What did you like best about School of Deaths? What did you like least?
I liked the surprising worldbuilding for this story. The Grim Reapers aren't actually dead, just abducted kids. That's weird.
Would you be willing to try another book from Christopher Mannino? Why or why not?
I would like to know what the other groups in this universe want, and what the "living" scythes really do when they reap someone.
What about Joel Froomkin’s performance did you like?
I thought the performance was pretty good. There were a couple occasions where I missed a change from dialog to narration or vice versa.
Was School of Deaths worth the listening time?
I think the mysteries are intriguing, and I liked the strong female protagonist.
Any additional comments?
I got a little tired of the torments and callousness of the school staff and activities, which seemed unnecessary during most the story, but were a little more understandable when the school's background was explained at the end.

I really liked this book and wasn't sure when I began... I was worried it would be another kind of Harry Potter/Hunger Games knock-off...but it's got great characters and some really interesting world building. Susie is whisked away from her high-school existence to the School of Deaths - the first female to be chosen in memory. The voicing is excellent - the narrator does a great job creating a credible female lead without resorting to cliche and the other voices are clear and really well performed. It's a theatrical reading that has a lot of energy and brings out the magic and mystery of the world. Imagine Harry Potter meets Dead Like Me and you're on the right track. I was impressed, cared about the characters and look forward to book two.

Would you consider the audio edition of School of Deaths to be better than the print version?
Yes. Really good narration that pulled me into the story. A really great audiobook.
What was one of the most memorable moments of School of Deaths?
The thirteen-year-old female protagonist captured won me over from the start. She was determined and yet vulnerable, in a normal and likeable way. I trusted she'd make the right decisions in the many twists and turns she faced throughout the story.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Suzie lands in a new world--a world without other woman. She must cope and deal with the taunts and challenges of the others because she is special. And the story just grows from the.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Enjoyment. A really great story.
