“A great energetic tale of adventure!
I truly enjoyed how the narrator gave energy and life to each character with unique voices each with their own cadence.” – Trevor H.

“The hallmark of any good book is the book’s ability to vividly transport the reader into the world of the characters – ie as if the reader was actually there. The Crow’s Nest is such a book and is a lot of fun for the reader. Each step of the journey, is a feast for reader, rich in description and imagination.I highly recommend The Crow’s Nest. Charles Parker has written an engaging story and Becky Parker (his daughter) provides voice narration that’s flawless. The characters come alive and each voice is distinct. I’m looking forward to listening to another audiobook narrated by Becky Parker.” – Mike L.

    Charles Parker’s ‘The Crow’s Nest’ is an enthralling tale set in the dystopian future of 2049, where readers are plunged into the submerged streets of New Orleans. This gripping narrative follows the journey of two courageous siblings, Will and Sara Anchor, as they navigate their canoe through treacherous waters on a mission to save their ailing mother.

    Parker masterfully combines elements of adventure with a poignant commentary on climate change, creating a world that is both hauntingly realistic and vividly imaginative.

    The book excels in its ability to weave suspense and emotional depth, making it a compelling read for those who enjoy futuristic adventures with a heart. ‘The Crow’s Nest’ is not just a story of survival; it’s a journey of resilience and hope that leaves a lasting impression.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a novel that is both thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining.
