the practice, it would be better abridged.
i loved the story, i didn't love some of the authors political ramblings, i think he was trying to give the book more meaning and tie it in to the real world by going on and on at times about the politics of "OZ" the discrimination between humans and animals who have human like intelligence and the governments secret quest to control everything completely, it could have been touched upon and had a better effect but instead he drug it into the ground, i listen to it all and found that you could just fast forward through the ramblings and it would have zero effect on the overall story which supports my feeling that the author made a mistake in dedicating so many pages to political rambling on.
anyway,despite that i truly did enjoy the book and would definitely recommend it,it is overall a good book.
this is a well done short story that i have listened to a couple of times. seems to have meaning to it beyond that of the story at face value.
great book, very good narration, never gets boring, very creative author, its a teen book but i am in my 30's and i enjoyed it just fine.
