It's an interesting twist on the classic fairy tale, unqiue in its interpretation. The story telling is well done and the characters interesting. My only complaint is that it ended too soon!
The book was somewhat predictable but the performance was incredible and the twist on Cinderella was very creative and surprisingly entertaining. This would be a great listen for any age. I have never herd a single performer who was so good at sperate voices and even a plethora of accents in a single performance. If I could give more that 5 stars I would for all categories!!
Very interesting. A bit predictable, and honestly the smaller twists surprised me more than the big ones, but a great spin on a tale that's been told and retold for a very very long time.
The narrator was excellent. Distinct voices, well voiced. I enjoyed listening to her.
On to the second!
I very much enjoyed this audio book. it was recommended by audible many times and I ignored it. I finally read the summary and downloaded it. what's not to love about a cyborg mechanic dealing with step family in a futuristic world with unmanned hover cars and androids everywhere?
Great futuristic twist on the fairytales we all know and love. Could not stop listening to this story and can't wait to hear the next book in this series. Props to the narrator on portraying the characters!
