Rick Riodan's final story is outstanding. Twists and turns and yet the prophecy is fulfilled. Very well written.
Rick does a great job filling in backgrounds and giving details even if you are a new listener.
Jesse doesn't do a good job differeniating between characters. Sometimes they all run together. He has some potential, but needs work.
I loved the story and really wanted to know how it ended. It was so good, I spent an evening at home listening to it. I usually do all my listening when I travel. I got started on this story and didn't want to stop.
I can't compare the two, I only have the audio version.
Eragon learning about his parents.
I've only heard Doyle's performances in the Eragon series, but I thought this book was his best performance ever!
All is fair in love and war.
I loved the growth and depth of the characters. The double, sometimes triple story line was well written and easy to follow. The number of characters is amazing
I came to appreciate Roain more in this story. He begins as a simple young man looking for a job and family, and becomes the leader of his community, making the difficult decisions that leaders have to. It's serves as a reminder of the difficult decisions all of us have to make.
Sopheria - her gruff female dragon voice has to be difficult and then to show playfulness, anger, concern, and shame - outstanding job!
I love the twist at the end of the story. I can't w a it to begin listening to Resingr.
The narration and writing make Eragon an outstanding listen. The details in the story show depth, insight, and planning.The narrator's voices are excellent (although it did take me awhile to adjust to such a masculine female Dragon voice!)
Eragon and Sopheria of course. Eragon is a wonderfully typical young man and Sopheria is a wise playful kitten.
His voice for all the different characters was excellent. Listening allows me to spend more time creating each scene in my head, with more detail, than just reading does.
An enchanting tale of dwarfs, dragons, elves and men.
I would listen to this story again - I would listen to the trilogy again. I've already started. I love the pictures of Ireland that they paint and it's folklore. I want to visit the places mentioned in the book. I want to sit in the new music hall and listen to the music.
The picture painted by the description of how the new Music Hall will blend with the old Tavern. It made me want to visit there.
I've only heard her in this series, but she did an excellent job.
Yes, I didnt want to stop listening, but if I don't stop listening when I'm driving, I run out of storoes to listen to. For the second read, I listened while I sewed! :)
Only have audio (I travel alot - drive) so really can't say. Although, I do enjoy listening to the characters.
The realness. I found myself laughing out loud occasion - which is pretty funny when you're listening in public.
The ghost looking for the boys. She honest sorrow and how the Mom realizes what's wrong.
southern ghost story
I was surprised by the wordiness of this book. It's not that she's giving too much detail, it's just wordy. I would not reccommend this book.
I would use more interaction between the characters instead of using so many words.
I different reader. Better separatation of the voices. Sometimes it's hard to tell which character is speaking. This male struggles with the main female character. Not good.
I love the intertwining of the relationships with the fates.
I love the Irish family. The personalities of the individual members were realistic of what real family relationships are.
This was the first time I've listening to Bernadette Quigley and I thought she did a wonderful job handling all the different characters. I always knew who was speaking.
I didn't listen to this in one sitting, but I did extend my listening by an hour twice. My audible account is my luxury because I travel for work and these books help pass the time.
Another hit for Nora Roberts - well done!
Since I listen to unabridged versions, I consider it the same - but the character voices are provided for me.
Holly and the Captain in the cave.
He does a nice job with all the character voices and portraying their feelings.
Holly's lose of her mentor.
exciting, surprising, unexpected
The Percy Jackson books, and the Artimis Fowl book are similar in the fact that they are both mystery books aimed at pre-teens. Both are great books that more students should read and great examples of written literacy.
He needs to work on differencing between the characters. Develop more voices. His reading is smooth - just not attention grabbing.
Not particularly, due to the reader, but the story line is good.
I am a great fan of the "in Death" books by J D Robb aka Nora Roberts. Since I am an avid reader/listener, I usually read/listen faster than they write. Another favorite author is James Patterson. I would rate this book right up there with those books.
See, the twists the turns, the control exhibited by the title character.
The title character. Julia needs to work on the leading man.
I cried at the relationship of the main character and her mother. I laughed at her reaction to his family.
