I really enjoyed this. If you like coming of age stories where a protagonist has to apply problem solving to overcome difficult situations and underdog encounters then you will probably like this.
The style is a bit unique, and I can see a huge influence from D&D or similar. The majority of the "fights" are dungeon type encounters, and other puzzle rooms reminiscent of games and tabletop gaming.
I really enjoyed it, but I could see some might have issues with the pacing in the middle-end of the book.
The narrator was excellent.

Books I like.
Name of the wind series
Anything from Brandon Sanderson
The warded man series
The light bringer series.
I say this to you in hopes that if you liked those books you will probably like this one as well. I won't tell you about the book as it does matter what I say. Nick is a very good reader makes the book easy to listen to. Looking forward to the next book.

What made the experience of listening to Sufficiently Advanced Magic the most enjoyable?
The narrator was exceptional and voiced the character he was supposed to be quite well. His female voices were all fairly convincing and I quite appreciate that. The book has a great balance of magic and worldbuilding elements and although it can be slow at times when it picks up BOY does it pick up. I'm furious that it's over and I can't immediately begin on the next in the series even in print.
What other book might you compare Sufficiently Advanced Magic to and why?
It's like grown up harry potter but significantly more interesting.
What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?
His female voices and his ability to voice the perfect emotion for the character he was supposed to be. Excellent work.
Any additional comments?
