Summary

Simon Snow just wants to relax and savour his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains, where maybe he'll be safe.

Simon can't even enjoy the fact that his roommate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can't stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you're the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savour anything.

Based on the characters Simon and Baz who featured in Rainbow Rowell's best-selling Fangirl, Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.

Totally magical

I'd recommend this book to any Harry Potter fan or follower of Mike Carey's Unwritten series. Funny from start to finish, a really interesting take on the fictional physics of magic, the collective unconscious and the evolution of language. Some brilliant and obvious plot staples that hide in plain sight all the big twists and, cannot overstate by refreshing an LGBT+ fantasy novel. 10/10 will absolutely listen again.

Entertaining, satirical and Super gay <3

I loved it. The voicing was perfect. Characterization (changes for the women and other men and all) was on point.

And I wish that there was more of Baz and Simon to read.

Loved it.

The poetry in the mundane everyday. Witty & powerful in her telling of a story about life & things that happen to be.

So good.

As much fun as reading the book. Really enjoyed it. Took a while to adjust to Simon's voice as it was gruffer than what I'd had in my head. But still excellent.

I love this book

I absolutely love this book!!! The plot is exciting and we'll thought out, but my favourite thing was the characters and their relationships, especially Simon and Baz

Really enjoyed it!

Loved it so well done. As a Harry Potter and Fangirl fan I was a little scared I would be disappointed but I was not at all . It was great and I really liked Simon and Baz.

Rainbow Rowell is an amazing story teller.

When's the next one coming out?

Great story, really captivating

A great story, especially for those that have read Fangirl too.
Some parts had too many flashbacks and towards the end it felt a little rushed.
Very fun. I definitely recommend!

SO good!

I've struggled to keep listening to books due to school work and a low attention span but I could not bring myself to stop listening to it! Simon and Baz are absolute sweethearts, the characters are all flawed and developed, the writing style is SO perfectly a well-written fanfiction that you find of AO3 with "Angst with a happy ending" and "slow burn" in the tags! Can't wait for the next instalment in the series!!

Great narration

This book was a lot of fun. The twists and turns if the plot were a little *too* foregrounded, removing the element of surprise. But the characters were endearing and very well fleshed out, and I bought the romance wholesale. The re-imagining of chosen one narratives was fresh and enjoyable.

The brilliant narrator really gave each character a unique voice, which I wouldn't necessarily have done in my head if I read the text.
