intricate plot but written well enough that it doesn't leave you confused. And so thrilled to have James Marsters back as narrator.
Harry, as usual.
variation in accent, intonation, rhythm in that gives each character his/her own voice.
When hell freezes over, a wizard is your only hope.
unsure - Ms. Ikeda had some awkward pauses in places that made me have to skip back a few seconds to make sure I hadn't missed something. I can't imagine I'll purchase, borrow, etc., the final book of the series. I'm just not compelled to find out what happens next.
she does an excellent job keeping different characters' voices consistent through the book, which helps the listener keep track of conversations that might involve multiple characters.
the story is a disappointing follow-up to the first novel, with choices that made me say, "Really? You're making her XXX? Really???" out-loud as I listened to the book. Some sections of the text felt disconnected from the rest, leaving me waiting to see if it would make sense later in the book. And I continue to bristle at Diana's willingness to let Matthew be a controlling obsessive brute...it's good for the characters to be flawed and all, but I don't feel that Matthew has enough redeeming qualities for me to hope things turn out well for him in the end.
narrative difficult to follow, boring narrator, couldn't get past the first 5 chapters. Such a disappointment after a fun romp through The Eyre Affair.
Fisher Steven is my new favorite narrator. I've listened to several of Moore's books to date, and this is by far my favorite. Likeable characters, a fantastic story (in every sense of the word), and the type of book that makes you cheer for the hero. I laughed my way to work every day on the subway...a great way to start a day. Highly recommended.
