"A great adventure"
Frozen in Time is brilliant. It's like an Enid Blyton Famous Five story, only with 3 of the 5 having been catapulted into the modern world from the 1950s after being released from a cryogenic chamber buried in the garden. Twenty-first century Ben and Rachel get to meet their Great Aunt and Uncle (and their dog) and they all find themselves thrown into an adventure. There is a genuinely suspenseful plot and there are plenty of laughs and thought-provoking moments when 1950s Freddy and Polly are learning about the modern world. A really clever and enjoyable story for all ages.
Reminded me of the kind of stories I read as a kid - totally fantastic book, brilliantly narrated.
"Entertaining childrens book"
Resolves well - works at different levels; well worth the listen, the kids enjoyed it on a long car journey.
"Fantastic adventure for children and adults"
I would definitely recommend this book. All three of my children have listened to it (ages 10,12 and 13) and so have I.
It is a great adventure and totally believable even if it is far fetched.
He brings this book to life
"absolutely super! !!!"
As an adult I fancied listening to something different from the normal grown up heavy stuff. This was perfect for me to listen to whilst running and dog walking. A very engaging storyline with characters one could warm to. loved the 50s references and how the characters impacted on one another. I have bought some more ali sparkes books and am looking forward to my next run!
I love it and it was the best way to get the day over. It was jolly well super
"Great concept, good story"
It's a bit like a famous five adventure story, I felt it was a bit slow to start but it kept me wanting to listen to more. Great concept and exciting story, well worth a listen!
I really enjoyed this book. It was refreshing to listen to a book that took me back to my youth. Listening to something better than the world and books of today. Really worth a listen the narrator really had me hooked. Doing all the different voices for the characters
