    Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

    What disappointed you about Shadow and Bone?

    it sounds like cheesy fan-fic with phoney russian words and names thrown in every once in a while. add romance from a girl's perspective and no thanks.


    Has Shadow and Bone turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yup.


    What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

    good voice. excellent enunciation.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    anger at wasting money.


    Any additional comments?

    don't buy it unless you're a teenager that likes really bad fantasy.

    Story
    (7)

    Jonathan Barnes, a shining new talent in the UK, intrigues listeners with his "wonderfully original concoction[s] of grotesque humour and sparkling prose" (Guardian) - providing a literary "cabinet stuffed with curiosities" (Observer). In The Domino Men, an ordinary office-working Brit discovers that he may be destined to wipe out the wicked House of Windsor.

    Andrew says: "excellent creepy modern fantasy."

    What did you love best about The Domino Men?

    it's the sequel to the somnambulist but you don't need to have read the somnambulist to enjoy and understand this one. it's dark, funny, creepy, fantastical, cool.


    What other book might you compare The Domino Men to and why?

    the somnambulist. same series and author.


    What does Gerard Doyle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he's so damned posh.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yup.


    Any additional comments?

    buy it.
