Great stories and narration

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Midway through Carol Oneir's Hundredth Dream, distortion makes it impossible to listen for five minutes. (Checked on three different devices.)

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character is always, always Cat Chant. Chrestomanci is wonderful, but Cat is far easier to relate to and so beautifully imperfectly human.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Anthony Head?

Absolutely. His diction is clear, pacing smooth and makes sense of the story, and he creates distinct speaking patterns for the characters without exaggerating vocal characteristics.

Was Mixed Magics worth the listening time?

It was! The format of short stories makes it great listening when I don't have enough time to settle into a longer narrative.
