"Just kept listening"
I'm rating this for my 12 year old son who just kept listening to the book. He loves historical fiction and this book was no exception. I downloaded it on a whim for him and he sat for close to the entire time just listening to it! 4 hours of grabbing a 12 year old boys attention says a lot in my opinion.
"Another excellent book this year"
We loved this book as a family and loved the narrator. Voice that is easy to understand and interesting to follow along with the book. We had several great conversations about this book.
My Brother Sam Is Dead is an amazing book and I would DEFINITELY recommend it for 5th-8th graders!!
"I hate to read but this was a really good book"
loved to read it really fast paced and mysterious to leave me thinking about it
This book was part of my son's 7th grade reading list. Many of the kids were not prepared for this subject. Further, the teacher was ill-equipped to handle the ensuing emotions. This book would be more useful as a psychologist's tool for adolescents with specific circumstantial issues.
the story was good, although narrow. quality of audio was poor. all in all decent for a younger crowd or someone who era specific books (war books)
"My Brother Sam is great!"
The themes and the easy read not to mention how well it ties in with 8th grade history
A bit to excited but clearly read
I would purchase from Audible.com again.
An interesting story, well read by the narrator, but way too much swearing! I found it offensive.
"Good story, some profanity."
Good telling of a family during the Revolutionary War era. Had some foul language that made it not suitable for listening by my 9 year old.
I teach this book, so I picked this up in order to keep it fresh in my mind while driving. However, I find the reader's voice to be so shrill that I can't listen for more than a few minutes!
I teach it to my 7th grade.
