Enjoyable, fun, easy
Laughed out loud a couple of times
This book has a terriffic reader. You forget there is a reader and see the picture in your head instead. I bought all three of these books because the stories are fun and the reader is so good. It is too bad the Harry Dresden books don't have this reader. Only thing wrong with this book is the way the reader pronounce Saquarro. If you like wizard, druids, witchs, gods, werewolves, vampires and big dogs that talk, you will love these books
Top 3, loved the book and the different voice characters.
Oberon and Atticus's relationship...the dog's point of view is great!
The final battle at the end with the gods, werewolves, whitches and Atticus.
This was a short, fun book to listen to. I will definitely be listening to the follow up books.The author has a great sense of humor and portrays such a fun character.
His enthusiasm and fun sense of humor, he really brings that out more.
It had a wide variety of interesting subjects from Gods and Goddesses to vampires and werewolves
Interesting book but I'm not sure I will continue the series
The dog. Loved the comedy he brought to the book
The story was great. I loved every part with his dog.
I loved the humor of the book between the main character and his dog.
I like Monster Hunter International has the humor and wit compared to this book.
I liked Oberon and the main character.
The interactions with Oberon and his master.
Great audio book to listen to, can't wait to listen to the next one!
I would listen to Hounded again simply for the entertainment value. The characters are interesting and amusing, as is the premise.
I like most of the characters in the story but I loved the Irish Setter, Oberon. He supplied much of the humour and being a dog lover - I could relate!
Luke Daniels has a tongue in cheek way of making the humorous moments work. He's good with the characters' voices and his inflections get the point across nicely between character dialogues as well.
I laughed at Oberon and the main character's interactions with him.
I enjoyed Hounded enough to go and get the next book Hexed as well.
I liked the dog and Luke did a great job reading him.
Nothing extreme but I enjoyed it throughout.
A little short.
Barely. The story is reminiscent of the Dresden Files, except with several flaws. The main character is a modern day druid who's been alive for 21 cemeteries. He encounters several goddesses, and in James Bond fashion sleeps with or almost sleeps with all of them. Furthermore, all his fights are extremely anticlimactic and short.
The only thing that saves the book is his dog, who has some hysterical lines. Beyond that, the book is good if you have nothing else, but don't go out of your way.
It never feels like the character is ever truly threatened. That should change. The other sporting characters need more depth too, particularly the lawyers.
The narrator sounded... Young, I think is the best way to put it. Not bad. He did very good with accents and the dog's voice. A decent but not exceptional narrator.
No. unless the special effects were amazing.
I've been thinking of the Dresden files series during this review, because it certainly feels like the author is trying to capture that same feel.
The first book of the Dresden Files was rough. But it was better than this. The author had his biggest problem with the threat. The character never felt so much threatened as inconvenienced. Further, the sexual energy between the main character and every goddess he met was really irritating. Bond and Kirk could get away with it, but this character just didn't seem suave enough.
I did enjoy the world he set up, and the dog (and widow) had great lines, so I may give a second book a shot, but I won't be going out of my way either.
The books in this series are not long-- 6 or7 hours-- but every minute is a joy. Interesting, funny, great blend of ancient druid in modern setting. And I love the Irish Wolfhound. He is fantastic and he is voiced perfectly. If you love fantasy, you will love these books. Get all three in the series!!
