Yes, definitely! It's good for the whole family and has something for everyone. The main characters are kids so they are easy to relate to for kids, but they have fun voices that adults will enjoy as well. And the setting and adventure are just wonderful!
My favorite part of the story is the adventure. I would love to have been able to experience some of the things that Zoe and Zak are able to. Maybe some things are really scary and intense, but being able to go to school in India and learn about their culture and country would be so fun! But you add in the fantasy elements and it's even better! All I can say is- Flying Elephants!
I liked it all! She is brilliant at the different voices and manages to make each character sound different. She gets the accents perfect too!
It didn't make me cry, but I was on the edge of my seat sometimes. And I definitely laughed a time or two!
This is a fun fantasy adventure that has wonderful characters, setting, and fantasy elements. I would definitely listen or read it again. I think it would be perfect for a car trip with the whole family.
If I were to point out things that I liked less, it would be that sometimes I felt the plot moved along a little slowly in the beginning. I wasn't clear what was suppose to happen right away. But it is a shorter story, so I'm not sure it could have been different. And I did love when they talked about the school.
Narration wise, it stands near the top!
It's hard to say. I loved Annie, the main character, but several secondary characters stole my heart as well. Barrett and Captain Hawke are two of them.
I laughed several times! Annie really got up to some real antics! There was a point that definitely brought tears to my eyes as well though.
Very fun book and a brilliant narration! Highly recommend this one on audio.
I didn't read the print version, but since I don't read many spy thrillers I think I enjoyed it more as an audio then I would have reading it myself.
Well, the ending was since it was all so unexpected. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it.
I felt like his voice really fit the story and Michael and in my head, reading it, it wouldn't have been the same.
I'm not sure. Maybe toward the end when Michael found out some new information.
Yes! It was a fun adventure and I loved 'visiting' India.
Zak. He was the one willing to jump in with both feet and while at first that was annoying it became one of my favorite things about him. He rarely questioned things, he trusted in what he saw and felt.
Zoe because she's the one narrating the story anyway. I felt like the narration was spot on for Zoe's voice.
I loved when Zoe finally started finding her strength and started trusting in herself. Even if she had to do it alone, she was going to keep the promise she had made to protect the ghost leopard.
This was a fun ride with great fantasy elements, truly scary bad guys, great adventure, and an amazing setting. I very highly recommend to fans of middle grade fantasy!
