    Story
    "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

    Story
    "Deserved a professional narrator."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes; but better in print.


    What did you like best about this story?

    SUCH a clever story; it was wonderful to take a trip into FairyTale land (Land of Stories)!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Colfer?

    Someone who knows, for instance that the word "FRUSTRATION" has 2 r's. Someone who knows that, when a person has an accent, say, a British accent, he or she has it all the time, and for all words, sentences, and paragraphs of speech he or she utters. Someone who would've known to inject Alex, the main character, with some (or, a) personality.


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful book, seriously marred by yet another author imagining that she must certainly be the best person to read the story she has written. Too bad.

    Story
    "The 10th Kingdom retold."

    if you ever saw the 4 episode miniseries 10th Kingdom....you've already experienced this book.
    put that in a blender with the 1st season of ABC's 'once upon a time' tv plot for the evil queen.
    THAT is this story.

    Story
    "Sometimes the author should NOT narrate"

    This is a cute story - good premise- listened with my daughter. And I had to consciously block out the narrator the WHOLE time. You can almost see the book in front of him as he reads it. I never got a chance to lose myself in the story . I didn't expect this to be fantastic, just diverting- and I was still disappointed. Oh- and so was my 7 year old. :-(
