Publisher's Summary

Waldo Rabbit is back! Waldo and Alice continue on their quest, now accompanied by the ogre Gronk. They are headed to Norwich, where they hope to find the third monster that will be Waldo's last familiar. But things are never as simple as they seem. An archlich, White Mage, and murderous rabbits all stand in the way. Yes, that's right, the murderous flesh eating rabbits make their appearance! Waldo is both the hunter and the hunted. Can he find his last familiar before his enemies find him? It looks like everyone is after the rabbit.

Shouldnt be called book 2

While I really do love the book, the way it's written, the characters and the story. It was so much fun. but this feels like a cheap way to get more money due to book 2 to being just a few more chapters from the book 1. I do not appreciate this but I really do like the series

I feel cheated/ripped off.

Any additional comments?

1. Price! Check the length of the book before you buy. I bought this book as I liked it's predecessor and was excited for the sequel. Sadly I did not even think to check the length as the last book was almost 11 hours. When this book suddenly came to an end I thought it was a joke or something, I was thinking "Um... it should only be about half over at this point."

Typically I refuse to buy any book that does not meet or surpass the $1/hour value threshold. Consider that if you have the platinum account one credit equals just under $10. As such this book should have a length of at least 10 hours. It's not even close.

2. While the writing is good it is not an improvement over the first book and the main character is SIGNIFICANTLY lacking in growth. Shockingly so. I mean the fish out of water thing can be fun but let's consider the deceased equine fully pulped at this point. Honestly if he is this dense how in the world has he managed to survive this long?

3. This feels like they just rushed this to publishing in order to cash in as fast as possible. The book feels like it lacks structure. Like the author going to have some but then the editor said, "Nope you're done, we will just go with what you have"

It's sad as this is a fun story and the author had a good thing going and now he has lost me as a reader. I won't support this sort of bait and switch tactics. Honestly the audacity is bit much. NY Times best selling authors would never try and short change their readers but these people think that doing so if fine. GLWT.

More of the same(meant in the best way possible)

A direct sequel and more laughs ensue. If you've read the first one, you wont have much complaint aside from the fact it is slightly shorter. If you haven't read the first one......why aren't you? Fix yourself.

Read first book first, but this is a good read.

What made the experience of listening to After the Rabbit the most enjoyable?

Absolutely amazing. I love the concept and the characters are very fun. Shakespeare it is not, but if you are looking for good laughs and fun characters, this is the book for you. I cannot even remember how many times that this book had me busting out laughing out loud.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main character is by far the most fun. It is his awkward reactions that really make this book so great!

Have you listened to any of Gary Furlong’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great narration!

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

It was a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting, and besides the occasional need for sleep, I did listen to it in one go.

Any additional comments?

My only complaint is that book 3 is not available on audible!

It Continues!!

Any additional comments?

This was a great sequel to the first title but was far to short and left me wanting much more.

This book really felt like it was just a chunk taken off the first book and published as a sequel. Besides that I enjoyed every moment. I had it already purchased before I finished the first and started it up the moment I was done with the other.

The narrator continued to do a great job and the editing seemed to be better.

I don’t think he even KNOWS this is gay-bashing.

This isn’t a trigger warning. I’m not triggered. I simply want the discourse elevated by socially compelling authors. There are characters here who are PURELY harmful stereotypes. - ‘If you’re gay, YOU WANT TO SLEEP WITH ALL MEN. And you won’t shut up about it either... cause you ignore all polite refusals of sex and persist anyway... and you talk with a lisp, and cross-dress... because you’re gay! Get it? That’s the joke! He’s gay! Get it? So he talks with a lisp! Get it!?’ - Through the whole damn book. Other characters are ill-conceived & comedically shallow stereotypes as well. But one was only funny to 13-year-old boys in the 80s. The sex-object woman ‘defies’ her sex-objectification by ‘being manley’... you see... she’s valid, and NOT just an object... because she can lift heavy stuff and fight and open jars. The first book was fun. Sophomoic and infantile, a little too embracing of sex slaves & casual rape, but 98% cute. This on the other hand can’t really be enjoyed by people like me because the representations of people like me in the book, are the recurring jokes.

Annoying

This is the end of book 1 not book 2, which is disappointing. The story and performance were still stellar, but this really should’ve just been included with book 1.

Thin and repetitive story

I couldn't finish listening to it. I had to stop about half way through - that's only 3 hours by the way - because of how frustratingly thin and repetitive the story was. I found myself looking forward to side story involving the mother more than the main one involving Rabbit. There was absolutely no character development. Most of the argument would begin with how Rabbit would do something dumb, Alice would tell him why it's dumb, and Rabbit would reply with how "uncivilized" the rest of the world is. I'm not joking. It's repeated over and over again. And before the argument that Rabbit is only a teenager is made, and without giving too much of a spoiler, there was a dream sequence involving the sister that served no purpose other than to invoke some sort of character development. Yet there was none. At this point, I don't see how I can finish the rest of this book. I definitely won't be picking up book 3.

The story is still quite engaging

The story is still quite engaging and entertaining. Like others, I wish it had been longer but I do not feel cheated. Can't wait for the next one to be released on audio...

down the rabbit hole?

the second book in the series, and like the first, it's a lot of fun.
We follow our hero and his crew on the second stage of the quest, and it's lively, colourful, well-written, and funny. We have all sorts of mythic beasts and monsters, and it turns out they all a hoot.
if I were to make one teensy criticism it's that it felt to me like the story finished mid-way through. It'll carry on in book 3 I'm sure, but left me a little unsatisfied. Or to be more positive, desperate for the next installment.
All things considered, a great story, highly enjoyable. More more more please!
