Pleasant

The main thing noticed that there were too many mispronunciations. Occasionally misplaced emphasis, but basically, a good read of a good story.

Just as good as the first book. Definitely aimed at the "young adult" market but enjoyed it nonetheless.

It was good, but.......

What made the experience of listening to Oakleaf Bearers the most enjoyable?

I have enjoyed this series immensely and took this book almost as a reflex action. I enjoyed the story, but found it a bit too drawn out. As usual the action got me in, to listen to each bow shot and clang of armor was fun and entertaining. William Zappa did his usual best when reading this tale. I shall look forward to the next book, despite my slight disappointment in this one. it is still a good read.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the continuing story of Will and Holt, of their adventures in other lands as well as their own. Although just a bit labored the story does jog along fairly well, and with Horace as a sidekick as well as princess Cassandra, plus the Skandians kept it going.

What about William Zappa’s performance did you like?

William Zappa is a really good choice to narrate this tale, he can change the accents and not forget who is speaking, all in all it is a good job done.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Bold and exciting in the old fashion way.

Any additional comments?

The story could have either been a little shorter, or something added to fill in the spaces of music between chapters. I find that in this book, the music after the chapter is announced a bit off putting, I was never sure if I was beginning or ending a chapter, but otherwise no other comments.

brilliant, thanks audible

just brilliant, the skandian battle very visual in my minds eye takes you back to ancient and simpler times.
