    Years ago, the magnificent dragon queen Tintaglia forged a bargain with the inhabitants of the treacherous Rain Wilds. In exchange for her protection against enemy invaders, the humans promised to protect an unhatched brood of dragons. But when the dragons emerged as weak and misshapen hatchlings unable to fend for themselves, dragonkind seemed doomed to extinction. When even Tintaglia deserted the crippled young dragons, the Rain Wilders abandoned the burden of caring for the destructive and ravenous creatures.

    What disappointed you about Blood of Dragons?

    Much of the times was spent whining about love triangles and teenage-level angst. The narration was annoying and the voices she attempted to act always sounded so ridiculous that it was like she was making fun of the characters. Her choices to make one person sound like a shy little girl, or another person with a phony accent seemed completely random and not related to the characters' descriptions. Several hours in, I started using the 30 second skip generously to spare myself so suffering. I wish this had no cost money. Then I would have just turned it off and found the paper copy.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Anne Flosnik’s performances?

    NO

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Neverwhere to be better than the print version?

    No. It was good, but a book is a book, and it's worth it to read if you have the time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ....this is like a children's book report.


    Have you listened to any of Neil Gaiman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Neil Gaiman did a perfect job with narration. Could not believe he was so talented
