This is the continuation of the Simon Snow saga, which started in Rainbow Rowell’s FanGirl as a subplot, and then got its own novel with Carry On, thrusting you deep into the teen wizarding world of Simon Snow and his vampire boyfriend Baz. I tried picking up Wayward Son awhile ago, but couldn’t quite get into it.
That is until, a colleague recommended that I try out the audiobook. I’m not a huge audiobook person, but this one was well worth the listen! Narrated by British actor Euan Morton, the story comes to life in his hands. He voices all the different characters with such uniqueness that it is hard to not listen to the whole thing without laughing at his superb comedic performance.
As my colleague put it, it’s like having your very own personal one-man radio play!
