Publisher's Summary

The Scriven people are brilliant, mad - and dead. All except one, whose monstrous creation is nearly complete - a giant city on wheels. New London terrifies the rest of the world, and an army of mammoth-riders gathers to fight it. Meanwhile, young Fever Crumb begins a hunt for Ancient technology in their icy strongholds. She finds a mysterious black pyramid full of secrets. It will change her world forever. Scrivener's Moon follows Fever Crumb and A Web of Air to complete one of the most exciting and inventive fantasy adventures series ever recorded for audio.

Confusing, disappointing

Reeve seems to have run out of material in this last installment of the Fever Crumb trilogy. A great deal of the latter half of the story concerns Fever’s besotted interest with a female from another tribe, and there is the obligatory war at the end in which I found I did not care about any of the participants.

If the Fever Crumb narrative was to explain the the impossibly impractical reasons for a moving city from the viewpoint of a technical mind, it fell short.

Still, Reeve’s word craft added interest to an otherwise languishing finale.

Book 5 stars; narration negative 5 stars

Loved all the ME and FC books but had to force myself to finish this due to the narrator's atrocious character voices and accents. If I hadn't already been so emotionally invested in the series, I would have not continued to listen to this book. Book, 5 stars; narration, negative 5 stars.

We love this series!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

My children and I love this whole series. Philip Reeves creates a whole amazing world, similar enough to ours that it is families, yet alien.

What other book might you compare Scrivener's Moon to and why?

The Predator Cities series, also by Philip Reeves. Why aren't they on Audible!

Terrible reader compared to the official versions

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes get a better reader

What other book might you compare Scrivener's Moon to and why?

The other two Fever Crumbs read by Philip and Jenny Agutter - Philip was great reading Fever Crumb, and though she wasn't quite so good, Jenny still brought A Web of Air alive.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

obviously had no interest in the book whatsoever, her reading sounded forced throughout.

Any additional comments?

Wait for a proper audio version (which I expected this would be) - not one of these 'Scholastic' ones

Great book ruined by narrator😟

Poor narrator, loved author's narration of first book in series and Jenny Agutter good too, but am sad to say l feel this narration felt forced, everything over pronounced every other word seems to be read as if underlined or with an exclamation mark.
Hope this book will be released again with Philip Reeve as narrator or just anyone better!

Narration

The excellence of Garth Nix's work is without question but how on earth could Audible allow such an inept reader to narrate it

Sarah Coomes has no feeling for this book and is obviously unaware of the power of the material that she presents. Her intonation can be compared to that of a foreign language student where the end of every statement end with an up-tilted ,questioning tone.

I looked forward to the release of this audio book for so long but was nearly brought to tears by the narration. There are so many excellent narrators in your stable.

Please, Audible, listen to this yourselves and never do this to me again.

Get the right person for the job. :o(

I was looking forward to to this story as I have had just finished the last book read by Jenny Agutter and her lovely soft voice. when I started to listen to this one my ears were confronted with the sharp shrill pitch of Sarah Coomes, unfortunately she seemed to make all the characters that crossed over cold and hard with no warmth that Jenny gave them. As a result it took some time the get into the story which was a real shame. (A bad choice of narrator to continue with the series on this ocation. Sarah is not a bad narrator, other book she is just what is needed, on this one however in this case she's just the wrong one for the job in my opinion). Other than that the plot lived up to my expectations of Miss Fever Crumb's adventures with a couple of unexpected things along the way.
Enjoy

an interesting story and nice backstory for Mortal

although I like the story it felt a bit scattered

narration was clear but uneven which made it quite distracting. the repertoire of Voices did not quite gel so well with Mr crum.

great story but didn't enjoy narrator change

Was disappointed that the narrator made characters sound really posh. This created discrepancy between this book and the rest of the series.

great book but narrator didn't suit

really enjoyed the story but after listing to the others the narrator didn't suit the others in the series and made me think it was a different book
