Excellent story.

Love the characters. Had to rename my cats, Filth, Pond Scum, Crazy Bastard and Turd. The narration is excellent as well. The story put me in mind of the audible versions of Joe Abercrombie's work. I am looking forward to the second book.

Very Good!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Very interesting story and well presented. It has many twists and turns if not a tad dark in story line. However, good and interesting listen!

A terrific story

If you could sum up Riddle in Stone in three words, what would they be?

This isn't a book I would normally listen to -- but I'm really glad I did. It was an entertaining and an overall great story.

Loved this book! Refreshing take on fantasy genre

Would you consider the audio edition of Riddle in Stone to be better than the print version?

Don't know. Only listened to the audio book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Riddle in Stone?

Three come to mind immediately. Ed in the bar, being chased out by the storyteller. Could really feel his pain. Meeting the goblins, Kravel and Gurting. LOL. Who would have thought bad guys could be so cruel and funny. Honestly. They're brilliant. Probably the best characters I've ever come across. And then the ending...

Which scene was your favorite?

Meeting Kravel and Gurting in the tower. I still have to chuckle. "What? Behind his tears?" LOL.

Any additional comments?

What makes this book so special is that it's character, Ed, isn't this muscled guy who is good looking and everything. He's just this ordinary guy who is incredibly flawed, but in a way I can relate to. He is torn by constant self-doubt, but tries to do the right thing. And in the end...it's hard to explain without giving things away. He isn't exactly a "hero", not in the typical sense, but he's different. He's the friend every girl wants to date, but never gets out of the friendzone. Touching and unique. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Wonderfully enjoyable easy read!

Where does Riddle in Stone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the category of easy reads it is #1. By easy read I mean it does not get bogged down with political strife, intrigue and messy relationships. I also enjoy reading the heavier novels (Abercrombie 's First Law trilogy and the books that followed, Martin's Game of Thrones series until he pulled a Jordan. Martin will probably pass away of old age before he finishes it).

What does Fleet Cooper bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Theatre. He provides wonderful voices for the characters that fit the personality the writer has presented them. He also brings the non-character-speaking words to life. If this were a movie and the scene was heart-pounding-on-the-edge-of-your-seat, Cooper's inflection as he reads the scene intensifies and you can feel the excitement. This is were a movie would have intense background music intensifying to the climax of the scene. He does this as well with reading disappointment, fear, etc.
He does all of this without overpowering the text or the story. This is the first book I have listened to with his narration and I dare to say "Sorry Michael Page, you are my number two favorite narrator now." *hugs*

Any additional comments?

I have often seen the question something like 'Is this a book you would have wanted to listened to in one setting?' The answer to that question, had they asked it, would be a resounding YES!!!!

Good Adventure!

I loved the characters and enjoyed the story for the most part. My 4 stars is because of the continuing darker and more horrible events that happen throughout the book. I don't enjoy the feeling of despair and always like to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Edmund was a unique and fascinating hero.
