Trepidant. If I only had one word for this book it would be trepidant. It moves quickly, it builds the characters consistently up, there are no loose ends or "cul de sacks". I appreciate the effort from the author in the reading, not professional at times but always authentic. When possible, I like the voice of the writer backing up his/her work.
It is pure King. What you see, is what you get.

Great story, reading a bit distracting

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an The Good Apprentice gefallen?

Fantastic story, very ellaborated and intelligent. The reading is distracting in some points, I did not really enjoy how the reader makes up voices of characters, I found it confusing at times. But the story pays off. Quite long, needs some patience to make it work.

Too cumbersome for an audio book

Was genau hat Sie an Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell enttäuscht?

It is too complicated to follow it up as an audio book. For example, the list of names is quite long and it is difficult to follow who is who. It includes the reading of footnotes, which I found as a rythm-breaker, an "interruptus" short to speak. I am sure it works better as a normal book.

Great delivery, lots of substance, almost each of them a jewel. I'd give Gaiman, as usual, not five but eighty stars. Or eight hundred. Or eight million.
However, I reserve the last of the 5 symbolic stars because a few of the writings are too personal or simply do not have the same level of excellence, and they seem to be part of the collection just because they exist. Which they do. But just not at the same (estelar) level of excellence
It made me dream and wander off. And for that I am grateful.
