Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It's a very gripping tale. You're not sure who Allistair is until nearly the very end. Brad did it so well with the duology

What was one of the most memorable moments of Comorbid?

Without giving it away, it comes near the very end - and it really sucks you in.

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

It's so different when you hear a voice actor perform the story. I loved this novel when I read it but to hear it is such a different level.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was spooky!!!

Any additional comments?

Bravo to Lorelei and Brad on a job well done.

What made the experience of listening to Shards of the Glass Slipper the most enjoyable?

The narration of the story gives it a different depth and feel to the story. From having read the book, I enjoyed it immensely, but as an audiobook the story takes on a new life of it's own, fully immersing the audience in the experience.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Patience Muffet by far. From her name she is Little Miss Muffet, but she is not one to stand by and be a victim especially where those spiders are concerned.

What does Christopher Crosby Morris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It reminded me of the Hobbit series originally done by Rankin & Bass. The narration was very similar to that experience and again heightened the story to a new level. I think he did a phenomenal job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I had the time I would listen to this in one sitting but it served well as my companion on the highway during my morning and evening commute.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the follow up. As great as the novel, and definitely an enjoyable experience.

  • A Novel

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.
