Unique, Fun, Clean Family Fantasy
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes! Fun adventure, lovable characters, great world building and character development.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Too many to choose one. Sadie is relatable, Sophie is adorable, Brady is brave, Brock is surprising. Still, I'm drawn to quirky old people, so Aunt Jules holds a special place in my heart. Of course, you can't forget all the amazing fantasy characters! The Gnomes are probably my favorite--small, but feisty!
What about Sarah Elizabeth Gerstenberg’s performance did you like?
Sarah is the perfect voice for Sadie! She captures Sadie's personality, and even produces different voices for each character. I also loved the addition of sound effects; I haven't come across that very often in audio books, but I thought it was a nice touch. Really makes you feel like you're experiencing it.
Who was the most memorable character of The Tethered World and why?
Sadie. The story is in her point-of-view, so you experience everything through her eyes. She starts out as a relatable teen and reluctant participant in the adventure, but her development is extraordinary. Sadie proves she's far braver than she thinks, and her devotion to her family is beautifully portrayed.
Any additional comments?
This story is filled with lovable characters and action-packed adventure, all in a unique (and almost believable) setting! It's equally fun and entertaining as it is thought-provoking. Highly recommended for clean fantasy lovers, and especially families looking for a good book to read together!
