I wish I had written this.........

Would you listen to The Book of Lost Things again? Why?

I have not finished listening yet because for a change I dont want the experience to end.
The story is gripping and grim, the narration is enthralling as is the story in every sense. Its brutal and kind like all good fairy stories should be.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The 7 dwarves

Which character – as performed by Nick Rawlinson – was your favourite?

snow white

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

made me shiver

Any additional comments?

soon I will have to sit and listen to the end but am putting it off till its dark and cold once again

Sleepy

A different narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The long, laborious, unnecessary pauses for "dramatic" effect put me right off and made me impatient with the narrator. I found myself falling asleep.
