My critique is less about the book itself as it is about how audible doesn't have additional categories for books. this book was fairly decent if one takes into account that it was written more as a young adult novel. these things should be taken into consideration given the string of "...he said" "....she said".
otherwise I enjoyed the book, a coming of age wizard book where the loo author didn't shy away from the defining attribute of the main character being a wizard and he does magic.

Any additional comments?

If you are the type of person with 'sensibilities' on the topic of homosexuality, run far away! This book is filled with multiple instances of graphically detailed descriptions of man on man action that occur across multiple chapters. Not that that's all the book was about, but at times it did seem that way. The narrator was good, providing distinct voices for each character. The story jumped around a bit, going from the main story to a flashback, then a flashback in a flashback then returning to ride the first flashback for a while until finally returning to the stories present leaving you to do the mental gymnastics to follow the timeline.
That said, the characters and the story developed well and was an interesting listen, if a bit (to put it mildly) to much information on the whole gay sex thing the characters had going.
