Description

One of AudioFile Magazine's Best Audiobooks of 2019: "[Euan] Morton brings distinct voices and emotions to every character.... Listeners will be hard-pressed to believe they aren't listening to a full-cast production." (AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner)

The hotly anticipated sequel to the number one best seller Carry On

Simon Snow is back and he's coming to America! 

The story is supposed to be over.

Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after....

So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?

What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light....

That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place....

With Wayward Son, Rainbow Rowell has delivered an audiobook for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And an audiobook for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first. It’s another helping of sour cherry scones with an absolutely decadent amount of butter.

Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero’s journey might be over - but your life has just begun.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"Morton brings distinct voices and emotions to every character - from posh vampire Baz's deep frustration to fast-talking wizard Penelope's snappy repartee, from de-magicked and be-winged Simon's formless longing to a whole bevy of American wizards, vampires, and Native-inspired creatures. Listeners will be hard-pressed to believe they aren't listening to a full-cast production." (AudioFile Earphone Award)

Amazing!

The voice actor made me laugh a little whenever he had to voice one of the girls, but it was a lovely performance overall! I really loved the book and can't wait for it's sequel!

love these characters

the story takes the characters from the first book and gives us so many more reasons to love them. The conflict wasn't the best, but the characters moments were good enough to keep me entertained throughout the whole novel. love it!

A great sequel to Carry On

I loved Carry On but I knew Rainbow Rowell doesn't write a lot of series so when I heard Wayward Son was being made I was excited.
The story takes over where Carry On left off. Simon is not okay and I have to give Rowell so much credit for not just glossing over the events of the first book. Everything changed for Simon and where a lot of authors might choose to gloss over that fact and focus on Simon and Baz's love for each other this book does not do that. Despite the fact that he still has Baz and Penny, Simon is suffering from the mental and emotional ramifications of what happened. He is depressed and miserable and nothing can seem to pull him out of it. So in an attempt to help him, Penny suggests they take a road trip across America.

If you are expecting the Harry Potter fan fiction feel that the first book had you will not find it here. Simon still has wings and a tail, and magic still exists, as do magical creatures and the human world is still unaware of it but this book is more of its own thing. Whereas the first book almost like a retelling of events that you were already familiar with, this one feels like something new and its kind of refreshing.

Baz and Simon are still wonderful together but if you are expecting their relationship to be easy you will be disappointed. The two of them almost broke my heart in this book to the point where I was getting seriously concerned about how they ended up. I knew I was going to be seriously upset if they didn't end up together... not upset enough to not buy another book should Rainbow Rowell produce one because I love the characters and I'm addicted but upset all the same.

When the group finds out that Agatha might be in trouble they rush off to save her and find themselves in trouble several times along the way. The characters are well rounded and enjoyable for the most part and I can honestly say I look forward to getting to know some of them better in upcoming books.

That being said,

This book is not heavy on the romance and while I would be completely fine reading 400 pages of just Simon and Baz making kissy faces at each other, I understand the choice and respect it. I did, however, feel that the majority of the book was spent leading up to a conclusion that was not nearly as satisfying as it should have been. So much emotional energy spent wondering if there would even be a Snowbaz when the book was through only to get a couple sentences in conclusion.
I also HATED the fact that it ended in a cliff hanger. I hate cliff hangers. To be fair the events of this book were finished and the cliff hanger added more as a teaser to the next book I would have honestly just preferred to be an actual teaser instead of something tacked on to the end of this book.

Euan Morton once again did an amazing job with his performance. He has the type of voice you just want to keep listening to and he made listening to this audiobook all the more enjoyable.

Rainbow does it again

Another story that I don’t want to end, but so well done. Left with room to keep going with these characters and an adventure in a new context that is suspenseful and thrilling and real as ever. Rowell truly writes the most realistic relationships and dialogue ever- it makes the fantasy elements that much more real. This story is a road trip romp through what happens after you fall in love and beat the “big bad.” How do you stay in love and cope with the next challenges that may come your way? How do you keep on carrying on? Rowell’s writing is an exploration of that. But dear lord I just want them all to verbalize their love for one another. (Maybe in the next one?) Euan Morton’s performance is so amazing- it really adds to the story, and I recommend listening to the audiobook even (and especially!) if you’ve already gone through the text on paper. Thank you, Rainbow.

Definitely a middle book

This book has some terrific moments (I just about died when they hit the Ren fair), and is overall a great listen. Its only drawback is that it is definitely the middle book in a trilogy-the story is not over, even though the book is. Rainbow, I hope you are writing fast!

it made my heart break

Listening to this book was just as enthralling as the first. I'm fresh off the read so I'm still wrapped up in the emotions of it all, but it was honestly heartbreaking to listen to how incomplete the boys still are with themselves. Their struggle is something new, I never knew I needed a book that deals with the aftermath of the end of the climax. The performance was incredible and I had to stop it a few times to just deal with everything I was feeling.

Amazing sequel; more books please!

This was an amazing sequel and another amazing performance. I'm so glad she decided to write more for these characters, and I'm glad the story is staying interesting even after Watford.

Not nearly as good as I expected

Was excited to listen but it fell short after previous books. Narration was goof but story fell short. And the ending was so boring.

Amazing book

They went to a really traumatic experience and she wrote the "coping" really really well and also by the end of the book it's kind of obvious that there is going to be a sequel.I think that not a lot of authors write about wars and chaos and then remember that after everything is over the characters have to deal with the trauma.Really well written

I was so into it

The British accent. The voice. Everything made me felt really close to me favorites characters. I felt everything. Love, rush, euphoria. Baz and Simon are probably my OTP. I just want to hung them so hard that I will heal all my hurts just like magic. I still in love with this story. I can’t wait to the next book 🥺

Not sure it was necessary

I really liked Carry On, but I failed to see how Wayward Son added to the story. I enjoyed it, but not as much as Carry On. Euan Morton was awesome tho.
