This was well performed, and quirky enough to remind me of the Brother Odd books, but the story is somewhat lazily written and repetitive, relying on shock value coarseness in lieu of depth. This story was not so bad that I quit half way through, but bad enough I won't recommend it.
Too much fun to miss! Characters self-anylize and turn the genre on its ear. You'll chukle throughout!
Sweet and affirming stories of loves of all sorts, from real people, in their own voices.
The sisters Grimm thought they were abandoned, maybe even orphaned... little did they know!
This is a series for the whole family. The second grader, the fifth grader, and the mom were all chomping at the bit for this 9th book in the series... we were not disappointed!
This was the best listen of the series! Great narration, good "color" without being a full cast "radioplay" type of production... a good balance!
I struggled through this monotonous dry narration just so I could get to the next stroy... and it was worth it because the next book is read very well... but if you can get a different edition or read it on paper I'd suggest doing so!
I am reading this for a book club so I'm finishing it despite the narration! Listening to this reminds me of talking with an autistic client I used to work for. I really wish I'd bought this on paper rather than in audio!
It's hard to explain that I liked the story DESPITE the telling, but that's how it is. I was interested enough to stick with it, but it dragged on and on with such dry reading!
The Robin Hood you thought you knew meshes tightly with this new version in a well researched tale of ancient Wales.
What? You thought Robin was English? Try again!
This book was a delight to listen to and the prologue was fascinating. The narrator did a great job fleshing out the characters with a variety of voices but did not resort to cartoonish sound effects, letting the text create the scenery for the listener instead.
An entirely enjoyable novel!
