I was sad when it ended and am hoping there will be a Volume 2 soon. Storyline was different and in a good way. Narrator is pretty good, a couple of the accents are a bit sketchy but not enough to put me off listening.

Took me a little while to get used to the narrator but the story soon took care of that. Loved the story and the characters. The humour tucked in here and there didn't bother me either it all just seemed to fit. I am glad I listened and will listen again.

I just could not get into this book even though I love this type of book. The narrator didn't really float my boat so maybe that was why.

Great read

Would you consider the audio edition of A Discovery of Witches to be better than the print version?

HAving not read the printed version I cannot answer. This audible version I have thorughly enjoyed, took me a couple of chapters to get into it but was then thoroughly hooked.

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

Lovely narration, seems to drag you in with her voice.

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

A few places actually reduced me to tears which rarely happens which I have put down to good writing and good narration.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to get the next in the series :) My only complaint is there are some rather long pauses between chapters which I find highly annoying.

just not doing it for me

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

not at all, just cannot get into the story it just seems to drone on and get nowhere.

Do you think Cephrael's Hand needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Having not managed to finish the first book i have no wish to hear the others and have removed them from my wishlist.

Where does Dawn of Wonder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This has to have been possibly one of the best I have listened to. Totally captured my imagination.

What did you like best about this story?

Storyline is excellent and the characters are so well described and you get to know them so well that they feel like people you know.

What does Tim Gerard Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The storyline trots along at a lively pace, the narration is excellent (I'm fussy about narrators and I'm very easily irritated but not with this book) it keeps you totally encapsulated in the story.

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

Both at times, thereis some humour in this tale and also sad parts but nothing that detracts from the enjoyment.

Any additional comments?

I am saddened to have come to the end of the book, I am keenly awaiting the next which isn't out yet!! :(
