3.0 out of 5 starsEnjoyable approach to CYOA but could use features
9 February 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
I've enjoyed sharing the Choose Your Own Adventure books with my children and we were excited to find these offered from Audible/Echo. We have just started exploring our first story, so these are early impressions. A few modifications could make the adaptations more accessible ov er Alexa. My youngest could use more time to make a choice as she often gets bumped out of the skill and has to restart where she left off. When restarting a section or a story, we would like a "skip" command to go straight to choices, so we don't have to listen to the description of what a CYOA story is or re-read a particular section again. Overall, we are enjoying this new skill & will definitely continue through more endings of the stories despite some less than smooth adaptations to the audible format. Hope Audible eventually adds more novels!
1.0 out of 5 starsIdea: GREAT! Geographiclly BLOCKED? BOOO!!!!
9 February 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
I was so excited! I jump instantly to try this option, I love Audible Audiobooks and this book series is ever present at home, is so fun! I don't have a dedicated device so Android App it is... AND THEN... BOOM! "This content is geaographically blocked"? WHAT? COME ON!!! I have to live in USA in order to BUY and hear/read a story? This is happening more and more often, with BOOKS, people, one of the things that most Custom Offices let pass without problem BECAUSE IS CULTURE! And Amazon and Audible are blocking the traffic? Amazon/Audible, your policies are becoming definitively unfriendly to we offshore customers. Please, expand your minds! Your loosing money!!! This is a WORLD WIDE WEB! Or it isn't?
It’s a fun idea, but on the yeti adventure, a different choice is linked to an ending with a large decision tree we already played out and there’s no way to backtrack or fast forward. In order to access other parts of the story we are having to play out all the small decisions in this tree again which is really frustrating to kids.
I guess this is the fault of the original authors, but a lot of the decisions are just “do you want to continue your adventure or go home”. It’s also annoying when Alexa asks you if you want to continue every 30 seconds.
3.0 out of 5 starsSkill does not launch if Freetime is enabled.

I enabled this skill, but it simply will not open. We have tried "Alexa open choose your own adventure" about a hundred times, along with other possible variations and the echo just does not recognize this prompt and will not open the skill. Tried disabling and reenabling. Nothing seems to be working. Update: now seems to only work on one out of 3 echos. I'm not sure why or how to fix it or get the other 2 echos to recognize the skill. Final update: Skill was great when it worked. My kids and I really enjoyed it. Being able to see what would have happened if you'd made a different choice was a good addition. That's what I used to do when reading the books as a kid. The description of this skill should note that this skill does not work with Freetime enabled. I fianlly had to figure that out myself. I had to remove Freetime from my kids echos for them to use this skill. Annoying to have to turn that off to use the skill and then reenable it.
4.0 out of 5 starsGood app, more books would be nice...

It's cool to have a free audio version of the first couple Choose Your Own Adventure books available, my only gripes are the frequent interruptions by Alexa asking if you want to continue and requiring a response...it's WAY more cumbersome than just turning a page or clicking a link was, and I'd tell her if I wanted to quit, also the fact that there are only 2 books available so far. Otherwise it's coming along great, I hope that this is still a work in progress and that it gets even better...so yeah, still a bit of room for improvement and expansion of this project. Looking forward to updates, thanks!
