Just As Good!

Well written follow up to the original. This title gives us a greater depth and understanding of our two main characters.

Generally ,very well read. Unfortunately, Woodman’s interpretation of a West Indian accent was a little off putting. However, don’t let that stop you for getting this title. This is a great book and very easy to listen to.

Beautiful, sad, and full of history

I can't believe a children's book made me cry. LOL! A very moving story. If you like this book be sure to read "The Cay". It is the first part of the story.

Great Stories!

The stories were great. Of course the book I read along with the audio book was different,being a different edition. Still,the novel was a good continuation of the first book.

Relaxing listening

The story continues from where "The Cay" left off following Phillip and his journey to gain his eyesight back. While also a prequel for Timothy telling the story how he became interested in the sea and his quest to become a captain of his own boat. And of course ultimately how he ended up crossing timelines with phillip in the first book.

Each chapter interchanges between each timeline continuing the story. It was easy to listen to and quite short. But I always wondered what happened next, as I orginally read this story when I was in primary school. It's taken me 15 years to find out the rest and I am glad I found this audio book to wrap it up.

Recommended if you enjoyed the first book.
