Such a great story that I just did not want it to end. The tale of this sister and brother, their childhood up to this point and the great tragedy that lead them to the most amazing discovery and adventure of their life; it was truly captivating.
This one more the most part stands out on its own. If you read it your will see it reminds you of many other stories as it is meant to however the journey of these two main characters set this story apart from others.
Oh he did so wonderfully with all the accents, the vocal ranges and intensity it's hard to pick just one.
I laughed indeed just because the characters were so adorable and wonderful and cry? Well I reared up a few times for our poor twins who had to go through such hard times.
This is a great story for young and old a like. I will venture back to this book at sometime indeed.
Such an awesome series! Jacky Faber is the best, I simply love her mischief and heart. The narrator brings each character their own fantastic voice and the story comes to life.
This story kept me hanging on but I was highly disappointed by the ending. I really felt like it left a lot untold. This story created a lot of questions and then ends with few answered.
I don't know, they all were pretty good
Ehh... I guess. Like I said before, unanswered questions but at least it was interesting enough to make you ask what's will happen next, what's happening back at home, why are these people really here?
I wish there was more...
Absolutely, this audiobook was delightful, I could not put it down. Not only is it a great story on its own but the narrators really brought all the characters to life.
When Minnie helped with the miscarriage
Minnie, hands down
Dream of change
I did not love this story to be certain. The narrator was awesome but the story itself was too long and tiresome, our main character was much too much of a complainer. I understand that this irony is not loss in the story in whole and is to add to the final humor but it was a story I did not enjoy.
Tell the Wolves I'm Home was very interesting and an easy listen but, I'm undecided on if I would listen to it again. The narrators voice seemed very electronic and flat at times which really threw me off at times. Perhaps I would read the book though.
I could not compare this story with any other that I have read personally.
Yes, when it came to the characters Amy Rubinate performed awesomely at making each character his or her own. However the generic narration would be a bit flat and monotone at times, it sounded like a operator recording.
Love Against All Odds
Selma Blair's performance made it feel like Anne was talking right to me. This audio book was transformed into a friend telling of her trials and a friend listening intently. This is story is amazing on its own but the performance set it apart.
Anne is a real teen girl and I felt like if I had been in her situation... Well I don't know. It's a tragedy that Anne had to experience these hardships and that in the end she suffered even more but I appreciate that the story is real and raw. I am thankful for Anne who spent all that time writing in her journal and sharing her story.
The part where Anne talks about making a difference long after she is gone... I cried, like a baby!
See the comment above, yes absolutely!
Anne transforms through out her time in the Secret annex and that makes her more likable as her story develops. I hate for her that she wasn't able to enjoy her youth but I am greatful that she shared her story with us and that would make her happy if she knew, all the lives she had touched through writing in her journal.
The story a lone was awesome but our famous narrator made it outstanding! Before reading this, I had only ever had the movie version. The book is so much better! It is hard to pick out a part that I loved best so many things come to mind... But if I have to pick one... Oh I just can't... Every aspect of this story is awesome. I was able to recapture something awesome from my youth and listen around my daughter without the worry of her hearing something inappropriate. Plus the characters and how Anne brought them each their own voice gave the story a new and unexpected dimension.
I feel like this story stands alone as it should. It is unique and that makes it wonderful... Anything that may compare in the future is just a copy cat.
No I have not listened to Anne before but I was very pleased with her performance and would listen again.
I may have laughed on a few occasions but I don't recall any tears.
Awesome awesome awesome!
None and yet so many at the same time. Chris Colfer really wrote a great adventure and made it his own. While this story recalls many of the fairy tale classics, Colfer keeps the integrity of each character without commercializing them. But they aren't who the story is about anyway. Alex and Connor Bailey are awesome and lovable and new characters who are a fresh breath of air.
What? I have to pick just one? That's not going to happen! I caught myself a few times wondering how in the world he gave each characters voice such a different range, I had no problem telling which character was from the other.
If I could have I would have! But I just didn't have that much free time in one sitting. But I did finish it in a week and a half.
Thank you Chirs Colfer! After listening to The Land of Stories, the wishing spell and finding out soon after that he had already had The Enchantress Returns in the works, I was so delighted! I hope he isn't done with Alex and Connor Bailey just yet, please don't be! I have more to say but can't without spoiling something awesome for those who haven't read yet.
Well... I must say I haven't read the print version to say. But I can say this the narrator made this story come to life. He performed each character excellently and gave them wonderful individual voices. The many pieces where he had to sing, although not my favorite parts... He sold me on it every time!
The emotion and almost physical battle against Gollom stands out to me the most. But there were so many moments. But the reason why that particular moment stands out to me is because I love the riddle game the two play.

But of course! We are talking about the writings of Tolkien. There were several and it would be hard for me to select one.
I really appreciated the multiple narrators and loved that this story takes on Jacob's point of view. I particularly like the part where Jacob (without giving too much away) has his personal climax and that's all I can say without ruining a key part of this story.
Matt was perfect as Jacob... Absolutely perfect! IIyana had a great range of voices for each character and I look forward to hearing her again.
There are many moving moments, a lot happens in this book for our three main characters and honestly when the boom ended... I wasn't ready to leave them just yet. The end when Bella masters her powers and is able to surprise Edward once again is just the absolute sweetest thing!
