It's a great story. Great idea. It's a real mindbender for the imagination.
Character Naration is superb. Great voices for all the characters.
Story narration, however, was annoying. The writer and his wife(?) it seems double teamed the narration. Matthew is great at character voices, but his narrator's voice fits more with young childrens books (like Peter Pan or Mother Goose). He does not narrate action adventure adolecent sci-fi well at all. His voice is too gentle, soft and bordering effeminate. It sounded like he was reading to a 3 year old - which really ruined all of the action and fight scenes.
The word usage for the book was probably better fitting for English accent narrating or a hard female voice (like Alicia's Peterson's voice).
Alicia's voice is great. It is my opinion that the book needs to be re-narrated with Alicia's voice as the main narrator, with Matthew purely doing male character voices. I think this is the key to putting the book over the top.
Cover art is a little to "back-yard camera with the kids and hair dye".

Tweeners will thoroughly enjoy the audio recording of Paraworld Zero by Matthew and Alicia Peterson. My kids, already loyal Paraworld fans, delighted in hearing their favorite characters come to life. The story is chalk-full of humor and character which will keep young listeners captivated until the surprise ending. We can’t wait to see what Simon will do next!
