I wasn't sure about listening to this book, but after reading the other reviews I decided to give it a try. I was unexpectedly surprised by the "old detective" feel to this sci-fi book. It was a joy to listen to and I expect it will be on my "repeat listen" list in the future.
This story has been compared by others to
Both are excellent narrators that bring life to an excellent line up of characters.
Old Jack was my favorite character. He ended up tying all of the characters in the story together.
As I said before I cannot wait for the next installment of the Clifton Chronicles!
I highly recommend this book.
I read all of the reviews before listening to this book. They all claimed it to be the "next big thing". I do not agree. Probably the only reason why I made it through the whole book was the excellent narrator, Jim Dale. I found the storyline to be tedious and boring with too many loose ends never resolved. Hopefully, my next book to listen to will be another narrated by Mr. Dale.
This book sat on my wish list far too long! Now that I finally read it, I was sad to learn Katherine Howe has no other books posted on audible.com.
I first downloaded and listened to this book in 2006. I have listened to this book at least 3 times and love it more each time. The premise of this book is simple, but you will need to dig a little deeper to get at the message.
A Hat Full of Sky was a very cute and entertaining listen...I wish there was another volume in this series.
Make sure read Wee Free Men first!!!
