Good little warm up!

Would you listen to Unstrung again? Why?

I probably would not listen again. It wasn't long and is not hard to recall the details.This book is just a stepping stone between the first and second book. Interesting but not mandatory.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Unstrung?

I liked the main character a bit too much. I wanted him to stay around a bit longer.

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

He is consistent from book to book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It does not have a plot of its own... So no movie here

Wish I’d skipped that

My advise is to skip it. Not simp unsatisfying but annoying as well. I might not continue with the series.

WE LEARN DEEPLY

PARTS PIRATES
Not sure this answered any questions? If you are a huge Un Fan, you will want to listen. If you are just a warm fan, it will not be that interesting. Book one is great, everyone should read that. I have not read book Two yet, but I will. Lev spends time with some Indians, sorry Native Americans, sorry Chance People and he is treated well, But and it is a big But.

CHANCE PEOPLE
The newness of the whole Un, may be wearing off on me and I found the Chance People with their stilted talk and different beliefs, just a bit boring. Not that their is anything wrong with believing in Animal Spirits and transplanting animal hearts into humans is not any more unbelievable then being Un, I just could not get into it. I might be too old?

The answer to the why.

This is what set Lev off on his path of anger and revenge. I'm still curious if his spirit guide truly is the Owl.

Awww man...

This audiobook left me so sad. It’s a great short story to help fill in the gaps in Lev’s story. The ending is sad tho. Narrator rocks, author does a great job messing with my head, just like the 1st audiobook. Definitely worth listening to.

Slow start

At first, I found the story to be a bit slow moving and considered not finishing it. However, it tells a key story not included in the main series. I'm glad I stuck with it.
