    "Too sweet!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Course of True Love (and First Dates) to be better than the print version?

    I think each version give different feelings. The print version is sweet, and listening it being read makes the story feels sweeter. They "support" each other. ^^


    What did you like best about this story?

    Magnus descriptions about Alec, to Jace, and about Magnus feelings and hopes for the "Stupid sexy Shadowhunter" ^^


    Have you listened to any of Gareth David-Lloyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't. This is the first time, and I quickly like it. Thank you for the great job!


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

    Yes, it did. I have a good laugh ^^


    Any additional comments?

    I love Magnus. I love Alec. I love it when they are together. Stupid couple hahaha
    I love the story and I love the narrator. Thanks!

    Ive listened to this story atleast a dozen times and it always is a great listen. The narrator's voice is perfect for Magnus and holds your attention throughout the story.
