Great Story, but performance could be better

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

Yes. The story is original, and although the narration starts out rough it gets much better.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Caeser. He was absolutely hilarious.

What three words best describe Justine Vannucci’s voice?

Bright, expressive, at some moments grating

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed throughout most of the book, but there was a part that made me bawl like a little girl.

Any additional comments?

I don't have anything to compare this to because it's that unique. There's a bit of obscure mythology mixed in with a solid story base. It's not high brow, but not everything has to be. It's fun. I wouldn't recommend this for children, though.

Very entertaining dark comedy

Would you listen to Children of the Pomme again? Why?

Yes, very entertaining characters and original storyline.

What did you like best about this story?

What started out as a what seemed to be slightly formulaic turned into a very well told story that made me laugh, but still had enough emotion and heart to win me over.

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

The character Emily is voiced very well.

Any additional comments?

The narrator seems to stumble through the beginning but finds her place and does a good job of telling the story. The story might be rather offensive to some, but I enjoyed it for its dark humor while managing to tell an original and engaging story with some very human and touching elements and well written action scenes.
