An all round well written and read book. Nice detail of historical events and locations. I enjoyed the reading - enough accents without the overblown hard to understand nuances many readers bring. I did not want it to end. Very realistic as in that all the endings of the inner stories did not all turn out the way we might want them to… gave the book a very realistic feel.
While parts of the writing may seem to be a bit 'young adult' there a few steamy parts that I would not want my teen nieces to hear - but nothing too x rated. An all round fun read.
The narrator was easy to listen to and the Cinderella theme was not too overbearing.
I have read these authors individually and now in a book of shorts - they shine! I would recommend this anthology to any who want a good listen, and especially if you want quicker bites for short commutes or...
I found myself laughing out loud at times and not wanting to put this one down. It was lighter than some in this genre but still very firmly within the expectations.
with twists and turns I was not expecting!
The series was beginning to pale for me - this book set it afire again.
Quite early in the book there is a distressing development - I almost put the book down thinking I didn't really want a stressful book. After half a day though, I found I had become so attached to the main character that I had to come back to the book...
I am so very glad I listened all the way through. You may be too.
This book has lodged in my brain and I will never be the same. I found it hard to sleep a couple of nights thinking how I would handle the situations presented in the book.
There is a feeling of reality to the story that is difficult it these days of overblown horror novels.
The writing is still great; and engrossing enough to help me over the abrupt change of narrators...
I can't say - it would give too much away about the story...
After listening to all 12 other Dresdan books you are expecting characters to sound a certain way, have a certain cadence to their speech, for names to be pronounced a certain way. I am not sure Glover heard any of Marsters Dresdan work but it might have helped to make the transition easier on us.
Done too soon
the twists and turns and the ongoing humor
He is so good and consistant all the way thru the series. You really get to recognise the different characters.
There were some Dresdan episodes! lets bring them back!
The book is a nice uplifting tale, and while a bit contrived; I enjoyed the storyline. However, the mouth noises of the narrator were distracting.
