    Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.

    Story
    "Second in the series continues the adventure"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version but this is a great book on audio. Fairy tale fantasy type stories seem to translate really well to the audio format.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fresh take on fairy tale stories we all know. Enjoyable for all ages.


    Have you listened to any of Chris Colfer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    My 11 year old and I listened to his first book as well (the prior book in this series). They were very similar so if you liked the last one, you will likely enjoy this as well.


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

    There were several funny moments.


    Any additional comments?

    Colder isn't my favorite narrator which surprised me since he's an actor. He has a flat quality to his voice which I didn't really like. I preferred other narrators in this genre like Bronson Pinchot and Johnny Heller.

    That said, my 11 year old liked the narration. He also found the story engrossing.

    "I can hardly wait for another sequel!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Wonderful book for pre-teens! I will recommend this to my friends for reading to their children at bedtime.


    Have you listened to any of Chris Colfer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr. Colfer's performance was nothing short of genius! I don't know how he kept all the voices straight, but he did!

    Story
    "An adventure to revisit"
    If you could sum up The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns in three words, what would they be?

    Awesome awesome awesome!


    What other book might you compare The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns to and why?

    None and yet so many at the same time. Chris Colfer really wrote a great adventure and made it his own. While this story recalls many of the fairy tale classics, Colfer keeps the integrity of each character without commercializing them. But they aren't who the story is about anyway. Alex and Connor Bailey are awesome and lovable and new characters who are a fresh breath of air.


    Which character – as performed by Chris Colfer – was your favorite?

    What? I have to pick just one? That's not going to happen! I caught myself a few times wondering how in the world he gave each characters voice such a different range, I had no problem telling which character was from the other.


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

    If I could have I would have! But I just didn't have that much free time in one sitting. But I did finish it in a week and a half.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Chirs Colfer! After listening to The Land of Stories, the wishing spell and finding out soon after that he had already had The Enchantress Returns in the works, I was so delighted! I hope he isn't done with Alex and Connor Bailey just yet, please don't be! I have more to say but can't without spoiling something awesome for those who haven't read yet.
