Great children's book and still good for adults

It's a nice innocent child's fantasy book and even though I'm older I thoroughly enjoyed it after I got into it. After some of the more acclaimed fantasy series I found this one more enjoyable some others with a darker tone

Engaging fantasy at its best

I've been listening to this audio recording at least yearly for some time...I used to rely on the public library, but I am so pleased to have an Audible version now. The plot is fantastic and the delivery of the narrator perfect. The characters are robust and compelling. I just can't say enough good things about The Sea of Trolls and its two sequels.

Fun read

What did you love best about The Sea of Trolls?

My son really liked this book, so I decided to give it a listen. I liked it well enough to go on to books two and three. Three is the most complex in terms of character, but that is also because the protagonists are older in that book. It's a strong series by a very creative author. Fun for young and old<br/> alike.

wonderful, adventurous and Norse. I am listening to the entire trilogy. This books is a fantastic amalgamation of Norse myth, general fairy tale, and classic adventure. Recommended for any one who craves all things Norse.

NO KINDNESS IS EVER WASTED

REPUTATION IS ALL A MAN HAS
As the reviewer Mila says, this author is creative. This is actually my second time to listen and I liked it even better this time around. The book can be enjoyed by 8 year olds and up to 108. It is entertaining from beginning to end. It is considered a kids book, because the author normally writes in that genre, the main character is a boy, there is no sex and the violence is down played. Some people are killed, but it is not dwelled on or made to sound gory, so your child will not have nightmares. You get to see life from the point of view of the Viking. The book is full of trolls, orcs, etc...

Very well done.

Reader was annoying

Story felt predictable and the reader annoyed me with his onamonapias. Some of the characters were interesting but too many of them were idiots based on some screwed up preconceptions on what historical people were actually like. Not checking out the sequel.

Well Told, Narrative Slow Going

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The narrator was wonderful but the plot lacked forward movement and we found we weren't compelled to find out what would happen next, but kept hoping the wind would enter the sails.... good characters and not a bad read, just not a great one.
