Yes, I really enjoyed listening to the narrator. His accents and ability to pronounce very difficult words was impressive, plus his timing was great.
The main character (Atticus) has a dog named Oberon and I laughed out loud hearing the two of them interact.
I enjoyed the interactions that Atticus had with his elderly Irish neighbor, as well as with his dog.
I would listen to this Book again because it is very interesting and the Reader makes it fun. Oberon is a funny dog. Anyone who likes Dresden would love this book and vice versa.
I though that this combination of reality/fae would never work this well! It's one of the most funny books I've ever heard! Congratulations!
Say something about yourself!
Hounded, by Kevin Hearne, is a great introduction to a very good series about the druid Atticus O’Sullivan. The characters, the story and the ambience really made this a great listen. Unfortunately the experience was marred by the publisher, a couple of days after I listened to Hounded, I went back to get the next part in the series, only to find it unavailable in my part of the world (Sweden).
Not only was books one through three, including the one I had already got, gone, but strangely, book 4 was, and is still available.
I keep getting bummed out by these strange deals both on Amazon and Audible. Parts in series are made unavailable on what seems to be the whim of the publishers. I really wish Amazon and Audible would put some pressure on the publishers so these things don't keep happening.
Anyway, I really wanted to continue listening to the story of Atticus O’Sullivan, but I couldn't. So I purchased the books for my Kindle instead.
Finally, I strongly recommend Kevin Hearne and the Iron Druid Chronicles, it's a great listen, or read in my case.
Yes, despite the silly cover art it's quite an enjoyable fun listen.
Loved that this was not paranormal romance, but rather a easy to digest tale of an ancient druid living a modern day life in Arizona and the gods and monsters he consorts with.
Fabulous performance! But, and I am clearly in the minority here... I really disliked the main characters dog, Oberons' scooby doo vocal delivery. It always pulled me out of an otherwise fantastic performance and fun plot.I'd suggest you listen to a sample so you can get a taste as you might not be as bothered as I was.
I will probably read the sequels as opposed to listening, then I can bestow a more erudite tone to Oberon.
Very enjoyable tale especially if you enjoy mythology.
The characterization is flawless. Each voice can be easily distinguished.
I love his interpretation of Oberon.
I love the interaction of Atticus with Mrs. MacDonaugh and the verbal repartee between Oberon and Leif Helgarson.
It made me laugh out loud.
The premise of the 2100 year old druid kept alive by the fact that his existence pissed off a major death goddess's immortal enemy.
It was a kind of swashbuckling tale, akin to taking Lord of the Rings and having it be rewritten by Christopher Moore.
The wry humour and the different fully fleshed voices of the character, particularly the Widow McDonough and Oberon, the dog sidekick.
Very good storyline and humor, however for a 4000 year old drewid the main character has the meturaty of a 17 year old.
Great story, and the experience was greatly enhanced by the narrator. His "Oberon" voice is fantastic! As long as Luke Daniels narrates the series, I will continue paying for the audiobook instead of borrowing the books from the library.
