    Story
    "Fragmented story"

    Fragmented story. Characters are weaved together but the tales have no purpose. This seems to be a collection of stories loosely surrounding the main character who runs the town inn and the townspeople who frequent its bar. The general idea of was a good one but the author does not seem to be able to get it off the ground. I understand that there is a sequel to this book but this one doesn't entice enough to continue. The group of stories should not have been broken up between multiple books. It seems like a single story was broken up part way through and converted to a "part two"; much the way Hollywood seems to be doing with its movies lately. Sadly, it doesn't work for this book. Too many of the stories are left without conclusion. This was quite a frustrating listen.

    There is a 2.nd book


    Any additional comments?

    If you like dragons, goblins and want an easy, cosy listen - this could be it

    Story
    "Sphincter Clasps"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Not including the sphincter clasps. Also, the story seemed rushed. It seems like something that could have been made into a longer novel and been great, but instead is so short it isn't even good IMO.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The reader was nice, his voice was pleasant and suited the characters. The author did a good job of invoking imagery. There were some very charming parts to the story, it wasn't all bad.


    Which character – as performed by Fred Kennedy – was your favorite?

    The narrator was my favourite. Aside that, the tavern owner who was the protagonist.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Snowybrook Inn: Book One?

    The scene with the goblin king. A different object could have been used to implicate the goblin hoard. The author does such a good job of conjuring up imagery that I was very put off and almost didn't finish listening to the book.
