Stormbreaker

The best thing about it was the ending. It was very scary at some points and I would not reccomend this book for any younger than 12. If it was a film, I would rate it either 12 or 15.
It was also very short and this was disappointing but only slightly as I finished this in no more than a week.

Performance wise, I think they could have been more enthusiastic about the story. I know bad parts of reviews are big put-downs but if the narrator improved their enthusiasm, they could probably get way better reviews. The voices were cute and they were perfect. My favourite was Mrs Jones. Alex's voice was too close to the narrator's normal voice though and if the book were 1st person, you couldn't tell dialogue from narration.

overall, I would give it 4 stars because it was good and exciting but also too scary and very unenthusiastic. thankyou for doing this audiobook.

My opinion

It’s was good but the tone just kept changing at points in the book but other than that great book. I’d say about 4/5 stars. Love the idea of it. I would recommend it to people above five or six.
