Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Bobby Pendragon is not like other boys his age. His uncle Press is a Traveler, and, as Bobby has learned, that means Uncle Press is responsible, through his journeys, for solving interdimensional conflict wherever he encounters it. His mission is nothing less than to save the universe from ultimate evil. And he's taking Bobby along for the ride.

Fresh from his first adventure on Denduron, Bobby finds himself in the territory of Cloral, a vast world that is entirely covered by water. Cloral is nearing a disaster of huge proportions. Reading the journals Bobby sends home, his friends learn that the desperate citizens of the endangered floating cities are on the brink of war.

Can Bobby - suburban basketball star and all-around nice guy - help rid the area of marauders, and locate the legendary lost land of Faar, which may hold the key to Cloral's survival?

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

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost City of Faar?

uncle presses death... i know he wasn't going to make it far in the book because bobby had to figure out how to do the adventurers some how with out him.. but still sucks

What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

Sniggers, Spinney-Do, Hobey-ho, Lets Go.

To quote Bobby Pendragon, "I love that guy." That guy being Spader. I love his energy, I love his zest for life, and I love his flaws, because we all have them.

This second book in the Pendragon series sets the stage for events and technology found in just about every book that follows. The relationship between Bobby and Spader is key to the series, and the reason it is rocky is just as key. It is an action packed, fun underwater romp until Saint Dane manages to poison the planet's food suply, putting Cloral civilization in the ballance. All that stands between the forces of evil and the teritories salvation is Bobby, Spader, Uncle Press and the fabled city of Farr.

I think is says a great deal about Bobby that he adopted Spader's patented phrase,

It is that way it was meant to be.

"Hobey-ho."

Love these books

As stated above, I love these books. I read them back in high school and was excited to experience them again through Audible. The story is still just as fun as I remembered and I’m definitely feeling the nostalgia. With that said, this narrator could not annoy me anymore than he does in this book. His attempt at different voices is abysmal. He makes everyone sound like a whiny little kid. Yes, I know the characters are teenagers, but come on, do better. He also says “short lived” with a long “i” instead of a short “i”...TWICE. Somebody tell him the proper way to pronounce the phrase so I can stop cringing.

This Narrator....

the narrator sounds like hes reading to a child. this is a young adult book. He has an annoying nasal drone and the only reason i keep listening is i cant find the trade book option. i loved the pendragon series when i was in school and i wanted to experience it again. Maybe this guy can grow on me. i hope so

Mispronunciation of contractions

I think this is the same narrator for whom I previously wrote a review. The story was ok but would have been better had the narrator not sounded like a young kid that didn't know how to pronounce 'didn't'. Every contraction with a 'd' in it he made into two words and doubled the sound of the 'd'. Very annoying since there were so many contractions and it hurt my ears.

e.g. didn't he pronounced as 'diddent'; wouldn''t he pronounced as 'woulddent'; couldn't he pronounced as 'coulddent', etc. I expect better from narrators.

I will look for his name in the future and find other books to listen to rather than those he narrates.
