I loved that this was a clean read. I enjoyed ’The MacKinnon’s Bride’ and thoroughly enjoyed ’Page’.

It took a bit of getting used to Angela Ness. Her male voices weren't bad but I already used to Braden Wright’s rendition. There was one part, in both books, that involved a song. Braden Wright actually tried to sing it while Angela Ness just spoke the words. I would have liked it if she had tried but it was good anyway.

There was also a couple of places where a sentence is repeated, which was a little distracting but nothing major.

All things considered, I would listen to this again.

John Flanagan once again gives us another thrilling story, however the narrative can be distracting at times. John Keating does a good job giving each character their individuality however he reads with so much attention to punctuation that it becomes distracting and at times stops were there is no punctuation. Because of this the story is lost a little.

For a quick lighthearted read this book is really good . Don't read this book if you want something deep and meaningful.

Any additional comments?

Im not sure why but this book and 'the siege of Macindaw' are my favourite books in the rangers apprentice series. Considering the amount of times Will has received commendation it's nice to know he is still reasonably humble and unsure of himself. Will can still admit when he needs help and even alows someone else to take control of a situation he is unfaliliar with. I'm not really sure what to say without giving to much away but this book ends on a cliff hanger, leaving you wanting more. It's necessary break and stops at a good spot.

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.
