I loved every word of this piece of art. His use of words paints a stunning picture and his storytelling ability brings it to life. I’m not sure I would have enjoyed reading it as much as I did listening to it. Although I know I still would have loved it, Rothfuss is just such a wonderful narrator you need to hear his read his own words.

He prefaces the book with this but before you get there here’s a warning: If you’re looking for more King Killer Chronicles this is not for you. If you want to meet Ari, then it is.

Love David Wong’s imagination

I loved entering another universe created by David Wong, so good. Zoey was a great character, a bit strong headed which made make stupid decisions but still very witty and strong. I would definitely recommend this book. Christy is a great narrator, she does such good voices and I like where she puts emphasis.

Unimaginative and a bit infuriating

Brown took two well known concepts and over glorified them. Very anticlimactic. It sounded like a lecture on why everyone just needs to get along. Which is a nice message but the point was over driven. This book could have been half the length and it wouldn’t have changed a thing. I swear, if I heard the phrase “where did we come from and where are we going” one more time I may have thrown my phone away. I listened through only because I had already dedicated so much time to it. The narrator was incredibly talented, which made it bearable. But just barely...
