Magic for middle schoolers, but not much fun

*shrug* It was okay. Not the "if you loved Harry Potter, you will love this!" level of book that the claim suggested, but it was readable. There were three people in a magical world; one was a girl that had all of the magical knowledge in the group, one was a boy that leapt into dangerous situation and made bad decisions, and the third was awkward and felt like he didn't quite belong and had a crush on the girl...oh, wait, maybe it is a little like Harry Potter... That's where it ends, though.

It lacked pizzazz. And charm. And, to be honest, magic.

Friendship in a magical world

Would you listen to Elizabeth's Legacy again? Why?

Yes, this is an introduction to a world with lots of interesting characters so before listening to the next book I'll probably re-listen to review the characters' names and twists in the plot to make sure I haven't forgotten anything important!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hard to choose between Ben and Charlie - both are heroic and charming in their own way

What does Peter Kenny bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Peter Kenny does a great job of interpreting the characteristics of the elves and other magical beings using his voice and different accents. He also manages to make Ben and Charlie sound young but not childish.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - I just couldn't go on an 8 hour walk ...

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for book 2 - listened to the preview at the end of this audiobook.

A Warm and Wonderful Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Elizabeth's Legacy to be better than the print version?

Don't you know the Audio version is always better than the print version? I am blind, so partial always to audio, but I think Peter Kenny's voice is much better than anything my brain could come up with.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Both Ben and Charlie have their good points and both are well written characters. I love them both for different reasons.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I have to say I really love how the author set the scene for this book, beginning with one of Ben's descendents. The mystery and magesty of the Royal Institute is quite gripping and I love the idea of a brave commoner daring to tread the halls of the mighty and noble.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a lot. It really gave me the same kind of warm feeling as the Harry Potter series still gives me every time I do a reread. Certainly if that series is one of your favourites then you will really love this book.

Any additional comments?

Peter Kenny does a fantastic job narrating this book, as he does with so many others. It was a real joy to listen to and fantastic for anyone looking for a more light-hearted read.
