John Keating is NOT a good reader.

If I hear him say PAR TIC U LAR LEE and Booie one more time I will just scream. My husband heard him a short while a d said, “ how can you put up with THAT?” If I didn’t like John Flanagan’s writing so much I wouldn’t put up with him.

Great new adventure for kids and teen readers.

Scorpion Mountain is a great new adventure in The Brotherband Chronicles by John Flanagan. This time they are on a mission for King Duncan of Araluen. Joined by Ranger Gilan, Hal and his crew sail for the shores of Arrida to confront Iqbal and the corsairs that have hired the cult assassin group to kill Princess Cassandra after another failed assassination attempt. John Keating delivers a good performance of this book. The Brotherband Chronicles just keeps getting better with this latest instalment in the series.

Entertaining and wonderful read

As always wonderfully written and performed by both Johns' a .little overly repetitive with respect to the identity confusion between the twins possibly because the same descriptive text used. But overall wonderful and relaxing for all ages.

poor

The narrator needs to read the other books in the whole series to find out how to pronounce the names and different places
