One day, there was an owl named Darwin that works in the Dark Kingdom for King Eddie. He had a hard time seeing his life getting better - until one day when he met a dove named Jeremiah who showed him the light of hope.
This isn't my first children book I have listen to, its an alright book. I think its alright for children to listen to. It talks about birds. I think it'll be a nice story that you can sit down with your child but I'm not sure if I would listen to it again maybe because I'm an adult not sure but it was oky book.

Where does Trying to See the Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
My kids believe that this is one of the best audiobooks they have ever listened to.
I listen to many children's audiobooks and this one I'm on the fence with. In TRYING TO SEE THE LIGHT I have to first address the narration. It didn't work for the story. TREVOR CLINGER may be good at reading other books but this one, not so much. It sounded too robotic. It was completely monotone with no voice inflections.
The story itself was pretty cute. There was nothing wrong with it and I myself enjoy listening to religious-based stories. I thought it was cute and it's just a matter of parental preference. This was likely a better read than listen.

What disappointed you about Trying to See the Light?
The narrator used the same intonation and speech pattern as Christopher Watkins when he speaks. Christopher Watkins is funny and it works. This narrator sounds like this is part of his process of learning to read out loud for the first time.
Would you recommend Trying to See the Light to your friends? Why or why not?
No, it was irritating to my children and even more so to me.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Trevor Clinger?
Maybe Christopher Watkins if that is the style they are going for anyway. That would actually spruce up the story too.
Any additional comments?
I laid down and listened to this with my kids last night. of the 12 minutes, 2 minutes are copyright info. the other 10 minutes are a nightmare of fragmented sentences and a painful listen 90% caused by the narrator and 10% because the story was too detailed for the amount of time it was crammed into. It probably would have been fine (for my kids at least) if the narration hadn't been so rough. I received the book free from the narrator or author through Audiobook blast.
