A Modern Witch was entertaining at best and confusing at worst. The narrator tried her best to make chat conversations understandable without calling the name of the character before every statement. The story was light and consentrated on relationships and characters. There was a lot of repetition, and, in my opinion, underestimating the reader. For a light listen, this was good, but the listeners should not put their hopes too high.
I was positively surprised with this novella and it's amusing atmosphere. I was expecting a serious story and ended up giggling like a little girl. All of the characters, some more imaginary than the other, were the salt and pepper, but the story itself could have been more original. There were some great pieces and ideas, but it didn't fulfill it's potential. It has only been a couple of weeks since I listened this, and allready I have forgotten most of the story.
I've truly enjoyed the previous clockwork century novels, and this one didn't dissapoint me. The story wasn't quite as good as the other, but still definately one worth reading/listening. I really like that all of the books work well as stand alone. You can easily enjoy this book even if you haven't read the previous ones. There is a little repetition of the known facts for those acquinted with the clockwork century world, but it doesn't bother too much.
For those, who love steampunk, independent heroines, and adventure, this is a very good choice.
