A fun listen

I'm a senior citizen but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The reader is one of the best I've ever heard (and I've been listening to audio books since they were on tapes! ;) . She infuses the story with emotion, does the accents, reads it naturally without pauses in the wrong place.

I never read/heard the Gallagher Girls books but might try one after this. It was a real pleasure.

Great read for adults and young girls!

Wonderful story. Great balance between the main story line and the inner thoughts and feelings of a 12 year old girl. Nancy Drew of the 21st century. Enjoyable read for all ages.

Highly Recommend

I cannot recommend this audiobook highly enough! It is ideal for anyone who has or hasn't read the Gallagher Girls series. Rebecca Soler is a fantastic reader and I love how she made each character distinct and really alive.
Within the first three minutes I knew I was hooked and I've already started my second listen thru.

Unique idea, cliche execution

I was into this book at first, but stopped after chapter 6. It uses every kid story cliche there is, and jokes parents think kids like but have seen on every episode of a Disney channel show. Like a bumbling science teacher accidentally blowing things up and smoke coming through the door.

Feels like Harry Potter meets spy kids, but a lot of the character conversations don't feel genuine. That mixed with the cliches made me stop midway through chapter 6.

Now I have to buy the series.

I think I'm going to love this series. this free prequel has me itching for more.
Very cute, very fun. It does seem like it will be like Harry Potter. It shows good morals, behaviors camaraderie and friendships. I think my kids will like this book too.

Fantastic! Five Stars for An Amazing Performance.

The Spies That Bind was everything I could have hoped for as a prequel to my favorite series. I absolutely loved every single moment of it. The most memorable part for me was when Cammie found her first secret passageway. Rebecca Soler is amazing as the voice of Cammie Morgan.

Hogwarts for Spies

So, you have a genius non-legacy (muggle?) girl who doesn't quite fit in; a legacy who isn't sure of herself; and a super-spy to be in a school with hidden passages and the group needing to support each other to make it through. Felt like I was listening to a Harry Potter rip-off from the second chapter on. And, definitely, not as well written.

Stupid and Unbelieveable

We have an 1860's feminist 18-year-old girl who SAYS she wants to please her traditional mother, and who then promptly saves Abraham Lincoln from an assassin. Then she talks about what she learned in middle school -- something that wouldn't exist for another 100 years ... who talks like a Valley Girl ... I gave up after 15 minutes.

Heartwarming revisit to the Gallagher academy

It's rare to find authors who deliver consistently on plot, characterisation and energy at a high standard, and here is one - Ally Carter invokes teenage girl without being heavy-handed, portrays adults as imposing but rational (unlike many YA novels who vilify), summons a creative fantasy universe and inspires female achievement and strong sisterhood all at once.

Recommended for readers of the Gallagher girl series as a serious nostalgia trip.

Except for some at times awkward accents, a very good performance and appropriate voice for the story.

The Perfect Prequel

After feeling like I was Cammie at the Gallagher Academy when reading the original novels, this book felt like walking down memory lane!! Another brilliant one by Ally Carter, and so well read by Rebecca Soler!
