    Any additional comments?


    The year is 2074 and technological advancements have led to the creation of the most advanced secondary school in the world. Imagine viewing history in real-time with revolving viewpoints, where you control every aspect and are able to watch the most important events unfold in front of you. Imagine a virtual system that allows you to become an avatar and experience the world as an animal. All things are possible at Cragbridge Hall…
    Enter the grandchildren of the school’s founder and inventor of these wondrous technologies and this sets an adolescent struggle to prove you belong. But it doesn’t take long before this desire to measure up against one’s peers turns into an adventure in which failure is not an option and failure to measure up could have catastrophic results.
    Very entertaining it’s ability to weave history into the adventure and overall a great fun listen for all those young at heart!!! Highly recommend!

    It does not have the extensive content of Game of Thrones or Harry Potter, but it is a good easy listening, light read.

    Story
    "A Sci Fi Harry Potter ?"
    If you could sum up Cragbridge Hall, Book 1 in three words, what would they be?

    Light, historical & entertaining


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cragbridge Hall, Book 1?

    When a character is mauled by a bear in what proves to be a very realistic simulator.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The characters experience with 'driving' the avatar, while climbing into the watchtower.


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

    Almost managed it, an afternoon and the following morning while in the workshop. I actually used this book as a successful sorbet to remove the experience of a less well written and performed novel.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll definitely be following the characters in the sequel.

    "Great young adult novel for adults too"

    This was a great novel meant for young adults or younger. Not as rich or intense as Harry Potter but an enjoyable read. I am an adult and would defiantly listen to others in the series.
