A must read for parents of introvert kids

In this follow up Cain focuses on how it is to grow up as an introvert in a very extrovert school system. She shares stories about typical obstacles for introverts and how to overcome them.
Even though it wasn't as great as Quiet I really enjoyed it and found many useful tools here too.

Meh..

I really har a busy time this summer and decided to go for an easy read. Sadly this one did not live up to my expectations. I had trouble connecting with the main caracter and found the story quite cliche. Sorry guys.

Loved the atmosphere

This is a short book but the best i listened to this summer. I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the story, it's creepy and, at the same time, quite cozy. I'll probably pick this one up again a late winter evening.

Good concept but quite boring

Well, the discription of this book made it quite intriguing so I went for it. But even if the concept is really cool it took me way to long to get hold of the actual story. And by then I had become quite tired of it. I can't say I was overly excited about the ending either.

Fantastic!

Probably the best audiobook I've listened to so far. It had everything it needed. It was just fantastic! Must read!

So beautiful!

I've read these books a few times before, but I really wanted to hear Pullman read them himself. And it was so beautiful, the cast were amazing!
Even though I've read them all before I don't think I'll ever get tired of them. The story is really unique and clever and so well told. I will read these to my future kids until their ears bleed (if that's possible..).

Utterly butterly amayonnaising!!!

I mostly listened to this in the park and on the bus, even though this was a bad choice. I kept holding my hand on my mouth to try and strangle the laughs. It was seriously hilarious! And the narration is just perfect! I will absolutely listen to this one again.

Important and very interesting!

Like Cain says 1/3 of all people are introvert. That's quite a lot considering our world is mostly extrovert friendly.
As an introvert I really appreciated this book, but I think it is just as important for extroverts to read. She emphasizes the importance of having both types in the society and how to better understand each other.
She writes so nice with lots of stories and comparisons and the narration is great. Loved it!

Should have picked another narrator

I had a hard time concentrating on the story actually. All I could hear was the heavy breathing sounds and mouth noises of the narrator. I've always hated these sounds so 10 hours close to my ears wasn't really enjoyable...

Well done, Laini!

Dreams of Gods and Monsters is a very fitting conclusion to the trilogy. I was afraid that the ending might disappoint me a bit, but it really didn't. I am very happy with the final chapter of this adventure.

The only reason I didn't give it a five star is because it didn't need to be that long. I wouldn't say it's dragged because she writes so beautifully, but compared to the previous books I needed some extra time finishing it. And just to comment the performance: Hvam's narration is outstanding as always.

This is absolutely a great book (especially as audiobook), and I'm sure all who liked the first two books will love the ending as much as I do!

ENJOY!
