for the young young adult

I first read this book in my grade 10 year and loved it. read the whole series. I've circled back to it here some 10 years later and many parts of it made me cringe. To be expected I suppose. written vary predictably.

An Overlooked Masterpiece

The Wind Singer is an amazing children's book that doesn't have to be just for children. It is emotional and unique, not a rehashed story that's already been told. It is a fantasy story, though I think it falls more in the realm of dystopic fiction, without the harsh, futuristicness that is so often encountered in that genre. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever enjoyed YA lit at any point in their lives.

Delightfully Unique

This book was my childhood. It was so different than every other story, I love it! Great writing and an awesome story. I enjoyed it also as an adult, but it's easy enough for any young or old reader to find thrilling.

Still my favorite a decade later

I first read this series in high school when I discovered the first book in our library. I loved it then, and reread the series dozens of times. Hearing this was a wonderful experience that brought back good memories of why I love these books so much. Wonderefully narrated. Thank you!

most of the book is excellent

Unfortunately there were significant portions of the story that were too Alice in Wonderland for me. About a quarter of the book. The rest of the book really was excellent, which is why I made it to the end of the story.
The narration was excellent. I would definitely listen to Samuel West again .

Wonderful narration

A well-written fantasy/dystopia story for middle-grade readers. Samuel West is an excellent narrator. He interprets the story with wit and verve. All the characters, and there are many, are distinct and easy to recognize through his many subtle voice variations. Beautifully done.
