Terry Brooks seems to have found his mature voice in this particular story. I've read or listened to all of his books, but for some reason this particular one resonates more with my 60 year old self. Phil Giante is an excellent reader; I listen to this while driving or puttering around the house, which makes this a spoonful of sugar to all of that.
I liked the transition of old world people to magical world beings. It's interesting to look back on old faery tales and think any of those creatures or beings could have been human at one time.
I had so wanted to listen to what sounded like a wonderful Victorian mystery. Unfortunately, the sound quality was horrifyingly bad. I couldn't even finish it. I was disappointed to say the least.
