    "easy listening"

    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.

    Story
    "One of the Better Ranger's Apprentice books"
    Where does The Battle for Skandia rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Battle for Skandia?

    The reunion of the main characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of the scenes with Halt are wonderful. He is a funny character and his relationships with the younger characters are perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Great Youth Read"

    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.

    "Great continuation!"

    I love this series and its nice to have another great installment. Two things, there were some repeated phrases throughout the story and it irritated me a bit. There were also some plot holes if you looked into it. I'd say otherwise it was pretty good

    What made the experience of listening to The Battle for Skandia the most enjoyable?

    Have to say it was the reader
    he sounded more normal then the previous book


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed them all


    What does John Keating bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The emotion in his voice
    You feel like you are there
    Seriously:)


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

    We listen to our books in the car on road trips or when we are trying to get our soon to be 2 year old too sleep. They help her sleep along with the motion from the car:)


    Any additional comments?

    Need to come out with another Great book:)
