David Suchet does a great job and I loved listening to him read.

I wonder if there is a better way to be able to navigate the book though? The Bible is a massive text made up of lots of little books and while some people do sit down to listen to it from beginning to end I think most people jump around in it a lot.. Do we really have to randomly click around chapter numbers before we can find the part of it that we're interested in listening to? Is it just a limitation of the Audible software that it can't distinguish and label the different books in the Bible for us to select?

Anyway.. that's my only beef.. it's really well read and I'd listen to it a lot more if I could more easily navigate the book.

I was completely enthralled by this story from start to finish. So well written and excellently narrated.

Another great example of Brandon Sanderson's skill in world building. An interesting story performed well.

Hilariously bad Aussie accent

This book is worth listening to if only for the hilariously terribly terrible Australian accent!

Church History can be pretty dense and boring but Shelley's storytelling style made it digestible and interesting! Nice work!

Interesting but not as good as his others

I enjoyed the book.. It's a crazy adventure that really sucked me in 😊 but it wasn't quite as good as some of his others!

A cool idea but not a heaps interesting story unfortunately! I had a few chuckles by not many, I think it tried too hard and that irritated me. As for the larger story.. Guy just going through the process of learning wizard stuff and then some drama tacked on the end that never felt very compelling. The performance was good, if a little over done. Others will enjoy this book but just wasn't for me I guess!

Fun story well performed

I quite enjoyed this book. The concept behind the story was cool and imaginative and the characters enjoyable. I haven't read anything else by Nicole Galland (I will now!) but I love how Neal Stephenson's mind works. Some people might want things to move a bit faster but I enjoy the way they delve into details and flesh stuff out. There are a couple of dodgey accents in the performance but it didn't matter too much.

Fascinating

What a fascinating world.. I found myself thinking about this book all the time and trying to explain it to people which was quite hard to do! Loved it
