Publisher's Summary

Wednesday has rolled around, and Arthur Penhaligon has an invitation to return to the House that he can't refuse. Drowned Wednesday has sent a ship to pick him up from the hospital...even though his hometown is miles away from any ocean.

From hospital room to high seas, Arthur finds himself on an adventure that will pit him against pirates, storms, explosions of Nothing-laced gunpowder, and a vast beast that eats everything it encounters. Through it all, he is drawn deeper into the central mystery of the House. Arthur must find the third part of the Will and claim the Third Key, not just for himself, but for the millions (if not trillions) who will suffer if he doesn't.

The first step? Surviving life aboard a ship on the Border Sea.

The Third Key...

Another well told story. Garth Nix pulls you into Wednesday as Arthur is healing from his adventures on Tuesday. There is no safe haven from the Morrow Days, not even a hospital room. Ride along as our reluctant hero faces Pirates, a White Whale more than 100 miles long, and worse than that, Nothing. Will the Nothing stop Arthur...or will Arthur let nothing stop him?

Excellent!

Wednesday's death was quite evocative. Additionally, the cliff hanger was quite a doozy! left me needing more.

Why?

Why, oh why, did the narrator go back to pronouncing turquoise the wrong way? I know I'm fixating on this but that just means the audiobook is without any other flaws.

Corduner continues to impress me.

I loved the way Corduner changes the sound of his voice for every character he reads. His accents were superb. He is a fantastic narrator for a series I loved since I was a child.

Not Nix's best

Good plot but sloppy telling in places. Worth the read once but I won't be rereading it any time soon.

Good Fun

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

Yes it was time well-spent. The entire series is aimed more toward children however I enjoyed it and had a lot of fun. The narrator does an excellent job with his different voices.

Do you think Drowned Wednesday needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It has a follow up book and the entire series is a lot of fun.
