    "Authors that read their own books for audio"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I did like this book the story is fun. I like the adventure


    What didn’t you like about Chris Colfer’s performance?

    Sometimes she reads way to fast, her words get mumbled, and you can't understand her. Her accents and voices changed or stayed the same for some characters so sometimes it got confusing as to who was saying what until a name was mentioned.


    Any additional comments?

    Ok fyi- possible spoilers here- really is a good read. I am a little confused as to whether or not this is young adult or children's book material. I didn't mind it talking about someone being pregnant, but then you have scantily clad pics of certain characters...which is just, odd, all in itself. But worth a listen.

    "Some of the Most Annoying Characters Ever"

    Didn't even finish this book it was so bad. The characters are full of pre-teen angst and drama. Nothing redeeming about them and certainly nothing I would ever consider introducing to my children.

    Whoever was doing the reading was fantastic but she didn't have much to work with as far as redeeming material.

    "Great first effort"

    A very enjoyable first novel from newcomer Chris Colfer. Has a heavy Chronicles of Narnia influence but it shines most with its sense of humor. Great performance also, though the narrator seems to have a bit of trouble with male voices.
    A lot of fun.

    "Sci-fi lite"
    Any additional comments?

    I purchased this book on special, I did not realize that it was rated for 10 yr olds.

    But I liked it! it was a bit predictable, but I enjoyed hearing about the original fairy tales and would listen when my hands were otherwise occupied.
    you couldn't really get to lost if your mind wandered a bit.

    this was scifi/fantasy lite
