    "A Wonderful Ghost Story for the whole family"

    I really enjoyed listening to this ghost story on audiobook. It is a fairly quick one at 2 hours: but perfect for the whole family on a car trip or stormy afternoon. Loved all the characters, ghosts, and history of the area made this story quite interesting and fun to listen to.
    Absolutely love the narrator, J. Scott Bennett and I look for books he narrates before I will select any by another narrator. He just has the perfect voice for audio and has no difficulties with accents or male/female voices.

    "Young adult ghost stories at their best"

    How do you go wrong with a combination like this. J Scott Bennett does creepy like no other narrator I've heard. I love his horror and suspense stories he reads. The story has a young man with developing ghost powers and his friends. Add in magic, ghost pirates, ghost allies, ghost prisons, ghost keys, storm beasts and more. Great story with a great narrator.

    I love J. Scott Bennett his voice for each character is flawless and he gives the story more of a flare. I enjoyed the story although I think it has a lot to grasp. I am interested in the rest of the series though to bring everything together.

    "An enjoyable pirate and ghost themed story"

    This was an enjoyable, family friendly, pirate and ghosts themed short story. This is mainly targeted towards kids, but I really enjoyed listening to it myself. The author did a great job building a creative world and mixing real historical figures with fiction. The author ended up creating an interested and original story that is great for people of all ages. The narrator did an amazing job with this book, switching between several different accents and a ton of different characters, and I especially enjoyed his pirate accent. I listened to this book just before Halloween and it was a perfect fit for the occasion. This book is definitely worth a listen and I look forward to listening to more books in the series.

    "Great characters, perfect for the whole family"

    I really enjoyed this book. I wish I had listened with my kids because I know they would have liked it. I'll have to replay it on a car trip when the whole family can listen. This book has really interesting characters: And orphaned boy and his dog, a Gullah root doctor (Gullah cultures really interests me), and a ghost boy. I loved the riddles presented in the book. This was really a unique and fascinating ghost story, totally family-friendly, and engaging for all ages. I listened to the Audible audio version narrated by J. Scott Bennett, and as always, his narration was great. I love the unique voices he gives to each character, his pacing, and how he connects to his audience.

    Story
    "Pirates, ghosts, and magic!"

    ghosts, gullah, action-adventure, 19th-century, middle-grades, series, historical-figures, historical-places-events

    Excellent beginning to a series. Ghosts of people familiar in US history are presented in this tale of what magic is common lore along the Carolina coast. An orphaned boy of mixed heritage and lousy self image escapes his tormentors and his friend dog and a friend girl who knows things get together with the Gullah root doctor to battle ghosts of pirates and more. Full of action and adventure with a few painless American history lessons. It might be aimed at kids, but I loved it.
    I was, however, thankful that I had an audio copy, as I would have obsessed over pronunciation of some of the names.
    J. Scott Bennett gives an excellent performance as narrator.
    I requested and received this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Tongue in Cheek, I Ain't Afraid of No Ghosts"
    If you could sum up The Ghost Isle in three words, what would they be?

    Just intimefor Halloween... three words. This is part Charleston, SC historic past, part Native Lore, part Jim Morrison visualization style. With Crazy Horse, George Washington, Pirates and ... ghosts... Its a HOOT!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This works best when taken as the interaction of the characters and the visual description. Squojo, the main character, Sheets, the dog, and the historic walkon parts are favorites.


    Which character – as performed by J. Scott Bennett – was your favorite?

    J. Scott Bennett was kept busy with this story, with lots of characterizations. He was up to the task and did a fine job, as usual.


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

    At just about two hours, I listened in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm interested in the follow up books still to come!

    Thanks for the opportunity to review "The Ghost Isle"! Enjoyable.
