Publisher's Summary

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.

100 Cupboards is the first book of a new fantasy adventure, written in the best world-hopping tradition and reinvented in N. D. Wilson's inimitable style.

    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!

    "Delightfully Inventive"

    From the first time I read 100 Cupboards, I loved it. ND Wilson weaves part fantasy and part reality to create this enchanting tale. Once you begin listening or reading, you won't be able to stop!

    "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
    "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.

    Story
    "Fantasy as it should be"

    N.D. Wilson follows in the tradition of C.S Lewis. This story had excellent driving mysteries and highly like able characters. The writing style is vivid and energetic. It is the kind of fantasy literature that leaves you with a greater appreciation for reality.

    The performance is excellent, and musical transitions are well deployed.

    There are some scary scenes. My seven year old enjoyed listening to select (non-scary) parts of the story, but my guess is that she won't be ready for the full story for a few years yet. I definitely recommend this to adults who are looking for an good story and want to avoid the escapism (especially sexual escapism and preoccupation) common in adult fantasy.

    "100 Cupboards"

    The story was really good. I wish we would have paid a bit better attention to it. We usually listen in the car so we didn't just sit and listen all the way through. It is the kind of book that you would open and read all the way through.
