Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

WHAT IS ADVENTURES IN ODYSSEY?
It’s exciting, character-building audio entertain-ment for the whole family―brought to life by an award-winning team that uses storytelling to teach lasting truths. So grab your imagination and find out why over 20 million Adventures in Odyssey products have been distributed worldwide.

VOLUME 57: A Call to Something More
Life is full of surprises―some that are welcome, some that aren’t. A trip in the Imagination Station is usually fun, but three generations from the Parker family are surprised to find that it can be life-changing, too. And who doesn’t love the circus, especially when it involves a mystery, sabotage, and betrayal? And Connie’s life is turned upside-down by an unexpected phone call, triggering major changes for everyone around her. In laughter or tears, you can count on the crew at Whit’s End to make life’s surprises fun, exciting, touching, and rich with lessons from God.

Featuring the vocal talents of Chris Anthony, Townsend Coleman, Jess Harnell, Katie Leigh, Kimmy Robertson, Will Ryan, and Andre Stojka.

Definitely, as with all odyssey albums, it's Christian through and through. If you are not a Christian, it will probably be hard for you to enjoy this.
Pros:
Introduction some old characters was smooth as you please, but with enough suddenness to make you hunger for more. Connie's reactions in Life Expectancy were realistic, and her Dad was great. The script was amazing, and the acting was superb. The sound designers seem creative and alive at finding new sounds, in fact, the entire crew seems like their having so much fun making this, which gives it a good, worthy feeling.
Cons:
In 'Your Servant is Listening' a woman gives birth, and though someone goes to help, the point of view doesn't actually go near, but it does seem a bit intense for some. /: Life expectancy is a very rough, harrowing journey through grief, and though sprinkled with tasteful humor, it still presents a grim overshadowing. Death is discussed very seriously. In The Pilot, there is some drama as a young boy is led to believe his mother will die (she doesn't) and many young ones fall seriously ill. These aren't exactly cons, but they are thing to consider. The Parker family seems to bicker frequently, and I did grow weary of it after awhile, though it is (usually) resolved in the end. These aren't things I'd change my five stars for, but this seemed like a newer, grimmer odyssey in a way, and it felt slightly more depressing.

Once again the folks that put these episodes together have done it with clear understanding of our need for our Lord and Savior in our life. The episode where there is a death is done very well - with honesty, care, compassion and an understanding that one day we will all die...and that we all need to have total faith in Jesus to spend eternal life with Him.

I own all 57 volumes of the Adventures in Odyssey albums, I have no children, I am 53 and am a Youth Director in our Catholic parish. These CDs have truly helped me to reach the teens, and adults, when they struggle with many of lifes challenges. All the episodes in this album, like some many of the others produced, keep our focus on Jesus and our need to want to really know His love for us and what we need to do to understand that love.

I came back to the car to find my daughter crying while listening to one of the episodes. This is an emotional one that really affected all of us long time listeners. I love the stories and Godly content.

I loved this album a lot. AIO has a tendency to put out very good family friendly products. I really enjoyed the cameo by the get in the show winner. I really hope she is able to return in her role again. I don't really want to say what she did because it would be a spoiler but I think she really added depth to the entire story of adventures in odyssey. While I genuinely enjoy Katie Leigh and Will Ryan as Connie and Eugene there is a need for some younger characters that are maybe not necessarily kids to be on the show. I hope this is an indication of some of the interesting stories to come.

My kids and I have listened to the first disc about 20 times; they never seem to get tired of it! My son, age 10, listened to the 3rd disc on his own and told me, "I don't think my little sister (age 6) should listen to this one. It would make her really sad." He is absolutely right! So you may want to preview it if you have especially sensitive younger children in the house. My daughter would be devastated to hear about Connie's loss. That being said, I personally loved the episodes dealing with loss. They are very well done. I can't wait for the next album!

Every night before bed my children listen to Adventures in Odyssey stories, and they repeat them dozens of times. A trusted source of truth, you can let your kids listen and not worry about the content. I do find that the stories are thought provoking and my children will often have deeper questions for me. A great conversation always follows!

We love Adventures in Odyssey! We travel a lot and my daughter loves to listen to them on the long car drives. She also listens to them at night before bed. The CD was packaged nicely and it shipped very quickly (although my daughter was very impatient waiting for it!)
