great author!! will certainly look for more books by this author!! narrator was great, too. only thing that could make the narrator better is if she actually sang the songs in the book, which would be tough because we don't know the tunes!!
reading the songs as poetry is just fine with me, too, though.
I really enjoyed this take on the Snow White story and that our heroine was not gorgeous like Snow White usually is. This is such a clever re-telling with many elements I didn't see coming. The narration was very good and generally seamless, although anyone buying this should be aware that in the land where this book takes place, the characters like to sing a lot. This means that the narrator has to speak all the songs (and there are many of them, and some are very long). This wouldn't be an issue if you were reading the book because then you could skim down the length of the songs and see what they were about. With the audio book you have to listen to every line--even the repeats of some of the choruses, which grew somewhat irritating. Still, if you enjoy poetry recitations, or can tune out for a bit, or don't listen in the car and are good at using your FF button, this issue shouldn't be a problem for you. It certainly didn't ruin the story for me, which was generally delightful!
