I really enjoyed this story in the Bayern Books. It was great to see how Razo's giftings came out and they weren't the mystical type. This book was funny and my family and I laughed out loud many times. Every time Razo realized he was good at something I was happy for him. This book reminded me a lot of the tv program "Psych." I would definitely recommend this book. Shannon Hale is a great author and the team of actors voicing the story are the same voices as the first two books. Good series and this book might be my favorite.....after "Goose Girl."
We liked this book! I liked that Sage was his own person and never changed his character throughout the story. The book made and answered a lot of questions. Excellent listen! The narrarator did a great job too! My daughter commented that it was similar to "The Goose Girl" which happens to be one of my favorites.
Set in medieval times, the story is about an orphan who is trained to be the prince who will be crowned King. The orphan(Sage) has more character than everyone gives him credit for. I can't wait to listen to book 2!
Ender's Game is an interesting story about super smart kids in an adult world. I let my teenager listen but not my younger kids. It's not really a children's book. Ender is taken to a battle school where he excels in all the training and has a hard time socially because of it. This is definitely an underdog story. It also raises a lot of ethical questions that are good discussion points. If this were a movie it would probably be rated R because there is a lot of graphic violence, some nudity and some cussing. I believe a movie is being made and I hope they take out the words and nudity because the story is a good story and I think my kids would like to see it.
This is a great story about a man whose daddy was white and mama was a black Native American. Both parents love him but because of his color he can't be loved the same way as his white brothers by his daddy. My family listened to this book on a long trip and everyone liked it. My youngest is 10 and oldest is 15. We all were wiping our eyes and cheering for Paul Edward Logan. GOOD story! The narrator was awesome!
I haven't tried the print version.
Maybe the first Percy Jackson book. The heroine doesn't know who she is and has a low opinion of herself. By the end she transforms.
No but I really loved the character voices in this book.
There were several moments that made me cry, laugh and down right nervous!
The author did a great job of retelling the fairy tale. The original story put a lot of questions in your mind. Shannon Hale answered every one and was very original with the answers.
This book had it all; action, love, fear, fun moments and frustration. Love, love, Love,LOVE this book! listened to this book two times in a row and it's a pretty long book!
An entertaining book
The book is similar to the Benedict Society. Of course the kids are the heros that save the world from evil take over.
He did a great job reading.
While the under cover names and such was an alluring concept for a book, the first chapter or two almost drove us crazy! It kept trying to convince you not to read the book for your own safety! Which was funny the first few minutes but it seemed to go on and on! Reading the book would have made it easier to skip those pages and move on. The book is good despite the slow start. The idea of smell communication and confusion of the senses was original. You'll like this book if you can make it past the intro.
