    "A clever, magical coming-of-age story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Unreservedly yes! The books stands alone (though readers of other books from the Chrestomanci series, particularly The Lives of Christopher Chant, will appreciate the recurring characters), and I would recommend it to anyone with a taste for YA, or for fantasy in general. It's a well-written book, with good language, vivid characters I'd love to befriend, and a plot that comes together perfectly in a final, surprising - and funny - group confrontation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Conrad's Fate?

    The end, certainly, where all the different threads and characters finally come together in one place. Conrad's adventures with Christopher, however, were also both fun and memorable.


    Which character – as performed by Gerard Doyle – was your favorite?

    Conrad himself: he's an endearing character, and a believably 12-year old boy. Doyle's characterizations of some of the secondary characters, such as Mr. Amos and Mr. Prendergast, the butlers, were also excellent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommended unreservedly: an excellent book that has received the audio treatment it merits.

    "A good read"

    Not her best in the series but definitely worth reading. The series consists of 4 books based in the same univers....sort of. It isn't necessary to read them in order to enjoy them although reading "A Charmed Life" will help you understand this book a bit better. I would recommend this book for both young adults and adults.

    "One of the better Crestomanci books"

    The main character, Conrad, was rather likable. I really felt for him several times throughout the narrative. Chris was more likable than some of the other Crestomanci books, perhaps because Conrad had a very realistic view of him.

    The narrator is good, if not very memorable.

    The ending is a little convoluted. I found myself having to listen to it twice while trying to unravel the complicated exposition that is dumped on the listener near the end. This seems to be an ongoing problem with many of Dianne Wynne Jones' works.
