Yes, my son is the one listening to these and he loves the characters, the interaction and the accuracy to mythological legends.
It's actually a better read than Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series because it's better written and a much better set of performers on the audio version!
My son loved the interplay between the two characters and how they rounded out the idea of a brother-sister team without making the reading sound dry.
The reality is that I buy the audiobooks specifically so that my son who is dyslexic can stay well read and on his grade level despite his inability to read. He is almost twelve years old and these characters spoke to him. Frequently, audiobooks are read without inflection and without the reality that someone with language deficits needs in order to integrate language. These two readers hit all the high points, as well as covering a variety of accents.
Thousands of Years of Family Drama Comes to Life!
My son just enjoys the series and the way it curves through the girls stories and the boys stories without sounding like it's only girly or boy
