The character development and performance were great. The adventure on the carpet was funny and the castle oddly familiar until you realize why.
I would have to say the Genie. For one you wonder how on earth will they ever ask a wish that could be fulfilled without disaster.
You would catch the funny parts but now perhaps in the way you would while listening to someone. She has the ability to pull you into the character's mind and absorb you into the plot... what's coming next...
The section of the book when they had to guess the secret name through when the Genie and carpet "changed" back into my 2 of my favorite character's from Howl's moving castle.
very entertaining... I love how we got to learn more about each the heroes.
this book and the previous books in this series all stick together as a whole. But it kind of reminded me of the red pyramid meets Diana Jones.
not Joshua Swanson
When Bob came through for Percy at the Elevator and when Jason learned a little about nico and didn't share his secret... didn't see that coming, but thought it was written appropriately for younger readers.
I liked Nick's enthusiasm for the characters in the story, it's not always easy switching out narrators in a series, but he gave good effort.
The characters really came to life, by the end of the story you felt as if you knew each one.
It's a toss up, I liked " Barbie" and Rusty. They were strong leads who were always busy protecting everyone, extremely entertaining at times and empathetic to the characters around them.
Twitch was great! Raul did an excellent job keeping Twitches accent/stoner vibe, but also made it clear he was smart.
I thought all the remaining characters at the domes edge were pretty memorable. They lost family members, patients, were arrested, harassed or abused, and the ones who made it back into the "world" at the end remained strong.
I found myself smiling when I'd recognize and actor portraying a character in the book, excellent cast.
I had a few characters I found interesting and entertaining, but since the book was set up as an interview, I remember more stories than character names.
Yes, it was hard to put it down.
Yes, not knowing what this book would have in it or who the author was I would recommend it. It's an easy read filled with random tidbits of information. Corey's performance is very conversational and the stories were filled with great illustrative detail.
I could have done with less explicit language and ramblings about religious points of view, otherwise it was very entertaining.
I liked his memories of "the mansion" and his friend "jack" and his experience with his parents.
I found him funny to listen to in general... there is nothing I can think of that he didn't nod to at some point in the book.
yes, it's engaging and very funny. And great to listen to while driving to work.
The rest of the series... it's very consistent with quality characters and story line
To laughter, yes... something from every section caught my attention
