The Rook  - Daniel O'Malley

Parts of this book still really crack me up...especially in the audio narration I have from the library. Katy Carmichael is a great reader for this book. She seems to get the tone of Myffanwy Thomas just right.


However, while I am still enjoying listening to this, I also get the feeling that a) some parts of the story could have been left out as some of the action scenes are a bit repetitive, and b) I'm missing something about our MC, Myffanwy Thomas, in the way of internal thoughts or characterisation. I can't put my finger on it at this point.
