The development of each character and the adding of a strong female character really excited me. John Flanagan lets you grow with his characters and as they develop you do too. Great emotional connection.
The development of voices really adds to each characters persona. Keating really does an excellent job of character development.
A good read for all ages, very thrilling and moving with great narration.
this was serious work to finish
In its audible form, with this narrator not on your life. but as a stand alone work to read sure.
the narrator is just bad! From mispronunciations to just bland terrible cadence that puts you to sleep the only time it is redeemed is if there is a dialogue then you can stay awake because you are so irritated about bad accents, and just WRONG pronunciations.
I am very sorry for the author because the editor did him a serious disservice by publishing this book under this narration. It was just so hard to get past it to the actual book. I think that the plot was imaginative and would have been captivating if I had been able to read it. In fact the fact that I did continue to push on to the end is a good test of the fact that its a good plot with good characters and would be a good read. I really wanted to stop sooooooo many times!!!!! I will get the other books from the library or ebook. I think this book and series will go far. I do think that the attempts at sexual intimacy were very forced and just put in for maybe the teen sale value????? they could easily be left out and not hurt the book at all. It's a great book without being embarrassed that the author is trying to force this in. I think it would raise it a large notch without it.
