What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the freshness of the story. Mr. Milosevic writes beautifully. The details of the lives of the river/pocket people and the Giants were described and painted before me with the assistance of the narrator's performance.
What about Jane Oppenheimer’s performance did you like?
Ms. Oppenheimer has a wonderful rhythm to her storytelling. She was able to transport me to the world Mr. Milosevic created.
Any additional comments?
I received this copy via audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review.
Real rating 3.5*
This book is not currently part of a series. According to the author, “No firm plans at this time, but, yes, I hope to write a sequel someday.”
Having just read a book that explained nothing, it was nice to start with an explanation of the basic geography and character backgrounds etc. It was straight forward and clear.
I like Firefly’s loyalty and persistence. I also like that she behaves like a real teenager - she makes impulsive decisions which later have serious consequences; and, towards the end, she is determined to do something she earlier thought foolish, simply because she is mad at the people who don’t want her to do it.
Unfortunately, I didn’t find the ending to be satisfactory. I felt like, although they learned something important, they didn’t really resolve their current situation.
NARRATION: Smooth, very storytellerish without being overly dramatic / Listened on 1.25 speed (my usual)
