    Would you try another book from Elizabeth Moon and/or Jennifer Van Dyck?

    NO


    What could Elizabeth Moon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book could have been half as long and covered that same ground. It was a 12 hour prolog

    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.

    What disappointed you about A Discovery of Witches?

    it was a 24 hour book and there was maybe 2 hours of actual interesting content
    tthis book just dragged on and on.

    I would definitely characterized this book as a chic book. it was a 24 hour romance with a few breaks of magic.

    I am glad Audible has instituted be worry free listen guarantee because I am definitely going to return this book

  • The Shadow of the Torturer: The Book of the New Sun, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 9 mins)

    Story
    (482)

    The Shadow of the Torturer is the first volume in the four-volume epic, the tale of a young Severian, an apprentice to the Guild of Torturers on the world called Urth, exiled for committing the ultimate sin of his profession - showing mercy towards his victim.

    Gene Wolfe's "The Book of the New Sun" is one of speculative fiction's most-honored series. In a 1998 poll, Locus Magazine rated the series behind only "The Lord of the Rings" and The Hobbit as the greatest fantasy work of all time.

    Darwin8u says: "Original, Difficult and Well-Crafted."
    "One of the worst in ten years of listening"

    What disappointed you about The Shadow of the Torturer?

    Story lacked little to keep a reader interested. A non - fiction autobiography would have been more interesting.

    What a waste of a credit!!!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration was the only good thing about this book
