Pretty short, most of the book is a legend from the Urgal's culture. Pretty good, but not really worth the wait.

The story is good, the characters interesting enough, and the set up is pretty cool. The only grating problem is the horribly bad Cajun accents. The narrator is a pretty good one, but when it comes to the accents in the dialog, its pretty bad. Also the incorrect use of the "pidgeon French " is REALLY bad. I've spent a good bit of my life on Grand Isle and NONE OF US talk like that. If you can get over that and listen to the book, its a good story.

If you've read any of Naomi Novik's other books, then you know what to expect. If you haven't, you're missing out. Like Uprooted, Spinning Silver is a rollercoaster from beginning to end with wonderfully fierce female protagonists, strange magic, and deliciously high stakes. Naomi, as always I'm hungry for more!

The first story in my opinion is a little lack luster, but work through it. After that it's as awesone as we've come to expect, with the perspective changing to a few other beloved characters. As always, Jim delivers.

Honestly, I'm never going to look at nesting dolls the same way again. A pretty good story, makes me think of the Twilight Zone.

Not bad for an hour story I guess, although I found it extremely ambiguous. More or less we started nowhere and that's where we ended up. Rather pointless, but as I'm typically a sucker for dinosaurs I may get the other story I saw in the catalog. Narrative was pretty good.

Andrew Lincoln (aka Rick Grimes) does a fantastic and hilarious job of the individual voices of the "historical" characters as well as a smooth narrative throughout the book. When the history of the game, it's rules, and conception are finished, we get a hilarious Ginny Weasley and Rita Skeeter coverage of a world cup match. Special bonus for those of us Doctor Who fans when realization hit that Rita Skeeter is voiced by the lady Slitheen from the Christopher Eccleston season, Annette Badland. Overall, the narratives, the well timed sound effects, and the quirky story telling we've come to know and love make this an excellent, if short trip into the Wizarding World.

I got this book in the third grade and it gave me nightmares, so naturally I loved it. When I saw the audiobook all these years later and I couldn't resist. Like everything I've read by Neil Gaiman, this book totally delivers and is way creepy still. Neil himself reads so well and does all the voices so distinctly that it makes it a double treat. Totally worth a listen.

This book is awesome! If you loved Jurassic Park, the books, then you'll love this too. Fantastic blend of science and fiction, with a dash of action thrown in. I'm a sucker for arthropods and this fascinated me from beginning to end. HEY AUDIBLE, HOW ABOUT DOING THE SEQUEL? Great story, and spectacular narrative.
