When the initial Nina Kimberly podcast came out, I did not listen. I heard the first chapter in the Space Casey (great podcast) feed, and Nina's voice sounded way too annoying for me to want to listen. When I heard it was being remastered, I took a chance and listened, and found that Nina's voice in this edition had all of the same feeling of the 'original' without any of the annoying-ness. I've been listening ever since. So far (episode 3), the story is well written with interesting and believable characters. I especially like the interactions with Nina and the Dragon. I believe the visual imagery created in those sections provides a lot more descriptive interaction than a regular speaking character would. Give this book a listen. If you are a fan of fantasy in general, or a fan on unconventional fantasy, or in some cases not a fan of fantasy at all, you should enjoy this story! I am!
