New Jersey really isn't this scary!

Where does Ancient Awakening rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'm normally not a fan of the genre, but after a friend recommended this book, I couldn't stop listening.

What did you like best about this story?

Being from NJ I found the settings to be familiar, but with enough of a twist to make me think twice before heading to those locations.

Which character – as performed by B. J. Harrison – was your favorite?

BJ created various voices for many of the characters. I couldn't call one out as better than the other, but in general his performance complemented the overall story quite well.

Any additional comments?

Don't listen to this book before you go to sleep.

Kind of like a comic book

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was OK. The story really is sort of comic book like--straightforward, predictable, fast paced.

If you’ve listened to books by Matthew Bryan Laube before, how does this one compare?

Haven't listened to any others.

What about B. J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

The narrator had one of those old fashioned voices, like you might hear on a recording from the 1930's. Kind of fun to listen to.

Could you see Ancient Awakening being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, I don't think this would be a good movie or series.

Any additional comments?

Light hearted fun if you need to fill some time.
