Would you consider the audio edition of The Desert Spear to be better than the print version?

Not sure.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Desert Spear?

There were many.

What does Pete Bradbury bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Pete is a great narrator, however I listen versus read based on my schedule. What a bad narrator can do is dull my interest in a story. Pete was captivating!

What made the experience of listening to The Warded Man the most enjoyable?

The narrator's skill in distinguishing each character and making their experiences memorable. As there are a lot characters and a lot going on with each one, making the story great because it isn't centered around just one hero.

The entire story seemed as something of an intro to a great horror story. The narrator is what held my interest, as the story although short was a bit slow.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Disappointed. The ending seemed rushed and was too typical like a made for TV horror movie.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

His voice was a bit mechanical.

Any additional comments?

It starts off very interesting, but when the opportunity for true horror arrives the story rushes passed the moment. Until the rushed ending I did enjoy it.

Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

What disappointed you about A Discovery of Witches?

Narrator is one dimensional. No range, or depth to distinguish characters.

Would you ever listen to anything by Deborah Harkness again?

Nope.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Ikeda?

Robin Miles, Peter Bradbury, Stephen King

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Maybe it was a good story, but the Narrator killed it.

Any additional comments?

I really regretted this purchase.
