An entertaining read.
An intriguing and entertaining read.
When Jet is at his grandfathers funeral, a strange man hands him an envelope and a key. He finds clues that lead him to something that he puts down to being a compass because it seems to be showing him the way to somewhere. He decides to follow it and from that moment on, his life is changed forever!! It's hard to say much more about the plot without spoiling something so I'll get straight to my thoughts.
Character wise: I loved Jet. He is a typical boy until he finds the glove, but even after finding it and discovering what it can do, he stays down to earth and stays himself. I also loved the fact that he uses his friends to help him. He knows he can't do it all himself so enrolls some of his friends. He was easily relatable and likable.
Plot wise: This has lots of layers. You think it's just a simple tale but it's not. It's not only Jet's tale but it's a story of his grandfather, his father and even people he doesn't know. He threw in a side story of missing kids that intertwine with the main story and I loved how the author made the kids heroes for being brave and doing whats right. It's fast paced, intriguing and captivating and I enjoyed everything about it.
Audio wise: The narrator did an amazing job with this book. He breathed life int the characters and made the story more enjoyable. You could easily distinguish the characters even though he didn't change his tone much throughout. It was a subtle change which I liked.
In all, this was a pleasant and quick listen. I was surprised how much I loved the story. The author has created an intriguing first book and since it's a debut, I was well impressed. I can't wait to see where the author takes the story and characters and am looking forward to book 2.
