If you could sum up The Green Ember in three words, what would they be?

Wonderful & Completely Enthralling

What other book might you compare The Green Ember to and why?

The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe , because you have a couple of unlikely young characters, that even though they feel powerless and are inexperienced they make a big difference and overcome great odds.

Which scene was your favorite?

There is a part when one young and doubtful rabbit realizes he can make a difference and it is wonderful!

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

If I had the time I would have absolutely listen to this all at once.

Any additional comments?

This is a wonderful book for adults and children alike. You will fall in love with the characters and become immerse in the story from the start. Once read you will be ready for the prequel and/or the second in the series. This is to good to not find out what happens next.

What did you love best about The Black Star of Kingston?

How absolutely enchanting it was, this book is wonderful for children and adults alike. It has true heroes who face great odds and have to make tough choices. These characters are easy to relate to and you will get lost in the story.

What about Eric Fritzius’s performance did you like?

He was wonderful in giving each character their own life and style. It was easy to get carried away with the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh out loud a few times :)

Any additional comments?

This is a great family story or a personal read. All ages will love it and it will give you something to talk about, think about and play for a long time to come. You will not look at a rabbit the same way again, you will smile.
