Entertaining, well paced, youth Sci-Fi story

My daughter and I listened and enjoyed the story. The vocalization was excellent, with a nice range of voicings making it obvious which character is speaking. The story starts a little slowly and is a bit awkward in a few places, but that didn't detract from our enjoyment, and my daughter wants to get the print book to add to her library of things to read when she's done with electronics for the day :-)

Cool story

What other book might you compare Joe Devlin and the Lost Star Fighter to and why?

Agree with another reviewer that called this 'star wars lite'. It does give that vibe.

What about Amber Neko Meador’s performance did you like?

Just good voicework all around. It was easy to follow which character was speaking throughout the book.

Exciting and interesting story!

If you could sum up Joe Devlin and the Lost Star Fighter in three words, what would they be?

Star Wars Lite

What was one of the most memorable moments of Joe Devlin and the Lost Star Fighter?

I really liked the introductory chapters. Often times it takes me a while to get into a story, but I was immediately pulled into the this one.

Which character – as performed by Amber Neko Meador – was your favorite?

I actually liked all of the characters. Amber gave different voices for all of them, so it was easy to follow along.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I enjoyed all of the moments! It felt very professionally written, and the voice actor did a good job of bringing the story to life.

Any additional comments?

I thought the cover looked a little amateurish, so my expectations were not as high as they should have been. I was blown away by the quality of the writing and the flow of the story. This is by far one of the better stories I have listened to on Audible.
