    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.

    "Suspense in Ancient Egypt -- Fun and Eudcational"
    What did you love best about The Golden Goblet?

    My 10 year old reluctant reader son loved this book. I thought the narrator was great and I was happy to listen along. My son was disappointed it wasn't part of a series. The added plus was that it was educational and got him excited about Ancient Egypt.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Golden Goblet?

    There are many exciting moments -- enough that it was too absorbing to listen to at bedtime.


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

    Excellent narrator for both children and adults to listen to. There are unfamiliar names and places in the book, due to its setting in Ancient Egypt, and I could imagine my son being frustrated with that if he had to read it without benefit of the audio. As it was, the names were handled so naturally it wasn't a barrier.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was a very uplifting book by the end.

    Story
    "Egypt lovers, read this book!"

    I read this novel with my class every other year. It was the only one for which I did not have an audio version. With great gusto, I began to play this version to my class. It didn't take long to realize that the fantastic story line was being buried underneath the narrator's repetitive pattern of emphasis in each sentence, no matter the content. I ended up reading the story to them myself, as I have other years. The book is fantastic, just read it the old-fashioned way. Audible, I would love for you to record this one with a different narrator. Love the story.

    Would you listen to The Golden Goblet again? Why?

    Great listen, loved the story. Keeps your attention. Not sure who loved it more, son, 13, or me. Listened for a school project. He's relistening. I will, too, when I have more time.
