Would you listen to Legendarium again? Why?
Yes, I really enjoyed the the hero's journey through the different story settings, the full bodied feeling of the world, and the metamorphosis or the alternate earth to this earth. Well worth a 2nd listen!
What did you like best about this story?
The original setting of an alternate Earth that changes slowly to our Earth through the hero's folly. I think this is a really clever twist on the book's setting that I have not encountered before.
Which character – as performed by Robert Rossmann – was your favorite?
Allistar was my favourite. The voice that Mr. Rossmann used fit seamlessly with the description and the dialogue. It really brought the character to life. My one hang up about this story was that the dialogue once or twice sounds a bit forced, but I can't tell for sure if it is the writing style or delivery that doesn't nail it. This only happens in a couple of small spots, though.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were several places where I laughed out loud, which is rare for me in a book. I really enjoyed the dry post-zombie-apocalypse humour and the modern literary references.
Any additional comments?
This book reminds me Strongly of Thursday Next with a lot of Jim Butcher's modern, pop culture style. A really enjoyable listen for the adventure-loving geek with a splash of British humour.

Liked the concept and how it was told, great perrormance. I just thought it ended too quickly, there should have been more stories, more worlds, and not just the quick fix at the end.
