    "Wonderful!"

    Such a wonderful gem! All 3 books are worth your listening credits, and this, the first book, doesn't disappoint. If you are tired of listening to "my pretty pony/puppy/fairy" with your kids, then this is the book for all of you! D.M. Cornish has created an entirely believable world, populated with utterly believable characters.

    "So many made up words!"
    What did you like best about Foundling? What did you like least?

    Best: The world is interesting and some of the story, while predictable, was very fun.

    Worst: There are so many made up words that there is a definition in every chapter heading.


    What was most disappointing about D.M. Cornish’s story?

    He failed the XKCD test


    Which character – as performed by Humphrey Bower – was your favorite?

    Europe


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be looking for the reader, Humphrey Bower. He was delightful.
