This was a wonderful listen/read. The magic was definitely still there and you get that feelijg the main character had in the last book of longing to be some where else. In the last book the main character spoils himself and leaves a bad taste in your mouth, but here it's all sort of redemption.
The only down side to this book is that early on the performer makes ALOT if edits that can be very jarring.
Liked everything, except for these tiny things especially the way Mr Bradley pronounces foreign words (macchiato, Peugeot..) and the Australian accent. Cringed a bit on every occasion.
The story is decent enough, my biggest complaint is every time he said sloth he pronounced it "slowth." Maybe I missed something but it's pretty annoying when you hear it.
Other than that the story is pretty good, albeit the authors continue to try and over sexualize everything. "It was pissing rain" seriously? There are such better words in the English language and yet they go for the cheap ones that invoke sexuality for no reason.
I thought the performance was well down a little slow and shaky in some parts but rather well done. I can not wait to listen to the final book in this series; and will be patiently waiting for more books like it.
Absolutely magical, ferocious, glamorous, fun, exciting, and gorgeous. It just keeps getting better and better with each story. I wish Lev Grossman would continue the series... I will be heartbroken when it concludes after The Magician's Land.
