    Story
    (106)

    Cassel comes from a family of curse workers people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they'e all criminals. Many become mobsters and con artists. But not Cassel. He hasn't got magic, so he's an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail - he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago

    Dave says: "Holly Black's Next Great Trick"
    "Entertaining and with a few unexpected plot twists"

    Story
    Would you listen to White Cat again? Why?

    Yes, I enjoyed the story and the characters enough to have fun listening to it again. I will probably listen to it again (as well as the second book) right before the third book is released to not get lost in the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Predictably, the main character Cassel. I found him to be the most relatable and amusing character, the other main ones I didn't seem to be able to connect with so much until the second book in the series. Cassel is smart, funny and charming but still obviously flawed and somewhat tortured and mysterious so he makes for a realistic and interesting read.


    Have you listened to any of Jesse Eisenberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm very familiar with his work acting in movies but I had never heard his performance reading and audiobook before this one. I think he did a very good job.


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

    In some parts of the book (particularly the ending) yes, I wanted to read the whole thing in one sitting, but in others the pace slows down and I was perfectly capable to put it down and read some more latter.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to the sequels.
