Publisher's Summary

When her baby brother is kidnapped by crows, Prue McKeel begins an adventure that will take her and her friend Curtis way beyond her hometown and deep into the Impassable Wilderness.
There they uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval, a world full of warring creatures, peace-loving mystics and powerful figures with the darkest intentions.
What begins as a rescue mission becomes something much bigger as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness the locals call Wildwood.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Story is great but the accents are awful... They utterly distracted me from the story and it spoilt it for me.

What did you like best about this story?

The storyline was interesting

What didn’t you like about Amanda Plummer’s performance?

Really not strong on accents at all... Mixed up Northern, Irish and Scottish all in one sentence!?! Dreadful... Would've been far better to avoid them and let the Listener enjoy the story

What character would you cut from Wildwood?


Any additional comments?

Quality of the recording isn't great... 3 separate times the recording stutters and stalls and 'jams'. I feel let down & like I wasted my money a bit :(

quirky and endearing.

plummer 's performance, I felt, was mesmerising. other reviews say it was awkward and her accents were clumsy.
I felt I was for this very reason that her voice and performance matched the hipster, faux award, nerdy persona that was prevalent through the text. even the art work on and in the hard copy is a child like animation. The puposely imperfect childlike presentation in the narrative is simply, I feel, not an accidental flaw on Plummers part but a reflection on the entire body of work. I honestly don't feel like her accents were offensive (and I'm Irish!). I really loved this I've listened to it in its entirety at least 3 times and occasionally dip in and out of it when looking for a little light hearted day dreaming.. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE PART 2&3 RELEASED.
