What did you like best about Bookworm? What did you like least?
Loved the story, and the way it unfolded, disliked the narrators tone
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The narrator's tone was fine when doing the accents for the different characters, whoever when reading the main narration has a really affected distant tone that just grated from the start. Wish I had downloaded a sample first.

Rated R for mild, pervasive, sex talk and scenes.
THIS is a totally different Nuttall tale. Everything seemed like a different author, which is great when the author changes genre directions. However, this could be Emily's world (Schooled in Magic) centuries after Emily. Elaine is another mildly magic girl who receives an infusion of power beyond her innate abilities, but she is more grounded than Emily and displays none of Emily's annoying waffling over love interests or what she wants to be.
The bookworm concept is wonderful! Elaine's acceptance of her situation, and then her willingness to sacrifice herself to save the world if necessary are good character development. The outcome of the story is believable and satisfying and not your typical fairy tale. This book stands alone or could have sequels.Not for children despite the genre.
The narration is very not-American, pleasant and easy to listen to.
