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.
I was completely into this book from start to finish. The narrator did a very good job. The ending let me down a little but that is just one opinion. In my opinion, the story was awesome except for the last 10 minutes. Considering the length of the book, that is still pretty good.
This book is takes us back to the heyday of King and "The Stand". The undercurrent of vampiric infection is delivered well enough. The book is performed in a slow droll that can be trying from time to time. It felt that within the vastness of the novel there would have been a little more text dedicated to suspense or action. Instead it's a lot of back story character development that feels wasted on supporting cast and moments. 3 stars because I wasn't blown away by it, just entertained.
Did you write this Mr.King ;)? No, but it does feel like a S.King book. Which is a good thing I think. It was a good story. But.. Warning it does just drop off at the end. Im assuming there is a second part to follow. The book was good but not what I would call great. It drug on at times, and at other times I must admit I was lost for some time. If I was able I would rate this at a 3.5. Worth a listen, but warning you really need to pay attention if you don't want to get lost.
