I believe that this book is a great book for children to learn friendship and bravery. The author writes in a way children under five or six years old can understand. This book is a great book for a family to read together, it is a fun, entertaining,and a page-turner book.
This historical fiction is captivating and the narration is extremely well done. The narrator successfully gives each character of the story (of which there are many both male and female) a distinct, recognizable, and nuanced voice. The history of Venice at the end of the 14th century comes to life herein.
This narration is very entertaining and informative. Because of the author's evident bias in favor of evolutionary theory and global warming, a critical listener might want to pair this audio with Michael Crichton's "State of Fear" (also available on audible.com) and perhaps a book on Intelligent Design. Despite these lapses into popular pseudo-science, the narration presents a fresh look into the all-too-human nature of the scientists we otherwise regard as godlike or have, unfortunately, never heard of. The listener will also gain a much needed appreciation of how very little modern man really knows his environment and the way things work.
