The Lives of Saints- audiobook review

QOTD: Who are some of your auto-buy authors?

AOTD: Some of my auto-authors are Leigh Bardugo, Elizabeth Lim, Tomi Adeyemi and Angie Thomas.

Also,I finished listening to the audiobook of The Lives of Saints a few days ago and I am here with a review of it.


This is a short story collection, the stories are mainly about the origins of the saints and it gives you a little more insight to the grishaverse. First of all I would like to say that the narrators- Ben Barnes and Lauren Fortgang were amazing. I found their narration engrossing and there was not a single dull moment.

As expected the writing style was magical and perfect. I totally enjoyed the short stories, but one major drawback I found was that the stories were forgettable and lacked in depth.  The first few stories were disappointing but the collection does get better as we progress. All the stories are based on similar themes which made it repetitive and somewhat boring.

Overall the stories were good but not something extraordinary. It was nice to be back in the grishaverse after such a long time. If you are fan of grishaverse than I would totally recommend it but I would suggest to keep your expectations low.

I would like to thank Netgalley and Macmillan Audio for providing me with an audiobook to review.
