  • "typical fantasy"

    Overall

    A little predictable - some recogniseable themes...... Didn't like narrator's voice at all, and in some places I couldn't tell which character she was trying to be, but did get used to it after a few hours.

    I'm a "mature" listener, but can't resist fantasy (loved the Twighlight series and A Discovery of Witches). Have just found I had to download book 2 in the series, despite myself.....so that must say something. It's hardly breaking new ground, or particularly well written (lots of cliches used), however it's typical escapist fantasy, and will help to pass a few hours on the train (or ironing!) pleasantly.

    Still not 100% convinced that chalk drawings are serious foe........but hey, who cares....it was still good fun, and worth spending an audible credit on. If you enjoy Sanderson's story-telling, and in need of some fun, light relief, then you won't be disappointed.

    One thing Sanderson is never: predictable. Yes, it's not quite as strong as Stormlight, or the last WoT books, but still worthy of a listen. It has some humour, and, typically, a good solid twist near the end that leaves you wanting more. I'll be watching out for the sequel....

    Thank you Mr Sanderson for keeping my commute tolerable.

    More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity's only defense against the Wild Chalklings - merciless creatures that leave mangled corpses in their wake. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles. As the son of a lowly chalkmaker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students study the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing....

  • "Easy listen"

    Overall

    I'm giving this 4 stars, not because it's a brilliant story, but because as a young adult / teenage read it's fine! A superman-meets-Percy Jackson, which although predictable in the "alien boy falls in love with human girl" kind of way, it's still a very easy listen, and will undoubtedly appeal to the young adult market. I agree with one of the previous reviewer's comments regarding the kissing....although I have no aversion to the act, there is a tad much of it here, and it does become a little nauseating after a while. It's better than a 3 star, but it does fall short of 5 in that it's just a little too predictable.....

    The introduction states the authors name, and then that the book is PERFORMED by Adam Kaplan (as opposed to "narrated by"), and I have to give credit where credit is due - he's pretty good! He sounds like a teenage boy one minute, and then a fifty year old Frenchman the next, and this does make listening easier when it comes to identifying who is who....

    An utterly gripping thriller from best-selling author Lauren Oliver. Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a poor town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do. Heather never thought she would compete in panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She'd never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.

    On a hot summer night in a midwestern town, a high school teenage prank goes horrifically awry. Alcohol, guns, and a dare. Within minutes, as events collide, innocents becomes victims - with tragic outcomes altering lives forever, a grisly and unfortunate scenario all too familiar from current real-life headlines. But victims can also become survivors, and as we come to know each character through his/her own distinctive voice and their interactions with one another, we see how, despite pain and guilt, they can reach out to one another, find a new equilibrium, and survive.
