David Tennant is an excellent narrator. The voices and the sound effects he makes are cool and allow me to build images as he reads. The book itself is entertaining and funny.
Fishlegs is my favorite character because he is always saying what needs to be said.
They are all awesome!
Unexpected entertaining beautiful
The black cat named Ocean. She was there to make the worst days better.
His ability to change voices in mid sentence. Also, he reads at a good speed, some readers read to slowly, but Neil reads just about right.
The narrator. I can't remember if anyone ever used his name in the book, nick names and slang names. He was the 7 year old book nerd that I see often in my work with kids. They are very bright and have vivid imaginations from the reality they invent in their minds from the books they have read.
The Ocean at the end of the lane is an adult novel for adults who remember being kids, or are still kids. Its a fantasy of remembering the magical things that happen as a kid and some of the pain also. The birthday party no one comes to, the wonderful friends that you meet for a very short time before they disappear and the pets that make bad things better.
I think the book is just right. If you are expecting American Gods with super deep, detailed characters that are built up over hundreds of pages, this is not for you. Its a fun book about remembering, if only for a brief time, what life was like some time ago when you were a kid.
This book is equal to the other books in the Dragon series. They are all awesome and really fun to listen to, The narration is wonderful with great voices so you really can believe the whole cast is there. This was the 4th book in the series I listened to and have the other 4 on my ipod now waiting for the chance to escape into my head.
I Highly recommend this series to anyone young at heart.
This book is so well written that it is easy for the listener to imagine all the characters as if it were a long episode of the TV show. David Tennant reads it perfectly. I would not change a thing.
So far all of the books I have listened to narrated by David Tennant have been great.
I laughed and gasped at all the right places, that being said, the book was full of surprises.
