Listen too, over and over again

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

Great narrator, to a fantastic Young Adult Fantasy series. Very smooth and easy too listen too. Makes the story alive and vibrant. The Story is 3rd in the series, and I have found each book is just as good as the last, with a story that evolve's and enriches in details, story and character.

What other book might you compare Drowned Wednesday to and why?

The Old Kingdom by ironically the same author, while made for a slightly older audience, is the closest likeness that comes straight too mind. Also Tamora Pierce's style.

Any additional comments?

Read it, Listen too it. And you will want too do it all over again, and again.

Great continuation of a great series

What made the experience of listening to Drowned Wednesday the most enjoyable?

I love the narration of this audiobook. The story continues to be fantastic and intriguing, i cant wait to see whats next.

Who was your favorite character and why?

just in the other books of the series Suzy Turquoise Blue is my favorite character she is so independent and sassy. She also works really well with Arthur to create a great team in the narrative

Which character – as performed by Allan Corduner – was your favorite?

Suzy Turquoise Blue is really bought to life by Allan Corduner, he just gives her character vibe and humour.

Getting better!!

As I re-read this series after years I've been reminded how I get more involved as the series progresses. I really had to push through the first two, but something about Drowned Wednesday has recaptured my fascination with the series.
Glad I'm continuing through them!

Absolutely awesome!!!!!!! It just as good as Harry Potter plus more and there’s extra battles and adventures!!!! My favourite character is probably Sun Scorch.
