Only a modern master like Gregory Maguire could spin a tale as frantic, funny, and farcical as The Next Queen of Heaven.

Frantic, Funny and Farcical??
I really enjoy Gregory Maguire's work - usually. I have read and/or listened to a number of his books and have loved and recommended them whether the focus was children's or adult entertainment. I can't recommend this book to anyone. I listened all the way to the end, went back and replayed several parts, and I STILL don't know what portion of the book was intended as humor, which as satirical content and what was meant to elevate my social consciousness. The fact that the narrator sounds like a young girl may lead some to believe this is a children's book - It Is Not! The language is foul, the subject matter is sick in some spots and just plain sad in others. I have never written a reader review this negative before, but this book really deserves it. Don't waste your time and money. If you love Maguire and simply must read the book - get it from the library.

Narration is horrible
This is the worst selection of a narrator that I've encountered on this site. She sounds like a squealing munchkin, painful and flat out horrible. Im sure the book is well worth the read, but not on Audible. Ugh!
