Would you listen to The Transformation of Anna again? Why?

Oddly I would. Romance fantasy is not something I would normally read. However, there are some writers, Anne McCaffrey, and Andre Norton for a pair and I would add Charlene A. Wilson to that group of women Fantasy writers who I would read.

What did you like best about this story?

Charlene as an author has a gift for integrating her descriptions of scenes with the story progression making the environment a part of the tale. She creates conflict using common events and intertwines it with the fantasy realm she is writing about

Which character – as performed by David J. Shaughnessy – was your favorite?

David is an excellent narrator and his reading of non-characters, in other words, the action and description of events is excellent, and his voice shifting between male and female roles was well done. But this is Coles story and I felt he was the character I favored.

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

No, the book is over six hours of listening, I listened to it in three sittings.

Any additional comments?

This is not my usual reading interest, but I did enjoy the story, the characters, and the narration. David J. Shaughnessy is a terrific narrator, and his reading fits Charlene's writing style beautifully.
