This was not a good grouping of stories. I love Diana's writings so it was somewhat worth it for that but honestly I tried to give the other authors a shot in an effort to find more authors I would enjoy. There are maybe 2 others that are decent but no-one else is a Wow.
Great variety of different stories in different styles. Cool way to discover new writers one might want to read more of.
I definitely would recommend this to my friends, especially the ones who love fantasy and science fiction.
I liked to take a break between stories. There is hardly a break between the end of one story and the beginning of the next, though. That I found somewhat annoying because you want the previous story to fade out in your mind before the next one is sprung on you.
I really only bought this for G. R. R. Martin's story, but there are some good listens among the others as well.
Yes. To review some of the Authors I was introduced to in this collection
Variety with a common theme
Ease of listing. Could have been more animated with the charters
This is a nice collection of short stories by a variety of authors. Made good for short listening
Great, Short Sharp Stories, all with something to tell; all looking at different type of Warriors. And due to all the different authors you really do get a varied and interesting variety of similar based but very different characters. Well worth the read and good value even if it cost twice as much.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
YA,THE WHOLE BOOK SHOULD BE BY GEORGE R.R MARTIN.
HE WAS OK.
I FOUND THREE TO LISTEN TO,LISTEN TO G. R.R MARTIN ON PART FOUR.
Tell us about yourself!
Less upfront narrative...much too wordy and didn't get to the point. First story had me ready for a nap. I'll skip to the Gabaldon story and see if it gets better.
I loved the introduction! It made me want to try all new genres and to just pick up a book, any book and start to read it, regardless of genre or author. Some of the stories were good, some bizzare, some thought provoking, and some were way out there. I love the premise of the book (stories about Warriors regardless of genre) but some of the stories were nothing I would ever want to read again and I know what authors I would never even consider reading again. The narration was excellent. He sounded like he was talking to you, not reading and especially not overacting his reading.
If you like the idea of killing others off, especially the protagonist, this would be the book for you. The male reading leaves a bit to be desired.
This is one of the worst books I have ever listened to.The book was touted as a book about Warriors; however, it is a collection of short stories, and only two were worth listening to. Most of the time it was difficult ti know when the reader moved from one story to the next. I believe the reason confusion existed is because most of the stories left the reader hanging. Many time the story really did not have a conclsion and left the characters unresolved.
If you are looking for stories with warriors that succeed this is not the book for you. Most of the hero's are really victims or bullies. One story is about a woman who was abused, and this woman was touted as the warrior since the story was about her, turned out to be a serial murder. I do not consider this person to be warrior regardless of the brutality done to her.
I found most of the stories boring and confusing. I do not recommend this book.
