First, I wanna say that Tess Irondale, who seems to have emerged solely for Kay's books, or has adopted a new moniker, has given a fantastic delivery. Easily one of my favorite narrators now. If she did adopt a moniker for these books, I wish I knew what other name she goes by to track down more titles. I hope to see more of her here.
This is a really fun story. It has much of the whole "transported into fantasy world" trope, but the characters are good and the story fun and interesting.
Others have said the story is too short, and I think that's because we like the characters at the end. They're fun and interesting, they grow and become more powerful, they make friends and lovers, and, generally, make us eager to spend more time with them.
I disagree that it's too short because it's a complete story, and it's satisfying when you're done. Kay could have pushed longer but he'd have had to introduce a handful of subplots and I think the whole thing would have gotten convoluted fast.
As it stands, you'll have a really fun 4 hours, and those in the DnD know will catch a few references.
Every DM on the planet wants to do something like this, but I think Kay nailed it here. :)

What does Tess Irondale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
great performance, more lively than if read by myself
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
yes, but also because it is only 3 hours long
