Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would either change the audio mix or the performance. It was maddening. Andrew Scott goes from low whispers to full-on yells in the same breath. So you either miss details or your eardrums get pounded. I would recommend getting an audio equalizer to go with this audio book.
I am a grown up "kid" and enjoy listening to something reminiscent of my younger years. I saw this on Amazon and decided to try it as an audiobook, instead.
As you all know, the performer can make or break an audiobook and Andrew Scott does a great job making this a fun listen. He is consistent with all of the different voices and brings believable emotion to the character's lines. Mr. Scott also provides a pleasant variation in the tone, volume, and speed of the reading - appropriate to the situation.
The story was a bit slow to start- trying to figure out whether the legends or the legend hunters were the "good guys". However, once the story got rolling, it became interesting to the point that I didn't want to turn it off when I got to work. Mr. Hegarty wrote young teenaged angst fairly accurately, securing my interest in Finn's journey. I appreciated that every now and then, the author would introduce one of the legends in a first person dialogue chapter. It helped me to get a better grasp of the dire situation about to befall Darkmouth.
In summary, I enjoyed it so much, I've already started the sequel.
