This is just a story. Nothing to do with books

What did you like best about The Too-Clever Fox? What did you like least?

Wonderful parable. It's only a 30ish minute listen. Great narration.

What does Lauren Fortgang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Lauren is an excellent narrator. I'd listen to anything she does.

Any additional comments?

again, this story has nothing to do with the Grisha trilogy. It's only tie in is the location. None the less, a great parable.

Good things, and bad, come in all sorts of packaging!

I learned similar lessons while growing up in New York City. As you grew up through your teenaged years, you learned to watch for what you didn't see right away. Like a boxer's feint before the big punch, a basketball player's crossover dribble or a Hienz Ward blindside block on an unsuspecting safety, if you fail to have a good sense of your surroundings and jump at the obvious or something seems "too easy", it is because it is. There is an old adage that states "do you know what you get when you "Assume"? You get an "Ass" of "U" and "Me".

I think the narrator did an excellent job. Pacing and inflect were spot on. I had read this story quite some time ago and it has lost none of
it's lessons.

Very Brothers Grimm

Would you listen to The Too-Clever Fox again? Why?

Sure. Because it's a good fairytale. Had that classic feel of "don't do this or die."

Any additional comments?

I really liked that one. It had a very Brothers Grimm feel to it. And who doesn't like a little Grimm.

Good quick writing

Smart short story. Enjoyable is a very good way to describe it, especially if you like Bardugo.

Tw Gore

There's some sudden gore towards the end which is good to have a warning for since I found it quite alarmingly well written. I really love this story, it was crafted and delivered wonderfully.

Possibly my favorite read of 2016

Such a wonderful tale. Loved the fox and the villain--it doesn't happen all that often that I actually like the villain but it just couldn't be helped. They were both clever and charming. Will definitely be rereading this one over and over and over again as it is a close contender for my favorite book of 2016.

Lauren Fortgang was brilliantly cast as the narrator. Love her work and will definitely seek more of it out
