What made the experience of listening to Strange the Dreamer the most enjoyable?

The story itself. Laini Taylor tells a story like no one I've read (some caliber as Brandon Sanderson) and she has earned a place among my most favorite authors of all time. The narrator also added a particular je ne sais quoi that was difficult to get used to at first (I think mostly because of the accent) but became endearing to me by the end.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot and characters - I feel like I know them and that Weep is just reachable beyond the horizon.

What about Steve West’s performance did you like?

He was really good at keeping tempo with what he was reading. It almost felt as if he lived and breathed what was happening, and I think I'll have a hard time going on to listening to someone else now that I am used to the way he speaks.

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

The ending - it brought tears to my eyes.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I wouldn't really change anything about this book - it just wasn't my type of book.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The least interesting bit was that it was rather predictable... and tried way too hard to be "weird," and I really did not enjoy the Voice of Night Vale chapters. The most interesting aspect, I suppose, would have been the library.

Which character – as performed by Cecil Baldwin – was your favourite?

Perhaps Josh...

Could you see Welcome to Night Vale being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Yes probably.
