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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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.
