Really liked this book, but for some reason it just didn't grab me the way a lot of ubran fantasy does. I might give the next one a listen. I did love the narrator, excellent job.
Definitely! It combines drama with humor and a little bit of everything else.
He is so versatile! He is the BEST!
I didn't read the book, only listened to audio, but I'm guessing it would be hard to beat this audio version.
The use of mythology in this modern setting is great. Addicus is a great character and extremely cleverly written. Though Oberon steals the show. Some of the funniest one liners I've heard. It continues into the other books of the series.
Too many to tell. The build up to the action sequences are as good as the sequences themselves.
I found myself laughing out loud multiple times throughout the entire book. Mind you this is not a comedy but the cleverness and lightheartedness of the characters is quite humorous.
The only knock on the this book or the other in the series is that I wish they were longer. Hearne completes his thoughts and wraps up the book well but I found myself wanting more. I would literally finish one book in the series and move directly onto the next one. Now that I'm done with the fourth book in the series (the last one published at the time of this review) I am really wanting more!
The book takes something very old and gives it a great somewhat modern twist. Great imagery and it really pulls you in.
Keeps the story going. Makes it feel more like a dramatic play, and guides you on this amazing adventure.
You can only Hide from fate for so long..
This book rocked, and I can not wait for the others!
I have not read any of the books in the series but the performance is so good in the audio version. I will continue to listen to the rest of the series.
the comments his pet dog make are very funny.
I listened to this book while in my car and I found myself looking forward to going for a ride. I could use headphones with my audible app but the book would have gone by to quickly.
looking forward to book two.
I'm a truck driver with a team member, so getting a chance to read a book on paper is difficult. Audible has given me the ability to listen to the books I love to read, and yet not have to take my eyes off the road.
I drive a truck for a living, so I listen to audiobooks to pass the time, but this one should have come with a warning...I laughed so hard I was actually glad I was already stopped as I don't think I could have kept the truck under control. This was a really fun book, and I loved the interaction between O'Sullivan and his dog, Obieron. I'm looking forward to reading/listening to the rest of the series, and think that this book was well worth the time and the money (bought it on a whim without using the credits, and so glad I did too). If you enjoy a fun story with magic, suspense, and a healthy dose of laughter, this is a must read. The character interactions are priceless, and I'm glad to see someone treating such a long lived character with the disregard to political correctness that they would likely have. The narrator was spot on for all the characters I felt, and really used his talents as a voice actor to bring this book to life at well. Great combination of narrator and writer, it was a real treat for me.
No, it's not super in depth but it kept me interested. I like that he works many mythologies in to the books. Performance of reader is pretty darn good.
I recently caught up on the Dresden Files, and was looking for a new urban fantasy. I'd seen Hounded on friends' lists and thought I'd try it out. I'm really glad I did!
Atticus is a great protagonist. Wise without being wrapped up in himself, with a great sense of humour, and without some of Dresden's more annoying rough edges and immaturity.
Hearne's created a fun world and a great cast of characters. And Daniels does a great job of narrating the book. Between the two of them, I keep having to hold back from laughing out loud while walking to work.
Looking forward to listening to more of the series!
I love the scenes with Oberon. Daniels does such a great job of voicing the dog - just enough doggy-ness without slipping over into the absurd. And Oberon provides some great counterpoints to whatever's going on.
Pretty close to it!
