I really enjoyed this series. It had twist and turns I didn't see coming but that is what makes a good story.
Suzanne Collins did a great job with this series. My 14 year old son also loved the series. I think everyone that I know that has read the books say that they do not think they would like them but they are very addicting.
I enjoyed this narator but surprisingly I listened to Suzanne Collins read part of the first chapter and maybe she would have done better... Anyway, Thanks for another great listen!
I have read all of the Pern books & Out of all of them Jaxsom and Ruth are the most memorable of them all! Every boy wants a dragon. And this is a story where one boy gets his dream and proves to the world he and his dragon are just as good as the rest.
Are you serious! This book gets good reviews! I made it through half of the book and could not endure anymore! This girl is beyond stupid and excentric! If I meet my Bio parents and they were the ones this girl had I would run home, Pray that nurture is stronger than nature and get a VERY good shrink! Instead she moves to live next to them and breaks into song every chance she gets! Do the world a favor! Buy this book for every little girl who thinks she is adopted! It will cure her of the fantasy and be thankful for what she has!
Borring, Predictable, and enough cheezy moment it would help if you had crackers and wine to help it go down.
Serious they are going to make a movie out of this! I pass! the book was bad enough.
Are you serious! They killed a tree for this garbage!
With all the talk and producing a movie from this book I thought I would give it a try. Why in the world anyone spend more money on this that was already wasted! This is a book I will delete from my computer and NEVER waste another minute with. Just in case you are wondering the high points of the book were the previews for the movie! Watch the trailers online and you see the best it has to offer!
This book was slightly better than the first one, but only just!
Honestly I think watching a 1980's re-run of a televangelist would have been more entertaining. The only thing missing was someone jumping up and claiming they were saved... Oh wait I think that was in this also!
After reading this series I have to wonder if the author is related to Tammy Faye Bakker.
Wow! I am never hard on books but this is the exception! Others said this book was bad and I thought I would try. I even went so far to get the next one to see if there was something I was missing.
Forget my money/credits! I just want my life back that I put into this!
Any book that you have to read the last 2 minutes 5 times to make sure you didn't miss something is just wrong!
Exceptionaly good book. My son started reading it before me and he kept saying that Brendan Fraser was too good of a reader. I laughed and didn't pay much attention. Now that I have listened to Brendan I am shocked at how wonderful he was. The voices were wonderful. "You felt the book comming to life, as if this is what it had been waiting for." Listening to this book I am almost shocked the characters were not next to me. I am disapointed that he did not read all three of the books. I will gladly purchase the book Dragon Rider that he reads also.
As for the book itself, If you didn't like the first one, give this a try. If you did like the first one... DO Not Pass this one!
Again it is hard to read Ink Death without Brendan!
Book is about a modern girl living in the past or more specificaly with Colin Firth in the A&E version of Pride. (who can blame her)
The first time I listened to this book, the first part was a bit to extreeme (I don't hide my version in a plant after all!) but as you go get to the arival at Austenland the book makes you laugh. I have listened to the book a few times now and I laugh even at the beginning. If you enjoy Jane Austen you will enjoy this book, especialy if you have ever dreamed of finding your own Mr. Darcy.
