Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 2/19/2014

    " I like this book because it has a lot of action and suspense. I dont like this part in the book because nothing is happening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli | 2/18/2014

    " Terrific. A really wonderful series for young adults. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lars Guthrie | 2/16/2014

    " Still enchanted by this series, and still enjoying the narration by Allan Corduner. And really intrigued by all the mythical and religious allusions. Lady Wednesday, like the other morrow days Nix's asthmatic hero, Arthur Penhaligon, goes up against, represents one of the seven deadly sins. In her case, it's gluttony. And what a delightful representation of gluttony--an insatiable leviathan, a whale of impossible size. A greatly entertaining series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grant Raymond | 2/3/2014

    " This series is really starting to wear on me. I'm going to have to take a break for a little while. 2.5 stars, but I feel a little generous "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miik | 1/29/2014

    " So fantastic. I almost bailed on the series after the second book. Why is the second in a series always the weak link? I guess we'll never know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 1/29/2014

    " This book is good because it's goes between worlds like the real world and the fake world that created the universe. The main character is the same age as us and I understand some of the things that he does. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen Gurri | 1/15/2014

    " I was about to bail on this series after Grim Tuesday. Didn't know if I could hold on for the rest of the week. But Drowned Wednesday pulled me back in. The characters are great and I think it helps that Arthur has a confidant now. Makes the narrative easier. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 1/15/2014

    " Have Arthur nearly have his head chopped off! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Denning | 1/4/2014

    " Not quite as fond of this as the first 2 but still decent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/23/2013

    " This was one of my favorites so far in the series. I liked the ending a lot and I think this author is really creative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camille | 12/16/2013

    " Allan Corduner Allan Corduner Allan Corduner! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 12/12/2013

    " This adventure pulls in Arthur's friend Leaf from earth. At the end she is done with adventures, while Arthur must continue. Alos Arthur has been replaced by a mythling double. On to Sir Thursday. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelley | 12/5/2013

    " I had a hard time trying to get into this one. I found it quite boring most times, it couldn't grab my interest, and then other times it was boom boom boom, I couldn't put it down. So yeah, I'm not going to stop reading the series, I'm going to keep on going. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yenny | 11/23/2013

    " I do believe that I am reading the series a lot faster than I would have imagined and I believe that this is the result of how good the books are. I wont go ranting on like I have with all the rest of the series but this, was like the others, amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 HÃ¥vard Bjørnelv | 11/13/2013

    " Spennende "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi Willard | 11/1/2013

    " Ahoy, this takes Arthur out to see while trying to save his world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 6/14/2013

    " I really love these books and this one was really good. Arthur has a really great adventure on the Border Sea and battles pirates and giant whales. I can't wait to read the next one and see how Arthur gets all the keys. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Miller | 6/12/2013

    " This book is another book in the Keys to the Kingdom series and also another great book. It takes Arthur on another exciting adventure throughout " The House" and i would reccomend it to anyone who likes fantasy books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sinho | 1/24/2013

    " This book is awesome. But at the end, I realized how the three Trustees make me feel. I feel grateful to Arthur for healing Monday, I hate Tuesday, but I feel sorry for Wednesday. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Cocchiola | 11/23/2012

    " I was lost the first couple of chapters, then it got really good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana Gassaway | 10/10/2012

    " This series is now one of my favorite series of booksalong with the Pendragon books, the Percy jackson books, and the harry Potter books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia Driscoll | 7/12/2012

    " Each book in this series keeps getting better. Adventure on and in the high seas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ragan | 4/17/2012

    " In this third book Arthur begins to understand that he is not going to be able to go back home until he becomes the ruler of the universe. Once again Arthur is pushed into having another adventure this time on the high seas. Plus there are pirates! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krsten | 12/30/2011

    " I am loving this series. I was afraid it would be like Pendragon where each book is a rewrite of the previous one with a different dress. Nix is very creative and never writes the same thing twice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jose | 11/3/2011

    " Although I have to admit the book was completely different from the first two... and I mean completely... it was not good enough for a three star. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aidenpants | 9/23/2011

    " Wow! This series by Garth Nix is astoundingly imaginative and complex, and Drowned Wednesday is especially so. The ending is fabulously surprising. I literally gasped out loud at the last sentance, and could have kicked myself for not having the fourth book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 4/9/2011

    " turns out i'm not really into pirates and treasure ships, and all that. but the end was really good, i thought it was a fun read. not my favorite of the sereies so far, but i'll be cracking open Sir Thursday as soon as i'm done here... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 4/3/2011

    " The plot is the same in all these books.
    But, I still enjoy the characters and the new worlds that are invented for each day of the week.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yenny | 3/15/2011

    " I do believe that I am reading the series a lot faster than I would have imagined and I believe that this is the result of how good the books are. I wont go ranting on like I have with all the rest of the series but this, was like the others, amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 3/10/2011

    " more reason to keep reading. rats are kewl "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 1/11/2011

    " The resolutions and endings are a little simplified sometimes, but I like this series. I think it is a great kid fantasy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 1/9/2011

    " While the Keys to the Kingdom don't compare to the Abhorsen Trilogy, Nix provides the reader with a wonderfully rich world. The characters seem a bit flat, but Arthur is still an archetypal image for the boy within. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paige | 1/8/2011

    " Son and I liked this one much more than the Tuesday book of the series. Pirates, a huge whale and a sorcerer with moving tattoos on his face made this book a fun read- aloud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/2/2011

    " This was one of my favorites so far in the series. I liked the ending a lot and I think this author is really creative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 1/1/2011

    " Not quite as fond of this as the first 2 but still decent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha Anne | 12/30/2010

    " Drowned Wednesday is the best book so far from this series. The action is very exciting, which can be hard to pull off in a book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lonnie | 12/6/2010

    " My favorite one so far... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 11/12/2010

    " Huge improvement! Finally, by the third book the series is more than a modern/steampunk retelling of Alice in Wonderland. "
