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 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.
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.
I enjoyed the personality of Number One
The reactivation of the elder demons
The underdog demon (Number One) turning out to be the greatest demon ever. Also, this book gives you a different perception of the Irish demons.
Different, funny, complex
The softer side of Artemis that professed his true feeling for Holly. I laughed outloud.
Artemis' alter ego expressing his true feeling for Holly and her reactions.
Artemis - just another teen.
There is little difference since I listen to the unabridged versions. The benefit is the voices provided by Nathaniel. I don't have to provide them,
It's a time travel book. It was a little confusing going back and forth.
Nathaniel brings the voices of the characters. His voices help me keep track of who's speaking so I don't have to think about it. It. like listening to a movie. A good narrator is very important. Nathaniel does a good job.
