"Dufris is undaunted in his interpretation of the inhabitants of Eelong, giant cats whose disdain for humans is barely contained." (AudioFile)
Another stunning overacting performance by William dufris. It still ruins the story for me. This book is probably my second least favorite anyway. When I fist started listening to this series, I was hoping the performance would get better, but it hasn'tyet... here's hoping...
Hour-long commutes to-and-from work mean "reading" more (via Audible), and more genres than I would otherwise have tried.
This story is SOOOOO different from the past 4 books. It's a lot more grown up and action-packed than the previous books. I would completely recommend!
Bobby's adventures continue with his first visit to a non-human society, where humans are called Gars and are considered a lower life form. While he is dealing with the ultimate culture shock and trying to stay alive, Mark and Courtney find that in order to do what they feel is the right thing they have to break some rules. They find out the hard way that you don't get to choose the consequences when you break rules, and sometimes others pay for your choices.
This series is amazing, and fun. I especially love this book because I am a parent, and my kids love this series. When they get to this book there are so many life lessons that can be learned from these words. How often do we set out to do something good, for all the best reasons, and along the way make choices the end up haveing unexpected and unintended consequences? I love how real the characters are, and how true to themselves they stay. Mr. MacHale has created each of them with unique motivations and drives, and even thought the series covers a significant age range for all of them, they are believable and embracable.
Mr. Dufris' performance in these books is magical. He brings the story to life. It is not just someone reading words from a page. It is a tallented voice actor making each individual unique, identifiable, and exciting. Some reviewers have complained about his performance. I thoroughly disagree. His reading is part of what makes it so fun to listen to these stories over and over again.
Thank you both for hours and hours of uplifting family entertainment.
