Title: THREE INTO ONE

Author: Julie Elizabeth Powell

Type of Book: Audiobook – Unabridged

Length: 21 minutes

Genre: Science Fiction, Short Story

Release Date: July 3, 2015

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This audiobook is extremely short. The entire thing only lasts twenty-one minutes, but those twenty-one minutes pack in a lot of story.

Thomas is an odd child. He has always been this way. Then, one night at the age of seven, he experiences something that affects him in a very strange way.

This event not only makes him seem even weirder than he had before, but it also alters him physically.

What happened that night? How does a seven year old wake up in the middle of a forest with no memory of how he got there?

The answers to those questions will affect not only Thomas, but the rest of humanity.

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook and was surprised to find out that it is narrator Phil Mayes first professional narration. He did a wonderful job in voicing not only the children’s voices but also as the voice of the third-party storyteller. He speaks clearly and is easily understood which is important for the listener. I rate the narration as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The only thing I disliked about this audiobook was the story’s ending. I felt that it could have been wrapped up in a much neater fashion. I assume that the author left the story unfinished for a reason. I understand that this tactic leaves the listener able to speculate on the various outcomes for the story and it’s characters. But, to me this audiobook actually seemed like it was the opening chapter for a novel and that the listener was left ‘hanging’ just as the story seemed about to get even more interesting.

With that said, if author Julie Elizabeth Powell ever decides to turn this story into a full-length novel, I would be very interested in reading it. It is for that reason that I rate “Three Into One” as 4 out of 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
