I know this series is for kids, but I totally enjoyed ALL the books in the series. Well thought out characters and plots. I felt like I was at Fable Haven myself!
A different author with a different narrator.
I didn't like and didn't get what the author was trying to covey. I was bored.
Not to sure I would listen again, though it did have an impact on me. The book was a nice surprise for me. I DID NOT see the movie and am anxiously waiting for the DVD release now that I have finished the book.
Narrator was good, but I have heard much better.
I like the underlying message of how corrupt adult minds think. As, adults we sometimes believe that children have nothing to teach us; after all we are wiser, we have more experience, right? This sends a very strong message that children should and need to be heard. I hate what they (adults) did to Ender. The manipulation and total disregard....it reminds me of some of the present BS....the end justifies the means....right?
I will let folks discover this on their own. What I will say is that it reminds me of our own human history. Stereotyping individuals out of fear and ignorance, rather than getting to know what people stand for and what is in their hearts. The characters are likeable and well developed. You care about them. That is a lot of humor within the tale as well. Always a plus!
Yes, and I have!
The characters' determination and specific strengths.
Love Conquers All.
She did a good job. She sounded like a Native American. She had presence.
I enjoyed the whole book. I am so glad to find a book on which ravens aren't a bad omen. I have Raven on my totem, so I have respect for this story.
I have been a fan of Marillier since Wildwood Dancing. I have listened to all the books in the series and loved each in it's own special way. I did find some predictability within the story and yet there were a few twists that surprised me. Not my favorite of the series, but I did like the unconditional love for animals and the unconditional love given in return. This author knows how to weave a tale!
Sharon Shinn. Especially the Twelve Houses series. Not the similar stlyle, but the ability to weave a good tale and develop characters that you have an emotional attachment to. I want to feel their love, pain, and bliss!
I would. However, for me she was just average. I have heard much better.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder....
This is one of my favorite books of all time. It came along at the right time in my life. It has humor, spirituality, and is down to earth. I love the characters, but more importantly I like the message of unconditional love the book conveys. I know this book is controversial in the area of Christianity....well, it IS fiction. I think Jesus would love the book and use it as a parable to send a clear message....of love!
Without spoiling, I like the section on judgement.
He was awesome. I could clearly picture the characters as his voices clearly exposed each personality.
Yes, but I didn't. I savored it.
I recommended this book to may friends and many have read/listened to the book. We all love it!
The book was good, but the narrator made it even better. I liked his use of differing voices and ascents.
Only in this series. I love his narration and missed him when he wasn't the narrator.
Not all the books in the series are as good. Still waiting for the last book to be released!
I am surprised I like the first 2 books in the series. I found myself staying up to find out what happens next. Good story, good plot, and likeable characters, although the main character is a little wishy-washy....choose already!
Yes. Usually not my type of book. I had it n my wish list for many months. I enjoyed the political construct of the book.
