"I was first drawn to this series because I liked Chris Colfer on Glee. I enjoyed the first two books, so naturally I wanted to give the third one a try. <br/><br/>Just as the first two books were, this one is a fun, easy read. It's a bit lengthy, and I thought some parts could have been edited down a bit, but that really wasn't a big deal. I never really felt like it dragged too much, or was boring. <br/><br/>This story is also extremely predictable. Though, as I said about the first two, that's not really a bad thing. It's written primarily for children, and things that are predictable for an adult are not necessarily going to be easily predicted by children. <br/><br/>As always, I enjoyed the narration by Chris. I like his voices, even if his British accents are not the best. They're fun. I particularly like his Red voice. I was glad that the girl with the braces wasn't around for the whole book. I could not stand his lispy mouth-full-of-braces voice. It was obnoxious! That's really the only negative I can think of in terms of the audiobook version.<br/><br/>I'm sure that when the fourth book's audiobook is available through my library I will give it a listen. As I said, it's a fun series, with a new spin on familiar fairy tale characters. Though I am a little more hesitant to see that we'll be venturing into Oz next time. Hopefully it will go well."
