This is a fast paced book. It is well narrated. We listen to these in the car and it kept the whole family entertained and wanting more. The only bad ..Show More »part was when it finished and we did not have the next book to go on with. Fantastic for all ages.
I just don't think his voice fits. Although the voice modulation on certain parts is cool and layering audio is a nice touch for when multiple people ..Show More »are speaking at the same time is a cool idea. Just can't get over how poorly the guy's voice fits the characters.
Bobby's adventures continue with his first visit to a non-human society, where humans are called Gars and are considered a lower life form. While he ..Show More »is dealing with the ultimate culture shock and trying to stay alive, Mark and Courtney find that in order to do what they feel is the right thing they have to break some rules. They find out the hard way that you don't get to choose the consequences when you break rules, and sometimes others pay for your choices.
This series is amazing, and fun. I especially love this book because I am a parent, and my kids love this series. When they get to this book there are so many life lessons that can be learned from these words. How often do we set out to do something good, for all the best reasons, and along the way make choices the end up haveing unexpected and unintended consequences? I love how real the characters are, and how true to themselves they stay. Mr. MacHale has created each of them with unique motivations and drives, and even thought the series covers a significant age range for all of them, they are believable and embracable.
Mr. Dufris' performance in these books is magical. He brings the story to life. It is not just someone reading words from a page. It is a tallented voice actor making each individual unique, identifiable, and exciting. Some reviewers have complained about his performance. I thoroughly disagree. His reading is part of what makes it so fun to listen to these stories over and over again.
Thank you both for hours and hours of uplifting family entertainment.
This entire series is pretty good. It's nice to find a decent series and not have to spend a lot of time searching out the next book to read. This ser..Show More »ies is quite long and so is good for months of entertainment. I recommend the entire series and this book is every bit as good as the others I've read in this series.
I hate Spiders, I hate being confused about the travelers, but I love the story and thanks to my nephews who got me into D.J. MacHale, I Love this ser..Show More »ies and will finish it! Oh Nice evil twist in this book..
