The Book of Boy - an audiobook review
by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Read by Tim Gerard Reynolds
Recorded Books, 2018
Suspend your modern beliefs and enter medieval France in the Jubilee year of 1350.
I recently reviewed The Book of Boy for AudioFile Magazine. (my review is linked here) I can't reprint my review in its entirety, but I highly recommend this unusual mystical, medieval fantasy which harbors more than one surprise. With one minor exception (that I address in my review), the narration is stellar. I assume that the print version is also excellent. It's received great reviews and has the bonus of being an illustrated novel.
Whether audio or print, I highly recommend that you read this one!
