I picked up The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. because it was a sponsor of a Book Riot podcast and it sounded interesting. When they were talking about it they kept saying D.O.D.O. as if it was an acronym but in reality the audio book says dodo, like the bird. So you say it as the word not the letters. Not that it matters..
If you don’t already know, I love the Discovery of Witches, All Souls Trilogy and this had some of those buzz words. Witches. Magic. Time travel. I was down. Am still down. I picked this book with my first month’s Audible credit and it’s going very well! It’s a 24 hours 29 mins audiobook. If you’re not an audiobook lover you may not know, most adult fiction books are on average only 10-12 hours. So this one was a doozy.
I’m going to go on a tangent here but it’s going to make sense. You know those action movies that have multiple bad guys? This is like that. There are multiple story lines. The story it begins with goes off into another story, which continues into another story. At the end it’s basically an unrecognizable story about a character you weren’t even introduced to until page 300 something. I’m making it sound bad, but it’s not. I found it interesting the whole way through. I skim, so it’s good that I listened to most of it because there are some parts where I was like, what on Earth is going on. Lots of scientific terms and what not. It is open for a sequel, although with a book that long you shouldn’t need one (753 pages).
