Worth a listen, but not as good as the first

If you enjoyed the previous book, then this is certainly worth a listen. However, it’s not as good as the first. It has its moments, and I really don’t have anything negative to say, but the story just isn’t quite as good as the previous.

Engaging & different (with a great performance, an okay one, and a tolerable one)

I enjoyed the narration of the father and daughter, but the mother wasn’t to my taste, mainly due to her whistling as she pronounced the letter ‘s’. The father’s narration was especially good, as he had a great calm, warming voice.

Overall, the story was good. I was eager to keep listening to hear what would happen next, and the way that it was done with the three perspectives was something different and very welcome. My only issue with the story was that I felt that I had worked out the gist of what had happened a bit early on, so I wasn’t all that surprised by some of the twists. But hey, maybe that’s just more about me than the actual book.

I definitely recommend this book.

Peter Kenny is fantastic

I’ve always had trouble focusing on reading, so I decided to give audiobooks a try. I listened to the previous book in this series first, and the narration by Peter Kenny is the thing that sealed the deal for me, and this book is no different. The book itself is undoubtedly fantastic, and it is very enjoyable as a stand alone book. I will most certainly be continuing on with my journey through the Witcher series on Audible. Strongly recommend.

The narration by Peter Kenny makes this a delightful read. This is only the second audiobook I’ve listened to, and only the first non-fiction book. My experience has been wonderful and I will most certainly continue listening to audiobooks, largely because of how pleasant this book and the narration was.
