The narrative switches between several characters, it helps make for a more well rounded tale. You really get to see what each person's motivations are throughout the book.
There are several plot points that are lefts vague, no real explanation of the powers. Where do they come from? Why do only some people have them? What was the back story of Bronson and Cindy?
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Nathan Beatty, who does a great job with the pace. I enjoyed his read most of the time, it was just the villains I had a problem with. It would have been more of a surprise twist if the voices had been different. It was too obvious for my liking.
Overall this is a fascinating series and has great potential for tween boys and girls. Most of it comes from Bronson's POV but the parts with Cindy really mix in well. I cannot wait to see what happens next for these kids. There are loose ends still out there, but I am sure they will be tied in the next book.
Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, ratings and opinions are my own.
At it's core it has several very good and important life lessons for the younger folks and older ones will find themselves transported to a younger time. Ever fantasize about having super powers and saving the day? I have and this story helped me revisit that part of myself again and I really enjoyed that ride.
There is a bigger mystery and surprises to be found in Colta City and it is clear the author has some interesting ideas in store for us in future adventures. Highest recommendation!
What did you love best about Dogboy?
Move over Spiderman, your time is done. Dogboy is here! What I loved best about Dogboy is that he does not have radioactive powers or futuristic mechanical devices. Yes he does have developing mystical powers, but his base character is one who has to develop his skills based on his interests and knowledge. He has to PRACTICE real skills that anyone actually could do!
What did you like best about this story?
It is fresh, and while aimed at a younger YA audience in my opinion, I didn't matter to me, and was still fun listen.
What does Nathan Beatty bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I often cast actors that I know in various parts of a book for my inner voice. Nathan brings his own cast, with excellent, interesting and consistent voices, so my work is much easier. I just have to enjoy!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
This is a book that I wanted to listen to consistently over number of days, deliberately listening to this over the radio while driving.
Any additional comments?
Highly recommend and I am looking forward to the rest of the series.This audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com
