...and my very favorite audiobook. I had already read the book three times when I listened to it, and was delighted that I learned and noticed new twists and details about the story, characters and 'meta-story'. The performances are perfect.
I'm a little bit envious of those who haven't yet read or listened to this book - there's nothing else like it, and you're in for an engrossing, entertaining, and transformative experience. Seriously.
The writing is brilliant, the characters powerful, the narration masterful. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this book, and this performance. I am sad that it's over!
The writing is luminous and expressive and cross-sensory, the characters real and compelling, the storyline tight and exciting. These might be YA characters, but Ms Oliver never dumbs down a single word.
The narration is enjoyable, engaging and believable, with just enough differentiation between characters to be able to follow the story, and never gets in its own way.
I discovered this book by downloading the sample first chapter in the "Tournament of Audiobooks" and will be forever grateful to Audible for introducing me to an author and cast of characters I'll never forget.
