Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely! I think anyone could get drawn in very quickly. I sure did.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how everything began so smoothly for this series. We jumped right into the plot and got to know the characters and their personalities. It was almost like I was there with them all. Such an intriguing adventure!

What does LC Kane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I loved how she narrated everything. The emotion when the scene needed it, like in the prologue. The different voices for the different characters. Just the little things I noticed that made it all the more amazing. It reminded me of audio dramas.

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

Absolutely!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to a friend because it fills in Oliver's past. There's a lot of action packed into a 30-minute audiobook.

What did you like best about this story?

I like that while it showed what life was like for Oliver before the Quest for Truth, it also had a moral to it.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene is when he's faced with a difficult decision. It really shows Oliver's character.

Folklore of a tree troll has always been whispered about in Misty Peaks. But now Hudson must decide if he believes it or not. Should he take the shortcut through Wasted Wood, or should he go around and guarantee he'll be grounded.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would totally recommend this to one of my friends! I don't want to be cliché or anything, but Wasted Wood literally keeps you at the edge of your seat! Not only that, but it also has a great life lesson intertwined through the story!

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Hudson, because I think generally all kids can relate to him.

What about Brandon Ruiter’s performance did you like?

Brandon Ruiter had the perfect creepy voice for this book. He portrayed each character's voice as I would imagine they would sound like. The way he added the sound affects was awesome!

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

"At the top of the embankment a huge wispy branch clawed through the air."

Any additional comments?

The AWESOME description paints a vivid picture in your mind! Also a hint of humor here and there that makes you chuckle a bit. The story has a great life lesson to live by! Like all of his other books that I've read I honestly don't think Brock Eastman could've written this book any better than he has! I loved it!!!
