I downloaded this book for my 9 year-old son and 11 year-old daughter, both Harry P fans. Charlie really rated this book, humorous and exciting. The look of total concentration and the annoyance at the end of a journey at the CD being switched off said it all! Kate enjoyed it too, possibly with a little less enthusiasm, but gobbled up quickly for all that, which is usually an indication of a good story! She praised both the plot and characters and both kids enjoyed the narration.
I downloaded magyk because i liked the look of the title and i am so glad i did! My dad set up audible for me and it gave me the series of septimus heap. I listen to stories at night when i go to sleep and the septimus heaps are the books i listen to most. They are funny, action packed and i love listening to them at aged 19
Well read, exciting story, interesting characters and some humour: both my children (7 and 9 yrs old) loved this book, and are pestering me to get the next in the series. I have to say that the parents enjoyed it too.
Having been recommended the book by friends I read the paper version and really enjoyed it (I am a 35 year old woman). I bought the audio version for my son, who's 7, and he listened to it every night, and never wanted it to be turned off. Once he finished it he wanted to try reading the print version. More adventure than magic, with interesting characters and some twists (although I saw them coming) which surprised my son. He's now listening to the second book, Flyte.
a great introduction to a story the whole family enjoyed! have already started on the second book of the series, and we are loving it.
This book is the first in an ongoing series of books, currently seven. It is an excellent read for young or old, and the imagination of the author makes it a fun story which you just don't want to put down.
I like all of the Septimus Heap books although I am not this particular narrator's No.1 fan I think I was a bit unfair to him in my review of Eragon as I managed to listen to all the Septimus Heap books. It's not a masterpiece but it's entertaining, enjoyable and humorous would be wonderful for kids on a long car journey.
It started well and was well read but the story did go downhill about 3/4 the way through to the point that I couldn't finish it.
This book was amazing and i enjoyed it so much i have allready bought the series on audiobook and am allready on the third book. I just cant get enough.
I did enjoy the book although I thing the plot was abit lame. I had guessed the out come after the second Chapter. That said though I will get the rest of the books in hope that they do emprove. So far though I have to say I far prefer The Brtimaeus Trilogy (Jonathan Stroud) and Phillip Pullams work,Oh and I mustn't for J.K.Rowling.
