Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'm not sure why other than the story I am suffering though this god awful narration again

What didn’t you like about Elizabeth Phillips’s performance?

her voice inflections, mispronunciation of words, her childlike voice ruins scenes of importance

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

as long as Elizabeth Phillips doesn't do voice overs Yes

Any additional comments?

I rated this higher than I truely think it should be from the totality of all the books. I was so excited to get into the book that I could overlook the long drawn out internal struggles. By the end of the book I couldn't wait for it to end but I am so heavily invested in the story that I can't wait for the last book either so that the story can finally be resolved. Please use more than 5 scenes in the next book so my imagination can wonder around "The Land" one last time.
