Publisher's Summary

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around - and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he's been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it.
Then a stunning opportunity presents itself in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever. What happened in Weep 200 years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving? The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries - including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo's dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?
In this sweeping and breathtaking new novel by National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the New York Times best-selling Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, the shadow of the past is as real as the ghosts who haunt the citadel of murdered gods. Fall into a mythical world of dread and wonder, moths and nightmares, love and carnage.

Wow wow wow

I almost hated the ending, but it the last chapter saved it. Laini Taylor is a genius!!! I'm glad she was born. Every time I think the story can't possibly get any better, she goes ahead and proves me wrong.

All best stories are sweet, and full of monsters!

Half baked

First if all, Steve West is always good. That was not the problem.

The problem with this book is that it starts of great, struggles with where to go from there and finally ends it all with a cliffhanger, leaving the listener annoyed, rather than intrigued.

Not recommended.

Shocking Discovery!

Took me by surprise.
Was struggling for my next listen;
this seemed like the least worse option.
What a wonderful surprise! It’s a beautifully
told tale of awe, wonder, and possibilities.
Roll on the next instalment!

Strange the story

Fantastic storyline, as ever with Laini Taylor's amazing ideas, narrated superbly by Steve West. This proved to be one of the best audible books I have so far enjoyed. Thank you! The anticipation of the sequel is almost too much to bear!

Amazing story... good narrator

What made the experience of listening to Strange the Dreamer the most enjoyable?

The story itself. Laini Taylor tells a story like no one I've read (some caliber as Brandon Sanderson) and she has earned a place among my most favorite authors of all time. The narrator also added a particular je ne sais quoi that was difficult to get used to at first (I think mostly because of the accent) but became endearing to me by the end.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot and characters - I feel like I know them and that Weep is just reachable beyond the horizon.

What about Steve West’s performance did you like?

He was really good at keeping tempo with what he was reading. It almost felt as if he lived and breathed what was happening, and I think I'll have a hard time going on to listening to someone else now that I am used to the way he speaks.

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

The ending - it brought tears to my eyes.
