I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
We have really enjoyed this series. Sabrina is really a torn soul and her sister, Daphne, is a family joy. Punk is absolutely GRAVY and we have laughed out loud more than once.
We are somewhat sad to see this series go, the cliff hangers were really getting to us because we were ready before the book was released. Now that all the books are complete and ready to listen (in order) we think any family time can certainly be improved by listening to an audio book together.
If you don't mind staying in the Young Adult section, may we suggest Bras and Broomsticks? If you have a need to go on to the adult section, may we suggest David Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series? Our entertainment side goes for funny. Both side routes will have you laughing!
Yes, I'll listen again because it's the end of the series.
It wrapped up the series-long story.
Yes, I've listened to the entire Sisters Grimm series. L. J. Ganser did as well with this book as he has with the entire series. He's no Jim Dale (Harry Potter US version, Petter and the Starcatchers, etc.), but then, nobody is. His performance brings the story to life and makes for a fun listen on road trips.
This series is, to me, one book too long. The last book and this one should have been condensed into a single book, and then the series would have been just right. These last two books just seemed to drag compared with the others, but overall, the series is fun, imaginative, and very much worth listening to / reading, especially if you have children between 8 and 15 to enjoy it with. I'm in my 40's, and I still enjoyed it a lot. Each book has its own story that keeps them from being "more of the same" (for the most part), but there is a deeper story line running throughout the series that makes you want to keep going with the next book. I said above that the series is one book too long because the last two books depart from this pattern, and they both really only deal with the overall series story line, so they rely heavily on each other to tell the story. The others can be enjoyed by themselves.The series-long story is full of twists and turns, taking the listener on a ride that is fun and sometimes surprising. Overall, I recommend it to lovers of clean, entertaining stories that encourage and expand the imagination.
In the dictionary, next to the word "bibliophile" there is a picture of me... Ok... it's my dictionary... and I put the picture there.
I have not read the print version yet, however, the audio edition was so good that I plan to purchase the entire series in print and keep them as a family classic to share for generations to come.
That is difficult to answer without giving things away, so I will try to keep it vague for those who have not read it yet. It was Sabrina's secret weapon that ended up saving the day.
His unique inflections for each voice make you forget that there is only one person doing the voices.
Although this is a light story, where one wouldn't expect to be overly moved, there are plenty of heart warming moments and surprisingly a few that make you a bit a sad.
If you are looking for fun new adventure series to read with your children and even young teenagers I highly recommend this series. My child and I loved reading these, discussing the characters, the direction of the stories and debating which ones we liked best.
The sisters Grimm thought they were abandoned, maybe even orphaned... little did they know!
This is a series for the whole family. The second grader, the fifth grader, and the mom were all chomping at the bit for this 9th book in the series... we were not disappointed!
I liked how the author finished up this series. LJ Ganser performed this very well. And once again...Puck was my favorite!
YES!!! I like every book out of series but this was my favorite!!!! I like how the story ended!
I really liked how the author is focused and stays on track but still adds some humor.
He really brings the book to life, just by the voices you can tell the character attitude.
yes!!! at the end I was so happy I couldn't stop crying!
