My Thoughts When I was offered Jesper Jinx as an audiobook to review I did not hesitate in saying yes. I already knew I like the book, so getting ..Show More »to listen to it only added another aspect to this story, leaving me wanting to know what it would sound like. Jesper Jinx is only 1 hour and 17 minutes long, so it didn't take too long to make my way through this book. The story itself was just as funny as I remember it to be, and I was also surprised I had forgotten a few things that happened, so it was almost like listening to a new book.
One little thing that I really liked was the transfer from physical book to audio. The physical book has a page to sign for a confidentiality agreement, but the audio still has this option, only change to a voice recognition that the author supposedly records on tier end. I think this would really appeal to children listening to this book and make them interact with the book.
Narration I was initially unsure about the narration. I don't really know who the narrator, Peter Black, was when I went into this book, and it did take me a while to actually warm up to his reading style. There were a few parts that I think could have done with a longer pause, or parts that felt like the pause was too long or just didn't fit into the sentence itself.
Final Verdict Going into Jesper Jinx I knew I would enjoy the story itself, but it took me a while to warm up to the narration, and with the book being so small, by the time I warmed up to him the book was nearly over. This is the only reason why I didn't give Jesper Jinx four stars. Overall though, Jesper Jinx was an enjoyable book and is perfect for small journeys with children.
My Thoughts Jesper Jinx is back in the second audiobook of the series, Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season. I made a start on listening to this on..Show More »e immediately after finishing the previous audiobook, so I was aware of both the story itself and the narration.
Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season was exactly how I remember it, but made even more funny by the narration and the little touches to the story. Like the previous book this has the verbal confidentiality agreement, but there are also fine details in small print, this was portrayed with mumbling that it very indistinguishable, just like fine print can be, this certainly made me laugh and had me straining to really hear what was being said.
Narration Already warmed up to the narrator I went into Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season aware of what the narrator sounded like, and also the timing of his speech. I found myself enjoying Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season more than the previous audiobook and I think this helped me enjoy it more, and be less picky about the narration.
Final Verdict Jesper Jinx and the Sneezing Season was a more enjoyable book than the previous, I think I even liked this more than the book itself. This is another perfect story for children to listen to on short journeys and will keep then entertained.
