Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
My children are crazy about Michael Vey! We have loved listening to the series on audible as we commuted to and from school. I find the stories enjoyable, as well, and this most recent installment was a much anticipated event for our carpool! However, this narrator is absolutely terrible! The first two books were fantastically performed and after getting used to a new voice, we even enjoyed book 3. This new narrator, though, is very hard to listen to. He has strange breaks in the way he reads - his voice goes up as if he is asking a question on each sentence. It gives a very 'Valley Girl' feel to all of the characters and makes his narration choppy and difficult to follow. And instead of somehow growing on you, as most narrators eventually seem to do, this one just gets more and more grating. I don't know what is involved in hiring a professional narrator, but this narrator on this book is *really* hurting the Michael Vey brand.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes but only because we're in the middle of the series and the story is not over. The first two books were great and the 3rd was good.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Hunt for Jade Dragon?
It's hard to remember one because the reader is very monotone through out the book
How could the performance have been better?
First you need to start with a narrator with the ability to bring the characters to life with some excitement and inflection and tell the story with some passion.
