Loved it!

I really ended up loving this book and I wish that a lot of the things that had been in the book were added to the movie. If you loved the movie, I think you should listen to this book as it will explain more and give you a better understanding of how The Realms came about and makes you more sympathetic to the book's villain.

I loved the narrator. Her lilt and timing of her words were impeccable and I found myself falling asleep to this audiobook because it was so relaxing. You could really see what the author had written by the narrator's tone and the way in which she read. It was overall, fantastic.
