Superb novel and great narration.
Interesting and enjoyable how the author frames the lives of 4 stories of 4 characters with each coming together in the end. The ending could have been weaved into a better pattern and ended so abruptly.
An absolute must listen. My 11 year old daughter couldn’t stop listening nor could I.
This was an excellent story for an audiobook! I think I enjoyed it more this way than if I'd read the words on pages instead. Sometimes having a little music on an audiobook seems cheesy, but in this case, it definitely enhanced the experience. Feeling connected to the characters was easy. Wondering about their fates, and seeing how it all fit together in the end, made for an enthralling and satisfying tale. "Echo" tugged at my heart and left me feeling inspired and optimistic.
I read this book and loved it, but listening to it with my 6th grade students was an extraordinary experience. The music featured in the characters' stories was performed so beautifully. My students and I were entertained by the harmonica, swept up by the orchestra, and sometimes moved to tears. I felt this audio version allowed my students access to an experience they never would have received had I just provided my own read aloud.This performance of Echo has opened up new worlds of music, compassion, and inspiration to my kids. Thank you!
It was a wonderful, lovely written book and I loved it!
Excellent production of a thought provoking, educational, and clever novel.
Each story is told with a passion that draws you in emotionally. I was able to envision each character - I was happy when they were happy and sad when they were sad. Good Job!
This is an amazing book! Pam Munoz Ryan has done it again. Echo keeps you engaged from the first page to the last... My vote for the Newbery!!
