"Kept me turning the pages until 4:40 in the morning . . . deep, intriguing, magical . . . one of the most enjoyable fantasies I've read." (Christopher Paolini, best-selling author of Eragon)
"[Mull's] story offers unexpected twists and entertainingly scary creatures," (The New York Times)
We use this book on a drive with our children. After a 13 Hour Drive the boys were asking, can we drive a little longer to finish the book. What else can I say it was awesome.
This story is good for younger audiences, but even as adults it held our interest. A lot of suspense - even though very "make believe".
Narrator was good with all the different voices, but "The Beyonders" narrator was somewhat better. Suspense was good from chapter to chapter - sometimes hard to stop listening.
spoiler alert I totally wasn't guessing the direction book 4 took.
I like the authors Recaps of the prior books while keeping the action still going. it always drives me crazy when other authors used 50 pages to retail everything in the prior stories. there was a lot of twists and turns easy reading and listening. it definitely keeps you grabbing onto your seat until the very end. onto book 5
Brandon Mull is a master of entertainment. Perfect for the whole family. The narrator was amazing as well. With a different voice for every character and a real talent for acting out the moment, we were all captivated.
The narrator grew on me. At the beginning of book 1 I wondered if his voice would detract, but after listening for a while, I grew to enjoy his performance (his fairy voice still cracks me up).
The story is fun. It is not complicated or unpredictable, but it is very enjoyable! I feel the characters were true to themselves...what I mean by that is that they do not change their nature to miraculously make the only decision possible for victory. They make childish mistakes which sometimes turn out well, and sometimes poorly. The books are not overly involved (I am not the target audience at 25 years old) or complicated, but I enjoyed them despite that.
