I am an avid reader of storytelling books. By writers, critics, publishers, or people who tricked me into believing they happened to find something about writing without participating in it. Some people do. Probably.

This book is the brightest most sensitive and intelligent book I have ever read on the subject. It makes you feel understood and lifts your spirit without lying to you or making you believe there is any easy way. It gives wonderful practical advice, even though it isn’t its primary purpose or quality.

Ann Lamott deepened my understanding of writing and what it’s like being a writer. I read this book three times and the rendition by Susan Bennett is absolutely excellent.

Excellente traduction, lecture trop zélée

J’ai beaucoup aimé redécouvrir l’histoire incroyable de celui qui a survécu et l’univers de Poudlard dans cette lecture. En revanche le lecteur, excellent quand il lit les passages de narration, fait trop de zèle dans les dialogues, et prend des voix difficilement supportables dans les dialogues. On comprend que les Dursley aient des voix épaisses, mais moins que McGonagall, Hagrid et même Harry aient des voix d’abrutis. Dommage, la lecture en souffre vraiment.

More like “just the story of myth”

This course is good for Beotians. Mister Fears takes great length to re-tell in a very plain way the story of very famous myth. This can be interesting for the right audience. I have two criticism though :

- the point of view is very explicitly US centered, religiously, philosophically and culturally. Being French, this doesn’t always resonates with me.
- the tale of famous myth can be interesting but it lacks some kind of perspective, either cultural with a comparison with some other mythology, or philosophical (as the title hints to) with an explanation of the behavourial implication.

This is a great course, but I have to say I am a little disappointed considering the price.

La lectrice est bonne et agréable à entendre, mais les personnages ne sont pas reconnaissables dans les dialogues.

Le roman lui même est sans grand intérêt, la narratrice est une ingénue insupportable, l'intrigue assez attendue et sans rebondissement.

Très joli livre pour adolescents

L'intrigue est assez simpliste mais l'ensemble est touchant et écrit dans une langue claire. Parfait pour des adolescents.

Heart wrenching and haunting

Everything is to love about this audiobook. The book itself is a thing of beauty (the dark hellish kind) with incredible character work, from the génialissime main trio to the deep credible reality of the secondaries, and a superb plot invoking the steadiness and power of ancient tragedies.
The performance of the actor is also excellent, one of the best I heard to date, not overzealous neither too plain. I could listen to Eberneze all day !

Good premise but execution a little annoying

The voice performer is giving his all to make these characters unique but the different accents are a little irritating.

The story starts with a good premise but ends up being some kind of comedy Roger Rabbit style. The characters really are caricatures (stoner, pin-up, bitter comedian) and the actual story quickly loses pace. The universe is a rather clunky ensemble of goofy ideas and puns.

J'ai adoré ce livre qui conduit inexorablement son lecteur au travers de son récit terrifiant. L'écriture est très épurée, et trouve toujours le détail qui met mal à l'aise, voire emplit de visions d'horreur.
