    Story
    "Superb!"
    What made the experience of listening to Valentine Pontifex the most enjoyable?

    When I saw there were multiple narrators I was concerned. Well, those concerns quickly went away when I realized why they went with multiple readers. Each chapter focuses on a different part of the story and/or character. Having a different reader for each character or character types was brilliant!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They were all so good and well done I can't chose a favorite.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All four narrators did an outstanding job.


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

    Yes but couldn't.


    Any additional comments?

    This is among the best audiobooks I have listened to. The story and narrators made for a wonderful experience journeying to this world of Majipoor.
