Harry Potter's stories never fail to enlighten me with its metaphors and allusions to what could really be found in reality. If the piece is not just merely an audible wonder and is even a lesson-filled one, then it deserves to be checked out by fans of its genre. Thank you for your echoing the tone and timbre of the work through your own write-up.

I am drawn to stories about parallel worlds but this one sounds a bit eerie. Is it scary?

Thanks for the review!
Not really scary, no, but it is eerie.

I'm trying to figure out how I would review an audio book - cos you have done quite a good job of it. I'm intrigued about the parallel worlds and how Will came back! Great review!
Thank you 😊

Audible books are great specially when you want to rest your eyes, but it necessarily does not give you that feeling of been in the book. I know about that because I would run after and audible book to rest my eyes. This sounds like more of a hide-and-seek kind of a read. I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Thank you for your review!

:tiphat: Great review! I like stories like this, so I'll have to check it out. Great way to start the review as well, got my attention!

I often pass up on audio books as the narration can sometimes be monotonous, but it seems as though this one may be an exception. You make the story sound so enjoyable that I am even considering trying it, despite it not being my usual genre. Many thanks for your enthusiastic take on this book.

This review is so perfectly and beautifully written, I wanted this book in my hands ASAP. Parallel worlds have always been intriguing and something I’m interested in, I mean, they have to be real, right?
Is this book only available as an audiobook?

Dew Pellucid's idea was very original, as far as our reflections having their own personalities. I enjoyed the book as well and I hope that the author continues to expand her universe. Great review and summary.
Give me the courage to get through this week...or at least a big bar of chocolate :D

Thank you all for reading my review, and for sharing your thoughts. This is also available as a traditional book, for those who do not enjoy audiobooks. It may even be available as a volunteer review, although I’m not positive. It sounds like those of you who have already read the book enjoyed it, which is great. I hope more of you give it a shot 😊

Though, generally I don't enjoy reading children books- because according to this review the book seems its a child's book, with pictures of animals in it. This book raise my interest in it.
Good job! great review.
