What did you like best about Babayaga? What did you like least?
I "read" this for my book club with bn and it was a good read. I'm very glad that I purchased the audio book, otherwise this story could have gotten away from me. The story is winding in some places and the narrator did a weird whispery voice for Zoya, but the guy voices were really good and I was quite amused by the character of Brandon.
I least liked the "witches songs" as they confused me and I lost the thread of what was going on in the story through that bit, but they weren't overtly long and didn't ruin the story.
What made the experience of listening to Babayaga the most enjoyable?
This is an entertaining story, an original mash-up of several genres, and especially fun for a listening experience.
What other book might you compare Babayaga to and why?
It really is not much like anything else I've read.
Any additional comments?
It is not serious literature, and the characters are pretty thin, but it is very clever. Every time I thought I had it pegged, it shifted into a different kind of story- yet it hung together surprisingly well. It made for excellent commuting reading, keeping me amused, involved and diverted, without requiring deep thought. I recommend it highly, especially for this purpose!
