This book was a random pick based on reading a few reviews and an interesting summary. We listened to it on a long car trip and the child would not lets us stop playing it.
The alternate universe worked quite well and didn't feel forced. You smiled knowingly to yourself when you picked up the historical and scientific divergences that made our earth different from theirs.
Truthfully, by the end of the book I thought to myself: "That's quite a good introduction. If he works off this material for the second book it could be even better." That's not to say this book isn't wonderful, but that it made me excited for even more.
The Bartimaeus Trilogy.
His ability to do voices was much appreciated. His regular talking voice was enjoyable and he read at a good pace. The "formal" chapter heading sections were just diagrams and he even brought those to life.
Very much so. We listened to it 5 hours at a time. Part 1 on the way to our destination and part 2 on the way back.
No. I simply couldn't listen to it and purchased the book for Kindle.
If one voice does 12 books, just wait for him to have time to do the 13th.
