I am a passionate devourer of chocolate and books. I also listen to audio books and drink chocolate. When I die, I don't want to be embalmed, I want to be dipped!

Towering - Alex Flinn,  Casey Holloway,  Ann Marie Gideon,  Andrew Sweeney This review was originally posted on my Alaskan Bookie Website at:http://alaskanbookie.com/review/towering/My ReviewThis was an interesting fairytale retelling about the story of Rapunzel. I didn’t like that there were so many unanswered questions left by the author. While I was listening I kept asking ‘why this was happening’, or ‘what happened to cause that’ that it really took away from the enjoyment of listening to the story. The author never does go back and fill in the blanks either. I felt that this story was something like a getting a chocolate candy bar from a vending machine with no chocolate in. You knew there should be chocolate but … it is empty. :-(Narration Review:This story was narrated by Casey Holloway, Ann Marie Gideon, Andrew Sweeney. Having different narrators for the different parts is nice, because then you are sure who is speaking. The different narrators did a good job with the story and sounded age appropriate for the characters they portrayed.
