Not quite sure why everyone raved about this one. I listened to the first 5 chapters (about an hour in) and was just so bored! I got it for free through an editor's pick, I'm very glad I didn't pay for it.

The voice acting was very good though, easy to listen to and nice clear tone.

Very Enjoyable 😀

The Fever Crumb series was a great trilogy which acts as a prequel set for The Mortal Engines quartet. Whilst I didn't enjoy Fever's adventures *quite* as much as I enjoyed Tom Natsworthy and Hestor Shaw's in the original, I do think these books are worth reading for their contribution to the development of this world and its history. Recommended for fans - if you haven't read Mortal Engines, start there instead 😀

Very Enjoyable 😀

Weird. And not really in a good way.

NOT recommended. As a huge fan of A Wrinkle in Time, I was excited to discover more books about Meg and Charles Wallace and the Twins. However, this book is just weird. The concept is weird, the characters are bizarre, the events are peculiar. It's like some type of off-centre, eccentric, drug induced, fantasy/dreamscape nonsense. Very dissatisfied and disappointed that this is where the author took the series (the third book, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, is no better). With Wrinkle, L'engle got the balance of adventure/bizarre just right, this book however took crazy a bit too far.

I ended up returning it for credit, and am now pretending Wrinkle is a one-hit wonder.

Disappointed, and just couldn't finish it.

As a huge fan of A Wrinkle in Time, I was so disappointed in A Swiftly Tilting Planet. It was weird, and kept following other characters, when all I wanted was a true adventure with Charles Wallace. I kept listening for much longer than I should have, and once I realised that no-one was forcing me to listen and that I just didn't care how it ended, I turned it off and have no desire to finish it (1hr 30mins left on it). I won't be getting anything else by this author. I'm calling Wrinkle a one-hit wonder.

Loved it.

Highly Recommended. An open, honest retelling of his journey from pre-diagnosis through to public advocate for PD. He covers the balancing of disease, coping, working and family. I just wish it wasn't an abridged version!

Absolutely Loved It!!

A captivating story of what seems to be a simple love triangle. The ending was quite unexpected, and the journey to get there was well worth it. If you think you know where its going, you're probably wrong. Well read by the narrators. Highly Recommended.

Loved it! Highly Recommend!

A wonderfully unique book in a period of reboots and copycats. The two points of time and the two women are well developed and intertwine with each other maintaining listener interest through until the conclusion. Well delivered narration. Highly Recommended.

Highly Recommend this series!

Loved The Passage Trilogy. A really interesting spin on themes which are extremely popular in publishing and tv/movies atm. The first book was my favourite, but all three work well together and round out the story to a satisfying conclusion.
