I thought the storyline was awesome. I love reading/listening to a twist on traditional fairy tales.
I don't really have a favorite characters. Although the storyline is great, the characters fell flat for me. They were one dimensional.
Unless Chris is a woman in disguise, he did NOT narrate this story! The narrator, whoever she was, was too flat and boring to me. She read too fast (even at 1x speed she was still quite fast and that was annoying). Also, all her character voices sounded the same. To be honest, I quit listening to her and went back to reading the book.
I didn't really have an extreme reaction but I will say that the writing style annoyed the heck out of me. Some things just didn't make sense. For example he wrote that a character was "beaming with sympathy". Okay, to beam is to smile and if you are smiling, then how are you showing sympathy? There were many sections in the book written this way. I heard the authors writing great improved in the next book. I can only hope this is true!
Please inform people of the true narrator. I would love to hear Chris Colfer narrate
