    Story
    What did you love best about Firesong?

    The deep emotional feelings of the characters. It really touched me the way the author described what each person was thinking and why they took the decisions in different parts of the story. You don't forget the characters of this series, there is something from each one of them that is left in you as a learning.


    What does Samuel West bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Samuel West does a spectacular reading. He brings life to each character and uses the pauses in the reading in a way that really invites reflection of what is happening in the story, that is why this story stays with you. The mixture of deep emotions, a wonderful story and a reader that really knows his job ends up being a life experience for the listener in the steps of the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, definitely. I heard it twice!


    Any additional comments?

    I urge Audible to incorporate the first book of this series in the webpage. Its name is The Wind Singer. It is really good and would complete the experience.
    But to the listener, don't mind that the first book is not available here. Start with the second named¨

    Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler team up again to create this funny and adorable sequel to The Gruffalo. One night, the Gruffalo's child wanders into the woods to search for the Big Bad Mouse. But instead, she comes upon a small mouse in the woods - and decides to eat him! But wait, what is that? A shadow of a very large, scary creature falls on the ground. Could it be the Big Bad Mouse after all?

    My 4-year old and I love this book. It's so witty and enternaining. It is best enjoyed if you also have "The Gruffalo" because you can best savour the author cleverness in the succesion of the story. The reading is super entertaining and catching, i see myself many times saying "Aha! Oho! Marks in the snow!" You will love it!

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Story

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    This story really resembles the daily routine of parents with young children. Worth the money, it entertains!
