Micheal is so easy to listen to. His anecdotes and Pearl's of wisdom shared from others and then shared to us are lovely.

OMG beautiful!!!!

I have absolutely loved listening to this. There have been some serious Laugh out Loud Moments.
I hope they write another book!
If you love them on Goggle box you will love this.

Not sure how to explain this review.

I was initially intrigued by the cover photo and downloaded this book. Its unusual with an interesting story, but it rather unexpectedly had a rather Gorey part that left me quite upset and I decided not to ready any more.
None of the reviews I read had forewarned me of this so I feel it should be mentioned so that others are not caught unawares.

very disappointing story but well performed

I read the books a few years ago and needed something to listen to whilst I worked so it seemed like a no brainer to order this and it's marvelous.
it's read by Phillip Pullman who's voice is soothing and melodic whilst the characters are performed by numerous people but it's just wonderful. all the dark materials are. :D

Great Book. Awful performance.

loved the latest Old Kindom story but the performance ruined it. Staccato with awful accents

Brilliant..and to hear it all from her own lips.

Carrie Fisher has always been a fantastic hero of mine and this was a wonderful insight into a brief moment in time.

Confusing and a let down!

Would you try another book written by Rick Yancey or narrated by Ben Yannette and Phoebe Strole ?

I enjoyed the performances, but i am not sure i would read another book by Rick Yancy as I felt this last book in the trilogy was a complete let down, so confusing and with a rather abrupt ending. The first book was awesome, the second book was ok, but with this last one there was no effort invested in writing about the emotion from the characters, it was like he was listing their experiences.

What could Rick Yancey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Rick could have Made it alot less confusing and invested more in the emotion of the characters. He did in the first book which is why I wanted to read more about the characters stories.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration from Pheobe was great but I wish they had kept the same male narrator from the beginning as Ben was a bit flat in places.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I wont be reading anything else by Rick Yancy as this was such a disappointment

Any additional comments?

if you want to try and get to the conclusion of the others then read this at your own peril! It will be confusing and only end in disappointment but read it any way or you wont know how it ends.
