good book

Any additional comments?

it wasn't as good as the first book but definitely better than the second one. i get the author have a great imagination and master of words but honestly sometimes it get a bit confusing that i have to read the same paragraph twice to understand what happened. i really wish she would stop narrating her books.

A Lovely Third Entry

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

I would, have, and will again. While I still think the first book is so far the best in the series, the first book is -also- one of my favorite books I've ever read, so it's a bit of an unfair comparison. This book is incredibly clever, and while it is very funny, it is also a touching story. It also brings back the author as the narrator, which is -fantastic-.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two?

One of the most memorable moments is when the yeti punches the car on the moon and the events immediately ensuing. Seriously though- do you need to hear more than that, in this book (with a touching and well-crafted story), a yeti punches a car on the moon? Isn't that -alone- enough to get you interested?


Which character – as performed by Catherynne M. Valente – was your favorite?

I love September to death. It's hard between her, Saturday, and A-L, but I think September wins out.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There's a good one at the end, but in lieu of that because of spoilers, I'll pick the one when September meets her younger self. I really liked that moment- it was a neat connection, and really nicely encapsulated September's deep wishes.


Any additional comments?

This whole series is fantastic- the author is simply amazing, both as an author and as a narrator. I am very glad she came back for this book after not narrating the second, and I hope she continues. She is a really gifted writer- very clever without being pretentious.
