Great story but I should've read it instead. Didn't care for the narrarator's (Soneela Nankani) interpretation. Lacked emotion in voice at pivotal moments. Some of her male voices came off creepy. That said, the actual written story was wonderful. I regret that I switched back and forth between book & audio. I like to listen to audio when going to bed. I set timer for thirty minutes but never make it passed ten minutes. It's my fault and was easily preventable. I will most likely be purchasing a physical copy and revisiting the Thieving Forest. If you enjoy historical fiction, it's hard not to like this one.
