    Story
    "Good but can be tough to follow"
    What made the experience of listening to Curse of the Spider King the most enjoyable?

    My 10 year old son and I liked the character development and the suspense of what was happening next.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were very likeable. We became involved in what was happening to them.


    Did Greg Whalen do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not as much change of inflection as we would have liked. There was some inconsistency and then no differentiation sometimes.


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

    No, we listen together on our way to and from sports events and errands.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is sometimes hard to follow because there are so many characters. Eventually the lines start coming together.
    We liked that because this is a youth book, there were no cuss words or sexy scenes. There is violence and difficult situations but it's appropriate for older kids/tweens.
    This is one I would probably not listen to by myself but it really works for my son and me together. Not too adult for him but not too childish for me.
    We will definitely be listening to the second book.

    "Wonderfully Entertaining!"

    Wow, this book is an exciting read. It kept me interested from start to finish. The seven heros are extremely likable and easy to cheer for. I can't wait to read the next one!

    "Amazing book"

    The book weaves in a combination of fantasy and almost superhero like characters into an intriguing tale with characters traversing two separate worlds and trying to save a world that is their own, but they didn't even know existed until the main characters came of age. The reader is great!
