"Jenny Nimmo...has a brilliant sense of storytelling and a well-tuned ear for good writing. Shakespearean actor Simon Russell Beale adds wonder to this book with his rich baritone reading." (AudioFile)
Henry gets into so much trouble since he is impulsive. It's all anyone can do to keep saving Henry from all the trouble he gets into. He is a sweet boy but he needs lots of supervision.
The 1st book was a fun kids book, but this one seems like it got rushed to the printer. The "cousin" of Charlie is frankly too dumb to live. Characters that were fairly fleshed out in the last book at times did things that were out of character, and several leaps were made to conclusions for no apparent reason.
Great narrator. So-so book.
I love this series, it's has a very comfortable style and the narrator is excellent. Its almost like watching a movie withe the various voices he has at his be beckoning call. I highly reccomend this book for adults and children.
The adventures of Charlie Bone continue. I had so fun and enjoyment listening to the excellent reading of this book. I can't wait to order the next Charlie Bone adventure.
I am really enjoying listening to this series, and I would highly recommend it for both children and adults. I tried it out because I was a big Harry Potter fan, and while I agree that the idea was probably taken from the Potter series, the characters are there own and quite enjoyable. I'm looking forward to continuing with this series as Charlie finds out who he is and what talents he possesses. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed!!!
The Time Twister is my favorite of the Charlie Bone books. I love them all. This book had a great impact on me. So much of coming of age in Hollywood is about loss of innocence. This story says to me that innocence has great beauty and power. The Harry Potter books get me through until the next Charlie Bone book is released.
My son, who is 9 years old, Loves to listen to Charlie Bone on audio. I have to admit that after listening to the first one, I was anxious to hear the second. It was great! I can't wait to listen to the next Charlie Bone book!
