This book is amazing.

I spent only 2 days on this book. It's an amazing cliffhanger! I have listened to all the land of stories books and they are all just so awesome. I could write much more about this (In a good way)

Amazing continuation!

While the first two books in this series are easy to love cause they take our fave fairytales and twist them up in awesome ways, then the third one takes us into other classic books, this installment is even more fun. In this book, we go into original stories that may even be more fun than the classics. A rip roaring pirate adventure, a cool space odyssey, an awesome superhero trip, and a run with mummies in an Indian jones like finish. All while the characters from the first four books have to work to survive a fairytale land taken over by villains! And nothing is better than listening to Chris Colfer narrate. I could listen to him read the phone book I love his vice so much, and his character voices are awesome too!

The new generation's Harry Potter

Although I feel that Harry Potter is the Millenials' generation work, I also think that this work by Chris Colfer a fellow Millennial is giving us a new world to dive into.

Mostly praise worthy

My son and I enjoy listening to these together! The only thing I don't like are the curse words & the references of Mother Goose being a drunk & supposedly she's been with plenty of men. She's a bit much.

Great story, wish there was more of a conclusion

The author & narrator create an entertaining story. I understand this book is part of a series, but I would like more of a conclusion not just leave you hanging waiting for the next book.

Imaginative genius! (Spoiler alert)

The fifth book in The Land of Stories series is about the twins' adventures into fictional dimensions - journeys into the short stories created by the teenage protagonist Conner Bailey. The author/narrator Chris Colfer portrays the layers of fictional worlds with imaginative genius. He incoporates humor into dialogue, gives psychological depth to his characters, and the plot is dynamic and engaging. He narrates the audiobook with so much energy and creativity. His career as an actor/performer really makes his audiobook narrations lively and fun - I was able to follow every detail in suspense, laughed during all the funny parts, and was blown away by each of the dramatic surprises. You won't regret listening to the performance of this book. The Land of Stories is a must-read for anyone who loves adventures! (*spoiler: the cliffhanger ending may leave some people in agony - but it sets up the setting perfectly for the final Land of Stories book, which will be released on July 11, 2017.)

Awesome Author's Odyssey

I thought this book is really good because Cris Colfer puts story tales into one world and it is wonderful all the detail he puts in so we can see what is happening, what the characters look like and the places they are at. Cris Colfer reads the book in so much expression it sounds like there are different people for each person. I love The Land of Stories and can't wait until the next one comes out on Audible.
