#1 New York Times bestselling author!
Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who's ever been chosen.
That's what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he's probably right.
Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here--it's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up.
Carry On is a ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We first discovered Simon Snow in Rainbow Rowell’s utterly charming YA novel Fangirl—that book’s teenage heroine was obsessed with the series starring the magician-in-training. With Carry On, Rowell has gone and written one of Simon’s magical adventures so we can all join in the fun. Entering his final year of magic school, Simon must deal with roommate trouble and romantic problems while also facing down a magic-depleting monster who happens to look just like him. Narrator Euan Morton’s playful delivery and subtle character accents make this witty-but-affectionate Harry Potter send-up pure fun.
This is my all time favourite book, and the podcast did not disappoint. It was paced well and the narrator was a delight to listen to, no matter whose perspective he was reading. I recommend the book to everyone I know, and I will now be recommending the podcast as well.
