    Any additional comments?

    I was so happy I found a writer who can actually write....so I looked on the net to learn who he or she (actually I thought "this must be a she-Joe, so clever to describe women`s feelings...) is (but I wish I didn`t, you`ll understand why). Please, if you don`t know who Joe Hill is, wait until the end to search about his/her where-how-who-abouts. Congratulations to the author, I`m sooo glad I met you and yr books! I will read all I can find and hope for more.

    "Creepy"

    Kate Mulgrew is perfect to narrate this very creepy tale. It's a great story and I probably shouldn't say this, but it could have been written by his dad!

    "Not my cup of tea."
    What did you like best about NOS4R2? What did you like least?

    The reader, great performance.
    The story was not at all what I expected and wasn't really something I would have listened to had I have known.


    What does Kate Mulgrew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The charictorisation of the players, very, very good.

    Story
    "Very good as an audiobook"
    What made the experience of listening to NOS4R2 the most enjoyable?

    The Narrator Kate Mulgrew, she actually adds to the reading experience.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of NOS4R2?

    The first chapter. Eerily written and so well read, I actually got scared listening to it alone at night. That must be a first for me.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Mulgrew – was your favourite?

    Charlie Manx


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Victoria first met Lou whilst running away.

    If you planned to read this book, get the audio instead as it adds an extra level of dimension.

    Story
    "I loved the parallel world"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was ok and I liked the visuals given into both worlds but the narrator wasn't for me! When I downloaded this book I thought it was more adult based fantasy...with blood curdling horror-alas that was not to be :)

    Limited, interesting book but when you get to the end, you've been nowhere

    In summary, I survived it, but forgotten it now

    Story
    "Rich, thrilling, brilliantly read story"
    Where does NOS4R2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love reading but an audiobook brings a greater dimension if the reader is good. Kate Mulgrew is absolutely brilliant. She has the kind of voice that can span genders and ages and bring colour and life to characters in the most apposite way.

    It's a great story, exciting, scary and with a very tender love story running right through it. Not soppy, just tender and loving. Recommend this highly, it's one of those stories that you just have to keep listening to. This is a writer I hadn't heard of before, try it, you won't regret it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There is a real story here and each character is rich and engaging.


    What about Kate Mulgrew’s performance did you like?

    Absolutely everything. She is the best narrator I've ever heard.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It chilled me with its scariness. It made me happy and sad with the rich relationships and it was totally engaging.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it, it's fabulous.
