His voice sounds very natural and like he wrote the book. He uses emotion and changes his tone a lot.

Some parts definitely made me laugh.

Would you consider the audio edition of Truthful Test: An Oliver Wikk Adventure to be better than the print version?

We liked listening to it. My 11 year old son and I listened to it together. He gave the performance audio three stars because her voice didn't show much emotion.

What did you like best about this story?

My son liked how the author wrote the story with a lot of action, using strong verbs to create suspense.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes it did match the pace of the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Truthful Test is a very fitting title and tag line.

Any additional comments?

This is one of my son's favorite authors. He likes how the author writes in a fast paced yet suspenseful way. I like how he incorporates good lessons, and morals. The only thing my 11 year old said he would change about it, is he would make it longer. He loves spending hours reading Brock Eastman's books.
