    Story
    "What an AWESOME read."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Catskinner's Book to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is amazing. Have not read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Catskinner. The character was so different from most fantasy characters nowadays.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are many great scenes. I liked the Bowling alley scene and when he finds out what Godiva is. Very unexpected.


    Any additional comments?

    This is different from any fantasy out there. I've read many in the last year. I just could not put this one down. The narrator is very good. I bought this book without any reviews and I am glad that I did.

    "Original and Exciting Read!"
    Any additional comments?

    Fanstastic book! Dark, funny, sexy - keeps you on the edge of your seat. Every character is very original and a mystery unto him/her/itself. I love that there is no predicting what might happen next and often laughed out loud while listening.

    Both the narrator and the writing are excellent and make this book extremely hard to put down. Luckily, I have it on authority that the second book will hopefully be out on audio in January. I am eagerly awaiting the release!

    Story
    "Kept me curious"
    What made the experience of listening to Catskinner's Book the most enjoyable?

    With any audio book it requires a good narrator.... I feel otherwise the listener gets irritated and looses interest. I think what really helped me get into the book was the clear transition between character voices. The narrator had a very distinct and different voice for each character which really helped me visualize the storyline and kept me interested.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Catskinner's Book?

    A little shocked when "Godiva" was revealed


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Catskinner going to work


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

    I wouldn't say there was a particular moment that "moved" me


    Any additional comments?

    The book is a little sci-fi'ish for me but after a friend told me to give it a shot I was surprised to find myself enjoying it. The beginning of the book peaked my interest and kept me curious which made me want to keep listening. Overall I'm glad I listened to it and recommend it to anyone who may like a touch of Sci-fi in their books.

    Story
    "Fabulous story, great reader"

    When this story first started, it reminded me of Joseph Nassise's Jeremiah Hunt Chronicles--stories I particularly enjoy. However, it quickly carved it's own niche and took a different direction to that I was expecting. I was glad of that.

    The concept is an interesting one. Catskinner is a fantastically dangerous character capable of extreme violence and lives in the head of the much more reasonable James. I won't go into any more detail from here. It's a world worth delving into. Misha Burnett has written some fantastic characters in a dangerous situation. What I loved was the way they grow and evolve throughout the story, the situations they are in molding their personalities.

    My only complaint would be that it just isn't long enough. I want to be immersed in that world for much longer, get to know the characters even better. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to listening to more in the series.

    Brandon McKernan brings these characters to life with lively, entertaining narration. A great audiobook.
