Join Jordy, Alex, and Chloe as they cross the portal from our world to a strange and wonderful place, accessible for just a moment through the trapdoor of the attic in their family home. From hat-stand forests to towering hills of old musical instruments, deserts of old books, and a great water-tank lake, the vast continent they stumble upon is one of limitless surprises - and that’s before they meet the inhabitants. The strange clans of small, lumpen people live in homes constructed from all manner of found things and drive vehicles powered by old sewing-machine parts. It is against this remarkable backdrop that the three children will embark on a spellbinding adventure to recover a prized possession, save a life, and - somehow - find a way back home.
A story of courage, loyalty, and friendship; of incredible landscapes,ingenious devices, and cunning plot twists, Attica has a richness and depth that will delight listeners of all ages.
I downloaded this book as I had a long journey to make and often find it is easier to lose myself in a world created for children. In that respect it sort of worked. The performer was really good at giving each person a voice, and the concept was interesting. The story I found in paces a bit weak and others a bit bizarre/creepy not really what I expected. Mostly though it was light hearted and fun and I am clearly not the intended audience so shouldn't judge to harshly. It was imagining it from the intended audience that made me consider parts of it wierd - I think it loses sight of its audience at times.
Overall OK, enjoyed most of it most of the time.
