Format: Hardcover
The Kane Chronicles is an excellent series by one of my favorite young adult authors. The Percy Jackson Series is one of my favorites of all time and although this one wasn't quite as good, I still thoroughly enjoyed it and rate it just as high because it was a little bit more unique in that it covered a topic that is less known compared to Greek Mythology. I knew very little about Egyptian mythology and this series really does an excellent job of introducing dozens of Egyptian gods throughout all three books and I did find it very interesting! The action, suspense, and twists were plentiful, as I expected from Riordan, and I did get sucked into the story. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a fun, fast-paced read who is interested in learning some new mythology!

I was surprised how long each book was. I picked it up to give us something to listen to on the 24 hours drive from FL to IA and back again. We didn't listen to it the whole time, but quite a bit. We only finished book 1 and got through part of book 2 on our trip. The book was great as my kids didn't fuss and fight when it was on.
We all loved the books, my 4 year old, 7 year old and two adults.
We have no complaints on issues playing.

The two readers chosen for these audiobooks are excellent. They do a great job of voice acting the roles rather than simply reading the text. A great purchase and hours of enjoyment.

Definitely best read in order so I am glad I bought the combined trilogy. Excellent character development and language usage, though the kindle editors could have done a better job. Don't let the bad editing put you off. Just read over the errors as the sentence should be or as it makes sense to you. One error that bothered me but would be unknown to most Western readers involves the description of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia. I recently spent 4 years in Russia with nearly a month in St. Petersburg. If you ever get the chance to go there DO! It's a beautiful city with centuries of European and Russian history including the home of the first Russian naval academy. I walked near the Hermitage nearly every day and, yes, it is so huge it would take at least a week, if not more, to see all of the exhibits and some of them are truly incredible! However, as of 2010 it was definitely not white and gold but bright aqua!! As an adult reader and former middle school teacher I found this series highly entertaining (enough to make it hard to put down) and I learned a great deal about the Egyptian gods, their roles, and how they fit in the lives of ancient Egyptians, as well as interesting facts about modern places in Egypt and elsewhere all while enjoying a well done great read! I also love the rather unique alternating point of view recorded journaling between Sadie and Carter format. A great way to encourage kids to journal their own experiences, either written or recorded. You never know when a life experience may become a jumping point for a future book and it's nice to have that experience described and documented at the time when it's fresh in your memory! I highly recommend the books for advanced upper elementary through adult readers.Read more ›

I have adored most of Rick Riordan's books and the Kane Chronicles are no exception. They are read superbly by the narrators. And MP3 CDs are a wonderful format for most devices. I just copied it over to my Android phone and it worked wonderfully!

I did my research and it was by far the cheapest and quality way to go directly with Amazon. :) It was 29$ or 30$ elsewhere. On here, I got it for 27$ with FREE SHIPPING! It was handled with care, packaged and shipped fast. You DO get posters! But they're like mini posters and the front and back of the two you get have characters on each side. I got Sadie, Carter, Horus, and Isis. Though, I'm not sure if it's different for everyone?

I read the whole TRILOGY right after I took off the plastic casing! I should've spanned my time out to read it... but I was anxious. Especially since I already read Rick's new addition to Percy Jackson series, "The Mark of Athena." Anyway, yes! I finished reading these books within 2 days and I ABSOLUTELY loved it! I want more, though. Ha-ha.

(There are spoilers, so don't read beyond this if you haven't read it yet!)

For Carter, I actually liked that the author gave him and his sister a bit of sibling jealousy and resentment--I know this all too well myself. Though, I found it nice that he didn't make it overdone with their "Why does he/she get everything and I don't!" sort of tiff. But he was a bit of a coward and lagged behind a lot in the beginning. I also enjoyed that both siblings were of different skin tones, that brought a whole new diversity of "Are you really related to your sister?" and always looked at Sadie like she's an alien for having lighter skin.

For Sadie, I loved that the author didn't make her into an annoying little girl NOR have that "I'm rich, so I'm a snob" sort of personality. I LOVE the fact that she lived in London and she talked British!
