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
alike.

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.

childhood favorite; wonderfully narrated

A wonderful tale for all ages, and the narrator's voice is absolutely perfect for this book.
