I'm a crippeled old warrior with difficulty typing/writing etc. I used to love reading books, and have read many. I now love audio books.
This book stretches the boundaries' of the paranormal. It is kind of funny, but my inadequate imagination can't get around the paranormal phenomena. This book may appeal to some 13 to 17 years old, but not an old timer like me.
Take Dresden, make him a Druid, and give him a more positive outlook on life and you'll have this unique story. It is an epic tale and the narrator is worthy of it.
I greatly enjoyed Hounded overall. I have to say I consider myself somewhat of a book snob. There are only a few authors I like and I pretty much stick to the books they write because I know I will like them. I tried this because there are no new books out by my standard authors. I'm adding this series to my list.
I have never had the pleasure of a Luke Daniels performance before but he really made the story come alive for me.
Luke Daniels is by far my favorite narrator so far and the story is up at the top as well.
The Iron Druid Chronicles reminds me a lot of The Dresden Files.
I don't know if there is a specific favorite, but the interactions of Atticus and Oberon are all pretty fun.
I've already purchased books 2-4 on the strength of this one and will most likely be using my next couple of months credits to finish out the series.
Listen to all kinds, but mostly enjoy witty light-hearted entertaining reads. Stay away from romance novels & books with heavy violence.
Enjoyed the book. You can't go wrong with a lighthearted entertaining story that is full of sarcasm, humor, and wit.
I read/listen purely for enjoyment and any reviews are based on that. Mostly fantasy, mystery, suspense.
Simply put this book as awesome. Not the deepest thought provoking awesome but just purely entertaining and hilarious. Hounded was in my wish list, which is my hmmm maybe list, for several months. I finally bought it two days ago and bough the second one yesterday. Atticuss is great but his dog flat out fabulous. Book one was fast paced and action packed. Violence, death, monsters, and God's lightened up with a dog's point of view. I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the series, I just wish they were a little longer as I'm used to long epic series and I don't use credits on books that are cost less than one so the first three are cash buys but we'll worth I t in entertainment value. If you are looking for a fun read hounded is a good way to go.
Grandma bibliophile! Audible books make reading with an active life possible.
I got this book because of the excellent reviews it was receiving. I was definitely pleasantly surprised. I listened straight through except for an hour with my mother. Only because I didn't want to miss any part of the book. This was such a fun book, and the narration was spot on for entertainment value. Not over the top or monotonous. I am now a definite fan of Luke Daniels also. I laughed out loud a couple of times, usually when Atticus is talking with Oberon his dog, receiving some strange looks from my own dogs. If only.......
I was a little leery at first with the narrator but once the story progressed he really did an excellent job with the characters and feelings behind each one.
The main characters are very well done and the relationship between Atticus and Oberon is very thought out.
I was a little disappointed with the 'F' word being used so much, but I can't do anything about that...
Audiobook Junkie... Love all types of Science Fiction
I have had this book sitting in my library from last year that I haven't managed to get around to yet. I'm not sure why I had my doubts getting into this book but it was simply fantastic. The narrator brings life to the story and I have to say his impression of Oberon is excellent. I had quite a few laughs along the way. I think this story and its humor may connect best to adults, young adults, fantasy nerds, and dog lovers alike. I had to download the next copy right away and I'm worried I'll go through these books too fast. So Hearne if your reading this, you need to write faster. Good news though, the books seem to be getting longer each novel.
EVERYTHING!!! Luke Daniels, made me keep listening! His "Oberon" kills me! and I could barely wait to buy the next in the series.
The story is great and overall, I'm incredibly happy I took a chance on this book!
Oberon, by far, then Atticus
Everything. I've listened to series of other FAMOUS books, and the narrator barely put effort into their performance in comparison. The accents, voice changes and real reading with feeling, is magnificent!
