What made the experience of listening to Nevernight the most enjoyable?
Good narrator; unique narrative style
What other book might you compare Nevernight to and why?
Name of the Wind, but with assassins
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. Absorbing, but may be better in segments, as the content and style can be rich.
Any additional comments?
Highly recommended. Book One of a trilogy (the others aren't out yet), but it wraps up enough - no need to wait.

I bought this book to kill time until another book was released and I'm sooooo glad I did. I was a little put off by the cadence and slightly odd tone of the narrator but the story was great! It contains just enough the popular fantasy elements (romance, revenge, grit, magic, mystery) to keep the story engaging. It's definitely a book meant only for adults.

Wasn't expecting much from this tbh. Especially as it was billed as a YA book. However, I'm thoroughly coverted. It's a lovely, flowing and captivating tale. However, it did take me a little bit to get used to the narrator's way of reading (he has wierd "sing song" way he phrases the words) but either I got used to it very quickly or he eased up on his peculiar reading style. Don't let that put you off though. The story starts off slowly and becomes a page turner before you know it! This books definately stands out from the sea of mediocre fantasy books out there. I was impressed with it. Definately give it a go if you are hesitating.

Was slow and confusing to start but morphed into a brilliant book. Narrator was excellent. Can't wait for the next book.

I enjoyed this book. The witty writing and interesting plot held me captive. I look forward to reading the rest in this series.

Horribly overdone prose, metaphors that make no sense, lazy world-building via footnotes. Disappointing overall read.
