Great story, okay performance

If you could sum up Squire in three words, what would they be?

Really awesome storyline.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Nealan of Queenscove will always be my favorite. I love the relationship he has with Kel, where they have each other's backs no matter what.


Did Bernadette Dunne do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

This is the one thing I didn't like. Yes, Bernadette Dunne did a good job differentiating the characters from one another. However, I didn't enjoy the voice she used for Kel. It was kind of nasally and I didn't think it would be the kind of voice that a girl between the ages of 14 and 18 would have. That could just be a personal preference.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but unfortunately I couldn't. As with any audiobook, it was simply too long.


Any additional comments?

It's a really good story, with a really strong female protagonist. I highly recommend it.
