After listening to this story I decided to have my reluctant readers read it together. They love it! After each chapter the students write done the main idea of the chapter, and make a comment. Their comments are on the advice that was given by Origami Yoda. Sometimes they come up with alternative solutions. They can relate to the story because they are in 6th grade just like the characters in the book. We are even doing origami together. Eventually we will try to create Origami Yoda. They are very interested in reading Darth Paper next.
Cute story about a time traveling computer geek that becomes a wizard in medieval England.
This story was exciting. Perhaps it was the time in history that was more interesting. It followed the Underground Railroad, and Harriet Tubman was in the story line. I loved the singing. It was short, but very appropriate. The narrator did a great job on this one.
This book was better than the first. There was more action and dialogue, and less lecturing. I'm interested enough to try the 3rd book.
Interesting story, but there was almost too much history. I enjoy time travel stories, but this was a little too much like a history lecture at times.
This was not easy to find. It is another story thread after the Cahills vs. Vespers book 6. The exciting story continues as Amy and Dan struggle against evil. The narrator did a good job.
Katherine Kellgren is my favorite narrator. When I am looking for a new book to listen to, I often check out her work. I love how Katherine brings the characters to life with her different accents so I can visualize each person as they speak. It is because of Ms. Kellgren that I discovered this series by Karen Harper. I really like historical fiction, so this seemed like a good fit.
Queen Elizabeth I is very spunky and resourceful in this book. She is not queen when the book begins, but as a plot to kill her is thwarted, she becomes queen by the end. There were some steamy parts that I could have done without, but they did not get explicit.
Now I want to listen to book 2.
I chose this book because it is narrated by Katherine Kellgren, and she is my favorite narrator. I loved her English, Irish, Scottish, and Russian accents. She really made the characters come alive. I liked how the author entwined two stories and two timelines. I love historical fiction, and learned about the Jacobites. I hope the author will continue the story of Nicola and Rob, and how they unravel future mysteries.
Skeeve and Aahz have their hands full as bad luck plagues the new owners of a pyramid, and everyone else who buys into the project. I enjoyed the humor and characters once again, and the narrator did a terrific job. At the end of the audiobook I was sad to learn that Robert Asprin had passed away. I have enjoyed this series very much. The last six books were coauthored by Jody Lynn Nye. I wonder if she will pen another Myth Adventure. I’d love to learn of the further adventures of Skeeve, Aahz, and company. Thanks to Robert Asprin for making me laugh when I needed it the most.
Skeeve and Aahz compete against each other for president of Myth Inc. In the end there is a surprise twist when the president of Myth Inc. is announced. It was nice having the main characters back together along with a new cast. The narrator did another amazing of job of keeping the story moving along. There is never a dull moment when Skeeve and his crew have a goal in sight.
Aahz and Tanada lead the cast of characters in this book. It still has humor and witty dialogue, but there are several talking inanimate objects. I am not really a fan of animating many objects because I find it hard keeping all of them separate in my mind, especially when the names are unusual. Aahz is still his irascible self, but his noble side also shines through. I am hoping that Myth Inc. will get back together. It would be nice to have a story with the main characters together again. The narrator did a great job as usual.
