    For centuries, mystical creatures of all description were gathered to a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic in a cynical world. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite... Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven.

    J. Gibbs says: "I am so excited this has FINALLY come to Audible."
    "Narration is AWFUL!!!!"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    If everything is (vocally) in italics, bold, caps, and underlined, nothing will stand out. Every sentence is uttered with breathless surprise and awe by this reader, and it's excrutiating to listen to. I abandoned the audio book in chapter 3 and just read the book. So horribly bad.


    Would you be willing to try another one of E. B. Stevens’s performances?

    Absolutely not. I will be checking every audio book I buy in the future to ensure it's NOT E. B. Stevens.


    Was Fablehaven, Book 1 worth the listening time?

    The story, yes.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Hands-down the best audio book I've ever heard"
    Overall

    The story is good, and charming, and compelling, but what really made this book stand out was the "narration". I put quotes around narration because this was more acting than reading. It was absolutely amazing, and I was sad to hear it end. The only drawback is that I haven't found any other audiobooks that even come close.
