100 Cupboards

Twelve-year-old Henry York wakes up one night to find bits of plaster in his hair. Two knobs have broken through the wall above his bed and one of them is slowly turning. Henry scrapes the plaster off the wall and discovers cupboards of all different sizes and shapes. Through one he can hear the sound of falling rain. Through another he sees a glowing room with a man pacing back and forth! Henry soon understands that these are not just cupboards, but portals to other worlds.

    "This one's a keeper!"

    Excellent job on the narration, very well read.
    I was hooked from the start. I love the author's descriptive style; it is very visual.
    Good story, great character. The ending was a bit weak? or maybe (having by then went and bought the book) I was reading too fast. Besides, obviously a sequel coming here. Maybe I thought the ending weak because it is not the end... Overall, don't miss this one.

    Story
    "I wish Frank were my Father!"
    What made the experience of listening to 100 Cupboards the most enjoyable?

    The narrator does an incredible job delineating between the different characters: bratty younger sister, headstrong middle sister and poor Henry, thrown quite unexpectedly into the mix but Frank, well, Mr. Wilson gives Frank such innate wisdom in being a father and quite a few memorable quotes. I laughed out loud at the children's squabbles and my heart sighed whenever Frank dispensed his fatherly wisdom.
    What a great book for children AND adults!

    Story
    "Well written but I didn't love the story"
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The theme was inventive.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I found the story a little tedious, so I didn't have a favorite.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The theme was inventive but I think my review of the first book was shaded by having read the others as well. The story decline with successive books. The children drove me crazy for their poor decisions.

    "So good you'll forget you are driving!"
    Where does 100 Cupboards rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best books we have gotten. My 14 and 11 year olds and I listened to it on a long trip and wen we got home we wanted to keep driving! We aren't finished with it yet, but it has been great!

    Story
    "Great story and narrator!"
    Would you listen to 100 Cupboards again? Why?

    Yes! It has appealed to my boys sense of adventure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is very reminiscent of C.S. Lewis' The Magicians Nephew which is a pleasant surprise. It opened up the problem of what happens when evil is unleashed into a world even for the best of reasons.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scene where when someone is in the cupboard they can see a ballroom full of people and the explanation is that the wood remembers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Adventure awaits


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely one to be relistened to over and over to glean the nuances missed during the first run through.

    "Great Book"

    Thoroughly enjoyable! The best fantasy fiction I have heard since C.S. Lewis and Tolkien. Very well read too!

    "good stuff"

    couldn't quit this one. I can't wait for the sequel, which, considering the ending, is probably coming.
