Excellent book that kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning! Funke takes you into a fantasy world like no other.. not into a world unknown b..Show More »ut one brought to present day. When Meggie's father Mo reads out loud, he brings characters into the present giving you an exciting view from the characters in a book. This one you won't regret listening to!! BREATHTAKING!!
The story was as spellbinding to me as the last two, but to not have Brendan Fraser as the narrator was a major disappointment!!! I'm sure Mr. Cordun..Show More »er is good with other works, but he didn't even TRY to match the voices Brendan had established in the previous books. The Black Prince had a high wimpy voice, Fenolio was suddenly changed from New Yorker-ish to Russian, Orpheus went from Southern to British, Roxanne and Brianna went from French to the same general part of the world as Fenolio! Very frustrating. It even made me hate hearing Meggie after a while; she was so whiny and nasally. On the plus side, he did well with Eleanor; she was annoyingly whiny and nasally already! Sigh. Please get Brendan back for any more or at least someone similar!
