Publisher's Summary

Meet Benjamin Dragon, a boy with a gift...

Benjamin is smart, really smart. Without asking Benjamin, his parents move to a new town and put him two grades ahead of where he should be. Now a full head shorter than other kids in his new school, Benjamin is a perfect target for bullies. Is he destined to be an outcast once again?

Then strange things start happening. A bully brushed aside. A car diverted from smashing into a young girl. Is it coincidence or is Benjamin making them happen?

Follow Benjamin as he discovers his unique 'gift' while dealing with the complexities of junior high, friends, bullies, camp and strange visitors.

Benjamin Dragon - Awakening is Book 1 in The Chronicles of Benjamin Dragon.

Appropriate for ages 9 and up.

    "A wonderful book for adults too"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Awakening (Chronicles of Benjamin Dragon, #1) by C.G. Cooper is an exciting middle age kids book. I am certainly far from being a middle age kid but I thoroughly enjoyed it. A kid with that is mentally gifted and has another special gift. Bullies, but one of those is resolved in an unusual way. Suspense, fun, a camp, strange people with strange gifts too, and great fantasy. It was a fun read that didn't speak down to the reader. Great read.

    "Great Story. Awkward Narration."

    This book is well worth the listen. It takes it's time setting up the world and gradually introduces you to the powers that Benjamin is developing. You discover along side the character. The narration wasn't awful, but I felt at many times that the reading of certain lines just left the moment awkward when it wasn't necessary.

    "A great book to READ"

    This book was quite enjoyable but the narration was very weird. Ike he word pause where there was no pause needed ,and his tone of voice made it hard sometimes to understand what he really meant in that moment.

    Story
    "great kids story, poor performance."

    I almost stopped listening in the first chapter due to poor narration. but the story seemed to be interesting enough that I finished the book. my kids will enjoy this series.

    The narrator needs to learn where to take breaths. His poor narration grayed on me throughout the book. things like:
    It........... was his turn to play.
    or
    He........... hadn't done that...... in years.

    He kept adding long pauses where they should not have been. Sometimes it confused me what was being said until the pause ended and the rest of the sentence was read.

    And he would emphasize words that almost changed the meaning. There were times he sounded like he was asking a question when it was not.

    His voice is pleasant enough, but he really needs to read like people talk and remove the incorrect pauses.

    "The Audio was Awful"

    The Audio was broken, monotone, and sounded like it was being read by a robot :( I couldn't get into the story so I can't say whether it is good or not :(

    "Great story, narrator needs work"
    What did you love best about Benjamin Dragon - Awakening?

    2 things: Benjamin's personality, and the fact that a bully gets transformed into a good kid!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Whenever the narrator was reading anything except actual quotes, his delivery was flat, ominous and robotic. It was almost as if each word was recorded separately and then just spliced together. We mostly got used to it by the end, but it was very distracting.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator's conversational performance (voices, inflection, etc) was wonderful. But anything that wasn't actual speaking parts for the characters was so flatly done. He could be a GREAT narrator, but needs some coaching.

    "Awful narration."

    Entire thing read with a very careful monotone. I listened to the first chapter and then skipped about halfway through. I cannot tolerate the narration
