    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Barbara says: "A feast for the mind and imagination"
    "Reader s performance ruining a decent story"

    Would you try another book from Deborah Harkness and/or Jennifer Ikeda?

    Maybe harkness. Not Ikeda her voice has an incredibly narrow range with only 3 different inflections. Her speaking and intonation are so monotonous that I can't tell one sentence from the next and start to zone out. She s trying to sound haughty and comes off ridiculous.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Deborah Harkness? Why or why not?

    Maybe
