What did you love best about Ivory and Bone?
I loved that this novel uses the esteemed tradition of storytelling, which crosses so many cultures all along the timeline of mankind.
And when so many YA novels have imagined what a dystopian future might look like, it was refreshing to read a young adult novel that shows us what life was really like a long, long, long time ago.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Even though we spend most of the story with Kol, I thought all four of the brothers had outstanding moments.
What does Michael Curran-Dorsano bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Michael Curran-Dorsano sounds like what I expected Kol to sound like, and he does an excellent job of bringing Kol's story to life.
Also, it might be harder to really get the masculine voice of Kol's character, if you only read the book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Definitely. I would listen to it for long stretches at a time.
Any additional comments?
The author is an awesome person, and her debut was worth the wait. So excited for Book 2.

This was a surprisingly enjoyable listen. The narrator has a soothing quality to his voice, which is very relaxing (not to say that the action scenes weren't intense - they were!)
The plot felt a little bit like a classic folk tale - I half expected it to be like an Aesop's Fable with a moral to learn at the end. That being said, there were some plot twists that were exciting and there was quite a bit of mystery that kept me interested to learn more. The characters were surprisingly realistic and empathetic.
All around a decent listen.
