Whole family enthralled!

Where does Taken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Our family as a whole loves this series - 2 parents, 8 y/o girl, 6 y/o girl and 4 y/o boy. We listen in the car mostly but sometimes just can't take waiting and listen at home also. Mom and my two girls are probably the most obsessed and this is in our top 10 audiobooks for sure!

What did you like best about this story?

We love the family-friendly adventure. This is a story that is probably meant for kids in the YA audience most (maybe older elementary-tween-teen?) but we all love it and I as a parent appreciate the appropriate nature of the content and the integrity and respectfulness in the characters while still listening to intense adventure. I like how the author has them "think through"/talk through attitudes and motives.

Which character – as performed by LC Kane – was your favorite?

I'm not sure we can choose - we love all the characters. And they each have their strengths AND weaknesses. One daughter loves Tiffany most. Mom is torn between Oliver and the twins but appreciates when they work out their differences together and recognize mistakes and apologize for them.

Any additional comments?

I will say that when we first started listening (first couple chapters) I as the adult wasn't sold on the narrator - it seemed very "cold"....but I was soon won over and realized that it has more subtle nuances and the "evenness" of the narrator actually lends perfectly to the settings/time period of the books. I don't think she has a huge differentiation in voices for the characters but it doesn't deter us from listening. ALSO - we have the hard copies of The Quest for Truth books and are reading them as well as listening (we're further along than the audible versions so far). I HIGHLY recommend listening to the audible of the 1st book (Taken) either before or while reading the hard copy. It is so helpful in hearing the names/words of the characters that we wouldn't know how to pronounce and so now as we read the books ourselves (either as family read-alouds or my 8 y/o on her own), we read with the pronunciations as intended! We got a clearer picture of the characters by listening to the audible narration!

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
