Listened to this book on the way to school every morning with 2 boys aged 7yrs and 12yrs. They were absolutely riveted and QUIET (yay!!). We could not miss a morning without the Ranger's.
Enjoyed this story as it unfolded. It painted a clear picture of the characters and how they developed along the way. Left me keen to delve deeper into the series.
I've been trying to get my pre-teen son to read this series having bought it for my now teenage son ... this helped get past the sometimes difficult phase of "Getting into" the story.he listened wrapped to the first 8 chapters and then grabbed the book off the shelf!!! 24 hours later and he's reading the second bookl in the series!!
Joyful news for any parent trying to encourage young boys to give up their games consoles!

I discovered John Flanagan's junior books by accident - one of the best accidents I've ever had. I'm spreading the excitement of the Ranger's Apprentice series to anyone who will listen!
What did you like most about The Ruins of Gorlan?
No matter how many times I read this it draws me in. The story flows well. The characters are well developed. II's for a young audience but well written enough to grab anyone of any age.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Halt was an interesting character. He has more heart than he shows. Halt doesn't really say much and because of this when he does speack it means a lot. John Flanagan and William Zappa executed the emotions perfectly in my opinion.
What about William Zappa’s performance did you like?
William Zappa's performance was very good, very natural
Any additional comments?
The book starts slow, introducing all the characters, building the plot. You seem to land in the middle before you realise it.

At first it's a slow start but as you read on it only gets better. I cannot recommend this book enough.
