I’ve seen the movie years ago, and really enjoyed the book as well. Michael C Hall did an absolutely brilliant job narrating the story, and made it very engaging. A very pleasurable afternoon spent listening to this.

So much valuable info and insight

What I loved about this book is how often I felt understood (for the first time) with regards to my sensitivity. Things that I always thought were wrong or confusing were explained so clearly.
I would not say that I’m really high on the HSP scale, but I definitely resonate with many aspects. The value of understanding my HSP aspects causes me to give this book 4 stars.
For someone who is even higher on the scale of HSP, potentially referred to as shy or other such terms, there’s a lot of really specific advice and tools to use. There’s so much information and I do highly recommend this book to other sensitives out there.

Very enjoyable

Told from the perspective of a 12 yo girl, this was a very enjoyable tale of determination, adventure, war and magic. The narration was fabulous and I look forward to the next one in the series.
I haven’t read any of the Spellmonger series and that didn’t affect my enjoyment of this book. Might have to read them one day too!

Excellent. Gripping.

I haven’t read much sci-fi, but this book was excellent. There was just the right combo of geeky tech talk to make the concept believable, and not so much that I couldn’t stay connected to the book. The characters were awesome, and the narration of them was fabulous. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Essential listening

While this book is initially about the history and experience of racism in Britain, the book is relevant for North America as well. As the author says, discussion of racism in Britain is often eclipsed by the racism in the United States. This book was so well presented in terms of the research and the concepts and I’ve noted down several quotes I wish to share with others. I especially appreciate chapter 7 as it relates to what’s going on in the world today with the global BLM movement. Essential reading.

Love this series!

Fantasy, sci-fi and fairytales all mixed together? I love it. This is the second in the series and even though you know what’s going to happen from the fairytale perspective, the writing and characters are so enjoyable that I can’t wait to get to the end. Looking forward to the next one.

Nice book, lovely writing, and for someone struggling to embody love and forgiveness it would likely be a good place to start. For me, I’ve read lots of books on the topic, and I found this book did not give me anything I didn’t already embody or believe. Still, it was a nice book.

Cute and fun

I laughed out loud several times while listening to this book. It’s a fun, light, romcom that was a good escape from the seriousness of life.

Enjoyable

Listening to this audiobook was a real treasure for many reasons. Alicia Keys’ voice was such a pleasure to listen to as she told her story. And there were introductions to each section by important people in her life in their own voices and that was really special.
The book is the story of her life, and naturally scattered throughout are various lessons she learned. I have such great respect for Alicia, what she stands for, and her genuine nature. But I have to say this book felt a little on the light side with regards to insights. I guess I thought it would go deeper.
However, as I said, it was a great book to listen to you and interesting to see the perspective of someone coming up in the music industry.

I enjoyed this book and the world that Laura Sebastian created.
I found the book somewhat slow moving, and very long. I felt like some good editing could’ve cut out some unnecessary scenes and a lot of repetitive comments. There was a lot of over-emphasized regret, and constant reminders of what had happened earlier in the book.
Aside from those relatively minor defects. I did enjoy the book and I look forward to reading the sequel.
The narrator did a good job and was interesting to listen to. However at times I found her too breathy, almost whispering with an overly dramatic flair. But for the most part she was good.
