I really enjoyed listening to the book, but was disappointed by the ending. I like Scott Brick, the narrator very much.

This book was easy to get into and starts off fast! its one of those books you really shouldn't read until all of the series is out because it will drive you crazy waiting for the next one!
This is a decent story. Very similar to Stephen King. Scott Brick is a terrible narrator. He has a nice voice but his performance (as always) is WAY too melodramatic. It really distracts from the story for me. I almost didn't buy it when I saw he was narrating but the book intrigued me.
I really enjoyed Part 1 but found the next few to be a little slow. However, things started to pick up in Part 6 and didn't stop. I appreciated the narration and the writing style.
very good listen until the final few minutes. it seemed like someone said "time"s up! finish now!" i guess there will be a sequel?
Reader, writer, listener. Thank God for audiobooks!
The narrator did a good job with voicing different characters, did not distract from the story but the story itself was long (which is fine) but the ending was so abrupt it was a disappointment for me. If you're going to write a long book why end it with little to no resolution???
About half of this book is freaking awesome. Its as good as they get. Unfortunately the other half is so freaking pointless that I had to fast forward or quit listening all together. I think you could cut out all the crap, add about 50 lines to tie it together and have a really good book.
If I had any idea this was a vampire book I wouldn't have used one of my credits. I do not get the facination with vampires, I will be glad when it passes.I think there should be a RED star on these books to let you know what you are getting into.The story may have been good, it was lost on me when the vampires arrived. The male narrator is a good reader but the cadence of his speech is...depressing? At 1st bothersome, then iritating,arriving @depressing. I look forward to epic stories,so 5 dnloads were tempting. Not for me at all, very disappointing.
2.5 stars mostly because I really enjoyed Scott Brick reading this. I read this before... it was called The Stand. This book is long and jumps all over the place. I love a good dystopian/end of the world novel but this felt so unoriginal and sooooo long. There are wonderful bits and pieces but they are surrounded by seemingly endless build-up that lead to emotionally manipulative and predictable resolution. Even though the story is unoriginal, it could be a really good book if the editor had a heavier hand.
This book was delivered in five parts to my ipod. The first part was great, the second and third parts were overly long to the point of almost being boring; I almost gave up! I'm glad I didn't because the last two section's were good, and in the end I was satisfied.
