Great book

Alright so I’m a 12 yr old and I loved this book. I have the book and now the audio as well so I’m like cool let’s hear it! I liked the hilarious voice of Landor I mean he’s an old man like 50 yrs old and he sounds crazy!!! If your going on a road long road trip not recommended only because it’s a short book. If you want a road trip book get tomorrow war by J L Bourne. But I really enjoyed this book and thank you chuck black. Oh and one more thing: WHY IS KENDRICK NEVER MENTIONED AGAIN IN THE OTHER BOOKS!!!!OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOF!!!!!

Descent story. But be warned, this a story for young teens. Well worth the cost for that age.

I'm shocked by the high reviews

What would have made Sir Kendrick and the Castle of Bel Lione better?

If the story was about the prince instead of Kendrick, given how many pages were devoted to how awesome the prince is, i have to wonder, why are we reading about Kendrick?

What do you think your next listen will be?

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrator was ok, but the prose seemed disjointed

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

This was a short book. It felt like a side story instead of an intro to the world and characterthat the first book of a series should be. After listening, i still don't know who the villain is and why the hero is worth caring about.

The characters seem shallow and one dimensional. Evil is evil because it's evil. This was fine a century ago, but such characters seems ridiculous in the 21st century.

Middle School morality tale from a Christian Book

What disappointed you about Sir Kendrick and the Castle of Bel Lione?

Superficial, simplistic, not written for an adult, and weak even for the target age.

Would you ever listen to anything by Chuck Black again?

no

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

Narration was not bad, but hate background music during narration.

Any additional comments?

Found it bad enough to be amusing and finish the 5 hr.

Didactic and violent

Too violent for younger kids and didactically offensive for older kids. The analogy is theologically accurate but virtue must be an act of sanctification not learned like a math fact.

Inspiring and riveting!

I loved these books as a preteen and after listening again with my wife recently I was reminded of how valuable it's message is. This story is that of courage and conviction in the face of great evil. It shows the true face evil behind the alluring deception. Only through the power of the Prince can men and women be truly set free from their bondage!

Awesome 1st book

Absolutely loved this first book. It was so good. I had ditched it for about 3 years always finding what I thought should be better. But we have listened to so many books we decided to give it a try !! I was mad I didn’t listen to it sooner. It was fantastic. Storyline and all. Characters were great. It was a clean Christian book with no pushy overtones. If your a Christian you will love it. And if your not a Christian you will still love it. It’s a great story that will touch the hearts of all. Enough action to keep me from wanting to go to sleep at night !!
