What are you reading at the moment?






I'm currently listening to The Youngest Templar: Keeper of the Grail by Michael P. Spradlin.


I'm about halfway through and very much enjoying it so far.

How about you?

I'm listening to Time Stops for No Mouse: A Hermux Tantamoq Adventure.

I've been reading and listening to Children's and Young Adult, along with many, many other books over the last 30 years. While this reader isn't the worst I've ever listened to, he isn't the greatest either.

Amazon shows it is being the first book in the series and aimed at the age group 12 and up. While I don't find it one of the greatest books that I've listened to, I'll give it 3/5 stars.

My main criticism is that it's filled with many difficult names of the characters, that I feel most 12-year-olds would have difficulty in pronouncing, if they read the book instead of listening to it on audio as I do.

And there are some places where the plot bogs down into much detail; such as the reading of the daily entries in the Explorers Journal.

the plot itself is interesting, and is not your typical "mouse" story that you expect, so I would recommend it, especially as a physical book for the child to read while listening to the audio at the same time.

This was the only way I could get my nephew to "read" a book when he was 10 and 11 years old.

I love audio books, but like you, I sometimes have a problem with the reader. My favorite narrators to date are Jim Dale (who did an incredible job with the US audio versions of the Harry Potter series), Stephen Fry and the folks who read Bernard Cornwell's Saxon stories, set in the days of King Alfred.
