    Description

    Will dark magic claim their home?

    Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders, but her father’s too kindhearted to collect his debts. They face poverty until Miryem hardens her own heart and takes up his work in their village. Her success creates rumours she can turn silver into gold, which attract the fairy king of winter himself. He sets her an impossible challenge - and if she fails, she’ll die. Yet if she triumphs, it may mean a fate worse than death. And in her desperate efforts to succeed, Miryem unwittingly spins a web which draws in the unhappy daughter of a lord.

    Irina’s father schemes to wed her to the tsar - he will pay any price to achieve this goal. However, the dashing tsar is not what he seems. And the secret he hides threatens to consume the lands of mortals and winter alike. Torn between deadly choices, Miryem and Irina embark on a quest that will take them to the limits of sacrifice, power and love.

    Excellent Russian Fairytale

    This is as usual a great fairytale from Novik but the narrative changes POV often without saying the name of the person speaking or really indicating that anything has changed making it difficult to follow at times. I enjoyed it, but this might be easier to follow in print than audio.

    Make This for tv!

    At first I thought it a bit ‘wordy’ but it is a true fairytale. Following the logic of the fairytale and giving us 3 strong female leads ready to change the world and give up everything they know.
    At the end I shouted out loud that this must be put on some screen in some way. I woke up my boyfriend who got a long lecture on the value of non euro/usa-centered literature with strong female leads and a story where the story twists aren’t out of the blue but in par with the story’s own rules.
    I love it and will force everyone I know to listen or read it!

    Fell short

    I found it hard to stay engaged with the story. The characters, plot and style were all a bit flat. It was good to pass the time, but nothing to write home about.

    Brilliant but for the reading

    Although the narrator really reads beautifully, I always felt something was missing. Possibly someone who could have conveyed the culture better through accent/voices would have served the story better. That said, it really is a wonderful story and read very well.

    Engaging fairytale with charming weaknesses

    A beautiful dark fairytale that really makes you care about the characters, even the less important ones - they seem a bit more real and less stereotypical than you might expect in a medieval fantasy setting. A few reviews mention the sudden shifts between characters - it's true, the speaker reads the three main roles quite similarly, but I was only confused the first one or two times. You quickly get the hang of it. The context is usually so different, it becomes clear within a sentence. And later on, more characters are added with more distinct voices - a child, an old woman, a man.

    I loved the frosty setting, all the references to Eastern European fairytales, and the stories of the three women - especially Miriam with her moneylender family, which gave the author a chance to quite subtly weave in the prosecution of Jews throughout the centuries.

    I gave four start because some parts of the story felt a bit too easy for the protagonists - especially Irina turned very quickly from passive daughter of a cunning Duke to politically adept badass pretty unimpressed by nasty demons. On the other hand, I just listened to the whole thing within three days and wasn't bored for a minute, so definitely a recommendation!

    On a side note, I listened to Uprooted first. It's nice to see how the author manages to create a similarly magical and interesting setting while keeping the stories different - in Uprooted, everything goes horribly wrong a lot where in Spinning Silver, plans sometimes work out a bit too well. On the other hand, Spinning Silver skips some of the odd teenage erotic romance of Uprooted. And somehow, the weaknesses of both books pass as charming.

    An old fashioned fairy tale. Very Russian

    This was excellent, it kept me engaged throughout. I cared about all the main characters, although the mother annoyed me. She was so... "simpering" and weak. I loved that the girls rose to the fore and said "No!".

    There was a real "Russianness" to this tale. The Winters were long and hard. The people were hard and pessimistic. Drinking is what men do, and struggle is what women do.

    Katy Sobey did a fine job. She brought the characters to life. There was good distinction between them without it being forced. She did not distract from the story.

    Magical on so many DIFFERENT levels

    First I have to say that *Katy Sobey* is amazing!! I had no issue distinguishing between the charecters, but I did sometimes forget that it was the same person reading! she gave them so much life, all of them: monsters, young ladies, farmer's daughters, men, old women... every one of them had a voice that felt like their own <3
    And of course NN's storytelling along with the intrinsic values she conveys in the story and charecters are quit addictive, she is undoubtedly my new favourite writer!
    (if you love a strong female lead this is for you)

    Novik Spins Silver to Gold - Phenomenal!

    This is a story of a girl who spins silver to gold but really it is a masterpiece of ‘silver’ folk tales Novik skilfully spins together into a ‘golden’ story. It is masterfully done and the narrator has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. She manages male and female voices alike without sounding fake. I was a bit confused a couple of times when the main female character changed quickly but soon got used to who was who. Highly recommend!

    A 6 star book!

    Wow what a find!
    Katie Sobey once again provides an utterly outstanding narration.
    Naomi Novik has spun another throughly enjoyable tale, with a completely satisfying ending!
    Don't hesitate. Like her book Uprooted, Spinning Silver is brilliant!

    A fantastic tale read well

    It took me only a chapter to be drawn into the world and story Naomi Novik has built. At first I wasn't too attached to some of the characters, but by the end... without giving away too much, it's safe to say that you should give all of them a chance!
    Katy Sobey does an incredible job at making all their voices and personalities come to life, so I can only recommend this audio book!

    Tolle Geschichte, zu Beginn etwas verwirrend.

    Ich muss zugeben, zu Beginn habe ich mir mit der Geschichte etwas schwer getan. Die Erzählsichtweise wechselt in zwischen verschiedenen Personen, darunter 3 junge Frauen ähnlichen Alters. Bis diese Figuren so weit etabliert sind, dass man aus dem Text heraus zuordnen kann, wer hier gerade erzählt, wäre es hilfreich gewesen, wenn vor jedem Wechsel der Name gesagt worden wäre.

    Davon abgesehen ist es eine herausragende Geschichte. Zu Beginn scheinbar zusammenhangslose Erzählstränge finden zusammen, verweben sich und teilen sich auch wieder. Die Autorin greift bekannte Märchenthemen (Wie schon der Titel impliziert: Rumpelstilzchens Stroh zu Gold) im weitesten Sinne auf, interpretiert sie aber so anders und neu, dass ich damit keine Inhalte vorweg nehme, wenn ich das hier sage.

    Die Charaktere entwickeln sich mit jeder Wendung weiter und lassen den Leser staunend und sehr gut unterhalten zurück und die 3 Hauptfiguren sind, jede auf ihre ganz eigene Weise, eine Heldin.

    Daher: Aus meiner Sicht uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert.

    Absolutely amazing!

    Everything of the story is completely unexpected, usually you can guess what happens next but here it's all a wonderful surprise. Enemies become loved ones and the characters grow and change in the story to become role models and heros. I've loved everything about it and the speaker is amazing! She has her own unique way to speak each and every character, making is so easy for one to instantly know who's story is being told. I never expected this when I got this book but I'm a big fan of Naomi Novik's writing and Katy Sobey's reading now! Try it, it's worth it.

    A magically wonderful story!

    The intertwined fates of three very different characters are told in a captivating way. Katy Sobey has a wonderful voice, I could listen to her all day long. And on top she did a great job! One of the best books I’ve listened to in a long time!!!

    My only complaint is that it ended

    The story is concise and engaging, the language simple and beautiful, and the performance felt very honest. I so wish there was another book, that this was part of a series, but I’ll have to content myself with what I am given and cherish it.

    Sweet fairy tale

    I was a bit worried in beginning of the book as the story setup is some objectivist fever dream, but the story quickly moves on with romance and fairies. If the story has any hidden morals, it is that marriages are the root of all evil.
