As a 57 year old male, I might not be "qualified" to enjoy the Lamplighter trilogy (it being a Young Adult read), but I have enjoyed every minute of it. I became very attached to Rossamünd and the other characters in the story. The narration of Humphrey Bower is always amazing, but in this case the excellence was due as much to the writing as the narration. If you are a person who is willing to let his or her imagination roam free, I challenge you to listen to the this trilogy (begin with the first book, of course). You will not be disappointed.
While some trilogies end with a whimper, rather than a bang, the ending of the final book (Factotum) was unpredictable and satisfying.
Monster appreciation to Mr Cornish for his magnificent creation. The most original world since the Discworld swam into view. I luxuriated in the amazing language that Mr Cornish had created, and Mr Bower does a mighty job of narration. It is only a pity that the Explicarium was not also included.I am about to go back and re-listen to all the parts of the triolibris.
I love this trilogy. I want to know more of what happens! It's just not enough!!!
What disappointed you about Factotum?
Just dragged on a bit at the end
What was most disappointing about D.M. Cornish’s story?
Was a bit long winded
Any additional comments?
The first 2 books in the series kept my imagination but I'm struggling with the ending….almost have to persuade myself to finish it.
