Totally Entertained!

If you could sum up Heroes Wanted in three words, what would they be?

Awesome, Entertaining, Well Written

What other book might you compare Heroes Wanted to and why?

Any children's fantasy and fable. It delivers.

Awesome, pleasant voice and expressions. A different kind of "sense of fun" in the verbal tale.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

In the realms of mythology and fantasy, Dragons and Gods, come meet the ordinary people.

Any additional comments?

I love heroes in myth and fantasy, so I was hooked by the title going in. The story is well written. Lively to listen to, I loved the reader’s voice, and the way she read it. Change can be very distressing, but the most unexpected opportunities develop, when everything falls apart in real life too. The story was surprisingly well told, with a very adult fear reflected in different point of view of fantasy and fable. The first story reminded me of my real life job in its essence. I enjoyed it immensely, definitely a five star story. The audible version was so much fun to listen to. It made me happy. I’m an avid reader, so I can be hard to please, and I was so entertained. I read the e-book too, which I also enjoy a lot. I am very into mythology. I loved that about this second story. It was wonderful. Again it was well written, well told, and even made me “tear up”. I loved the ending; it was smooth and totally believable. Real fears about war and losing loved ones, dealt with, and delivered in manner that leaves you smiling wanting more. I can’t wait to read and listen to more of this author.

Pretty good one!

Would you consider the audio edition of Heroes Wanted to be better than the print version?

I wouldn't know as I didn't read the print version.

What other book might you compare Heroes Wanted to and why?

It is in a league of it's own, or at least for me.

Which character – as performed by Linda Joy – was your favorite?

I preferred the bad customer or the hero in training in the 1st book. Reminds me of the irate customers that call me at my job.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The second story was pretty touching

Any additional comments?

This is a pretty good one. I listened to it via audible. I especially loved the 1st story as it was more my cup of tea with technology involved. But they were both very well written and translated.
