you know that family guy scene where Stewie kept saying "cool whip" in a funny way? This is the full length audiobook version. For magicians fans this will be right up your alley, but I did not feel the love for the characters as much as I did in the first book.
Read all 3 books back to back. I enjoyed the story and the feeling of 'Wizard People Dear Reader'.
I couldn't work out why I hadn't read or heard of the Fillory books. only to realise they are the kind of fictional book you wished really existed. As a kid I loved the world of Narnina and I loved the journey into Fillory.
side note on the performance
Mark Bramhall's performance was great during the sarcasm laced dialogues and capturing the irony of scenes. BUT...
Im an Australian and I found Mark Bramhall's pronunciation on a few words really hard to understand, I had to imagine the text to translate. The over emphasis on the 'h' in common words like why, what, wheel, where and which was grating and came across snobbish when the books intended to be modern and accessible. Also the "Australian" accent on Poppy is a New Zealand accent crossed with a quarter Sydney bogan, which definitely doesn't match the character. Not an awesome performance, but the books are a good adventure.
The book is excellent and I thought the narrator done a great job. Highly recommended!
fantasy at it's best but with an adult / darker/more complex outlook than normally seen. truly delightfull and gripping read.
