I'm what you would call an older woman :-), but I always love a good Cinderella spin off. This book was a nice and well done. The storyline was modernized and well written. If you were looking for a light fun read this is it. Regarding the audiobook though, there are a lot of editing errors, such as repeated sentences. But I easily overlooked those as I enjoyed the story so much.

Poston does a brilliant job of lovingly grafting the odds and ends of contemporary geek culture over the age-old tale of Cinderella. We all know the story, and all the re-imaginings can easily come off as worn and tired. But Poston's retelling, like any good fairy tale told and retold over time, gives us the heartbeat of the time and space from which it springs. The writing is brisk and humorous, and the characters are constructed with care and wit. Stevens and Morris provide solid performances, and their voices serve Poston's narrative brilliantly. I enjoyed it immensely!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I'd absolutely recommend this book it's a very entertaining listen.
What about Eileen Stevens and Tristan Morris ’s performance did you like?
They were generally very good, but someone should have made sure they both knew how to pronounce some of the words associated with the geekdoms the characterd talked about - I mean not knowing how to pronounce Dalek is a pretty obvious mistake.

What made the experience of listening to Geekerella the most enjoyable?
The perspectives and the two actors were phenomenal, I really enjoyed the change of pace present in each new chapter
What other book might you compare Geekerella to, and why?
Unenchanted by Chanda Hahnn is similar with the strong sassy female lead who may not necessarily understand everything but still powers forward.
Which character – as performed by Eileen Stevens and Tristan Morris – was your favourite?
Sage was so sassy and I really appreciated the LGBT+ representation
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I tried to listen to this in one hit but i fell asleep, I just NEEDED to know what happened
