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.
I haven't read the print version but this is a great book on audio. Fairy tale fantasy type stories seem to translate really well to the audio format.
The fresh take on fairy tale stories we all know. Enjoyable for all ages.
My 11 year old and I listened to his first book as well (the prior book in this series). They were very similar so if you liked the last one, you will likely enjoy this as well.
There were several funny moments.
Colder isn't my favorite narrator which surprised me since he's an actor. He has a flat quality to his voice which I didn't really like. I preferred other narrators in this genre like Bronson Pinchot and Johnny Heller.
That said, my 11 year old liked the narration. He also found the story engrossing.
Best Series ever! Both my 13yr old, 9yr old and nieces etc... love this series! heard that the movie is coming out in summer of 2017. Great job Chris- super talented author and narrator! Recommended for boys and girls of all ages!
Conner- because he is cool, funny nice and he has the power to travel into different worlds!
My 9 yr old read book 1 and 2 and listen to 3 and 4 on audible. He said it made the characters some to lose, so he re-listened to book 1 and 2 on audible to get more out of the series. Their dying to hear another!
Love love love
The best word to describe it. I loved this book. The narrator was great, and the story was the bomb. The twins are as lovable as ever. Alex is the smart, well balanced one, while Conner is a lot more like a modern teenager. Though a bit sarcastic at times, I loved this book and would very much recommend it, for anyone.
