Great Read

What made the experience of listening to Cauldron the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed what appears to be the end of the series book. It was fast paced and unlike one review I read did not leave any unanswered questions.

What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great reader.

Not the return to the clouds I expect

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If you've read the earlier books in the series you might as well read this one. However I did not like the answers to the questions this book explorers. So I'd recommend it if you really wanted to but it's not the best in the series.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

"Really" Of all the answers to Omega Clouds, what are they, what makes them, etc. and this is all you could come up with?

What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

She is excellent. She was the reason I pressed on finishing the book.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?


Any additional comments?

It was nice to have Hutch up front and center in this one.
