    "Ugh. Terrible narration scars a great story!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    My children are crazy about Michael Vey! We have loved listening to the series on audible as we commuted to and from school. I find the stories enjoyable, as well, and this most recent installment was a much anticipated event for our carpool! However, this narrator is absolutely terrible! The first two books were fantastically performed and after getting used to a new voice, we even enjoyed book 3. This new narrator, though, is very hard to listen to. He has strange breaks in the way he reads - his voice goes up as if he is asking a question on each sentence. It gives a very 'Valley Girl' feel to all of the characters and makes his narration choppy and difficult to follow. And instead of somehow growing on you, as most narrators eventually seem to do, this one just gets more and more grating. I don't know what is involved in hiring a professional narrator, but this narrator on this book is *really* hurting the Michael Vey brand.

    "A Worthwhile Read"
    Any additional comments?

    The narration was better on this 4th installment than it was on the 3rd, but it does not beat Fred B. in the first two books. Also this book, while I found it worthwhile to read, just does not draw me in with a creative imaginative story as the first of the series did. Yet it is refreshing and entirely enjoyable to read a book where positive principles are woven throughout.

    "Good story, bad narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Hunt for Jade Dragon the most enjoyable?

    Good story that progresses the series.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Keith Nobbs?

    Fred Berman (books 1-2) would have been a far better choice. Keith Nobbs add strange pauses mid sentence very often. It makes the book hard to listen to, and sometimes you have to struggle to understand things as a result. The voice acting is better than Kirby Heyborne (book 3) but the odd speech pattern made the overall presentation worse.

    Fred Berman was probably the best narrator I've heard in all the 42 books in my library.

    "STOP CHANGING NARRATORS"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes but only because we're in the middle of the series and the story is not over. The first two books were great and the 3rd was good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hunt for Jade Dragon?

    It's hard to remember one because the reader is very monotone through out the book


    How could the performance have been better?

    First you need to start with a narrator with the ability to bring the characters to life with some excitement and inflection and tell the story with some passion.
