Incredibly well performed
I absolutely loved this book, it was a huge leap ahead of the author's Grisha Trilogy, set in the same universe with completely new characters and a new and gripping story. The multiple narrators really brought it to life. I would definitely recommend this audio book.

Flawless fantasy heist
Where does Six of Crows rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This was one of my favourite books that I have listened to in a while. I bought after reading a few review on a whim, and found that it was engaging, fun and original.
Who was your favorite character and why?
It is hard to pick one as they are all so well developed and have such complex motivation. I loved the wraith and nina, but they were all great
What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The story switches perspectives, although it is narrated in 3rd person, and each character has a different narrator, giving the performance texture. This also helps to make it easier to follow and remember who you're listening to! In other books, I have found that this technique can be gimmicky, but it adds to the story and enables the author to reveal and hide different aspects of the story well, building suspense and adding depth.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
I don't know... the plot is too unique and interesting to be summarised in one line.
Any additional comments?
The narrative is great, the plot is original and the characters are full. The author has not had to resort to using old tropes and, although some of the romance involved is a bit unoriginal, it added to rather than detracted from the story as a whole. I really enjoyed this book!

This book is everything!
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. The narrators did a fantastic job bringing the story and their characters to life. I easily fell into the world and not just the first time, but every time I had to pause and then pick it is back up later. The story is enthralling and absolutely enjoyable for anyone. It has a lot of action and a little magic. The concept reminds me of Ocean's 11 but with magic and violence. Leigh Bardugo does a fantastic job of bringing these characters together to pull of a heist and the development of the story and characters was well done. I also really enjoyed how she tied in their backstories and how everything just clicked together. I recommend this to anyone, especially those looking for a good kick butt book featuring a seemingly impossible heist and some of the best characters around.

So while reading reviews, I saw a lot of people being upset over there being 7 narrators. Personally I loved that every character had a voice to it. Sure everyone's rendition of Kaz was mildly different but I loved every single narrator. A round of applause for their ability to bring the story to life. And now a round of applause for Leigh Bardugo, who crafted this masterpiece. Sure you have to get through a mildly confusing first chapter, but it didn't take me long at all to be completely invested in this story and these characters. I loved every single one of them. The dynamic between Nina and Matthias was pretty hot (seriously, I wanted more!). There are so many little twists to this book, so many character complexities, so much cool world-building. Inej is a freaking ninja! Kaz is a criminal mastermind! I'm suffering a severe book hangover until the second one comes out in FREAKING SEPTEMBER UGH. Seriously, read this book, you'll love it, I promise.
