Rich with mythology and vivid descriptions!
Would you consider the audio edition of The Islands of the Blessed to be better than the print version?
Haven't read print version but I love Gerard Doyle's voice in his reading of the book. So many different characters he finds a new voice for each!
What other book might you compare The Islands of the Blessed to and why?
The Ranger's Apprentice series. Both are geared toward youth or young adult, I'm 50 and really enjoy them. Characters have intellegence, bravery and values.
Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Just in this one series. (3 books) I love his narration.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, just couldn't wait to get back to it and very sa it was over in the end.
Any additional comments?
From the books I've listened to, the narrator makes such a impact on the story. The ability to change voices for different characters is amazing!

Absolutely loved it!!!
I just loved the whole series, from the mixture of Norse and Christian religions, to the harsh reality of the times, to the endearing characters, especially Jack, Thorgil and the Bard, to the grand adventures they went on, the magic, the wit, the poetry, mythological creatures, and of course no tale would be fit without a dragon or two! Wow, I could just go on. And the narrator was fantabulous! I hope Ms. Farmer carries on the saga of Jack and Thorgil in another unforgettable series. Thank you Nancy Farmer!
