Paks sets out on an adventure and there is plenty in this book. This is completely different than the first book. My only complaint is the narrators choice for the elves. This is silly on my part, but they sound like the aliens in the "Galaxy Quest" movie and it grates on my nerves.
A friend recommended this book and I am so glad that I listened. He tells the story with honesty and also the raw pain that anyone would feel. My heart was just torn apart by the pain that he suffered yet he chose to forgive and thus lose that additional hatred that could have ruined him. Most of us would have both the grief and the hatred that would eat at our souls. I hope that I can remember the lessons that were taught in this book. Thank you Mr. Williams!
I enjoy great YA books. This story is very enjoyable and like the title implies, it does play off of the Avatar movie. There is a mystery and the suspense is enjoyable. This is a great, lighthearted series. Carol drives me crazy, however in real life she is very close to a lot of middle school girl personalities.
I love this type of story. Born Free, We bought a Zoo, etc. This true story of Lawrence's love for animals had me from the first sentence. The title is also perfect. I enjoyed his wife, employee's, and the multiple local tribes. It is a "feel good" book where a special man tackles a seemingly impossible project and through many trials makes it work. I was fascinated by the personalities of the elephants.
Very much a YA book. My heart went out to Aubrey when he found out the truth to his life and how he had unknowingly played a part in multiple deaths. As I look back on the book, there were some interesting themes, however as a whole the story seems too contrived for even YA to enjoy the implausible story and ending.
Sure, however I have not read it. I enjoy Audible books because I can multi-task and I also enjoy the talented narrators whose voices bring the story to life.
Not just one! It is action filled from beginning to end. However if I had to pick just one, it would be the end. I am not good at solving murder mysteries and I was surely caught off guard on this one.
I usually do not enjoy books with multiple stories or twists and turns. However, I was fascinated with all of the stories and the perfect ending. 23 hours went by so fast.
I have heard various Lake Wobegon stories on NPR and was anxious to listen to this. I love this type of dry humor. However, within the first half hour, I was very unimpressed with the constant barrage of sexual stories including Viagra. I guess that I am a prude, but proud of it.
Sure, if I knew of any that were clean.
"Clean" it up.
Talented, Kind, Giving
Jim of course. It was fascinating to find out the details of his life and how his shows, movies, and characters were thought up and then evolved. He was kind and gentle almost to a fault, thus endearing him to everyone close to him. My children grew up with Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, Dark Crystal, The Labyrinth, Ninja Turtles, The Muppets, etc. I do agree with Roald Dahl's opinion of Henson's version of The Witches Movie, I hate it! I was sad that the author did not go into detail about Sesame Street. Henson adored his children, throughout the book stories were interlaced with his love for them. That alone elevated my opinion of this gentle giant.
I did enjoy his performance, however he never did get any of the voices right which was a slight distraction.
Heavens no, it was too long.
I was saddened that he was too stubborn to seek medical help when he became it. He could still be with us!
Story after story of bad corporate or personal decisions. I laughed with each story and the memory of when it happened.
I enjoyed everything about this book! I am a grandmother and would like my g'kids to read this when they are older. It is a book that would bring younger children to to become interested in some stories in history. Kind of a Harry Potter situation where the students can witness history in a life like visual effect. Also an Avatar aspect where the students can control animals. I will be listening to more of this series. I also like Kirby Heyborne as the narrator.
I listened to this book a couple months ago and it is still on my mind. It touched me heart, It is a feel good book (not really, but to me it was) about a broken man and a broken dog. Both needed each other. This book is in my top ten just because for some reason at this time in my life, the story touched me and I wanted to listen to it constantly. This book will go on my "to listen to again sometime in the future" list.
