Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

undecided

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Shorter... it was unnecessarily drawn out in places, far too meandering.

And **SPOILER ALERT*** I found the ending miserable, depressing & unsatisfying, it ruined it for me.

What does Edwina Wren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great accent & characterisation

If this book were a film would you go see it?

maybe, I think knowing the ending in advance would make the story more enjoyable in this case. I've never read a fantasy with such a miserable ending before & it grated against what I was expecting & I actually felt quite cross! I read fantasy to escape the **** in my own life, I don't need stories to depress me further. But if I knew what I was getting into then it's different. I think it would make an excellent adaptation, particularly with the renewed interested in Norse mythology of late.
