Not Just for Young Adults

Having enjoyed the BBC Tripods series as a teenager, I couldn't resist trying the audiobooks. As this is a 'young adults ' series, my expectations were not high, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Although not without plot holes, the story moves forward at a pace, and young Will's excitement, enthusiasm, and rashness all make for a very engaging narrative. This is complemented by the excellent narration of William Gaminara. I thought initially to only listen to the first book, but ended up getting the whole trilogy. Highly recommended!

A whole new world.

The audio books and my kindle have opened up a whole new world to me. Having had reading difficulties throughout my early life I am now able to enter a whole realm of adventure. I have devoured the Tripods series The Pool of Fire is the third book and continues the longing to follow Will's challenges to escape; his life as a slave to discover the Tripods life style and use it against them. I never ever considered I would become a bookworm but I'm well and truly hooked and can't wait to listen to the next chapters. If you like adventure, science fiction and suspense, the whole series is a must and i'm so glad I purchased them.
