Publisher's Summary

In the third installment of the Girl Genius novels, Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle begins as Agatha Heterodyne returns to her ancestral home, the warped little town of Mechanicsburg. There she must claim her inheritance by convincing the artificial intelligence that animates her family's castle that she is, in fact, the new Heterodyne. But this apparently simple task is made complicated in several ways: An imposter claiming to be the legitimate heir appears. The Empire is convinced that Agatha is the person responsible for the Long War (and to be fair, they are not entirely incorrect). And, worst of all, the Castle itself is insane.

From the Hugo Award-winning Girl Genius online comics comes this third book in the Agatha H. trilogy; and just like the first two, Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle will grab you from the first chapter and not let go!

    "A great companion to the Girl Genius comic series"

    If you are a fan of the Girl Genius comics then you will find this audiobook, or the book, to be a good addition to GG lore. With additional insights into the motivations and thoughts of key characters, it's the same story told in an interesting way, without out new plot developments. Well performed and well recorded, the audio quality is fine. Not essential but will be enjoyed by fans or those totally new to the series alike.

    "Highly recommended"

    A great novelisation of the first half of the Mechanicsburg arc of the Girl Genius story. Like the two novels preceding it, this book faithfully tells the story found in the comics, and also greatly expands on background material. It is a recommended read for any fan of the series.
    The book has two flaws however; the book ends mid-story with a cliffhanger, and the narrator has way too few different voices for the characters she portray. Other than that, it is a great read.

    "Fun Stuff."

    Nothing profound, nor exceptionally original. A fun fun time. Adds background to the graphic novels.

    Story
    "The Comedy continues!"
    What made the experience of listening to Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle the most enjoyable?

    The writing adapted for a prose novel and the performance of the narrator. Her voice has managed to capture the comedy and the CRAZY that is part of the Girl Genius web comic and translated it perfectly to audio book format. In fact I'd advice anyone who has only read the book to get this in addition. Also any who reads the comic should listen to this book to see how their favorite characters are performed by this talented narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The different voices and accents the author managed to put in for each voice as well as the passion with which she perfoms their vocalizations.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    I think I mentions that above but I will be looking into other perfomances if she was this good for what I imagine is a hard cast of characters to vocalize.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Agatha loses her mind for a minute but is brought back by her feelings for two people whose lives are in danger.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr and Mrs. Folio please write the next prose novel soon so the next audiobook of this can come out.

    "great story, sudden ending"

    I love the Girl Genious world.(I begun reading the webcomic.) and finding audiobooks was a big joy. but this book ends rather unaturally. Like some tv shows that insists on instead of ending a season with some sence of the season ended. it just stops on a sudden and brutal cliffhanger.(and then these shows go and get themselves canceled...)

    the humor of GG is always pressent and some details are here that either was missing in the webcomic or I missed/forgotten.

    But now the book is over, and I mist find another Spark enduced mad science story, somewere...

    "I've never laughed out loud so much!"
    What made the experience of listening to Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle the most enjoyable?

    SCIENCE! I love the crazy physics warping abilities of Sparks, and on top of an interesting world, the writers are halarious!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The cat, he's so snarky and brillant. ... And the Jagers! They are so funny!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She could use some more voices :)


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

    Celebrate MAD science!


    Any additional comments?

    The book ends mid-story, it really infuriated me! The first two books properly finished the main storyline, but this one... really ticked me off ending without finishing at least some of the plotlines.

    "Pure entertainment!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    For being a wild ride (i cant really describe it) the main characters all had depth and made sense in their own unique fashion. But Agatha's Jaeger monsters were actually my favorite even if their role was tuned back a little bit in this book.


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was incredible and played the characters as over-the-top as they were written. Her cats and creatures and characters were all spot on, and the footnotes were a delight, with lots of deadpan humor.


    Any additional comments?

    There were lots of hilarious moments, inbetwee incredible drama, wonderiing if the castle would survive. The pase of the book is incredibly intense, very fitting of the characters. By the end i was worn out and ready for a more tame book to collect my wits while getting ready for the next book.

    "struggle to finish"

    I am frustrated and irritated. The book rabble rouses for its entirety, then refuses to provide a payoff. what about the primary (in my opinion) plot line? the book stops, not finishes. wait for the next one. GRRR..

    "best yet, are you sure this is a kids book?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, I don't want them to stop. so funny. yet I can see the action in my head. the insane people running around making things.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle?

    when they all are working together to put the mean lady robot back together. out of love.


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the voices just play. she make you see them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    when the cat is wiping his feet not licking them... and when asked why he just asked if they had looked at the floor. it just "floored" me.


    Any additional comments?

    When is the next one coming out. :)

    "hot garbage"

    the story just went downhill at an amazing rate after chapter 10. The concept of the story is good but the authors just lost me going from one problem to another at a ludicrous rate.
