It’s like having dinner with Melinda

I loved the book!! I feel like I just had a very instructive dinner conversation with Melinda - she spoke to my heart and answered many of my questions indicating a great book flow. It’s also refreshing to hear the author’s own voice recorded :-)

Be aware it is a short book

Loved the Cruel Crown, just like the rest of the series. However the book is very short, and half of the time of the audiobook was of the sequel.

I liked the story a lot, and the interpretations as well. What I had a hard time was that each chapter was narrated by one of the two narrators, and they have a different speed. So every time a chapter changed, I had to pause whatever else I was doing to change the speed of the audio.

I got this audiobook without knowing who Megan was (I'm not from the US), and not expecting much as I tend to not enjoy biographies. Nonetheless, I found it to be value adding because it has information about history, personal values and empowerment. Also, much more fun to listen when the author reads its own work.

Increase audio speed to overcome slowness

Some of the previous reviews said that it was too descriptive and slow, despite the good story.

The narration is indeed slow, and sometime the descriptions were a bit too much. My way around it was to increase the speed, which made it totally worth listing to the story, overcoming the slow narration and capturing the key aspects of the descriptions.

Too much history

The book explores a lot of the history of innovation, which was a bit tiring, particularly when the author listed items. Nevertheless, the last 40min were much more practical and engaging!

Awesome fights but failed to surprise

Seen apprentices fighting was really exciting but I was eager to see both Jedi master and with lord fighting against each other, which never happens. The everlasting use of the Deus Ex Machina component is again something, unsurprisingly, used to give a closing to be story.
