I'm an avid reader of fantasy and "magic books", and have enjoyed the Charlie Bone series. This one, however, isn't written nearly as well as the others - the plot is hard to figure out and wanders, and too much of the dialogue is pointless. Still, I'll eagerly await the next one and hope for the best!
I have listened to all of the books now with my 8 year old. This one seems to have been a little harder to follow. There were times that I felt like I had missed something altogether, but in the end understood most of it.
Definately a must listen.
The reader was excellent.
Harry Potter because its is also about the adventures of children with magical powers at school.
His voices for the different characters were varied and well done.
Its just a fun read.
This is one of the best in the series. It ties up some loose ends, and Charlie and his friends are involved in some real heroics. Several interesting new characters. My sons were sorry it ended and are impatiently waiting for the next installment!
I have been reading this series since book one. And find it be very adventurous. And am engroused with every new book to the series. Each Charcter is just so enjoyable. Even some of it's villians. And even though I love Harry Potter. This collection of books gives it a run for it's money. But what I enjoy is that it doesn't have some of the really heavy moments of Harry Potter. And so far none of the charcters I have grown to love and have yet to meet their untimely end. Which I like sometimes it's good when few of the good guys are killed off. And it's a hasn't any of it's excitement.
So if you never read the series give it ago. You will be emeroused in the world of Charlie Bone
This book is a really amazing book! I would recomend this book to kids that like a adventure. I really like Magic books and this has magic in it and I would also recomend it to Fantasy readers!
