it started slow comma what about 50% of the way in it started to pick up. Not to say that there wasn't much action towards the beginning of the story just not action that I cared about. I could add the series to the list of ones I read, but I won't could as a priority.
I really enjoyed this book. It was witty and very well written. The narrator was the perfect fit for this story. I devoured this book in two sittings.
It grabs hold and won't let go. I strongly suggest this book to anyone who enjoys good writing, plot twists, and a not so perfect protagonist.
Bleh. This book might ring your bells (it seems to do so for a lot of people), but it hits all of my buttons instead. I threw it on the DNF pile right before the big-bad showdown because the author described the chaos void as the (paraphrasing here) lack of even emptiness, which makes no sense. I had been letting things like that slide for the majority of the book, but a paragraph on the exxxtreme chaos and voidness of *this* chaos void was a paragraph too far.
Additionally, the protagonist is a jerk, which I could probably handle if the book wasn't written in first person snark, forcing me to constantly hear his sarcastic teenager thoughts about how hardcore he is.
There were some interesting worldbuilding bits and the glimmer of promise in some of the supporting cast, but not even the interesting premise of book number two could get me through that last hour and a half. If you can convince me that the sequel 1) gets over the protag's backstory and on to something fun and 2) shows off the protag's emergence into adulthood, I'll consider it. Otherwise, I'm moving on.
The narrator was ok. I wouldn't avoid books narrated by him in the future.
This held my interest throughout, but it was not a "can't put it down" book. An uber religious person would not like the underlying premise: the beings running heaven and hell have issues and humans are caught in the crossfire, the reason why our main character starts out on his vendetta. The story is told in first person, which was enjoyable. The main character is a cross between Bruce Willis in Diehard and Eeyore. The narrators' voice is a good choice for picturing the character, but at times does not change enough to easily identify who's talking. The ideas are clever and new. If there is a sequel, I would be curious.
Narration is everything in audiobooks!
Narration is good
Story is good and has like able characters this was a nice surprise
Cursing was a bit but overall good book
It was a "page turner" kept me wanting to listen to more. I will get more of the series
Dirty streets of heaven by Tad Williams , Fallen Angel theam
I consume lots of audio content and did find this to keep my interest .
amazing story and really good fun! I highly recommend to anyone who likes sci-fi. reminded me of Constantine on steroids
who am I?
I kept thinking, "Oh, I've jumped into a book in the middle of a series, and I don't know the backstory." I googled around and found that no, this IS the first book in the series. The backstory is explained along the way. Interesting concept, unlike anything I remember reading. I've since read (listened to) a couple of others in the series.
