Publisher's 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.

Best fiction book based on a fiction book I've ever read

give me more!!

I'm so obsessed with Carry On, (it's my third time reading it, first two times were with the paperback) and I was pretty iffy with listening to it in case it might change it too much for me, but Euan Morton did a fantastic job recreating it and I crave more of Rainbows magickal world than I have before, honestly. Reading it and listening to it gave me two entirely different perspectives and I was not dissapointed.

Full of love and fun

Loved it! Naration was okay, character voices where pretty consistant, only one scene that was a little harder to follow. Not deep or meaningfull but a sweet story with a lot of love.

Loved it.

The narrator did an excellent job. A fun book, and a great listen on the way to work.

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.

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?

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

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.
