    More Scary & Violent Than "Heartwarming Adventure"

    I thought this one was going to be a page-turner for me. and in that I was really disappointed. The story got off to a great start, and in the first few chapters, I was thinking about buying the book to read to some of my grandkids during the holidays -- perhaps a new annual tradition, or perhaps letting them listen to the Audible book on my phone. Then a lost item was violently shoved kicking and screaming down a garbage chute, and that was the last I considered that. It's not that there are none of the heartwarming moments promised in the synopsis ("A heartwarming adventure about one child’s love for his most treasured thing and how far he will go to find it."), there are just many, many more scary or frightening moments and quite a few that are downright violent. About a third of the way through the story, I actually googled the age recommendation for the book, which Amazon says is "Recommended for ages 9-10 and up because there are some bigger life concepts that younger ones may not grasp." Yes, life concepts, certainly -- along with the concept of being violently captured, dragged off to the monster's lair, and then eaten by the monster ... or rather having the "livening" part sucked out and consumed, and then the remains burnt. It seems more suitable for a Halloween setting than Christmas.

    Is it a good story from a good storyteller? Yes, but not so engrossing that I did not want to turn it off. Don't think you're going to get anything in this story that harkens back to the cleverness of the Harry Potter novels, which I would imagine J.K. Rowling is going to struggle with for the rest of her career.

    From a technical standpoint, some of the narrative and spoken parts are impossible to understand because of either the musical score, the noises that are part of the story, and the accents, tone, and timber of the voices.

    Worth the credit to listen, but as you can tell, I was disappointed. Many of the books in my Audible Library I've listened to more than once. I'm not sure if this will be one of those.

    How is this the same person who wrote Harry Potter?

    I really really wanted to like this story…. I grew up with Harry Potter and still love those books. This one started off with a semi-promising story line but it devolved onto something that felt like a nightmare you’d have after been cooped up and isolated in your house for too long… moralistic paper clips and old western spectacles crying about being lost by their owners… it was like listening to a schizophrenic’s subconscious stream of thought. I want my 6 hours back please.

    Some voices hard to understand

    Well, it’s a good story that takes awhile to get going. I ended up enjoying it very much, but I couldn’t understand some of the characters because of the extreme computer manipulations (or mutilations, for me), especially the Loser. Unfortunately, i had to use so many rewinds, it was pretty ridiculous. The narrator and voices of Jack and CP were fantastic.

    You have to be JOKING, This story should NOT be to

    I was excepting a cute Christmas time story. What I got was a mix of Alice in Wonderland and someone ON ACID TRIP. The store is dark and creepy and not in a scaring Halloween way. I am not sure what the story was to teach a young person. Within the first hour you learned MEN are BAD Women are GOOD. IT's ok and right to be a spoiled child and act out without repercussions. I guess that is true in todays society anyway.
    I bought this book thinking it would be something good to listen to with my nephew (age 7) on a long ride. What I got was a TON of question on Why are the dads' so mean? How come the boy doesn't live with his dad? Why do those kids act so bad? After about 1:30 of listening to the book, he asked me to PLEASE put something else on. I agreed, but asked if he like the book. "NO It's mean and I don't like the people in it. They are all bad." WELL SAID.
    As far as the 3D hype, not worth it. Sound effects doesn't make it 3D
    BOTTOM LINE - I would not recommend this book to anyone.

    Distracting Noises

    The story itself was fun, but I did not particularly enjoy the listening experience. The main narrator was good; however, I did not care for the ensemble cast. Jack’s voice was difficult to understand. Plus, I found the computerized sound effects to be extremely grating. All the background noise distracted from the story.

    Over produced

    The story is sweet and the main narrator is wonderful.
    The added sounds are just noise and for me, offer little to the story overall.
    A good number of the minor voices were very hard to hear.

    Takes an adult back to being a kid

    As we age we forget what it is like when you were a child. This brings back wonderful memories of time long gone and forgotten. A must read for adults who have forgotten that wonderful time.

    Okay

    The story is many times quite longsome, but the speakers and noises are great. Some sentences don't fit to the story, especially at the beginning. It doesn't make that much sense to talk about plastic. The divorcement of the parents... Okay...
