spellbinding, charming adventure
Kendra, she gives you an entry into this magical world and other than a generation of difference in age is the character I am the most like in temperament. I am hoping that in the following books we get to know the supporting cast better.
Yes, I think it took us about 3 sittings, but I found myself waiting until we had an opportunity to keep listening. Once we were fully introduced to the world of Fablehaven we did not want to stop listening. Once the adventures really got intense we really, really did not want to stop.
EB Stevens character voices are good, but he reads like he is talking down to his audience. I found it a bit annoying as a parent listening, but my kids were offended, feeling as if he was being patronizing.
Yes, it was one of the first Neil Gaiman books I ever read, and plunged me headlong into a love of his writings. Neil Gaiman has the gift of creating implausible worlds that feel completely real and no matter how dark a situation you find yourself wishing you could be a part of it. Neil Gaiman is a fabulous reader of his own material so I was hesitant to listen to another version, but this cast is superb and brings the story to a new level.
I don't think I cried, but I did laugh and there were several nail biting moments.
