This book is full of action and things to think about. It can be enjoyed by adults as well as kids. It has several twists and turns that neither young or old will see coming. Furthermore most people are not totally evil or totally good. Grey characters make for a more true to life story, even though it is a fantasy. Some bad people can change to good. There are some great lessons for all to learn. The lessons are shown, not told. This book is preach free.
Narrator is very good and I will continue the series.

The characters were well thought out, and the dialogue engaging. The main theme of the story certainly was serious, but the book didn't have any graphic content that I wouldn't allow a 4th grader or up to hear. I was pleasantly surprised because I don't usually enjoy futuristic, fantastical stories.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Unwanteds to be better than the print version?
kept the kids rivited in the car, didn't hear a peep on a long motorway drive. in fact, they were desperate to get moving again to hear more! I'd call this a "page turner"
What other book might you compare The Unwanteds to, and why?
it would appeal to the Harry potter type audience, eg boy discoveres a magic world he never new existed - and turns out to be quite special!
Which character – as performed by Simon Jones – was your favourite?
the old man is definitely my favorite!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
when the children are sent away and considered "unwanted", and the lack of reaction from the families
Any additional comments?
a nice story and a good read to keep the kids entertained
