Ok, so my 12 year old daughter loves this as well....but girls usually love books....boys - not so much. My 8 year old and 10 year old boys have listened to 1 1/2 hours in one day and are mad that they can not finish it today. I have a surround sound with ILink, which lets me use an auxillary cord and listen to this over our speakers in the living room. The narator is perfect for this book, he reads this book the exact way I would imagine it should be read. My kids and I will be getting all the sequels to this book and many more by Gary Paulsen. Great read aloud to keep little boys interested. (there is also a study guide you can get to go with this book on Amazon, since we homeschool, we decided to use this as a part of our curriculum, it is a great help!)
Very well written book, with great historical people and information used. There was lots of simplified scientific talk, so that the average Joe could understand ...but not so dumbed down that it was boring. There were many interesting characters used, from missionaries to David Blaine, and enough humor to keep me entertained. I have listened to this book twice and it has opened my eyes to understand why we do some of the silly things we do...especially if we are hungry ...or as we say in my house "hangry". Definitely recommend this book, it will help anyone understand Willpower and how to strengthen it.
This book was very informative and well written. The narrator does well, he is easy to listen too. There is so much great information in this, I may have to listen again. Even my children like to listen to it. It has opened their eyes to how "bodies " speak to us and it has helped us all understand ourselves and others better. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking to better understand people and why we do some of the strange things we do!
I have always heard about the famous sermon preached by Johnathan Edwards, and it was just as intense and well spoken as I imagined it would be, although it is rather difficult to hear a sermon or speech just READ instead of spoken. It would have been nice to hear it read with the kind of passion it was meant to be spoken with. Overall, the narrator did fine, it is just a difficult kind of 'book' to read out loud.
I have read this book years ago, and really enjoyed listening to it with my husband on our long road trips. The narrator was perfect for this book, and made the listen even better. This is a great fictional story about Florida history, with real events and places we all know woven in. Once again, this is an all time favorite...so glad to find it on audible!
