The narrator...I think the whole series would benefit from a different narrator...one that has a talent for different voices and moods and would inject some suspense and adventure into the story.
No book comes to mind. Sorry.
It is if you like Carolyn McCormick's portrayal of the characters. I am not a real big fan of hers, so no, it was not worth the listening time.
How the kids were finally able to rally the magicians and gods to fight Apophis.
The narrators, especially the male. His portrayals of the characters were so good. The female narrator was also good, but of the two, I prefer the male's portrayals.
I think so...When things got panicky, the narrators got panickier. When things got sad, the narrators got sad. When things sped up or slowed down, the narrators matched.
I laughed a lot, but I wouldn't say that it was "extreme". So, no, I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book.
Having two narrators to tell the story...I like how they play off each other's energy.
For some reason, I liked Bes. Not sure if it's his attitude or his willingness to sacrifice himself for the greater good, but I liked him the best.
Yes...They did a great job with their voice tones and speed of talking for each character.
How can you??? It's too long to listen in one sitting, but I would have loved to be able to hear it in all one sitting...I guess if I had 12 hours of uninterrupted time, I would have.
BEST - the fact that a male and female narrators were used...the Egyptian theme of the book
LEAST - I would have liked to hear more of a contrast between characters' voices.
This was the first Rick Riordan audiobook I've listened to.
The narrators could have had more contrast between characters' voices. I couldn't tell what gender the character was if I was just listening to the audiobook, but luckily I was reading the e-book at the same time so it didn't matter.
As it is part of a series, this book doesn't need its own follow-up book.
The narrator...The whole series would have benefited from a different narrator...One that has a talent for voices.
The way the author places doubt in the heroine's mind about every single thing...from herself to her mission to her friends.
NO!!!I thought her portrayal was one-dimensional...undramatic...overdone... As you can tell, I'm not a real big fan of hers.
No, not really. Sorry.
This is the first Sherlock Holmes story I've read/listened to. Also, Alan Cumming's reading of it was very engaging and easy to listen to.
The whole mystery.
I have never listened to any of Alan Cumming's other stories...I would like to, though. He's a very gifted reader of audiobooks.
Yes...it was short and sweet. I enjoyed listening to it all in one sitting.
Yes, I would try another book from Suzanne Collins. I'm not too thrilled about Carolyn McCormick's rendition of this story or the others in the series.
The action sequences...the relationships between the characters...
Catching Fire already has a follow-up book, as it is part of a series. I don't think it needs a "Part 2" if that is what is meant by this question.
