Enjoyable even for Realists like myself
I'm typically not a fantasy lover, but I my 12 year old daughter is, so I purchased The Tethered World for her because I want her to read more books by Christian authors versus the "darker" fantasy books found in her public school library. I was intrigued by the concept of the story and decided that I wanted to read The Tethered World too; however, as a busy mom of 4 kids I didn't know when I would make the time. When the audio version came out, I knew it was the perfect opportunity! Being that I grew up in Oregon, I loved all of the Pacific Northwest references, including Haystack Rock and...Burgerville! The story sucked me in right away. There was mystery, suspense, humor, emotion & a hint of romance! I don't know how the narrator kept all of the voices straight for the many different characters, but she did! She brought the book to life, and she did an amazing job! If this book ever gets made into a movie, (which I hope it does), I would watch it to see all of the characters and the scenery REALLY come to life! I would recommend this book for pre-teens on up. Looking forward to the second book in the trilogy coming out this October!
