Did Scales inspire you to do anything?
no, It was a good book not her best.
Listening to Scales was just the sort of short fiction experience I was looking for. Sometimes a bit of short fiction is what I want from a listen and this gave me what I wanted. I'm not usually interested in the young adult fantasy genre, but something about this YA title pulled me in. Not for nothing, my enjoyment of this title was due in large part by the narrator. The narrator Ioanna Malandrenias, has such a rich voice, that emotes vulnerability and the sensual allure of the sea. There was so much complexity in the narration that it really painted a beautiful picture with the author's words. I'd certainly listen to this one again and I'd love to see more from both author and narrator. Do I smell a sequel?
