Good coming of age story with a twist. I love new takes on old legends and myths. It started off by not revealing too much in the beginning, which made you feel a bit like Meghan, let you stew for a while until problems were resolved in a natural manner. The story had a nice flow, likable, believable characters. I like that it wasn't verbose but would have liked to see a little more character development. I enjoyed the narrator, she had believable accents and a pleasant voice. I look forward to listening to the next book.
Anne McCaffery is undoubtedly one of the best writers of sci fi/fantasy that has ever lived. She gives her characters such depth that you feel that you know them as a real person. She can conjure up such strong feelings that you can rejoice as well as weep for and with them. It's amazing how she can weave a story from so many perspectives without losing any integrity in the process. Her stories are the standard to which most of my book choices are based on.
all of her books are a must read in this one is no exception. Thanks to the outpouring of fans she has brought back, Robinton , the Master Harper of Pern. This story invokes tears of joy, sadness and pain, as well as cheers of triumph. The narrator does a fair job I'm not a big fan of his female voices but it doesn't detract much from the story.
Great idea with a lot of potential, then it was over. I also prefer happy endings.
interesting, I like post apocalyptic stuff and although it teetered between a more realistic view and a sickening sweet big happy family feel. I kept waiting for a climax but wasn't satisfied. I never did find out what really happened and didn't get the Impression that I ever will.
It started slow and didn't grab my interest. I like the undercurrent of loyalty and friendship but I didn't like the rebellion, even if it was done to support the loyalty factor. It seemed to be written maybe for about the 10 year old range but had a little teenage content. The problem that I have with that is that I don't think we need to be pushing dating and relationships on our young people or to run off to Florida because their life isn't going the way they like. As the story developed I liked how barriers of prejudice (fairies hating humans) were being breached. All in all tho, I didn't find this story very good.
The narration was fine, nothing stood out to me which can be a good thing. It felt natural and easy to listen to.
Story was good, a tad bit, too predictable in some spots and totally unexpected in others. Kiernan sometimes acts a bit too immature and Meghan still needs more character depth. Wish is just the right amount of childish wonder and enthusiasm. It was interesting to find out more of his history and why he is the way he is. There was a good cliff hanger, I look forward to reading book 3.
Meghan Lewis, the narrator, did a great job of reading the characters so you always knew who was speaking with out needing to make exaggerating changes. There was one character who got on my nerves though, he spoke in a slow bored tone, which fit his character perfect, but he was still annoying!
I knew it was a short story and hoped I would like it. Wasn't prepared for it to end though. I liked the twist, and I can often anticipate plots and themes and this one got me, I love that. The narrator did a great job portraying kids, I could easily believe the annoyance and petulance of Julie. I hope there are more Ravenhill Court.
If I wouldnt have been assaulted by "F" words. I had two in probably the first few paragraphs.
No "F" words.
I wish I could say, but barely got to hear. I look forward giving her a try in another book.
Warning labels four obscene amounts of bad language.
Yes, I got an Audible.com account just to get all my Anne McCaffrey books.
Its so hard to pick, but I would say in this particular book, Robinton.
Oh, I dont usually sit still while I am listening unless I am in the car. Listening helps me get things done and makes boring household duties worth doing.
