I'm sure I'll listen to The Scorpio Races again. I loved it when I read it, and I loved it again when I heard it told to me via audiobook.
I love all the relationships and characters in this story. The island of Thisby is a character all its own and has very different relationships with all who live on it. Sean Kendrick and Puck Connolly are wonderful protagonists who I came to care deeply about along with the other Connolly children, George Holley, and of course, Dove and Corr.
I thought both narrators were perfectly cast. Since I read the book before I listened to it, I already had an idea of what the characters sounded like. I felt that the voices in my head were just more realistically expressed when I listed to the book.
There were several lines in this story that made me tear up as I read them and again as I listened to them. Some just because they were beautiful expressions of a concept. Stiefvater's exquisite use of language expresses the character's emotions so well, that I would find it impossible not to feel along with them.
