The book and the narrator did a good job. It is a young readers book but it was a good escape for me to listen to on my way to and from work. The series is comfortable and I will listen to one in between heavier listening books.
Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
The Ranger's Apprentice series, both the story and narration, are among my favorites of the books I have listened to with my children. And this is one of our favorites in the series.
The reunion of the main characters.
All of the scenes with Halt are wonderful. He is a funny character and his relationships with the younger characters are perfect.
I'm always looking for books that are suitable to listen to with my 11 year old son (and sometimes his older brother) that I can tolerate or even enjoy. This series is just amazing in that regard. I have enjoyed the storyline, the characters, and the narrator as much as my son. For both of us, these books are our favorites to put on. I'll be sad when the series is over.
A Book Addict who found she could clean house and get her book fix with audio books.
John Flannagan puts together a wonderful world of adventure with characters you care about and challenges that require unique strengths. Similar to Harry Potter only in that you get to watch the heros and heroines grow from children into adults to be proud of. I reccommend it for anyone.
Love this series and have read it through several times. My biggest contention with the audio book performance is the inconsistency in the voices of Will and Horace. Sometimes and seemingly at random, their voices jump from shrill to adolescent breaking and in the case of Horace there were instances in which he sounded years older than Will by virtue of how deep his voice could drop.
This is an awesome book I loved the story line and Erak all of a sudden turning good I just which Alyss was in it this would have made the story more enjoyable for me.
