Will listen again!

This has been an AMAZING audiobook to listen to! After the first book, I didn’t know what to expect from this one. Wasn’t sure if it could be just as good. Not surprising, this was a “page turner” for sure! I can’t wait to listen to the set again!

Great fun for all ages

Truly a story for the whole family to enjoy. Gemma Whelan is a chameleon with the skill in which she jumps characters. Surprises at every turn and nothing is what it seems. 10/10 for story and performance. I can’t wait for the full series to come out!!

My tweens loved it.

My kids cannot wait for the next book to come out! I’ve been reading aloud to them since they were babes and now we listen to audio books at bedtime. They were enthralled with this unique fantasy story. The voice artist is simply fantastic with her knowledge of accents and she keeps you in the grips of the story!

Better then the first book!

I want to start by saying that I am 25 years old and I love these books. They are not just for young adults. I was sceptical at first about this series while reading Nevermoor as I found the book to have too many similarities to Harry Potter. Wundersmith exceeded my expectations and I actually thought it was amazing. Townsend expands on the world and the characters in Wundersmith in a way that expands the story and takes it in a completely different direction then I was expecting. By the end of this book, I actually found that my initial criticism of the series being too similar to Harry Potter was not a fair judgement. Although I liked the first book Nevermoor I found it to be a lot of info-dumping, world-building and I did find it similar to Harry Potter. However, Wundersmith takes the series in a completely different direction that is extremely refreshing, exciting and fun. It was a fun, magical, quick and exciting read. I found it to be fast-paced and I never wanted to put it down. I actually finished it in one sitting! The performance was amazing! Whelan is a phenomenal narrator and really captivates her audience. Overall, I would rate this book a 5 out 5-star. This series has great potential and I will continue to read the next books and I can't wait for the third book to come out. Definitely, give this series a try! I'm predicting that every book in this series will just get better and better!

Another great book!

Gemma Whelan truly just makes the story even better. Her voices and how she brings the book to life honestly made me search every other thing she’s read to hear it, I love her performance that much. And the book itself, is such a pleasure to listen to, it’s definitely one of those books I will listen to many times! It just flows and is easy to follow and to enjoy.

Amazing Story and Narration

This narrative is FANTASTIC!! I love the story and Gemma’s performance is one of the best I have heard! Her talent for voices rivals Jim Dale. I am eagerly awaiting the rest of this series.

SO SO GOOD!

What a great story for people of all ages. A sequel that wasn't riding its predecessor's coat tails. A wonderful storyline with amusing characters, and an aesthetically pleasing writing style.

Book is good, can't stand the voice

I love the book, but I can't stand the person reading it. The voices are exaggerated and near painful at points.

Such an amazing series!

This is my second time through the series and I think I like it better this time! There’s tons of little details and story lines that keep you immersed in the world of Nevermoor and the Wondrous Society.
The narrator has fantastic voices for the characters and does a great job keeping you engaged in the reading.
Full disclosure:I’m an almost 40 year old who loves middle grade fiction because the stories are great and there’s no questionable content- hahaha!

Can Hardly Wait to Listen to the Next!

I really enjoyed this story - although it may be aimed at YA -- as an adult -- I can say I enjoyed it just as much as more "adult" books that rely on sex and over used cuss word (just lazy-writing). The book was a bright spot in my listening landscape.

Excellent follow up!

I'm always worried if the second book will live up to the first. This one absolutely does. If you enjoyed the first one, read this one!
